How does it get into the corners
Teletubbies could use it.

It should have a brush if it's anything like the others.

Wonder what model number it is?

I was having a go at being pedantic.
My hamster would try and mate with it if he was in his ball.

The hoovering would be done in 5 seconds.:p

They state •EAN/MPN/UPC/ISBN: 8808993846153 then it's a SR8845
If it is then they have it on the site twice with two different prices

Poor imitation
heat for (somewhat) new tech, think these should get popular so the woman can keep to sandwiches (jks)
None of these robot vacs are any good just yet really as you'll still need your normal vac to go over carpet for instance.

Thanks - can you explain how you know?
I have never heard of these robot vacumes being any good.Never seen one in action but for the price of it it would have to be pretty spectacular.
Better than the attachment for Kryten's groinal socket!
But does it blend?
What does it do when it gets to the stairs?
This and the neato seem much more efficient with their time and much less damage to clatter into your furniture and knock something over than a Roomba.

By all accounts the roomba is amazing
Can't comment on this specific model but I have a Roomba and it's great. You'll still need to do a proper hoover every so often to clean out the nooks and crannies but for day to day hoovering the Roomba does an excellent job. You just set it off and leave it to work away.
The Roomba is very good, my parents have one and as long as it's used regualrly it keeps down pet hair.

They have had a couple of cheap ones in between the Roomba being repaired, which are nowhere near as effective.

Be really interested to see how a Samsung does compare to the Roomba... Too pricey to risk it for me at the moment I think...it isn't that far off the price of a Roomba...
None of these robot vacs are powerful enough. Running off rechargeable batteriers they can't be.
Only good for lazy people who are not to bothered about cleaning under furnature and behind it.

Definitely a hot deal for the ladies if it includes the optional Sybian attachment

That's not true, they may be fitted with batteries that are not powerful, but it doesn't mean they don't exist. The Dyson Dc16 has a very powerful suction, but uses a lithium ion battery, granted this lasts for 6 minutes which makes it quite useless for a robot vacuum, but they are quite light and I've no doubt a larger one could be used.

Which says:

The Navibot is certainly more methodical in its vacuuming than other robot vacuum cleaners we’ve tried out.

When we set it loose in our studio, it did stick to one side of the room before moving to the other.

It’s got flexible wheels so can move from one flooring type to another up to 2cm higher. It certainly climbed onto our rug with ease - but it can't go up and down steps.

But we were a little disappointed with its cleaning on carpet. While it definitely brushed up larger bits of fluff and crumbs, it did leave behind visible smaller debris and didn’t seem to suck up dust from our thicker pile rug very well.

It would certainly save you sweeping up on hard floors, and regular use would help prevent a build up of dust and dirt.

But, we think you’ll still need your regular vacuum cleaner for thorough cleaning and with prices starting at £399, the Samsung Navibot is not a cheap helping hand.

Pros: More methodical cleaning, able to recharge itself and resume cleaning, easy to use

Cons: You’ll still need a regular vac for thorough cleaning, no weekly scheduler on the basic model, expensive

Can't comment on the Samsung, but the Roomba does well, as I said even collecting pet hair from carpet without difficulty, my mum runs it everyday and she isn't lazy but can't push a hoover as she has a bad back.

It also goes underneath their sofa which means it is cleaner than if they were using an ordinary upright!

I had two 500 series roombas. Very cool devices but they clog up with hair due to an inherent manuf weakness that is still not resolved. Luckily I bought extended warranty and after about 14 months, got my money back for both.

But they do work, just be prepared to clean them regularly and they demand a lot of TLC.

I imagine the Samsung is very similar.

It doesn't appear that any of these comments are from their own experiences of using robot hoovers and are therefore void. I have a Roomba which runs everyday on timer and has since relegated my Miele.
Perfect valentine gift for those who would rather rot on the sofa watching Cash In The Attic than save a small fortune and push a hoover round for 10 minutes doing the job properly in the meantine. I'd rather give the money to charity and get off my ****.

I've got an Electrolux Trilobite - it maps out the room in 3D using sonar.

Though I admit I don't have personal experience of the Samsung, I've had a Roomba for around 3 years. So I guess I could be a bit biased but on reading the Samsung reviews on Amazon and elsewhere I see problems with the Samsung that the Roomba doesn't have. Roomba only make robot vacuum cleaners, they pretty much invented them, they have been at it much longer than Samsung and so you would expect them to make a better product. I voted hot purely on this being the cheapest anywhere but personally I'd rather pay the extra for a Roomba. Watched the video of it in action on the Samsung exhibition where it failed to work properly didn't help!

In answer to some of the other comments here. They are not designed or intended to entirely replace a traditional cleaner. Although the Roomba is better at getting to some places, under the bed for example, it will not do stairs and those difficult nooks and crannies. In practice I have a proper clean once a month with my cylinder cleaner, in between that the Roomba goes round once a week. It will do two rooms on one charge but needs emptying after every room, which is easy to do. It's amazing how much stuff it collects and deals with cat fur OK. Only cons that come to mind are that in time it will need a replacement battery pack which are not cheap and I can't find anywhere to dispose of the old one to recycle. It takes a long time to do the living room but obviously I can be doing something else while it's busy but it does mean you can't use the room for that period. It slows down just before bumping into furniture but quite often harder than I would like, just a little worrying as it sounds like it is causing damage when in reality it isn't.
£199.99 for 0.8 air watts?? ha ha ha... cant compare to dyson handhelds. The dc35 has 60 airwatts.

... but are two completely different type of products intended for two completely different situations. Stupid comparison. The only thing in common is that they both clean.
Its a curse for a normal human being as you dont burn calories using it....
But a boon to disabled people.....
