Pics or it didn't happen ;)

Alright, I haven't tested out a whole lot of headphones. Really not many at all. That being said, it is tough to do research, but I feel as though I've done quite a bit and found a very good 'bang for your buck' setup.

I have the Monoprice M1060, the Schiit Modi, and the Schiit Vali.

If you will be bringing this around with you, I would change the Vali with the Magni. You might also want to change those open back headphones for their closed counterpart.

I'm not sure if you're familiar with Monoprice, but the jist of their brand is that they copy designs that other companies make. Here is a 'Roomba' that they make. It looks and works exactly the same as a Roomba, but costs less. Here is a 'Dyson' that they make. Once again, it looks the same and probably works the same, for a fraction of the price. Here is a 3D printer that is just a replica (rebadged?) Malyan M300 (which retails at $200 I think).

Anyways, they just make the same stuff as other brands, but cheaper.

Now, look at the M1060 from Monoprice, and look at the Audeze LCD 2. It is very clear to me that Monoprice ripped off that design, but made it for $250 instead of $1000.

Here is a comparison of the two on head-fi. I'll grab a few quotes from the review in case you don't want to read it. It was the first link that showed up on google when I searched "m1060 vs lcd 2".

> Comfort: This one's pretty subjective. For me, the LCD's headband fits nicely over my large head and I have no issues. Both headphones are incredibly heavy, but it's due to the materials they are built with, and I see that as a good thing. I can wear both headphones for hours on end, although I will say that overall, the M1060's are more comfortable.

> SQ wise, the Audeze's win...... But let's go back to the "baby LCD" question on the M1060's. At their given price, the M1060's are a strong performer. Most of the sound characteristics are reminiscent of the LCD-2. I'd say it's less refined (and it is the truth) with the bass being more uncontrolled and most tracks sounding "crowded". The LCD-2 gives the track more room to breathe and really squeezes every ounce out of a well recorded track. With that being said, the M1060's are about 80-85% of the LCD-2's (to my ears) at well under 1/3 the price when new.

> If you have the means, and are looking for a set of warm, open backed cans, the Audeze's are a fantastic choice. However, if you are more budget oriented, the M1060's are a wonderful, cost effective option to the LCD-2.

Let's move on. Joshua Valour made a fantastic comparison video. He is a pretty well respected headphone reviewer, and I personally trust everything he says about them.

I'm watching it now, so I'll just grab some quotes from the video so you don't have to do it. (They won't be word for word unless they have "quotes" around them.)

> The M1060 have a good midrange and high end, but don't have the bass extension that the Audezies(idk how to spell that) do.

> The LCDs have a bit of a treble dip that keeps them less fatiguing.

> The LCDs feel a bit duller while the M1060s are sharper

> Vocals sound good on the M1060 but feel a bit more filled out with the LCDs

> "I am going to give an 'openness factor' to the 1060s "

> The 1060 has a wider soundstage, but the LCDs have better imaging because of the smaller soundstage

> Conclusion: the M1060 is thinner, wider, and crisper. The LCDs are warm, enjoyable, and narrow.

> "The LCD is a better performing headphone in more categores, but I don't know if it's a 3x better headphone"

> "I would say that the 1060s to my preference sound like a more expensive headphone than they are"

Anyways, the fact that he even made this video makes me think that he thinks that they're close enough to be comparable. The fact that he doesn't think the LCDs (which are known for being very good headphones) aren't worth 3x the price is also very impressive for the M1060s.

Alright, so that's good enough in my opinion. I think you got the idea. I think that the M1060 or M1060c would be a very good headphone for the money.

Now, why did I get the Schiit stack? Well, I like the way it looks, especially with that tube. It actually matches the M1060s well, because he mentioned they were a bit thin, and I imagine the tube fills it out a bit more. But I'm not 100% certain.

Hope this helps!

Edit: I'd like to point out that there have been a few revisions of the M1060s, so if you see stuff talking about bad build quality or whatever, that has all been taken care of.

Robot Vacuums. They're life changing. The cheap-ish $150-$200 models don't even perform significantly worse.

I recently bought this one, and while It's got some issues that prevent it from being a 5-star gadget, it's still pretty great. It fits under my couch and usually finds its way home, but it seems to be in a deep sleep when it's scheduled to start cleaning, so I have to trigger it manually. Most robovac reviews focus on the strength of any given vacuum, which is a factor, but less so than for an upright or canister because it runs every day. I think you can probably shop around and find a better deal on it if you order from China.

