Even if Amazon doesn't refund the difference, you can order a new one, initiate the return process from the old one and just send the new one back with the return label.

Amazon won't refund the difference, guess I'm returning Darth


It works pretty well for what I need it to do. If you understand the limitations of robot vacuums in general you'll be happy with it. It doesn't replace a proper full cleaning of the floors, but I run it daily to get the cat hair and crumbs and stuff off the floor and it works really well for that. I only use it on the hard surface floors in my home though as that's where I need the daily help. It handles the carpet pretty well though. I think most people who are unhappy with robot vacuums don't understand their limitations and have unrealistic expectations.

Man I just bought this 2 weeks ago at 379. I paid with my Amex though so no CC price protection. Wonder if Amazon will refund the difference. I'm still within return period if needed.

Just posted earlier on the deal from a couple weeks ago when it dropped to $379.99. Bought one this mortning to replace an older Neato XV-21 that's getting a bit tired and is having trouble with our new area rugs.

Damn! That is a good price...

Any convincing arguments as to why not to get it? House is fully integrated with Samsung devices/SmartThings/Alexa. Need it to vacuum roughly single floor plan 1000~ sq with kitchen, small bed/bathroom and large living space.

Great deal! Thanks OP! I would highly recommend the extended warranty for $40, my neato breaks every few months

I've always said that Darth Vader sucks, but... now I can be literal about it!

How long does the battery last?
I had to return Samsung 7010 because of crappy battery.

Edit: Just read that this model has resume cleaning, that's good at least.
Mapping and resume cleaning are the two options I'm looking for.

Don't worry about the suction power. Samsung bots are far better than Roomba's.

is this smarter than your average Neato? My dumb neato gets stuck everywhere, runs over things that it should clearly avoid. So I have to ensure the floor is 'neato ready' before the schedule fires off.

Does this work well on the dark color floor? I know some of the vaccuum bots just kept getting lost on the dark floor.

This machine has problems going from surface to surface. We have rugs in our kitchen, flush/fatigue mats and the Roomba went over them no problem. This one won't and stops from carpet to tile alot too.
