Designed to meticulously clean floors on a daily basis, the Neato XV-15 Robotic Vacuum Cleaner covers all of your floors, smartly seeing and working around furniture, stairs and more. The simple user interface allows you to schedule the XV-15 to clean your rooms while you are away.
everything in the room and avoids bumping
into walls, furniture, and other objects.
Neato's laser-based navigation system gives the robotic vacuum a full 360-degree view of a room so it can create a map of the room, detecting walls, doorways, furniture and other obstacles. Using its map, the Neato XV-15 avoids most obstacles that other robots can only detect by impact. Just press the Start button and your Neato determines the best cleaning path to clean the floors using its unique, methodical straight-line pattern.
Once it finishes cleaning one entire room, the XV-15 drives through one of the "recognized doorways," to start cleaning the next room. With its powerful vacuum suction, it picks up all the dirt, debris and pet hair on your floors. Schedule it to clean every day with just a few button presses, and your home will always have that "just cleaned" look.
Neato is as smart as--sometimes smarter--than a human housekeeper. It sees 360 degrees, maps out your room and then methodically vacuums all of your floor space, carefully avoiding any furniture, obstacles and stairs. Go ahead and rearrange the furniture; Neato will adapt its course without missing a beat.
Additionally, if running low on power, the XV-15 returns to its charging base, recharges and then returns to where it left off, finishing the cleaning job.
The high-performance vacuum inside your robot works in a precise back-and-forth motion, picking up even tiny specks and easily sliding under sofas, tables and beds. It works on all floor types--carpet, rugs, hardwood and tile--so you never have to clean another floor, even in your bathroom..
Just charge it up, press the Start button, and watch it work. Once it's finished in one room, it will begin working in the next--or return automatically to its base for recharging and resume cleaning where it left off. Schedule everyday cleaning with a few simple button presses and your house is always ready for guests, even when you've been out all day.
Some additional innovative features and benefits of the Neato XV-15 all-floor vacuum cleaner include:
- Scuff-free navigation: At the vacuum's core is a centrifugal compression impeller that follows jet engine airflow principles. It creates sustained high-powered suction, allowing the Neato XV-15 to thoroughly pick up dirt and debris.
- Low-profile access: The automatic vacuum cleaner's low profile (less than four inches high) allows it to clean under beds, sofas, and toe-kicks in the kitchen.
- Smart design and large dirt bin: The robot vacuum cleaner's low profile (less than four inches high) allows it to clean under beds, sofas, and toe-kicks in the kitchen.
- Self-docking to re-power: After completing its cleaning, it returns automatically to its base to re-charge itself. By utilising the charging base, the robot is charged and ready to go when it's needed most
- Cleaning scheduler: With its easy-to-use interface, consumers can schedule the robot to clean every day, resulting in a more spotless home. The automatic vacuum cleaner's low profile (less than four inches high) allows it to clean under beds, sofas, and toe-kicks in the kitchen.

The packaging certainly has a reassuring quality to it and the way you change the lead for UK use/cord tidy is very clever. It also came with 7 spare filters (also available on amazon) and a spare cleaning brush.
Unfortunately we had to wait for it to charge up before trying it which seem to take weeks, but actually only took a couple of hours. The operation/display is very intuitive and contrary to one negative review I read, which stated when setting the time you could only adjust the time forwards (so if you missed the time you had to go around again), the up/down buttons both work fine - this may have been an earlier software quirk.
A clever feature is that if it looses contact with its charger (which can also be plugged directly in like a mobile phone) it shuffles back on the charger - ensuring it always charges. It is quite fun moving it off its charing station slightly just to see this in operation ! One thing not made clear in the manual is that it defaults to "LED's off", so after a few minutes of charging, nothing is displayed and nothing is lit on the neato which led me to think that it was faulty - it isn't, just go to the options and change the LED setting if you want the reassurance that it is charging. Another clever feature is that it tells you when it has enough charge for a clean (flashing green) but not yet fully charged (solid green).
Once charged, I decided to start with a spot clean. This is the first option and can be easily started by simply pressing the select button.Read more ›
It is going to be a real time-waster because I spent the whole evening following it around, my mouth half-open in amazement. Watching it march under the front of the sofas I thought it would be bound to get stuck and need rescuing. Not at all: it ventured where no-one has gone (much) before and in due time came marching out again. It even coped with one nook where it could only go straight in and straight out again. Watching it hitch up and down to extricate itself from some difficult spaces added to my astonishment.
It did have a problem in a small bedroom with numerous small areas of carpeting. I suspect it needs to get the measure of the room by being launched from its docking station in there rather than in the next room . Seeing it march on to the next room when it has finished with the previous one is also remarkable, as is watching it taxi home on completion of its work.)
Admittedly, I cleared absolutely everything out of its path, as I would for a serious 'spring clean', so it had an 'easy' run. But it was completely astonishing to see it cope with the place. A tougher test will be to leave most things (lamps, small items of furniture) where they are and see how it copes.
When it comes to suction power the jury is out. Maybe it is no Dyson but that would not be helped by the fact that the dust container is very small, as all the reviews note. That said, Neato performed well in rooms with rather less dust and covered a lot of ground without needing emptying. In one - rarely vacuumed - room it had a tough time toward the end of its run but I simply ran it again after emptying the dust container.Read more ›

Jan 2013: My Neato is going strong, the Battery life has deteriorated a little but as it recharges and then continues this is not a major problem and was expected. This week there was a new software update (connect your Neato with a USB lead to your PC) which has done wonders for the cleaning up into the corners. Still recommend this product without hesitation. (PS I could only get the update to work on my old XP PC not the windows 7 & 8 ones I tried first for some reason)

Cleans like a teenager: edges, corners are not important, sometimes misses a room.
On the other hand, it does a very good job where it vacuums.
