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...
Excerpt: Evacuum did a wonderful job of getting the order to me promptly. It is very strong at cleaning. I would like to see the head a little smaller so it can go under furniture better and also have a place on the vacuum for the carpet/floor attachments. Otherwise, am very pleased.
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.
Summary: the vacuum felt like a toy... the brush for the carpet was significantly smaller than the one on my "old" vacuum; Yes it is light-weight... but just didn't feel like it would last for an extended period of time. The hose felt "flimsy" compared to my "old" vacuum... I just didn't like it.
Summary: I recently purchased this canister vacuum after years of cleaning with an Oreck Upright vacuum. This vacuum is light and so easy to use. The suction is the best!! So strong!! I use on mostly hardwood floors and low pile area carpets.
