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.

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 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...

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.

Neato Botvac Connected review: A LIDAR-powered robot vacuum is my maid now


Vacuuming is for chumps. Make a robot do it.

It vacuums; I don't. It saves me about 95 percent of the time I would spend cleaning, and since I rarely have to do anything, the floor gets vacuumed far more often than it would if it was just up to me. ; It's a great vacuum. Powerful suction, the...

The app needs work. It's missing obvious features like a full set of notifications, and it's unreliable. ; It'll get stuck on cords and other things on the ground. ; The magnetic strip is a clunky solution for a virtual wall. It can't detect it from a...

The Neato Botvac Connected is an impressive little device. Delegating the vast majority of your floor cleaning duties to a robot is a great time saver. While we might complain about the easily-worn finish and the smartphone app, we have no complaints...

Neato Botvac Connected Review


Although the Neato Botvac Connected did not pass each test with flying colors, it performed very well and made up for any missed particles with second and third passes. In particular, we were impressed with this robotic vacuum's approach to walls and...

This robot vacuum cleans close to edges and around furniture.

Pet hair sticks to the bristle brushes easily, which makes cleaning your robot vacuum a bit more time-consuming than other bots on our lineup.

The Neato Botvac Connected combines almost all the features you could want in a robot vacuum: It has powerful suction, its design allows it to get close to walls, and it includes a smartphone and tablet app that lets you choose its schedule – even if...

Works very well


Works exactly as you would like and has cool stats in the app. Sometimes it get stuck if I don't pick things up, also if you move it too much after getting stuck it may have a hard time completing its mission until reset.

awesome mapping and great cleaning

Horrible reliability, horrible customer service


I have gone through 4 different Neatos, this being my last iteration. Over 2 years all 4 vacuums, including this one have stopped working completely, from various issues (multiple batteries dying after the brief 6 month battery warranty expired, laser...

Cleans very well, when it works

Terrible customer support, very unreliable product

LOVE the 2016 Botvac Connected (LI battery)


C/Net's Aug. 2016 review sold us on the Botvac Connected. After following the development of the various robotic vacuums, we tempered our expectations about how well they functioned (it's not AI, people) but ended up surprised at how well the Botvac...

No more daily, rolling tumbleweeds of hair from me and our German shepherd mix!
