tony, poole

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Good looking,easy to use
Bad points:
product literature didnt really explain sensor type tumble dryers very well nor did it explain that they do not get very hot whilst drying! So much so that we called out an engineer within two days of purchase to check to see if it was working at all.Times taken to dry clothes are far longer than expected (and especially having had a conventional dryer for the past 12 years (which got really hot).Sensor driers take some getting used to.

Martin, Guildford

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very pleased. Huge capacity and seems to do a better job than the old one it replaced but more quickly. Sensor feature is nice - we mostly dry mixed washes on the "Cotton - Cupboard Dry" setting and have had few problems. Occassionally socks - if rolled up in the wash - will come out damp, but you can just take the remaining dry laundry out and start the programme again. Haven't seen the problem that a previous reviewer had where the dryer refused to dry in this situation - in our case the socks were only slightly damp, but the drier finished them off without problem. Has a 40min timed program as well which I think overrides the sensor, but we haven't felt the need to use it so far. We've had very good experience with Bosch appliances in the past (Fridge/Freezer, Dishwasher) and they didn't disappoint here either. Very much recommended.
Bad points:
Slightly noisy (but I think they all are). At end of cycle the drier goes into an anti-crease mode where it tumbles the load periodically for an hour after it's finished. This is a nice feature, but unless you look at the control panel/light, it misleads you into thinking that the drier is still drying - a beep or something at the end of the programme would have been nice.
