Summary: This product is great for folks who simply don’t have time in their busy schedules to vacuum frequently enough to maintain the cleanliness of their homes. This would be great if you have a large home with open spaces because it works best in these areas.
Pros: Good run time, Excellent dirt pick up capabilities, It can be programmed to clean at a scheduled time, Automatically goes back to its charging station when battery is low, Cleans with a back and forth overlapping motion, Firmware can be upgraded through a USB port, Easy to remove brush roll, Easy...
Cons: Noisy, Can’t reach corners because of the absence of an edge brush, No edge cleaning brush, Small dirt bin that needs to be emptied frequently, RPS sensors have to be cleaned regularly so that it doesn’t get “lost”, No remote
Summary: The Neato XV-21 (known in Europe as the XV-25) is near the top of the list of my favorite robot vacuum cleaners. It’s easy to use, thorough, and intelligent – and watching it work is actually fun, knowing I don’t have to.
Summary: The XV-21 is a great all-around robot vacuum and a viable Roomba alternative, but among Neatos, we'll stick with the brainier, similarly priced XV Signature Pro.
Pros: With its specialty brushroll, the Neato XV-21 picks up pet hair better than any other robot vacuum we've tested.
Cons: Like all Neatos, the XV-21 isn't as feature rich as the average robot vacuum, lacking a remote control and customizable cleaning modes. It also isn't quite as smart a navigator as its newer siblings, the XV Signature Pro and the XV Essential.
