With a black and yellow lab in our household, we had dog hair galore! Floor dusting was an endless chore, and everyone in the family claimed they did it last! My son was to the point where he just couldn't take it any more, lol. He decided it was time for a helper. He conducted months of research comparing robotic vacuums. He looked at motor size, fill capacity, ease of operation, cost of the unit, how much maintenance it required as well as customer reviews. He completed his research just in time to order Neato for Mother's Day. Neato arrived a week early, but my husband and son were so excited that they couldn't wait, so they opened the box and took less than 20 minutes to set up the whole thing. After charging, Neato set out in search of dust and dog hair. He even ventured under beds that hadn't been moved since last summer! Although he emerged a little dusty, he was successful. Neato can navigate on our tile and laminate floors with ease, and does just as well on my high pile carpet in the bedroom. Every once in a while, he was getting himself stuck under the metal bar under our bed sometimes, so we placed a small block of wood in that spot and he navigates around it now, so he no longer has that problem. We usually pick up shoes and the like before we leave the house so Neato can do his thing with minimal challenges, but if we forget, he just navigates around them without a problem. When his dust bin gets full, he will politely ask to be emptied, and he thanks us when we do so, lol! I don't know how we lived without him all this time. We love him so much, that we have decided to buy more for our parents and married kids as Christmas gifts! If you are contemplating a maid service or this product, I highly recommend Neato. You could only afford a maid 3 or 4 times for the cost of owning Neato forever! Excellent buy.
