Though these robots may be simple, they have their merits in applying some of the concepts discussed in Part I and in introducing some new ideas. For example, the Floor Sweeper covers room navigation, suggesting approaches that refer to ...

    This is the most amazing thing ever…

    A couple of years ago I bought my sister the first generation of the Mint Automatic Hard Floor Cleaner for about $250.00. Several weeks ago I ran across the O’Cedar O’Duster at Wal-Mart for about $40.00 and made an impulse purchase. I was so impressed that I got my mom the O’Duster for Christmas. My review will not only comment on my experience with the O’Cedar product but also compare the O’Duster to the Mint.Both of these products are hard floor sweepers (note I said “sweeper”. There is no sucking action on either of them.). They use a disposable cloth product to sweep wood, tile, vinyl, etc. They will not work on carpets/rugs; nor, are they designed to wet-clean the floor. These do not take the place of mopping.First, a description of the O’Cedar O’Duster…There is a round plastic center housing that is about eight inches in diameter and a little over two inches tall.

    Helps to keep up with the dust on hardwood flooring

I am constantly coughing at night from dust in my bedroom because the hard flooring allows dust and hair to float around. This inexpense unit really helps.Be certain to give your room (floor) a thorough dusting and cleaning along with all of the furniture. Now, you are ready to use this unit. Let it do it's thing every other day and you will really notice a reduction in dust and hair.Easy to use. rechargeable. I would recommend you try it.Note: Ideally, floor should be clear of cords, books and junk. Have it start in the middle of the room if possible. Close your door or it will leave and work on the tile outside your bedroom!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 27, 2013

    Great tool for those who are not expecting this to replace a human.

    Customer Video Review Length:: 0:31 MinsI vacuum regularly but because I have pets, I need to Swiffer every couple of days or else a layer of fur builds up on my hardwood floors. I decided to give this a try and it works well for me. The long cycle lasted 2.5 hours when I tested it. It's not a Roomba, so don't expect a vacuum cleaner. It's not the Mint, so don't expect anything advanced or smart from it. It's simply a moving Swiffer-type cleaner that grabs small items like dust and pet/human hair. Don't expect it to pick up anything bigger and your expectations will be realistic. This does not replace a vacuum cleaner or actual sweeping by a thinking and seeing person, but it's good to leave on to do its stuff in between cleanings to get some pet hair off the floor without effort. It will get stuck in some areas like elevated edges, rugs, wires, and tight corners, so it probably won't be that effective left on when leaving the home. A great tool for those who are not expecting this to turn this... 4/5 BrooklynNY (NY) - See all my reviews This review is from: O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner (Health and Beauty), June 28, 2014

    Fantastic cleaning robot!

    I must say, I'm impressed with the mapping system on this little guy. I have a very large (20'X20') open living room/kitchen area giving plenty of obstacles to confuse it. There's a staircase (which it deftly avoids), an island, a kitchen table with chairs, a couch and a number of tables for it to go under, an area rug and a piece of curved beveled glass on the floor that serves as a stand for a fireplace (which it surprisingly does not ride up on). Also, the room is overall "U" shaped with several entryways. This is the only robotic cleaner that has been able to figure this room out in its entirety. Other things to note is the room has a large fan and high, sloped ceilings and it can still find it's way.My Roomba did terribly. It would get stuck in one section, the Neato XV was OK but would miss some parts. This thing does a great job of freshening up the floor and getting at just about everything due to it's small size!One thing I did not know is the Mint... 5/5 Ryan Mckenney - See all my reviews, September 9, 2010

