| An Excellent Solution for Severe Asthma Sufferers|
Reviewed by: Asthma from Colorado
We purchased the Miele Tango at the recommendation of our Pulmonologist, Dr. Anthony Cuomo, without fully realizing the benefit we would enjoy. Thank God we invested the funds to purchase it.
We have several other vacuums, including an excellent Dyson model, but none of them compares to the effectiveness of the Miele. We have used it everyday since it arrived on a variety of applications, from carpet, tile, upholstery, as well as the really dusty parts of the house. We live in a very remote area in the middle of the Saint Elisabeth National Forest, and the dust, sagebrush and other allergens are present year round. The Miele has reduced the allergens significantly.
The quality of the attachments is noteworthy. Portions of our Dyson vacuum snapped off or became dysfunctional. The Miele is not plagued by these issues.
I can think of one minor point that might be improved in a subsequent version. The paint is prone to being scrapped off on the vacuum head if you happen to hit a corner.

I have not bought one of these vacs yet, but I was checking them out on tech blogs for the past month. I stopped in to achoo to check them out and they look really modern. I saw the Tango. No chance to really use it, but I am serious about getting this vacuum soon.

Miele Tango S7580 Upright Vacuum Cleaner
When the new S7 Series Uprights arrived from Miele, I was more than eager to take one home and test it. While I admire the
cleaning ability of the Miele canister, I have always been partial to upright vacuum cleaners.
At home I used the Tango on several different types of flooring: laminate wood flooring on the first floor,
high pile carpet in the bedrooms and on the steps, tile in the landing,
linoleum in the bathroom, and low pile carpet in the game room. While I have long been
impressed by Miele canister vacuum cleaners, I was initially unsure if the Tango would
live up to the hype.
This is one instance where my skepticism was completely unfounded.
What I like about the Miele Tango Vacuum
The best and most important
feature is the Tango's cleaning ability. On the high traffic carpet on the steps, the Tango not only removed pet hair but
also pulled up the matted down high pile carpet. The Tango was
also superb on low pile carpet, but what truly impressed me was its
ability to clean smooth flooring. On the tile, laminate and
linoleum, I turned the brush roll motor off and used the straight
suction of the Vortex motor only. Even in corners the suction was so great that it pulled in dirt and hair from
immediately around it. Most
uprights are woefully inadequate to handle smooth flooring, but with the
carpet/floor switch for the brush roll, I was able to clean each
of the smooth surfaces without the brush roll throwing dirt and debris around
the room. On the carpets the automatic suction control setting
worked admirably, but the manual control was useful on the two small throw rugs I cleaned. Regardless of the surface, the Tango's
two powerful motors worked together to clean anything I laid
The Tango was a marked departure from the two upright models I currently own. The Swivel-Neck design left me feeling as if I were
using a much smaller and more nimble vacuum than most uprights I have tested. The Swivel-Neck combined with the 360°-turning front wheels
gives the Tango a much more fluid sense of movement, and with the brush roll turned on, this vacuum truly does seem as if it self-propelled.
The low profile was also a welcome change. I was able to clean under my air hockey table without moving it.
The hose and wand that Miele developed for these S7 uprights is by far better than other uprights. The extra reach gave me the ability
to clean the cobwebs in upper corners of rooms as well as dirt and debris from the top of the window and door frames without tipping the
vacuum. The material used for the hose is durable, flexible and retracts to fit neatly back in place. The hose-lock feature helped to stabilize
the Tango even when I had the hose stretched to its full length.
As a few final positives about this vacuum, the cord length was truly handy. I was able to clean on both floors of my home, all rooms,
from only two outlets. The LED light may not seem to be of particular note, but once you vacuum with it you will notice
the difference. The LED
is bright enough that even with the lights on it still manages to further enhance your visibility. The reinforced handle in the back of the unit
was extremely useful when transporting the Tango from the office to my home. The Tango also features Miele's sealed system and active HEPA
filtration which is ideal for allergy and asthma sufferers. Lastly, the look of this upright is terrific. It has a
very sleek design with a beautiful finish. The Tango is certainly one vacuum I would not want to be stuffed away in my closet.
What I do not like about Miele Tango Vacuum
Quite honestly, there were only three drawbacks I could find with the Tango. First, the Tango, like many uprights that lack a special
edging feature, did not handle edging on carpet as well as some
uprights. On hard flooring the suction was so powerful that this was
not an issue, and overall, this is about as minor as a drawback can be. Like many uprights, the Tango is a little heavier than its canister
counterpart, but the built-in handle made moving it easier. And though it is slightly heavier, it is more stable than comparable uprights and
moves much more freely. My only significant drawback to this model is the price. It may be more than some are willing to
pay for an
upright vacuum cleaner. As with all Miele vacuum cleaners, it is best to think of the Tango as an investment. It will last you ten times
longer than comparable vacuums and save you money over the long
From cleaning ability to appearance, I was thoroughly impressed by every aspect of the Tango. Overall, the features and innovations that Miele has included in
the Tango are all practical and decided improvements upon traditional uprights. I was left with one overall thought. You don't know what
you are missing until you actually try one.
