Good looking labor instensive nightmare


Overview I got suckered in by the slick info-mercial. I already had a Shaper Image Quadra I was content with. I thought I would try this unit in another room and see if it was any better. First of all, the unit is much noisier than I ...

Nice smell come out, apparently cleans air well

Hard to clean, spend 45-60 minutes cleaning it

Excellent for Allergy Sufferers!


I have looked for this for over a year and could never find it on epinions. We bought 2 of these, they had a special on them and we received a free stick type of vacuum which I use in our RV.

Worked Immediately, Breathing Is easier

Cleaning the filter is a nightmare, buy replacements

An excellent filter,,does exactly what it is supposed to do.


I've had two Oreck XL professional air purifiers for over a year. They work exactly as advertised. The electrostatic filter traps and holds the impurities the way they are supposed to, and the warning light indicates when the filters need to be...

An excellent product...I highly recommend this unit. The quality is worth the price

I can't find one bad thing to say about these air purifiers

Similar to others not-so-great reviews


Well, maybe I should have read these reviews before I got the unit. Fortunately I got a good deal on this one new from eBay for only $265.

Cleans air? Easy to clean the Truman cell? Easy to use. Small. Quieter than expected

Makes loud pops/cracks, Didn't make air quality difference, retail price fairly

Don't waste your money!


I have allergies and we have a lot of dust in our home. An air purifier seemed like a wise purchase. We purchased the Oreck XL tabletop purifier for our bedroom AND the tower purifier for our den. I liked the idea that the filter could be cleaned and...

None that I can think of

Simply doesn't work, and filters require constant attention

Impossible to Maintain by Owner


This air cleaner works, but is too expensive and cannot be maintained by the owner. It will work only so long before it must be brought in for expensive maintenance work. Just getting something as simple as oiling will cost $65. Why would you build...

Will work for about a year

Expensive maintenance

Do not be fooled by the hype.


To be honest, I was swayed by the Oreck XL Professional Air Purifier infomercials which is the first time that any infomerical has ever compelled me to buy anything. First, I have allergies that aren't bad but simply being able to breathe clean air...

It's a good, if somewhat large, paperweight that can blow air

It just doesn't work, customer service is horrible and it's clearly a rip-off

Bad filter! Great service!


I bought TWO of the Oreck XLs because of an asthmatic child. I had been using regular HEPA filters but thought the expense of the Oreck was worth the 300.00 price difference. Boy was I wrong!!!!

Unheard of Customer Service

Never did what it promised to do 8

Very Very Poor Cleaning from Oreck XL


Ok, I had an older model Sharper Image Quadra purifier, which caused me some throat irritation. I Bought 2 Oreck XL air purifiers because of all the advertising and give-aways and noticed at first cleaning after a week 24/7 on high speed practically no...

After a fair comparison test, I can't find ANY Pros

Simply doesn't clean the air. Very noisy unless fan on even lowest cleaning speed

Not A Bad Purchase


I have had very bad allergies for about 12 years now, and after repeatedly trying every allergy medication in existence, I saw an ad for the Oreck Air Purifier. I'd been doing some research on the Sharper Image purifiers and was not impressed, with the...

Noticeably improved air quality and not a bad price

Cleaning these things is a chore to say the least
