It looks like round bots need a side brush to do much in corners. Square fronts were adopted to fit in better. Yet round ones can navigate chair legs easier. Samsung added poking in three times for good measure (anything with no hardware cost is fair game). I remain skeptical of highest cost products here.

That wasn't very scientific. You could say, biased towards an American product. But hey, there's a surprise, along with all the fake smiles of hosts.

The Dyson was unable to climb very basic obstacles, and faulted 8 times. Also got trapped on tassels that the Roomba has been specifically designed to not let happen.

As they said, the point of robot vacuum is to not need human intervention. As soon as it gets stuck it's no longer of value (much less 8 times and 5 hours for the Dyson). Compared to no faults and 2 hours for the Roomba.

Scientific would have been to report on the weight of dirt picked up, but since the Dyson could not get under the couch either that would have also gone Roombas way.

This was a tough one to claim bias on. Especially since they included the Dyson as a "Top" brand. It's 4th best according to CNet testing.

Samsung would have done better for example as would Neato

Agreed, this is not bias at all. Roomba is superior to the Dyson in just about every way except for suction power. Whether you look at the hairless brushes, battery life, avoiding tangles, getting under low furniture, Roomba wins.
