Comment:
We have a 100% wool, very low pile wall-to-wall in the living room and dressing room. Although the cord is shorter than others, this vacuum is a dream. Long hose, long telescopic wand, great accessories and the power brush roll can be turned on or off...oh, and there are at least 6 carpet height adjustments. It weighs nothing at all. The parts are all made of quality plastic and steel (and the wheels will not damage your wood floors). <br /><br />I previously had a large, bagged Hoover upright, followed by a cheap plastic, bagless Hoover upright which practically ate my carpet. And all that dust & cleaning one had to do with the bagless...no more!! No cheap vacuums for me anymore. If I had to do it all over again I think I would buy one of the $600-800 Mieles. The only vacuums with 7 year warranty on motor and 7 year warranty on parts.<br /><br />My housekeeper and I are in heaven!

Comment:
Has great suction for a small vacuum. Traded in my Dyson for this one because the Dyson was awkward and heavy. Am very happy so far.

Comment:
After years of $50-$150 vacuums, I took the plunge of a better model for our new house. I did a lot of research online and in stores. After about a year of research I picked the Miele Delphi because it included a powered brush roll for the occasional rugs in our house. I added a parquet floor cleaner (not included) for the hardwood surfaces. <br /><br />So far, I've been extremely impressed with the sound levels, flexibility, light weight, and cleaning performance of the Miele. It's true that the power cord could be a little longer than 16ft, but it's a small concession. I'm not vacuuming the hallways of a mansion, after all.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
