There's no annoying voice. The bin is huge, 700ml. See attached picture. We have two shepherds which shed constantly and the Neato actually filled the bin. Instead of half filling and leaving hair everywhere. Plus none of the hair wrapper around the roller! First vac I've seen achieve this.
The app is also actually easy to connect - supporting modern WiFi networks. The mapping and nav worked just fine actually doing a great job of not moving objects.
Tip: Can confirm for Aus just need a Female IEC-C5 Power Cable (on some Dell laptops, plugs into the brick) and no dramas. Supports Aus voltage (240v).
Update: Now in October and it's still going strong! Our two Shepherds are keeping it busy but we've found the Neato up to the job. Very rarely it might get lost, but it's so rare it's not worth considering. Replacement parts (filters and rollers) aren't cheap if you were to follow the guidelines - but that's the only issue we've had.

Unit arrives in the mail while I'm away at work, wife puts it to work, used it 3 times and went on holiday for 2 wks, there were learning's for sure, never connected to wifi but overall she loved it and results were positive. Got home from holiday and asked to see it do it's thing, went to start, no charge and no go even though is was docked on the charger while we were away. Reviewed troubleshooting in the manual, reread the manual, looked it up charging issues on Google and tried a few basic non-invasive tests to no avail. Paid $1000.00 for the D7 and have owned it 1 month, it has worked 3 times and now it doesn't work, went on line and registered it with Neato, S/N, personal details, proof of purchase etc and sent an e-mail to Technical Support at Neato explaining the problem. Waited 4 days and no reply, called them up, no record of the email being sent, went through a series of tests with Tech Support, reset the battery (had to remove and reinstall), tested the charger, left it 5 hrs on charge as instructed, still no charge, sent another e-mail reporting no joy, again no response. Called again today, new Tech Support person to which I had to explain the whole story again and he wants me to send an e-mail with all personal details, proof of purchase, photo of unit ID plate etc, asked why I have to do that as it was all entered when I registered the unit with the company, he told me he has no access to that information, this is getting old at this point.
Was told soon as I sent the email something would be done to resolve the issue, either a new battery or new unit, jury is out on this purchase, think the equipment is probably ok but systems in the company are ineffective and not aligned. If I don't get a call tomorrow with a very clear solution to the issues I am sending it back and expect a full refund.
I am not going through the amount of work I undertook with the first Neato. I've bought another Roomba S9 and am going to take my 2 Neato D7's to an electronics recycling place. I guess all of the spare parts I have on hand (filters, brushes) will just go into the trash. WHAT A WASTE...
*** end of August update **
After less than 2 years of once/week use, my Neato D7 stopped working after a firmware and iOS app update. I own two of these D7's, and this one, the older of the two, stopped "talking" to my iOS app. Because Neato does not offer any sort of web interface, I have no idea if the problem is with the app, the firmware change, or both. Oddly, my newer Neato is still working fine, so my guess is the firmware. Problem is, the Neato support staff seems utterly uninterested in having me do anything other than re-configuring my network, which isn't addressing the problem.
Neato FINALLY sent me an RMA and I shipped my D(efective)7 back to them for repair or replacement. Oddly, the very day it arrived, they shipped a D7 back to me. Wow, perhaps that means it is a new or refurbished robot? After arrival, I tried to connect it to my network. Guess what? IT DIDN'T WORK. It also came back with a fine mesh screen instead of a filter in the dustbin. Odd -- I sent it in with a filter in place. As part of trying to connect the supposedly repaired D7, I noticed that they MAC Address is the same, indicating that it is the same exact D(efective)7 that I shipped back to them. I thought that perhaps they had reflashed the ROM or something. Sadly, from all appearances, Neato did NOTHING to fix the beast. They simply slapped a new label on it the same day it arrived and shipped it back. Or, if they did anything in the few hours it was in their hands, it did nothing to solve the problem. Wow -- that has to be the WORST RMA service I've ever had the displeasure to experience.
You have been warned...
TLDR: My D7 stopped responding to the iOS app. Following the directions of two different Neato Support techs (Gareth and Luke), I deleted the D7 from the app and have since wasted hours and hours, both on my own and following their directions, to try to get it working again. Not only were they unable to help me do so, they have stopped responding to queries, are not escalating this to a higher-level tech, and have generally left me with an $800 wall ornament.
The details: The first thing Neato support (Gareth, on March 30) had me do was delete the entry in the iOS app for the problematic robot. Since then, the iOS app has repeatedly refused to re-add the robot to my account and the app. It always fails after connecting to the Internet. After Gareth stopped answering emails, I tried adding the D7 to my account using their website (you cannot manage things from there, simply add the robot by serial number). I managed to get the D7 running on its previously set schedule, but it still would not allow me to manage it with the iOS app.
