Size: S2181 Titan Verified Purchase
I have owned my share of vacuums over the years. And like strollers, I kept trying to find the "one" that would be all I needed. I think I finally found it! About a month ago, I decided to put my Eureka Boss out to pasture and begin the search for a new vacuum. My FIL had a new Dyson vacuum that he seemed to like, so I started my research there. Boy, am I glad other reviewers recommended in their reviews to check out the Miele vacuums instead!

I live in a four story Colonial (basement is "unfinished", but we have rugs down where the washing machine is) and our walk-up attic was just refinished with wall-to-wall carpeting. On the other two "main" floors, it's mostly hardwood/tile and area rugs. So, we have many different floor surfaces requiring different maintenance needs! The more I researched Miele, the more I knew a canister vacuum was for me. I couldn't fathom trying to carry a heavy upright up and down all the different levels in my house. I found a local appliance store that sold Mieles and went to look at them myself. We bought one soon after through Amazon.

Here's what I like most about the Miele:
1. The retractable cord. It's a pet-peeve of mine that more appliances don't have this feature! And although the cord isn't super long, it's enough to do a room (at least in my house) and then unplug it to do another room.
2. The quietness. I just had a second baby and was worried about how I was going to keep the house clean with coordinating TWO nap and sleep schedules. The Titan (and I'm sure most other Mieles) resolve this issue by making it very quiet to use. I even used it in the room with my sleeping newborn and it didn't wake him!
3. The lightness. I can easily move this vacuum up and down the stairs with one hand.

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 four 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 S2 line, and features a floor/carpet combo head (SBD350-3), non-electric hose and a telescoping wand. The Capri model substitutes the air-powered Turbobrush (STB205-3) for the floor/carpet combo head, and adds the Parquet Floor Brush (SBB-3). The Delphi model substitutes a power head (SEB217-3), electric hose (SES116) and electric telescoping wand (SET220) for the non-powered components of the Olympus. The

Size: S2181 Titan
I bought this vacuum when our dog started to shed for the first time. The old one just didn't get the hair off the rugs. We were not disappointed by the Miele Titan suction power - it's ability to get most hair off of rugs and upholstery is amazing.
But there are some things about this model that are truly annoying. You should consider them before you buy:

1. The cord is about 1/2 the lenght of our old Kenmore canister vaccum. We constantly have to move it to another outlet. The operating radius is very limited. This is what my wife complains the most about.
2. The dust bag compartment is tiny. The bags could hold a lot more dirt, but because the compartment is so tiny, they fill up quickly. 4 bags cost about $20, which turned out to be a real money sink. I estimate that we will spend another $600 over the first 5 years on dust bags. This is what I complain the most about.
3. There is no onboard tool compartment. I'd rather have a little larger canister and not have the tools piggy-backed onto a flimsy clip that is attached to the top. There is no way to attach the floor attachment when it is not in use. We always have to go look for it when switching between the power brush and the floor attachment.
4. The locking mechanism on the telescoping wand broke after 6 months, and as far as I can tell I will have to order the whole thing - a $115 part.
5. The canister rests on 3 wheels like most other models, but the front wheel of this one is relatively close to the center of gravity, which makes it unstable. It tends to easily tip to either side.
6. Changing the dirt bag requires that the cord for the power wand be disconnected, which is plugged in under the handle. This is a very odd solution.
7. The purpose of the soft-start feature is unclear to me.
