PROS

  • The Botvac Connected cleans better than previous Neato vacuums.
  • It's app-enabled; you can even steer the robot manually.
  • The D-shape is a smart design that enables the vacuum to clean corners really well.

CONS

  • It's expensive at $700.
  • The app is too simple and could use some more functions.
  • The initial setup can be a pain.
Neato’s Botvac Connected is a robot vacuum that’s app-enabled so you can operate it remotely. You can even steer it manually like a remote-control car. So, if you spill a bag of potato chips, you can direct the vacuum right to the spot. Neato’s Botvac Connected is D-shaped to clean corners efficiently. It boasts a laser that scans rooms and identifies boundaries and stationary obstacles, and you can create artificial boundaries with a magnetic strip. This vacuum features different modes, including full-powered Turbo and power-saving Eco mode, which runs a little quieter.

Although the Neato Botvac Connected did not pass each test with flying colors, it performed very well and made up for any missed particles with second and third passes. In particular, we were impressed with this robotic vacuum’s approach to walls and furniture, because it cleaned closer to these borders better than other robots we tested.

The Neato Botvac Connected is an impressive little device. Delegating the vast majority of your floor cleaning duties to a robot is a great time saver. While we might complain about the easily-worn finish and the smartphone app, we have no complaints about the core of the device that autonomously cleans your floors.

I’ll admit that robots like the Roomba can drive me crazy with the random patterns. This is usually why I’m not home when my Roomba is going. It’s a great clean, but a bit nerve-wracking to watch. This is where the Botvac has a leg up. This might mean more to different people, but it’s definitely a “pro” in my book.
