The Miele S2 Series Incorporating the quality and performance for which Miele vacuum cleaners are renowned, the S2 Series delivers exceptional cleaning power perfectly packaged in an agile, lightweight body. These versatile canisters gently care for all flooring in your home, from smooth, solid surfaces like tiles and hardwoods to plush rugs and deep-pile carpeting. With six distinct power settings — all clearly displayed on a front-mounted rotary dial — it’s easy to vary your vacuum cleaner’s suction power according to the carpet pile, flooring and fabrics you’re cleaning.
S2121 Olympus Miele’s S2 Olympus vacuum cleaner features a Classic FiberTeQ floor tool ideal for cleaning low-pile carpeting, rugs and smooth flooring. The Classic FiberTeQ allows the user to easily transition from carpet to smooth flooring with a flip of the toggle switch.

Other conveniences include three accessories — a dusting brush, upholstery tool and crevice nozzle — held in place by a VarioClip.

It is a great little vacuum for bare floors - all the claims are true: whisper quiet, great suction, very lightweight and maneuverable, and it seems to be very well made. I particularly liked the 6 different suction settings. The problem was with my area rugs. I have several flat-weave wool rugs. I found I couldn't really push the brush head back and forward on them - only one way, which is kind of awkward. But the worst problem was the dog hair. It just kind of smeared it around. If I worked at it awhile, I could pick it up, but for a $300 vacuum, this was intolerable, and I am sending it back :(
If anybody has another vacuum to recommend, I'd appreciate your advice. I want a small, light-weight, canister with variable suction settings that works well on rugs as well as bare floors. And I don't want to have to change vacuum brushes to go from floor to rug - push button adjustment only. I live in a medium size house, but my floors are very cluttered and I have found that uprights are way too bulky for my needs. Thanks in advance.
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. Now your old vacuum is that Kawasaki Ninja that passed you on the highway at 230 mph, and this awesome Miele is that moped, humming along at 35 miles per hour. They both do the same thing and will transport you from A-B, but the Moped won't make you look like a jerk doing so. I guess what I'm getting at here is that it's pretty quiet.
Ok lets move on to LOOKS! This thing just looks cool. It looks like something a Storm Trooper would use on the Death Star if the auto-vac's (that I'm assuming the Empire had) all broke down at once.
PERFORMACE: Like I said before, if you've got hardwood floors and a few area rugs, then this thing its totally gonna rock your world. The main head attachment moves up and down and rotates thus allowing you to practically lay this thing flat to get all the way under the couch (that's where our cat and dog hair seems to take refuge).
AIR QUALITY: Unlike most vacuums out there, this thing leaves the world a better place than when it found it. Not only does it suck up anything that'll fit into it's hose, but it's got some sort of super-filter that, I'm fairly certain, cleans the air as you suck stuff up. I've yet to poke around inside the cannister for fear of learning it's secrets, but I can honestly say that not only are your floors and furniture going to be cleaner but you're house-air will smell more pure.
This thing looks cool.
This thing works very well.
This thing looks like a Storm Trooper
This thing will totally suck up everything you put in front of it.
If you've read this whole review, then you're probably gonna get this thing. And you should.
EDIT: I've since gotten divorced... but put up a fight and kept my Miele... it was well worth it...
My video is good example but not exactly what you can hear.
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.
