I have seen the 650 on sale at Canadian Tire for $350.

For a secondary vacuum device (we already have a Dyson), I am not going to pay more than $250 for this. I missed out on the $199 Costco Black Friday deal for the 540 but I am sure it will come back again.

I don't think the Neato or Roomba can replace your main vacuum device (Bisson, Dyson or central vac). The suction is not exceptionally strong and if you have pets/area rugs with tassels and/or your SO sheds a lot of hairs, you can't count on the Roomba/Neato to do an adequate job.

With all that said, I still like the convenience of the Roomba (I bought a Neato earlier but it's too noisy for my wife's liking) and will keep an eye out for any sub $250 deals before pulling the trigger.
Please contact for $-saving tips prior to purchasing Mattamy/Monarch homes in Ottawa.

Amazon.ca has the Neato XV-11 on sale for 25% off right now. http://www.amazon.ca/Neato-XV-11-Roboti ... 211&sr=8-1

It can easily replace your home vacuum. I have one on each floor of my house (with no pets). You just schedule it to run more or less often, depending on how clean it must be. It does require minimal effort, though. You have to empty the dustbin once every couple weeks. I actually have one XV-11 and one XV-21 (I think that's the right model number, it's the new one).
