The Oreck Signature II vacuum is a an upright model, which is actually just a redesign of the original. The exterior is actually quite attractive, so good job on that. In this review of the Oreck Signature II vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over the strengths and weaknesses of this model, then decide if it’s worth the $230 asking price. Here’s a rundown of the features you’ll get on this unit: fingertip controls of the brush roll, a 30 ft power cord, height adjustments, dual-edge cleaning, pet hair pick up, a headlight, an 8 quart capacity bag, and a 10 inch cleaning path. I also like the fact that this vacuum comes with a few extra replacement bags. Like most models from this manufacturer this model is super light – just 9 lbs.
OK, onto the negative aspects of the Oreck Signature II vacuum cleaner. I think the 10 inch cleaning path is pretty narrow, especially for larger rooms. As with most models from this manufacturer, this unit does not come with a lot of extra features. For instance, this model does not come with an extension wand (although, the Plus version does). And while I’m glad it comes with some replacement bags, it will eventually cost a good amount of money to buy the bags. Lastly, while I can appreciate a good solid vacuum, I think the Oreck Signature II is just a little bit overpriced. Don’t get me wrong though, I think this model is great. It’s just missing a couple things I would have liked and the price is a little high. Overall, I’m giving it a 4 / 5 star rating.