    Mint v Roomba: Which is hte Better Sucker

    The short version, for those reading many reviews quickly is this; the Mint has many advantages over the Roomba on a feature for feature basis. But at the end of the day, the Roomba is the better product and picked up a LOT more pet hair.Here's the longer version with the gory details:Both of these are great innovations. True, the Mint is far quieter, cheaper and cooler looking than the Roomba. It is also easier/cheaper to maintain. But the Roomba gets more dust off the floor, despite the fact that the Mint can get under places Roomba can not, and Roomba returns to its base for a re-charge on it's own, as needed. The Mint just dies in place.The guy on here who's review said that he sent his Roomba on a mission and then sent the Mint after it to discover dirt the Roomba missed, would have had the same result if he performed the experiment in reverse. I know b/c I did just that. these two devices clean differently, so any comparison is useless... 2/5 dusthater - See all my reviews This review is from: Mint Automatic Hard Floor Cleaner, 4200 (Kitchen) The short version, for those reading many reviews quickly is this; the Mint has many advantages over the Roomba on a feature for feature basis.

    Beware False Hopes

    First: notice the 5-star rating that I have given this.I agree with all of the 5-star reviewers: this product is worth the price (have had it about 6 weeks now). I have used it on vinyl (Congoleum/linoleum) floors, tile floors and wooden floors. It works well on all of them. Time will tell more.However, rather than repeat what others have said, I will describe some aspects that might disappoint you when/if you buy it, but these do not outweigh the benefits.- This does NOT do a deep clean. That takes elbow grease and this, naturally, is not heavy enough to scrub that well (you wouldn't want it to be that heavy). You will have to do a deep clean first. The Mint will then maintain that clean floor. I use it about once a week.- The designers did a generally good job, except for the week when they all took vacation at once and let the janitor decide where to put the charging port.

    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.

    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.

    With proper expectations set, this is the droid you've been looking for.

    We've had this little guy for about three months and have been using it pretty much every other day. I couldn't be happier with it's performance.This little robot is a helper, and keeping that in mind, you'll find your floors stay much cleaner in between your more dedicated cleaning sessions.That's not to say you're completely out of the picture. You have a responsibility to use this robot, and while his AI is quite impressive at times, it is still an appliance. This is not entirely a "set it and forget it" robot. Think of it as other helpful appliances. Your dishwasher is great! But you still need to properly load it, pre-rinse when necessary, and occasionally still scrape some dry food off of a fork with your thumbnail. Your washer and dryer are fantastic!

    Good for floors that you cant use Scooba on

    I have been a fan of the IRobot series of robot for several years now since originally purchasing a 300 series Scheduler (named Fred) and then later on the Scooba (named Wilma). And although not perfect, I have a few gripes about each, I still like these little cleaning wonders. The Braava 380 floor mopping robot is one of the latest offerings for iRobot with the Braava 380t being the higher end model of their floor mopping series and an alternative to the wet mopping Scooba.

    Good for maintenance, but will not clean a dirty floor

    I so desperately wanted this to work. As the mom of two kids under five, my floors remain perpetually sticky thanks to spilled juice, dribbled dinner, and a host of other toddler-induced messes. I was thrilled thinking that this floor mopping robot would help make my work load easier. It made me sad to learn that it did little more than just wipe my floors down. I tried it a few different ways: once with the dry sweeping cloth, once with water and the wet mopping cloth, and once with a swiffer wet cloth. It is super easy to use and after the first time I used it, it seemed to learn my kitchen fairly quickly. The bottom of the cloth showed that it had picked up some dirt, but there were still several spots of the floor that I later had to go back and clean by hand. If your floors are already in fairly good condition and you just want a quick touch-up between deep cleanings, I think the Braava can handle that, but if your floors are genuinely in need of mopping, this isn't going to make... 3/5 Mama Bear - See all my reviews, October 8, 2013

Also mint's own website has a pack of 3 mopping cloths for the same price ($9.99)which amazon so far doesn't offer.These cloths are so much better than using swifter or other prepaid disposable, and cheaper - just wash and tumble dry.(the only 4 stars was for the price on amazon)edit: April 2011 - rechecked mints own website again and they have reverted back to $20 again :( As with everything shop around! Just wish amazon would sell the pack of 3 mopping cloths on their own. The mopping cloths do hold a lot of 'fluid" (I just use one part vinegar to 9 parts water) so it does mop quite a bit before having to put more solution in front of mint to rewet cloths. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 24, 2011

