Consumer Reports faults this vacuum for lacking manual height adjustment which they claim is superior to automatic height adjustment YET they rate this machine is better at carpet cleaning than others with manual adjustment

Comment:
I recently purchased the Miele Twist after an exhaustive search and reading many reviews. <br /><br />I think it's important to understand how the reviewer uses the product to fully understand how relatable the review is so here is my vacuum situation: I live in an older very large farmhouse with 90% wood floors, area rugs and one large second-floor room that has wall to wall carpeting. We also own two large-breed dogs. <br /><br />Because of the amount of vacuuming I do and the large area I cover, I wanted an upright vacuum with a detachable wand that would offer the benefits of both types of vacuums. <br /><br />Most uprights, I learned, are not designed for use on floors because the brushes continue to run. With a simple flip of a switch, the Twist allows you to turn off the carpet setting as you roll onto the floor allowing you to just use suction. It may not sound like much but I can start in one room of my house and vacuum throughout the first floor without lifting the machine.<br /><br />My favorite feature, without a doubt, is the wand. It is easily detached, produces adjustable, albeit very strong, suction and it telescopes to three lengths.<br /><br />This vacuum is also extremely well designed! Unlike so many other upright styles the tools nest in the back, so you're never knocking them off as you maneuver around. <br /><br />Some reviewers have said that the vacuum is heavy and I would agree that it is however, I rarely need to pick it up and if I do, there is an easy handle on the back.<br /><br />There is a very long cord which is good in some respects but seems to get tangled. I do wish the cord was retractable.<br /><br />Overall, I think it's a fantastic purchase and I would high recommend this to my friends.

Comment:
I bought this vacuum to replace a Dyson we had purchased in 2005 and repaired approximately five times over the life of the vacuum (minor parts). It had finally become more economical to purchase new. I purchased this thru a locally-owned vacuum sales and repair shop--the shop offers free labor after the warranty expires for vacuums purchased there.<br /><br />Our house is a mixture of lineoleum, laminate floors with area and small rugs, and carpet. The vacuum does well on all of the surfaces and is easy to maneuver. <br /><br />The cord is long enough for me to do the entire first floor (five rooms) from one outlet in the center.<br /><br />For area rugs (ours are 5x8 and 8x11), the vacuum does very well with the brushes turned on. I recommend caution, however, when vacuuming near the corners of the rug--the brushes are pretty strong and can pull the corner up into the vacuum, unless you have them tacked down.<br /><br />For smaller rugs (2x3 or hallway runners), especially ones with a longer nap (like in the bathroom), you'll probably want to shake them outside. I was unable to keep the brushes on while vacuuming them, as they tended to pick the rug up and make it difficult to vacuum. If you turn the brushes off, the suction is either too powerful (smooth or low-pile) or not powerful enough (curtains or high-pile). This is the reason I gave it four stars--if there were half-star options, it would have four and a half.<br /><br />The filters are excellent and easy to replace, as are the bags. The cord-wrapping system takes a bit of getting used to, but it's pretty good overall.<br /><br />The wand design is excellent and easy to use. The tools did pretty well on pet fur on our couches (we have one short-haired and one long-haired dog, both adults), although the upholstery tool is a bit undersized.<br /><br />I wound up purchasing the Twist over the Salsa or the Pet models, based solely on price. The Salsa was $80 more and included a headlight and HEPA filter. I purchased a HEPA filter for $50. The Pet model used a different filter (charcoal-based, to cut down on odors) and included the pet and stairs tool for $100 more. I will probably purchase the tool for $70 in the near future.
