After our old Electrolux bit the dust, we knew we wanted another tank vacuum. Options were limited, but the salesman told us we'd be very happy with this vacuum. And we are. The attachments are easy to change and the bag capacity is good (though the bags themselves are a little expensive). It's quite a workhorse and I highly recommend it. Maneuverability This vacuum is very easily to maneuver. The size is great to slide between objects. Ease of Maintenance Parts come apart easy for maintenance. Suction Performance The suction is very strong. It is also adjustable for carpet, tile, drapes, etc. Versatility This vacuum has several attachments that make it a very versatile for use all around the house. Design Sleek, functional, simple design. No complaints! Durability The Miele is a very durable vacuum. Ours has been banged around quite a bit -- up stairs, down stairs, around corners, under tables. It's been scratched, kicked, shoved, and is still perfectly functional.
