    iRobot Braava - loved by this homeowner (and her cats too)!

    I love this little robot. It's so quiet even my cats adore it; they follow it around and pretend to be scared (Run away! Run away!) when it turns around and appears to chase thrm. Then they take a nap on the sofa while it cleans the room.It would almost be worth the money just for that show every time i use it, but it also does an exceptional job cleaning my hardwood floors. It works far better than the roomba that i had, which was excrutiatingly loud and worse, it was so messy to clean out after it vacuumed i always had to clean the floor again AFTER using it.The iRobot Braava is not a vacuum though, it pushes (or drags) its pile of dust and cat hair along as it goes. Surprisingly it doesn't deposit any of it along it's way. I did accidentally begin (and have continued) by using what is supposed to be the wet cloth on its dry cleanings - maybe that helps, since it's thicker than a swiffer cloth. At the end of a Mint session the dirt it is hauling along is... 5/5 Lush Landscapes (New York) - See all my reviews This review is from: iRobot Braava 320 Floor Mopping Robot (Misc.)

    Cleaning Buddy

    This iRobot Braava 320 works great on my ceramic tile floors.There is a large (nine feet by twenty-one feet in some places) foyer in this house that gets high usage from two entry doors. Off the foyer is an eight by twelve kitchen floor. Although the kitchen creates an "L" there is no obstruction -- it's just one smooth expanse of ceramic tiles.On the "sweep" setting, the iRobot takes care of this entire expanse, even when the direction cube is placed in the foyer. With the microfiber cloth, it does a fantastic job of dust-mopping the floor. When I first used it, I was fascinated by the criss-crossing patterns the iRobot was making, grabbed my Swiffer, and dust-mopped nearby sections of floor. Later, when the microfiber cloth was in the laundry, I attached a Swiffer dry cloth to the iRobot cleaning pad -- it fit perfectly. The microfiber cloth grabs some of the larger debris, but the Swiffer cloths don't do as good a job -- they're better for dust and fine... 5/5 J. A.

    Not Quite as Good as a Roomba

    First of all let me state that I have had several robotic vacuums and the Roomba always seems to come out on top. The Miele Scout RX1 is a good product but it still far from being a Roomba. This product is more of a quick cleanup tool rather than a true deep cleaning machine. And while no robotic cleaner works quite as well as a manual vacuum cleaner, the Miele cleans less well than my Roomba 510. In addition the Miele has a few annoyances that will truly irritate anyone who has used a Roomba. One of the big ones is the magnetic strip that is used to confine the Miele into one area. This setup simply is not effective and is primitive compared to Roombas light beam that prevents it from passing. In terms of cleaning ability the Roomba is louder and seems to have more suction than the Miele. This does not matter so much on hardwood floors or tile, but it is noticeable on carpet. If the Miele is significantly cheaper than a Roomba then it may be worthwhile to consider but if the... 3/5 FirePepper Red "firepepper red" (California, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Miele RX1 Scout Robotic Vacuum (Misc.)

    Excellent feature set trumps competition, but firmware can be buggy at times

    Courtesy of the Amazon Vine program, I have received a “Miele RX1 Scout” for review. Previously, I have been called a “Roomba-holdout” in the office: I work in the high-tech industry and I am the only person in the team who doesn't have a robotic vacuum yet. Instead, I happily take out my Dyson and more recently my LG Kompressor every weekend and enjoy the experience of pushing it around by myself. I know this sounds strange, but I really enjoy doing vacuum cleaning and that's one of the few household work items that my gf approves me to do without her supervision. :PI won't go into detail about what this Scout is. Amazon's website and many other reviewers do a wonderful job explaining what it is. Instead, I want to talk about my experience of using it.The out-of-the-box experience is very good. Everything is neatly packaged. The manual is clear: attach the brushes, let it charge first, and setup the remote and clock. Done. The only... 4/5 fatmav - See all my reviews, June 19, 2014

    Much smarter than the Roomba!

    I have a Pet Series Roomba, and after getting the Scout, I often ran both robotic vacuums at the same time to compare their performance. It was obvious from the very beginning that the Scout is a much smarter machine. While the Roomba would go off in random direction, hit something and then turn and go into another random direction, the Scout very methodically went back and forth in lines, covering every inch of the floor it could. When it hit something, it carefully worked around it and then resumed going the way it had been going. This resulted in a much cleaner floor with very few missed areas. It also has other modes, for spot cleaning and fast cleaning, easy controlled by the remote or the pad on top of the unit. It has good suction, at least as good as the Roomba if not better. and the debris bin is a good size.However, this is not a perfect robot. In my kitchen, it almost always would get stuck under my kitchen cabinets (there is approximately a 3-1/2 inch... 4/5 Squeal (Orange County, CA) - See all my reviews, May 24, 2014
