Summary: Great vacuum! Understand...the floor piece has a foot switch that must be depressed to switch between low-pile carpet and hardwood floors. The auto-sensing motor lowers the suction to allow you to move on different surfaces. Took me a minute to get used to it. The suction is SO powerful, that heavy rugs pull up...until the suction goes down. Even without a beater or brush, this vacuum cleaned our wool rugs PERFECTLY!
Summary: So far, so good. Vacuum is very quiet, yet has strong suction. Attachments are adequate for the tasks they are designed to perform, and the filterbags are very good and easy to install. We really like the cord retractor, much better than the mechanical process used on another brand that we have used for years.
Summary: The Alize is perfect for hardwoods, tile, vinyl and low pile carpets. It is lightweight and easily maneuverable, and has great power. The auto feature is invaluable (only available on this model and the higher-end Marin). I find the AirTeq tool to be a good compromise between the parquet tool and an electric brush (it works well for the types of floors listed in my first sentence). Prior to the Alize, I owned a now-retired Miele model similar to the Titan.
Summary: I was positively terrified when I ordered the Marin. I had done a lot of research about vacuums and had heard a glowing testimonial from a relative, but pushing the button to spend so much money on a vacuum cleaner about gave me a heart attack. However, I received the vacuum yesterday and just spent over 3 hours cleaning my home with it, and am relieved to find that it is a) awesome and b) the deep level of clean that my home is left in is cleaner than I thought...
Summary: This Miele vacuum cleaner is utterly unbelievable. Quiet. Powerful. Simply the very best Hepa vacuum cleaner I have ever owned. I had a Miele vacuum before, but this Miele Alize S8590 model is leaps and bounds above the lowerline. Well worth the extra expense!
Pros: effective, quiet, reliable, easy to use, met my expectations, POWERFUL
Summary: I have a central vac but find it increasingly cumbersome. This light, highly effective vacuum is perfect. Far more suction than the central vac and with articulating wheels is a breeze to move around. Love it!
Summary: This is an excellent vac. Nice,easy to use and really sucks! It has an automatic suction regulator that cuts suction if the head locks down on the floor. It does a fine job on our short nap rugs and the dog's beds.One problem we did have was the bag was not seated on the inlet and the vac and hepa filter was filled with crud. I cleaned it out and contacted Amazon about a new hepa filter, they replaced the vac with a new one,like the next day! Awesome service.
