The Oreck Touch is an exceptional vacuum that left us all highly impressed. It's an excellent choice for anyone looking to upgrade to a high-end machine.
The re-invented Oreck is as trusty as ever, and powerful enough to compete with top-of-the-line vacuums.
Take a quick spin with one of our favorite upright vacuum cleaners.
With decent performance and a price of just $200, this vacuum might make sense for value-minded minimalists, but you'll need to look elsewhere for something more modern or feature-rich.
If your cleaning needs are limited to dust and other small stuff, this Samsung is stellar, but plenty of other uprights deliver better performance and usability for less.
Dyson's DC59 competes well enough as a high-end stick vac, but poor battery life and a tendency to clog with large particles hold the DC59 Motorhead back from replacing your full-size upright.
The DC41's design disappointed us, and the DC65's isn't any better. Despite the strong performance scores, this pricey Dyson is still difficult to recommend.
Feast your eyes on these upright vacuum cleaners. Each one brings unique strengths to the, uh, carpet, but I think there's a general consensus on one thing: Dyson vacuums may look neat, but they certainly aren't the be-all and end-all.
Contrary to its appearance as a real bargain, usability issues and subpar cleaning performance mar this Dirt Devil.
You don't need to pay $649 to own a vacuum that cleans at this level, and if you are paying that much, you deserve a machine with a better design than this.
