Neat Robot

rsardinas 5/17/2020

We love our little lucy! The vacuum works as advertised (including the battery life). We are considering getting the high end model since it states it has a minimum of 60 minute battery life. Unfortunately, for us, Lucy will often run out of battery before she can make it back to the charging station. We have a 4k+ sq ft home and we have been running her downstairs. Hopefully, getting the one with the larger battery will solve that issue, and we can move lucy upstairs. Honestly, except for the battery, this model does everything we need. It does a surprisingly good job at cleaning up. We have a mix of hardwood, rugs, and carpet on the floor. It cleans under the beds! We have 3 girls, all under 6, and they love watching lucy work. I suppose its not "that" much of an issue. If it dies, you can just bring it back to the charger. It won't pick back up where it left off, if it dies, but depending on where it dies, it will sometimes make it back to the charger (if it hasn't strayed too far).

mismarthome 2/6/2020

into service 4 times within 12 mo. robot just stops suctioning off and on - canister doesn't fill, instead it gets hung up before the "cyclone" cs is a joke. save your money and go elsewhere.
