Summary: I bought this Oreck based on my experience with another Oreck. I was disappointed that this one only had 1 running speed and the on/off btutor was on the base instead of on the handle. That design seems a bit outdated. It cleans well, but if the carpet is a bit long, the small wheels make it not as easy to push. It almost feels as if its not self propelled. Other than those issues, it's a good vacuum.
I love my Oreck XL..lightweight..so easy to use...

Summary: Last summer my old ( 12 years) Oreck XL vacuum handle broke and I thought I'd save some money and bought a Hoover bagless. Big mistake..it was so heavy...hard to push and within 3 months I replaced 2 belts. The payoff was in only a few months it broke..no suction what so ever.. I then ordered my Oreck and like the saying goes.." You get what you pay for". My husband laughed at me because I was so happy vacuuming..it's easy to handle.
