Vax U89-P9-T Power 9 Total Home  Bagless Upright V&hellip by Vax
We had Dyson uprights (DC03 & DC04) which were tired after years of good service.

Xerox 7600i Flatbed Scanner by Xerox
I have used Xerox scanners of this series as 'home office' products for many years. This one is the best yet, not needing a separate DC power feed and including an excellent bundle of very recent, top-version editions of Paperport, PDF Converter and Omipage software. The software alone justifies the package price.
