The Neato XV-21 Automatic Vacuum Cleaner is specially designed for pet owners and allergy sufferers. With the most powerful suction of any robot vacuum, the XV-21 picks up dirt, debris, and even the toughest pet hair. The Neato XV-21′s special filter retains more than three times the amount of fine dust particles as standard filters, which is perfect for removing allergens from the home. A new combination bristle and blade brush improves the pick-up of pet hair, dander and fibers.Before use, it has to fully charge. Back it up to the charging station and it will be amber when not charged, blinking green when it isn't fully charged but can still run, and completely green when it is ready to go. The charger must me about 3 ft away from any objects or side walls.
When ready, there are several options. You can clean the whole house, spot clean one area, schedule a cleaning for later, or block off a certain area for cleaning. When first setting up the vacuum, I entered the time so that I could schedule a cleaning. The vacuum is a little noisy(just as any other vacuum is), so it is great to schedule it when we aren't home. If I simply hit the start button, it will start cleaning the whole house.
Here is what is in the box-
- Neato XV-21 Robot Vacuum
- Charging Station Charging Cable
- 6’ Boundary Marker
- 2 Brushes
- 1 Filter
The vacuum scans the room and has sensors to let it know that it is hitting something, so it turns around and doesn't get stuck. It goes back and forth in lines so that it doesn't miss any part of my floor. It also tells me on the screen if it has any issues. Sometimes it will tell me to empty the dirt bin or it will get a wheel stuck. There is only one spot in my house that it gets stuck and it tells me to "clear the path". I have started rolling out the boundary marker in that spot so it knows not to go there.
My house is all one level, so I never have to vacuum anymore. The Neato Automatic Vacuum cleans all the surfaces in my house. It does the hardwoods, rugs, and carpet in the kids' rooms. I was worried that it would get stuck when it gets to my rugs, but it doesn't. It gets right up on the rug and keeps vacuuming. If the battery starts to die before it cleans my whole house, it will go back to the charging station and pick up where it left off once charged again.
I couldn't be more happy with this Automatic Vacuum. It has a very powerful suction that gets all the dust and debris on my floors. Just look how much it picks up! I don't have pets indoors, but the filters make it where no fine dust escapes. Most of this is from a new rug that is "shedding" like crazy!
