Miele's most expensive canister yet

Miele upped the ante with the Uni-Q 8990 by introducing skeleton construction, auto suction control, chrome trim, and underbody LED park lights, adding the 236 powerbrush accessory. Noise's lower than any other Miele vac. Suction/airflow remain excellent, though airflow is less than the older Miele Blue Moon. Casters on USA model do little to ease canister over bumps (overseas Uni_Q's get floating " Powerdrive" casters). LED underbody lights help users find park slots in dark closets. New velvet bumper strip reduces wall marking. However, at $1499 list price this vac's only for those who want Miele's bells and whistles - it offers no better suction nor pickup over Miele's less costly Marlin or other S8 vacs.

very low vacuum motor noise,

basic castors give rough ride on some floors,
auto mode sometimes miscalculates suction,
less airflow than the discontinued Blue Moon.