Sadly, Luke convinced me that I needed to delete the manually entered D7 website entry, reset the robot and all would be well. I capitulated, and, sadly, NOTHING WORKS now. On April 21, in a response 10 days after my last email to Luke asking for a level 2 or 3 tech to help me, I received an email from Eric, from the Neato tech support & escalations team. Eric said that they don't really know why I (and many others) are unable to connect our robots. He mentioned that we could always try a Factory Reset (though has never responded to my requests to tell me HOW to do that), and asked for more information on my router and Wi-Fi configuraiton. Isent him that information along with updates based on further debugging, but have NEVER heard back. Are you detecting a pattern? I emailed yet again on May 11, but still no word from Eric and Neato.
I am far from technically naive, and I configured my firewall to report on all outbound connections from the failed D7. I can see it go to the DNS server to find the Neato servers. I see it connect to servers in AWS. Then, while waiting for a reply, it times out. About 60 seconds after the timeout, a bunch of data comes from the servers, then it all disconnects. Even odder, the Neato D7 remembers my Wi-Fi SSIDs and passwords (!!) when it isn't connected to the Internet. This means the D7 is saving this information in its internal memory. Wow, talk about a security hole!! I tried pulling out the battery and leaving it out for 2 days, hoping that would act as the Factory Reset Eric mentioned, but refused to describe to me. No joy. Not only does the D7 behave the same as before, it also still remembers my SSID and password pair. SO BE WARNED: do not give away your Neato D7 to someone until or unless you can find out from Neato how to clear your Wi-Fi information out of its memory (or you are willing to change your Wi-Fi password). Convenience is nice, but not when it can so thoroughly compromise your network security while offering you no way to remove the data.
I've also noticed that the D7 I have that is working regularly ignores the DNS server information on my network and just calls the Google DNS system (184.108.40.206). Were it not for all the time I speng with Gareth and Luke reconfiguring my network to switch DNS servers, this bit of hardcoding would almost be funny. Instead, it is yet another instance of Neato's questionable programming practices.
C'Mon Neato -- work with me to FIX THIS. Less than two years of weekly use hasn't broken this robot. It seems nearly certain that your software changes did that. I will work with you if you can connect me with someone who can actually debug the problem vs. take me through the same, rote change (reboot Neato and iPhone, change DNS to Google, try again, perhaps turn off 5G -- despite both robots normally connecting to that... wow, that didn't work after 5 tries... try again...). Sigh.
Here is the original review, which was titled: Works really well, once you figure it out
The D7 is quite agile when compared to the Roomba; I've watched the D7 lift its front end up to climb from tile to carpet, which is a nice trick. It doesn't always work (e.g. a shag throw rug in one bathroom bunches up when the D7 tries to climb onto it), but it often does. I'm also happy with its cleaning; picks up dust, dirt, pet hair... pretty much everything on my tile and Berber-carpeted floors. I really like its ability to realize it is low on power, head back to the base, recharge and start cleaning where it left off! It is able to clean my entire top floor (it says almost 900 square feet covered) with no recharge or only 1 recharge.
The mapping and no-go lines are killer features, especially when compared to iRobot wanting you to buy IR Beacons (or virtual walls... $60/pop for the 700-series); the beacons are also range limited (6 - 10 feet), and if you don't notice the batteries are running low (I run my Roomba when I am out of the house), the Roomba happily finds its way past the beacon and goes where you don't want it.
Now not everything is perfect with the D7, else I would've given it 5-stars. The most glaring hole is the poor documentation. The information in the package and iOS app is minimal, and there are (or were not, when I checked) a detailed Wiki, FAQ or knowledge base. It is their newest unit, but still, things like:
- Will the no-go lines be respected when running on a schedule (yes!)?
- How do you restart the D7 once it gets stuck and do so in a way that it continues cleaning vs. return to base (move it less than 2-feet, which is documented, then press once on the start button, which wasn't)?
- Do you need to do a special mapping run or will the D7 just map as it does its initial cleanings (it will map without a mapping run, but you won't be able to set no-go lines until/unless you first do a mapping run)?
- If you use the magnets to block the D7 from a room (in this case, a walk-in closet, where I did not want it rummaging through my shoes or against hanging items close to the floor), will the D7 enter that room after the mapping run when the magnets are removed (Yes! Though support told me no...)?
I also had some initial problems getting the D7 to make its initial map, but after 2 or 3 false starts (getting stuck then returning to base when I tried to free/restart it), I had my map. Then I laid down no-go lines under my desks, where I have computer cables strung. in a corner where I keep a fan plugged in, to keep it to the middle of my closet... and it WORKS GREAT! It was the process of getting there that was frustrating at times.
