I've spent the last couple of days researching a new Vacuum.
I came here over a year ago searching for suggestions and most folks went for the Dyson.
We decided on the Hoover Canister and it sucks (good suck) greats and performs all the tasks that it is supposed to do, but we're tired of dragging it behind us with it's stiff hose, which could be a bit longer.

I have researched the Dyson Bagless uprights and find we don't need such an expensive, Star Trek looking vac. Not to mention it is completely plastic, as are most vacs today.

After an exhaustive search I decided on the Miele S7210 upright bag type. The same price everywhere is $429 and mostly freight included and no tax. I watched a bunch of video demos from consumers, plus the factory demos in Germany.

Anyone here have a Miele bag type upright and what do you think?

I'm not a full timer, so I take This, along with a sponge mop. Neither one takes up much storage space or makes noise. Then a more thorough cleaning when I get home. And the Bissel is a LOT cheaper than a vacuum.

Get the Dyson canister. All the deep cleaning power you need, light enough to carry in one hand and vacuum with the other. Heavy duty construction and still easy to empty. Love it.

I had the Miele cannister type vac for a couple of years, I hated vacuuming with it because of dragging the cannister behind me. I got the upright dyson and have to say, all those that told me to get one were right. My Miele broke, (the power cord retractor, if you pulled it out it would stop running) and all my friends with the dyson vac were still running great. Mine had little throw away bags, weren't easy to find.

We have the Meile canister type for the sticks and bricks house. Good suction, variable power level, quiet, actually very quiet. Good for those with allergies. We order the HEPA filters and bags from Amazon.
Had an issue with the cord retractor. Just removed it and replaced it with a 25' cord.

I know you are asking for opinions on the Meile, but I wouldn't rule out Dyson. I don't have and have never used a Meile (don't know anyone that has one either), but I can't imagine that it could do better than our Dyson. We've had ours for almost 10 years and it works just as well as it did the day we brought it home. You can certainly get a Dyson for $429 or less depending on the model and where you purchase. They also get put on sale from time to time as well.

When we were looking at the Dyson, we borrowed one from a friend of ours to try it out. I vacuumed the carpet twice with our existing vacuum with a new bag each time. The second bag had very little dirt in it. Then I used the friend's Dyson. I couldn't believe how much more it picked up. You wouldn't have thought we had vacuumed at all. That sold us. Yes, it is made of plastic, but we haven't had a single part break and there are none on it I think look fragile.

For what it is worth...whatever you get, I recommend getting one with a bag...

For us, the "bagless" models sound convenient but are a hassle and are messy to empty.

My wife did a TON of research into vacuum cleaners several months ago, and bought the Meile upright. It's been a great product for us and I'd do it again.

Wow I went in the opposite direction, we had an uprite Oreck and loved it....But after moving from our rv back into a house with 16 sq feet of wood floors, I wanted a canister vac.. I too researched the different models and decided on a Miele. A little pricy but it's great for bare floors, furniture, carpets and getting under and around furniture.. Something my uprite could not do..

Today I started looking at the Oreck Baged upright.
It seems to be just a plain old vac without bells and whistles.
We like the bag so no dust gets around like when you dump the clear container.

I like the fact that Oreck's are used in hotels and they could afford the very best if need be. We considered also getting a little hand held for upholstery and crevices.The search continues.
