We have to admit that we are surprised that such capable vacuum cleaner is delivered in such small form factor which is definitely a plus. 
Unlike our Miele Complete C3 Cat & Dog PowerLine which is an amazing vacuum cleaner but way bigger, the Philips FC8779/09 more compact dimensions help for navigating in tighter spaces.

Another very big benefit of the Philips FC8779/09 is the 12m long cable which allows to clean the whole flat or house without plugging it couple of times. 

The TriActive nozzle applies 3 cleaning actions and is quite effective for most surfaces.

The FC8779/09 is mostly sold on the European market where you can buy it for around 170 Euro

That was our consumer product review of the Philips FC8779/09 vacuum cleaner which was tested for couple of months now. Hopefully durability is on a good level and it will last for years to come.
