Yeah, I wouldn't buy a Beam now either - recent production problems don't make it a good buy anymore.

Not on hand - but I've been shopping around and the sales people are warning me off, even if they carry it. Even pointing me to cheaper versions, so they can't just be after an upsell.

They say they see a lot of problems with it now, and some stores aren't, or won't be soon, carrying that brand anymore.

It might get fixed, but for now, personally I would stay away.

I'm using a 4B-H750 by Honeywell. Its actually made by Electrolux with the Honeywell brand on it.

If you guys want to consider Honeywell I can get you those directly.

It really depends on which model people are looking at. They are all listed on the honeywell website under Consumer/Home and Central Vac Systems. I can price out (by PM) the units for people. Depends how many people are in as well.

Installation can be an option, I do have guys that do that. I'm in the Home Theatre installation line of work.
