Neato Robotics joined the robot vacuum cleaner revolution in 2010, nine years after the seminal Electrolux Trilobite, when they introduced their XV line of robovacs. In 2014, they added the Botvac line, with four models -- the 70e, the 75, the 80 and the 85 -- each of which plays a slight variation on the basic Botvac theme. The spécialité de la Botvac 75 model is dust. If your allergy to dust makes you break out into violent sneezing whenever the particulate matter on your floor starts building up, Neato recommends you choose this model, assuming you don't want to cut corners by getting the 70e, the bargain Botvac model, or one of the two more expensive, higher-end models that are better optimized for handling pet fur. (Those would be the Botvacs 80 and 85, which differ in the available selection of filters). Neato doesn't seem to have considered the possibility that you might be allergic to both dust and pet fur, in which case you should probably make your decision based on whichever allergy is worse.
If you want to move way up the price scale and get state-of-the-art Wi-Fi connectivity with a smartphone app controller, you could also select the [Botvac Connected], which is roughly equivalent to [iRobot's Roomba 980] in terms of its Wi-Fi capabilities, except that the Roomba 980 is more expensive still.
It's the allergy-friendly features for the most part that set the Botvac line apart from the lower-end XV line. And it's the lack of Wi-Fi connectivity that set it apart from the higher-end Connected line. If you have pet and/or dust allergies and don't need to control your robot vacuum cleaner from your iPhone, Neato's Botvac line is a good place to look.
This thing is absolutely, positively life-changing. Imagine if your floors were self-cleaning. That's basically what this thing makes happen.
I am extremely disappointed in this Botvac 75. I must send it back. There is something wrong with the programming and it just goes around and around the walls ...
Very good! Works well above expectations! Good suction and seems smart about how clean the room.
Neato does great vacuuming around the house. We have hard floor all over the house with plenty of open space. It picks up 95% of the dirt, but lacks the deep clean.
Amazing just how much this machine picks up! Incredibly good spatial recognition, and copes with even cluttered spaces.
