Experience with the Botvac D6 Connected

Neato has not developed a new vacuum robotic cleaner for several years. Now comes with the Botvac D6 a highlight on the market.

Not suitable for...

Does the robot vacuum still work in the dark?

Many robot vacuums have problems navigating on dark floors or generally in the dark. The sensors will not work as well then. Neato uses a different technique for this. A laser that rotates maps the room and creates a virtual map of it. That’s how the Botvac D6 Connected finds its way in the dark. The navigation of the device is very good. One recognizes immediately, that the suction robot knows what he does. When the battery is empty, it charges itself independently and begins to vacuum where it last stopped. Not many vacuum robots can do that. Only the very expensive devices from iRobot such as the Roomba 981

Such a form is rarely seen in a robot vacuum

Compared to other vacuum robots such as the new Ecovacs devices that are mostly round, the Neato Botvac D6 Connected looks a bit strange. But this form also has an advantage. Because the robot is square on one side, it gets into the corners very well. This does not work so well with the round devices.

NO-GO-LINE ... what's that supposed to be?

Imagine that you want to vacuum the apartment but a part of it, the robot can not vacuum, because there are still parts lying around. Then the NO-GO-LINE is good. You can then simply draw a line on the virtual map on the phone. As a result, the Botvac D6 Connected knows that he can not drive in there. This is comparable to the virtual wall of iRobot as the Roomba e5 possesses. But you have to put down a part. So the solution from Neato is a lot more comfortable.

Neato Botvac D6 Connected ... and there's more

Still absolutely a novelty on the market is the charging function of the Neato Botvac D6 Connected. Suppose he still has a few square feet to clean … but the battery is no longer enough. As a result, he drives back and loads up. The great thing about it is that he only charges himself until he has enough energy for the rest of the area. Simply great.

How good is the suction power ...

The suction power is very good. There’s nothing to denounce about that. Coarse dirt or larger crumbs vacuum away the robotvacuum with ease.

Which botvac is best for me?

The Botvac D6 has a built-in ultra-performance filter in contrast to the Botvac D4. In addition, the vacuum robot can map several floors. The battery lasts for almost an hour longer. We do not find that relevant since the devices have a very smart charging function. In addition, the D6 has a spiral combi brush. However, in our test we could not find any improved suction power or cleaning by the brush. If you have multiple floors and have a lot of animals, the D6 is the device for you. Otherwise, the D4 goes …. because it saves about 200 euros. The Botvac D7 is the same as the D6, but has a zone cleaning feature. That means that you can say the suction robot via app … “You clean every morning the zone under the kitchen table” because there are many crumbs on the ground. The entrance area would also be suitable for this. If you want to have this nice feature, you have to put on another 150 Euros.

Conclusion to the Neato Botvac D6 Connected:

Many new unique features make the robotic vacuum cleaner one of the best devices currently available on the market. The charging function, NO-GO-LINE and the Virtual Map are just great and work perfectly. Thanks to laser technology, he has no problems navigating even in the dark. It’s quite expensive at 700 euros … but compared to an iRobot that can be almost the same, it’s still pretty cheap. The vacuum robot can do it all. Who has the wherewithal can strike confidently. A tip from us. Also look at Ebay and compare the price. They also have new devices and you can save a lot of money.

This robot is too expensive for them … then have a look at the vacuum robots up to 300 Euro. These tests for the devices are listed below.
