Make cleaning the house easy with this electric Neato Robotics XV-11 vacuum cleaner. Let this vacuum clean your stone floors, carpets, rugs, hardwood floors, or laminate floors and let it do all the hard work for you, even when youre not at home.
ITEM#: 14479283Unlike other major robotic vacuum cleaners, which randomly travel around a room, the Neato robotic vacuum scans rooms in a full 360? circle with the help of a laser range finder, and then it vacuums in straight lines until the area is clean. The Neato uses an algorithm which allows it to map each room being vacuumed while it is efficiently completing its vacuuming task. All Neato robotic Vacuums are able to locate its charging base and charge itself if the battery is running low. If the robot is used to vacuum a very large area which cannot be covered in one battery charge, the robot is able to re-charge itself, and then resume cleaning in the exact spot where it left off the previous session. The Neato also has sensors which prevent it from falling down stairs.

Does exactly what it says it will do, we have 2 cats and a dog and the amount of pet hair this little guy gets is truly amazing. After we found the perfect spot for its placement, (took a few tries to get it where it could consistently find its base) it has not failed to find its dock when done. It will however get stuck under the same ottoman and if stuck will run out of juice before it gets back to its base, that is the only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars. We run it Mon-Friday and no need to run our big sweeper. We love it.Read More
First one I received didn't work... Contacted manufacturer and they shipped me a new one. I love Neato... I have a dog who sheds constantly - I have Neato set to run everyday - he cleans my hardwood floors like a champ... also works well on my area rugs.. love that he can get under my bed and furniture... Notice I refer to Neato as HE.... It's time a male did all the vacuuming in my house.... I would highly recommend Neato....Read More
I have had a Roomba for a few years. I moved and decided I would update my robot vacuum. After reading reviews, I decided to try the Neato. I am very disappointed in it. First of all, it is supposed to be less noisy than the Roomba?! I beg to differ. I have to set it to work while I'm gone because I can't stand the extreme noise. It will vacuum a room one time and then stop where I left it when obviously the room is not clean so I have to set it to do a room at least three times before it is "clean" although it is never really totally clean. It has a hard time going from my wood floor to my area rug which isn't very thick. It constantly has some error message which most of the time is nonsensical and doesn't even pertain to a problem. I feel like I am dealing with a kid, I have to keep going back to check on it. I am extremely frustrated with it. For me, this was a waste of my money. I will be going back to my Roomba as soon as possible. Although Roomba is not without problems, I find it far superior to the Neato.Read More
AFTER READING ALL THE PRODUCT REVIEWS I THOUGH THIS VACUUM WAS GOING TO BE AMAZING. THE FIRST ONE I RECIEVED WAS USED. THERE WAS WOMENS HAIR AND DIRT IN THE DUST COLLECTION BEND. I TRIED IT ANYWAYS AND IT ACTUALLY WORKED WELL. IT WENT UNDER BEDS, ROUNDED CORNERS AND ALL IN ALL I WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE OPERATION. HOWEVER, SINCE I PAID FOR A NEW ONE I WANTED A NEW ONE. I RETURNED THAT ONE. THE SECOND ONE CAME IN AND IT NEVER WORKED. IT KEPT SAYING THE LEFT WHEEL WAS STUCK OR THE FAN MOTOR WAS BROKE....SENT THAT ONE BACK. THE 3RD ONE TOOK 2 WEEKS TO GET HERE AND IT WAS WORSE THAN THE SECOND ONE. IT JUST KEPT GOING IN CIRCLES AND SAYING TO CLEAR IT'S PATH. I HAVE BRAND NEW WOOD FLOORS AND NOTHING WAS EVER IMPEDING THE VACUUM...NOTHING BUT SMOOTH FLOORS AND WALLS TO DEAL WITH. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTINGRead More
I had my doubts that this vacuum could clean as well as a regular vacuum. I love it much more! It is excellent at cleaning my rugs, wood floors and tile floors. I can get busy washing, drying and folding cloths while my "Robin the Robot" cleans my home. I can feed the baby without any problems while Robin works hard on my home. Another great thing about it is the ability to set the time and number of days that you want it to clean and it will start up and clean on its own. I have a dog and a long haired cat. This vacuum gets their hair up without any problems. I would recommend this vacuum to EVERYONE!Read More
