A large percent of the time, I have to babysit this robot. It gets stock in some areas, it runs out of batteries, etc. It is moody. Unfortunately, I don't have the time and patients. It did broke about 3 times within 6 months, but the manufacturer replace it with a brand new robot right away. Excellent customer service from the manufacturer.

Have shepherd and 3 cats, and this is good vaccuum to have with that amount of fur flying around. Like the attachments espec the pet fur tool. HAve chenille sofa & can see the original color again. Also, like the bigger wheels on this model makes it easier to maneuver

I have a german sheppard and 3 cats, that is alot of fur in my house. This vacuum does the job for picking up pet hair!!!. I didnt realize how much hair was in the carpet until I got this vacuum. I love that I no longer have to purchase bags...saves a lot of money. I would highly reccommend this vaccuum, excellent for the money and a 2 year warranty for $10 makes it all the sweeter.

Why did I wait so long? That sums it up best for me. I should be a salesperson for Roomba. Every person that enters my house not only hears me rave how awesome it is, they also get a demonstration! I know 3 of my friends have purchased one since seeing mine in action.....thinking I should be getting a cut of these sales iRobot executives!!!!!

The actual sweeper part is smaller than the one we replaced, but it works good. I love the way you hit a large button on the bottom and its "mouth" opens so that you can dump the dirt easily. I would purchase again. My 6 year old boy uses it to vacume after picking up his room and the family room. Just the right size for him (3' 11") and me (5'5")

Product was wonderful for the 1st 3 months. After that it quit working. It is supposed to have a 1 year warranty, but I haven't had much luck with product support. After emailing a couple of times, they finally sent me a replacement part, which didn't make it work. Our emails went on for several months and I finally told them I wanted a working unit or my money back. They will not give me my money back, and if I want a refurbished unit, I have to pay the cost to send the product back. I don't think they would have offered a refurbished unit if I wouldn't have insisted. So hears the bottom line, it worked for 3 months, I purchased a brand new product and I can get a refurbished product if I am willing to pay the shipping cost!!!! DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!

I waited a while to take the giant step into the robtic vacuum world. wow! love this.it feels as if the whole house is just cleaner. having daily vacs done when we didnt get around to it more than weekly before has made such a difference. we have 3 dogs and a cat and plenty of hair. this thing is sort of like a little person...it is such a hard worker! we have area rugs, slate, wood, and travertine in the bath. I am diligent at cleaning brushes and emptying the bin daily. I move the clutter out f the way in the AM before we leave and it is set for 10AM. The dogs get out of its way but are less freaked than I had expected as I have a couple of pretty skittish dogs. the cat could not care less..my husband is totally sold on it and he was quite a skeptic.

I'm giving this 5 stars. I have two cats and a dog. I'm 79. I haven't the energy to run the vacuum cleaner daily, even though I've got an excellent Seba. I can't afford to hire a cleaner oftener than once a month. So I thought I'd give the Arte a try, even though I was doubtful. So doubtful that I let it sit for a month in its shipping box before I finally got it out, studied the manual, and gave it a try. I am amazed! At first, I ran it every day, then every other day, now every 2-3 days. At first the dirt container was packed full with all manner of dirt. But now there's very little. This Arte has really cleaned my rug thoroughly, all 5 rooms plus the bathroom (and the carpetted deck when I let it). I feel much more comfortable walking around my apartment. (I now take off my shoes as soon as I bring the dog in from his walk, and walk around in socks or slippers, so as not to track in dirt and leaves from outside.) I would give the Arte 5 stars but for the nuisance of having to clean the brushes every time; they collect lots of tangled dog and cat hair as well as acrylic carpet fluff (the worst!). It takes me a good 10-15 minutes to clean them thoroughly. I'm afraid I'm damaging the brushes and wonder how long before I'll need to replace them. By the way, I wash the dirt container and the filter (but not the brushes) under the kitchen tap, and let it air dry before putting it back in the machine. Anyone know if that's harmful? Oh, another nuisance although unavoidable: picking up all the pet toys and electric cords lying on the carpet, then putting them back afterwards. One final thing: Arte does its work so cheerfully, never complains, doesn't mind being told to go back over an area again, and I am grateful for the Sound noise that tell me what's wrong when the Arte suddenly stops, because it's trapped somewhere and can't get out, or its brushes need cleaning, or whatever.

Incredible suction! Finally! This awesome little vacuum has given me the edge in the war against pet hair! I'm the owner of 3 cats and a dog, and this vacuum has cut my floor cleaning time in half. Great on my rugs, hardwood floors, tile, and laminate! I'm so glad I no longer have to drag out the broom and dust pan! I can just keep vacuuming from one surface to the next, and I can reach my whole house from one centrally-located outlet! It has also worked great for a quick clean-up of white dog hair on my dark brown bonded leather sofas. This is the first canister vac I've owned, but it's so much easier to maneuver than my old bulky up-right vac...I now have no plans to ever own another up-right! I am happy enough with it overall to give it 5 stars, although I do have a few critiques: As others have mentioned, the cord keeper on the bottom is not terribly convenient, but not awful either - I can definitely deal with it. I'm glad it came with 2 bags because I looked for the required size before it arrived, and couldn't find them locally...Will have to order them online, which is a bit of an inconvenience. I wish the floor sweeper attachment was just a bit wider/bigger to cover more area, but the additional attachments included are great for cleaning fan blades, blinds, etc. And lastly, I notice that the plastic of the hose and the attachments is charged in such a way that pet hair sticks to it like a magnet...I end up having to vacuum a large amount of dog hair off the floor attachment when I'm done vacuuming my rugs, but that's not really a bad thing since it means I'm getting up even MORE pet hair! I can't imagine that anyone would be disappointed with this great little vacuum!
