Really a waste of time. I had to constantly monitor the robotic vacuum so that I could reposition it whenever it got stuck. Which was a lot.
The vacuum has a beautiful sleek and shine black look - unless you touch it. Fingerprints show up instantly and stick around. Although I only used the vacuum once, on a floor that didn't have much dirt to begin with, it was not that easy to clean. The robotic vacuum's release button was a bit challenging.
After using a blow dryer to clean dust from the filter, a brush is provided to finish the job. It took quite a bit of brushing to make it look almost-new. Again, after only one use.
All in all, this is one robotic vacuum that is NOT ready for prime time. My search continues - I'm considering this Roomba model due to mostly great reviews.
“First things first, there are not any of these anywhere near this price that actually vacuum. I've never owned one of these, but here's what I think: This thing could actually be pretty good if you have an open area of almost only hard surface to do. We have three different area rugs on our laminate. It can almost always get onto these, but sometimes stops getting off of them like it thinks it has been picked up. Where it really struggles in my novice opinion, is on navigation. When it bumps into something, like a chair, it will keep bumping it, turning slightly away and then right back into it, for long enough that it wastes a lot of its charge. Also, the cleaning pattern on auto seems completely random, going around the same places repeatedly. I swear on one cycle it hit the same chair leg 5 times or more. The spot function seems to work well. And it never has, despite numerous opportunities, NEVER fallen down the stairs. If you are looking for something programmable or that you can turn on and leave alone, keep looking. This ain't it. That said, it does pick up dirt, dog hair, etc. If you want something more, you are going to be well over double this price.”
