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.
