Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

EverydayRobots has published a hands-on review of the Black and Decker Zoombot robotic vacuum cleaner. (Buy it at Amazon for $103.47)

"But how well does it clean? Not very well. If you’ve used a Roomba, you will be disappointed.
If you’re new to robotic vacs, you’ll probably still be disappointed because it leaves dirt behind on hard floors and doesn’t impart that just-vacuumed look to low and medium pile carpets. When I placed my hand over the inlet, I felt little suction (you can keep the vacuum running upside down to test suction by pressing the wheel with the sensor, as mentioned). I sprinkled some dry potting soil on a Pergo hard floor and it picked up some but not all of the dirt. On close inspection, we could find cat hairs on the surface of our low-to-medium pile carpet. Robotic or not, a vacuum should do a better job removing these kinds of modest messes."
