There's a Lot of Neat Technology inside Every Neato Vacuum.

 



Features

Neato vacuum

It Scans, Maps, and Plans

Most other robot vacuums move around a room at random. They bump into walls, bump into furniture. They go in circles, cleaning some spots several times and others not at all. But Neato knows exactly where it's going at all times.

Its remarkable laser eye uses infrared light to scan the surroundings five times every second. The result is a highly accurate 360-degree map of the room and any obstacles. Then the robot efficiently cleans in a pattern of straight, overlapping lines.

Neato vacuum

Don't You Dare Call It a Sweeper!

A lot of robot "vacuums" are really just sweepers. Their low vacuum power is merely an add-on. But not the Neato. It's the most powerful robot vacuum available today. At the core of every Neato is a centrifugal compression-impeller that uses jet engine airflow principles to create high-powered suction. You can count on it to pick up everything a traditional vacuum would - dirt, pet hair, dust, cereal, and more.

Neato vacuum

Obstacle Avoidance

As it moves around a room, the robot's sensor enables it to avoid obstacles like furniture, walls, stairs, and pets.

Neato vacuum

It Takes Care of Itself

A Neato can handle large floor plans, because it automatically recharges its batteries. When it's low on power, the robot simply returns to its base and recharges. Then it returns to clean, right where it left off.

Neato vacuum

Bagless

With a Neato there are no bags to buy or throw away. All the dirt and debris is collected in the Neato's top-loading dirt bin. When the bin is full, you simply empty it into your trash.

Neato vacuum

Easy Scheduling

Set a schedule and the Neato will automatically clean at the time you set - daily, every other day, or three times a week.

Neato vacuum

All Floors Are Covered

Unlike some vacuums, Neato robots are designed to work on all types of surfaces. So it can go from the carpet in your living room right onto the tile in your kitchen.

Neato vacuum

Pets and Allergies

Breathe easy, there are Neato models specifically designed for pet owners and allergy sufferers. They feature two very special tools for removing allergens from your home. The bristle brush traps pet hair and lifts it from the surface. Then the special pleated filter removes particles from the air stream down to 0.3 microns in size, including mold, spores, cat and dog dander, dust mites, pollen, and textile and carpet fibers.

Neato vacuum

It Cleans Where You Don't

There are places in your home that don't get vacuumed very often (or at all), because they're so hard to reach. A Neato robot is only 4 inches high, so it can scurry under beds, couches, and other places regular vacuums can't go.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh +

Pros: First, you will anthropomorphize, wheeled box notwithstanding. This little fella careens around the joint and occasionally stops, spins around on his axis getting his bearings and then bounces off a coffee table, just like Uncle Eddie. Unlike Uncle Eddie this guy, we call him Zippity, cleans up after himself.
Good power, reasonable square feet per charge on hardwoods, works reasonably reliably if you factor in the complexity of the machine to your reliability metric.

Cons: When the battery is low, which is often, the list of ailments is long.
Zippity sees the charger and when he is running low he heads for it. He does a dance that results in him backing up to it it with his backside shaking like skinny Elvis. If his trajectory is less than ideal or he rolls forward after his charging wires contact the charger plates or either the plates or wires are not in a conductive mood due to grime buildup, then he may not charge rapidly, completely or at all.
If his batteries are worn out (the factory bats have a maximum amount of charge cycles before kaput) then he will not charge or will not retain charge.
Every time you recharge is one less time that you can recharge.

Other Thoughts: I expect that many reported error issues are really charging issues.
One of the benefits of buying this refurb is the short duration warranty frees you to buy top shelf lithium ions with beaucoup muscle and many more recharge cycles than the nickel hydrides that come with Neato. If you are using batteries that cut your recharge in half due to larger capacity, that fact alone will double the life expectancy of the bot and makes for a solid justification for buying them, warranty be da**ed.
As far as the issues with good charging, keep an eye on the bot and check the connection points for cleanliness.

