This is not a recommendation, suggestion, opinion, or guidance. I just want to say I agoniEd over this question 11 years ago. Bought a Royal Exclusiv 180 mini. 11 years later it works like the day I got it, cleans easily, and has never so much as blinked. The one time I thought it was broken it had sucked a rock in. Once removed, it was back to flawless.
