I bought this vacuum after hearing it was the best one on the market and it could do anything. Well I will tell you what it didn't do: It did not please my wife when she opened it. Long story short, I now have this perfectly brand new dyson vacuum that isn't planning on getting up and vacuuming my house on its own, so I guess I will see if it likes one of you better. Perhaps you will have more luck than I did with it.
It is still in the box, and has the red "accent" which makes it hard to understand sometimes, but you'll get the jist of it after a few days. It has been yelling at me from the backseat of my Jeep now for a couple weeks and I have to tell you, I still don't understand it most of the time. Must be a UK thing.
All kidding aside, I will ship CONUS, and split the shipping with anyone interested.
