Summary: This is the first Miele I've owned. Before buying I did a lot of research and read through a lot of the reviews on here, so I was concerned that the carpet head might be obnoxiously noisy or just not work.
Summary: I have had one of this brand of vacuums for years and when it was time to replace McHardys had the best price for the model I needed. The service was excellent, vacuum has great suction and awesome accessories. There was a hand written thank you in the package, very personalized service.
Summary: I like canisters and when I vacuum my house I like deep, very detailed cleaning, therefore I want all the service tools and all controls at fingertip. The Miele Marin has the service tools on board but the on/off and suction controls are on the canister.
Pros: Exhaust At The Top, Great Parquet Floor Tool, Great suction, Hygienic Bag Removal, One Touch Cord Rewind, Quiet, Service Tools On Board
Cons: Bulky handle, Clumsy, Expensive, Heavy, Hose Elbow Doesn't Rotate, On-off Not At Fingertip, Pricey Dust Bag, Short cord, Suction Not Fingertip, Wand is heavy
thinking it would be far superior. It is by far inferior

Summary: I can't quite figure out how other reviewers / purchasers of this product are so "impressed". For nearly $1000 bucks, I'd expect this thing to at least...perform? I have a white Siberian Husky. I could literally fill a pillow with his shed fur on a daily vacuuming basis.
Most expensive and best quality vacuum I've ever owned

Summary: Most expensive and best quality vacuum I've ever owned. Have owned 2 Dyson machines (last one was junk) and Miele is a far better design. I look forward to using it every time! One of the best purchases I've ever made.
Summary: This is an expensive vacuum but worth every penny. We are replacing our former Miele Canister which we have had for at least ten years. This one is a dream--so much quieter, light and easy to pull along, and with excellent suction.
Summary: Love Love Love this sweeper. Had a refurbished Aerus 9000 that quit working on me after a year and a half. Decided I wasn't going that route again. Did a lot of research to find what I needed. This fits the bill exactly. The suction power is amazing! Worth every penny! Thanks Miele!
Summary: Have 3 year old previous model. It was 1000 dollars then. Excellent vacuum with no dust or smell. Bags are expensive but filtrete makes bags that works just as well. I rarely use the adjustable suction so you can save yourself money with a cheaper model with less suction options.
Summary: Where has this vacuum cleaner been all my life? Never seems to lose suction, even when full. The exhaust smells clean, so the filters work. My floors are all wood, tile, and low carpet, and I do not miss the power head. Beats the pants off every other machine I have ever owned.