    I have a that started behaving badly (Stops after bumping) . Called IRobot and they spend about 15 minutes, decided it was damaged and since it was under warranty, send a replacement. After about a year, the replacement also started behaving badly. The cycle repeated but this time IRobot said I am not under warranty and Mint has been discontinued. So they can sell me a at discount,which I agreed to. Since it was at a discount , only the main unit will be shipped and I am supposed to use the pad,battery,charger etc. I tried the braava to notice it was behaving the same way.Then it stuck... 5/5 Big Data Paramedic "Chandra" (South Florida, USA) - See all my reviews, August 7, 2014

    Review From A Robotic Vacuum Junkie!!

    Customer Video Review Length:: 5:52 Mins As some of you may know by now I love Robotic Vacuums so any chance I get to right a review on one I take it. Over the past 7 years I have owned probably over 12 robotic vacuums. Most being Irobot Roombas. I started with the Roomba Red and feel in love since. The Roomba Red performed very well for an early bird on the robotic vacuum market. I have owned almost all models of the Roomba all the way up to the current 670 I own. I also own a Neato XV11 and a LG Hombot. At one time I even had a Canadian Samsung Navibot and loved it until it wore out. Ok now onto the main star for today the Moneual MR6550 Rydis. Hope you had a chance to view my short video and if it helps anyone then that is great. I received the Rydis about a week ago and was very impressed with the packaging, not cheap, but very well designed and a lot of details were printed on exterior but who really cares about the outside it's what is side that counts. I quickly unboxed it and... 4/5 Michael Countryman "mike the camera man" (pelzer, sc) - See all my reviews, February 25, 2013

    Adequate, but not great - 3.5 stars

    The biggest problem I have with this unit is the lack of a floor-height sensor. We have about 2,000 square feet of hardwood downstairs, but all the bedrooms are carpeted and the bathrooms and laundry room are tiled. The 3/4" hardwood stands 1 1/2" higher than the tile or carpet, as there is 3/4" plywood foundation under it. The robot will drive off the wood and then promptly get stuck in whatever room it comes to. You MUST close doors if you use this on hardwoods, or you'll be searching for your stranded robot.The vacuum works fairly well, but it is not revolutionary by any means. My wife and I got it set up and put it to work and found that the vacuuming power of the unit is not that great, as we put sawdust on a rug and let the robot loose. The robot started by making random passes at what appeared to be 45-degree angles and didn't really come back to cover the areas it missed. It just ran off the edge of the rug, then onto the hardwood and down the hall. It... 4/5 TheTerrorBeyond (Tartarus) - See all my reviews This review is from: Moneual MR6550 Rydis Hybrid Robot Vacuum and Dry Mop Cleaner (Misc.) Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)

    Flawed design--not ready for consumers

    I've been running the Moneual for a few months now, and I've definitely concluded that it is way inferior to my latest-generation Roomba. In fact, it drives me nuts and sometimes barely works. It is constantly (constantly!) getting stuck on everything from heating vents in the floor to literally the wall itself--it starts climbing the molding and gets stuck half on the wall. It is also constantly getting clogged on the input slot. The pet hair/dirt/whatever gets in the slot but not all the way into the dust trap, so it clogs and either gives an error message or keeps going without picking much more up. I have to use a hand vacuum to clear the input slot at least twice on an average run.Over and over, the Roomba makes me happy and this Moneual irritates me. If you are going to buy a robotic floor vacuum, I urge you not to spend your money on this vacuum but choose a Roomba instead.Other thoughts: In one test I did, I ran each robot on different... 1/5 Unity Dienes (Hollis, NH) - See all my reviews, March 14, 2013
