really struggles on carpets and gets stuck on the edge of rugs but for pure wooden, laminate or solid floors it's alright

Great on my wooden floors, but it eats charging cables if they trail on the floor. It also eats my net curtain. It copes well over my wooden thresholds and up over a rug.

Why buy this? I've got a wife who does it ......I'm quickly hiding away before the onslaught ....... oO

Completely different item I think...

Careful, if the battery fails, Lidl won't replace it under warranty, potentially leaving you with a £65 brick within months of purchase. They're a good company to buy food from, but not electronics.

they rarely replace anything under warranty as they simply dont have the item any more.
as above get a refund under a year instore, over that you may get an adjusted one though to reflect the value of use but that seems to be quite normal now.

Did you try to enforcing the sale of goods act? Depending on the circumstance you can get replacement or a repair up to six years after the purchase.

this looks a good deal. would be grateful if anyone owns one! i had a roomba in 2002 and it was great til battery died. my ex wife got a 50 quid job and it is next to useless. this i have seen 100 to 150? reviews on amazon look quite good.

can you buy lidl deals online or instore only?

as lidl neither repair items nor stock items indefinitely its more likely to take the form of a refund.. partial or otherwise

They are rubbish and yes I was an idiot that bought one. Don't believe me? I don't care so go and try it for yourself.

Nothing like a considerate review to warn fellow consumers. Don't tell me... You're head of the PTA.

There is a huge difference between this one and a Roomba or a Neato. I bought a neato for my mother and it is amazing, you can retire your vacuum. (OK you may still need it occasionally) if you just want to vacuum an conference room with all the chairs put up on a the table this will do the job. Not a great job but it will do. If you want to vacuum your living room with furniture, cables or with anything that creates an obstacle course this will fail miserable. Heck, even the 300 quid neato gets itself into trouble sometimes but 8 out of 10 cases it will free itself without your assistance. Read a few reviews on robot vacuums, there are cheaper Roombas around £200 that do a half decent job, keep your house tidy until it's really time for you to vacuum once a month. Look at the Roomba 620 or the neato XV. They do act like vacuums. This one would probably just about entertain your cats.

There is a new Consumer Rights act 2015, with enhanced consumer protection.
If it failed within the first 6 months, you are entitled to a full refund. Even several years after purchase, you are entitled to a partial refund.
If the item is unfit for purpose, you're entitled to reject it for a full refund within the first 30 days.
If the product is good fine.
However it it were shoddy and unreliable, people should seek refunds, so that retailers do not make money from selling such trash.

I doubt anyone cares what a self confessed "idiot" thinks.

With lidl, store away the receipt, that is essential in providing the number sequence that validates it as a purchase upon their initial check, photo copy it & stash it in your documents case. ..no hassle claims!

Def photocopy all receipts for items with long warranties because thermal till receipts never last very long, even if they are stored ina dark environment a year or so later they can fade to nothing leaving you up the creek. Or instead of a photocopy take a photo and keep it on your smartphone or a scan and keep safe and print if you need it.

for wooden floors/under beds etc its great, I have the roomba irobot but used it twice as I find it doesn't get into corners enough so replaced it with a dyson, great price as mine was over 200

As a single man, I'd be interested in a 50 quid job.

On the contrary, a little honesty at making a mistake inspires confidence.

Ah you bought a drill. Would the store not give you a refund? The email seems to suggest you don't have the original receipt but from what I understand, a bank or credit card statement should be enough and even then if the battery failed within 6 months, you don't need any form of receipt. They should at least offer a repair or replacement. However, batteries are a grey area for many warranties since they're considered as consumables and degrade with time and use.
