Me too, I've looked a few up on Amazon but the reviews aren't marvellous.

Which have just done a review and the (very expensive) Dyson came first.

I have a neato here - had it about 10 months and no complaints.

Mine is a Neato Botvac too, had it about a year and it's great, no complaints.

It finds its way around, does a really good job of picking up and is quite low so gets under most furniture without a problem. Does occasionally get stuck under the sofa but just beeps until you rescue it.

Wouldn't be without mine. It's so great that I can pop up for a shower and come down to a nice clean kitchen floor.

I've had my Vielda for about a year and half and it's a great little cleaner. For the price you can't really complain. This is a relatively useful ad hoc cleanup option but won't do the full job and may struggle a bit if you have lots of furniture as it will bounce off chair legs etc. No problem with falling down stairs; the sensor works well. The room size option is a bit pointless because it's best to simply switch it on, lock it in the room and put it on for the L setting and it will eventually cover all the ground by virtue of the random nature by which it works. It can occasionally get stuck so be mindful of low carpet pieces and mats. Otherwise I would recommend it as an occasional extra helper, eg to pick up crumbs left behind from a kids popcorn and movie night etc.
