you know, I dont know if I would trust one of those. They are so small, how the do they suction all the dirt, dust, litter, cat hair, etc...and keep the house clean? Where does all that go? i think it just recirculates.

I've had one for a few years now. I love it. I used to let it run around the house ever few days, but you still need to pull out the big vacuum every now and then.

You have to 'baby-proof' your house cuz it can get stuck on things.. cables, cords, frilly-edged rugs.

The dust pan is pretty small, so unless you use the a regular vacuum regularly as well, it will fill up before it's done. You may have to stop it and empty several times.

I love to turn it on and leave the house and come back to the carpet looking freshly vacuumed

The dog doesn't care for it much. It makes some noise, not as bad as a regular vacuum, but you can probably still watch TV while it zooms around.

LOL, it has a filter and dustpan. it detaches from the unit and you just empty it in the trash can.

yeah, my dog does the same thing. dog hair and dirt. It's cool because it can detect dirt, or extra dirty spots and this little blue light turns on and it will do a circular pattern over that area, then go back to it's business.

I used to grab dirt from my plants and throw it on the floor to watch it find it and do the business.
