Miele S8310 Power Plus Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner, Obsidian Black
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.

I've been wanting a Miele for a long time as they have such a great reputation. I've had a string of cheaper vacuum cleaners made by other brands over the years but it was a total false economy as they always failed within a year!
So....I'm THRILLED with this Miele. Everything about it screams quality...from the weight of the tube and hose to the quietness of the motor and the AMAZING sucking action. You can adjust the power from low (curtains) to high (fitted carpet). I'm using a mid setting for a medium size Victorian villa with mixture of carpets, rugs and wood flooring. Even then it virtually sucks the carpet off the floor boards!
One thing I would say though, is that this specific model is not super lightweight to use. I would suggest that if you have a small house/cottage/flat or have a physical restriction then maybe choose one of Miele's smaller units. Pushing this around a fitted carpet can feel a bit like a work out....especially as the sucking action is so powerful. Personally I love that as I know it's really doing it's job.
I just can't believe the difference between this and the other cheaper ones I've had in the past. HOW has it taken me this long to get a Miele??! This is German design at it's best and, in my opinion, WELL worth the money!!

Our 20plus year old Miele was a bit battered and tho still working thought would replace with this new one and not disappointed. It seems lighter, and has brilliant adjustable suction on all surfaces. (Don't be put off by description which says only 1 position). We have wood, tiled, carpets and rugs, and good on all and compact to store. Dont hesitate to buy.

Excellent product at a reasonable price
I bought this after checking the Which? recommended list and have been very happy with the choice. It's an excellent well built product, as you would expect from Miele. Plenty of suction, most of our floors are hard so no problem there, but there are 6 power options in total to accommodate soft furnishings, carpets etc. The hose and lead are long so stairs aren't a problem and it's light enough to move around. I haven't bought new bags yet but understand that bagged vacuums are better for retaining the dust they suck up so switched from our ancient Dyson on that basis.

In a word... Amaze
The well known bagless vacuum hose broke and I was really fed up with seeing my own dirt, dust in the cleaner - so I brought this Miele. Should had brought one years ago. Don't mind paying for the dust bags as the dust filtration system is very good. All in all a very good buy.
