2.0 out of 5 stars was it worth all that money ?, 2 Feb 2013
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.
