@IndifferentDude lmao - did a quick search. There’s still 40 of them left in the US & territories, CA - 6, FL- 5 and NY -6, the rest scattered in five or six other states and territories. Great excuse to go to St. Thomas: they are having a great blue light special!
@IndifferentDude I remember reading a while ago that the most profitable Kmart (and likely the last one to survive) was in the Hamptons and they had a monopoly on that stretch of road as the only store.
Not sure what to compare it to but it does make noise. Not as bad as the regular vacuum but it is definitely not silent. That being said, I could easily hear the music on my wireless speakers in the kitchen while it was going.
“I use it for a small apartment and I have to say that the battery life is great but there are so many shitty things about it that I say run from it.”
“Our vacuum committed suicide: I wish that I could say that everything was going fine until Rosie, our vacuuming unit, hurled herself down the stairs, but I feel I must be truthful. In reality, Rosie missed large swaths of the rooms she had been assigned to, as well as seeming to obsess over areas she had cleaned several times already.”
“I had a Dee bot and loved it for 2 years until it kind of crapped out. Then we got this monstrosity. it had such good reviews and I had such high hopes for this stupid ass thing. Sometimes it cleans one spot over and over again like a meth monster whose high is a kite. Sometimes just looking at it makes me angry.”
“It’s high maintenance and I can’t imagine how many hours it’s going to take to do what I could do in 10 minutes. I think I’m going to have to declare this thing stupid.”
“Sucks as much as a little vacuum should suck… But it got tired of sucking and pretty much sucks.”
I have an iLife 4s *we call it “Little Horseshoe” as it looks like a horseshoe crab) and I absolutely love it.
It’s a dumb vacuum, as it runs into things to turn around. No mapping, but the battery is great, the customer service is good, and it does the job quite well for much less than a Roomba.
@aquastardreamer I can only speak on the 4s, but you want to clear all of that stuff.
It will get tangled up.
It was a pain when I first got it, but totally worth the job it does.
I have a long-haired cat and this thing is a must.
@aquastardreamer (I’m biased, this is my product) So I have been testing the V5S, the only difference is the mopping feature. I’ve used it in my bedroom, letting it go under the bed into the abyss of dust bunnies, dog toys and lost batteries. It actually worked it’s way around most of it and didn’t get stuck under the bed (which is frankly, shocking). But in my kitchen, I have some tarps tapping up some damage to my lower cabinets we’re getting fixed and it did get bunched up and stuck on those tarps. That was pretty much the only thing it got stuck on. That being said, my dog toys might be bigger than cat toys and I did get up the majority of items, just not the stuff under the bed. Overall, I was impressed for the price (I tested a refurb as well).
Okay I’m in. This is a birthday gift for my Mother who has Amazon Echo everything but oddly doesn’t have an Roomba yet. I think she is afraid it will scare the cats. For this price it’s worth finding out.
Mine arrived YESTERDAY! Yes, yesterday, as in 3 days after the sale closed!! I found it on my porch when I went out early this AM to see how much rain had fallen. After being puzzled by the fact I had received a package when none were due, my next thought was someone at Pitney Bowles methed up.
Then I noticed it came FedEx. (And a full week before the estimated arrival window start date…)
Item looks brand new.
Came well packaged
Read the quick start guide, turned it on, and set it on the charger. It was ready in a couple of hours.
Ran it after lunch to check it out. My kitchen/dining room is one step up from the living room and about 30’x24’ of tile flooring. On that space is a wooden trestle table, 6 chairs, 3 bar stools, and a 4’x3’ island. SWMBO has been out of town this week, and I have been doing a bunch of canning and work in the kitchen, and since the backyard is accessed off the french doors in the dining room and it’s been rainy, I had managed to track in a bit of loose grass clippings and sand etc. that stayed stuck to my shoes/feet even after trying to wipe them off on the exterior rug.
Overall this thing did an excellent job. It picked up all the little detritus left around the 2 rooms, didn’t get totally stuck under the chairs or bar stools, and even got back to the dock on it’s own from the opposite side of the dining room table.
It isn’t silent by any stretch, but not unacceptably noisy either. I can still listen to Pandora on the wireless speakers placed in a couple of spots in the 2 rooms.
It is not a ‘smart’ robot. It does not map and remember your layout. It is basically a “bump-n-go” setup, but it does have some IR sensors evidently (as mentioned in the sale specs), as it would often slow down as it approached a wall without actually bumping into it.
Cliff/stair sensors worked efficiently and it never dove off the step into the living room space.
Overall, a good product so far.
It’s back on the charger (about 2/3 charged in a couple of hours) and will be unleashed in the bedroom when it is ready to go. There it will have access to my master bath as well and will have to go over a wooden transition from the pergo style flooring to tile. There is also a very thin rug we bought in Turkey years ago that it will have to climb on and off of several times I’m sure. It will also have to navigate the legs on the vanity since it is up off the ground. I’ll re-post how that adventure goes later. But for now,
to @mandirose for picking an excellent meh product!
TL:DR $80 well invested
@chienfou I try to set achievable expectations when I chime in about a product I’m the buyer of but I’ll be honest that we were really impressed with this item (even the packaging was impressive for a refurbished item, as you mentioned) We’re so glad to hear you like it so far as much as we did! Thanks for the shout out, you made my day!
@jquebby I’m really sorry to hear that your instructions booklet was missing. Please click here for an electronic copy. If you would like a hard copy, please write in to our customer service team and I’ll get with the vendor and see what we can do!
That window has closed… for now. Keep an eye out for future repeats of this product sale if they didn’t sell out, as well as being in the odd mehrathon if they only have a few left.
Or, for only $20 more you can visit the sister site and get it there.
