With an 8.5 in. front brush and 40 minute run time, it resembles the old original Neato XV with a side brush -- Vorwerk VR100 -- but with shorter run time, so oriented towards smaller spaces. More info needed on control features, scheduling etc., price, supplies like filters and side brushes (they wear out) -- and the expensive battery. WiFi not mentioned. The brush looks like an all blade brush, and whether there is a bristle brush for it not clear. This class of robots competes a lot on price -- especially when reliability of a new product is unknown. A second generation of an older model with some improvements.
Fans of the old Neato robots annoyed by the higher prices of added doodads on the successors might be interested.

I may be mistaken, but it looked in one video above like the side brush rotated clockwise -- away from the intake. How's that supposed to work? Maybe an illusion of filming, with frame speed slower than the brush, stroboscopic.
There should be some cleaning demo vids with scattered debris of the usual kinds, show clearing the path.

[edit] Another video shows it correctly; they claim better corner cleaning, fairly obvious with a front corner side brush.
I have found these come at a cost, in frequent brush replacement, breaking against sharp edges, and pulling wires away from walls. Yet they are a popular feature on robots except not so much on the newer, more powerful class of vacuums like Dyson and others. They don't clean carpet where dirt gets embedded. So, hard floors are popular.

While I wish my aging Neatos could handle slightly higher changes in floor level (in my case worn treads don't help), but this AEG's ability to climb 22mm would put it at risk of escaping outside with my doors open in summer. It'd be nice for it climb onto the bathroom tiles, but I'm not sure I want to vacuum the backyard :think:
#1 Neato XV-11 SW 2.0 Board Rev 113 / 3500mAh battery pack installed May 2013 / Pet & Allergy pack installed Sept 2013. In July 2014, received and repaired a faulty #2 Neato XV-11, running Lithium Power 4400mAh battery since July 2015

That's what mag strips are for -- if it even uses them.

Saw 1299 Euros in the post fine print. That's a premium robot price, for other bots with cyclone extraction etc.
They need to show what is so special about it to cost more than the current Neato models apparently similar. Maybe it is just available where others are not. Mysteries abound.

It is listed often as Electrolux MotionSense.
