Observations about the Oreck XL Insight
In the course of researching the Oreck Insight, we discovered details that should be included in the Oreck Insight vacuum review that are neither clear pros nor cons but would probably be appreciated by readers.
You need to check the handle for signs of overheating after a period of over-use. Running it for hours can cause the wires in the handle to overheat.
The cleaning head is small. This means it can fit in rather narrow spaces without having to break out the attachments. On the other hand, it may mean making many more passes to clean the room.
The Oreck XL Insight vacuum has a rather low head, so it can get under many couches and coffee tables. However, it can’t lay flat to vacuum more than a few inches under a bed. In contrast, the Oreck Magnesium can lay flat to get these areas and more.
The side brushes that do a good job along baseboards leave depressed lines along the carpet as you vacuum. This is a cosmetic issue.
Oreck vacuums have a five year limited warranty. And unlike some companies, they actually honor it. However, the warranty may be limited if you buy the Oreck vacuum that is a reconditioned model.
