  • Oreck the Champion of CLEAN CARPETS!

    Dec 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: light weight, easy to use and tote to up the stairs, durable, reliable and quiet
    Cons: Doesn't get corners very good, but that is where my ORECK canister come in.

    Summary: Vacuuming has always been a job that I hate. That is until last year when I bought an Oreck 2600 XL Vacuum. You see I spent a lot of time vacuuming up pet hair, a little mess of this here and a bigger mess of that there. I pulled a heavy vac up and ... read more

  • Doesn't live up to the hype

    Aug 15, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light, easy to use
    Cons: Badly designed, hard to clean, doesn't last as long as they advertise.

    Summary: My wife talked me into buying this after she couldn't manage the heavy vacuum anymore due to arthritis. We used it (and it's companion canister) almost exclusively for about three years. Yes, it's light, and is actually pretty well made, but very badly ... read more

  • 8 pounds of machine....a real KILLER!

    Mar 3, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Absolutely none.
    Cons: Absolutely everything.

    Summary: It's a good thing this vacuum weighs only 8 pounds because to move it from one place to another when it's not turned on requires actually lifting it and carrying it from one place to another. It does a good job on the areas of my home where there is ... read more

  • Oreck rocks

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light, durable, cleans well, great dealer support.
    Cons: Handle problem, above-average price, no tools caddy.

    Summary: Small, lightweight, easy to manage around corners and under furnishings. Small canister goes wherever I need to without bulk, and it's powerful enough to take care of anything from nails to cat litter without a hassle. I admit it's a little on the ... read more

    Cons: Can't deal with pet hair Difficult to push on berber carpet Too expensive

    Summary: - I purchased the Oreck XL in early September 2001 for $454.00. - I bought the XL to replace a 10-yr old Hoover 17-amp upright (that is now held together by duct tape and still functions better than the XL!) - I love the canister, it's ... read more

  • This Vacuum SUCKS!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's light, and for $10.00 you can buy fragrance tablets for the vacuum bag.
    Cons: The belts are difficult to access, and the bearings jam quickly with pet hair.

    Summary: I bought this vacuum because I thought it would be a good quality replacement for my ancient Singer vacuum. After owning it for only 2 years, it has been in the shop three different times. The last time I took it is was because smelly black smoke was ... read more

    Pros: Lightweight.
    Cons: Doesn't seem to pick anything up.

    Summary: In my housecleaning business we are sometimes asked to use the customers vacuum which is why I am forced to use an Oreck once or twice a month. I don't own one of these machines myself and I wouldn't get one if I was paid to use it. The owner of the ... read more

    Mar 5, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great advertising, light weight, lays flat for underneath cleaning, small size for storage.
    Cons: Expensive, expensive hard-to-find bags, no place to hold cord, mediocre performance and limited durability.

    Summary: The advertising is engaging, enough to convince me to spend the extra dollars required to own an Oreck. How exciting to receive it and find that I really could pick it up with one finger! The "free" hand vac worked great, too!The Oreck upright ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: When you push it over crumbs on the floor, they disappear
    Cons: It's no fun to listen to when you're trying to watch television.

    Summary: The Oreck XL's a fine machine. Must be, my wife has pretty much left me for it. This vacuum has turned her into some kind of crazy person. Vacuum, Vacuum, Vacuum. That's all this lady does anymore. She shovels by the handful Cheez-It crackers to our ... read more

    Pros: Light, so it will be easy to throw out.
    Cons: Cleans poorly, doesn't work well if anything is in the bag (let alone full), overpriced

    Summary: We needed a vacuum that would be good enough at cleaning up dog fur, etc., to help our allergies. I made the mistake of falling for the hype in the Oreck commercials. This machine is overpriced and doesn't clean well. They did a whole show ... read more

    Pros: Lightweight
    Cons: Doesn't get corners, expensive to reorder bags.

    Summary: My husband had this vacuum when we got married, and I quickly chose it over my Hoover upright that I had been using. As a petite woman, I had a hard time going up and down the stairs with my old vacuum. The Oreck is so light, it's a dream. ... read more

  • Well, it sucks. And sometimes it actually vacuums.

    Jul 14, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight and handle drops absolutely flat to the floor; helpful for vacuuming under furniture.
    Cons: If you own any pets that actually have hair, keep a Phillips screwdriver handy.

    Summary: For a few years I listened to the commercials by David Oreck about his "8-pound Oreck XL!" and finally decided to break the bank and to buy one. This thing ain't cheap, folks, but I figured, since all the conservative talk shows, which I listen ... read more

    Pros: The ads are cute
    Cons: It's expensive and noisy and the bags are hard to find

    Summary: Oreck Deluxe Vacuum XL2600 Features: Well, it has a really long cord. That’s about the only feature I can think of. Really, this vacuum is quite short of features. It has a cord, it has a bag, it makes noise. That’s ... read more

  • Stay away from this product and company

    Jun 20, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light
    Cons: Cheaply made, mediocre performance, takes forever to get your money back from the company

    Summary: The only thing good I think I can say about this product is that it is light - unfortunately I believe most of the rest of the things touted about this product are a result of slick marketing. And once you take the "Oreck Challenge" and return the ... read more

    Pros: Free "Buster B", lightweight, works well on VERY short piled carpet , bag opening.
    Cons: PRICE (of vacuum, AND bags), hard to find bags, no onboard attachments, poor performance

    Summary: My $400 Oreck vacuum.... NEVER again. What a waste. I didn't actually buy this vacuum, it belonged to my parents, that was until they were sick of having dirty carpet, and they bought a Eureka. I bought it from them for $100, considering it ... read more

    Cons: too expensive, not as good as they claim to be, very loud

    Summary: I purchased this vacuum last year. I wanted to buy a good vacuum for everyday usage. It's a light weight as it said to be. Also, very good when first used. A year later, it's not good anymore. They have ten years warrantee, but when you read ... read more

    Cons: doesn't clean very well, expensive

    Summary: We've had our Oreck XL2600 for about 3 years now. It came with the little canister vac that you sling on your shoulder, as well as a bunch of little attachments for the canister vac. I don't know how much it cost because it was a gift, but I'll guess ... read more