I'm still running a couple of Neato XV-21s as well, and really like it, powerful suction, a backlit screen and better scheduling than the one above. Neato robotics has excellent customer support, too. They replaced a battery on a refurbished, just-out-of-warranty XV-21 at no cost to me.

A few caveats: neither type handles rug fringe well, and corners stay dirty where neither robot can reach, and floor edges stay dirty with the XV-21, but that should be fixed in newer, more expensive models with rotary side brushes. They both tend to wind long hair around the beater brush and need to be manually cleaned. Still, they pay for themselves in man-hours saved from floor cleaning.

tl;dr: I'm apparently a robot vacuum enthusiast. Who knew?

u/m4gpi · 1 pointr/housekeeping

I have two cats and all hard flooring, on a single level. I bought a “cheap” robot vacuum and it has changed my life. It is a Ecovacs Deebot N79S; at the time it cost 300$ full price but I got it on sale for 150$ (during US Black Friday). It is designed for hard floors, a small place (my apartment is maybe 700sqft) and to deal with pet hair. It has a small hepa filter.

There are many similar models now of varying price ranges, that are designed for low floors and to deal with pet hair. I have to clear the floors before running it (pick up toys, small area rugs, etc.) and empty the capture bin after each use, but it’s amazing. Honestly it does a better job than I would with a push vacuum, because it gets under the bed and into small corners where the dust bunnies are. It has a few different modes, and can be run from a smart phone over wifi, but I haven’t really bothered with that. The best thing is I can start it up, and leave the house. I run mine 1-2 times a week.

If you want a standard vacuum, it’s important that it has a hepa filter to capture pet dander.

Also, as you’ve noticed sweeping is almost pointless - a Swiffer dry cloth mop is much better at actually clearing the pet hair from floors. You can make your own cloth mops, and they work pretty well if you are opposed to the disposable mops.

u/LeftMySoulAtHome · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I seriously scaled up to the iRobot Bravva. It's not a scrubber like the Scooba, so it's not as expensive. It does a better job than I do with a swiffer.

It's still spendy, but it was a great investment. All of my rooms are laminate and tile, except one room with carpet. It's really quiet and does a great job. We named him Mr. Sparkle. hehe.

I also have a Roomba, which was another great investment. They run overnight while we're all asleep. As a disabled lady, these are my favorite tools. ;)

u/anoliveanarrow · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
  1. As I am 4 years sober, the closest I come to wine is my favorite British candy, winegums. They are a necessary school supply because I need to feed my brain during all the late night studying I'll be doing.

  2. Brooms are outdated and rather drap. Instead, I prefer to ride in style on my roomba. How else am I to get from class to class? =]

  3. Hats are not my thing. Don't have the face shape for them. But a helmet for roomba riding would suit me better.

  4. Take me away calgon? Nah. Take me away Cassandra Clare to the wonderful land of Shadowhunters, Demons and Faeries. Anything to escape my studies.

  5. My current loot container is overflowing. Mayhaps a larger one for all of my girlish treasures? You're never fully dressed without a smile and some eyeliner. =p

    Bonus - Superheroes don't wear capes. I'll take mine in the form of a rough around the edges demon hunter who loves pie. And who might also be about 4 inches tall in this case and can easily fit in my pocket for entertainment purposes of course. ;]

    (Already posted a Mischief Managed, so do I need to do it again? Or is this good?)
u/partisan98 · 7 pointsr/starterpacks

Ever given robot vacuums like roomba a try? I picked up a very highly rated budget one for $150 and most of the reviews are from dog owners saying how much it helps stop dog hair from getting everywhere.

Honestly its my favorite home item, i recommend getting one to all my friends and i bought one for my parents. Its great, you just set it on your phone to run however often you want and just come home and dump the container.It also makes you keep your floors clear because if you leave jackets on the floor it will drive onto them and get stuck. Its honestly amazing how much cleaner it keeps your place.

I got a Deebot N79s refurbished from amazon for about $130 but the new ones run around $200 for the best budget ones.
While reading way to many reviews it basically comes down to these two in the budget category.

Deebot N79s $211.97. It has 3.9 Stars out of 5 with 4,818 reviews. It is quiet enough you can run it in the same room while watching TV. I got this one because of the App support means i can easily control it from my phone and i can tell to to run whenever even if i am not home.

