Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vorwerk Kobold Robot Vacuum Cleaner VR100
no, it really wasn't .. unless you were about to hire a cleaner because carrying the henry upstairs has become too much, like me, or are allergic to dust etc yet have 2 cats and make wigs for a living, like me.
the previous model [roomba] broke within a year ,needed replacement bits and then gave up, it's tiny dust container and entangled brushes a source of irritation before giving it to a charity to repair and sell. it has taken me 2 years to try again
this one looks more robust , has a large top loading bin which is huge improvement on a daily basis , and copes with my uneven floors and heavy carpets with gusto, unlike the old machine but . already bits are dropping off [ lost cover of a sensor] and i have a tiny spare silver disc / washer from somewhere within ] , the brushes are really fiddly to return to the belt and clear of hair / cotton and the revolving side brush [ why is there only one?] needs constant attention or just doesn't move.
yes it does a great job every day and i'm not sending it back now i've had it a month, but the cost!

Brenda! Send it back and buy a Neato XV-15. Look at the photos, they are identical construction and layout, but the Neato is half the price. We've used one for about 4 months and it is fantastic. Mike

No it isnt the same. Other battery, other filter and no side brush. The same is only the case, dimension and the software.

if it is still broken I would be interested in buying for spare parts.
