Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner S2121OLYMPUS

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 AirClean 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.

Posted:9/27/13
Cons: none
" I am a longtime Miele user, and am very satisfied with this vacuum cleaner. It is light yet sturdy, relatively quiet (for a vacuum cleaner), easy to handle, and does a great job cleaning up dust as well as pet fur. I also use it to vacuum my car. I highly recommend this vacuum cleaner. You get great quality and reliability for your money. "

really low dust
Posted:12/4/12
Pros: low-dust operation, decent ergonomics, solid reliable design., fairly quiet
Cons: the cord isn't extremely long, replacement bags aren't the cheapest
" I realized only recently that I'm somewhat dust-sensitive, and that my 'bagless' style vacuum cleaner (a powerful modern brand with a see-through bagless canister, foam HEPA filter, and zillions of watts of power) seemed to have me sneezing even while I was using it. Vacuuming a few rooms (and then emptying the canister when full) seemed to result a some airborne dust.
I bought this Olympus canister unit for my hard-floored apartment and woodwork. I rarely use a broom or a dust mop at all anymore - just vacuum once a week or so to keep the dust down.
The Miele low-end models like these aren't loaded with high-end features and engineering, but when used properly they combine decent cleaning / suction power with a very low-dust system (it's the bag and the design of the enclosure that you're really paying for.)
I purchased the add-on exhaust dust filter (an optional accessory that makes it comparable to its superiors in the Miele canister family) which probably makes it even less likely to spew particles in the exhaust. For example,I can vacuum my bedroom moments before going to sleep and notice zero breathing problems or dust irritation.
The onboard upright holder for the floor attachment (on either the bottom or the side) is fairly clever and useful. When the vacuum is stowed or when you pause while vacuuming, you don't have the handle and hose flopping on the floor. "

ALL AROUND EXCELLLENCE
Posted:10/15/12
" I HAD CHECKED YOUR WEBSITE BEFORE COMING IN, SO I HAD AN IDEA OF WHAT I WANTED. YOUR SALESPERSON WAS VERY HELPFUL IN NARROWING DOWN MY CHOICES.
YOUR SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT AND THE VACUUM ARRIVED A FEW DAYS LATER AS PROMISED.
AS YOU CAN TELL, I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH EVERYTHING AND WOULD RECOMMEND YOUR STORE TO ANYONE.
