I think things have improved since November 2015

Yep, they "improve it" - adding power selection feature through app, so it work a little longer on single battery charge but with less suction, just like Samsung Powerbot on "silent" (weak) mode or Roomba with disabled (weak) carpet boost. That's one real "improvement".

December 2016 on display in U.S. Best Buy stores. Until seen in person you do not sense how tiny it is, like an overgrown coffee mug. Can't find the brew button.

I took advantage of the mixed initial reaction and ordered an ever-so-slightly-used-then-returned 360 Eye at a bit of a discount, and I have to say so far (about a week) I love it. Really impressed, and very happy with my choice.

I'll write up some more details on what the product does well and what its weaknesses are, but in the meantime I did want to share an illuminating anecdote: I told a friend of mine that I had ordered a robot vacuum, and I said it was a Dyson, and her immediate response was, "Well then it's of course going to be awesome!" She is a teacher with little to no technical expertise, and knows very little about products in this space.

I think iRobot has some meaningful tech advantages with the Roomba, and their brand is pretty strong, but that says a lot about Dyson's reputation.

third_deg, I am very much looking forward to seeing the tech you've hinted at (and your username hints at…). The Roomba AeroForce extractors are a great innovation that I have to imaging you're rightly proud of. You're starting at a brand deficit compared to your two top competitors — Roomba and Dyson, the rest of the names (including "iRobot", who the hell knows that name) are not household names, at least in the US — but if you have an unshakeable focus on building positive experiences for your customers at every moment, then brand will follow. Good luck.

Thanks for call out!

Yes brand is a very big deal. I've read Dyson reviews claiming it's the best when they never actually tested it or compared it to another brand, based completely on expectation.

The Aeroforce was a nice invention, that I'm reasonably happy with. But it was created to be the biggest boost in performance I could get without changing the basic Roomba architecture.

What I'm creating now is what happens when I have a clean sheet to work from.

This is how I feel when I watch the 360 Eye climb over stuff with its tank tracks:

Still planning to write up my thoughts on the 360 Eye now that I've had it a week or two, but in the meantime I thought I'd mention that I've been surprised that the small bin size hasn't been an issue for me. I live in a two-bedroom apartment with hard floors and a cat, and run the robot daily. I empty the bin each day, and it ranges from full-ish to just-sorta-maybe-half-full. No issues yet.

Like on my Dyson handheld, emptying the bin is super easy and convenient. I like that.

Still guessing the Roomba 980 is a better overall product for most people at this time, but as an engineering manager and technology enthusiast I like experimenting with the new, and the 360 Eye has been excellent and is doing a great job.
