FreddyTex wrote:just look at some youtube videos. Homebot can't deal with narrow entries. Multiple room isn't also as effective. A neato cleans 7 rooms in a row (architecture as you want). A friend has bought the LG 3.0 over here and I went over there with my Neato XV-25. The LG patterns aren't that effective and honestly, who's caring about "suction modes". The thing is commodity and should always run the "optimized" pattern. I do never use a "spot cleaning" option. (Then I use a regular vacuum (done in less time).
Suction power is also less!!
But yes, he's beautiful, quality is probably better and corner cleaning is effective.
The neato is fragile, lacks a "sidebrush" and is't beautiful.

I seriously doubt you'd run up $500+ charging 2 little batteries over one battery.
Another for Roboking:
-actively learns about it's surroundings each time it's started.
-better product development (compare previous generations of both robot lines: Lg keep incorporating new technology and upgrades in their robots... Neato, just like iRobot... Pretty much same old same old. Just fixes and minor improvements-in a different colour. New brush. New filter. Wheel mount fix.

If it uses NiMh battery instead, i would have to purchase 2 additional set of batteries by now! None of my previous bots, Roomba, Neato, etc. operated beyond 8 months on one set of batteries.