The other budget option is
RoboVac 11S $239.99 but also has a $20 of coupon available. It has 4.4 out of 5 with 6,677 reviews.

Both of these can be scheduled to run whenever you want it to. I have mine set to automatically run Monday and Friday when i am at work but i live alone with no pets, you can easily set it to run every day. Also it will fit under a lot of your furniture and pull so many dust bunnies out its incredible.

u/ModernCastle · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

My pleasure, happy to help!

Regarding the Shark robot vacuum. It seems to have all the standard features you'd expect. I like that it's a little bit lighter at 5.5 pounds (less likely to knock stuff over) and I also like what appears to be a pretty heavy duty brush roll. The brush roll on several models I've tested so far have been underwhelming. The Shark Ion has pretty solid reviews in Amazon, though I'm a little concerned about their review meta score https://reviewmeta.com/amazon/B075JRB2Z9 Despite the "warning" grade, they still hold steady at 4.5 stars.

At $291 on Amazon that's a pretty solid price.

I may end up buying one of these on Black Friday and adding it to my testing queue. If so, I can try to get that review done sooner.

u/Everything_is_peachy · 16 pointsr/blackfriday

Highly recommend the Xiaomi Mai Gen 2/Roborock S50. Not only is it cheaper than the Roomba, it cleans better and more methodically. Check out the COMMENTS section here: https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-robot-vacuum/

It is on amazon for $400 after a coupon now: https://smile.amazon.com/Roborock-Robotic-Connectivity-Navigating-Capacity/dp/B0792BWMV4

I have one and so far it has been amazing, it cleans thoroughly and has zero issues. The dust bin is always full when I empty it after the occasional cleaning, meaning it does its job really well. However, the company also does Facebook giveaways and promos - I got mine for $350 because of a discount code that I won by participating in a promo. For value AND efficiency, I really can't recommend this enough. But, do your own research as well - this is a big purchase. Don't just go with a Roomba because it's popular - the wirecutter article and comments, especially, are a good place to start reading.

u/timsy321 · 7 pointsr/homeautomation

The iLife A4 is by far the best bang for the buck. I have two for less than the price of others l, and it works fantastic. Most of my friends and family now own the same model after witnessing mine perform. Random pattern clean, but it rarely struggles to get back to base and has a max clean mode that is not loud at all - with great suction. We have pets, and this thing is always full of small hair particles. It generally goes over the same spot numerous times, which results in a deeper clean.

u/steve9207 · 2 pointsr/roomba

> if it is mostly tile I would definitely take a look at the braava jet.

I'm in the market for a roomba or something similar. This is the first I've heard about the Braava Jet, but I haven't done a ton of research. I saw one on Amazon for $240 (the 380t model).

We've got dogs that shed, our main floor where this would be used is tile and hardwood (except two bedrooms that are carpeted, remaining bedrooms / rooms are hardwood).

What would you suggest for someone looking to clean up the dog hair and would prefer something that could do a "mid-week" mopping? (I'm expecting that I'll still have to mop the tile by hand once a week, unless they're that good).

NOTE: I'd rather get something that works great on the hardwood / tile, even if it means skipping the two carpeted rooms.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

u/ukbabz · 1 pointr/CasualUK

We've got a Bosch one like this but an older model. Does a good job at clearing up the house and have had it for 6-7 years and going strong.

On prime day we bough a [Eufy 11c] (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Eufy-RoboVac-Cleaning-Schedule-Self-Docking/dp/B0769G8BC2/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1542708488&sr=8-3&keywords=eufy+11c) for £180. It's great for daily little cleans when we are at work.

We've got a house rabbit who sheds lots, and a beagle who leaves a few hairs around too. The combination of once a week with big hoover and robovac a few times a week seems to keep the floors looking good.

u/refugefirstmate · 2 pointsr/dogs

Aside from all the suggestions that have been made, two more: a robot vacuum and if you have hard floors, an electric mop.

I'm in TX. We have six dogs (mostly pits) who are indoor-outdoor at will. Their yard is half a fenced, wooded acre. From the beginning of October to the middle of January it rained torrents every other day. Onto clay that is well beyond absorbing more water. We're at the top of a hill and there are still ponds of water. And the amount of (thankfully, gray not red) clay six active dogs will bring into the house in a day....well, I think it topped out at about 2 cups. They'd come in with virtual platform shoes of clay on their feet. And the dust..OMG the dust. As fine as photocopier toner.

