Review of Electrolux ultrasilencer 3980P vacuum cleaner
The least noisy vacuum cleaner I have tried. I would buy it again.
It is the least noisy vacuum cleaner I have tried. Calling it quiet is simply wrong.
A cushion is quiet. A computer hard drive can be said to be quiet. An idling 200hp car engine is less noisy than this vacuum cleaner.
To compare: one can have a conversation beside it with only a slightly raised voice. One can listen to music from a hifi if one doesn’t listen to the music but just hear it. But only if the cleaner is set to level 3 of 5.
At level 5 it is still less noisy than other cleaners I have tried, but forget talking without it being painful.
The metal tubes are oval-squarish. This means one cannot use it for hand tools in the garage which always have round tubing. The tubes’ connections are fastened with buttons which feels alright. I cannot say f it is better or not than regular round-tube-friction-connections.
There is no locker for extra tools in the machine but they/it are/is on the tubes, by the handle. Bigger machine or clumsier tubes; a matter of taste.
I can’t say if the suction is better or worse. The handle likewise. Corner handling likewise.
I would like to give kudos to the manufacturer for finally finding out that users don’t like noisy machines but I don’t; since it took them waay to long time. 100+ years.
