Summary: This is a lower end Miele (we have a more expensive one as well) and feels like it. Lots of light weight plastic that makes it feel cheap, not what you usually equate with a Miele. This model does not have the controls on the handle and that's a good thing - the wires are prone to short out in our older, more expensive Miele as the wires twist when you twist the handle and the repair/replacement is about $250, a hard slap after paying about $1000 for the older one.
Summary: This is a very quiet, lightweight, canister vacuum that does a reasonable job given its construction and ergonomics. The overall "feel" is that of less than the best quality construction. The relative inflexibility of the hose makes use of the attachment difficult in tighter locations or where manipulating the accessories is important.
Summary: I already have a Miele dishwasher and love it. So I went one stop further. I reviewed all the vacuums in varioud price ranges and decided on something I actually could afford. I didn't seem to need anymore bells and whistles than provided herein. However, the escape for the heat is at the top and throws quite a bit. I'm not sure what else is coming out from the vac along with the hot air. It takes a little getting used to going from an upright to this canister.
Summary: (Plus) - Light, small, well made. - Good motor, reliable suction (not as strong as others say, but above average for its size). - Well made bag-change system. (Minus) - The "motorized" attachment for carpets is inferior to most others in the market, and "manually-pushed". - The "angle of attack" seems to be designed for a person about 5'5". If you' re taller, you'll be bending slightly for the entire attachment to touch the floor. No, it's not flexible.
Summary: This vacuum is small and easy to manuever but as in other reviews I found that I often flip it upside down because it is so light. I managed to kink the plastic hose as there is no reinforcement in it and the power head gets full of dog hair so fast that I have to cut it off after every time I vacuum. Do Not recommend for pet owners & I think its overpriced.
Summary: Efficient, lightweight and silent. Perfect for hardfloor. But the Turbohead gets easily clogged with longer hairs. What I find annoying is that especially in combination with the Turbohead the "bag full" warning shows up early.
Summary: I bought this product because of the name and reputation. Also, a good friend had another model and recommended it. (I should have bought that model, I guess.) I assumed that if his model was great, then other models by this manufacturer would be, too. Big mistake. My model is no better than the Hoovers and Panasonics I've had, and just marginally better than the Oreck. And yet, it costs more money than the others in its particular class.
Summary: Great vacuum and very impressed with how quiet it is. Unfortunately, after vacuuming, my carpet is still loaded with cat fur. In addition, after about a year of usage, the telescoping arm broke. So great vacuum, probably not worth the money. I'm going to buy a Dyson D39 and see how that goes.
Summary: This is my second Miele and I have had it for a little over a year. I was surprised at how much the quality has gone down. Loved my first one and decided to just replace it with another, so I did not bother looking at other brands. Right off I could see the shortcuts. The body is smaller so the bag fills up quicker. It's on 3 wheels so that it keeps tipping over (very annoying).
