We bought this as a replacement for a Dyson Allfloors, the second Dyson of the same model we owned, the Dyson as time went by lost suction despite taking it apart every week and washing its parts.
The Miele was a revelation the first time we used it, very quiet and very powerful, we have three springers that shed a lot of hair, in no time the carpets were hair free for the first time in years, in the past we've had to resort to getting down on our hands and knees with a rubber glove to get most of the hair up, the Miele did it with the minimum of effort.
The bags are relatively expensive, but balanced with a lot less time to do the job I think the trade off is a worth it, I've been pulling out the the loose dog hair through the hole in the bag to make them last a little longer, there appears to be no detrimental effect, and because the filters to the machine can be changed frequently I wouldn't think any damage would be done any way.
