Just received mine today.
Any buyers please be aware that the Debenhams listing is inaccurate.
The unit is actually WHITE, not blue and the wattage on the unit is NOT 1200w and is the eco model 700w.
Not that its a bad thing at all. Suction is still good for normal usage and build quality is great. I'd rather have this than most other units available at this price point.
#4
Miele all the way. Iv had vax, dyson, Electrolux, bissell - Miele has been the best I've had. I got the c2 deal posted on here it's a 1600w. Not sure what the 700w is like but I haven't heard any complaints and you can trust a Miele. There was 20% off their bags(all accessories) on Miele website might still be on.
#5
Thanks for the nod on the bags it's still on. I get mine tomorrow so we'll see.

£150 for a bagged vacuum cleaner??

Reviews seem mediocre (apart from commending its quietness). For example:

S8320 seems to provide better suction:

The reason this is probably now a lower wattage than some older ones, is due to new EU regs on energy efficiency.

That review is for the 700Watt version not the 1200 I have read the earlier comment re the power so we'll see what Debenhams send. Also the price is not £150.

so debenhams sending this one http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10701_10001_325008037480_-1

82% Best Buy in Which magazine January 2013. This model has been discontinued though I believe.

I think that is the newer model. They look pretty much identical.

I can't be bothered with these as I will need to buy bags, which is an unnecessary outlay! The only reason that I was slightly tempted was the name-dropping - Ah! Finally I have something made by Miele! My house now has several vacuum cleaners .. one ball Dyson, one upright Dyson, one Vax and one no name... Some obsession!

How on earth do people use one of these cylinder cleaners, they are a killer on your back.

kalawelwyn
so debenhams sending this one:

Yep, that's what I got. Definately the 8390 from the product sticker on the base of the unit.
People will continue to debate over bag/less. If you don't think it will work then there's plenty of other choices. Miele however continue to produce these and stay in business so they must be doing something right.
I sent an email to Debenhams to point out their error so we'll see what they say. I'm happy enough with the unit so doubt it'll be returned...

4 reviews on Amazon 5 out of 5. I would say it states clearly this model is a 1200watt model so if you get a 700watt it's different to what they are advertising and I would check this out.

It's got bags. Unnecessary outlay.
#22
The 700watt is a silence plus , the blue 1200 watt which is advertised is a silence solution. If your getting a white 700 watt they have sent you wrong one.
Having looked at the other models on their website they r also selling a silence eco line White 700 watt, they may have sent this instead in error

It averages at around 70p a month for the bags. I used to think it was silly to buy a bag less nowadays but once u have experienced the difference and quality u realise at 70 p a month that's nothing and worth it for better overall machine

Well the newer Henry's aren't quite as good as the old ones due to the weaker motor and its probably the same here. This would be a deal if it was the more powerful type especially as bagged cleaners generally need more power to push air flow through the bag. It's much easier for a cyclonic cleaner to use a lower wattage motor.

I'm not sure which model Debenhams are sending but the spec's of the 700W models don't look good on the Miele site. This one is good for efficiency and lack of exhaust dust but for carpets and hard flooring/normal suction its rated very poorly at 'D'

Seems more logical to get one of the more powerful Miele's.

That's fair enough for light usage but you have to factor in some people use their vacuum all over the place. Outside in the garage, shed or workshop, vacuuming the car and the house itself may have ongoing DIY projects. These aren't for that type of use. They are more for people occasionally hoovering. Obviously your not going to use in a workshop where you might use a bag or more when you vacuum after a brush up. Also being a cylinder cleaner its not going to be great for carpets as there is no agitating brush bar. Plus you don't want to be too occasional with it as most household dust is human skin and you don't want a half full bag of skin powder in your house as it just becomes a feast for insects etc. Yes I know you won't see them normally but if you do drop the bag and it splits its not nice.

Still no question there are advantages to the Miele like low sound output which gives you the option to vacuum anytime you want practically and the fact you won't get your hands dirty and I don't think there aren't many vacuums that match it for not releasing dust in the exhaust. It's just it has a limited range of uses and is more expensive in consumables.
#27
Agree more powerful Miele will be better , I was dubious at first with the ratings of the 1600 watt c2 being a C hard floor D carpet but ordered and tried and it is the best Hoover ive had in terms of cleaning and build quality. I have seen Vax with full A ratings but wouldn't tough with barge pole.

Yip an average of 70p per month for the average user. I'm an average user, I have an old vacuum for outdoors ie car. Lol please stop telling scary stories of bugs infesting my Miele , I won't sleep tonight.

Surely if your not happy with it as its not as described then you can return it for a full refund. They might not have suggested it but that doesn't mean its not available to you. Best of luck.

If you want a Miele then if I were you I'd definitely get a more powerful version. I've yet to see any particular praise for any of the so called more efficient models from various manufacturers. It's just a power downgrade forced upon them by the EU. The only company happy about it, seems to be Dyson as they have designed very powerful high efficiency motors and cyclonic cleaners have an advantage that they don't need quite the same power as bagged cleaners to produce the same suction. It's still legal at the moment to buy 1600W cleaners and you'd be better off with one of those.

That's such a poor response, if I have the same experience I'll go straight to twitter and hope to get much more. I suggest you do the same, as we all know the big players are very nervous about bad publicity on social media.

It's Debenhams' lack of concern I don't like... I do like the vacuum. Still a deal to me.
As a point of note, even the more powerfull units at 1600w still have a carpet cleaning rating of 'D' so can't all be too bad....

Thanks for this it's really useful. I guess it all depends on what they are advertising and what they send. I'll let you all know tomorrow.

I currently use a Dyson which does not require a bag as we know. I'd happily pay someone 70p PCM to empty it for me. any takers? the I'm in M21, you could probably get a quid out of me...

I have a Miele cat and dog, which does just fine for household use. This one seems a little underpowered.

Got the £160 Panasonic upright for £40 that was posted a while back but previously had a Miele which lasted over 10 years and went down two flights of stairs TWICE onto a hard tiled floor and survived.. In fact it never broke of it's own accord - it was user error..

700w doesn't sound much at all for a Miele..we have a 2000w model and grateful for the extra power.

The post is for a 1200 model. Please comment on the post or things just get confused. If anything other than advertised arrives tomorrow then I'll amend the post. I'll also issue a call to arms via twitter as I've previously said. Thanks.
