What more could you want from a pet? the Arte is a very effective hunter of lint, hair, and other small bits of debris. Just last week my little "cleebo" caught an exceptionally large dust bunny!

The mess the 5 kids leaves is really no mess so far for this poor little guy. He had amazed me with how well it cleans.. AND YES he's like a little pet. He went under the couch the other night and sounded like it was having fun, when it came out from under the couch pushing and chasing a ball one of the kids lost. As for durability we haven't had it for very long but it does seem to be solid. The out of the box appearance was just as you'd expect a futuristic robot to look like. But I tell ya after about the second night, he looked like he'd been cleaning a dirt road. We are gonna start taking a baby wipe to him every couple days. I did find him this morning dead in the middle of the room, he didn't make it back to the charging station. OH AND DID I MENTION IT IS MESMERIZING TO WATCH... I hope the new wears off soon I'm loosing sleep.

I wish it weren't so expensive because I would buy everyone I love one of these. It is so nice to come home and the vacuuming is done. I have hardwood floors and area rugs and it cleans both well. I also love how close it will get to walls too. Great edge cleaning. It has had quite a workout as I have a new wool rug which has been shedding alot. I know it is getting the job done because everyday after work I empty the dust tray and it is full. It is not super loud so I don't even mind when it runs when I'm home. In fact, I like to see where it goes and how it tackles any transitions in flooring. Programming and self docking for recharging....fantastic!!!!Everything should be like my roomba. Worth every penny to me.

Love this product, easy setup, easy use. Got adopted by a cat a few months ago and knew that my cleaning time would go up. The iClebo Arte got to work immediately bumping away at the (mostly) tile floor. I understood at once why so many reviews use the word "love" as a description... it's a genuinely useful piece of artificial intelligence. The kitty was not happy at first, but after a few hours followed it around was a curious face. Now they're best pals... though I don't see her riding it any time soon. It does navigate randomly (which may take some mental adjustment if you're in the room) but it cleans up very well and parks itself like Meadow Soprano when its done. Cleaning the robo-critter is a cinch. The noise is about a third as loud as a Dustbuster. It got hung up only once this past month on a shower rug that should have been removed before I pressed "Clean." Its knack for navigating over chords and wires is unreal. The robot itself is worth the big bucks: A vanity device that makes your life easier!

Got adopted by a cat a few months ago and knew that my cleaning time would go up. Saw Jesse Pinkman had a Robot Vacuum Cleaner on Breaking Bad and started doing research on the little gadgets. After a few days I was convinced that the iclebo arte model was worth a go given my situation... I have a house with tile, hardwood and 2 flat rugs. It does navigate randomly (which may take some mental adjustment if you're in the room) but it cleans up very well and parks itself like Meadow Soprano when its done. Cleaning the robo-critter is a cinch. The noise is about a third as loud as a Dustbuster.

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.

my mom has the robo vacuum cleaner and we love it! We even named her. She is part of the family. I have hardwood floors and was hoping the mop would sweep everything up and then mop as well as the vacuum does. But I guess with us having 5 animals in the house a dust mop could not do the trick for what we needed. We will be purchasing the robo vacuum too. We just have to think of a good name for her.

I love this machine it did great the first day but then seemed to get confused so I had to downlead the software update from the website and that seemed to take care of the navigation problems and it was able to find it's way back to the home base. My house floors look cleaner.

Its a great vac. once you set on a schedule it works great. But it will get stuck on shoe strings!

Springtime with a Malemute should say it all. I have all hardwood floors with a few painted canvas rugs. I use it daily for fur and dog foot dirt maintenance. It works great with the fur and sand. I do pull the chairs away from the dining table to give it room to maneuver and keep itself oriented in the space. I have noticed that it is important to clean the wheels per the instructions, the fur wraps around the axles and starts to constrict their use. Overall I am very pleased as it works as advertised and does what I bought it for.

I vacuum almost every other day now; its fun instead of a chore. This thing is remarkable, no cords, no pushing. If it gets stuck, it calls me. I have to empty it every time, but even that is fascinating, to see how much dirt and dust bunnies are picked up. I used to vacuum once a month at best; now i feel better about myself and my condo. I read or go on the computer while it zips around, have a cup of coffee, and live in a cleaner environment.

