Top critical review
Intelligent? It’s an idiot.

Honestly don’t know how this has so many great reviews! It’s awful! The only positive is that it picks up dirt okay from tiles (I don’t have carpet).
The major problem with this is that it doesn’t ‘map’ the floor, it just goes until it hits an obstacle then changes direction. I have the charging dock set up in the lounge room. Every time I use it, it heads out of the room in a straight line, then gets stuck in the hallway - literally going up and down the same area for hours - because it can’t navigate its way back. The lounge room never gets cleaned. The first time I used it, I let it run for 1.5 hours and it hadn’t cleaned the whole apartment in that time because it kept going over the same spots repeatedly.
Also when I use the remote control to ask it to come back to the dock, it beeps in recognition, but it can’t actually find the dock - I have to go and pick it up and put it on the charger every time. It’s also quite loud. Overall - a waste of money.
