Overall, this is an great vacuum cleaner with an unbeatable Miele warranty. I spent the last couple of years in Europe, so when I moved back to the US one of the first things I did was get rid of the horrendous upright Bissel to make way for the Miele.

We mostly have hardwood floors, and a bit of tile and short pile carpet. The vacuum works great on all surfaces, and I've used it on drapes, sofas and all sorts of other non-textile furniture. It is very quiet (I mostly have it on "basic mode"), easy to maneuver and the head fits under and around just about anything. And it's downright beautiful!

There are some cons, though. The cord is fairly short, meaning you can't vacuum your whole apartment without unplugging and changing sockets, and the bags are small, meaning you go through a lot of them, especially if you have pets. Also, if you have carpeting, maybe you should opt for something slightly more powerful than 1200 watts (for hardwoods it's more than enough though).

Overall, I'm very happy with the Miele Polaris. Of course I would've preferred one of the upscale models that have longer cords, more suction power and bigger bags, but for now those are way out of my budget. That being said, if faced with a choice between the Polaris and vacuum cleaner that fits all my requirements but is of a different brand, I wouldn't even think twice about sticking to the Miele.

I have a lab mix dog that sheds year round. My last vacuum, a BOSCH with a power head, was great at vacuuming the dog hair off any surface, including the dog bed. I went over the dog hair on dog bed several times, tried different tools, all to no avail. Disappointed.

    Comments about Miele S 4212 Turquoise Neptune Canister Vacuum Cleaner:

    Best thing about this vacuum is being able to clean up dust from the floors, window seat, window sills & up along the ceilings of our very old house. It also does a superior job cleaning the oriental rugs & stair runner. Sweeping, dust mops, lemon oil, Endust -- none of these allowed a good enough cleaning of floors, etc. It's also so easy to use & very light. It's possible to keep the house clean w/o constantly switching from dust mop to vacuum to cloth, etc. Really love this vacuum.

    Comments about Miele S 4212 Turquoise Neptune Canister Vacuum Cleaner:

    Bought this model for hardwood floors & added HEPA filter system. No need to purchase more expensive units which come w/ HEPA. You can add HEPA. Go to manufacuter's web site & you will see this info. Machine is very light. I can lift w/ one hand (61 Yr old woman). I do feel cord should be longer but not a deal breaker. Miele is the brand for me after lengthy reviews. The HEPA filter sold me plus lightweight.

        Comments about Miele S 4212 Turquoise Neptune Canister Vacuum Cleaner:

        After extensive research I chose to go with the Neptune becuase it included both the turbo attachment and hard floor brush. I felt a little guilty spending [$] on a vacuum but it has been well worth the money considering my entire house is hardwood floors with a few area rugs. The suction is excellent, while the unit is comfortable to control and is extremely quiet. The only negative is I wish the cord was 5ft longer. Would recommend as a strong buy.

          Comments about Miele S 4212 Turquoise Neptune Canister Vacuum Cleaner:

          I previously purchased a vacuum that was highly rated by a consumer product testing company; however, it was so heavy and cumbersome that I hated to use it. The Neptune, by contrast, is so wonderfully lightweight that it makes vacuuming the stairs a breeze and it performs well on both hardwood floors and carpeting. In fact, it picked up dirt that my former "star" vacuum missed. I love my Neptune!

            I love this vacuum. It works well, has great suction, is quiet (for a vacuum), and can easily reach into many places. The only problems I've found are that the suction arm at the end of the hose can't stand up on its own and it takes up a lot of storage space. It's well worth those inconveniences, though.
