What's Included with the SEBO Felix 1 Vacuum Cleaner
- Excellent Vacuum
My son vacuums the apartment and his reaction was to voluntarily vacuum four days in a row. We could not believe the difference. The apartment carpeting looked new. We also turned the vacuum into a canister and did the stairs and ceiling fans. What a difference you can feel in the air with the removal of all that dust. I am completely satisfied with my purchase and would buy again.

SEBO Felix 1 Premium Vacuum Cleaner
Let's face the facts. Most home appliances are pretty dull. It's not often that you find a home appliance or device that successfully combine form and function. The most well known example of this success if likely in your pocket, a smartphone. The with the Felix Premium uprights, SEBO takes a page from this book and combines stylish design and a unique look with versatility and solid performance in the realm of home cleaning. Let's take a look at why the SEBO Felix 1 uprights are the choice for long lasting versatility, reliable cleaning and stylish design.
What I liked about the SEBO Felix Premium:
From the start you have your choice of three styles/patterns for your Felix. My personal favorite is Rosso, which is a block pattern of red, white, pink and grey blocks, with the body, handle and power head of the Felix. Onyx is a sleek black, white and grey themed model, while the last model features a white/grey oval pattern, aptly named White. These options give you the chance to choose a vacuum that fits your personal tastes rather than settling for what the manufacturer drummed up from a "focus group" session or a color/pattern is just bland enough not to be disagreeable to most people. Regardless of which model you choose, the features and performance will be the same.
Though the Felix 1 Premium is smaller than most traditional uprights, it performs much like a canister vacuum cleaner. You receive two floor tools, both of which are very effective for what they are designed to clean. The ET-1 is an independently driven power head with a 12" cleaning path. While this power head only edges (has edging bristles for cleaning close to walls and furniture) on one side, it is designed to be easier to clean than others. The brushroll can easily be removed, which makes it easy to clear away tangled hair and fiber or replace should the bristles become worn. This power head also has four height settings, which make it suitable for nearly any style of carpet, and height sensor that will let you know when you need to adjust the height for optimal cleaning. Lastly, you can use this power head to clean smooth floors. So if you're vacuuming and need to quickly go over an area of smooth flooring, push the green illuminated button on the power head. This will turn the power off and allow for straight suction cleaning only, perfect for areas of tile, hardwoods or linoleum.
When it's time to switch to smooth floors, take the ET-1 off and snap on the Premium Parquet brush. This bristle brush maintains powerful suction and glides along smooth floors. When you're done vacuuming, just use the hose to remove any entangled debris and you're finished!
So while it has different floor tools, like a canister, it can also be used similarly to a handheld vacuum. Remove the floor tool all together and you can use the wand and hose combination with one of the included accessories to clean furniture or get to those hard to reach areas. Overall the hose reach is a respectable 6', not tremendous but enough for most people.
Like most uprights the SEBO Felix 1 vacuum has an ergonomic handle with power and suction control right at the tip of your fingers. Unlike traditional uprights, you can actually adjust the height of the handle, which can reduce having to bed over while you vacuum. The Felix is very maneuverable and moves across the floor less like a traditional upright and more like a lightweight stick. But, just because it moves like ones, don't let it fool you. The Felix features one of the most powerful motors SEBO has ever designed and delivers powerful suction, generated by the 1300 watt motor.
Filtration is not lacking with the Felix. This upright uses two filters in addition to the 3-ply dust bag (with sealing cap). A motor filter traps larger microparticles that may make it through the dustbag, but an S-Class filter scoops anything that remains, before the air exits the vac. The S-Class microfilter is unique to SEBO and filters out 99.9% of particles 0.3 microns and larger. A sealed system ensures that there is no air leaking and that air that enters is filtered before it leaves. These make it a good addition to the home of anyone dealing with allergies, asthma or even more severe respiratory problems that can be aggravated by particle allergens and dust.
With a slim body shape, the SEBO Felix upright can lay flat and only has a 6" profile, making it a good way to clean under beds and other low furniture.
Like other SEBO vacuum cleaners, the Felix models come with additional accessories, the crevice tool and upholstery nozzle (it lacks the dusting brush that other models have), and features durable ABS construction. This model is also backed by SEBO's 5-5-7 year warranty. This means the non-wear parts and labor are both covered for five years while the motor is covered for a full seven years. Both are upgrades from the warranty offered by SEBO in the past.
What I did not like about the SEBO Felix Premium:
One issue I found was more a design related conundrum. When using the Felix 1 as a handheld, say for dusting, I don't mind the cord since it means I'm holding a more powerful cleaner, not one that will lose all power in 10-20 minutes (as with other handhelds), but the handle must remain attached. This controls the power and suction when you are using it an upright or as a carry-around. The only other design point I would find that would make this vacuum more convenient is placing brushroll control on the handle. As the Felix Premium upright is currently constructed, while you do have the ability to turn the brushroll off, the button is located on the power head.
The SEBO Felix is a bit louder than some of the other SEBO vacuums, but it still remains comparable to most of the traditional uprights that you'll find in big box stores, including Eureka, Dyson and Hoover. For me this wasn't much of a concern but worth noting.
Aside from a few minor design tweaks, I found the SEBO Felix 1 upright to be an excellent all round vacuum cleaner. It's more versatile than traditional uprights and offer powerful suction combined with high quality air filtration. It's slim and very stylish in appearance. The warranty is on par with the best in the industry but unlike others does cover labor and more than just the motor. If a truly unique but effective and durable upright is what you're looking for, the SEBO Felix 1 upright should be on your short list.
