Nice light upright

"I like this Oreck upright vacuum cleaner and would recommend it to others. It is noticeably lighter than many others I looked at, which I appreciate when I have to move it from one level of my house to another.

- The HEPA filter bag traps dirt and allergens and seals shut when removed for hygienic disposal.
- Direct suction path and strong yet efficient motor creates admirable suction that is good enough for pet owners.
- Power head has a dirt strip which helps it clean smooth flooring.
- Very simple and intuitive 2-speed power control.
- This upright is extremely light at only 7.7 Lbs.
- The large wheels on the Magnesium allow this vacuum to glide over all floor types.
- The Magnesium lays virtually flat, allowing the vacuum to easily get around and under low sitting furniture.
- Oreck's Endurolife vacuum belt is designed and constructed to last the lifetime of the vacuum.
- Built to last with a Magnesium frame that is stronger than most steel. Minimal extra parts mean minimal break-downs and parts to replace.
- Respectable 7-year warranty.
- The Magnesium does not offer an integrated hose or attachments for cleaning areas other than floors.
- The HEPA filter bags perform well but because the Magnesium is not a sealed vacuum, the bag is not able to work up to true HEPA efficiency. This vacuum does not have a pre-motor filter. The exhaust filter is the bag that surrounds the HEPA filter bag.
- Power head does not adjust in height and is not well suited for deep pile carpet.
- Power head brush roll cannot be shut off.
The Oreck Magnesium vacuum cleaner was a pleasant surprise for our product testers. While this upright vacuum may not be the best choice for a serious allergy sufferer, it certainly does offer a number of features that most anyone can appreciate. First and foremost, we like that this vacuum cleaner is extremely light and it is very easy to maneuver. However, it does not offer additional attachments or hose and may be better suited for those in need of an easy-to-use second vacuum cleaner. The suction produced by the Magnesium upright is more than adequate for most environments, including those with pets. This vacuum is an excellent choice for someone who wants an upright vacuum but needs one that is very light. We would recommend the Magnesium for homes with low to medium pile carpets and smooth floors which do not require the brush roll to be shut off.
