Does anyone have any experiences with these bad boys? I'm considering.



Now I just need one that cooks.

Yeah my parents use them. They're pretty good, but you just need to make sure you clean them and their wheels as hair clogs up the rollers and stuff.

The latest ones work much better, they have some older ones which aren't quite as clever or reliable but the new ones are flawless. It's good especially in a bedroom as they'll neatly go under a low bed etc which can be hard to vacuum.

Not as good as a real dyson vacuum but good for keeping a place much closer to neat all the time. Now and again i move back home and use it every week just to try and keep my room dustfree while i play videogames or go out. Then vacuuming once a month doesn't make me feel so bad.

There are so many cords and other s*** across my floor that this thing would need to be built like the mars rover to get around.

A normal vacuum would be a million times faster and cleaner

Don't bother, waste of time and money. Much faster with a vacuum and better results.

It's great for the regular day to day tidy up of visible material but not for deep thorough vacuuming.

Who cares how fast your vacuum is when it's a robots time. Unless you're paying your robot by the hour, then this is time saved. Hell you probably only vacuum your room once a week or once a fortnight, with this the idea is doing it more often, press play every couple of days or once a week and it does it's own thing then docks itself at the end to charge. At worst, you'll want to clean it every month.

Yeah, that's what I reckon. Dust off the floorboards type stuff. Not a replacement for a vacuum.

I wish I vacuumed this often :-/

i have had one for years.. but now it mostly sits in the corner.. its a lot fast to throw a broom at the floor or use the cordless vacuum 2 mins vs 45 mins

the more s*** you have on your floor like chairs and s*** the less effective it is..

+ cleaning it is a pain in the ass
