Performance Neato XV-

The XV Signature Pro -- which features that same specialty brushroll and pleated filter -- set the bar pretty high in our pet hair tests last year, but the XV- was still able to surpass it, proving to be just as powerful with pet hair as Neato claims. Still, the difference was irly small, and not nearly as noticeable as the difference we saw ween the two in terms of brain power. The XV Signature Pro clearly seems to be the more intelligent machine and the ter navigator, which to me are both r more significant than a minor upgrade in pet hair performance. Since the XV Signature Pro only costs $ more than the XV-, I think its the more well-rounded of the two, and the ter buy overall. 本文来自织梦

The XV- sucks up pet hair ter than any other Performance Neato XV-robot vacuum weve tested.

N/A As you can see, the Neato XV- reigned supreme in our pet hair test, picking up more of the stuff than any other robot vacuum that weve tested. As a matter of ct, Neatos currently sweeping the podium, with the silver and bronze going to the XV Signature Pro and the XV Essential, respectively. Given that the XV Essential is the only one of the three not to feature the specialized pet hair brushroll, this ordering makes sense, and reinforces Neatos claim that the brushroll brings ter performance. 织梦内容管理系统

Youll start the XV- by tapping a button on the cleaner itself, or by scheduling it to start automatically at a specific time. Thats certainly more basic than much of the competition, but theres one nice scheduling feature here: you can set the XV- to run at different times on different days. Many robot vacuums will only let you pick a single time for the cleaner to run at across all days.

Another saving grace of the brushroll is that it does a good job of moving hair into the bin without letting too much of it get tangled up along the way. Those weigh-in results dont include hair that we have to pick out of the brushroll (which is one of the big reasons the XV Essential scored a little lower than its brethren). It was certainly a stark difference from what I saw with the Infinuvo Hovo -- that robot vacuums brushroll couldnt handle pet hair at all. dedecms.com

To control where the XV- goes (or to be more specific, where it does not go) youll use magnetic boundary markers that unroll onto the ground. The XV- wont pass over them, it easy to block off a doorway or a particular corner of the room. Some users will no doubt appreciate the simplicity of the boundary markers, as well as the ct that they wont need to worry about batteries running down, the way they will with the invisible wall generators weve seen from other competitors, such as the Lighthouses the Roomba uses. Still, those Lighthouses are smart enough to turn off and allow the Roomba to pass into a second area after it finishes cleaning the first one, a level of functionality you wont get with Neato. At any rate, the XV- comes with a -foot strip of boundary markers which you can cut into multiple pieces as needed. An additional -foot roll will cost you $..

Aside from that specialty brushroll and the pleated filter, this robot vacuum is a little light on features. 本文来自织梦

Now, were taking a look back at the XV-, a Neato robot vacuum released in which promises to do a superior job at picking up pet hair thanks to its specially-designed brushroll and filter. At a price of $, it isnt a cheap device, but its certainly more affordable than the iRobot Roomba or the LG Hom-Bot Square, which retail for $ and $, respectively. 内容来自dedecms

Its no secret that were big ns of what Neato Robotics is doing in the world of vacuums. Last year, the XV Signature Pro was one of the big standouts among all the appliances that we tested, offering Roomba-level cleaning power at a fraction of the cost. Last month, we took a look at the XV Essential, which offers a similar level of performance at an even lower price point.

Laser-guided navigation system aside, features arent Neatos strong suit. You wont find remote controls with any of their robot vacuums, nor will you find advanced, customizable cleaning modes. Neatos dont use side-spinning brushes to help clean along baseboards, and they dont come with ncy, programmable invisible walls.

One approach isnt inherently ter than the other. Throughout our testing, Ive been impressed with the effectiveness of both navigational styles, although perhaps not more so than the first time I watched the XV Signature Pro gradually map out a crowded living room, then zoom back and forth across it while nimbly dodging all of the furniture legs and cabinetry in its path. Im not convinced that the XV- would be quite so adept at finding its way around that same room -- but more on that in just a bit.

织梦好,好织梦

In the end, the features that set the XV- apart are the specialty brushroll and the pleated filter,嘉爱呢 neither of which come with the previous generation Neatos, the XV- and XV-. Its worth noting, however, that Neato sells a Pet and Allergy Upgrade Kit for $. that includes the XV-s brushroll and filter. If you already own one of these older Neatos and youre looking for stronger performance, the kit might be worth it -- but if youre planning on buying an older Neato at retail price, then tacking on the kit, dont bother. At a total price of $, youd be ter off spending the same amount buying a new XV Signature Pro, which, like the XV-, already comes packaged with the improved brushroll and filter.

That being said, the XV- is an undeniably solid robot vacuum. Like its siblings in the Neato mily, it sits right in the sweet spot ween you-get-what-you-pay-for budget models and pricier vacuums that promise to clean out your bank account just as well as they clean up your floors. It isnt the specific Neato that Id choose, but then again, I dont have long-haired animals shedding all over my apartment. If I did, I dont think Id hesitate to buy this robot vacuum and set it to work.

A good robot vacuum should be able to perform well on multiple types of floor suces and pick up a variety of debris types with a minimal amount of intervention from the user. I decided to start with the XV-s calling card: pet hair. Like every robot vacuum that weve tested before it, I ran the tests on low-pile carpet, a plushier mid-pile carpetPerformance, and on hardwood floors.

The XV- is no exception to any of this. Aside from its normal cleaning mode, the XV- only offers a basic spot cleaning mode. Theres no remote, so you wont be able to steer it around the room, either. If you want to move the XV- somewhere specific, youll need to pick it up and carry it there. 内容来自dedecms

Lets get one thing out of the way: the XV- looks an awful lot like a Super Nintendo. If, like me, you happen to geek out over classic -bit gaming, then youll probably get a kick out of the design. Nintendo nostalgia aside, I think the touch of color makes for a more playful-looking robot vacuum than the stark white, Stormtrooper-esque XV Essential or the black and grey, Darth Vader-ish XV Signature Pro (fine, Im a Star Wars geek, too.)

The Neato XV- does a good job of passing hair through the brushroll and into the bin with minimal tangles. 织梦内容管理系统

It also uses the same laser-guided navigation system to detect walls and obstacles before it weaves back and forth across the room in neat, orderly little rows. This is a dramatic difference ween Neato and other robot vacuums -- most notably Roombas -- which bounce and swirl around the room in seemingly chaotic shion.

Like the other Neatos, the XV- is a rather noisy little machine, so youll definitely want to try and use it while youre out of the house. Also like the other Neatos, it features a design thats flat in the front and rounded in the back. This is supposed to help it clean alongside walls and head straight into corners, and in our tests, it hugged the baseboards as promised, just as the other models did when we tested them.
