An Epinions user reviews the Miele S4210 Carina canister vacuum cleaner: “The Miele S4210 Carina canister vacuum cleaner, while a little expensive for the price tag, is such a fantastic replacement. I debated going down to Sears or Target and just picking up a hundred dollar vac like I’ve done many a time before, but they always disappoint me.
The operation of the Miele S4210 Carina canister vacuum cleaner is smooth and extraordinarily quiet (the dog no longer hides when the vacuum is running). I upgraded to the optional HEPA filter and the exhaust air, while not pine-fresh, smells clean. A few basic attachments were enough to get window sills, shelves, crown molding, and floors done. It picked up enough dirt, dust, and dog hair that I can finally sleep soundly at night.
There’s just one problem, which I have seen mentioned elsewhere — short power cord. The Miele S4210 Carina canister vacuum cleaner isn’t going to work as well in suburbia; it’s a compact machine for compact spaces, and probably more suitable for urban dwellers. I had to replug when moving from the kitchen to the bedroom, but otherwise, it worked great.”
