Neato XV-11


The best robot vacuum cleaner we've tested. Fast, efficient and clever.

Efficient room coverage ; Good dirt pick up ; Good edge and object tracking ; Easy to use

Leaves 1in unclean border ; Only so powerful ; Still can't clean whole house

The Neato XV-11 is the best robot vacuum cleaner we've ever tested and is reasonably competitively priced. So if you have a sufficiently flat and open plan house, it's a great convenience tool. However, you will still need a manual vac to finish off...

best of the best


I will buy another one when this one wears out.

this thing cleans its little heart out, best purchase on house hold cleaning I have ever made. It takes the work out of vacuuming. All I have to do is empty the little bin at the end of the day and that it, the floor stay clean, we two cats and it...

None that I can tell

Consumer review by:



the battery life is somewhat disappointing when neato spends more time over carpet than over tile or wood, or if it has had frustrating navigation problems. I have begun to make the floors less cluttered, and try to not let cords lay upon the floor in...

Second review: Now after using this as much as possible I am very impressed with how much dust it vacuums from our tile and wood floors, and a small amount of carpeted space, using its combination of squeegee, rotating brush and suction ; My part is to...

It can get lost and unable to return to base, running out of power before making it home, or because the path back to the base is obstructed by a large piece of furniture less than 3 feet from the charging base ; It can return to base saying it needs...

somewhat fortunate purchase, getting a good discounted price and the box came with extra dust filters. Out of about 10 hours of work only got lost once, actually asked me to take it back to its charge base. Also, it will ask you to empty the dust bin...

Meticulous, careful, interested in what it is supposed to be doing--don't tell the president that this thing actually likes to work and do the job it is paid to do, basking now in the praise with which I delight in showering on its work ethic--and it...

It is to my untrusting mind to praise too much just in case it breaksdown or somehow damages something. As I stood next to it once it tried to ride over and suck my bare foot. It is a vacuum cleaner, therefore there is a mechanical sound that is...

Not a good deal


It's expensive and does not work, I wanted it to pick up sand off the floor, it misses most of it, it is forever shutting down due to losing its vision, which means the lasor light gets stuck and won't turn, did this right out of the box, the machine...

The size is nice

Loses it's vision often

not recomended


The vacuum might be ok, but the customer service isn't. The unit I have is less than one year old but is malfunctioning already. It would get stuck in the middle of the room and alarm "Clear my path". Also, the battery is running low after 5 minutes....

Works great but few issues


Had for several weeks now and overall I am happy with it. With 3 kids, 2 dogs and a cat, it's nice to walk around barefoot and not have hair or other items stuck to my feet. Use to get stuck first couple of days, now rarely does. Almost will do my...

Great product


Previously owned a rumba and this product cleans so much better.

Useful tool


I've had mine for 2-3 years now. I recently changed the battery and got the kit for better pet cleanup. I have 4 cats and an Australian Shepherd who seems to be a fur factory. It does not perfectly clean your house but beats cleaning the fur off...

Does 90% of your vacuuming

You still have to clean the spinner and empty the bin

Not As Good As I Expected


I've had it about a week and a half now. It's easy to set up and start. Its vacuum is also as powerful as my upright. The problems I've encountered are: - Its motor is powerful enough to move the dining room chairs and trap itself - It needs a homing...

Powerful and easy to set up

Gets stuck a lot
