The Miele S 7210 Twist also aced our tough carpet-cleaning tests May 19 2014

Upright vacuums. Upright vacuums cost less and clean a bit better overall than canister vacuums, though they’re also noisier as a group. And even the best typically make as much noise as a ringing telephone. Three models from Miele, including the Miele S 7210 Twist, $450, edged out other top picks in our noise tests (think of a TV at moderate volume). The Miele S 7210 Twist also aced our tough carpet-cleaning tests, and sucked up pesky pet hair with aplomb.
