Okay, I've needed a new vacuum since... well, since forever! When we got married, I moved in with my husband and used the vacuum he had since... since god knows when. Anyway, don't get me wrong, it's a good vacuum, Hoover brand and everything. It's just *SO HEAVY*!!! It wasn't such a big deal in our condo but now it is! Specially as my son gets older and makes more of a mess each day. Doing the stairs is such a pain, I just make my husband do it. And since we carpetted the basement, I suppose I should be vacuuming down there too huh? (lol, well, I haven't)..
So I've been in the market for a new one forever now... I had two suggested to me.. The Dyson Ball and the Oreck.
In the end, I think I'm going with Oreck because:
1. It's so lightweight!! 8 or 9 pounds! That is my main selling point!
2. It's a lot more affordable..
3. They use them in hotels so they must be effective.
Anyone out there with an Oreck care to vouch for it??? Or, God forbid, hate theirs?? Please speak soon because I plan on buying one in the next few weeks. I'm thinking of getting the Classic since the only difference between it and the better models are: the length of the warranty, the handle, and the PRICE!
