Summary: Our vacuuming needs are straightforward; mostly hardwood floors, no kids, no pets. I debated between the Miele Capri and the Olympus - I believe the only difference between the models is that the Capri includes a parquet brush in addition to the standard vacuum head. I use the parquet brush quite a bit, and appreciate having a lighter-weight option to push around. Otherwise, the vacuum is well designed, plenty powerful and not too loud.
Pros: Easy to Use, Efficient, Lightweight, Powerful/Good Suction
Summary: I finally caved in and purchased this vacuum after 2 other vacuum models failed to do the job. I can finally clean my rugs without the suction being too strong or wimpy and also clean the hardwood floor. The complaints I do have about this vacuum are: the lack of a handle/gripper makes my hand sore after a few minutes; why it doesn't come with a HEPA filter - that was a total bummer to find out b/c now I have to shell out an additional $50 (then at least add the handle...
Summary: Overall a good product. Happy with the cleaning and quietness, Stows away well. My concerns would extend to the balance of its use. The balance of the machine will recognize that the body will pitch and roll during use. Would also appreciate a spare bag included and the option to get a HEPA filter standard or at a bargain price on the piggy back purchase. Overall. I would give it a 7. Could and would be 9-10ish with some adjustments.
Summary: Worth the money I paid for. After using this vacuum for numbers of days it does cleaning well. Powerful motor with good dirt/dust suction. Compatible with the HEPE filter. As a starter high end vacuum I would recommend this product to my best friend.
Summary: LOVE this vacuum. we have hard floors and light carpet. We bought this after giving away an extremely expensive useless heavy vacuum and the difference is amazing. It is light, quiet and maneuverable. The attachments let me clean the couches, nooks and crannies and of course open floors. The suction is great too! I'm a new fan of Miele and I think we'll stick with them should we need another vacuum in the future!
Summary: Love it! Bought it for our 2 story home in Canada because of the light-weight & having been using it in our 1 story home in the US. Now thinking of buying another one because I love it so much!!! It's great!
