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 five 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 Fun is a bold orange color. Your other two choices are a white/grey oval pattern,
aptly named White, and Ice Blue with features a blue pattern with a white body. 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
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 five year warranty.
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.
