It's all in the title.
I would disagree.

for those that don't know(like me) This is a robotic vacuum, a Roomba clone

Thanks for adding the image, and clarification. But it's not a Roomba clone, it's a different animal. Don't insult it like this, you're gonna hurt its feelings.

It's smarter than a Roomba in my opinion, at least the one I tried (Roomba 540). This one goes around furniture instead of bumping into them.

It uses a LiDAR sensor and advanced mapping technologies to map out your room while it is going around.

It runs in straight lines to vacuum the room instead of random direction cleaning.

The only disadvantages I can see right now that people are complaining are:

* Getting stuck under objects like couches.
* Battery issues. Always keep it charged or the NiMH battery will not last. Some faulty batteries from the manufacturer.
* Noiser than Roomba.
* Small waste disposal bin.
* The looks of the unit. Not that it matters much for most people.

I always wanted a Neato XV14...wait, wtf is that? :)

Thanks for posting, but don't assume people would know the product.
To be or not to be...where is the question?

I got this thing a month ago when it was last onsale at Costco. I have an 1100 square foot condo.

* Getting stuck under objects is annoying, slightly re-arranging furniture I've dealt with this ok at best. That is probably the biggest pain with this robot.
* Battery, I'm not sure how long it is supposed to last, mine goes for about 1 hour, which sucks because it can't manage to finish the last room in my place. I actually didn't even know this for the first couple weeks because it's actually smart enough to go back to its home recharge and then go back out and finish where it left off. I typically run it during the day while I am work, so I just come home and more often then not he is done and charging at his home.
* I don't know what the Roomba is like but this thing isn't load compared to a normal vacuum, it doesn't bother me when I have run him when I am home
* You'll want to empty for sure after 2nd clean, although I usually do after each clean
* He looks better in person, but yeah, not as sleek as the Roomba.

Nah, it's cool no worries. The other guys got on my nerves...a little. Like I just wanna karate chop their a$$.

Hey wait a second, I just noticed that you ARE the other guy. lol. Oh well...

Anyways, you guys need to be nice to the newbies. Not everyone spends hours on this site, and knows the ins and outs of every feature.

The keyword here is "NICE". Santa is watching you!

Step 1, be rude and profane with other posters.

Step 2, tell said other poster to be more nice to others.
