Editor's Notes & Price Research

This price matches (and is even $1 less) than the Front Page Deal we had for it in July.

My 5-year old Neato XV12 is finally dead, so I've been looking at what's available these days. I saw the D3 at Walmart for $199. A 3-year warranty is $22 extra, and it came with free next-day shipping for me.

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Neato-.../472433178

From what I've read, it's essentially the same as the D5 but with a lower-end battery and brush (both of which can be upgraded), and no side brush.

This model has No Go Lines

OP deal is solid. Will it go back to $99 who knows, for most just ends up being a worthless Brickseek hunt.

For best results, when you get the robot, do not use the battery, sell it on eBay and buy the real battery. Another strategy is to make sure to make a battery claim within the 6 month battery warranty, if needed. The battery on this model has a tendency to die a couple of days after the warranty expires. Neato battery warranty starts on the date of sale, not when you receive the robot.

The hair in the brush can be frustrating to some. I prefer to buy the original blade brush for hard surfaces. I rarely have to clean the brush.

Do not let any water get on the filter. Cut a L shape flap in the lower right corner to vacuum out what will end up under the pre filter. Clean the bin with a paper towel when you clean the filter. With proper maintenance, the original filter will last for the lifetime of the Robot.

Buy the 3 year Walmart warranty. If you have a credit card warranty, still buy the Walmart warranty. This unit can become an expensive doorstop.

This model does not come with the side-brush, which even though it looks worthless actually works on hard surfaces and you will miss it.

I have this one and got it for this price when it was on the same deal at Target months ago. Its been a good vac. People will complain about battery but that's not really an issue. It recharges and picks up right where it left off. We have 2 dogs and it does a great job picking up the hair. Its been in use every week since I got it and its worked well. Just be conscious about what room you store it in. If you move the furniture in that room around at all, it will fail to recognize its map when it starts and will need to remap the home. No huge deal as it cleans while it does it. Just an FYI for your planning.

Still seems slick to me, in for one, since it's currently $400 @ Amazon: https://amzn.to/33H9GEP

Walmart has a 90 day return policy. If a better model hits this price, then it's easy to return the D3.

They work really good. They are magnetic strips that you place on the ground. I'm not sure about the D3, but my D7 allows me to set the boundaries from the app - then you don't need markers after the first run.

Not needed? Without the go lines it would operate like a drunk Roomba, lol just kidding. I personally like having them my D5 uses them and they work really well to keep it away from (or around) areas not needed.

I have the D4 and I love it. Suction is great. No-go lines work very well. Robot sensing with radar is top notch. At this price, you will not be disappointed.

Bought this and had no luck getting it to complete its first full run in my intricate downstairs. It'd inevitably run out of battery. I also had a problem where it would, depending on daylight, "see" stuff it hadn't seen before, like a dark stairwell. It'd then report a "new map" was established. I ended up returning it and buying new batteries for my old dumb Neato.

I also had to do my trick where you put it on a long extension outside to force my phone to default to 2.4GHz to set it up, since my mesh router doesn't let you turn off the 5GHz.
