From the RexAir website, I see that the device has been "modernized. The list price is now a bit over $2500 (US). My recollection is that the old family unit was about $65, or about 2x the then current price of a good Hoover and about 80% of what one would pay for a Kirby.
I also note that about half the links from the Rexair home page are to pages apparently in Russian (cyrillic script could be another language; but it looks Russo to me. Maybe it's greek?). A couple of other pages appear to have been back-translated (poorly) from Japanese: at least they carry "textbook grammatical structures" typical of translations for Japanese products.
There appears to be no possibility of finding a "user guide" via the company, as they apparently insist that all contact must be via home demonstrations. They also emphasize that only items purchased direct from authorized agents are warranted.
Strange that I haven't seen them on the late night "paid commercial announcements" on my TV recently.
