  • Happy "Anniversary Oreck" XL2, Happier house cleaning for me

    Jun 29, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light weight, bags easy to change, great warranty, cleans great, scented tabs, durable
    Cons: priced higher than most upright vacuums

    Summary: My parents purchased my first upright vacuum as a wedding present. It was one of those Wal-Mart specials I suppose. Needless to say as long as I owned it vacuuming was quite a nightmare...not to say that it's something I really enjoy now either, but a ... read more

    Pros: Excellent power ...Light
    Cons: Not as durable as it should be for the price

    Summary: I have an Oreck XL2...I bought this vacuum on line in 2003..it came with a handheld vacuum and an iron. I have to say the vacuum part of this machine is truly all it is advertised to be. The reason for my but is the quality is just OK. I ... read more

  • Oreck XL...should stand for Extra Large Head!!!

    Apr 12, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Picks up pet hair well. Very good hypo-allergenic bags.
    Cons: Profile of head is to large. VERY LOUD! Expensive.

    Summary: For years I've seen the magazine ads and infomercials showing a lightweight, upright vacuum that seemed terrific. I had always been temped to try one...but the price always stopped me. Finally, when it was time for a new vacuum, I gave in to the ... read more

  • I'll never use another brand

    Apr 10, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great for pet hair.
    Lightweight.
    Great warranty with free yearly tune-ups.
    Cons: It is an investment.

    Summary: While I was in graduate school I found myself in need of a vacuum cleaner. Since I was living on a graduate student's salary, I just couldn't invest in anything more than a $70 Dirt Devil. It was heavy and cumbersome to use and I found I was replacing ... read more

  • This lousy vacuum cleaner is a repair shop's dream!

    Dec 1, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light
    Cons: Breaks constantly, always burning up belts, no help from Oreck.

    Summary: Like many of the other reviewers, I was conned by Oreck's very creative advertising. Unfortunately, this is simply a lousy vacuum cleaner. When we first got it, I was very impressed by its light weight. We have a two story house, and it was great ... read more

  • It's a Mean Cleaning Machine

    Oct 1, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It is a "system" for cleaning; not just a vacuum.
    Cons: It doesn't have much in the way of styling.

    Summary: I got tired of having a commercial rug cleaning company come into our home at about $200-$300 a visit every six months. We had a vacuum cleaner that we never used. Even with this "professional cleaning" the areas that soiled easily came back in about two ... read more

  • Takes a beating and keeps on cleaning

    Aug 25, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Effective on carpets/floors, very good at picking up pet hair, lightweight, long cord, durable construction
    Cons: Price, belt durability, small bags in canister vac, potential difficulty in obtaining bags and parts

    Summary: I purchased the Oreck XL2 in January 2003 after my old $80 Hoover "grad school special" could no longer handle the rigors of cleaning several rooms from pets and general foot traffic in a new house. I wanted a very good cleaner that was lightweight, ... read more

  • Pricey, Light Weight, & Not So Great!

    Apr 18, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight
    Cons: Terrible at picking up dog hair or small, light objects.

    Summary: We have three children and two dogs. The dogs are short haired. We had a Hoover that seemed to do a pretty good job of picking things up, including the dog hair. We tried to get our kids to help with the vacuuming chores but they had a hard time ... read more

    Mar 23, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very easy to use, lightweight, long cord, gets the dirt up, fluffs carpets
    Cons: Expensive!

    Summary: I'm updating this to respond to some comments - thanks to everyone for those. This is the closest category I can find to place this review, but there is no mistake that this is the Oreck XL21 - it is very new and only in the Oreck stores right now. It ... read more

  • Vacuuming is easy - how can this be???

    Dec 24, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light, powerful, high-quality materials, well-engineered.
    Cons: I would have to try hard to think of a con.

    Summary: I'll preface this by saying that I've never been a vacuum connoisseur. I usually head to the local department store, grab the first Eureka or Hoover that I see and off I go until I break it and then I buy another. I never thought of buying a $500.00 ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light-weight, fits in tight spaces, two speeds, excellent warranty
    Cons: Pricey, very creative marketing techniques

    Summary: I'm reviewing the Oreck XL Ultra Two-Speed Model: XL3900H2B which is now black in color. Our previous vacuum was a no frills 12amp Kenmore, which was simply falling apart from years of use and abuse. Our main criteria was a bagged vacuum. ... read more

    Pros: About the only good thing about this unit is its weight. 
    Cons: No suck, no vacuum, not tools.  Have to buy a handheld.

    Summary: We were led to believe the Oreck XL2 ($500) special, with no external hose, or crevice tools was a superior unit to Dyson, or all the other vacuums on the market at that price or otherwise.  The only area the Oreck excels in is weight, however ... read more

    Pros: Light Weight
    Cons: expensive does not pick up pet hair!!

    Summary: I have 3 dogs and I noticed my Oreck does not pick up the hair hardly at all. I love the Oreck because of the light weight. I kept trying to convience myself that it was because I have berber carpet that the dog hair would not come out. After having a ... read more

  • Oreck XL2 - Not as advertised

    Pros: Lightweight, easy to change bags, fragrance tabs.
    Cons: Doesn't perform as advertised. Cannot easily suck up lint and fuzz or dog hairs.

    Summary: I purchased this vacuum after surgery because I needed a lightweight model. It's light, but doesn't pick up fuzzes and threads off of a rug. I find I have to bend over and pick up the fuzzes by hand before the vacuum will suck them up. It works OK on ... read more

    Pros: It's very light and when thrown it goes really far!!!!
    Cons: A good candidate for the junk man. Flimsy design, poor construction.

    Summary: The power cord had no strain relief collar, it is now unattached from the inside connections causing vacuum to go on and off. Guess what they put non-consumer accessible screws on the handle!! You can get it open but it needs to go to the rip-off ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: The list too long to write - see body content.

    Summary: After using a cheap Panasonic vacuum for almost 20 years, I thought I'd splurge and spend $350 on a quality Oreck vacuum cleaner. Must be good, I thought since it even lifts up a bowling ball!!! Well, I'd wished I'd read this website first. I have used ... read more

    Pros: can't find any
    Cons: too expensive and breaks down all the time.won't pick up anything, belts keep breaking

    Summary: Save your 300.and buy a vaccum that actually works and doesn't spend all its time in the repair shop! I have had my oreck xl ultra for 1 year and most of that its been back at orecks repair shop being fixed!. The motor burned up after 5 months and the ... read more

    Pros: lightweight
    Cons: It just doesn't suck up well at all.

    Summary: Like others, we thought we'd put out the money to get a really good vacuum cleaner. It is horrible...it doesn't pick up well. Every one in my family who comes to visit says the same thing. Don't even consider the name Oreck for anything! The cord is ... read more
