Product Description

Tired of vacuuming? Is cleaning up always the last thing on your to do list and it never gets done? Maybe you just don't enjoy vacuuming!

This innovative Vacuum Robot solves all these problems and does your vacuuming for you! This nifty robotic vacuum cleaner automatically cleans your floors and recharges its power without you ever having to lift a finger. So, how does this household cleaning marvel work we hear you ask?

First of all it sweeps up your floor with it's integrated counter rotating bristle brushes and beater brush that work together to release all the dust and dirt that have accumulated in your floor since the last clean. Then the powerful vacuum sucks all dirt into it's storage compartment leaving your floors and carpets super clean. You can program the robotic vacuum to clean at a desired time, and it's object sensors mean it will not get stuck in corners or fall down the stairs.

Not only does the Robot Vacuum Cleaner intelligently redirect itself after hitting walls or obstacles, but it also comes with one (IR) infrared virtual wall so you can limit where the robotic vacuum cleaner can go. This is perfect if you want to keep it from wandering into the next room for example. It also comes complete with it's own charging station, and the robot vacuum will automatically find the charging station to recharge when it starts to run low on power. It even has a mop feature on its bottom so that it can mop kitchen floors etc..

Improvements over last years robotic vacuum cleaner model include: A touch screen control panel, a UV lamp on its underside to kill bacteria, it's even quieter, has a more powerful and longer lasting battery, smaller in size. Also, all wheels and brush can be taken out very easily when they require cleaning (every few months) and it has increased suction power at 10-15W. 12 month guarantee (subject to acceptable use).

4.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous product for the price 28 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I have had my XR210 robotic vacuum cleaner for about one month and on the whole I have been impressed. It has been used almost every day, although obviously I am not yet in a position to comment on its long-term reliability. I will first address some of the criticisms that the item has received in other reviews.

1) Some people have said that it "ignores" obstacles less than one inch high. This is true and is clearly intentional as otherwise it would not be able to go over rugs, door bars, and other uneven areas of floor. However, it does mean that if you leave items on the floor such as books, lengths of wood, flip-flops, etc, it is liable to try to climb over them. In such cases, it can get itself stuck.

2) Rugs. It can have problems with rugs that have long shaggy pile or tassels, as these will tangle in its mechanisms. Also, if you have floppy rugs (that is to say rugs that are easily folded, like towels, rather than quite rigid like a doormat) then the robot is likely to fold over the edges and move the rug around.

3) Battery life. Somebody said that the UV light significantly reduced the battery life. I did four timed tests to see if this was true, and I found no difference at all in the battery life whether the UV lamp is on or off. I have noticed, however, that the battery lasts longer when the robot is cleaning a smooth laminate floor rather than a capret. Typical cleaning times from a single charge are 2hrs on carpet and 2½hrs on a smooth floor.

4) Small bin. If your floors are really dirty, you will find yourself having to empty the bin very regularly. When my robot first arrived, I had not vacuumed for a few weeks, and within 15 minutes its bin was full and filter clogged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great wee vacuum cleaner 25 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
I have had mine for a couple of weeks now, and can't believe how much dust it picks up from the floor.
I gave the house a clean with my usual Hoover, then started Hoovery and the difference was amazing.
My kids have called it Hoovery, and they always call out his name when they come home. So not only does it do a good job of cleaning, it has now become part of the family.
The battery life is around 2 hours before it puts itself back on charge, which is good enough for down stairs, then the next day I move him upstairs with the virtual wall detector at the top of the stairs.
I would recommend this product to anyone who has a busy life.

We've been using this cleaner for a few weeks now, and once you get to know it's strengths and weaknesses, it is a very useful family addition.

Great points:

> Quite intelligent and doesn't give up easily trying different routes and directions if it comes across a problem ... Easily handles the transitions from floor to rug and new items 'dumped' in the room.
> Good battery life. 2 hours or more before it attempts to goes back to its base to recharge itself.
> Unobtrusive, and not too noisy. You can easily have it on when in the house though probably best not used overnight.
> Can program it to switch on at a certain time of day for any day or days of the week
> A bit quirky and fun, the kids love it.

Not so great points:

> Needs emptying most days (Normal family of five)
> Has an 'obsession' with certain corners and areas, going over the same area maybe 10 times or more, but other areas it only does once, and sometimes not at all.
> Fairly slow: Takes around 2 hours to do our downstairs rooms and the hall (About 700sq.ft) ...though I guess that's not an issue if you're out!
> Takes a little while to get accustomed to what it can and can't do ... for example it obsessively tries to 'mount' the foot pedal on my daughter's drum-kit (Tries for 10 minutes or more)
> Doesn't handle long tussles on the end of one our rugs...we've folded them under our rug but this might be a show-stopper if you don't want to do that.

Overall, this is a great little inexpensive product and although I wouldn't sell our upright cleaner, it's use is now limited to the more disastrous spillages or post-party clear-ups.... and of course the stairs!

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT VALUE FOR THE MONEY - LOVE IT 31 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
Fantastic little gizmo. I haven't tried pre-programming it yet but intend to do that this weekend. The instructions are quite difficult to understand but I'm sure it just takes a little bit of time to get through them. Herbie (yes he has a name) seems quite happy just to poodle around the house cleaning the bits he can get to. Occasionally he get's stuck under a chair and takes multiple attempts to get out but with over 2 hours cleaning time in his battery even if he spends 10 minutes getting out of a tight space it still leaves him plenty of time to get around all the rooms. Yes you still have to do the corners yourself but I have found with having all hard floors that he doesn't raise the dust in the same way as if you were brushing it yourself or vacuuming with a traditional vacuum cleaning so apart from the corners he probably gets more of the dust up than other methods. Yes you do have to make sure that there are no trailing cables or tassles from throws and long hair gets wrapped around his brushes but it's only the stuff you would move yourself when you were vacuuming anyway its just you have look around and think about anything that he might get caught up in. Haven't used the barrier yet to stop throwing himself downstairs yet because of the cost of the batteries so but up temporary barriers at the top of my stairs to stop him. Love watching him at the end of his "shift" finding his way back to his docking station! Great value for money and makes sure that your floors look good all the time.

Pretty simple to use its basic features and seems to do a good job, even on carpet covered in pet hair. Best to run it every few days so that hair doesn't build up. Read more
