Miele S8310 Power Plus Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner, Obsidian Black
Excellent suction, not too noisy, bags fills a little quickly
Overall the vacuum is great. The suction is incredible, you have to be careful not to put it too close to things! Unlike other reviews I've read, I don't find it too noisy. The air blowing from the top can get a little annoying. Other downside is that the first bag has filled fairly quickly, although this may just be because I did a lot of hoovering because i like the cleaner so much!

How Quiet can a Cleaner Be?
This is our first Miele appliance and the first impressions are excellent. It is powerful, we have not needed a higher setting than 2nd out of 6 power settings. It is so quiet in comparison with our trusty old (and defunct) Bosch and easy to use. It seems very well made and robust but not heavy.There is a 2 year guarantee and an option to increase this to 10 years with a comprehensive looking cover.

This is an excellent vacuum cleaner. It is very light, easy to move around, it's quiet and also picks up extremely well. I can thoroughly recommend this product.

Miele is the best
My previous Miele was nearly 20 years old. Still working but felt performance dropped off somewhat. So just bought this one. I love the fact that is much lighter than my old white pearl, I no longer feel I am pulling a tank behind me it just glides across the floor. It certainly has very strong suction which is ideal for my wooden floors, the few rugs I have I just lower the suction so I don't find that a problem. What I do miss is the fact that the cable lengthened and retracted as I used it on my white pearl, it also automatically retracted when I unplugged it, this one I have to press the 'comfort' sign on the cylinder. I liked the fact I could park the tube if I wanted to pause and it switched off, this one I have to switch it off manually.
However, the white pearl was top of the range bar one when I bought it. This one is very reasonably priced. I don't expect it to last as long as the old one ,neither will I probably, but then nothing wears as well these days.
So would I recommend this machine, Yes definitely, it does the job very well and is a good price. Oh and my husband says it is much quieter than my old one.

Miele S8310 Vacuum Cleaner
This is a basic vacuum cleaner that is very powerful, quite and cleans very well. Yet it is very cheap when compared to the completion and other models within the range. My previous basic Miele vacuum cleaner gave 10years of service and I expect this to do the same. Based on that previous experience and the experience of others within my family, I feel you can not beat this model or make.

This is a very stylish hoover which is replacing an upright Dyson DC02. For it's size it is amazingly powerful and quiet, brilliant on hard floors, the head gets under furniture easily. On carpet, the head adjusts but we found that it was still hard to push/pull as the thing was so powerful. Luckily there are 5 different power levels, so you can turn it down. Original bags are expensive, but compatible ones can be found.

Only the best will do
I have recently replaced my old miele S274i ...that I purchased back in 2001 (the motor burnt out) ...so checked out all the new miele vacume cleaners on the market now and chose this model.Keeping in mind my last one lasted 14 yrs of hard work! My last one was very heavy and this model is so much lighter ,it is now a pleasure do the vacuming again.What a brillant little helper! Only one small thing to say, it has a very powerfull suction,so I open the vent near the hose handle.I have thick carpets, wooden floors and tiled floors... so this cleaner does it all so well !

Great hoover. I always use miele vacuums. I run a small cleaning business and finally convinced my only remaining customer who didn't have one to invest. I am very happy. Can't be beaten.
