CLEAN­ING PROW­ESS Av­er­age. It picked up less cof­fee pow­der than the LG, Neato and Irobot ma­chines. It comes with two side brushes but th­ese were hit-and-miss – they swept some crumbs into its path and brushed oth­ers aside.

SEN­SI­TIV­ITY TO OB­STA­CLES It avoided walls well but hit low fur­ni­ture lightly.

EASE OF USE The re­mote con­trol and the LED touch screen were in­tu­itive – it was the only ma­chine that I could use straight out of the box, with­out hav­ing to re­fer to its man­ual. But there were mi­nor in­con­ve­niences like hav­ing to plug the cable di­rectly into the vac­uum cleaner to charge it and a less con­ve­nient slide-out dust bin. NOISE The sec­ond-qui­etest.

VERDICT A rel­a­tively muted and fast-charg­ing ro­bot that is easy to op­er­ate. *All the vac­uum clean­ers come with bound­ary mark­ers – mag­netic strips or small light­house-shaped tools to con­fine them to an area.