I started a new job recently that's over an hour from home. My floors were being really neglected, and it was stressing me out to no end. I'd made fun of these little gadgets in the past but was finally willing to give ones shpt. I did quite a bit of research and specifically selected this one because of the programming feature. Overall, this was an amazing purchase. Does it do as good of a job as i could with my full size? Probably not. The difference is that I don't have time to run the big guy every day, but I can use this one daily. That makes a huge difference. This little guy also gets in places my big one can't (or at least not easily), gliding under the bed and couch. Because of this, I've noticed a pretty big improvement in my allergies. My only complaint is that I could have saved the money and bought the slightly cheaper model since i never use the programming feature. We have a coffee table with a round metal base, and the Roomba climbs up on it and gets stuck (sometimes leaving ugly gauges in the metal... Thank goodness it's supposed to look distressed anyway, otherwise I'd be pretty upset). In order to resolve it, I have to wrap blankets around the base so that Roomba "thinks" it's taller than it is and doesn't try to roll roll over it. That's kind of a pain, so I generally run it while I'm getting ready in the morning or at night when I'm cooking dinner or reading. It's not a terrible amount of noise when you're watching TV, but it can get on your nerves. Glad to have been able to buy this on Overstock! Price is about the same as other places, but with a coupon, my O Club rewards, and the shipping discount, I got a pretty great deal!

We moved into our home two years ago with two cats. We now have three. It's 1100 square feet (I think) and all wood floors. Which means for the first year and a half I swept almost every day. I kept little dust pans around the house and felt like it was a never ending process and it still never seemed clean. Hair was everywhere. So I decided to trade the cats for my Arte. Just kidding! We kept the cats and put this on our wedding registry. The cats even kind of like it and follow it around. I've never seen anything cooler than this - and I'm not a boring person! The box of collected hair/dirt is pretty big and if you use the robot on a regular basis you don't have to empty it with every use (though, I do). It can be programmed to start at a certain time daily but I just use it every few days. It does such a great job. It hops up onto thick carpets, has sensors to keep it from bumping into the pet water fountain (you shouldn't let it get wet), rubber edging, a tongue that comes out to get the corners clean!!, and if it gets caught on something it reverses and untangles itself. This is THE BEST GIFT IDEA for someone with pets, or an elderly person that has a hard time cleaning floors regularly. Honestly, it'd be good for anyone!

The only drawback I have with the machine, is my cat. He follows machine arround and thinks its a toy for him. Other than that, it works as advertised.

it is really helpful for daily cleaning! very useful. it will clean almost all area if you give enough time to him. the most important is I saved a lot to buy it here!

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!!!!!

So I got my Arte a few days ago and he is amazing! I usually don't like writing reviews but I decided to make an exception here. Once I learned how to set it up, everything just flowed. I love how he goes over my rugs without hesitation, my previous robot vacuum couldn't handle it. I'm getting a second unit for the upstairs, and I read on their website that a smart version is coming out soon. I can't wait!!!

I was excited to see this product on sale. I was anxious all day for it to arrive from UPS. I was like a kid on Christmas because I HATE HATE HATE sweeping/mopping my entire first floor. I got the package and thought, the packaging looks rough and cut open. "Oh well," I think. I open the box and start to take things out of the box to find that this is OBVIOUSLY a refurbished product. While I do not have an issue with refurb products, this was NOT advertised as one. In the same purchased, I happily bought a refurb dyson because my old refurb'ed dyson died after 8 years! When a refurbished product is cheaper, why not get one? But this was not cheaper. The sale price has NO value for a refurbished product. I can take my 20% coupon that *** sends to me every other week and buy a brand spanking new product for *** more (I also used a *** off coupon from *** - without the coupon, it is cheaper at ***). Here's another thing, there is hair stuck in the wheels. This product has been used and not cleaned. I do not have faith that it was properly refurbished either. It looks like someone used it, got annoyed with it, and sent it back to overstock. I probably got the person who didn't like how it got stuck on wires returned product. Needless to say, I will be returning this product, taking my *** coupon to *** and getting the brand spanking new product from their store. Thanks.... for nothing.

This vacuum has super suction! I have been pleasantly surprised. I have owned this iclebo for 4 months now and in the many times that I have emptied the dust bin I have found: (Cereal, Staples, Dry Cat food, and even Dimes) However the strength can also reek havoc with loose cords, shoe strings, and even long carpet fiber. Be warned and take the few extra minutes to straighten out those types of things! I don't typically enjoy vacuuming. Who really does I guess. This iclebo has helped greatly and cut my vacuum time spent.

I love this product!! We have wood and slate floors and two kittens. There is a good amount of hair from the kittens. The robot, we named it Dobby does a great job of picking this up. We run it on sweep but dampen the cloth before loading it on the pad and away it goes. The mopping cycle does a good job as well. We have stairs and Dobby senses them and goes around it. With the turbo charger we can clean the upstairs and downstairs in about 4 hours.Can't say enough good about this product.
