Good vacuum, annoying handling and cord too short.

Summary: I have no complaints about the the actual vacuum function, it works great. It picks everything up, carpet and hardwood flooring. The flex joint between the brush head and wand is good enough to get beneath the lowest furniture. The whole thing is sturdily constructed. All in all the vacuum is excellent. However, I have 2 complaints that really are big irritations for me. First, the power cord.
Summary: I have had a Kenmore for three years and it was and still is listed as a top vacuum by Consumer Reports. But I found that it lost suction and was extremely hard to push after a few months even though it has been serviced several times. So I was looking for something better and willing to pay more. Didn't want a Dyson and I have heard about Miele brand for a long time. I was surprised at how light the whole unit actually is.
Summary: I was skeptical about dropping a significant amount of money on a vacuum. The hose on the central vacuum system was destroying my walls and I wasn't all that crazy about the suction of the central vac system. After reading and receiving positive feedback from people I know, I decided the Miele was worth exploring. I wanted a canister vacuum as our home is entirely hardwood flooring with a few area rugs.
Summary: this thing is easy to use, light, powerful and we have a 4000 square foot house. We fill up the bag in just three or four uses, not even vacuuming every room. It is a big pain in the butt for this reason as those bags are expensive. But I cannot complain about the quality of the vacuum. Tiny bags if you've got a big house with more than four kids in it.
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: We have hardwood floors throughout our house with area rugs in the living room, sun room, dining room and 2 hall ways. The vacuum did GREAT on the hardwood but we had a difficult time vacuuming the area rugs. We do have a mastiff with short hair that sheds a moderate amount. The vacuum was quiet which was great and I love that you can adjust the suction settings. We ended up returning it since the rugs never looked as clean as they should.
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.