5 out of 5 eggsThese things are awsome!

Pros: Amazing product. I use this to vacuum around the print shop and it does an amazing job all the time...and let me tell you there is many obstacles and it figures it out every time. I had a Roomba and this unit is far more superior in everyway. One thing to mention, like it says in the manual, it takes a few goes for the batteries to reach their full capacity. The first time it started it only ran 10mins and the second it ran for about 45mins and after the 4 recharge it goes for well over an hour and a half. The suction is amazing, every time I empty the bin I'm blown away. I totally recommend this product.

Cons: Nothing so far

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Excellent, replaces a Roomba 700 series vacuum and does twice as better job. Most impressive is the way it maps a room before starting, it gives the impression that it's really intelligent. Plus it does all the rooms without assistance with the roomba I had to move from room to room half the time. On top of that it seems it picks up a lot better.

Cons: Loud, sounds let a jet engine starting up. Edge cleaning could be somewhat better, its about the same as the roomba.

Other Thoughts: For a refurbished unit the one I got appears to be a brand new machine and the batteries are definitely new in the machine I got..

3 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: When it works, it works well

Cons: Neato began experiencing errors with rebooting and batteries in less than one year. Other than dropping an additional $100 dollars on replacement batteries, I have yet to find a fix from the company.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: when they work they do a fairly nice job of light vacuuming.

Cons: Did not work properly out of the box.The memory it uses to map out a room did not work. It always got lost and would just wander around totally lost. Even called neato robotics and after about 2 hours on the line got someone to talk to. Had me wipe the bottom sensors and do a reset by holding the power button down for 20 seconds til it came back on. This did not work so I have returned it back to newegg.

Other Thoughts: Be warned, do not buy these refurbished robots! I don't think they are serviced properly or they would work. I have been an early owner of these and it took about 6 robots before I received one that works.
And they were not refurbs. I thought that getting one that had the bugs worked out of it a refurb would be a good idea. WRONG!!

1 out of 5 eggsWorst $300 spent, don't buy this

Pros: - Works well in obstacle free environments when it isn't knocking doors into the closed position

Cons: - I was hesitant to purchase a refurb but the unit was fine for the first few months. I only used it once/week.
- Every other week there were hiccups. Please clear my dirt bin, although it wasn't full. Please clear my brush, although it didn't seem fully clogged up. Being a robot slave to my robot vacuum, I complied.
- Now, I get the dreaded "left wheel is stuck with debris" error. Turning it around, I notice the left wheel is not as smooth as the right wheel.
- Their support website is useless
- Worst $300 I've spent in my life, can't get a replacement, can't get the money back

Other Thoughts: Seriously don't buy this, waste of money. It's a public beta test of a product that they should be paying you to use. Completely aggravating.

4 out of 5 eggsNeato XV-21 Refurb

Pros: Bought on sale $199 and paid $18 for the additional warranty.

User menu and operation is simple. If so inclined, can be done using your toe. If the missus is reading, i did not do this!

It sucks, but in the good way! One pass and it has picked up dust and debris. Spot Clean and scheduler are a godsend for busy families or with pets.

I have a young family who are prone to missing their mouths! The spot clean covers about 2m square and can be let loose under the table whilst the kids are in their highchairs! They love it and have called it Veato. It navigates around table and chair legs.

At night we clear the room of clutter and pick up toys to give Veato the best chance for a good clean. It comes out after we're in bed to complete the open plan kitchen / dining / livingroom and front hall in about 90 minutes on one charge. It can get stuck under tapered/sloping furniture or on top of chair legs with odd shapes, so i'd recommend have it clean the area a few times during the day where it can be monitored and can note trouble area. I just move the offending chair outside the magnetic boundary and its all good.

We move it (Veato and the base station) around the house on a regular basis and we have not had any issues with it completing in one pass withou recharge or losing the base station. We only limit it to a room at a time as the upstairs is abit of a rabbit warren with bedrooms and bathrooms.

