    About this item

    Robotic vacuums are not to be used as a primary vacuum. They're meant as supplemental cleaning between regular cleaning. The Neato XV-21 is equipped with onboard Room Positioning System (RPS) technology, a revolutionary system developed by Neato Robotics that combines laser vision with mapping. With RPS technology, the robot uses its laser to see its surroundings and create accurate maps of areas to be cleaned, including furniture, objects and doorways. The robot constantly updates its map of the room, so if a new object is added into the room during a cleaning run, the robot will add it to the map.

    The XV-21 exceeded all my expectations. I could not believe the dirt it removed from my carpet right after a thorough vacuuming with my Dirt Devil upright. It cleaned closer to the room perimeters than my upright. After the third week, the dirt bin did not fill as quickly, but I think it will take two more weeks of weekly cleanings before it can vacuum the entire home with out overflowing the dirt bin where I need to empty it during each charging session. It runs about 45 minutes on a carpeted area (roughly two rooms or 300 square feet) before requiring a 3 hour recharge, so it takes about 12 hours to vacuum my entire 1400 sq. ft. home. After about 5 weeks I should be able to leave it unattended (no longer emptying the dirt bin). If there is a drawback, it is having to frequently empty the dirt bin the first month since it is more efficient than any vacuum I ever owned and is extracting 9 years of dirt in the carpet that my other vacuums failed to remove.

    I have a long hair cat and dog that shed constantly. The Neato XV-21 Pet and Allergy Robotic Vacuum has been the best investment since I purchased my laptop.

    • Yes, it will clean a large area, but it may have to recharge at the base station once or twice to clean the whole area.

    • I have a large open floor plan house. It cleans 4 of my rooms but can't find the other 2. I set it in those rooms and tell it to spot clean. It runs for about 45 minutes then return to charge for about 2 hours. Then it resumes again.

    • yes but it is very slow and may also have to recharge where a roomba would do it much faster so you have a loud robotic vaccum noise from a roomba for an hour or a neato for 4-5hrs

    • I have a room about this same size and it cleans all of it, sometimes it divides the room into sections and does each section.

    • I personally don't know why it would not clean a room that is 28x16. It might divide the room into two sections and clean it that way.

    • It will clean the entire house, no matter the size of the rooms. It will map the larger rooms into separate sections, but will clean the entire room.

    • It cleans my whole house and I have 6 rooms and a bath. It just goes to base and recharges when the battery is getting low. Then when recharged, it takes off again and goes right to where it left off and continues until done. Two of my rooms are about 14 x 24.

    One more question about Neato...does it have a de-tangle feature? I have an area rug that is fringed on both ends and don't know if I'll need to fold the fringe under. Thanks for any help with this.
    by MtnMomma 5/31/2013
    • I have a carpet runner in my hallway with fringe at both ends. My Neato XV-21 has no problems negotiating it and going on its merry way.

    • I am sure you will need to fold the fringe under as "James" tried to eat a sock he found under the bed.

    • No, it does not have a detangle feature. I would recommend picking the area rug up before vacuuming starts or try tucking the fringe under. If anything gets tangled in the neato, it will stop working and signal to you that it needs detangling. I hope this answers your question.

    • It is an amazing cleaner, but it does not have a de-tangle feature. Loose clothing or material from rugs are definitely a weakness of it.

    • NO... I do not recommend this vac for area rugs with fringe. it will sometimes get stuck on fringe and will eat it away over time. Yes, you will have to fold it under (not easy on a 9ft wide rug...)

    • You will need to fold the fringe on the rug under. If the robot does get tangled in any loose fringe it will shut itself off and wait for you to fix it. It will then resume its pattern. I have had mine catch the fringe around my bedspread a few times. I have learned to perform a few path clearance chores before the robot is set to clean. Shoes on the floor need to be picked up, socks etc, and make sure the dogs peed pads are well within the margin of the magnetic strips. The bedspread fringe has to be flipped up on the bed.

    • Don't think so. I would fold the fringe under the rug.

    • It runs about one hour on a charge, then goes back to its station and recharges for about an hour and then sets off to finish the job. If it needs another recharge before the job is finished, it will go back to its base and recharge again. The manual states it will do this up to three times.

    • It takes a few cycles before the battery builds up to full. At first it did a little over half the area and then went to recharge. After a week it did the whole area on a single charge. Sorry I didn't time it.

    • 30 min max, I got replacement batteries from the company and they didn't last any longer. Stick with Roomba, they run for at least 70 min on carpet.
