It is an okay vacuum but I will not buy another one. It has a few nice features, but my vacuum I bought 20 years ago (different brand) has held up better and required less maintenance and work than this one. I expected more from an Oreck so I am a bit let down by the product. Maneuverability One of the good features of this vacuum is the fact it is very light weight and moves easily. I can easily get under my living room tables and other smallish spots because of the shape of the vacuum. Ease of Maintenance This is one area where we have had constant issues. It seems like there is always something needing to be done to this vacuum. It either needs a new belt, or a new roller head, a new bag,(I mean the main bag not the dirt bags) or to be cleaned because it's not working correctly. We have spent more on maintenance than the vacuum cost initially. Suction Performance Most of the time the suction is good. I do like the fact it will work on regular floors as well as carpeted. So if you need to run it over a wood flood, tile floor, or laminate it will work well on every surface. Versatility I do not like that it doesn't come with the extensions. If you want to clean around the walls or under the couch you will have to buy the extra little vacuum set to do that. Most vacuums come with all those little pieces where you can attach them easily, but this vacuum does not. Design It is very lightweight and easy to use. It is easy to change the bag and get right back to vacuuming. Durability I have had this vacuum for a number of years but only because we have spent a lot on maintenance. Yes, it has held up and still works, but had we not spent so much on maintenance it would have been in the trash a long time ago.
