Worthless and cheaper elsewhere.

Disagree. Costco has the XV14 for $250.

Worthless? I was a solid Roomba guy - owned 3 but never again. Neato is far superior and has many advantages. If anyone's interested I'll be happy to expound.

Sugar 'em up and send 'em home

Maybe to someone with no carpeting, but for people with carpets it's worth a lot. Mine has been doing a great job for over a year.

How is this on hardwood floors?

It picks up cat food on my tile kitchen floor, so probably pretty good.

I have one and it works well on both wood and carpet. I have one and it's pretty amazing. It doesn't just go around wherever like a roomba does, it analyzes the room and does it efficiently. Great stuff, good price too.

Not too good imo. Loud, misses sides and corners. Loud.You still will need a broom to go along walls.... Not a substitute for a real vacuuming.

Yep, and it leaves a nice neat pattern on the carpet.

Based on what some posters are saying, the price may be a little high though.

Another +1 for this device. I bought one the last time woot had this, and I love it! For my apartment, which is a pretty open floor plan, it's great. Does a wonderful job of picking up after myself, and a perpetually shedding cat who likes to toss his food around. I would say just remember to empty the tray basically every time that you're done. But, there's nothing quite like getting the carpet vacuumed while you're doing something else.

I got mine in January but alas, it was one of the infamous "bad batch" from the Nov/Dec timeframe that has defective hardware that causes the "stuck right wheel" error.

I'll say this: when it works, it's far better than the Roomba. It does get hung up on stuff a little easier than the Roomba did; but as far as the quality of cleaning and the ease of cleaning the brushes and dustbin after it's done, I'll take the Neato over the Roomba any day. I liked my Roomba, but it went through batteries about every 9 months, and it was such a pain in the butt to clean the rollers of dog hair. I spent as much time cleaning the unit as I would have spent just vacuuming manually.

Neato claims that the stuck right wheel error has been identified and fixed, and that the newer robots don't suffer from that issue. We'll see...they're shipping me out a new unit today.
