Best deals from Scarlet

The Scarlett trademark initially positioned itself as a Russian-English brand. The company is registered in the UK, and the production of goods was planned to be carried out in Russia. However, almost the entire range of products is made in factories in China.

Marketing research is carried out in Russia, but the development and implementation of innovation is the work of Chinese engineers. Such a redistribution of tasks allows the release of functional and practical devices to the needs of domestic consumers. An important advantage of Sino-Russian cooperation is a loyal pricing policy.

The compiled rating includes various types of units: conventional, vertical and robotics. All vacuum cleaners are designed for dry cleaning.

1st place - Scarlett SC-VC80B80

Rating Leader - bag assembly high power. At an affordable cost, the vacuum cleaner boasts good technical characteristics: a capacious dust collector, an improved filtration system, a telescope handle, and a practical set of nozzles.

2nd place - Scarlett SC-VC80C11

Unit cyclone type demonstrates good traction - about 320 watts. The main feature is maintaining a stable suction force due to bagless dust collection technology.

Some buyers were unhappy with the short cord. The length of 5 m is enough for a full cleaning of a small room. In addition, sometimes a loud move and a persistent smell of plastic are noted. There are complaints about the stability of the unit - SC-VC80C11 can overturn during sharp turns.

3rd place - Scarlett SC-VC80C91

The multicyclone draws dust well, and it power remains stable. However, after each cleaning, you have to clean the container and rinse the filter.

Cons of the unit: short cable, noisy work.

4th place - Scarlett SC-VC80H12

Another new product from the company in the market of cleaning equipment. SC-VC80H12 - 2 in 1 wired vertical vacuum cleaner. The unit does not have a bulky module on wheels.

  • cyclone - 2 l;
  • options - transformation into a manual mini-vacuum cleaner;
  • completeness - 2 combined nozzles, turbo brush;
  • weight - 5.8 kg;

However, along with these pluses, there are also minuses: a sharp drop in traction when the filter is clogged, container capacity is not enough to service the entire apartment. A significant part of the volume of the dust collector is occupied by the cyclone mechanism.

As the practice of the owners of IS-VC82C05 shows, the unit is suitable for small apartments. When cleaning spacious rooms, you often have to interrupt work and clean the filter.

6th place - Scarlett SC-VC80H07

What to look for when choosing a vacuum cleaner?

In order not to be disappointed in the purchase, it is necessary to understand in advance the features of various vacuum cleaners, determine the model of the dust collector and compare technical specifications with the working conditions: the housing area, the prevailing types of flooring, and accommodation in a pet house.

Types of cleaning equipment

The first cases should decide which type of construction preferable.

All the variety of the model range can be divided into three categories:

  • usual - traditional "barrels" on wheels;
  • vertical
  • robots.

Cylindrical units Do not lose popularity. The modules are universal in use, do a good job of cleaning different coatings, are characterized by high power and throughput.

Bag vacuum cleaner
The disadvantages of traditional devices include: significant energy consumption, inconvenience of storage. The hose and unit take up a lot of space, which is extremely inconvenient in small housing

Vertical vacuum cleaners compact design - a small dust collector and brush are attached to the handle. There are two options for "electric brooms": wired models and battery packs.

Vertical units are often equipped with turbo brushes to facilitate wool collection. In addition, such devices consume less energy and are convenient to store. Cons: increased noise pressure, the difficulty of cleaning under low furniture.

Robotic assistants have the main competitive advantage - independent work with minimal human participation.

Vacuum cleaner robot
Smart technology is oriented in space, recognizes walls, obstacles, approaching stairs. Many models are designed for dry cleaning and mopping

The main disadvantage of robotics is low productivity. It is rather an addition to a more powerful brother. An important minus is the high cost. The price of premium units is many times more than traditional vacuum cleaners.

An additional assessment of the advantages and disadvantages of robotic vacuum cleaners, as well as tips for their selection are given in this article.

Features of different dust collectors

The type of garbage container also affects the quality of cleaning, practicality and ease of maintenance.

In the Scarlet trading line, there are two options for a dust bag:

  1. Bag. The cheapest option. Easy to use - it is not necessary to empty the container after each cleaning. Reusable bags are provided in Scarlet models, they can be replaced with paper bags. Minus - as the container fills, the draft of the device falls.
  2. Cyclone. Contaminants enter the plastic tank and are divided into different fractions. The main idea of ​​technology cyclone filter - conservation of suction power.

Cons: bulkiness of the module, the need to wash the filter. Some models are not designed for the collection of construction waste.

Cyclone vacuum cleaner
Cyclonic vacuum cleaners are louder in operation. Particles of pollution at high speed spin in a dust collector and beat against the walls of the tank

In the Scarlet assortment there are no units with an aquafilter. This type of dust collector provides the most effective cleaning of the outgoing air, as well as its humidification.

Accounting for technical characteristics

An important indicator of the effectiveness of a vacuum cleaner is traction. The optimal suction power of a household device is 300-350 watts.If you plan to clean carpets, cleaning animal hair, it is better to look at the unit for 400-450 watts.

Vacuum cleaner options
Often, manufacturers indicate the maximum power of the vacuum cleaner at the start of work. When filling the dust box, the efficiency of the technique decreases

In addition to power characteristics, attention should be paid to such parameters:

  • tank volume - for spacious rooms choose more capacious tanks;
  • noise - the average figure is 70-80 dB, optimally 66-69 dB;
  • filters - the more filtration levels, the cleaner the air;
  • pipe device - telescopic more convenient composite modules;
  • additional functionality - Auto winding, tank full indication, traction adjustment, smooth start are welcome.

It is desirable that the vacuum cleaner has rubberized wheels to protect the floor from scratches. A soft bumper around the perimeter of the module will protect the furniture from damage during a collision.

  1. In my opinion, bag vacuum cleaners are no longer being produced, because it is very inconvenient. My grandmother had a vacuum cleaner with a bag; it was bought 7 years ago. For me, the important thing in a vacuum cleaner is that it has a lot of power. As well as ease of movement. Noisiness does not matter to me. If they take less money for noise, I will take the cheaper option. The length of the cord is also not important to me, since there are sockets throughout the apartment.

    The price, of course, is tempting, but the quality of their products leaves much to be desired. I took a Scarlett mixer and a juicer - they didn’t work for a month and broke! Tortured returning them under warranty to the store. When buying a vacuum cleaner, sellers also praised Scarlett. Apparently, they are given some kind of allowance for them. I ended up buying Bosch. It turned out more expensive, but the vacuum cleaner is standing, I've been using it for six months now.

      Despite your bad experience, the Scarlett technique is quite normal. And even LG, even Bosh, or any other brand can break. I had a Scarlett vacuum cleaner for a very long time, almost 6 years. True, I do not want such a model with garbage bags, containers are much more convenient. And now, when choosing a new vacuum cleaner, I will fully consider models from Scarlett.

      Agree. Unfortunately, the purchase of Scarlett equipment is a lottery. Of the 15 household appliances, in total, purchased by different members of my family in different cities of Russia, only one electric kettle has lived for more than a year. But one does not have to be surprised, it is enough to disassemble at least once a cheap household appliance - an abundance of frail plastic parts, cheapened to impossible circuits ... Actually, how much they paid, they got it. This technique is not for a large family, of course.
