Some good some bad
I bought my Oreck about 6 months ago and use it in my bedroom to help with dust allergies. I do think it has helped with my stuffiness at night, but I agree with the comment that the dust is not reduced. I find dust all around the air purifier and on top of it-even though I dust every day in my bedroom. I clean my Oreck every 4 weeks or so or it begins to spark.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My solution to filter scarcity
I've been using the Oreck for two years now and am generally happy with it. I too waited for a while for the filters to show up on the TSC website.I saw that a Canadian hardware chain sold Oreck products but the filters were always sold out. Regardless the price was ridiculous for a simple charcoal filter.I noticed that the hardware chain also sells activated charcoal filters for furnace vents and decided to try it out. You have to do some cutting to get it to the right size for the Oreck and its a bit messy, but it does the job. I work it in behind the Oreck charcoal filter to make sure it doesn't contact any electrical parts. I've been using them for almost a year now without a problem and it's really inexpensive compared to the plastic encased alternative.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

So when you buy an ORECK, the carbon filters that are supposed to be changed every 6 months to a year are never available on the Shopping Channel and have to be ordered from the STATES. I have mentioned this many times but STILL no carbon filters if you have already bought this. Not happy with this!!!!!!!!!!!! as I do most of my shopping here.
Not what it says about it

I purchased this air cleaner thinking I would likely need another after purchase of the ORECK Ionic Pro Air Cleaner model for my living room. Either I have a defective one or I am way off with my decision to have purchased this table top model. After running it for a few months I do notice that the intake vent is quite dusty and the filter is also quite dusty which should mean the dirty air is heading in to get cleaned. The cell appears to be doing its job but the red indicator light stays on even after cleaning. I look at the rear vents that are to direct the clean air back into the room and THEY ARE VERY DIRTY as are the front intake ones! That dirty air is being sent back into the room and I have not noticed any improvement in the amount of dust in my other room as suggested in the commercials. Bottom line is I will not suggest this purchase and would definitely not recommend anyone spend the money on this table top model.

Shopping Channel, Oreck support?
We like the air purifier; however, six months in, we still haven't received the filters?
Not sure why my review would be so different from the others. I purchased the air cleaner thinking I would likely get another. But, either I have a defective one or I am way off with my expectations. After running it for a few weeks I do notice that the intake vent is quite dusty, and the first filter is also quite dusty which should mean the dirty air is heading in to get cleaned. The cell also seems to collect a lot of pollutants. This all sounds great until I look at the vents that are to direct the clean air back into the room and THEY ARE JUST AS DIRTY as the intake ones! What can this mean? That dirty air is being sent back into the room? And the table the device sits on get soooooo dusty. I have not noticed any improvement in the amount of dust in the room as suggested on the show. Bottom line I will not purchase another and would definitely not recommend anyone spend the money on it. Sorry.

I find this air purifier a necessity for many reasons in the house,...for cooking, pets, air quality, etc. etc. and find a big difference if not turned on (during cleaning) and cannot wait to have it circulate the air again. I do not wait for the light to display for cleaning purposes, as I usually clean the cell twice a month or more. I had to call Oreck concerning the second purifier filter that was to be sent out when this model was purchased, and they told me that they were backordered, but would be sending them out the first week of April. Since I have not received it as yet, will have to call them back as they suggested. this is the 3rd air purifier I have purchased and will not be without them. I have this model set up in the kitchen which serves my purposes.
wow great product
i have wanted one of these for years and thrilled withh the way i performs. i smoke and have small dog and it does a tremendous job but like the others i wish i had bought sooner.
