I hate to be a curmudgeon but our experience with Dyson vacuums has been anything but stellar. I couldn't wait to get rid of ours

We continue to use and love our Miele but the huge change for us was when I went robotic. Presently I am Using a Neato D5 Bot connected and our house has never been so clean. The dirt and lint and things on the floor that this robot picks up is truly remarkable. It follows a map of the house that it produced in its first few clean cycles and when finishes it docks and sends to my iPhone a map of where it has cleaned in the house. Just like Dyson, Neato sells replacement parts for all of it's vacuums.

It takes 2 1/2 hours for it to clean the first floor of our house and it is cleaner than any time our cleaning ladies vacuum. I used to run it every day but now only 3X per week as it cleans so wellas you program the device for when to run and on what days. You can also set up a perimeter to keep the Neat out of any rooms or away from anything you don't want it near. It is a marvel to watch it wind in and out and between our kitchen chairs and table as well as the dining room chairs and table

I promise that once you go robotic you will never use another hand held vacuum or canister again. Ours is programmed to come on when we are not at home. All I do is clean the filter and trap and it is ready to go again. Replacement parts are quite inexpensive

Ive seen as well that the latest version of Roomba will not only map your house but when it docks it also cleans itself. How great is that

Neato has a Black Friday special. Buy a D7 at $100 off MSRP and get a D3 for free. That’s quite a savings. I’m tempted

I can honestly say that once you’ve used a Bot to vacuum you won’t be satisfied with anything else.

If you have pets - I would not recommend unattended robot cleaning. Too many horror stories of robots spreading dog poo and cat erp all across the house. I had a Roomba. I kept putting kittens on it, hoping that one would ride it like those videos online. :D I did not replace it when it finally died.

I beg to differ but only if your pet is house trained. We get to look after our son’s dog a lot and he sheds but would never have an accident in the house. Out Neato picks up so much hair that we never knew was there.

I’d go do far in saying that a robot is essential if you have a house trained pet.

I hope you are right as I bought one for my wife for one of her Christmas gifts. She did mention the Dyson hair dryer on a fishing expedition I presume :) so I took the bait and ordered one for her. Never knew until then that they made a hair dryer.

We were in San Francisco last week and there is a huge dedicated Dyson store in the Westfield Shopping Center on Market. It's like going into an Apple store

I think that I'm too wary of the accidents to allow for unattended robot vacuuming. You never know when the cat might throw a hairball or the dog eats something that disagrees. And that's what I mean by "accident" when it's truly uncontrollable.

I totally understand. Our son’s dog is totally housebroken but sheds. For us the Neato is indispensable

PS
Dyson is currently in a legal battle with the European Court. Apparently the EU tests for vacuum cleaners' performance is based on an empty cleaner which he claims gives the German manufacturers an unfair advantage and is not a credible test of performance
I love our Dyson. We have 2 big dogs and it gets the job done. I just ordered a Dyson hair dryer from a points catalog and am interested to see if they can blow as well as they suck.
