Does it do stairs ?

What a nice pet

craigr98 says:

I want one. And by the way already subscribed.

RiscutBiscut says:

Bro, you need a friend for Steve…like a dog. Think of all the dog related tech you could cover!

Болгарский Мужик says:

I use napalm to clean the hard to reach surfaces.

Xiaomi Robot Vacuum is much better looking

I don’t even remember how I found your channel but I’m so glad I did

Chris Walker says:

Haha, Naked Gun!

Sarfaraz Hussein Merchant says:

It’s similarly priced to a flagship smartphone, so not so bad for the convenience it offers. i’m so pleased Tech Chap is doing so well, and exploring tech more broadly. Big Love oxo

bublebuble2004 says:

whats it like with long dog hair ?

EliTheWolf says:

Good luck with the 200k subs! You deserve it 😀 I own both the Roomba 980 and Xiaomi vacuum, the Xiaomi easily wins it for me. It’s faster, quieter, and much smarter at navigating, all for a third of the price of the 980! Would love to see you do a comparison of both

Loch Ness Biker says:

pointless product …. and video ……

II TANFi3LD II says:

These will never be mainstream/popular because the mums have to know about them… And just a guess, I don’t think they watch tech channels on YouTube. Or YouTube in general…

SJW’s. Calm… Calm… Calm…. please… Chill… Ffs

Harry Trueman says:

cayden luchinger says:

NumaticVacuum says:

Nothing will ever replace a Hoover Junior. It Beats – As It Sweeps – As It Cleans.

Robbert van der Eem says:

Xiaomi is the only one that can have my money. The rest is crap. And yes, I have 3 now.

Rob Crook says:

That discoloured mark on the stairs bothered me, is that from a knot in the wood?

harvinsky says:

why Steve?

Jervin says:

It’s not worth it people they’re too expensive

Unless you have a cat…

missdiva421 says:

Nice gadget but definitely not worth the price. Great presentation as always. Thank you.

Wolf Maniac says:

Piyush kumar ANIME says:

Nihil0s says:

Could you please do some inexpensive laptop reviews or comparisons, like under $600?

I was wondering about these now that Samsung has one coming out now. Thanks for the great review!

Jans Cholo Chua says:

Linus tech tips did a review on a vacuum bot too earlier o.O

aaron4820 says:

I was gifted a Xiaomi robot vacuum, which I was incredibly skeptical at first, however the thing happens to live (and charge) under my sofa, so it’s entirely out of sight, no harm I thought. However, now I’m about 6 months into owning it I can’t quite imagine going back to not having one, it’s like before and after a dishwasher. Upon sending it off to do its first job, I was super impressed by the fact that a floor plan (and cleaning path) was generated showing where it had been and the coverage in sq/m, and any skepticism was blown away once I opened the dust compartment for the first time to show just how useless I am as a human vacuum cleaner compared to it. We call ours Mochi…
