Quality. Quality. Quality: Miele's Maxim There is no better way to guarantee the quality and performance of a product, inside and out, than to test it, test it and test it again. There is simply no room for mistakes when it comes to a Miele vacuum cleaner. Their vertical integration production philosophy means that Miele controls virtually all processes, from injection molding the vacuum shell to the creation of the electronics and the Vortex Motor System through final assembly. Endurance testing in custom-built laboratories forms an intrinsic part of quality assurance for all Miele vacuum cleaners. Before any production process begins, all components are put through rigorous tests and subjected to enormous strain... stress that exceeds typical residential household use. The vacuums are tested to last a minimum of 1,000 operating hours or an average of 20 years. Only when all components, electronics and floor tools have successfully passed each critical exam will the Miele brand name be bestowed on them. Custom Convenience Second only to the demand for quality is the need for comfort, convenience and ease of use. Ergonomic construction and stylish design ensures responsive, effortless movement and lasting durability. Three smooth-running 360* castor wheels mounted on steel axles ensure the maximum maneuverability of your S2 vacuum cleaner. They are cleverly designed with a travel ramp to help you maneuver your vacuum easily over thresholds and around obstacles. While an operating radius of nearly 30 feet allows you to clean large areas without the hassle of having to change power outlets. Powerful Performer The primary cleaning force behind any vacuum cleaner is its suction motor. As with all Miele floor care products, the S2 is equipped with a strong 1,200 watt Miele-made Vortex Motor System. Their system guarantees optimal airflow and is designed to Miele's 20-year life design protocol. And, despite its power, the Vortex Motor System is noticeably (or unnoticeably) quiet! Silence Setting All Miele vacuums are known for their quiet operation, but a new sound insulation layer in the S2 makes this model particularly quiet. The "silence setting" offers the lowest noise output along with the ideal power level for the given surface, enabling a most pleasant and effective cleaning experience. Durable Design Constructed from durable, highimpact ABS plastic, the very same material used in professional football helmets, the casing on all Miele vacuum cleaners has a 7-year warranty. Its robust, yet lightweight design, delivers responsive movement and superior cleaning. And at the end of your vacuum's 20-year plus life, recycling is effortless - due to clear labeling on the ABS casing. Adaptive Accessories Safely secured to your S2 by a convenient VarioClip - helpful accessories are always at hand for detail cleaning. Accessories include a crevice nozzle for hard-to-reach spaces, an upholstery tool for sofas and curtains and a dusting brush for baseboards and ledges. Making Life Better, One Breath at a Time You take every measure to provide superiorcare for your home and most importantly for your family - selecting pesticide-free produce, locating eco-friendly cleaners and using toxic-free detergents. But the very task you perform to clean your home, vacuuming, may not only be ineffective, but a cause of indoor air pollution. Not all vacuum cleaners, however, are created equal. For over 80 years, Miele's research, development and quality control laboratories have tested methods to ensure that our vacuum cleaners effectively capture and retain dust, dirt and other indoor air pollutants. After collecting volumes of data, engineers and designers continue to reach the firm conclusion that Miele's system is the most effective and hygienic method of removing particulate matter from the home. Their exclusive CleanAir System uses the very best raw materials and together with the revolutionary, electrostatically-charged HyClean filtering dustbag and a selection of high-quality filter cartridges, including a certified HEPA filter (standard on the S 2180 Titan), Miele S2 vacuums provide the essential formula necessary to safeguard your indoor air quality. Tailored Solutions Offering a wide variety of tools and accessories, Miele provides a powerful solution for any unique cleaning challenge. No matter if it's delicate area rugs, newly installed hardwood floors, carpeting or a mixed combination, Miele pairs the right tool with the right suction power to deliver the ultimate in clean.

Customer Reviews for Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner S2120Olympus
Review 1 for Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner S2120Olympus
"Finally, a product that works better than advertised. This little unit has great power and is amazingly quiet. Maximum power generates a little noise but it is unnecessary to run it at full capacity.
I like the variable speed motor, It can run at 1/4 power for hard surfaces and still clean a floor.
I recommend this unit for anyone who has hard surfaces to vacuum. We purchased the xl twister floor brush and use it for 2400 feet of travertine. It is a perfect combination."

Review 2 for Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner S2120Olympus
Location:Los Angeles, CA
Owned Product:0-6 months
Frequency of Use:Heavy
Would Recommend: Yes
Best Vacuum EVER
Pros: light powerful easy to maneuver
"The box reads ANYTHING ELSE IS A COMPROMISE and it couldn't be more true. Everything about the design and quality of Miele vacuums is perfect. I use mine several times a week (on cement floors) and it always makes me happy. I am not sure how this specific model would perform on thick carpet. I've used the more expensive Miele models in spaces with carpet and they did a great job. I've also had a lot of experience with the Dyson, which I find to be the most cumbersome, ugly, overrated, underperforming, and disgusting (there is no way to empty a bagless cleaner without stirring up all the old dirt) machine out there. Go Miele!!"

Review 3 for Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner S2120Olympus
Pros: great suction, small & light-weight, very mobile, looks good
Cons: no rotating brush attachment on this model
"This vacuum is really good.
At this price I wasn't sure if it would do but I was really surprised at how well it works. Great suction. Light and easy to move from room to room. Small enough to store easily.
I have hardwood and low pile area rugs in my apartment so can only speak to the performance under those conditions... which is great! Not sure about the quality on thicker pile rugs and/or carpeting."

Review 4 for Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner S2120Olympus
Would Recommend: Yes
Best Vacuum for $
Pros: same power and quality engine as costlier miele's
Cons: cheaper plastic attachments, not as good for wall-to-wall carpeting
"In my search for a vacuum I contemplated going the cheap rout. But that seemed like I might be buying a new vacuum every year or so. At $100 per, that would soon add up and cause frustration and lots of second guessing. As I researched the higher end models, Hoover, Dyson, etc. all had lots of good reviews but also many bitter complaints. Miele was the only product that had nothing but happy customers. The S2120 seems like a the perfect mix of quality and economy. It's built on the same platform as the much more expensive Miele's, but has cheaper attachments. So if you don't have wall-to-wall shag carpeting, this machine gives you the same powerful engine with decent quality attachments. I love this machine. It is light, quiet and powerful. It makes vacuuming a pleasure."
