Summary: Hey I think a lot of reviews have pointed out more practical features of this... I'd just like to point out that it looks reaally cool, like first generation iPod cool. The way that it slowly revs up to speed is definitely a controlling factor.
Pros: Easy To Empty, Easy to Use, Efficient, Lightweight, Long Power Cord, Powerful/Good Suction
Summary: We live in a very natural environment which means lots of sand coming in our house on a daily basis. This vacuum is great because it is so lightweight and easy to maneuver around on our polished concrete floors. The powerful suction does a perfect job of eliminating the sand that is brought in.
Pros: Easy to Use, Efficient, Lightweight, Powerful/Good Suction
Summary: I've had my miele for only a couple of weeks and so far I see it as a great little vacuum. I decided on getting it mainly because my daughter raved about how much she liked hers. Some have commented that they don't like the wheels on the floor tool....I don't see that as a deal breaker.
Excerpt: We have a large dog in a two-story house. This vacuum is extremely light weight, very manageable and "can suck the chrome off a bumper" if you know what I mean. Their slogan is correct: "anything else would be a compromise."
Summary: Although this vacuum has plenty of suction (a positive), it has a few cons that make it dysfunctional as far as I'm concerned. They are: 1. The vacuum is wrongly designed for its weight. It is relatively light weight, but has the wrong proportions relative to its weight.
Summary: I bought a Miele de luxe S227 vacuum cleaner in 1985 and used it frequently. It did a fantastic job and it is still in excellent working condition. In short, thwere is no other vacuum cleaner in the world, that beats a Miele.
Pros: Easy to Use, Efficient, Lightweight, Long Power Cord, Powerful/Good Suction
Vastly Overpriced for a So-So Vacuum that Blows in Your Face!!

Summary: I researched cannister vacuum cleaners for several weeks before I bought this one (I hate uprights and would never buy one). Unfortunately, after weeks of research, it appears my dream vacuum doesn't exist -- there appears to be no vacuum cleaner on the market that has all the features I would like...
Summary: I love my first Miele vacuum! All of the extra tools fit right on the canister so they are in easy reach. It is extremely powerful and cleans my wooden floors and tile very well. The controls are foot activated, so no bending. I really like the foot activated power cord retrieval.
