You missed the boat man, a .22LR would have provided some great dinners.

My Ride: Yukon, E92 M3
The D80 got here yesterday and after letting it charge for a few hours I gave it a test run. The dogs, while initially curious, were sufficiently nonplussed after about 15 minutes, so much so that they laid around and watched it do its thing. It hit 3 rooms and half of the living room before having to make its way back home and was full of dirt and hair when I emptied it. I was pretty surprised at how much dirt there was, the hair not so much. Needless to say I was impressed with what it was able to pick up, especially considering it didn't hit the rug where the dogs lay. I was blown away at how easily it made its way back to the base when it was done, and some reading lead me to the fact that it's running Neato's proprietary SLAM algorithm. I had to implement a really shitty SLAM on a cheap robot in grad school and it's no easy task. Their wall following scheme is as good as what I saw on my parents' Roomba 980, too. i'm glad you guys talked me into this instead of the Roomba I posted about.

Once you see how much it continues to pick up, you'll wonder how your nasty ass ever lived without one.

I used to have a Roomba from a previous generation, but I didn't like it. The quality of the cleaning did not impress me. All the same, it is better to buy a vertical vacuum cleaner. That's exactly what I did. I bought Shark Rocket DeluxePro and am now very pleased with the result. Although I need to vacuum the whole house myself, Iím sure that I will collect all the garbage and dust. I decided to buy such a vacuum cleaner when I looked at it at https://cleanersexpert.com/best-vacu...rdwood-floors/. There I saw on a living example the abilities of this vacuum cleaner.

Mrs. SPDSKTR is on a Shark Apex kick. It has brushes, soft rollers, can be detached and used like a portable, etc. From what we've read, it's a close rival to a Dyson, but it is corded, so...

I have use Roomba and irobot vacuum cleaner already. They are good enough I dont' have any complaint against them. Right Now I have bought a new one for my new house Dyson Vacuum Cleaner. I have been using this one over 3 months. No issue at all. Happy to use this one.
