Miele S514 Solaris Canister Vacuum Cleaner
The Miele S514 Direct Connect vacuum cleaner offers amazing versatility and value for its reasonable price; it's the least expensive of Miele's premium vacuum cleaners. With a powerbrush so strong that you'll hear it thumping the carpet, the Miele S514 Direct Connect will help you efficiently clean and allergy-proof your home. While the electrostatically charged Super Air Clean Filter captures far more allergens than the average vacuum cleaner, the optional HEPA filter transforms the Miele S514 Direct Connect into a HEPA air purifier on wheels. Miele vacuum cleaners not only clean your floors, but they also clean the air you breathe.

Miele Solaris S514 Vacuum Cleaners
The S514 Direct Connect vacuum cleaner is part of Mieles S500 series. This mango red vacuum from Miele is a sealed canister vacuum with an electro-brush attachment. The dial power controls are easy to use and located on the canister body. You can upgrade to an Active HEPA filter, and you can upgrade to any air driven or power driven floor tool.
What I like about the Solaris
This is a powerful vacuum for deep cleaning and restoring low to medium pile carpeting. The SEB 217-2 Powerbrush is an electrically driven carpet tool with a 10 inch wide brush. It has a swivel neck for excellent maneuverability. The Powerbrush is connected to an electric cord running through the telescopic wand.
The S514 also comes with a blower capacity. The blower helps clean out awkward corners of dust and debris before vacuuming. All you have to do is remove the filter and insert the hose into the blower socket inside the canister.
In addition to these features, the S514 Direct Connect comes standard with everything that makes Miele vacuums unique. A durable ABS plastic shell, self-winding cord, self-sealing bags, a hygienic dust cover to prevent dust from escaping the canister, a rubber bumper to protect your furniture, three mini-attachments stored on-board, ultra quiet operation, smooth movement, seven year motor warranty, and long life span make Miele well worth every penny.
What I do not like about the Solaris
There are two minor drawbacks of the S514. The vacuum does not come standard with an Active HEPA filter. The filter is optional. Secondly, the S514 comes with an older version of the Miele ergonomic handle. You cannot control power from the handle assembly.
In summary, the S514 Direct Connect vacuum cleaner is a very powerful vacuum cleaner with a reasonable price. It is the least expensive of Miele's premium vacuum cleaners. You are able to make many upgrades and additions as you grow into the vacuum and discover what the specific vacuuming needs are in your home.
