A number of different companies supply robotic vacuum cleaners. Therefore, you must carefully select a particular brand. Let's see what Neato has to offer consumers.
To start the review, it's worth looking at the flagship version - Neato Botvac D7 Connected . A similar model is suitable for any gender. She also has the ability to work for a long time. Management is carried out both using buttons and via Wi-Fi. The advanced lower brush not only cleans the floor efficiently, but also works without any noise.
Metal inserts placed on the housing increase its strength. Directly from the smartphone, you can set virtual boundaries and direct the robot in one direction or another. A pair of replaceable filters is included in the package of delivery. And not just filters, but devices that hold small specks of dust. A double-pass function has been implemented, which allows you to restore the best order.
The developers tried to improve laser scanning and optimize the algorithm for constructing virtual cards. Such innovations can increase the accuracy of orientation. The total area of the floor to be cleaned reaches 450 square meters. m
Thanks to the powerful front-wheel drive, the vacuum cleaner easily passes thresholds and drives onto carpets. The side brush is made with five blades.
Other characteristics are as follows:
- 4200 mAh battery;
- typical petal brush;
- 1.8 m network cable;
- petal-bristle brush;
- another brush for side cleaning;
- bounding marker included.
If you need not a flagship, but simply an effective model with a significant runtime, you need to choose a Neato Botvac D5 Connected robot vacuum cleaner. This unit has a very simple and elegant control. The delivery kit includes a bristle-petal brush. It helps to clean not only smooth floors, but also carpets. An especially gentle cleaning mode is provided to help clean up the room with fragile items.
The Ultra Perfomance filter allows even very small dust particles to be retained. There is a double pass, which helps to improve the quality of cleaning. As in the previous version, modern methods of laser scanning of space are used. Using a vacuum cleaner, you can clean up to 420 square meters. m. The sound volume during operation is 70 dB. The duration of the cleaning session is up to 2 hours. The company gives a guarantee of up to 12 months. The dry weight of the product is 3.35 kg. The device is recommended for restoring order in large apartments and private houses.
Neato D3 Connected is a robotic vacuum cleaner suitable for regular cleaning in small spaces. The brushes are the same as in previous models. As befits a high-tech device, there are high-quality mobile applications. They allow you to access the maximum number of functions at any distance. The filter meets all standards, as necessary, it must only be cleaned in a dry way. A modest looking gray case hides a completely adequate and modern "filling". The total cleaning area reaches 160 square meters. m. This version is not equipped with a side brush. The battery capacity is 2100 mAh. There is no limit marker.
Botvac D85 - a model of a vacuum cleaner designed for cleaning various hairs. It is recommended to be used in homes where there are pets with any length of coat. The device differs from other versions in the most complete set. The latest generation filter is three times more efficient than traditional filters. A two-meter limit marker is included.
Botvac D85 is designed so that even after prolonged use, scratches are almost invisible. Judging by the reviews, the geometry of the robot reduces the risk of stuck. The design characteristics of the model are evaluated positively, as well as the reasonableness of the design. Even if the vacuum cleaner is forced to “park” in the base crookedly, the charging efficiency does not drop. It should be noted that remote recognition of obstacles makes any object reflecting radiation an insurmountable barrier.
In comparison with similar products of other companies, the vacuum cleaner performs well. Although sometimes not the first time (according to test results), it cleans the floor. iClebo Arte, for example, is incapable of this, and leaves up to 25% of the dirt, and Clever & Clean - up to 8%.
Orienteering devices Neato also deserve the highest ratings.
As you can see, this manufacturer produces a solid, meeting all modern requirements equipment. Vacuum cleaners are clearly distributed in niches - each for its own field of application . But in order to choose the right model, you need to consider the basic requirements for such units. And also discard fairly common myths. So, do not assume that the robot vacuum cleaner will take care of all the house cleaning.
Mechanisms without side brushes are not suitable for cleaning corners. If you have to clear many hard-to-reach areas, this parameter must be kept in mind. The absence of ultraviolet lamps is typical for any model of Neato and other leading manufacturers. And rightly so - there is no evidence that this device really helps fight infection. But the harm of ultraviolet radiation is beyond doubt.
- pay attention to the area that can be cleaned in one session;
- take into account the height of the overcome thresholds;
- to buy vacuum cleaners with capacious dust collectors only for large apartments or dwellings where there are pets.
