      Wonderful, efficient vacuum. The carpet attachment is big so isn't nimble like the regular head. It does the job quickly and quietly. My cleaning lady likes it too!

          This vacuum can't suck up anything that's relativly big (example, popcorn kernals). It also breaks down all the time.

          Comments about Miele S5 Series Capricorn Canister Vacuum:

          If you have furry pets, this is the ultimate vacuum for you. I have 8 cats. A friend who has a dog and I bought this vacuum at the same time. We BOTH could not believe how much fur this vacuum sucked up the first time we used them. My burgundy carpet had taken on a white hue with all the cat hair my [...] vacuums didn't get up, but the Capricorn restored the color of my carpeting.With my mix of hardwood floors, carpeting and floor rugs, I lOVE having the controls in the handle so I can easily change the settings. All the other models have their setting controls on the canister.And it's QUIET!! Two of my cats didn't even run from the room when I turned it on, and virtually no dust blows out from the canister.If you read other reviews online, you'll see complaints about the stiffness of the hose and the length of the power cord, and I agree with those complaints. But I wouldn't let those minor issues stop you from getting this vacuum. All its pluses FAR outweigh those minuses.And yes, this is one pricey vacuum, but I figure I've spent just as much on [...] canister vacuums and getting them repaired the past 8 years, and none of them worked as well as the Capricorn.If you don't have furry pets, then this vacuum might be overkill for you. Miele makes a number of models and a number of optional accessories for your specific situation.
