I don't know who would say it makes "the Electrolux motor run hot and burn out.". I've used the perfect hepa bags in my Luxes without any problem. In fact, I find them to have better airflow than paper. (as measured per the Baird airflow meter) So, better airflow should dissipate heat better. In fact, I would venture to say that it would benefit the motor in that no, or little dust will pass through the motor. The only caveat that I can see as to using the perfect bags, the cardboard strip that crosses the inlet opening, can be difficult to puncture through. What I'm starting to do is tear that strip off, so the door closes more easily. Only caveat to this is that when you do change the bag, the little hole in the rubber is open and has the potential to leak dirt/debris.
I wonder if these machines come with the same motors and attachments that the dealers have. Also, how are these units priced as compared to what the dealers are trying to weasel out of the public. I'd laugh if they are being sold at discounted prices.

What about the Miele S140 series?/ stick vac Anyone got these?
Yes Vacmanuk, I have a Miele S147 with the SEB 217 powerhead. I consider it to be one of the few stick vacs that are effective. It has more suction and airflow than many canisters. Filtration and filtration options are great. It has multiple configurations to suit each individual. Drawbacks that I can see are: 1) bags are small, 2)a little on the heavy side, depending on which configuration you have set up.