Especially as I'm what the Brits call "house proud" (and former OCD cleaner), I was about at my wits' end until I bought the two aforementioned gadgets. The deebot runs 4x a day, and I now only mop every 3-4 days.

It's like I got my house back. Now the dogs are nothing but fun for me.

Okay,the gadgets:



Note that the mop (which I got in cordless form, new on ebay for $125) is not a steam mop; instead, it squirts cleaner on the floor and then immediately vacuums it up, like a carpet cleaner does. Best thing since wi-fi, I swear.

You can also get velcro belly-bands for males who mark, and having raised a foster litter of pups, I strongly recommend Odoban. Only thing I know that actually gets the stink out of absolutely everything.

u/JohnnyBrillcream · 3 pointsr/LifeProTips

This might be a bit odd but I recently picked up one of these, ILIFE A4.

I dreaded the every other week vacuuming/cleaning schedule. Since I got this thing I rarely need to vacuum anymore, just two small carpeted areas. I swear this thing finds dirt I never knew I had.

Side effect is it's reduced the amount of dust in the house so dusting isn't needed as often and it's actually motivated me to keep other areas clean since this little thing does all the heavy lifting. It also "polishes" the floor a bit so not only are they clean but have a nice shine to them.

It really only works on very low knit carpet and wood/tile floors. It will clean two of my four carpets and both tile and wood floors every time it runs, and I run it daily.

Note: Do some research if you decide to get one, they can be found for $160 to $170 USD.

As far as cooking, I'm there with you. I used to cook all the time I just don't have the motivation anymore. I started to make my own pizza dough and that has been a help as I'm constantly trying to make it better and come up with new topping ideas. I made a Jerk Chicken and Smoked Brisket one a few weekends ago at a friends party.

u/MA_doubleT · 2 pointsr/AskMen

I just bought this one a couple weeks ago, it was on sale for $179, looks like it's a bit more than that at the moment. It has great reviews and works absolutely perfect for me, I live alone in a 1 bedroom apartment with no pets. It cover my entire place, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen/dining area and living room without getting stuck on anything. I was concerned it wouldn't be able to find it's way back to the base due to the somewhat strange layout but it has made it back every time so far.

After a couple weeks I absolutely love it. I have it scheduled to run M/W/F while I'm at work and coming home to a freshly vacuumed apartment is the best.


u/billin · 4 pointsr/gadgets

Given your 3 cats, you might want to try and get a Roomba Pet Series model. Compared to the regular model, the Pet Series' bin is larger and, most importantly, the brush is designed for easier removal of pet hair. That being said, I've owned a Roomba for 5 years, and in that time it has saved me probably days of vacuuming. I don't own pets, but I have 3 young kids who are constantly dropping dirt, crumbs, etc. Even when the floors look clean, the Roomba winds up picking up lint and dust in its bin - great, great stuff.

u/Sootea · 34 pointsr/AskWomen

We have the Roborock S5 vacuum off of Amazon.

It's quite pricey and not everyone can justify for an expensive vacuum cleaner, but this model is quite smart and is considerably cheaper than the mainstream brand (the equivalent costs about $800 or more if I'm not mistaken).

I used to have the cheaper robot vacuum and it wasn't very "smart". It'd bump into everything, get stuck and had a hard a hard time navigating back "home" (charging dock) to recharge.

I had my doubts on this new one we just got because of our past experience but we liked the fact that the floor was so clean every day and pretty smart. We have tile floors. You know that feeling when you're walking around barefoot and you just stepped on something dry or the bottom of your feet just feels dusty or crumbly? Yeah, no more of that! (We used to vacuum only on weekends)

Before I talk endlessly about the joys of owning a robot vacuum, I'll stop here :P Let me know if you have any questions though. We've owned this for more than a month now and it's been running every day for about 45 minutes, cleaning our whole one floor house. We also have a cat and it picks up cat hair just fine.

