Guys...salesman try to sell this Rainbow vacuum cleaner for $3,400. Promise to pick up dirt like nothing before from any surface and cleans your air better than any air purifier out there.

Take a look : http://www.rainbowsy...ain/?lg=english

I personally think it's ridiculous to pay $3.4k for a vacuum cleaner but what do you think? Would you pay for one?

$3400 is way too expensive, why would people want to pay so much for a vacuum cleaner? No wonder MIW thought all Singaporean so rich, don't tax you also cannot.

Agree with you. Rainbow Vacuum Cleaner is expensive. The good one is the unit which suck up the bed bugs from the bed matress and sofa.

One of my friend likes to ask their salesman to demo his place. His intention is to get free cleaning and not interested to get it. After 2 demos, they avoid him .

I think ppl dun look into the root of the dust problem in their house. I read those baby/mother forum and it's obvious the root of the "dust" problem is actually microfibers from their mattress/pillow/quilt/carpet/sofa.....but....they choose to keep all these things and instead spend a few k on a vacuum cleaner to constantly clean up the microfibers that these products create.

And the funny thing is they feel so happy that they have found such an expensive solution and say they enjoy doing housework. LOL... some ppl are really...I'm in a dilemma, which word best describe these ppl?
The chosen one will bring balance to the Force...I mean Singapore. Even star wars do not reserve "the chosen one" to a sith lord or a jedi or a wookie.

I would not. For that amount of money, I can get a reasonably good sofa set.

Thanks for all the replies guys....

I personally think it was crazy too at that price but prefer to ask around what other people think incase I am the one who is abnormal.

From my viewpoint, it's not the affordability issue. I think anyone can fork out 3.4k for something.....but for a vacuum cleaner???

I wouldn't pay that price for a VC even if it can wash my laundry and clean my plates.

Keep your feedback rolling guys....appreciate it.

Actually the demo made it look as if i was living in filth all these years. But heck, after living in "filth" for so long i'm alive and reasonably healthy, treat it as a free cleaning up session. 3k+ for a VC, siao boh?

They always tried to sell this vacuum cleaner to potential customer in installment, that way it do not feels so expensive.

I was approach once but when the salesman tell me it cost $3000+, I was shock and my brain immediately like "Shut down" and everything else cannot go in anymore, hahaha, lucky me.

For me I prefer to use a very handy vacuum cleaner that is small and light to drag around the house.

I will prefer to spend around $200 on a VC, esp those with bagless facility, use it for 2 years or so then replace with another new one.

My logic is that with all those sucking weekly, dirt and dust will definitely be trapped in all those nooks and crannies within the VC which cannot be cleaned. You can change the bag, clean the dust box, replace HEPA filter but can never clean the insides which become dirtier and dirtier as the days go by.

Might as well buy a new one as it will work more efficiently and definitely cleaner on the inside.
