This review is from: ILIFE V3s Robotic Vacuum Cleaner for Pets and Allergies Home, Pearl White
Pros: Does what it's designed to do - clean the floor
Comes with a remote control that lets you direct where you want it to go and what action to perform (perimeter/deep clean)
Self docks for recharging
Comes with 3 hepa filters, one installed and 2 replacements
2600 mah battery is comparable to a smartphone so cheap electricity costs while allowing 90+ minutes of use at a time
Cons: Does not work on thick carpet but it's not designed to. There's no roller on the bottom to handle carpet but it works ok on rugs. Thick carpet it can maneuver through but can get stuck when changing directions. The shag mat in my bathroom it will occasionally get hung up on.
The edge sensor to keep it from falling down the stairs works great, but in my apartment the top of the stairs has a gentle roll for the first step. By the time it detects that the edge is there, it's sometimes unable to reverse back up the incline.
A perimeter sensor to block off areas where it shouldn't go would be nice but can't really complain for the price
Other Thoughts: For the first few days, the only indication I had that the thing had run on its schedule was that the bin had filled partially up. I didn't have proof until it failed to back itself out from falling down the stairs one time. I just sit a box on the steps when I leave in the morning and I've not had the issue since.
I use it daily to clean my 1200 sq ft apartment - The living/dining/hallway is all wood. The kitchen and bathrooms are tile. For the bedrooms since they are thick carpet, I close all the doors before I leave in the morning.
I can say that even after going around with a broom, I've never had the floor this clean. Walking around barefoot I would always find something on the floor that I'd need to pick up. Now, since this runs daily, the floor is always particle free.
Pros: Lightweight but sturdy. Big plus on the toolless design for the drive bays. I had no problems fitting my hardware in the case including my 8800GTS with room to spare.
Cons: The 24 pin PSU connector is about 4 inches too short to be used in this configuration. You can tell the PSU was designed to be mounted on the top of the case and not require much cable to connect to the mobo.
Other Thoughts: Instead of ordering a replacement PSU I've ordered a 24 pin extension cable to resolve (only reason I'm giving 3 instead of 4 stars).READ FULL REVIEW
