The Oreck Magnesium is an upright vacuum cleaner with premier suction and cleaning power, with dual speeds that will easily remove dirt and debris deep within your rugs and carpets.
This product has an extremely advanced HEPA filter bag that will capture up to 99.97% of the dust particles in the area, which is great for gathering up mold, dust, pollen, and animal dander. If you are someone with allergies, this is definitely a fantastic option.
In addition to being a great choice for rugs and carpets, the Oreck Magnesium can also easily be used on linoleum, hardwood flooring, or tile.
While you will have to buy additional bags for this vacuum cleaner, as it does use them, each and every commercial vacuum from Oreck comes with three additional magnesium HEPA bags to get you started. These will be able to last you quite a while, and save you quite a bit of money upfront.
Now we will get a little more specific when it comes to the Oreck Magnesium specifications.
This vacuum cleaner has a cleaning path of 12 feet, and it weighs around seven pounds, making it extremely lightweight. It also comes with two LED headlights on the front of the machine.
The cord is 30 feet long, which is fairly long for a vacuum cleaner. This allows you to easily vacuum a room clean without constantly having to unplug the machine, and then having to plug it in again to another outlet.
The Oreck Magnesium is a two-speed vacuum, with a HEPA inner bag used for filtration.
One aspect we really like about this particular cleaning tool is its warranty. It has a limited seven-year warranty, so you have some peace of mind when using it during that time frame. If something goes wrong and it needs to be fixed or replaced, you are able to use that warranty for the initial seven years that you own the product.
How it Compares
Now let’s put the Oreck Magnesium up against some of its competitors, and see if it is still standing at the end. There are a huge number of different brands and models to choose from that are comparable in size, quality, or all of the above – it can be hard to choose between them unless you have their features side by side.
The first vacuum cleaner we are going to pit the Oreck Magnesium against is the Dyson DC41 Animal. Both products are highly reputable upright vacuum cleaners from well-loved companies. When compared, the two designs do have a lot of similarities.
First, let’s take a look at what they have in common.
Both vacuum cleaners have HEPA filters, meaning that they are excellent choices for those with pets and/or allergies. These filters are able to easily remove hair, mold, and other allergens from your floors and the air.
They are also both upright vacuums, and have fairly lengthy cords that make it easy to get to all corners of the room while cleaning. On top of that, they are both useful on more than just carpets and rugs – both vacuum cleaners can be used on hard flooring as well.
Now let’s take a look at a few of their differences.
While the Oreck Magnesium requires bags to clean, the Dyson Animal does not. This means that you are saving some money with the Dyson vacuum, as you don’t have to purchase that extra accessory. The Oreck Magnesium also does not come with washable filters, like the Animal does – this adds additional cost to your initial purchase as well.
When it comes to warranties, the Oreck Magnesium has the Dyson Animal beat by a couple of years. Dyson’s standard warranty is a limited five-year warranty, and as we discussed before, Oreck’s is seven.
The Dyson Animal is also able to automatically adjust its height, making it much more convenient for getting to hard to reach places and vacuuming stairs. The Oreck Magnesium will not adjust automatically, so certain areas may be a little more difficult to vacuum.
Our next comparison is going to be between the Oreck Magnesium vacuum cleaner and the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Professional NV356E. Shark is another very popular brand for vacuum cleaners, and is definitely decent competition for the Oreck Magnesium.
Both of these products use HEPA filters, making them equally useful in fighting against allergens in the home. They are both upright vacuum cleaners, and able to clean any floor type in your home.
The Shark Navigator vacuum cleaner does have a few advantages to the Oreck Magnesium, however. This vacuum does not use bags, which will save you some money in the long run, as you will not have to purchase any for the product. You’ll also be saving money on the fact that the filter for the Shark vacuum is washable as well. Their filter is also slightly better at reducing allergens in your home.
The warranty for the Oreck Magnesium is definitely more desirable than the one for the Shark Navigator. As we talked about before, Oreck has a seven-year limited warranty, and Shark has a five-year limited warranty. This provides you with a longer period of time to have the vacuum fixed or replaced for free if anything goes wrong.
Our last comparison is going to be between the Oreck Magnesium and the Hoover U5140900. This is another high-quality upright vacuum cleaner made by a reputable company, and they both use bags to contain the dust they collect.
Both of these vacuum cleaners are made to clean any type of flooring that you have in your home, but the similarities pretty much end there.
The Hoover U5140900 does not use a HEPA filter like the Oreck Magnesium does, but it does have an allergy filter, meaning it will still be useful at removing allergens from your floors and the air in your home.
Hoover does offer, however, a protected bumper to stop you from chipping paint or damaging furniture while you clean. Oreck does not have that feature on the Magnesium model. Also, if you are interested in having your additional vacuum cleaner accessories available on the machine at all times, Hoover has onboard storage space for the additional brushes and tools.
The largest difference between these two vacuum cleaners is their warranty. Hoover only offers a one-year limited warranty against the seven that Oreck offers. This is important to keep in mind while deciding on the vacuum you want to purchase – there is a six-year difference in warranties for these products.
Overall, both vacuum cleaners are of excellent quality and design. Making the choice will really depend on which features you value you the most in a product. If you want to spend less up front, Hoover may be the best choice. If you need a longer warranty, Oreck is the way to go.
Pros and Cons
Now that we have compared the Oreck Magnesium to a few different brands and designs of vacuum cleaners, let’s do a final overview of the pros and cons of this machine.
This product also has one of the best warranties we have seen for a vacuum cleaner – a seven-year limited warranty is definitely a huge positive when purchasing the Oreck Magnesium.
The item comes with three additional bags for the dirt you are collecting, which definitely saves you some money upfront. You will still have to buy additional bags for the vacuum cleaner later on, but this is a nice perk with the purchase to get you started.
The HEPA filter that comes with the Oreck Magnesium is fantastic for removing allergens from the air in your home, making it a great choice for anyone with allergies and/or pets.
This particular model does not come with washable filters, meaning that you will have some additional expenses when they need to be replaced. Also, since this vacuum cleaner require bags, those will have to be purchased additionally as well.
There is likewise no way to store the additional accessories and tools for your vacuum cleaner on the actual machine, which can be inconvenient if they are out of reach when you need them.
We hope this detailed review was helpful in assisting you with finding the perfect vacuum cleaner for your home. It can be difficult, but knowing more about the products can really give you great relief.
