I really like how light the vacuum is. It has great suction, and does a great job picking up pet hair...even from wood floors. It also has a wider track than the Oreck.

Comment:
The Aerus Fresh Era is a very solid light weight vacuum. Have had Dirt Devil, Oreck, and a Phantom Fury in the past, None of which felt very strong, they were all plastic, very flexible, felt like they would come apart though they didn't fall right away, they did seem to get old quickly. The Aerus really shines well on carpet, especially with pet hair.
