Finlux Appliances

Finlux brand logo

Some of us, that are of a certain age, might recall the Finlux brand and associate it with televisions and other so called browngoods but, not so much with appliances.

Finlux would appear to be a more well know name in other European countries, not so much in the UK.

The brand was acquired by Vestel in 2006.

Primarily we expect that this was to shift televisions and other consumer electronics that Vetel makes but it would appear that the brand has drifted into selling Vestel produced appliances as well now. Just how much is being pushed through under the Vestel banner we really don't know but, we have seen parts for washing machines, cookers and more pop up under the Finlux brand.

  Finlux Retail Position

We aren't really all that sure of what the pitch is with Finlux or what Vestel wants to do with the brand in the terms of appliances.

Possibly, like Blomberg for Beko, it will be used as an "independent exclusive" brand or something like that as most people probably won't recognise the Vestel brand and we're sure more people would vaguely recall the Finlux branding and perhaps might possibly equate it with its Finnish roots.

It's not Nordic however, it's Turkish stuff.

Due to a lack of familiarity with Finlux appliances we do not have enough information to offer any meaningful opinion on the brand other than what we have already stated about Vestel made products in general.

It reasonable to assume however that it is highly likely that Finlux are once again budget machines dressed up with a more recognised and maybe even a trusted brand name. There seems little to justify recommending Finlux over other machines that are, considerably cheaper but have the same internals that are also produced by Vestel.

  Finlux Service

UK service for Finlux appliances is unclear although we expect that it will just be the same as most other Vestel brands and we believe that service is  being handled by Minerva Services at the time of writing.

  Finlux Spare Parts

Spare part supply was said to be generally okay (ish) but we have not enough experience of the brand to offer much more opinion at the time of writing and on looking we failed to find any support.

However the usual caveats about Vestel spare parts apply, it can be difficult, limited and expensive.

  Finlux Rating & Review

You can find out how we determine these rating in this article explaining how we put this together in as easy way possible for people to understand quickly.

Finlux market share
Miniscule UK market share
Very small for appliances but then they are fairly new to the market
Brand kudos
Very well known brand
Finlux is a well known brand in some areas but not so much for domestic appliances
Finlux appliance pricing
Very cheap but, nasty by all accounts
Cheap enough but you can get better for similar money from more recognised appliance brands
Quality
Not good quality levels
For the prices do you really think these will be great? And, paying more for a Finlux badge as opposed to one of the many other Vestel build machines doesn't make it any better
Repair rating
Same as Vestel.
We've not seen much feedback as yet but, given they're just rebadged Vestel machines expect more of the same
Repairer support
Authorised agents might fix them but, it's quite likely nobody else will
Authorised agents might fix them but, it's quite probable nobody else will
DIY repair rating

Overall Rating

Our advice, avoid this one!
Finlux appears to be little more than yet another glorified Vestel product. You can get the same cabinets and mechanics elsewhere for less.