Great Product. Simple to setup and operate. Pet hair does not get caught up in roller, therefore rarely needs maintenance. Can go room to room and still returns to charging station when needed. After recharging returns to last room vacuumed and continues until entire house is clean. Programmable for daily cleanings at specified times or specific days with specific times. Jet engine technology for better vacuum suction. I have mine programmed to clean daily and each day it vacuums up a significant amount of dust, dirt, pet hair, debris and loose carpet fibers. Only problem I have had is getting it to climb back onto carpet from linoleum. I have extra thick padding under carpet and metal carpet strips are tall and steep. In the process of modifying metal strips.Read More
I had been looking for a robotic vacuum for a few years now. I'm disabled & just can't vacuum the house anymore. This machine is wonderful, I can't possibly say enough good things about it. It's even polite & thanks you for emptying the dust chamber. It's also entertaining my 89 year old mother & also the cat, get a big kick out of watching it working it's way around the room. This machine is easy on the furniture, no running into things to get direction. It's amazing how it scan's the room & sets up a pattern to vacuum. Greatest robotic vacuum I've seen yet. I am so glad I bought it.Read More
This vac cleans bare floors really well, the dust bin is easy to empty and it didn't take anytime to program the machine. It runs every night for a coulple hours picking up all the hair from my three dogs and my cat, a real lifesaver. It even goes under the furniture that would usually hide dust bunnies and around tables and chairs. The only draw back is that you need police the area before going to bed or it might try to pick up your socks or phone charger cords its powerful enough to unplug things as well,Read More
This little robotic vacuum works much better than the Roomba that is is replacing. It gets more dirt in the bin and actually has suction rather than just brushes. the only downfall is that it gets lost & cannot find it's way back to the dock quite often. I will still buy another one when they are back in stock.Read More
This vacuum works great especially for pet hair as I have 3 long haired cats & dark walnut hardwood floors. My only complaints would be it doesnt like my shag type rugs I have in my Fam room and gets stuck on those so I had to go to manufacturer website and buy more of the strips to lay down at edge of rug to prevent it from going up on my rug. It will run about 2hrs and do my entire 1st floor of my house which is 2,000 sq ft. before it nees to be charged. It has never been able to find its way back to the docing station to recharge so when I hear it quite I have to pick it up and return it by hand which really isnt a big deal. I have a electrolux hand small vac I use on my floors as well but this does a much better job I think because it has rubber type blades etc. on the bottom that really get the dirt up you will be amazed at how much dirt, hair and lint end up in the dirt bin.Read More

Best Kid-friendly Fabric for Sofas
Finding the right sofa and loveseats that match your room, have the right look and meet your budget can be like searching for a needle in a haystack. If kid-friendly fabrics are on your must-have list, start by looking below. This article will help you find the best kid-friendly fabrics for sofas, which should repel stains and hold up to added abuse from children jumping, scooting and forgetting to remove their shoes before hopping on the sofa. Microfiber: Microfiber is stain-resistant and comes in different textures. Some microfiber weaves are smooth, like suede, and others are denser, similar to corduroy. You may clean most microfiber with water, but check the manufacturer's tag because a few types of microfiber may require cleaning with a compatible solvent. Wool: For sofas, wool and wool blends are great because of their durability. They're less prone to pilling, snagging and wrinkling than other fabrics. Plus, wool is easy to spot-clean. Vacuum this natural fabric with a hand-held vacuum attachment to remove dust. Leather: Leather is a versatile sofa fabric; it can be elegant or totally casual. Its slick surface makes cleanups relatively easy. Beware if you have pets, as little claws can leave scratch marks. Scuff-repair solutions are available, and they can keep your kids' sofa looking good for years. In addition, a quick treatment with leather conditioner once or twice a year will keep the sofa soft and supple. Vinyl: Vinyl is just as versatile as leather and often has the same smart look, but at a much more affordable price. It's easy to clean, too: just spray it with water and wipe spills away. Vinyl isn't as snuggly as microfiber, but in a playroom, it will hold up to lots of abuse. Denim: Just because a sofa is upholstered in denim doesn't mean it'll look like your worn-out jeans. Just like a comfy pair of jeans, denim is sturdy and goes with everything. In addition, denim sofas are available in a rainbow of colors to match your kids' bedrooms or playroom.
