Been looking for a deal on this for ages....refused to pay $50 for a brush and a filter....ebay has some cheap additional filters you can get but they can be washed for quite a while......they will need more cleaning than the plastic blade brush but I'm not sure I'd say "frequent"......the brush is also good for people without pets as it does a better job of getting things off carpet although the plastic blade brush has done a great job of keeping dust from building up. XV-11's (new and used) are also sometimes dirt cheap on ebay...add the brush, upgrade the firmware and you have a XV-21 for a fraction of the cost. repd and TU.

Great catch on this deal. I have spent the past few days looking for a deal to upgrade my Neato. I checked Amazon but their prices go up and down very quickly. Cheapest I've found on this brush is $49 shipped. That deal came with two filters but my XV-11 came with two regular filters so an extra one isn't necessary. Honestly I think the pet filter is just a regular filter with purple plastic. From what I've read though the brush is way better than the plastic paddles. Thanks OP. Repped.

The hepa filters actually have thicker filters that come out kinda like a radiator grille...and they DO trap much finer particles than the default one.....I ran my XV-11 through the house with the new hepa filter I got off ebay the day after running with the regular and it pulled up a decent amount missed the first time around. The vacuum also runs quieter with the hepa filter.

we rarely have to clean our brush. not an issue... although i'll say there's very little, if any, difference in performance on a hard surface between this and the plastic blade that came with it.

the filter is thicker - how much difference it makes is highly debatable.
the brushes - no noticeable difference in performance on a hard floor. I however cannot comment on any difference on carpet, and wouldn't be surprised if it worked better on carpet as the brush may grab the hair that sticks to the carpet far more than our stone floor.

Don't forget about using your discover card points at amazon if you happen to have them.....I did so technically I suppose it was "free" since I don't retain a balance.

Next time, redeem those points for statement credit and use your credit card to buy things. That way you get points for the new purchase and enjoy your credit card protection (in case of dispute, extended warranty, etc...)

I already have this filter and brush on my X-21. Is there ever a reason to get another one? I mean how clean does a filter have to be.

I have the 21 as well and went ahead and bought the extra. The brush def has build up now, and at some point the filter will need to be replaced. Manual says every 6mo I believe. The price is right for spare parts.

I agree it performs amazingly with fur. However, we recently bought an area rug for the living room and I could not be more disappointed with its performance on the rug. The rug is nothing special in terms of thickness, yet the Neato hangs on it every foot or so with "unable to navigate" and I have to move it manually again and again until it's done and it doesn't even cover the whole rug. Firmware updates didn't work for me - tried different USB ports, cables, browsers, etc.
