Black & Decker SVJ520BFS


The funky blue and grey SVJ520BFS Smart Tech cleaner brings sensor technology to Black & Decker's dual-purpose stick/handheld Dustbuster range. This cordless, bagless model senses floor type and increases power accordingly, measures and indicates...

Light, easy to use and versatile – but the Black & Decker SVJ520BFS lacks true cleaning power.

Smells lovely

Only worked for a month then stopped charging. Impossible to get in touch with anyone to fix it.

It is light and as I live in a fairly small flat gets into all those hard to reach places, the dustbuster detatches quite easily and it is also straightforward to empty the dirt out.

The extension on the dustbuster can be a bit sticky to work.

Cordless And Powerful and I love it. Easy to clean out and washable filter. Great for Vacuuming the Car. Lithium battery so it doesn't suffer from memory fade and power loss. like Cadium and NihM batteries do

The price at over £100 is a high price for a cordless. The other brand cordless vacuum cleaners at less than 36 w power don't seem as good to be honest.

Black & Decker SVJ520BFS


I bought this because I have three dogs and that is a lot of dog hair, but I didn't want to bring the hoover from where it lives upstairs down on a regular basis. I am able to clean the whole of the downstairs rooms three times on one charge....

The cleaner has two power settings, I really only ever use the lower one, however to turn the cleaner off, one must first go to the higher setting, then turn off. This is as major a niggle as I can come up with!!