I do have a gripe with the filter used in the D7. The filter itself is surrounded by fine mesh. Seems like a good idea, until you find that dust gets stuck behind the mesh and cannot be cleaned out (not with a brush, vacuum or tweezers). Poor design choice, unless your goal is to sell more filters...
I've also had problems where I received different answers from different support people; usually one of them was right, but it took trial and error to figure that out.
All in all, I am happy with my D7 and would never consider getting another Roomba (not throwing the old one away, but I know where I will turn when it is time to replace it). I hope that Neato irons out the kinks/holes in their documentation. A better filter design would be nice too :)
So I got a deebot to use in alternance with the XV21 so it can clean close to the walls with the side brushes. The thing doesn't avoid anything. It rams into everything in its path but is somewhat quiet. Doesn't do well with cat litter. The brushes spin so fast it scatters it. So while I still had intact baseboards I bought the D7.
Just like my XV21, it doesn't ram everything in it's path. It's a tad noisy but hey, it's a vacuum!
The app works great. Love the fact that you can set it to clean only part of the house (like going around the litter box every day) and it does great at sucking up the scattered litter (eco or turbo mode,doesn't matter, it's getting in the bin). Cat hair aren't a problem.
With the XV21 I had to empty the bin every 2 runs because of all the cat hairs but with the D7, once every 3-4 runs.
Doesn't clog as easily as the XV21 as the hole in the bin is a tad bigger.
Doesn't require any magnetic strip but will still avoid them.
The entire setup was pretty easy.
Had to run the floor plan thing twice because the first time it didn't do the entire house but as been flawless since.
I've used this robot for about 6 weeks, which is just outside of the return window. The vacuum itself sucks well, but every other feature is flawed, buggy, and unreliable. Neato support is poor overall. They have manpower, which is good, so your incidents are responded to, but nothing is ever fixed.
My robot has now gone from bad to not working at all. My repair request is currently being "reviewed for approval" since Neato will not send you a replacement for a brand new, very expensive robot that doesn't work. Hopefully I get approved and I can then go buy a box to ship this back to them, at which point they will try and repair it. No timeline on how long it will be gone or if I'll ever get it back. Complete waste of money and I hope to never do business with them again.
Got a replacement robot today and attempted to create the floor plan. This vacuum can't even get to 50% of a floor plan before it loses its mind. See attached photo and video of two separate occasions where it got stuck. It doesn't even try to reverse or get free, it just runs into things and spins its wheels. Either my second unit is DOA or the product is still immature and suffering from lack of quality control. Or both.
Had to send in my latest unit for repairs again. I was expecting another new unit as I've received in the past, so I could once more roll the dice on maybe getting a reliable vacuum. Opened the return package today and it is my same robot, supposedly repaired. I charged up the battery and let it loose. Two minutes in it shows the same behavior that caused the return in the first place. Not only did they just ship back my unusable robot but didn't even bother to do anything to it. The innards are dusty, just like they were when I sent it off, so clearly nothing has been done. I am still flabbergasted at this experience and yet after spending so much money I have no recourse.
All they would have to do is turn on the vacuum and let it run for a few minutes to see that it is defective. Instead they have now wasted more of my time and effort as I continually struggle to get at least some value from this underachiever.
My third full replacement has now failed. In 9 months I've had 3 new units, plus a "repaired" unit and they have all failed. They will work for a few weeks and then trouble starts and progresses until the unit just loses its mind. What a complete waste of time, money, and effort this has been. Such a miserable hunk of junk and just a miserable company to work with. I'll probably try and get this one replaced again as this will be my last chance before the warranty expires. I should have done a better job of researching product quality and not just feature set. A cool feature is worthless when the vacuum can't vacuum.
I love the zone feature, it takes care of my multiple areas.
The vacuum is run every day. On some days it has trouble going around the dog crate and on others it keeps banging into it for 10 or 15 minutes. Once it bangs into something at one location it should never go back to the location to try and pass. When mapping the floor it had absolutely no problem with the crate and the dog rugs. On some days the dog rugs are absolutely no problem and other days it just won’t get back onto the floor. It thinks it is a big drop like stairs.
There are no go lines which can be used to alleviate these problems but that shouldn’t be a problem in the first place. I also have four-legged barstools which it sometimes drags and sometimes it doesn’t. Sure I could try putting a no line around them but have you tried living in a house with other people as well and getting them to leave or put stuff in the correct place?
I love the vacuum but come on for this price it should do everything short of making and delivering coffee:)
