Summary: loved this little hard working machine at first. Gotta clean it out a lot, and rescue it from tight spaces. When the side spinning brush stopped working after two weeks I decided it had to go back. Amazon and it's great customer service made that easy.
Summary: I have 4 dogs and 6 cats so fur is rampant. Luckily we have tile. I bought this item to help between vacuuming. It doesn't work very well: it turns to the right only. What is it? A Republican? Then it doesn't pick up nearly enough fur and forget kitty litter! It ignores it to the best of it's ability. Sorry I spent all that money and would recommend to anyone interested to save their money and buy a better one. Taking it to Goodwill.
Summary: Overall a good product. Does have it's limitations but for someone, such as myself, that has pets, it is a good purchase. Does a good job at getting the pet hair off the main floor and under the end tables. Also great at entertaining the animals, or should I say the humans watching the animals. One other advantage is my kids now love using it to clean the floors in their rooms.
Summary: I got this hoping it would free up some time for me. It does not. it spends about 60% of it's run time stuck, or attempting to navigate the same 3sqft chunk of room. It has trouble climbing onto rugs, going in straight lines, keeping a charge, keeping guests entertained (let's face it, at least 10% of the reason you're looking at stuff like this is that you want to show it off,) or picking up bits of string.
Summary: I love this thing! It is perfect for a home with primarily hard wood or tile floors. We have two cats who don't shed that much, but I'm amazed at the cat hair it picks up. The price is right and it does the job. I use it for the vacuuming in between big cleanings. I am surprised with the amount of dirt and cat hair in the container each time I run it. The noise is not that bad and you get used to it (my husband and I both work from home).
Summary: Read all the reviews and decided to purchase this for the value and the fact that it will only be used on tile, no rugs or carpets. It does a great job at picking up after three short haired dogs and a man's dirty boots. The dust container is small but the price is worth cleaning it out mid session if needed.
Summary: So after reading all of the bad reviews, I was hesitant to buy this. I am a business owner and work constantly, so cleaning the house is more time consuming for me. I've had this for a few days, and if it keeps working the way it does, it will pay for itself. I turned it on, left the room, and came back to find a dustbin full of dust and light debris. It really cleaned well.
