I'm not impressed
Pros: The ILIFE V3s is noisy but it does find a lot of the cat hair scattered around our tile floors. Even though the dust bin is a decent size, it fills up quickly (we have 3 long-haired cats). The random travel style of navigation can be frustrating as it zig-zags around, often passing a nearby clump of hair to head off to another area, never to return during that cleaning session. The instructions leave a lot to be desired. I'm a retired computer expert and have yet to figure out how to set the time schedule & operating modes. The multi-function buttons on the remote are identified but there is no hint or example as to how they can be used to solve typical home scheduling or operational needs. Further, the English grammar (or lack thereof) needs some help.
Cons: Noisy Erratic travel Poor instructions
Overall Review: Though it does a good job of sucking up whatever it encounters, I do not think most home owners would be satisfied with this as their standard vacuum.
