I would be very wary of buying Ecovac products. I own the first model they ever sold and the follow up model. The first model was a solid product that curiously was replaced with a new model within 3 months of being available once it had received a decent number of 5 star reviews on amazon. I bought the second iteration and it has been trash. The sensors on it will go out in 3-6 months. I warrantied the first one after about 5 months and they sent me a new one. The new one also went out within 3 months.

This was their email denying my warranty claim. "The robot is indeed equipped with the anti-collision sensors inside the bumper which can detect obstacles and let the robot slow down to avoid collision. However, many factors can affect the anti-collision sensors signal emitting and receiving, such as lighting, color of furniture, especially dust or scratches on surface of bumper. That's why the robots not only have sensors but also have second-protection from bumper. If sensors fail to "see" obstacles somehow, bumper will hit obstacles and turn around. So bumper hitting obstacles is not a quality issue, it would be common after using the robot for a while."

So be warned, they basically said the sensor is EXPECTED to stop functioning after "a while". After the sensors stop functioning, you will be left with a vacuum that hits everything at full speed and will only change direction after making contact with what's in front of it at, full speed. Be prepared to hear a loud bang every 20 seconds.

Interestingly, after they refused the warranty claim, I was also blocked on Amazon from leaving a review for the product. In my experience, very unscrupulous seller. My first one was a model M82, and the one with the serious quality fade issues is the N79s.

Not sure why I'm getting downvoted here. This was a 100+ thumbs up deal on the FP earlier this month for $10 more.

I also have one of these at home and love it. Works much better than the more expensive neato I have. Many positive amazon reviews seem to agree.

Not a smear campaign, just letting everyone know what to expect. What I posted is a verbatim excerpt from their warranty department.

I am more skeptical of the people who are posting positive reviews like, "I own this and it awesome, I run one, sometimes two and three times a day." Really? That's like 18 hours of the robot running and then recharging, in one 24 hr period? Ok, whatever

I've run mine twice in a day w/o any issue at all. It does seem to get hung up on my bar stools on occasion and the drop sensor freaks out. Aside from that mine works well. This was my first and only robotic vacuum. Wifey got it on a whim a few weeks ago. So far it is cleaning well. I just wish you could set up areas that are off limits w/ this one.
