[Amazon.com] Miele Compact C1 Hardfloor Plus was $549 - now $299

I haven't seen this before, so could be a new model

Looks to be the same as the Compact C1 Black, but in Red and with an extra tool, the STB101 handheld turbo brush.

If one was looking at the Compact C1 Black then this would be the better deal as it's the same price.

Miele really only make quality vacuum. I don't think there is a single model that is bad.

This one, however, really only suitable for hardfloor. Don't bother use it for carpet if you have more carpet than a couple of door mat. Get a carpet version or buy another vacuum just for carpet.

This is the same as the Compact C1 Celebration Canister Vacuum in Yellow, that came with the extra accessories and it's a great vacuum!

Managed to get one for $225 with a 5 Year Warranty and 2,500 Aeroplan Bonus Miles. (plus a few dollars back from Ebates) now that was a great deal.

The suction is along the same lines on every Miele so you don't really lose out between models. However, the big differentiator is often the attachment head(s). This one has an adjustable head which is hardwood and/or low pile carpet and honestly, I don't really consider it worth buying. Seems dumb to pay $300 for a vacuum which is just OKAY at hardwood and low pile when you could get a $50-$100 that's along the same lines. Where Miele tends to shine in my opinion, beyond HEPA (some models), warranty, and bagged benefits, is when you swap to a parquet head (hardwood floor) it just glides beautifully. For carpets, you typically want an agitator (spin brush within) and that comes in with an electric variant ($$$$$$$$$) or air powered turbo head ($$$) - the adjustable one on this model does not come with a brush within the head, it's just pure suction.

Attachment heads are around +$70ish separately so generally you may as well get a Miele with a head that you want already since you'd assume it would be cheaper than buying separately.

tl;dr For most people, aim for buying a Miele with a air powered turbo head as it's good on carpets, decent at hardwood.

Model doesn't matter too much (IMO), unless you want something extra like a HEPA filter, need pet related attachments, or an electric head (air is fine, IMO).

Unfortunately, the cheaper models tend to have this head Image which I'm not too keen on at this general price range vs other vacuum manufacturers. However, if you have low pile carpet or minimal carpet in your home and mostly hardwood/tile, you could always give it a shot and see if it meets your needs, otherwise buy a parquet head ($70-$90) OR try this knock off for $30 (don't know if it's any good) https://www.amazon.ca/EZ-SPARES-Parquet ... B071VK7B9H

If you do have a decent chunk of carpet, could always go with OPs one, see whether you like it and if not either return or buy a turbo head ($90ish) attachment. I think the turbo head is decent enough on hardwood, although not quite as smooth of a movement.

I just like brush heads, you want a spinning brush that vibrates the carpet and untangles any debris or hair. I don't think the adjustable head really gets things like hair out.

Didn't know you could just buy a turbo head, thought it had to come with the initial vacuum. Thanks for sharing.

I have a c3. I have three heada for it: the non-ekectric turbo carpet brush, parquet brush, and the dual carpet/hardwood floor brush.

The dual caropet/hardwood brush is heavy to manuever and useless on carpet.
The parquet performa wonderfully, and is light and glides easily.
The aur suction powered turbo brush is ok on carpet, but it is also heavy.

I got the parquet brush at BBB for ~$35. This brush head is what makes my C3 shine. Without the parquet head, it would be a daunting task to vacuum.

I believe the C1 is made in China instead of Germany like the rest of their vacuums.

Yes, but the motor itself is still the same German-made motor that the C2 and C3 uses.

This model isn't compatible with the powerhead attachment.

I really don't think there's anything to worry about here. A good manufacturer knows how to manage the quality of product that comes out of their subco. You don't see many people refusing to buy Apple products because they're MIC.

Correct, but it is compatible with the turbo head attachment. I have hardwood floors with area rugs and it works fine, but if you have wall to wall I'd recommend a real power head.

i have a turbo brush and i must say i like it a lot. one key thing is to release the air valve if running over thicker carpet so the brushes still spin.
