Meile Compliment - Meile Vacuum Is Worth The $$$
For those not sure about spending the extra bucks on a vacuum. The Meile product is well worth the $$. I've had mine over a year. They are made so air tight that even when you empty the bag a cover slides over the open hole to prevent dust exiting the full bag. Amazingly quiet and goes from carpet to tile to wood without missing anything. It has different suction levels for all types of carpet. Owned by all the Vacuum repairmen in town and perfect for allergy/pollen/asthma issues.
It's the best hands down, I'll never buy another brand (and this will last for 20 yrs at least). Hope that helps!
