    Actually does what a vacuum should do, 12 Feb 2010

    This review is from: Miele Power Plus S5211 Bagged Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner, 2200 Watt, Deep Black (Kitchen & Home)

    I have never written one of these reviews before, but I have read other people’s and find them very useful – and this product impressed me enough to make it worth the effort. In a nutshell: The Miele 5211 has few bells-and-whistles, but is a well-made, functional product and genuinely does what it should do.
    As an ex-engineer and for the past 3 years, house-husband – I have become aware of a distinct bifurcation in the quality of household appliances. Sadly, the Cheap-and-“cheerful” (but not for long, if you’re the user) seems to be increasingly dominate the market.
    We had a Philips cylinder vacuum for 20 years, which was exceptionally reliable – though not popular, so it was hard to get bags for. By mistake, a part of the vacuum was thrown away, so we had to buy another one.
    In our naivety, we glibly bought a mid-priced product which seemed to be very popular. Mistake! It’s performance was simply inadequate (even with an empty bag), it was flimsy, and the ill-fitting tubes leaked.
    We took it back and up-graded to a top-of-the-line Morphy Richards. This had much more suction – although it was extremely noisy. However, the build quality was poor and in 3 months the rewind stopped working properly. Over the next 18 months, the tubes split, rendering it useless.
    Determined not to be “fooled again”, this time I took great care to study the available information. Sadly, there is not a central resource for independent reviews. The “Which?” reviews are fine except that their detailed tests can only be of selections from current models, not the entire range and long-term reliability information is patchy, partly because a year later that model is replaced with another. This is actually an important (to the manufacturers) aspect of modern marketing – keep changing the models, then no one can determine how bad the product is. Rather sadly, it is also an error made by firms with very good products – presumably in the misguided (?) belief that the market wants the word “New” in their purchases.
    Miele’s reputation was good internationally (and the US consumer sites can be pretty damning of inadequacies), and while some models were less good than others, overall it seemed a good choice. It was.
    We’ve now had it for a month – and I can’t find anything to criticise. (You may have noticed, I’m a normally a pretty critical chap)
    We have it set below half power, and it is very quiet indeed – but still offers the same suction as its predecessor. At full power, the suction is incredible. (As a sidenote – the power rating is no higher than the Morphy Richards)
    In all the things that matter, it works and works well. The designers of the 5211 clearly included people who actually used a vacuum cleaner – something I am not convinced about with many other makes.
    We also have an upright Dyson – which used to be essential for the carpets. Now it is hardly ever used.

    IF YOU LIKE CYLINDER VACUUMS……., 9 July 2011

    ……then you will like and probably be impressed with the Miele S5211 Bagged Cylinder Vacuum. As one has come to expect from this manufacturer, it is of sturdy but elegant design, and in the league of performance very near, if not at the head of the tables. It does what it is supposed to – suck up dirt, and dust etc that lies in it’s path with a veracious appetite. No complaints, whatsoever with regards to this machine’s efficiency as a vacuum cleaner.

    My concern lies in it’s negative ease of use as opposed to an upright cleaner, for more senior users. My wife and I are in our late 60’s and are by no means incapacitated yet thank goodness, but have a reducing level of strength and physical flexibility commensurate with our age, and find that a cylinder cleaner (and this is our first) markedly more tiring to get out of the cupboard and to the cleaning site, setting up for use, the actual use itself, and the re-storing after use – all involving bending, pulling and lifting. It’s not monumentally strenuous but considerably more than that involved in using an upright vacuum. It also takes up a bit more space than an upright for storage purposes, which restricts the places suitable for keeping it in.

    Methinks a younger persons machine.

    If you’re looking for a new vacuum cleaner, then you need look no further! We wish we had bought one of these ears ago! We used to have a Dyson – yes it was a pretty good at picking up awkward things like hair on carpets, but it sounded like a Boeing 747 and had reliability issues… indeed I remember seeing a review somewhere by a person who swears by them, saying how reliable they were, yet by their own admission they got through 5 Dysons in 7 years! Then along comes this attractively priced Miele cleaner with excellent build quality that looks and feels like it will last many years, and more suction power than anything we’ve ever seen, yet pleasingly quiet – at lower power settings the motor is almost a whisper, and you can still pick up those awkward hairs / strands of cotton. Even better – a plaster of Paris ornament fell off the wall, with a fragment falling under my swivel chair – without realising it, every time I sat down a wheel was grinding the fragment into a fine powder, deep into the carpet – it was embedded into the fibers so much that I thought I was never going to get it out, but this cleaner removed it all in a couple of passes without even needing the nozzle attachment.

    So… perhaps you’re thinking there is a downside – this cleaner uses bags – so what! You can easily re-use them – either by a slightly more time consuming way of pulling the contents out through the inlet hole, or much quicker: cutting the bag open along the seam at the “base”, and resealing it by folding the end back over itself, and using a cut-to-size binder spine clip to clamp it shut. I have reused the same bag 3 times so-far without any problems whatsoever. I’m a bloke – typically for my gender I usually hate vacuuming – however this machine makes it so painless that I actually enjoy vacuuming now!

    Pros:
    1) Top Quality at low price – built to last.
    2) Excellent air filter – no detectable dust or odors – although if you want, you can easily get hold of HEPA air filters and upgrade it for much less than the retail HEPA model. The air it emits will then be clean to laboratory standards!
    3) Very quiet – the only time it makes real noise is when you put the nozzle attachment on and use the cleaner at full power – the motor might still be quiet, but with so much air-flow it sounds like a hurricane!
    4) Internal storage compartment for tools.
    5) Compact build, easy to carry around and store.

    Cons – none, other than the compact size and internal tools storage means slightly smaller dust bag – but on the other hand the excellent suction means dust is a lot more compressed in the bag, so it can last 4 or 5 months before needing replacement (or emptying as above!).
