One thing I've learned is that the cheaper cleaning robots don't have area fencing. If that's no problem, this one looks pretty good.
How would one of these do in the robot battle in the stock car class ?
It might make a “clean sweep”
A month or so ago I bought the iLife A4s for $139 (if I remember correctly). The difference (it appears) for this unit is that it is specific to hardwood floors and does not do carpets.
I never knew how much I needed a robot vacuum.
It goes under couches, gets into areas that I don't even think about and, as clean as I keep my home, always comes back with a decent amount of "stuff" in its tummy (It is alive and its name is "L'il Horseshoe" because, with its sweepers, it looks like a horseshoe crab).
It is amazing. Stupid though.
No virtual walls or app.
I'm ok with that.
I do have to pick cords up and make sure that things like shoelaces etc are not in its path because it will get stuck.
Small price to pay for getting the job done while taking care of other things and getting it done well.
If you don't mind not having an app to control I highly recommend. You also have to clean it after every run. Again-small price to pay.
I will also add that I had seen a few reviews noting how it ran out of juice and did not make it back to the base.
Called customer service and they were more than happy to send me a second base free of charge.
Great customer service.
I will assume this one is wonderful as well.
Recommend the company and the experience.
For those who have this, can it go over intra-room thresholds or will it stop when it reaches one?
So does anyone know how well this does on carpet? Details mention that it is ideal for hardwood floors.

My A4s goes over the thresholds, but it depends on the height. Mine are small wooden (about 1/2 inch in height) and it goes over them just fine.
I thought this said something about a probiotic vacuum and I thought to myself, is THIS what we care about now?
We've seen a bit of both, it makes it over most of the thresholds fine, but one higher one it occasionally gets stuck on, and another that kind of slopes up to a slightly higher level floor it rarely makes it up. It should make it over most of them.
I also second the mention of picking up cords and shoestrings, this thing can DEMOLISH something like a phone charger cable if it finds it.
What's the cat riding capacity?
It looks a bit like a toilet seat... instead of going to the bathroom you just press a button and the bathroom comes to you!
What happens when it encounters a room that is carpeted or a room with a area rug in it?

it struggles with high plush but no problem with low.
I bought one last time and am in for a second. The unit isn't smart but is a workhorse
Uh, wait a minute. This is a different model. What is the difference between this on and the A4s?

Found it for all who are interested
"...the main difference between the V3s Pro and the A4s is the fact that the A4s will do a good job cleaning low-pile carpeting and rugs while the V3s Pro will not. Beyond that, the A4s also features a significantly longer battery life at up to 140 minutes compared to the 90 minutes in the V3s Pro"
Think I will pass

I believe up to three Burmese, two Tabby, or maybe 3/4 of a Maine Coon.
I have one of these and I love it. I will say it is most ideal for hardwood, which I believe it says in the description but it will go over low carpet as well UNLESS your carpet has black in it, then it gets very confused, lol. I am missing thresholds and such due to flooring remodeling so this vacuum has a challenging time of it but does just fine despite missing flooring here and there. It does like to get stuck on occasion mostly on one lamp and my front door threshold but since I know this, I just plan for it, otherwise, with a very furry dog, this thing has been a wonder. The remote is great when you need it to spot clean something or help it to the base. I love it and for the price you can't go wrong.
We are already a 2 Roomba household, but they won't reach the rooms mentioned below.
I am looking at this for just 2 guest bedrooms that are rarely used BUT they are carpeted.
Thumbs up or thumbs down??
the V3 is ONLY for hard floors - NOT carpet, something it doesnt state anywhere in the ad or specs. there is no brush like a roomba or reg vacuum, there is only the 2 side wall brushes and a main suction port - its a big mobile dust vac.

I love this vacuum. I was really surprised, because I didn’t think it would be all that great. I have 3 dogs and use it every day. I can steam mop after I run it and don’t have to worry about what it has missed. It’s never left anything behind. My only complaint would be that I have to empty it during the cycle because the dirt bin is pretty small. Still, it is amazing!
