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

 

At least, it was. Now, a new crop of app-enabled "smart" robot vacuums is navigating into the picture, including the Wi-Fi-equipped Neato Botvac Connected. Pair it with its app on your Android or iOS device, and you'll be able to start, schedule, and...

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 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

 

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...
