Buy the Miele Triflex HX1 if you have bare floors such as hardwood, ceramic, laminate and tile, as well as Area rugs, wall-to-wall carpets and pet hair. Miele Triflex HX1 is Miels's entry model cordless, bagless stick vacuum cleaner. It's a bit unfair to refer to this as the entry-level model since It is exactly the same as the other two models as far as suction, performance, warranty, capacity and functionality, except it only comes with one battery and it is missing the headlamp on the powerhead....
The most impressive feature of the Miele Triflex HX1 is its versatility in the type of configuration you can use it in. Most cordless stick vacuum cleaners made and sold are essentially the same design. The motor unit and the dust bin are positioned at the top of the vacuum. This is called the "Reach" configuration. The advantage of this design is that it allows you to reach harder to reach places easily. There are a couple of problems with this design, However. One is that they tend to be very Top-Heavy. That means a lot of weight on your hands and shoulders, especially if you use the vacuum for any length of time longer than a few minutes. The other problem with the "Reach" design is that the vacuum can not stand independently. It either has to be attached to its charging station or lean against a wall or furniture piece.
Another design used for cordless, stick vacuum cleaners places the motor unit and the dust bin lower on the wand. Some models have had great success with this model. It reduces the weight placed on your hand and shoulders by 50%. The problem is that up until now, you had to choose between one of these two configurations. Should you go for a standard "Reach" configuration or a "Comfort" configuration? Well, with Miele Triflex HX1, you get both of these configurations in one model. Use the Triflex HX1 in the reach configuration for quick pick-ups around the kitchen table and the comfort configuration for vacuuming your whole house. There is also the third configuration, which is called the "handheld" configuration. This configuration is perfect for cleaning above-floor surfaces such as your countertops, baseboards and staircases.
