Botvac D5 cleans floors but can't match Neato's flagship robot

Better equipped than the budget Botvac D3, the Neato Botvac D5 cleans a larger area and picks up more dirt but can't hold a candle to Neato's flagship Botvac Connected.

The Neato Botvac D5 Connected is built to automatically vacuum indoor floors whether they happen to be carpet, hardwood or somewhere in between.

Neato's D5 uses an advanced laser navigation system to map floors and rooms as well as avoid objects.

The D5 sports Neato's signature D-shaped chassis.

The Botvac D5 comes with an enhanced high-performance filter for its dust tray.

You can remove the dust tray from the top of the robot vacuum.

From the underside of the Botvac D5 you can see its main roller brush, wheels and side brush.

Both the Botvac D5 and Botvac D3 have simplified controls compared with those of the Botvac Connected.
