Takeaway: Few features, doesn't clean room perimeter, dust bin is a chore to empty, hard floors only.

You'll receive the robot vacuum unit, a power adapter for charging, an extra rotary brush, and the instruction manual. The vacuum is has a plastic housing and measures 11" in diameter and 2.5" tall. It has a handle on top, a control button and an LED display. Along the front are sensors so the vacuum can avoid bumping into walls and objects. On the bottom you have the rotating sweeper brush, main roller brush, and dust bin. There are no impact bumpers or fall sensors so this vacuum cannot be used around descending stairs or steps as it will roll ovver and fall off them. The dust bin on this unit is not removable, so use care when pressing the button on the back to open it as the contents must be poured out by brushing or wiping it out.

To turn the unit on, press the red button next to the power port after charging. The LED display will show you the amount of time the vacuum is set to run and counts down during operation. To change the amount of time, press and hold the plus or minus keys to select 1 to 99 minutes. To start/stop the vacuum, press the play button. The vacuum is somewhat noisy as it runs and moves in a random pattern, though it never maps out or learns the layout of the room. The rotary sweeper can grab dust and hair a few inches away from the unit, but tends to keep wide berth from walls and objects, about 4 inches. Due to this, it leaves a lot of dirt and debris around the perimeter of the room that it cannot reach. This is a bit disappointing as that means you'll have to manually sweep out the edges of the room before or after running the vacuum.

For areas it's able to go over, it does an okay job picking up hair and dust, but larger particles like bits of paper tend to get left behind. Without perimeter cleaning, the vacuum only reduces the amount of effort it takes to vacuum with a traditional vacuum by a relatively small margin. After the timer runs out the vacuum shuts itself off, but since there's no charging dock to return to, you'll have to hunt for where the vacuum ended up on your own. You also have to plug it in after every 2 or so hours of cumulative run time and there's no way to set a daily schedule for automatic startup and cleaning. This vacuum does not work on carpet or rugs as it will get stuck. As a basic vacuum, it takes a little bit of the work out of cleaning, but not enough of it to make it a fully automated solution. It works best in a small room with few obstacles and hardwood/tile/cement floors. But you'll still have to clean around the perimeter with a broom or vacuum and clear our the dust bin after it's run. It's almost more trouble to use this robot vacuum than just vacuuming the whole area with a traditional vacuum. If you really don't have the time to clean your floors often and don't mind that the job is only really about 80% complete when it's done running, it's better than nothing.
