CleanMate is your personal robot that will sweep and vacuum so you don't have to. From carpet to hardwood to tile, CleanMate handles a variety of surfaces with ease.

CleanMate comes with an easy to use remote that fits right on the unit when you're not using it so it doesn't get lost. The compact design of CleanMate is for easy storage and low energy consumption. Safety features include: stops automatically when unit gets stuck, comes out from dark areas and stops in better lit area once finished cleaning or when battery power is low, gives a warning beep when low on power, and has an auto-stop rotor when picked up.

Great Robot Vac for the MoneyMar 16, 2006
"music fiend & art addict"
I was a little apprehensive when I first decided to purchase a robotic vac, since I had never used anything like it before. I came up with a thousand reasons in my mind why it might be money down the toilet. However, I am happy to say that essentially the vacuum performs as well as could be expected.
WORD OF CAUTION: This vac DOES NOT perform well on sculpted carpet-even if it has a short nap! I could see how it would have difficulties on carpet that has any real height to the nap at all. For somebody with wood or tile floors this thing is a dream!
*Reusable, washable filters (3).
*Easy to operate.
*Wide variety of cleaning modes that work well.
*UV light option for disinfecting (although I wonder how well that really works).
*Compartment for adding scent packet (manual states that dryer sheet can be used as well).
*Easy clean removable brush and removable wheel compartments to clean out stuff that inevitably will collect there.
*Picks up pet hair and dust GREAT!
*Beeps to let you know that it is stuck or the battery has gotten low and automatically shuts down.
*Only runs for about 80 minutes at a time on a full charge- takes about 2 1/2 hours to charge back up.
*Just doesn't work as well on carpets as wood or tile.(Gets stuck a lot easier around furniture on the carpet)
Overall a great robot vac for the money. I find it rivals some of the more expensive brands features, without the jump in price. Bought this one to see how robotic vacs will really get the job done. Will probably bump up to model with longer battery life and charging dock, that can be programmed to vacuum on a schedule. I guess the next purchase will be the robotic lawn mower for the yard...

Clean House Every Day!!Jan 19, 2006
I have done a lot of research comparing all the robotic vacuums and came down to either CleanMate or Roomba. I finally decided on CleanMate as I sorely wanted the UV light disinfecting feature. Let me tell you that it really works, my old old house is finally odor free to my ultra sensitive nose. It also have 2 other features that I rate better than Roomba. The dustbin is visible easily and the remote is small and docked on the vacuum so it won't get lost. It charges rather quickly, I think about 2.5 hours and each charge is sufficient to cover my little house entirely. It moves deliberately and doesn't mar any furniture. I am extremely pleased as the price/performance is definitely the best in the current market, hands down. In my opinion, everyone needs a CleanMate.

Glad I purchased!Mar 05, 2006
By seattle east
Everyone in my house hates to vacuum so our floors (vinyl & berber carpet) would go weeks without cleaning. Finally, we decided to get a robotic vacuum and after doing a bit of research, decided on this one. We have it clean 1 room at a time and it does a great job. The dustbin is easy to clean, though it's a pain to brush off the air filter each time and it does need to be recharged after it's cleaned 2 rooms but otherwise, I have no complaints. We have a thick rug in our hallway and the robot has no trouble getting that clean either, just be sure to stay away from plush rugs! We don't have pets but we do track in a lot of pine needles and this guy gets them all. Now we don't stress about getting the big upright vacuum out every 4-6 weeks because our carpets look great!

Do not buySep 12, 2008
The 4th time I ever ran the vacuum cleaner, it stopped working and ran in a circle over and over again for an hour. One wheel completely stopped moving. The company's website has a FAQ, and "wheel malfunction," was listed as a common problem due to a defective motor. The solution they listed was to contact the company for a replacement; however, when I emailed the company about this apparently common problem, they were very unhelpful. Thank God I kept my receipt, as they weren't even willing to talk with me until I emailed a copy of my receipt to them. Even after I sent them my reciept they made me jump through a variety of hoops filling out deliberately confusing paper-work in order to get my repair done. They then refused to just mail me my replacement motor. I finally got approval to mail back my cleaner for repairs. After paying $20 in postage to mail back the cleaner, I never again heard from metapo, nor have I gotten my repaired/replaced vacuum in the mail. In fact, when I emailed metapo to find out why they decided not to honor their warranty even after approving me for repairs, they decided to stop answering my emails. I have never had a worse customer service experience. You'd think that the company would be sympathetic to selling me a product that has a motor they know to be defective. Do not buy this product, or anything else from metapo. At best, they are inept and making and servicing their product. At worst, they're deliberate thieves.

More dependable than RoombaSep 07, 2006
I started with Roombas but they all broke down after a few weeks of use. When new, Roombas do a good job and that is the reason for the good reviews. However, once you are out of the Roomba warranty, they not only provide no repair service but wont sell you replacement parts. I junked my last Roomba because a simple plastic part wore out, something Roomba engineers should have know would happen based on how it is used.
Clean-Mate is not as clever as Roomba and has weaker suction but it does not fail as fast as Roomba. It is not great, but until somebody comes up with a dependable robotic vacuum cleaner, it is adequate for those who want the robot experience.
