SEBO is using Hospital-grade filtration and the filters are great for people with allergies and asthma. There are 3 layers of filtration:
1. The bags - 3/4 layered bags hold most debris, keeping it away from the air filters. Before disposal, they can be fully sealed, so no dust particle escapes.

3. Exhaust Filter filters the air that passes through the vacuum motor.

PRO reviews submitted by happy buyers
- It helps me clean the house. I have two big dogs and a variety of surfaces to clean. My other vacuum couldn’t do the job so i bought a SEBO X4. And it has helped me clean like no other.
- The SEBO does an amazing job near the walls. I though I had to get the wand out, but there is no need. It has an amazing suction power!
- I like that the power cord is super long. I don’t have to stop vacuuming to plug the machine into another socket.
- After 2 years of owning the vacuum, it still works great even if it was bombarded by the fur of our 3 big dogs that bring inside a lot of dust and things.
- I am quite picky with my vacuums, because of my allergies. SEBO has done a really good job with the bags and the sealing of the machine. My home is safe and healthy since I’ve been using it.
- The manager from the hospital I work bought 2. After I’ve seen what they can do, I bough one for myself. Amazing machine!
- It reaches everywhere. Even if it doesn’t have the looks, this Sebo has the best build I’ve seen.
- Light, powerful, usable. And made in Germany. It’s a no-brainer.
Con reviews submitted by disappointed buyers
- Pricy, and I don’t like its design.
- No cord rewind, no variable suction control, no adjustable handle. Seems like there are a few things missing.
My personal recommendation and VGM (VacuumsGuide.com Mark)
It is very hard to say something bad about this vacuum, because it is great. It rates highly on Amazon. It comes with a very high price tag, but it will last for a very long time. I had only one issue with it, the vacuum can go pretty low on a wood floor and it can scratch it. If you have soft sensible wood floor, it may scratch it even if the vacuum has rubber wheels and bumpers. A big plus goes to the filtration system and to the sound it makes, which is very low. Overall, I do recommend this machine, it is one of the best vacuum cleaner out there, and one of my top 5 vacs over $500. Sebo Automatic X line gets a 96 VGM:
