This robot does its job fairly well, I would say it is a pretty close comparison to the Roomba 690. I have personally used the Neato D3, Roomba 690, Roomba 980, and Hoover Rogue. While I believe the best vacuum is the Hoover Rogue, their app is utter garbage and the robot relies on the app to do everything. DO NOT BUY THE HOOVER ROGUE!
Sorry, back to the Neato Botvac D3,
I have only had it get stuck twice since setting it up, granted it has only run about 6 times. For the most part it cleans the entire house, there was one occasion where it missed a room.
The Neato does a much better job of getting up close to walls, unlike the Roomba 690 which just likes to smash into things. The large cleaning brush on the Neato robots is excellent, some hair gets tangled, but if you clean it every other week you should be fine. My biggest concern with the Neato D3 is how much Neato has cut corners. The D3 has a tiny battery compared to the other robots, mine has to recharge at least once, sometimes twice before finishing cleaning.
Here is where is shines though, it ALWAYS picks right back up where it left off. Something the Hoover Rogue says it will do, but doesn’t and something that the Roomba 690 can’t even do. One consideration is that you can purchase the replacement battery on Amazon which is a higher capacity battery.
The other issue I have with the Neato D3 is that they ship the robot with a WORTHLESS air filter. After about 15 minutes of cleaning it is completely full of dust and debris and the cleaning power of the robot completely diminishes.
Thankfully you can buy the nicer High Performance and Ultra High Performance filters granted they are somewhat expensive. They work a thousand times better, I would highly recommend the upgraded ones. The Neato line of robots have a great map that displays in the application after the robot is done cleaning, I would consider it on-par with the Roomba 980 maps.
One thing that I would like to see if more details about cleaning (at what times the robot had to dock to recharge, it would be really cool to see how long it took in each room, it would be awesome if we could see a fast time lapse of how the robot cleaned, etc). Last but not least, the single most annoying thing that Neato did was not include the cleaning tool that they include with all other models.
This would have only cost an extra $1 if that, and they even tell you in the manual to use the cleaning tool to clean out the brush and sensors. Even the entry level Roomba’s include a cleaning tool.
– Smart vacuum with cleaning map that is comparable to $900 Roomba
– Cleans closer to edges of walls (due to its side wall sensor)
– Dust bin is easy to clean (especially with the upgraded filters, they have a screen to keep hair and big debris off the filter)
– Easy setup and continues to stay connected to the application, has always cleaned when it was scheduled
– Must cheaper with more features than other robot vacuums
– Company seems to be a little greedy with the omission of the cleaning tool, the horrible entry level air filters, and the less than perfect small battery (Thankfully they all can be corrected, but you have to spend more money, granted the D5 is a lot more money and the only advantage is the tiny little side brush if you update the battery and air filter in your D3)
– The app is a little bare, I would really like to see some extra information in the white spaces (I really don’t like that I have to click on the battery to see the percentage; there is plenty of space to always have it visible)
– Why does Neato not sell their robots or accessories. It would be very convenient to be able to find (authentic) accessories on their website to purchase rather than having to try to find them on Amazon, etc.
