    Interesting. I might need one of those! The reviews on Amazon are pretty good, but I do have carpets:

    I haven't used that duster. A friend with hardwood floors uses an I-robot and loves it. Her model docks itself and recharges when necessary.

    Looks interesting. The reviews say you still have to pick up what it collects because it isn't a vacuum. Will look at it next time I'm at a place that sells it.

    Read through the manual. You have to pick up rugs, chairs, blind cords and electric cords. The wheels need to be cleaned frequently so hair won't damage the unit. I imagine thread is an issue too. Sounds like a lot of prep to me and more of an inconvenient convenience. It's $40.

    Remove hair from the wheels? My dog and two cats whole purpose in life in to shed! I think it would be a very noisy situation for me. My dog, Annie, would be trying to herd it and barking all the time and the cats would be terrified. I think I'll just live with my dust rhinos.

    I got one at an estate sale. Brought it home and turned it on. 3 Bs went crazy, got the little one by the tail just as Dh walked, laughed til I cried, had to chase little one ran into lamp. It wasn't even on for 2 minutes. Thought little one was going to have nervous breakdown. When I finally was able to catch him and turn it off, little one started barking at me like he was cursing. He would have nothing to do with me rest of the night. Next day it was sitting in bottom of closet, little one saw it and marked it. I threw it out after that. Poor baby, he sees one on TV and heads for his kennel. Then barks again.

    + another $10 for 20 disposable electrostatic clothes that fit it. It's just a version of the Swiffer, but with more prep and upkeep necessary. Not for me, thanks.

    I haven't used the duster, but I have the robot vacuum, and love it.

    I bought one similar to it that was about half that price (and built half as well) and used papers similar to the swiffer cloths. It worked ok on laminate flooring. Was a big help with pet hair

    How can it do corners when it's round?

    I use the "Mint" my son got me for Christmas. It's name is Gilroy, because Gliroy was here. I love it.

    We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.

    I also wonder how any of these does corners and handles all the little pieces of thread.
