Very impressive... especially the comparison video with the LG & new Samsung 8950 models. I wonder what this new iClebo Arte model will cost and if it'll be available worldwide?

Appears to be very nice.

All the head to heads I can find show it outperforms the other mapping robots in pick-up performance. I am uncertain whether these are biased head to head reviews exploiting some advantage this has in particle size or weight of items or if they are honest reviews (people really intending to determine which is better), obviously the "yujinrobot" stuff on youtube is biased. I never did see a decent head to head on the products iclebo made that were sold under the "phillips homerun" name, so past performance can't be used either.

I recently ordered an LG VR6174LVM, and this robot (the iclebo arte) was the runner up, two reasons... it still bumps things (intentionally, I don't expect the LG to be perfect), and there just aren't any reviews that are believably unbiased.

If anyone has their hands on one and has a few other robots to pit it against, I would love to see a third party "pick up test" this time with varying crumb / dust sizes.

Hmmm... Nice indeed.

That head to head video says a lot for me...

I wouldn't think that rice was weighted or somehow made more difficult to pick up for the LG & Samsung

It is quite obvious that the LG mostly just bulldozes the rice across the floor, (I have heard it has vitually no suction power, but I cant find any specs on that for either model anyway) I would have thought it's main brush would have more effect. I know suction power only plays a small role in the effectiveness of a Robot vacuum, and I see that according to Yujin Robot http://www.iclebo.com/english/ iClebo Arte's main brush spins at 816 times per minute (almost 14 times per second) I also see that they quote results on a Sand test as Arte having 89% pick up compared to an average of 54% for other brands. (the test is stated as being to an International test stanrdard) (I guess some would claim that they might be lying)

In that video he Samsung looks like it picks up nearly as good as the Arte, but, seeing that the Samsung gets stuck easily and definitely does not negoitiate the area or obstacles anywhere nearly as well as iClebo Arte, (and that the one Samsung I have seen operating was so loud) it is a no brainer for me.
I don't expect the LG to be perfect


I am sure we can't expect any Robot vacuum cleaner to be perfect, now or even in the future either, especially considering that every home environment is going have it's own unique circumstances with furnishings, layout and design.

I am going to buy Arte in coming weeks and will give my own honest opinion here some time after that.

Dear EMC,

I read your posting with interest. As you've mentioned in September 2012 that you'll give your honest opinion of the performance of Iclebo Arte after you've bought the machine. I'm awaiting to read your honest review of the machine performance as I'm about to commit to one, either the iRobot Roomba 780 or the LG Iclebo Arte.

I haven't make up my mind yet as each machine has its own strengths & weaknesses based on my research and some videos that I viewed over the Youtube posted by some independent parties. Pls post your review of your honest opinion for us to consider or you can either email it directly to me at trevc99 (at) gmail (dot) com....Thanks & look forward to seeing your review.

Who is the Australian distributor? Does the iClebo have a cliff function?

Old thread but I thought I may as well answer as I now have one. Yes it does have a cliff function like most robots. Seems pretty good at mapping as well. Clearly more accurate than the Samsungs I own.
current bots: Clebo Arte, Vorwerk VR-100 (one broken one new), Neato XV-25, Neato XV-12, Roomba 564, Evo Mint 2, Roomba 770, Hauzen VC-RE70V, Samsung SR8980, Karcher RC3000, Robomow RL350 (lawnmower)
previous bots: Samsung SR8845, Neato XV-15

Surprised by what seems like low interest in the iClebo Arte - Costcom.com has very positive reviews of it.

CONSUMER REPORTS 04/19/2015 online rated the Roomba 880 #1... iClebo #2

They seemed to miss a lot of criteria that is important to me. The only thing that they mentioned about specifically about pet hair was that the Roomba 880 and the Botvac 80 cat hair had to be cleaned out of the brush/blades. The navigation evaluation was based on run time, clearance, obstacle & entrapment avoidance and ability to return to base. (I didn't see anything about room to room navigation.) Oddly, they rated the noise level excellent on all the Robot Vacuums except the Neato XV-21 which got above average.

They rated the Robot Vacuums in this order:
$700 Roomba 880 ................ recommended
$450 iClebo Arte YCR-M05 ...... best buy ($330 at Costco.com 04/19/2015)
$700 Ecovac Deebot D77
$900 Miel Scout RX1
$550 Neato Botvac 80 (I got my Botvac with the Combo Brush, 5 reg filters for $299 at Costco 12/2014)
$400 Neato XV-21

I don't think the prices are real world accurate.
Some of them go straight to Amazon and might be close to full retail price.

iClebo Arte YCR-M05...It must have stood the test of time or something because posts date back to 2012.
The 2012 model numbers match this one..Check them out for yourself...
Rated #2 Consumer Reports Online "best buy" 4/19/15, always take any review with a grain of salt. They are supposed to have no affiliations with manufacturers and have unbiased reviews.
Please do your own research to verify this information. Some review websites are just marketing tools.
Other sites like C-net, I don't know how reliable and consistent the reviews are.
Your criteria and Consumer Reports may not be compatible or they may not cover other important issues like dependability and availability of repair parts. Also, they change the reports if you follow them over time.

We have been concentrating on Roomba 880 and Botvac (all the Botvacs are the same. The model number indicates the color and accessary package). viewtopic.php?f=10&t=18038

I'm trying to figure out why there are 3 other robot vacuums ranked between the Roomba 880 and the Botvac 80.
How could they rank so well and appear to be ignored?

Jdong Reply:
Yeah, that is pretty curious. I'm kind of surprised, because CNET and others have given the Miele and iClebo some less than favorable reviews. I presume Neato and Roomba are popular primarily because of their marketing and brand name recognition. I've found that Roomba is essentially a household name, even amongst non-tech workers. Neato is less well known, and I had some friends come over who just called it "the Roomba knockoff", and I had to spend a good deal of time defending the Neato and explaining what things it does well.

Many claim that the Miele is just a clone of the iClebo, and I've honestly not even bothered to research the Deebot before making up my mind.

Consumer Reports isn't always spot-on with the accuracy of their reviews, though. For example, I've pretty comprehensively tested dishwashing detergents and found that the ones that worked best for me did not score well in Consumer Reports's tests. You pay a price for making a scientifically repeatable test. For example, if I asked you to construct me a robot obstacle course, what you come up with is probably very different from my house, and a robot that passes with flying colors on your obstacle course might get tripped up left and right in my place.

Costco will take it back if you don't like it and even prorate your membership refund. I have read that non-members can buy at a % markup. Costco usually doesn't sell junk. But, junk is in the eye of the beholder.

Reviews available at Costco.com $330 04/19/2015

Please respond at this topic post. I only started the new topic because I didn't think anyone would look at a 2012 title. But, viewers will open the 4/19/15 topic title an be guided to this topic. Let's keep the new posts together. I would change the old 2012 title if I could.

Is the costco iClebo version YCR-M05? Sometimes Costco has have good deals on older versions.

Anyone have an iClebo and can tell me if it maps from room to room like Neato? Can it recharge and continue cleaning?
