Summary: 10/10 - box to use- put it together in about 2 minutes. 5/10 quality of materials. SO DISAPPOINTED. Cheaply made, I am afraid it will break with any amount of strenuous use. I paid almost $200 for this and expected MUCH MORE from an Oreck.
Summary: This is our 2nd Oreck - the first one was 30 plus years old and had a few problems. The new one is just as sturdy and well built as the first one. It has much more suction and works great. We could not be happier.
Summary: I love it .It is light,with one hand I pick it up and take it upstairs or downstairs,goes in narrow places and under most things,picks up real well. It is a little loud but not overly loud , does well on bare floors
Summary: best vacuum ever made. light and easy to use. Some complain about how loud it is. But you cannot move that much air and do that good of a job without a little noise. I have never seen a quiet vacuum that worked well.
