I thought it was a pair of eyelashes first

Good price but nothing other than a novelty

In what world is this a novelty?

just whip it out! You'll be over and done with in no time



What exactly are we talking about here?

I have a Roomba and it is brilliant - hoovering in our household is a thing of the past

Can't find any reviews of this....looks like the cheap end though (around £70 elsewhere too). I've heard that 'Roomba' is the way to go to get the job done properly (lots of 5* reviews) but they are £300 and up. Rather have one that worked though so I'd rather wait a bit.

It's a rebadging of the Dirt Devil machine - hard floors only and only capable of lifting dust and pet hairs. However if you have wooden floors and a cat, it could be cheap enough to be worth a look.

Wow, that is damn cheap! I wonder how it compares to the cheap Samsung from the other day.

I see the point has been made!:D

What if this beauty with lashes will meet DealDo under a bed?

Ideal if you have hard floors throught, but there's no mention of it working on carpets?
Good price, heat added

What is the airwatts?

Is is as good as a product with 300 airwatts or even a lower powered Dyson?

I bet it does not clean much at all.
Use this and then run a Dyson over it. If it's efficient, nothing much should be picked up.

Looking at it logicaly, one would think that the wheels would struggle to have any trackation, in the the fiber of the capet. A Good example of this, is any kind of toy the kids have. They dont seem to hardly move like that. So obviously the big the pile and the new the carpret then this is less likely to be effectove. With an old carpet with allot less in way of pile, it shouldnt have no problem.

Is this worth getting?

Is this worth getting?


No!

i took a risk and have got one of these, i hope it was worth to spend 66 pounds....:)

Good price but nothing other than a novelty


Spoken by someone who gets others to clean for them

I have a friend who is a single male, mid 50's, no kids, obscenely well paid. He has three of these things: one upstairs, one downstairs and one in the back bedroom that has a step up to it....I'm not sure whether to be jealous or feel sad for him!

I've observed him pitching them against each other in battle. Unfortunately, it was rather unimpressive as they sensed each other and changed paths

We have the samsung one which is £250 in currys, which came free (!) when buying a £400 fridge and its very good, esp with the camera tracking so doesn't bump in to stuff. Wife lets it run while she tends to our baby.

a few years ago I bought a cheapo one from ebuyer for £30 with same spec as this, and while it cleaned ok it bumped in to everything and damaged corners on kitched cabinets,. Good for a novelty, no way in hell worth £180

this is pre-order only?

No wonder he's single!

I've got one of these.......and it sucks!

It looks more like one of them pet bowls!! Lid pops up to feed pet when your out....Do not see how them brushes at the bottom can work and pick up anything?? aint they rather long??
Maybe its some fetish device for tickerling your toes??

Does it charge itself, if not it defeats the point

vax sucks.

cheers got one

OMG can't believe i'm seriously thinking of getting one! The things that appear on this site that I don't even realise I need till I spot them on here!:D

I now realise how the OP has amassed nearly 40,000 posts

I now realise how the OP has amassed nearly 40,000 posts



Is it because the OP geekishly sits on here 24/7 while his VAX does the work?

Anyone thinking of buying one of these - please take note - they are just for hard floors!!!

Got me one

Probably consider it if worked on carpets!

This any good?

i ordered but then had an email saying out of stock have ordered from the hut at £69.99 with free delivery instead

We got a Roomba as a gift ( different machine same idea ) when we were both working full time blah blah , what a waste of money for the poor person who bought it for us , it went to the tip after about 6-8 weeks because it was crap , oak flooring nicely polished and they looked worse than if we hadnt cleaned them , i think it was even sent back at some point thinking it was broken.

Voted cold no matter what the price from experience of having had one it was terrible.

was very tempted, but resisted. Also here for 69.99: thehut.com/ele…ogy