I bought this Robotic Vacuum around Christmas last year and it was on sale for $180 and the thing has been awesome! I was very skeptical because I didn’t think it would work or get the whole house or for that matter pick up anything. I never have to worry about vacuuming and the thing just picks up everything. It goes off everyday while I’m at work and it’s one task I never have you worry about.

u/controlmypad · 0 pointsr/homeautomation

I was on the fence for a long time and it took getting one for Xmas as a gift to finally get one into my hands. It is the cheapest $129 vacuum, but if you don't require "automation" or fancy WiFi this thing is a workhorse and cleans very well. I was given the iLife A4 and I have crazy irregular slate floors and it does the floors and carpet well. Like any of them you just have to empty and clean it every time to keep it happy. Edit: also I don't care that it doesn't always find the dock, I imagine most vacs wouldn't since I want the dock in a corner out of sight.


u/arizona-lad · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

I live in the Desert Southwest, and we went with ceramic wood-look planks:


Stays cool in the summer. A breeze to keep clean. Just an occasional mop and you are good to go. Totally waterproof, spillproof, kid and petproof.


Cheap and easy to install. Since I did it myself, with a helper, total cost was $2.86 a square foot, materials and labor.

For dust, I use Alfred:


I tell Alexa to start Alfred while I am at work. He's done and recharging by the time I get home.

You got to get one of these things. Haven't pulled out the real vacuum in months........

u/jnewland · 1 pointr/homeautomation

I have a Roomba 650 and this aftermarket wifi cover and really enjoy it. Home Assistant integrates with Thinking Cleaner perfectly, and its Alexa support enables "Hey Alexa, turn on the roomba." Saying that still feels magical every time.

u/calantorntain · 10 pointsr/personalfinance

Didn't get a Roomba, I got a Neato XV-12 from Woot. The consensus on the woot message board was that this one has better suction, and that it's algorithm (it scopes out the room with a LASER and uses that as a map, rather than bouncing around randomly) is superior.

I put googly eyes on mine :3

u/carlotta3121 · 2 pointsr/Flipping

If it's the Mint (old name)/Ibraava robotic vacuum that shows using Swiffer cloths or fabric ones, they're now made by iRobot. There are different models, one you can run a wet cloth using it.

I LOVE mine, it's much better for me for pet hair and easy maintenance. I used Roombas since they first came out and switched to Mint before iRobot took over.


u/punkbananas · 1 pointr/Advice

I live in NYC so 2500 sqft is considered medium. LOL. I guess it depends on location.

This is the one I use. It is just under $200, works great, and is WiFi-capable so you can control it via app. I recommend it!

u/C_D_199 · 2 pointsr/homeautomation

I have the DEEBOT N79S and it works perfectly. I never have to sweep anymore unless I track in a whole lot of mud which is very rare. I also have 4 dogs and it takes care of the pet hair with ease. I did a ton of research before buying this one and it has turned out to be a great buy! They are usually $300 but I just looked and they are on sale on amazon for $230 right now. Here it is on Amazon.

u/natsw79 · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

I got this one. Not a Roomba but it's a similar type device. It does a fantastic job on my carpet, better than the linoleum floor for some reason since reviewers were stating the opposite.

u/ChrisF79 · 1 pointr/Pets

My wife and I got this Roomba for pets (that's important) as a wedding gift and to say it's life changing is an understatement. It does an amazing job in corners but as said elsewhere, it won't replace vacuuming. It will however make it feel as though you recently vacuumed and cut down the frequency that you vacuum by a ton. Just be sure to keep the tray empty (it fills up faster than you think) and you'll absolutely love it.

[Shark ION RV750] (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B075JRB2Z9/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_SfB9BbMJ9QWYG]) on sale for 220. Plus if it breaks or you dont care for it return to amazon. Kohls also has a black friday deal where you get 60$ kohls cash but its $250. It seems to be a better vacuum compared to the Roomba based on video reviews and its cheaper. Shark has a larger debris cartridge, 2 edge spinners ( roomba has one ) and seems to clean better since it bounces around more and doesnt move in straightlines like the roomba. Newer Shark ION has shit reviews so stick to the older one.

u/Sendbeer · 1 pointr/VacuumCleaners

Looks like you have a new option, and it reviews pretty good. Costs $360 on Amazon right now without any BS (don't forget to click the coupon button).

u/hopeless93 · 5 pointsr/dogs

So worth it but I wasn't ready for the price tag so I bought this other brand below. It's amazing. I run it 2 or more times a day. My hound just sheds by existing.... It works very well on our laminate flooring. I wouldn't get this one for lots of carpeted areas though.

I'm also wondering this.

  • It's a bit suspicious given that this model can't be bought anywhere other than amazon.

  • This model only has 10 reviews. It's almost like it was just added to amazon for this sale. The 650 has over 2000 reviews.

