I got this vacuum as a gift. I had heard that Miele'e were top of the line, and even better than dysons. I had used a dyson prior to this, and some other cheap vacuums. I have to say I am not thoroughly impressed by its suction or anything, other than its small and compact. I really wanted to love this vacuum. Pros: It compacts itself easily and nicely, and the sound when you start it kind of revs up to maximum volume, so it starts off soft. Cons: not THAT great considering how much they cost, although, I think it will last me a long time (I hope?) and it has bags. I would rather not have to worry about running out of bags and going out to buy more bags when I need to vacuum.
