Neato Botvac Connected review: Will Dyson get dumped?

 

The Neato Botvac Connected is by no means the first robot vacuum cleaner to grace us with its presence and it isn't likely to be the last, but it does offer something different to many of its competitors: Wi-Fi. The Neato Botvac Connected has impressed...

Good design, great cleaning abilities for a robot vacuum, good battery life and auto-recharge docking station, smartphone notifications and control, easy to use and schedule via the app

Gets stuck every now and then, manual mode only works when on same network (so no manual control from afar), expensive, can't clean everything (stairs, for example)

The Neato Botvac Connected has impressed us. It not only manages to seamlessly cross between varying floor surfaces, but it leaves them clean and it's able to cope well enough without being babysat.

Neato Botvac Connected

 

Robot vacuum cleaners are cool, but not as cool as they used to be. After all, we now live in a world where almost everything has network connectivity and an accompanying app, so it's a lot harder to impress.

One of the best robot vacuums cleaners you can buy.

Neato Botvac Connected Robot Vacuum review

 

Before smartphones, before the cloud, before the Internet of Things was a thing, there was the robot vacuum. It's a smart-home product that predates the app-centric Gordian Knot of platforms and standards that is the modern connected home. A robot...

The Neato Botvac Connected is the best-performing robot vacuum we've ever tested. The new Neato app is well-designed and easy to use, and finally brings remote control functionality to the Botvac line.

At $700, it's the most expensive Neato yet -- $200 more than the previous generation. We also encountered a few usability quirks during testing.

The Neato Botvac Connected is better at cleaning floors than any other robot vacuum on the market, and it costs less than its app-enabled rival, the iRobot Roomba 980. If you're willing to live without remote controls, you can save some money by...

Neato Botvac Connected

 

The Neato Botvac Connected is a bit expensive, but if you're looking for a robotic vacuum you can control with your smartphone, it's the one to buy.

Wi-Fi-enabled. Well-designed app. Powerful suction.

Pricey. Quirky setup process.

Performance and Conclusions When you're ready to clean, all you need to do is press the aforementioned Play icon in the app, or you can press the Home button on the Botvac itself. It's probably a good idea to clear the way for it first, by moving small...

Neato Botvac Connected Review: A Great Little Butler

 

All I need in life to keep me feeling content is to come home to a clean floor. If you're like me, and having that extra hand around the house could help your state of being, the Neato Botvac Connected may actually not be your first choice. As far as...

Fantastic cleaning prowess, including ability to pick up clumps of pet hair ; Uses LIDAR triangulation for better mapping around the home ; App is user-friendly and offers a ton of stats

Height makes it tough to get under furniture ; Will suck up a cord if you have it lying around ; Expensive

Need extra help around the house? The Neato Botvac Connected is as reliable as it is capable.

Neato Botvac Connected Review

 

Best all-around cleaner for most homes

Great for pet hair, cleans tight corners and edges, navigates well, good at hard floors

Expensive, App can be hard to set up

The Neato Connected is a great robotic vacuum, doing a good job keeping our floors cleaner than we normally would. It is a decently expensive purchase (MSRP of $699 at the time of writing) but it can be a good investment with the amount of time it can...

Review: Neato Botvac Connected uses iPhone, Apple Watch and lasers for an effective clean

 

With autonomous cleaning modes built in, and the ability to use iPhone and Apple Watch as a controller, the Neato Botvac Connected proves we are finally living in the future.

If you're in the market for a robot vaccum cleaner, this is one of the best models around. It supports complex scheduling functions, cleans very well, is easy to empty and clean, and is controllable via iOS and WatchOS. The advantage to cleaning by...

Neato Botvac Connected Robot Vacuum Review

 

For now, it's the best connected robot vacuum you can get.

Any device that's battery powered must compromise either size, power, or speed. But after thorough testing, we think the Neato Botvac Connected sits at the perfect crossroads of those three.
