Our vacuum cleaner is dying. Have been looking at getting a new one. My girlfriend is thinking of a dyson but I have been looking into these robot ones that seem to do the job with a lot less hassle but she's not convinced.

Has anyone got one? If so, any good?

I see them advertised for near 120'ish...cheaper than a Dyson. Would probably have to get another 'roll along' vacumm (as opposed to an upright) to the edges but it would be good, if these things would do their thing without hassle and when I'm out!

How can the robot ones go into corners and with attachments go along skirting?

I have had two dysons, the original model for 11 years, have dc07 as good, but a nightgmare to change the belt, and flex is a lot cheaper than the lovely old rubber one on dc01.

One of my friends has one, and it's a great party piece as it wiggles its little bum back into the charger when its done..... I got myself a Henry and am quite happy with it. It's got a big bag, long lead and is easy to manouvre.

Good thing I didn't actually realise what I posted until you pointed it out. Am still laughing!
