This little wonder is great. In seconds it had my pants looking like new. They always seem to pill around the knees and this fabric shaver made short order of them. In a few minutes I also had a sweater looking new. By using the adapter, rather then batteries, it is very light weight and the cord is quite long so I didn't need an extention. I would highly recommend this item.

I was so happy to find a shaver that had an electrical plug because I was getting tired of recharging my batteries all the time. I was also happy that it was from Oreck since they have a good name.

Too bad I am so disappointed with the shaver. I have tried it on several items and it is a hit-miss. Sometimes it works okay and sometimes it fails miserably. I tried it on a sweater and it didn't do anything. I tried it on my yoga pants and it did nothing also. The plastic area where it should have the shaven fuzz is empty.

They must have known that people would want to use this on sweaters?! Didn't they even think to test it on thicker fabrics?

I guess I will have to continue to use my battery-eating cheap shaver I bought at Target...

I was skeptical at first but I needed something to help remove pills
from a few shirts and bed sheets. This product wasn't too expensive so
I figured I couldn't lose much.

Well getting it and tyring it was a suprise it actually works. Not like
night and day in one pass but with a few passes it really picked up most
if not all of the pills.

I'd say its a pretty good deal.

I am disappointed with this product. I make accessories from felted wool, and needed a bigger shaver that did not eat up batteries to remove the excess fibers after the felting process is complete. This shaver is pretty weak for its size. It also seems to stop shaving when the least bit of fibers accumulate in the blades. Then you have to stop, remover the blade cover, clean the blades, put the cover back on and start again. I'm not talking about huge globs of wool fibers, just a bit. Very frustrating if you are doing a large piece. I expected a better product from Oreck. I sometimes have to revert to my little battery operated model when I get tired of the Oreck. The little one seems to do just as good a job, or better. It just takes longer, and then there is the battery issue.

If you just use this occasionally, then I guess it's sufficient.

This shaver arrived in the mail today and I was so excited because I have a very expensive sweater with pills on it. It is a sweater so this shaver should make quick work of pills.

It literally does NOTHING. NOTHING! Every pill is still there. The motor on this thing is so loud that you would think it would shaver those pills off with no problem.

I then moved to a polar fleece blanket that I have. Again, I sat there for 20 minutes trying to get the pills off to no avail.

This shaver is going back. I have done so much research and none of the shavers get very good reviews but I decided on this simply because I couldn't believe an Oreck product couldn't be good. Lesson learned.

Oh, and if I wanted a sweater shaver that didn't work, there are plenty of $4.99 models around...I didn't have to pay $25 for it!

I thought this thing, because it's so big, would make my life much easier. But the blades are dull as butterknives. It won't cut any pills off sweaters. I've used it for over half an hour on my pill-iest sweaters -- taking long slow circular passes -- and it's only accrued a little surface fuzz maybe a quarter's diameter in its collection chamber. No pills. I tried several times with different clothing items and had the same sorry results. This shaver seemed too useless to even give to Goodwill and let someone else be frustrated by, so I threw it in the trash.

Does not work very well. Openings of screen seem too small to lit in the areas you are trying to shave off.

I have owned many clothes shavers and this one far surpasses any I have had before. I accidentally washes a brand new sweater in with something I should not have. I thought it was ruined but this great little shaver made it look new again in just a couple of minutes. if you own sweaters, you need this :)

This item is large, but the holes that the blades use are very small, and it does not suck the shaveings very well into it's own lint trap. I had thought with the brand name Oreck it would be a tested and quality product. It looks like we will no longer be purchasing Oreck products thinking Quality Tested. Not worth the time to return this product. My time by the minuet is worth more than the loss I would take returning this cheap plastic poorly made product! BEWARE!

Item did not work at all. I tried the shaver on serval different clothing items and it looked exactly the same 15 minutes later. Disappointed in Oreck, with their reputation I thought I purchased a quality item but that was not in fact what I received! Would not recommend buying.
