Lidl NI selling the same vacuum for an absolute rip off price of £169. I've noticed things a fiver more expensive in the past but not by this much.

Doesn't say if it's return to charging base nor does it list the suction pa? Anyone have any experience of this? I've a cheap one off Amazon but it's not quite powerful enough to lift some dog hairs. It's also not return to charger so you have to go hunting for it each morning It does work though which is why I want to upgrade.

This is probably garbage right? Save the money for an eufy

worth a try at that price, a roomba with similar spec would be at least 3 times the price.also this has a 3 year guarantee whereas most others have 2 years
I really want one of these, I'm too skint to buy one though. Heat added op. One day when I'm rich I'll buy 10 n have the cleanest floors ever!
Planned to get one of these but no I have a cordless vac, I don't feel the need, as I keep getting the vac out, whereas Henry was a bit of a chore.
wonder if this will be a dud or good, alexa enabled and so on
looks like this might be it



Looks like it wanders randomly rather than covering a specific path like the more expensive ones do, where they draw a perimeter and then fill in the blanks
Saw 2 of them in my local store. Couldn't quite bring myself to buy, no information on suction power strength or specs on the box

I believe I have now found the instruction manuals of this

lidl-service.com/cps…ner
I’ve just bought one and got it home, seems to be pretty good so far, picks up most of my girlfriends hair and leaves and bits of crumbs and stuff I gave her about an eighth of a ginger nut biscuit and she managed fine with that.

There’s a few different modes, one says it plots out the perimeter then does the middle methodically but it seems somewhat random at the moment but it’s not going over the same places much which is good

It also does have a return to home function but I’m not sure if it goes back when it knows it’s getting low or if it’ll just die and you have to press the button to tell it to go home
Update: it does go home when it gets low on charge, not sure if it’ll pick up where it left off though
Tried it going from hard floor to rug or raised bit between doorways?

It deals with the metal bits between doors fine, I don’t have any rugs but the wheel have got some kind of suspension type thing so I think it would more than likely be fine

Did u try it on a carpet floor or a hard one?
Frostywood..... do you think I should buy one.... or go for a better model???
On carpet, I’ll try it in the kitchen later and see how it deals with that. So far I’d recommend it for the price but I’ve not used any others so I can’t compare to more expensive versions.

I will say that I can’t log in to the app at all though not sure if that’s an issue with the iOS app or something else
I've just come home with one of these. Thought about the eufy on black Friday but decided against it. For 100 notes will give these robot cleaners ago.

It’s actually really good!
Not taken mine out the box yet (probably won't until next week). However the app seems to be the same as the ILIFE app so I presume it's a rebadged ILIFE machine or made by them for Lidl.

I'll have a closer look when it's out of the box.
I got one aswell, only got hardfloors but it does a really good job.very impressed with it, finds it way to the dock easily and it’s not too noisy.no regrets about buying it
Is it worth paying more for something alexa enabled?
thing that concerns me is the cost to replace the parts once part life ends. I can see from the app screenshots that it shows parts life etc amounts. One problem may be sourcing a compatible part for this, another will be how does it enforce it - eg like some printers where they refuse to work at all if it thinks there is no life left in the drum when it is perfectly fine
As someone else pointed out that it’s rebadged iLife, I’ve seen the brushes and filters for sale on amazon £20, might be able to find cheaper elsewhere
36342959-ihtoQ.jpgWaiting for mine to charge but mapping shouldn't be an issue
I've used this today and I'm really pleased with it. It collected dust over and above what our Dyson cylinder collected 2 days ago. The robot maps the floors outline and fills in the gaps. It's my first one so I have nothing to compare to but it's been a good punt for £100
Used mine a few times now. Really pleased for the money. Even the doubting wife is mildly impressed. Comes with a form to order spares, or they are they same as iLife spares available online.

It's going to be available in Poland in few days. Your comments were really helpful, I think I'm going to get it.

But I have one more question. Can you drive it around like a RC car?
Iv purchased one of these for £99, last one in my local Lidl. I was initially going to give it a miss, but somehow ended up purchasing it, but this is an amazing unit. It says for short pile and hard wood floors, but I tried it on our medium carpet and it did a great job. Its amazing given that Iv spent £500+ in the past for robot hovers (iRobot wet and dry mop (still going), various robot hovers). It has two rotating brushes, plus a brissle rotating brush. I tried it on my hardwood floor and it was great, I also tried it in the dinning room on medium-high pile carpet and it was also great, the tank was full after that clean. I like it so much I decided to leave a review. Great job to Lidl for selling a great product and great job to Silvercrest who I have never heard of before.

Presume lidl themselves won't want to know after the first year, then have to reply on posting it to manufacturer. Wonder what battery warranty is too

I've seen some more of these available again and very tempted as a last minute present for the missus....but the parts life cost etc putting me off - considering had the dyson for like 10yrs now and still going strong with no new parts, whereas these seem to list parts lifes in the app suggesting they may be going the way of printers - cheap models to expensive consumables
Which store...i thought my husband had bought one.... looking for stock please

Hartlepool - the new store near Halfords - there were 3 available from memory
Edited by: "Midnight.Tboy" 23rd Dec 2018
Is this still being sold at all?
yup seen it back in stock in a few places, even yesterday
I have 2 roomba vacs.....love them and this is a great deal. With regards to suction...these vacs differ from conventional vac think roller brush with light suction. I used on hard wood,tile and carpet. Key is to run often..deep ground in dirt will not be lifted. I have 2 dogs and robot vacs are great at picking up hair and dirt. It wouldn't surprise me if this is a rebadged/discontinued roomba model.

Got one today thanks, worth the drive I think. Though it seems to miss one particular spot on my rug every time but does a good job of cleaning up after the cat! I haven't tried the schedule setting yet but will do when I have to go back to work (so soon!). Return to base randomly searches for it's base until its within about 5-7 feet of it, then it will slowly line itself and charge itself up. My cats disabled the evil machine in a brutal fight twice in total, so I'd say its a win to cat owners too. Overall very impressed (don't bother with the android app it's garbage, doesn't even connect!).
All the robot vacuum cleaners I've come across seem to have the same dirty secret: the huge amount of space required around the docking station. It's usually a metre either side and two metres in front, although one I found (Bobsweep Bobi) is 50cm either side but 3m in front. Assuming you can find that sort of clearance, you would end up with the thing being a major trip hazard when docked. Wouldn't it be nice if, say, it could dock under a kitchen unit?

Has anyone had an issue with this, or have I missed something?
Anyone know if this is still available in London stores anywhere?
