Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Easy to use
You only need to turn the robot on and choose one of the three programs according to the size of the area you want to clean (on the spot, under 270 sq. ft or over 270 sq. ft.). The robot detects obstacles and stairs automatically, and thus, doesn't require supervision.
Pro Beautiful and functional design
The housing of the robot is made out of durable red plastic. It has a soft rubber bumper that reduces the impact for both the robot and the furniture it hits. It also minimizes the noise from bumping. The unit is just 3 .5 inches tall, so it shouldn't have any problem cleaning under your furniture.
Pro Thorough, multiple-stage cleaning procedure
The robot has a three-part cleaning mechanism which includes a side brush for cleaning walls and corners, rotating brushes in the center for solid particles and dander, and a vacuum to clean up dust and hair.
Pro Great entry-level robot
For a very small price - about 100 pounds, this robot offers fairly decent cleaning.
Pro Can clean carpets
The robot has a powerful vacuum that can clean debris from short-pile carpets.
Pro Runs relatively quietly
The loudest this robot gets is 63 dB, which is only half as noisy as a regular vacuum.
Pro Convenient handle for picking up
A handle on top of the robot makes it very convenient to pick up the device to carry into another room or extract the dust bin.
Con Very small bin capacity
The total capacity of the dust bin is only 8 ounces, so you will have to empty it a couple of times per week.

To charge this robot, you have to find it, bring it to the socket, and manually plug in the charging cable.
Con It takes a long time to recharge
Recharging takes about 4-5 hours.
Con No battery charge indicator
You'll only know that this robot is out of charge when it stops dead in its tracks.
Con Battery life often diminishes severely after several months of use
Although the run time stated on the box is 80 minutes, in many instances it decreases severely after no more than three months of regular use.
