Filter appears to be shorter than brand name filter. When it was installed it fell out on its own as it will not stay locked in place on its own. I am now in the market for a new vacuum.
My neighbor bought a similar product and I laughed at her for spending over $300 for a robot vacuum cleaner. Two or three days later when I visited, her floors never looked so good!! Then I went home and found myself sweeping the floor again. I do it every night, sometimes more than once. I have two dogs and a cat, and my backyard where the dogs play is not grass but just pine straw over dirt. You can imagine what I track into the house with every visit outside multiple times a day. So I buckled and bought Bob, the Bob sweep pet hair model. I thought my house is pretty clean. But after that first day as Bob ran under the bed and under the furniture and into the corners etc, his a large dustbin was filled to the brim with cat hair and assorted debris from places I can't ever get to. I was amazed. I ran him three days in a row and of course there was slightly less hair and dirt each time he made his rounds. On the fourth day I decided to give him a day off and properly wet wash my laminate and tile floors. The place looks great! He comes with remote control; easily cleans out after every use, & not unattractive to look at :-) and this particular model was at least $100 cheaper than other brands with which I am familiar. He also has a mop option that I have not used yet. He comes with cleaning tool, extra roller and brush, and very well written instructions. Buy this thing, he will be a fine addition to your household! ***ADDENDUM!!** Bob was so great; maybe I took him for granted. One day he started acting funny, confused, forgot his routine. Went slow, as if aging poorly. I contacted customer service who IMMEDIATELY responded to my concerns. I was directed by staff to a series of "fixes" to try, which I did over the next few days. All the while I was getting e-messages from BobSweep staff asking, "How's it going? Any more questions?" as if they were his personal doctors... Long story short-- but READ THIS-- although Bob was a few days or more AFTER his 2-year Warranty had expired, the company-- knowing my problems began BEFORE the warranty ran out-- REPLACED BOB WITH A BRAND NEW BobSweep Pet Hair at minimal cost to me for handling/shipping. BRAND NEW!! He is called "Bob, Junior" at my house and is cleaning like a young with energy and zest. He finds miniscule dust, dander, dirt and PET HAIR that's invisible to my eyes, and which a BROOM could never get. I think that's because he was "raised right," by careful and loving "parents" who are proud of their creations and happy to monitor them throughout their "life." If you need MORE than a robo vacuum -- one that comes with TLC-- get Bob. I love him! (updated Feb. 28, 2018)
