This robot does an amazing job! It will run around the house and clean while you watch TV or just sit around and watch the robot cleaning! I love it! Just plug it in to charge and unplug it and push the buttons so that it can start working. People are always skeptical about the robotic vacuum until they see how clean my floors are. Several of my friends and family have bought one and have been happy. Even my set-in-her-ways, anti-technology granny uses and loves hers. You won't be disappointed with this robot.