  • The thetracktor page for the 614 has very little fluctuation in price, which is a bit suspicious imo. The thetracktor page for the 650 has a lot more regular price movment.

    I'd say that although it's a reasonable deal for a Roomba, I don't think it's as good a deal as they'd like us to believe.

    edit: According to the the Amazon page, the only difference between the 614 and 650 is the scheduling feature. I'd say it's a pretty decent deal. I may end up going for it.

I use the Amazon wishlist extension that lets you add things from other websites. If money was no object [this would be mine] (http://www.yesasia.com/us/sailor-moon-time-key-key-of-space-time-silver-925-pendant-k18-gold/1033863903-0-0-0-en/info.html).
Otherwise, this is something I would buy that is legitimately on my [wishlist] (http://www.amazon.com/iRobot-Roomba-Vacuum-Cleaning-Robot/dp/B008LX6JWG/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=19XIKAS79AJYG&coliid=I3HCRQBJ8C5P56).

We have a robot that picks up dog hair (on solid floors) pretty well. We didn't get a "name brand" so maybe that's why? We did a lot of research into ours specifically for pet hair. It's an Ecovacs if you're interested. My 1 year old is deathly afraid of our robot though.

I got a Eufy 11S on Amazon this fall and it's AMAZING. It was rated as high as $600 models on Consumer Reports. Great on carpet and hard floors. It's listed at $225 now, but I got it for $149 over the holidays.

u/Microthrowaway64 · 2 pointsr/pics

Much better than a Roomba.

A review -

If my Neato were a maid, I would fire him (I haven't named him but I've decided he's a he, probably because I am being reverse-sexist) due to these CONS:

  • He misses spots near corners and along edges (walls or low furniture).

  • He can't handle getting everything under the dining room table (has trouble getting around all the chair legs)

  • He has trouble transitioning from wood to high pile carpet (extra cushy carpet in our daughter's room). He actually got stuck once and I had to give him a little nudge

  • He generally leaves a line of crumbs along the perimeter of our area rug, I guess from the change in elevation.

  • The apparent "automatic door detection" seems a bit buggy because he seems to be doing 2-3 rooms at the same time, even though the manual says that he's supposed to finish off one room before moving onto the next.
    This may be because some of our doorways are on the wide side. I don't know.

    However, my Neato is not a maid. My Neato is a slave who works for free. So, given that, he does a pretty okay job, given these PROS:
  • Suction seems strong - picked up a lot of loose fibers left behind by my vacuum

  • picks up hair off carpet better than my vacuum (we are part Italian and very hairy and we shed a lot so this is very important to us)

  • I haven't had him lose himself in the house yet
u/KittenTablecloth · 2 pointsr/OldSchoolCool

For Valentine's day I asked my boyfriend for a robot vacuum instead of flowers. I know last year he spent over $100 for one of those elaborate arrangements, and I was able to convince him that a robot vacuum would give me pleasure and happiness every day instead of flowers that will die in a week. I did a bunch of research and we got an ILIFE vacuum, which was only $180 on amazon. Totally affordable, you should look into it. An $800 name brand Roomba might be better if you have carpet, but this guy works wonders on hardwood. I am not a shill. Just a happy girl with a big, shedding dog and now constantly clean floors.

Edit: I bought the ILIFE A4. Just looked it up on Amazon to link it and there is apparently an updated version they just released called the A4S which is $220 but now you can buy the older model I have for only $120

u/jkeyser14 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

How about a Roomba? Schedule it to vacuum your floors while you are work and keep the pet hair down. It's also fun to watch how the pets react. For example, one of my dogs likes to chase it around and bark at it.


u/FinanceCard · 1 pointr/homeautomation

> 15 square meters? Thats very small 🤔

Yeah, after I buy my bed and wardrobe, there's like 10 sqm of vacumable surfaces left. It's why I am looking for something rather cheap :P But i guess that for area, it's not worth 350 bucks. This seems cheap, but doesn't have mapping, and my room is T-shaped, so not sure if it would be good there.

For my 600 sq ft apartment, I ordered the Xiaomi Gen 1 vacuum for $250 new on eBay from overseas. It can be hard to find a seller pop up for that price and I also have a dog.

If you don't care about the laser mapping and advanced features, the Deebot N79S (around $220, smartphone control) or the new Eufy 11s (physical remote, normally $220 but on sale for $187 on Amazon) are very solid options. Eufy 11s does let you schedule with the remote but it's also slimmer and more powerful than the N79.

