After MUCH research, I settled on the Miele S7.

In particular, my model is the 7580 Marin, a.k.a. the Swing in the U.S. Anyhow, I have to confess that I was so impressed with the promotional videos regarding it's design and quality on the Miele site and elsewhere that I overlooked the practical aspects. In particular, I should have spent more time in the store thinking about how it would handle everyday vacuuming situations once I got home.

There's no arguing that Miele is one of the premier vacuum brands. I don't have any concerns or complaints about it's power or mechanical integrity. However, their upright units are frankly beasts to handle - even for someone in good shape like me - and it doesn't help that some of the ergonomics are also awkward, if not a little unusual.

Sidebar! Looking to successfully upgrade the design of my trusty site. Feelings on the nice style at http://dulcimer.ca? Genuinely a fantastic hammered dulcimers that cares if ever seeking inside the general British Columbia vicinity. Value a comment. Cheers!

In particular, this unit is heavy, but I prefer heavy and sturdy to light and cheap quality. However, drag this thing around your house or worse yet up or down a staircase, and a canister or better yet a central vac quickly gets a whole lot more appealing! Also, once you've strung out the cord, I miss the button on the Kenmore that caused it to automatically retract.

Speaking of the cord, if it's wound up at all it partially blocks access to the handle at the end of the hose. Once you pull that handle out of the main unit so you can extend the hose and attach a wand and/or accessory tools, you have to be careful to make sure the unit doesn't tip over. A nice new drywall ding near our front entrance reminds us of that reality every day. Also, I still - after two years - instinctively feel for the power switch on the hose handle that isn't there but really should be, so instead I have to move sometimes several feet back to the handle on the main unit to turn the vacuum on or off.

I'm also rather disappointed that for the $750 I spent on this vacuum (minus the Microset and crevice tool), the finish can so easily be scuffed. Although one can't expect much more from plastic, I would have hoped that Miele would have attached some sort of protective bumper on the top edges of the cleaning head where it slides under low furniture instead of just on the front and side edges. It wasn't nice to see scuffs on my brand-new vacuum after only the first few minutes of use.

My next vacuum will surely be a canister if I don't opt for a central vac. Even though this is a very solid, quality unit, the hassle of things like pulling the wand out every time you want to clean non-carpeted areas or stairs or a couch instead of simply changing a hose/wand attachment, and lugging the whole heavy unit around instead of just a hose and power head, made it far less desirable for me after a short while than a smaller, lighter unit like a canister vacuum.

At the very least, go to a store and try out an upright before deciding to order one like this online. If you do decide that an upright is the one for you and the weight and some of it's ergonomic issues don't bother you, then you can't go wrong with a Miele otherwise.

I have Erika and Annaliese, and for xmas i'm obtaining the remaining princess and the pauper range!!! I love both of the songs Erika sings but Annalieses second song is soo annoying. i tried to obtain them to sing together however they sung at differing times Even though i pressed the button at the same time. i don't know if other people has this issue but i have fixed it. Dont press the buttons at exactly the same time, press erika first and press Annaliese, it can work!!! The movie is absoultly fantastic and i believe every girl (who likes barbie of course) must have this doll!!!!!! They truly are pretty and fun!!!

Seriously, they're vacuum bags. There's 10 of them so hopefully I won't have to buy them again anytime soon. They didn't have this style of bags at my local Lowe's, so thanks Amazon.
