Summary: This is by far the best vacuum I have ever owned. It is light weight with a good long cord. It is so incredibly quiet that I don't worry about disturbing my neighbors downstairs anymore AND I don't feel like I should wear ear plugs to use it. It is worth the $$$. Only downside: may not be the most powerful one that Miele makes so, if that is important, you may want to pay more for a larger one.
Pros: Convenient Attachments, Easy To Empty, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Long Power Cord
Summary: The Carina is lightweight and has great suction. I don't have carpet, but the upholstery tool does a good job of getting cat & dog hair off my upholstered furniture. It's easy to move around and doesn't take up a lot of space. At first having the exhaust on top bothered me (it blows into my face at times) but I'm used to it now. I'm sure it's clean air, being all HEPA filtered and everything.
Summary: The Carina is excellent, exceeding our expectations. Light, quiet, with plenty of adjustable sucking power. Am pleased we decided to spend the extra money for this quality. Only wish a full floor brush was included at less than the cost of buying it separately.
Summary: I agree with all of the reviewers who really like this machine. It's small, light, has great suction and is versatile on both hard wood floors and rugs. The attachments, however, do seem a little chintzy, maybe to keep the light weight. I guess we shall see in a couple of years how long they last. I used to own a Samsung Quiet Storm, which was much heavier, noisier and was always in need of parts. I think this unit will be a lot better.
Summary: I bought this because of all the excellent reviews and was very disappointed. I am sending it back. I had an electrolux canister vac that had a power head and assumed this was the same type of thing. It's not. It does not have a power head and it's very difficult to push and pull across carpet. Plus it's a small head which requires more work to cover the same area.
Summary: Great vacuum--very light which makes it easy to get a job done as a 5'3" woman who hates to vacuum. I've had better vacuums in Germany that were similar, but given that the selection of truly light canister vacuums in the US is sparse, this one does just fine. There are 6 different settings depending on the level of suction, and the attachments worked well for upholstery and crevices.
Summary: Very compact and easy to move around. It's a little heavy to carry up the stairs though. The thing I really like is you can select different degrees of suction for different areas. You don't want too much power for little rugs for example.
Pros: Easy to Use, Efficient, Powerful/Good Suction
Summary: Ciao! Ich weiß noch, bevor ich meine eigene Wohnung vor nunmehr 4,5 Jahren bezogen habe, da war ich mir sicher, dass sich die gesamte Hausarbeit im Nu würde erledigen lassen, quasi von allein. Meine Mutter sagte schon: „Warte mal ab, ehe du dich’s versiehst, lässt du alles schleifen und eines Morgens wirst du in einer siffigen Staub Höhle wach. Machen wir’s kurz: Gestern morgen war mal wieder so ein Morgen.
Pros: Saugkraft, Design, handling, Beutel Wechsel ist einfach, Top Verarbeitung
Summary: Hallo alle zusammen !! Vor meien Urlaub hat mein guter Staubsauger den Geist aufgegeben. Er hat angefangen leicht zu qualmen und es roch ziemlich verbrannt. Somit war ich gezwungen mir eine neuen Staubsauger zu kaufen. Damit ich auch an meinem neuen Staubsauger Spaß haben werde, bin ich gleich los und habe mich beraten lassen. Nach einigen Beratungsgesprächen habe ich mich für den Miele S 4210 Entschieden. Leistungseinstellung....
