Neato improved on its already-impressive robot vacuums with the BotVac line. Roomba 870 fans might find that Neato's BotVac 85 offers similar features and performance, but you get more accessories (like three filters rather than the 870's two) and much shorter run times.

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have analyzed the top phrases of successful -- and unsuccessful -- Kickstarter campaigns. Hint: mentioning cats doesn't hurt.
The Adjustable Bread And Sandwich Toaster looks like an ordinary toaster. The included sandwich basket makes it different.
This robot vacuum is a whopping $320 less than the iRobot Roomba 880 and performed similarly well. However, its cheap filter makes it hard to use -- if you want a Neato, stick with the $399 XV Signature or the $449 XV Signature Pro.
If you have hardwood floors (and no pets), you'll likely be more than happy with just how well the Hovo performs. Just don't expect Roomba-level design or smarts.
It's a $100 handset showdown -- CNET stacks Samsung's GS4 Mini with Motorola, HTC, and Apple's own mid-range versions of their flagships.
The Roomba 880 is the most well-rounded, capable bot we've encountered so far, but the $449 Neato Robotics XV Signature Pro still wins the pet hair performance test on all flooring surfaces.
Revenue for the software heavyweight comes in way short of expectations, and hardware systems sales continue to fall.
The XV-21 is a great all-around robot vacuum and a viable Roomba alternative, but among Neatos, we'll stick with the brainier, similarly priced XV Signature Pro.
