Neato XV-21 Pet & Allergy Automatic Vacuum Cleaner


The Neato XV-21 does an excellent job of picking up pet hair?but it's no replacement for a traditional vacuum.

Picks up an astonishing amount of dust and pet hair. Simple to use. Easy to clean. Programmable

Doesn't work well on tight corners. Very loud. Dated design

Once you're fully charged, simply press the Start button and watch the XV-21 get to work. You'll be sure to know it's working, because the XV-21 is loud. The sound it makes upon starting is not dissimilar to that of a plane taking off, albeit at a...

Best robot vacuum


Fantastic robot vacuum. With two cats and a dog, vacuuming is a constant chore. With the Neato, I just tell it to vacuum twice a week and just empty the dust bin after each run.

Easy to set up, does a great job cleaning, very smart around corners

A little expensive


Consumer review by:



This was a great purchase. It is NOT a substitute for vacuuming, but with 2 young kids, running this every night means we don't have to lug out the "big" vacuum as often (just once a week now!). The only problem would be that it sometimes leaves little...


misses some crumbs in the corner

Good little robot vaccum


Which it was cheaper but well worth it. Good little robot on wood floors but dies quickly on thick carpet.

Fairly good at picking up hair and litter

Sometimes gets lost going back to base

Consumer review by:



I have two dogs and two cats. Prior to purchasing this it was a constant chore cleaning pet hair up from the floor and furniture. This is simply AWESOME. No more hair on the floor, no more hair on the furniture and no more hair on my feet. It does...

I love this vacuum!


Initially i was concerned about the price, and could not imagine that a robot vacuum really could get the whole floor clean. However, my husband got this for me as a Christmas/birthday present, and I was a believer the first time I used it. It does the...

Excellent job picking up cat and dog hair

long recharge time

Consumer review by:

Surprisingly great


I am very impressed with how well it works and the fact that it keeps track of where it has been and where it still needs to go.Does a great job at mapping out the area of the room, getting the perimeter and then moving in a very distinct pattern to...

Mapping and complete coverage

Corners & short battery life

Consumer review by:

Works extremely well, except short battery life.


In my hunt for a good robotic vacuum, I ended up with the Neato XV-21. I went through 2 Roomba 780's in a week due to the first one breaking on day 2. The second Roomba would get lost and stuck during every use. So what do I like about the Neato? It...

Cleans entire floor, every inch of it

Short (50-60minutes) battery life
