Who should buy AEG CX7-2-45AN

  • If you are new to cordless vacuums, and don’t want to risk spending too much money, the AEG CX7-2-45AN might be suitable for you because it has an affordable price.
  • If you have furry pets in your home, you might appreciate the Motorised CX7 Animal Care Nozzle of the AEG CX7-2-45AN that can easily pick up pet hairs from the sofa, bed or other furniture.
  • If you have noise sensitivity, the AEG CX7-2-45AN might be suitable for you because, compared to other cordless vacuums, it has a lower noise level of up to 79 dB.
  • If you are not used to using heavy equipment, the AEG CX7-2-45AN might suit you because it only weighs 2.5kg, and will not strain your arms if used for a long time.
  • If you have a lot of hair on your floor, you might appreciate the cleaning nozzle of the AEG CX7-2-45AN because it is not prone to hair tangles, which means you won’t have to frequently clean its bristles like on other cordless vacuums.

Who should NOT buy AEG CX7-2-45AN

  • If you live in a large house, you might be disappointed with the battery life of the AEG CX7-2-45AN because it can only last up to 45 minutes on the lowest suction setting which might not be enough to clean your entire home. You might want to check the Shark IZ251UK that comes with two detachable batteries which give you double battery life. You might also want to check the Dyson Cyclone V10 with a battery life of 60 minutes.
  • If you prefer cordless vacuums that offer various cleaning attachments, the AEG CX7-2-45AN might not be the one you are looking for. You might be more interested in the Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute with six cleaning attachments, or the Tineco PURE ONE S12, with seven cleaning attachments.
  • If you only have carpets in your home, the AEG CX7-2-45AN might not impress you because it is slightly less powerful on carpets than on hard floors. It can pick up large debris from carpets but it might not thoroughly clean your carpets.

Verdict

The AEG CX7-2-45AN is great for those who are exploring cordless vacuums for the first time, since it is very easy to use, and has an affordable price so that you won’t have to risk spending a lot of money.

It is easily manoeuvrable and lightweight, so it feels light in the hand when moving around your home. However, it might not reach under low-lying furniture such as the bed, cabinet or sofa because its dust bin is located on the lower part of the AEG CX7-2-45AN, which makes it bulky and unable to fit in tight spaces. Therefore, you might not be able to clean the accumulated dirt under the furniture. Other cordless vacuums such as the Dreame V11, and the Samsung Jet 70 Turbo VS15T7031R1/EN have their dust bin on the upper part of the cordless vacuum (near the handle), so they can reach and clean under low-lying furniture.

The AEG CX7-2-45AN has strong suction power, but it might not be strong enough to thoroughly clean a carpet. Although it works well on hard floors, and can pick up large debris from carpets.

The AEG CX7-2-45AN’s main floor nozzle has LED headlights, which is helpful if you have a lot of dark corners since it illuminates areas in front of the nozzle. Aside from its main floor nozzle, it also has a mini motorized tool called the Motorised CX7 Animal Care Nozzle. It is excellent to use for cleaning pet hairs that are on the sofa, bed, car seats or other furniture since it is compact yet still powerful.

The downside of the AEG CX7-2-45AN is that it has a small dust bin. It can only contain 0.5L, which means you might have to frequently empty its bin. However, if you live in a small house, its dust bin capacity might be enough to hold all the accumulated dirt in your home, but if you want a larger dust bin, you might want to check the Shark IZ251UK that has a 0.7L dust bin capacity, or the Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute with a 0.76L dust bin capacity.

Overall, the AEG CX7-2-45AN is great for those who are looking for a budget cordless vacuum. It is also great for hard floors, and for those who have furry pets in their home.

AEG CX7 Animal Quality & Performance
Design - Performance particularly for Parquet & Tiled Floors is exemplary. Maintenance is a dream insofar as removal and reassembly of brush componet is concerned. Re-charging after every use is not an issue.
