The top three automatic vacuum cleaners in the market today are reviewed extensively here. If you are like me, you will love anything automatic. And when that automatic equipment has, in built, almost human intelligence, all the better. There is nothing like having a robotic vacuum cleaner do all the floor vacuum for you. It relieves you of some of the pain you go through using your normal vacuum cleaner. These robot automatic vacuum cleaners are set and leave. Some even have scheduling feature. Whereby , you set it and it will do it’s thing at the time you set it to. And if you are thinking about how it will maintain battery charge, don’t worry. Some have the ability to go back to a charging station when the battery is low and recharge itself. Fantastic, isn’t it ?

Now let’s look at what differentiates these auto vacuum cleaners. One of the main difference
between the iRobot Roomba 770 and the Neato xv-21/iRobot Romba 630 is that the 770 has an
infrared remote control. An infrared remote control can come in handy when the machine gets
stuck somewhere in the house.
Also you cannot schedule the 630 to clean while you are away. But the 770 and Neato can be
schedule to clean for a week.
Another notable difference is the kind of filters they use. The iRobot Romba 770 uses the HEPA
filter, the iRobot Romba 630 uses an aerovac filter and the Neato uses the Neato robotic pet and
allergy filter. In terms of quality and durability the HEPA filter beats all others.
Again, the iRobot Romba 770 can auto clean a very dirty area with it ‘s persistent pass cleaning
pattern. The 630 doesn’t have this, while the Neato XV-21 scans the room and gives it a good
back and forth clean.
With the iRobot Romba 770 , you can create what is called virtual wall. That is no go areas. 2
virtual walls actually. There are times you don’t want your automatic vacuum cleaner running into
places you don’t want it to. The 630 romba can only create 1 virtual wall while the Neato has no

The iRobot Romba 770 and 630 come with what they call the idapt responsive cleaning
technology. iAdapt is iRobot’s advanced system of software and sensors that allows Roomba to
clean more of your room, more thoroughly. It ensures Roomba vacuums every section of your
room multiple times, cleaning areas you can’t easily reach including under furniture, around
everyday obstacles, and along walls. It even avoids stairs and drop-offs, navigates past soft
barriers such as couch skirts, recognizes cords and carpet fringe, and self-adjusts to clean
hardwood, carpet, and linoleum.
The Neato XV-21 comes with it’s own RPS technology, the robot uses its laser to see its
surroundings and create accurate maps of areas to be cleaned – including furniture, objects and
doorways. The robot constantly updates its map of the room, so if a new object is added into the
room during a cleaning run, the robot will add it to the map.
