I bought the Oreck Bagged vacuum after reading some positive reviews about it when I was researching vacuum cleaners. I was very disappointed with the performance of this vacuum. Maneuverability The Oreck Vacuum Cleaner is light and easy to push but it does not have a swiveling head which makes maneuvering extremely difficult. I also found that it was hard to vacuum under some tables and entertainment centers due to the size and shape of the vacuum. Ease of Maintenance The Oreck vacuum is relatively easy to maintain. The bags are accessible and easy to install but I prefer a bag less vacuum. Suction Performance I was not overly impressed with the suction power of the Oreck Vacuum. In fact after complaining about the power of the Oreck; I was told that the motor on this vacuum is actually the same size and power of a sewing machine motor. The Oreck vacuum is relatively quiet when running, perhaps that is due to its small motor. I did notice that the vacuum did not pick up dog hair very well. Design The design of this vacuum is very simplistic. The head of the vacuum is small which makes vacuuming over large areas difficult. It is a very basic machine with not very many added features. Durability I can't speak to the long term durability of the Oreck vacuum because I returned it after only using it a few times. It honestly seemed very cheaply made and designed. I purchased a bag less vacuum after returning the Oreck and I would never purchase another bagged vacuum again.
