CLEAN­ING PROW­ESS Av­er­age. It left cof­fee pow­der be­hind; I had to go over the spot sev­eral times in man­ual mode to get it com­pletely clean. It’s more thor­ough in its in­ten­sive or cor­ner-clean­ing modes than reg­u­lar mode. The brushes scat­tered the crumbs.

SEN­SI­TIV­ITY TO OB­STA­CLES It knocked into stor­age boxes and fur­ni­ture, but with a soft front bumper, no dam­age was done. It’s most prone to get­ting stuck be­tween chair legs.

EASE OF USE The re­mote con­trol is clearly la­belled but the ma­chine’s screen doesn’t in­di­cate se­lected modes. It spouts mes­sages like “Check the brush, please”. It doesn’t have a pre-set daily clean­ing func­tion, only a time de­lay (two to 12 hours). It’s one of two ma­chines that needs a di­rect cable con­nec­tion to charge. The pail­like dust bin is easy to re­move and empty, but is flimsy. NOISE Mod­er­ately noisy.

VERDICT A value-for-money, no-frills buy that comes with use­ful ex­tras.
