The Miele S2111 compact vacuum is is one of the best vacuums I have used. It is the cheapest and the least powerful, only 1600w, of the Miele range of vacuums.
When using the Miele S2111 in comparison with a Dyson the carpets come up just as clean looking like new. It is also equally effective on wood and tiled floors.
This vacuum is one of Which magazines best buys.
