If you have plush carpet, you need a vacuum you know can reach down deep to suck up harmful allergens, not to mention pet hair, debris, dust, and dirt that has made its way deep down into the fibers. The LW100 Magnesium by Oreck just might be the perfect vacuum for the job. This is an upright vacuum that’s known for its lightweight design, versatility, and suction power.
This model received plenty of positive feedback for its lightweight design, easy maneuverability, and its innovative side brush design.
Overview and Features
This model is made with magnesium and comes equipped with a dual-speed quick switch and a self-propelled motor.
This model is perfect for bare floors, indoor/outdoor carpet, tiles, and linoleum.
The length of the power cord comes in at thirty feet, so you won’t have to constantly switch from outlet to outlet.
Weighing in at just over seven and a half pounds the Magnesium SP is one of the lightest, most powerful vacuums on the market.
The vacuum is perfect for a wide range of flooring types and can lay almost completely flat, which makes vacuuming under the sofa and other types of furniture a breeze.
The vacuum comes with a HEPA inner bag and an Endurolife belt. Combined, this system can easily capture pet hair, pet dander, debris, mold, and dirt, thanks to the impressive one hundred and two miles per hour of airflow. The filter is said to eliminate over ninety-nine percent of particles in the air.
The issues with most models of vacuums equipped with HEPA filters is that they don’t offer an efficient, clean way to remove bins or bags without leaking the contents of the bag back into the air. This vacuum uses Saniseal, a sealing method which is designed to automatically lock and seal the vacuum bags shut when the user is removing the filter bag from the vacuum.
The Saniseal system is part of the disposable bag’s cardboard collar that works by sealing the bag when it’s removed from the bag dock. The dirt, allergens, and dust that have been vacuumed up will not be able to escape back into the air during a bag change.
For the price, we were disappointed that this model doesn’t come with any attachments, although it does feature the innovative side brush design that will allow you to efficiently remove dust and dirt from baseboards.

The manufacturer made the vacuum’s frame out of magnesium, which not only improves the vacuum’s strength and durability, it works to significantly reduce the vacuum’s weight. Inside, small motors drive the roller brush and fan, allowing the vacuum to sit much closer to the ground in order to pick up tiny particles more efficiently
The vacuum is equipped with side brushes that are designed to make cleaning edges and baseboards easy.
The quick switch feature will allow the user to use the perfect power level depending on surface type. Now you can adjust the brush roll speed to match the floor type. Low speed is designed for delicate rugs and hard surfaces, while high speed is perfect for thick carpeting.
Do you constantly have to remove dog hair from clothes? Vacuuming daily can help to cut back on the amount of hair that ends up on your clothing, drapes, and furniture.
This lightweight, easy to use, multi-floor upright was designed with efficiency and power in mind. The lay flat capability combined with the lightweight design makes vacuuming efficient and powerful.
The quick switch feature will allow you to adjust the vacuum, based on floor type, so you can be sure the vacuum is using the right amount of power needed to efficiently get rid of dirt for good. The vacuum’s direct suction design makes the vacuum lighter and more versatile, able to sit closer to the floor for faster brush rolls speeds, and more suction power.
Additionally, the vacuum’s belt is designed to last longer and works to protect the motor from jams.
The vacuum bags and their unique sealing system will prevent the contents of the bag from getting all over the floor and into the air. The filter consists of a five-layer design that can capture over ninety-nine percent of allergens including pet dander, mold, and dust, down to 0.3 microns.
While the manufacturer seems to have thought of everything in terms of more efficient cleaning power and HEPA vacuum bag design, they have totally failed to provide a way for the user to eliminate dirt, pet hair, debris, and allergens from other surfaces such as furniture and drapes. This model does not come with any attachments whatsoever. If you’re a pet owner and you’re in search of a vacuum that can help you tackle your dog hair problem, then this model certainly isn’t it. The Hoover WindTunnel vacuum is one of the LW100’s top competitors. It comes loaded with some great attachments that can help you manage your pet hair problem, and it’s available for just a fraction of the price.
