After much research into stick vacuums and buying and disposing of three other models in the last two years I finally (and reluctantly) decided to invest in the Miele S163 and am thrilled with its performance. My experience with the other stick vacuums had convinced me that:
1. Anything cordless or rechargeable was absolutely worthless
2. A powerful motor is required to defy gravity in not only picking up dirt but holding it in the dirt chamber
3. Bagless models are high maintenance
I wanted an easily accessible vacuum I could operate with one arm to frequently clean hardwood and tile floors of cat hair, cat litter, food crumbs and stuff that gets dragged in from outside and also to pick up surface dirt on rugs and carpet. The Miele's performance for all these tasks is exceptional.
By contrast, the last stick vacuum I owned before this was the Oreck ElectrikBroom, which was a complete waste of money because it:
1. Only picked up retained hair and fine dust; it barely picked up crumbs and fine cat litter and when it did would drop them right back on the floor when the the motor was turned off.
2. Would perform for less than 15 minutes on a charge
3. Had to be cleaned out after every use.
4. Was difficult to maneuver around furniture because of its cumbersome floor nozzle.
The Miele has a flexible and streamlined floor nozzle, a powerful, but not too noisy, motor that can pick up and hold sizable objects (including coins), uses disposable bags, and never loses power because its 25-foot cord plugs into an outlet. I would not recommend
it to thoroughly clean rugs and carpet but it does a reasonably good job of removing surface debris.
