Now doesn't this Neato Robotic all floor vacuum cleaner system from Lowes seem like such a cool product! Basically if you're tired of vacuuming your floor time and time again and you think that time could be better spent elsewhere, then why not give it ago. You recharge this unit and then just let it go. It will cover your floors and clean it on its own apparently it does a good job maneuvering around furniture. If you have a very large house, then you might have to recharge it halfway through, however if you have a moderately sized space, then it should probably be able to get the job done on one charge.
What's really neat about a product like this is that you can really get a much cleaner home than you would have if you had left the cleaning up to you. Because, with this little machine you could schedule the robot vacuum to clean every day, however if you were the one doing the cleaning then it might just get done once a week, or perhaps even more rarely. At Lowe's website where you can purchase this unit there are quite a few reviews and almost all of them are positive, remarkably. People seem to love this Neato vacuum cleaner, they say it's easy to use, that it does a good job etc... It's kind of funny to think that if this development continue in this direction, then we might not clean our own floors anymore, you might find one of these units in every house in a few years!
Price wise, it's not too bad. At Lowes' website this vacuum is listed at $400 which really isn't that bad, if it does what it says it does. Because that's basically the price you would pay for a good quality traditional vacuum and this unit contains all kinds of electronics and features which enable it to clean on its own... It would be interesting to see how well this little robot cleaner would perform and if it's actually worth buying.
