I don't know much about the Oreck, but I have used a Miele at a client's house (I clean houses), and I sincerely don't like it. It's heavy and hard to move around. It's very difficult to do stairs with. And it overheats fairly quickly so you have to wait to finish until it cools down. At my house, we have a $40... More

I had an Oreck and gave it away; it was useless. I bought a Eureka, which I like. I don't know anything about Miele.

Both are about $300-$500. Miele is vary well known becasue of their of their canisters. I have an Oreck upright, which people know of, not vary much canisters, and the oreck does a great job. But, Miele also can clean wood easyly, not oreck. I whould get a Miele.