Get yourself one of these bad boys and some duct tape. Now your also gonna want t long Ethernet cable dependent on the size of your house. Next make sure you get a POE access point such as this Unifi device. Now I think you know where I'm going with this, and you will NEED to up your macgyver skills. This has the added benefit of making sure the vacuum will always have a good wireless signal.

u/Take-to-the-highways · 1 pointr/ThriftStoreHauls

They make a special roomba for pet hair as standard roombas don't pick it up well/fill quickly. It's about $250 on Amazon. I've never used a roomba so I can't vouch for them but I've heard many good things.


u/elvadot · 2 pointsr/aww

There is a model for households with pets, which I think works pretty well. My cat has long silky hairs and a dense down-like undercoat, my dog has a brisk, stiff coat and I have long, thick, wavy hair. The Roomba gets everything.

u/rainbowb · 0 pointsr/VacuumCleaners

I'd recommend this Haier XShuai C3 Smart Robot Vacuum Cleaner. It is the first Haier vacuum robot with Alexa's Amazon Echo, so as to remotely control the robot with your voice. Its built-in camera, speakers and microphone allows you to connect your smartphone 24/7 with your home and talk or check on your family. There are several available modes to clean: with the Auto Mode, the C3 finds the closest wall to locate itself in the room to then, starts cleaning in a methodical pattern. The Z-Mode also uses the methodical pattern to clean, but it initiates the cleaning from its current position. The Spot Mode for deep cleaning areas where there is a higher concentration of dirt, stains, or other particles. The Edge Mode is perfect to clean along the walls. The Pure Suction Mode will suck in the dirt instead of brushing it away.

gen 2 has mopping too, but also costs $200 more.

seriously the best robot vaccum on the market today considering the vaccums it is compared to and slightly underperforms against costs three times more.

Eu mi-am luat un aspirator robot și este una din cele mai bune cumpărături ever. Atât de bună ca am luat aspiratoare d-astea cadou la toată lumea (familie, prieteni, cand a trebuit sa le dau cadouri) și toți sunt super mulțumiți.

L-am lăsat programat să meargă în fiecare zi când nu sunt acasă, si nivelul de praf s-a redus considerabil!

u/Radagastsbrowneye · 10 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I bought this one. I have collies that shed and I’ve been running it every other day and immediately cleaning it out, been working out great.

u/krische · 1 pointr/roomba

In my opinion, if you don't want to pay for the i7+ or s9+ line of Roomba, I would look at other brands. Unless you are trying to go super cheap, I don't see a point in spending money on a random navigation robot anymore, LIDAR/vision is the way to go.

Watch this Vacuum Wars video: https://youtu.be/4Fed8durfb4

So I would look at the Roborock S5 $499, the Roborock S4 $399, or the Neato D4 $349.

Our hand maid, Mei, sometimes closes the door to the bathroom while cleaning and gets stuck in there.

I get home and hear her yelling in Chinese from across the house and have to help her get out. Meanwhile, my cat is outside the bathroom, gloating.

If you are on a budget, the roomba 675 will do the job. It does not have any fancy features but it does connect to WiFi which lets you set schedules and run cleaning jobs while away from home. I have half of your square foot area, a dog and a 9 year old.

A Roomba! I have two cats and my husband and I both work... fur everywhere. I have always wanted a Roomba, but, it's not super necessary. I'd rather have the second-most expensive item on my list, the Harry Potter boxed set, because I don't own all the books (!!)!(!)!(!) despite being the biggest fan there is, and the ones I do own are kind of thrashed. THAT I must own.

u/serious_wat · 1 pointr/gadgets

Roombas are generally considered the best cleaning robots out there, followed closely by Neatos. I'd recommend the Roomba 650. It has all of the useful features with none of the fluff.

Most cleaning robots have the features you've specified, and they'll clean well on hard floors. The Roomba has virtual walls, it has dirt detection and will hover over a spot that's particularly dirty. It returns to its dock and charges itself automatically.

The main problem you're going to run into is that you're cleaning a huge space. I've seen people say that a Roomba will clean up to ~185 square meters, so your showroom is much, much bigger than that. You don't want your Roomba to die stranded in the middle of the showroom floor. You'd need probably three or four robots, each set up to handle a different section, blocking them off using virtual walls.
