There is so much I could say about the Miele S7 upright-it really is the first and only vacuum that I actually have expressed love for. But two features-maneuverability and the HEPA system-are what keeps Miele at the top of the class of vacuums and makes many home owners happy to clean their home. As you learn more about the company and the products, you'll see that Miele vacuums are tested to last you over 20 years and the material-virgin polymer plastic-is recyclable.
SwivelNeck Feature ™
As you can see in the video above, the SwivelNeck feature makes vacuuming so much easier. Also, the 6 inch clearance of the vacuum allows you to lay it flat and reach under tables and chairs.
Sealed System™Technology (HEPA)
Watch closely in the in the video below. What you see is the seam that connects the cover to the vacuum bag and the body of the unit. When you turn the vacuum on, that seam seals shut so that any particles captured from the air, remain in the vacuum.
Some vacuums that claim to have a HEPA filter still release particles into the air through the any slight opening in the unit. Miele, however, can trap and retain 99.99% of fine particles with their Sealed System™ Design which is strengthened by a 3-stage process: 1) the air-tight unit crafted by the best raw materials, 2) the HyClean™ dust bag with self-sealing closure and 3) the certified HEPA filter that all together provide the purest air quality.

Mrs Mo's Review
The Miele vacuum has redefined my idea of what you should get from an upright vacuum. If you want a product that is easy to use, keeps your home free of allergens and particles and will last you over 20 years and is recyclable, then I suggest go with Miele. While the price point of $549 - $849 for the S7 series may turn you off, remember that you are buying superior performance with lasting power. The Miele is an investment, just like a flat screen TV, treadmill or dishwasher. And did you think of this: The Miele is also eco-friendly because a) it is made with recyclable materials and b) it will last longer and so you don't have to keep throwing away a cheap broken model.
If you live in the Princeton area (like me), you can visit the Miele USA headquarters on 9 Independence Way, Princeton, NJ or visit one of Miele's retail locations, Mrs G TV & Appliances on Rt 1 South in Lawrenceville.
