Excellent product and value!
This vacuum does an amazing job picking up everything in its path, including pet hair. It goes over an area several times and gets the job done in a little over an hour. After three uses, l emptied the container and it was packed with dust, dirt, and pet hair that l could not easily see on the floor.

it gets lost
It does a pretty good job but it loses track of the docking station. We do not have a large open space. We have furniture that it goes around and then can't find it's way home. I wish it learned the room rather than random patterns.

Nice Robotic Vacuum for the price!
I had my doubts about purchasing this vaccum after hearing about my daughter's experience with another well-known and more expensive brand. But this little robot is a gem! It does a very good job on my carpets, it cleans the kitchen hardwood floor beautifully. It even gets the toe kick under the kitchen cabinets.
The only problem is it does have difficulty finding it's docking station, which is mentioned in other reviews. Considering the wonderful job of cleaning and the fantastic price, I don't mind manually putting it back on the dock when finished. It does occasionally find it's way there on it's own.

So far I really like it. I’ve only used it about 4 times. It does exactly as promised.

not sure what every ones problems are, the one I bought working fine, after 5 runs it finds its docking station every time. only got caught up on an area rug once, found its own way around the problem. at least half as noise as the regular vacumm.

works, and a good price point
I have to say, it does a really good job. I don't mind vacuuming, but I just don't get to it as often as I should. i have three cats, so lots of hair, but it picks up this fine dirt as well. i have a couple spots that he (yea, it is a he) gets stuck, and I have to manually stop and start him, so I stopped the scheduled vacuuming when I am not there. The bottom line, is, it does a great job of getting a lot of stuff off my floors. He finds the charging base most of the time....although it takes a while for him to do so. Sometimes up to 15 minutes, and I just say...'you are right there, just doc already'. he doesn't listen, but I go back later, and he has docked.

I love to watch it work
I have no complaints. I have owned the HRV425BLP for a month now and it does a great job. I could not believe how much dirt and dog hair it picks up. The only time that it has given me a error code was when I hoping that a rug in the front door would not cause trouble with it cleaning the entrance way but the rug was very thick so it would catch the end of the rug and get caught in the main brush. I now roll it up and set it to the side, out of the way. After I thought about it, I could not have done that with an ordinary upright sweeper because it would have done the same thing. I have read that some customers stated that there Robot had trouble finding it's charging dock. my experience is that It some times takes it more time, when Bandit ends up in one of the bed rooms but it will finally find it's charging base. Only once I had to pick it up and put it back in the same room as the charger and then when it see it's home it sneaks up on it like a cat playing with her toy and when it's lined up it speeds up a little like a cat jumping on it's toy. When you down load the App to your Mobil phone you get to name the sweeper so I named mine Bandit. The only option I wish it had was an invisible wall so I could restrict it from going places that I did not need it too. I now just lay a broom handle across the door opening to block it in. I realize that there are some more expensive robot's out there with more bells and whistles on them but they are twice the money or more for my money the Black and Decker does a great job for the money.

Does exactly what it should
This vacuum robot is pretty great. I love that it works all the surfaces, tile, carpet and hardwood. It picks up virtually everything including dirt, food, carpet lint and pet fur. (We have 4 cats and 4 children under 8. My only complaint was that “searching for charger” can be quite a feat for this robot. If your charger base is near any table legs or shelves, it tends to get confused. I found moving the charger base to an area where there aren’t other “base like things” to confuse it, corrected this issue and has worked perfectly since. I think, for what it’s designed to do, it does. It certainly should not be viewed as the only floor cleaning method (vacuum) one should have, but it definitely makes keeping floors clean easier and also dramatically cuts down the amount of times we need to be bringing out our central vac hoses etc.

This robot vacuum is well built, performs great and has an easy app to use with it. For the price we couldn’t really go with another brand. It does a great job.

Complete Junk
I purchased 5 of these as Christmas presents for my family; I kept one of the five for myself. They are all absolute garbage, all of them. None of them will vacuum for more than 2 minutes without an error. None of them operate correctly. They will not return to the base without an error; quite frankly, they will do nothing without an error. You have to go to the unit and reset it every time it starts to do anything.

I am very, VERY disappointed. I hope the money I gave you guys is giving you less trouble than these vacuums are giving me. I don't mean to be rude, but it is pathetic that not one unit can operate correctly out of five. Complete junk by Black and Decker.

How do you program the valcuum and does it require a smart phone?
A shopper on Nov 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It does not require a smart phone. After reading a description of the smart phone app, I concluded it didn't do anything useful and I didn't bother bother to install it.
I’ve never had a robotic vac. Very interested for cat fur. Lots of hardwood floors. Do these machines scratch wood floors at all?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Just had our hardwood floors refinished. Also have several pets! The robotic vac does NOT scratch the floors, and you won't believe all the pet hair it picks up! I can't comment on how it works on carpet, but it's a lifesaver for hardwood, tile, etc.
I have tile and hardwood. There is a 3/4" transition from one to the other, basically a ranch style base turned on its side form a fairly smooth transition. Will the vac be able to make the transition?
Ken P on Dec 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have the same going into one of the bathrooms and it has had no trouble crossing it.
Do you have to set "boundaries"?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2018
Does the vac detect stairs and not tumble down tham?
Ken P on Dec 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Does detect stairs good luck
Do I have to plug the base in the room I want cleaned? I have mine plugged in kitchen. My bedroom and bathroom are on the left of that. But it goes from kitched to livingroom then back to charger when finished, never to the other end of my trailer where my bedroom and bath are.
Lucy R on Jan 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: As long as the cleaner can find its way into the room without being blocked it will clean it.
