I live in a small home with only one room being carpeted, but with a few rugs throughout the house. Bought this vacuum (Delphi) over the Olympus and Capri versions because its has the powered brush head which I feel is needed for any carpeting. The Titan model has features that I did not want, will go over that later.
After using this product to vacuum my entire home twice (I know, not a lot to go off) here is what I think about it.
- Not too heavy
- Great suction
- Extendable wand is of acceptable length (I'm 6' tall) I'm sure taller people will be pleased with its length as well.
- Quiet. My pets (1 Golden Retriever, 2 Cats) still don't like it but now they just keep a little distance instead of running as far away as possible as with my old vacuum.
- The electric head works great for any surface in my home including medium pile carpet and wood floors.
- Not sure of the total capacity of the bag, but it has yet to be full from a full vacuuming of my house twice.
- The automatic powered cord retract works well and pulls the cord ALL the way back.
- Power Head has an on/off switch (for the rotating brush only) on the handle to easily transition from carpet to wood floor.
- Power cable is short. I was surprised when I first pulled it all the way out. Still long enough to not be a real issue but surprising none the less.
- This really shouldn't be a con but I'm listing it so people know. I figured that since this was a canister it would be easier to move the lighter vacuum head back and forth as compared to a heavy upright. Not the case because of the strong suction that this vacuum has it really grabs hold of rugs/carpet. It does have wheels though so it doesn't just get stuck to the floor when you push, it will go forward.
- I have to bend down every time I want to change the power settings.
- Overall this seems to be a great vacuum even if it is a bit pricey. For $560 with tax+shipping I really try to view this as an investment that will last me 10 years as compared to other cheap vacuum brands that last 2 maybe 3 years. Time will tell if it was money well spent.
- If you have back problems this vacuum might not be right for you. I find my self bending down more than with uprights. As it is small just getting started I have to reach down to pick it up off the floor and go the the room I want to clean. The power chord is at floor level, to change an attachment they are stored on top of the unit which is still low, as stated before, to change power I have to reach down. It's just a lot of reaching down. Of course any vacuum will include reaching down for whatever reason, but if you are buying this for someone else it is something you may want to consider. While an upright would be heavier it won't require as much bending down, especially if the attachments are located higher up on the vacuum.
Here are the basic differences between the S2 Models (Olympus, Capri, Delphi, Titan): The most important difference is going to be the electric hose, as powered head attachments wont work without it. If the vacuum doesn't come with the electric hose then you will have to buy one if you want a powered head attachment (if you have carpet you will want a powered attachment). This hose running about $150 as of this review.
Olympus - the basic model. Comes with head attachment that's really only good for bare floors. NON Electric hose
Capri - Olympus + an additional head attachment that is OK with the lowest pile of carpets. NON Electric hose
Delphi - Electric head attachment that works great for carpets (and everything else IMO). ELECTRIC hose.
Titan - Delphi + Additional head attachment that is good for bare floors such as wood and tile + HEPA filter. ELECTRIC hose.
Thoughts on Titan:
The titan costs $100 more than the Delphi and comes with features I do not want. The additional head attachment (Parquet Floor Tool) is an older version that does not stay flat to the floor unless you hold the wand at a specific angle. If you want that extra head I believe purchasing the Delphi model and then buying the new version of the Parquet Floor Tool that will always stay flat to the floor is a smarter decision.
Additionally the Titan comes with a HEPA filter. This feature is of little importance to me as I do not have allergy's and will only increase the cost to own this vacuum as it will need replacing. Whenever you purchase new bags for this vacuum they come with a new Air Clean filter for free. This works great for me and will for any person that doesn't have any severe allergy's. The air is fresh. If you have severe allergy's and want the HEPA filter it is really going to be in your best interests the purchase one of the S8 models that Miele offers as they are built with a sealed system that prevents anything from leaking out of the unit as it operates.
This is an entry level Miele vacuum.
The power cord is short.
The attachments are small/short.
The vacuum is mostly plastic.
The suction hose is short(er).
The bags are expensive / fill up too fast.
Power control is not on the handle. (on the canister only)
Suction control is not on the handle. (on the canister only)
The vacuum tips over.
So why did I buy this vacuum? Because I knew the facts ahead of time and I knew which ones would and would not be a factor for my use.
I'm 6ft tall, reaching ceiling corners and higher things to vacuum are not an issue for me.
My house is about 1200 sq ft. I usually move the power cord 3-4 times depending on where I start.
I use the small attachments. It takes me a minute or two longer than if they were bigger. No big deal. I'm not in that much of a hurry.
I take care of my things so the vacuum being plastic does not bother or worry me.
I take smaller passes when vacuuming to accommodate for the shorter hose. Honestly I have never noticed it being too short for me. I guess I don't take long passes with the vacuum head.
If expensive bags makes or breaks this purchase, this isn't the vacuum for you. If you are going to buy a $500 vacuum you should be able to afford some replacement bags too. Since owning this vacuum I have only recently replaced the bag. We have 1 dog that sheds a lot and my wife has long hair that I find all over everything lol. Still it didn't fill up fast in my opinion.
I use my toes to turn the power on / off.
I actually bend over to control how much suction the vacuum is pulling.
I've used this since October (around 4 months) and it has never tipped on me. Then again I pay attention to what I'm doing when pulling the vacuum behind me.
The most important part of my vacuum purchase was, will it suck everything up. The answer is yes it will! I have lower pile carpet and at the highest setting it gets difficult to push the vacuum head around, that's how much suction there is. If you have carpet longer than about .25 to .5 inches you better look for a different vacuum. I love it and depending on it's life cycle and repair cost I see myself as becoming a long-term Miele customer.
