Top critical review
Reviewed in Australia on 18 February 2020
- vacuums our hard floors very well (good suction & battery life),
- able to climb over 1cm step into our kitchen
- does seem to find its way back to base station most of the time
- doesn't seem to get stuck in too many instances...
- dust collection container quite small - this makes the "automatic schedule to run" completely useless (you have to physically be there to empty it - so you may as well turn it on yourself!)
- the (HEPA?) filter is not washable - so you'll be buying those periodically
- "mop" function is more like a "wipe" function - wouldn't buy this machine for it's mopping abilities
- collision detection "patchy":
- tends to not detect & so hit thinner objects (eg. chair legs) at full speed
- sometimes "over-senses" things like walls and then doesn't get close enough to suck up dirt
- A "me" issue: it's not as "slim-lined" as advertised - web sites quote 7cm - but maybe that's just the body? sitting on the floor it's actually 8cm & will not fit under our couches :-<
Conclusion: A bigger dust bin & a washable filter would have made me (mostly) happy! - but at this price point, and with the other (small but annoying) issues, it's not particularly great value for money. I feel as if I should have kept on looking....
