Neato D7 Review – Robotic Vacuum
Neato D7 is one of the better robotic vacuum models released in 2018.
Best part is WiFi connectivity — You’re able to control it on your mobile phone using their Mobile App.
Another cool part is that the D7 thoroughly maps your home.
When you tell it to start a vacuum session it does a superb job of picking up floor particles in a linear travel path. Also reduces the possibility of allergic triggers (pet hair for example), improves air quality, and requires no work on your part.
Neato Robotics Vacuum Cleaner has a variety of features that allow it access to a lot of functions. Still, all of them are focused on cleaning every inch of your home.

Neato D7 Review Performance
As one of the most powerful robotic cleaners in the industry, the Neato Robotics Vacuum Cleaner, on paper, certainly doesn’t fail to impress — for one, the smart vacuum cleaner has a mapping and navigation technology called LaserSmart.
The technology is used to scan the immediate surrounding whilst also committing it to memory for increased work output.
One advantage of this is that the device plans a series of directions, or might we say paths, that it takes in cleaning your home. All of the paths are rapidly swept through, with no reduction in work quality.
Furthermore, the cleaner uses its shape in tandem with different modes and brushes to clean the various surfaces and tight spots it comes across — this includes wooden surfaces, rugs, corners, and small spaces.

If you feel like restricting its movement, you can likewise tell it to steer clear of any room of your choice. You can do it with barriers (like Roomba 980) or through the mobile app. It’s super simple which is why it has gotten mostly positive reviews online.
Example: the D7 vacuumed earlier in the morning, but your dog came in from outside and rolled on the living room floor. You don’t want vacuum the entire house – just the living room. No problem! Through your mobile app you can tell the Neato D7 to vacuum only the living room!
Finally, after an intensive session of work, the robotic vacuum cleaner goes back to its charging port, plugs itself in till it’s full, and resumes its work. (very similar to Roomba in this manner)

The downside of the Neato D7 is its price. It’s a lot more than earlier additions, but if you can afford the (very high!) price tag I think really love it!
