If Roomba is the Hulk Hogan of robotic vacuums, Neato is the Randy Savage. The company began in earnest at Stanford University's annual entrepreneurial challenge. Since 2010, it's been one of the industry leaders in robotic vacuuming.
The Botvac D75 follows in the footsteps of Neato's original XV lineup. Its unique shape allows for pickup in right-angled corners. Its giant Neato logo houses an infrared sensor for scanning the floor around the unit.
The D75 has received widespread praise from users. They've praised its suction, waste capacity, and intelligence.
Pet owners often deploy robotic vacuums as the first line of defense against stray hair and dander. In this capacity, the D75 is a champion. Several owners have reported the D75 picking up more hair than any other vacuum.
Another key performance advantage for the D75 is its consistency across surface types. Some robotic vacuums are admirable performers on hardwood floors, but miserable failures on carpet. This isn't true of the D75, claim several owners. It's just as good on a thick rug as it is on tile or wood.
The D75 doesn't run as long as some other models, vacuuming for only 30 to 60 minutes at a time. But it has strong programming, returning the unit to its charging station when it's running out of juice.
Neato got its start in 2010 with the XV-21 and XV Signature. It followed up in 2014 with the Botvac lineup. The D75 is a direct upgrade to the 75, much like the 80 and D80. It's another successful model from the vacuuming industry's Macho Man.
I love it and would buy another one in a heartbeat. My floors have seriously never looked better ...Seriously, this has got to be one of my favorite gadgets ever.
Outstanding item. Works great, just sit there and it cleans, recharges and cleans again. We have 2 dogs and the amount of pick up in the vacuum is unreal.
All in all I am impressed so far. When it had finished a display flashed to say it was returning to the base station ... Love it and well recommended.
Overall, I have been extremely happy with the Neato vacuums I've used ... The D75 is even better ... since it has required no human intervention to get unstuck.
It rolls over anything and will always find a way out of a jam. I love this thing!