This saved us 3 hours/week and has made my wife a very happy lady!

Cons: It can get stuck on objects, so watch it the first few times to make sure its ok.

This is my first robotic vac, so have no frame of reference but to me the noise is ok. It doesnt scare my small kids (like the large upright vac) and can still carry on a normal conversation in the same room. I'm personally ok with this given i know how effective the vacume is. We had guests in the basement below and said that the scheduled cleaning sounded like being under a flight path, but that has more to do with our soundproofing than anything!

Other Thoughts: We clean the dustbin and filter after each use as its only the size of about 2 rubics cubes. I would have like this to be bundled with 2 additional filters as you will need these.

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't last

Pros: Worked really well when it was working. Easy to setup and very easy to use. Very simple timing schedule and did the job very well.

Took care of our cat hair issues on the hard wood floors great.

Cons: Didn't last 90 days. On the 89th day, received error "my fan is stuck". I've contacted Neato and we'll see if they process my unit.

I believe it would get confused often, doing the same room over again or going in circles. Sometimes it couldn't find it station and just keep going around until it died and I put it back on charger.

Unable to update it since my PC is Windows 8.1 - Wasn't ever able to update and see what that did.

Other Thoughts: I was really hopeful, never bought a refurbished item of this cost before, so was nervous. If they fix or replace the unit, I'd give it a higher rating, but since it didnt last and the guy on the phone said this is a Very Old unit, I can only give it 1 star.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: I'm amazed by how well this will navigate most obstacles in my house. I go out and when I come home it looks like I had a maid come and clean up. So impressed I've bought several as gifts for others. As for the other review saying it needs 3 charges to do a 400 Sq ft room this seems very different from my experience. It cleans my small apartment about 1k Sq ft in about an hour on a single charge.

Cons: There are a few issues. First or has trouble with some object which are lower than its laser turret and higher than its bumper it will often get stuck on these had to rearrange or block of some pieces of furniture because of this. My only other complaint is there seems to be very little uniformity in the refurbishment process having ordered 3. One was nearly brand new with all the original stickers and the battery disconnected and such. Only one came with a manual and another one with the small tool, another came quite dirty. since all of them work and everything that was missing was not important it's not really a big deal. I just wonder how well they really check them out since half of them are plugged in out of the box and half aren't

2 out of 5 eggsIf weren't plague by bugs, it could be the best robot vacuum.

Pros: Powerful suction, picks up dust, hair, dirt particles better than Roomba.
Cleaning schematics are very good. Cleans very close to walls, corners and furniture.
Cleans fast, like I would clean, straight overlapping lines.
HEPA filter to block out allergens
Easy to remove brush roll to remove hair.
Could setup schedule cleaning.
It does returns to its charging base when battery is low, then goes back to cleaning.

Cons: Too many bugs/errors on a finished product.
-‘My vision was blocked. Please press OKAY (3000)’
-‘Please press OK to restart. Battery issue (0002).’
-‘Cleaning suspended while charging’ in middle of room away from charger.
-‘Please wait while I recover my position’. I waited and it failed to recover its position.
Even under warranty you will have to pay to get the unit repair.
Batteries do not whole charge and degrade very fast.
Sometimes it cannot find recharging station right in front of it.
It get stuck by itself in the middle of a room and start going in circles like a drunk.
It could clean better with edge cleaning brush to reach corners and floor edge.
It should come with a remote control or a way to control it with an app.
Taller than Roomba so it might not be able to clean under some furniture (sofa).

Other Thoughts: If you review this machine during the first months you will give 4 or 5 stars.
I waited several months to post a review since it appears that after 4 months or so bugs start to show up.
I purchased this unit so my wife would clean less during her pregnancy. Well it did not last so I became the vacuum.
Roomba is more reliable unit.
