Ok, so... I'm a guy. I'm a 29 year old married guy. I'm a 29 year old married guy who thought that $300 for a vacuum was, well, a really dumb idea. I was under the impression that all vacuums were more/less create equal. You know, you plug 'em in, they pick up crumbs, pick up cat/dog hair and that's about it, and if you're lucky, you get a chance to scare one of the cats with it. They're all just utilitarian tools that suck up stuff and are all the same... Well, they aren't... and I'm shocked to be saying this, very shocked indeed...

So, here's my thesis: If you have hardwood floors and a few rugs and a desire to suck up everything, then get this bad boy. It'll change your life, my friend. No, scratch that... it'll blow your mind...

Ok, here's the deal:

First off, it's light. LIKE, REALLY LIGHT. And on top of that, it's on casters that aren't fixed in place, thus allowing the cannister to move in any direction, unlike the old vacuums of yore that could move pretty much just forward and back maybe had a swivelling wheel on the front.

Secondly (and in no apparent order), this thing's got (for lack of a better phrase) a variable rate sucky thingy... you can set this thing to suck just a little, or suck a whole helluva lot. I really don't know why you'd use this, but it has pictures of curtains and other delicate stuff, so I'm guessing it's kinda like that gentle-wash cycle on the washing mashine that I've never used. Nevertheless, as a guy that loves stuff, I like knowing that I can customize my suction.

Next Up! It's quiet. Dunno what else to say... so I'll paint a picture for you: Take one of those high-peformance motorcycles: they're loud and annoying. Now take a moped which is quiet yet equally annoying.

I underwent a long and arduous search for the best vacuum, and I finally found it. I read a ton of reviews and looked at lots of models, and am very happy with my choice. However, we've only had it for a few weeks, so perhaps I'll find fault later on, but for now, my husband and I are both thrilled with this vac. It's light, easy to maneuver and great on our hardwood floors and rugs. Even though there is no brush roller, it still works well on all our rugs, which are mostly orientals and some with a fairly thick pile. One caveat: Make sure you use the switch on the vac head to go from hardwood to carpet, or else it will make that terrible scraping sound another reviewer wrote about. Once you hit the switch it works fine, so I guess that person just didn't notice the switch. It's nice and quiet and also works well on cat hair. The only criticism I have is that the vent blower on top of the vac can blow dust a bit but that's only when you are holding it at odd angles, like on the stairs. Once I was aware of that, I was able to turn it to avoid the issue. The cord was long enough for me; didn't have that issue as others have. I love that it has a holder to keep the wand upright when you need to stop and move something-- you don't have to find something to lean it on. Overall, I'm VERY pleased!!!
NOTE: Amazon lists a suggestion to buy vac bags at the same time, but it listed the wrong kind of bag. This machine takes G/N bags and not the other kind as was listed.

Miele is a family-owned German manufacturer of home appliances. The company's philosophy of continuous improvement ("Immer Besser") has made them a favorite throughout the world. Their products don't have bargain prices, but provide value in high quality design and manufacturing that results in superior performance and durability. Miele was founded in 1899 and began producing vacuum cleaners in 1927; their vacuums have become favorites of professionals worldwide, including many top-end hotel staffs.

The Miele S2 line of canister vacuums is new for 2009, offering the quality and many of Miele's standard features at a lower price. There are three S2 models, all sharing the same 1200-watt base vacuum. The canister has six power settings and a standard air filter that catches 94% of particles down to 0.3 microns. The Olympus model is the lowest priced of the three, and features a floor/carpet combo head (SBD350-3), non-electric hose and a telescoping wand. The Delphi model substitutes a power head (SEB217-3), electric hose (SES116) and electric telescoping wand (SET220). The Titan model retains the power components of the Delphi and adds a parquet floor brush (SBB-3) and active HEPA filter.

Note that all three models can support the power hose and brush, but only the Delphi and Titan include it as part of the package. Similarly, all three models support the active HEPA filter, but only the Titan includes it in its package.

This is the fourth vacuum we have purchased recently. The first was a Sears Progressive cannister, which works well, but is quite heavy and loud. We still own it. The second was a Bissel Ergorapido, which we hoped would be suitable for our 1500 square foot pied a terre in Boston. We still own it, mostly because we paid very little for it, and plan to give it to one of our grown up children who live in very small apartments. It has very poor suction, and does not hold enough charge to clean our rather small weekend retreat. But it is very light, and easy to use, and would be useful as a sort of electric broom in a very small apartment with no carpets or rugs - or pets.

We purchased an Oreck to replace the Ergorapido. I would describe its performance as alarming - both from the perspective of noise and its effect on our floors and rugs. It was also indifferent as an appliance - with modest suction, and poor clearance under cabinetry. It was completely indifferent to dust and particles not directly in its path, and the path was never straight. We took advantage of the 30 day return policy and got our money back from Oreck.

The Miele S2120 is a dream in comparison to any of the above, and a would say in comparison to any vacuum clear I have ever encountered. It is light, easy to store, remarkably quieter than even the battery powered Ergorapido, simple in design and attractive. It is also a substantially better vacuum cleaner with tremendous suction, a light touch on rugs and floors and a low enough profile to fit beneath even the lowest cabinet and furniture overhangs. It also has a retractable cord, and as the "entry level" Miele, a single very practical head that seems to work on everything - even furniture. It also cost $55 less than the Oreck.

The Miele is the only product I would purchase again. It makes me happy.
