To compare the Neato XV-11 and the Neato XV-21 robot vacuum cleaners and decide which is better is a real challenge. The basic designs of the XV-11 and XV-21 – the case size, weight, and so forth – are virtually identical except for the color scheme. Unless you really care about that, and some reasonably might, there isn’t much to distinguish the two models in this area.
The Neato XV-21 is one of my favorite robot vacuum cleaners. It isn’t hard to see why. Stylish, functional, and just fun. That sums it up. But I couldn’t feel right without explaining in detail. Like the Neato XV-11, the XV-21 case is a semi-circle on one end and a rectangle at the other. It measures 13″ x 12.5″ x 4″. That shape gives it the best of both worlds.
Neato is something of a newcomer to the world of robotic vacuum cleaners. No matter. They’re making up time fast. The Neato XV-11 is a powerful, easy-to-use, and very efficient robot vacuum cleaner. The laser guidance system is superb and the LCD menu/display is very helpful. The Neato XV-11 can clearly give market leader iRobot and their Roomba line some serious competition.
