    But if I buy one and I don't do anything else with the 20 minutes once every 6 months that this has saved me...am I lazy?

    eBuyer was £65.99 the other day - not £190. When these things are available they're always around the £65-70 mark - no reviews to go on, though, so it's a gamble as to whether they're any use or just a pile of ****

    They appear to be rebadged Dirt Devil Whiskers. Reviews...

    http://www.rigcast.com/r3/r3-dirt-devil-whiskers-dsv-robotic-vacuum/ Verdict "The Dirt Devil Whiskers is far from perfect, and you will more than likely find yourself correcting the robot 1-3 times per use if you have rugs and carpet. It’s a little on the loud side, but it’s far quieter than an upright. The thing is, this vacuum wasn’t intended to be perfect. It was built for one thing, trapping light debris on hard floors. If all you have is an empty space of hardwood, it will work amazingly. Unfortunately, we all have furniture and rugs that Whiskers will get hung up on sometimes. After learning its limitations and adapting to them, I have found Whiskers to be a huge help around my house. Running it once a day is all I need to avoid the dreaded weekend date with an upright. To me, Whiskers is a great tool for my home under my conditions, and I will continue using it daily".

    Love the doggie :)
    The idea of this is good but I bet it would drive me nuts if it leaves a trail of mess not cleaned up, I'll stick with my Hoover that sucks up everything in sight .... Nothing is safe on our floor

    I dont think that any of them work particularly well.
    I am sure that The Gadget Show did some testing but each robot vacuum cleaner had its faults

    It's for use on hard flooring... wood, laminate, lino, etc. It's not for use on carpets or rugs.
