Miele Triflex HX1
Hey everybody and welcome. Today, i’m evaluating another extremely asked for, cordless vacuum, the Miele Triflex HX1.
I had a lot of enjoyable testing it out today and i believe there’s some truly cool developments and unexpected specifications with the HX1 that i’m thrilled to enter so links in the description to everything, i’ll discuss and let’s get going.
Let’s go through the fundamentals: the Miele Triflex HX1 is a premium, cordless vacuum, which comes in a range of price points. There is the regular HX1 like i have, which can be found in a couple different colors for the very same cost.
Then you have the Miele Triflex HX1 feline and canine, which has led lights on the flooring head and lastly, the Triflex HX1 pro, which has the led floor head along with one extra battery. Because of the 3 different methods it can be configured, it gets the name tri-flex.
You can use it in handheld mode for above floor cleansing.
You can use it in the standard configuration which most cordless vacuums utilize with the handle linked to the stick which is connected to the floor head or you can use it in without a doubt my favorite method, which is by linking the primary base straight to the cleaner Head and then linking the stick to the handle.
The factor i like this a lot is that primary as regular vacuum audiences know i’m constantly griping about regular, stick vacuums and how they put excessive weight on your lower arm and the Miele Triflex HX1 fixes this problem.
By just putting a very little quantity of weight on your arm in this configuration, it also implies that it can stand on its own for storage or breaks.
I likewise believe it carries out better, as well as there’s more weight, pushing down on the brush head and there’s less of a range for the air to travel, and i did determine a small increase in power in this configuration compared to the standard stick setup it wasn’t much but it existed.
It’s a quite huge development and i wouldn’t be shocked if other producers start copying the design proceeding to the test and review part and i’ll do this in a normal advantages and disadvantages format. I believe my preferred part of the HX1 was the way that it handled its swivel was nice and smooth the grip on the deal with felt significantly excellent.
In my hand, which is something i can’t ever keep in mind commenting on before and when it’s in its lightweight setup the one i mentioned previously, it’s pretty much as good as it gets in terms of cordless vacuum ergonomics.
Veteran fans of Miele Triflex HX1 will enjoy that it has exceptional purification, which is seen on much of Mieles other vacuums, and it did pass the particle filtering test with no boost in the 2.3 micron particles from the baseline, which is good.
It had actually great power, which i step in a range of methods. For instance, the air flow was well above average in its high power setting, and truly just the Dyson and a few others remain in that area of power.
It was specifically good in its low power setting too, where i measured it at 35 cfm at the head, which is more powerful than the Dyson in their low power setting, which will come up once again later on. Interestingly, in the conventional sealed suction test at the base.
It was below average, but in the new unsealed or functional suction test, which i did a video on last week. It was again right up there with the Dyson on high power and better than the Dyson on low power.
It did better than average, with the crevice pickup test, because of that excellent seal which good suction. It also did good with deep cleansing, carpets scoring a 98 on high power and a 92 on low power, which are both multitudes.
Though sort of anticipated for a vacuum in this price variety, its cleaner head was a lower profile with multiple, smaller gates and its brush had the ability to be gotten rid of for simple cleaning, which is a nice touch. That power translated to a terrific pickup on hard floors and carpet, at least with fine and smaller particles.
One huge pro on the Miele Triflex HX1 is the battery. It has a 2500 amp battery, which is removable, so you can purchase more if you require to or quickly replace it, which is a feature i actually like, but the battery life is excellent.
Naturally they say it can get 60 minutes of run time like lots of other vacuum business, however that’s simply in portable mode and in low power, which is not really useful, however the real life battery life numbers are quite considerable.
They say it can get 30 minutes on low power, with the head connected and 17 minutes on high power with the head attached, which is excellent because it’s common to see vacuums with this amount of air flow have much shorter, max power battery life numbers and 30 Minutes on low power is likewise truly excellent.
When you keep in mind just how much more power the Miele Triflex HX1 had on low power than its rivals, i’m not going to say it has the very best battery performance out there, but it’s definitely well above average. The final professional i’ll point out is that i liked the docking station you can mount it on a wall and store the 3 consisted of tools on it too.
Before i get to the unfavorable things, i wanted to point out a couple simply neutral items. Its noise level, which i evaluated on difficult floors and carpet on high power, was pretty much exactly typical at 70 and 71 decibels respectively.
Its tool set a cleaning brush a crevice tool and an upholstery tool were simply about average. I believed the cleaner head was a bit limiting for this rate variety.
While it benefited great debris, it was really low profiled and it’s snow, plowed cheerio-sized debris on tough floors and carpet, which isn’t very good.
Numerous vacuums in this rate variety provide some kind of settlement. If that’s the case, whether it’s a second soft roller in the plan or when it comes to the Dyson, a head with adjustable gates, it’s not that huge an offer if you won’t be coming across bigger debris at all, but it will slow you down quite a bit.
If you do, the 2nd thing was that it had a basic roller which wasn’t very good for hair wrap at all. I checked it with one gram of 7 inch and 1 gram of 14 inch hair.
It was pretty bad actually second-rate, at least in the cordless vacuum world, where anti-tangle brushes are beginning to end up being more common, at least with premium cordless vacuums.
Its dust band was, i believe, needlessly complicated. There were like four actions to empty the bin and it was a little clunky to handle and off. I really didn’t see the advantage of this distinct design, though i could be missing something.
Finally, my basic nitpick is the cost. I feel that it’s a bit expensive. Personally, i think for lovers of Miele, they will not mind paying the premium, but i would have liked to see a little more for the cost.
That being said, Miele Triflex HX1 is a fantastic cordless vacuum with top of the line, performance, features and specifications, as well as big time innovations that need to make a big impact on the market.
