Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rover — the DEEBOT D83 in use My wife and I have owned a DEEBOT D83, which we've named "Rover," for eight weeks and have run it manually, not automatically, two or three times a week. We got it primarily to control dog hair from our Norwich Terrier —and it does a good job of that, even with the main agitator brush installed. Dog hair does wrap around the agitator brush, but never to the point of interfering with the operation of the agitator brush or vacuum. Our home has a great room — kitchen (slate floor), dining room (wall-to-wall carpet), foyer (slate floor), living room (hardwood floor with area rug), hallway (hardwood floor), and studio (wall-to-wall carpet) all connected. We block the carpeted areas (dining room and studio) off from the rest by laying dining room chairs on the floor on their sides as boundaries and have Rover vacuum those areas. We then attach a wet or dry disposable cleaning cloth (10 of each included), reposition the chairs, and have Rover vacuum and mop the noncarpeted areas. We've learned to divide the noncarpeted areas, too, because Rover tends to get caught underneath the kitchen cabinets and their doors — unless we free him immediately he'll stop and shut down and we won't discover that until much later, which is why we don't run him on automatic. Rover does get tangled in the fringes of the area rug on the living room floor, so we've learned to remove the area rug and its pad from the living room while running Rover there. We've also learned to move things before siccing Rover on the living room so he can get between them and to put them back after he's done. He also got tangled in the wires and cables under the counter and desk of my wife's studio until I put up a barrier (a 1" x 2" board propped up on two shelf brackets) under the counter and bundled the wires under the desk and ran them around the baseboards. Having Rover clean a bathroom or bedroom is easy — take him in, pick up anything on the floor, turn him on, shut the door, and come back in 15 to 30 minutes to shut him off and move him to another room. Ironically, we've discovered the best way to clean Rover is to vacuum him — especially the dustbin and filters (two — a first-stage micro-fabric filter and a second-stage pleated paper filter that nest together). We've learned to wipe the front shield/bumper behind which the 10 sensors are located because Rover's blind and runs into things if we don't. On edge-clean setting Rover seems to turn the sensors off and find edges —walls, really — by bumping into them. Rover is too big to clean certain spots, for example, between the base of the toilet and the walls in the bathroom, and those have to be vacuumed the old-fashioned way, and he can't do corners — he's round, after all. The engineering is very good in most ways, for example, the nested filters can't be inserted into the dustbin wrong because they're asymmetrical and only fit the right way and the handle of the dustbin locks it into place when lowered, but not in others, for example, I'm waiting for the plastic latch that closes the cover of the dustbin to break because it seems flimsy to me — but I'm a Psychologist, not an Engineer, and I may be wrong. All in all, we're pleased with our purchase — our first "robovac," by the way — and plan to enjoy Rover as long as he's around (500 recharges of the battery and then as many replacement batteries as needed to "feed" him and keep him going).
