Who should buy Neato Botvac D7 Connected

  • If you are willing to pay for a robot vacuum that has high-end features, and provides quality performance, at a slightly more expensive price, this product will suit you. This robot vacuum is for those who have a lot of edges or corners in their house, because of its famed D-shaped design, which is made to reach the corners that most round robot vacuums can’t. Because of its smart mapping system (LiDAR), and long battery life, it is suitable for wide spaces since it can navigate intelligently and accurately. This is also for those who have a lot of doorway thresholds, and slightly thicker carpets, or rugs because this product has a taller wheel clearance than other robot vacuums, which helps it to easily go over and not get stuck. This product is also fit for users who look for speed in terms of cleaning, because this product is fast in its cleaning ability, and gets the work done quicker than most robot vacuums.

Who should NOT buy Neato Botvac D7 Connected

  • You should note that this product is 3.9 inches high. Moreover, it has a raised disc on top that covers the robot vacuum’s laser, which is why if you have couches (or other furniture that have smaller clearance than the product), expect that this robot vacuum will not go under them, and most probably will get stuck frequently unlike low profile robot vacuums. If you prefer to have a robot vacuum that works quietly, this product will most likely disappoint you because it is slightly loud when cleaning, and makes a lot of indicator sounds.

Verdict

This is our verdict of the Neato Botvac D7 Connected based on several hours of research of reviews from both experts and users.
Updated 08-02-2021

Neato Botvac D7 Connected has a unique shape that enables the product to reach corners that most round robot vacuums can’t. Because of this shape, it enables the product to have space for a longer brush bar that provides larger coverage of suctioning and cleaning.

Because of its LIDAR mapping, it provides an accurate map, and efficient cleaning without leaving uncleaned spaces. The app also provides "no-go" zones, which are helpful to control the spaces you do and do not want the robot vacuum to go.

This product also provides a lot of third-party integration; it is compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple Watch, and IFTTT apps, so it enables you to automatically connect apps or other services. For instance, you can set it so that if you turn on the television, then the robot vacuum automatically starts.

The slightly large wheels of this product enable it to go over high rugs or carpets, and even slightly high doorway thresholds with ease. However, it will likely get stuck trying to go under furniture that has low clearance, such as the couch or bed. Additionally, if it gets stuck, it gives up easily.

This Botvac D7 offers a lot of impressive features, and outstanding performance. However, as seen in the Amazon reviews, users have complained about issues with their unit, and the app, because it has a lot of defects and bugs. In summary, the D7 works well at first, but after a few weeks it will start erroring, get stuck often, and show a lot of defects in the app. Then, they would contact customer service and get help, and as a result, most of them end up receiving another D7 unit that works perfectly well (without any flaws and errors), or the company will fix their previous unit.
