Demand for robot vacuum cleaners in the market is increasing steadily. We love the idea of ​​seeing how technology is able to help us, and as the boring to avoid the work, vacuum or manually sweep the floor of our house.

One of the robots successful to enter our ranking of the Best Robot Vacuum Cleaner of 2019, Nieto Botawak D7, was the latest model of the company Neeto Robotics, which was the pioneer in designing the first intelligent robot with the Intelligent System by Laser. Was known for. .

Botvac D7 can be purchased for € 899 through its official website. In addition to this flagship, you should know that other options for robot vacuum cleaner are somewhat cheaper, which are not different from quality.

The example is RoboVac 30C from Eufy, which can be purchased for € 209.99 or € 229.99 for ILIFE A7. However, if you like to bet on Nieto, as we said, the brand, at the top of our ranking of the best robot vacuum cleaner, you also have some more economical options.

Therefore, in this article we have decided to compare two Nieto robot vacuum models: Boatwake D4 and Botwake D6

Price and availability

If you do not want to spend about 900 euro on a robotic vacuum cleaner, but you want to continue betting on the Nieto brand, then you can be interested in the boatwalk D4 connected. You can buy it at € 529 on Neato’s official website.

One more option, with some more expensive, but more current and better features, the boatwalk D6 is connected. You can also buy it for € 729 on its official website.

Next, we will talk more deeply about its main difference and its most important features, so if you have not yet decided on a model or any other, read!

Functioning

After removing your Neato from the box, gather all its parts correctly and find a place to leave your cargo base, to be able to take full advantage of the vacuum cleaner and connect it to Wi-Fi. Download the app. Networks

During the first cleaning, both D4 and D6 will be dedicated to making a receipt for your home, that is, you will see how your home plan has been planned in the app. In the app you can also see meters of cleaned area and dedicated cleaning time.

In our case, the house that was cleaned, its area was 50 square meters, and dedicated time was 42 minutes. The first difference, which you can decide on D6, if you have a house with many floors, then D4 is capable of accumulating only one plane, while with D6 you can save many planes of many floors, This is a very portable device you can make in this way (you can use it in many homes).

If you look at the aesthetics of both devices, it is easy to realize that they are practically the same. Neito is characterized by his D shape, for which he can incorporate a larger brush than a round design robot.

Above the D shape, a circular tower stands out, this is what allows Nieto to be implemented as a laser-smart technology.

Although this technique (which we will discuss in the following sections), can be very useful, we must also say that the design of its hardware can prevent the robot, vacuum with some space under some sofa and armchair, get stuck Are.

It is necessary to remove any type of cable or object on the ground before cleaning, as it can hamper the performance of the robot. When we tested the D6, it did not dodge a cloth line (despite its size).

Apart from this, as we mentioned in the ‘Design‘ section, the better formation structure which allows the robot to perform laser reading, from which the device is trying to pass under the sofa.

It hit us that its laser technology was not able to calculate the space needed to enter. It was annoying in earlier reconnaissance cleaning, because D6 was stuck and whistle buzz. By pressing the button and keeping it off the sofa, it was constantly trying to go under the furniture.

This problem can be solved after the second cleaning, because once you map your home, you can select the areas you do not want to reach the robot, as our In case, under the sofa or in the area of ​​clothing.

Apart from this, for more personal experience, both models allow different cleaning modes: ‘echo‘, ‘turbo‘ and ‘special care‘. The first mode is standard, one mode that will try to spend the minimum energy, the second makes a more powerful cleaning (will spend more battery) and the third intends to be less noise, although the difference is very minor.

The rest design does not allow any complaint, both robots have more capacity to store dirt compared to most robots, so it is unnecessary to empty them often and as we mentioned earlier, their large brush Effectively manage to capture almost any type. Dirt

It attracts our attention that D4 does not have protrusing brushes, perhaps it has to be stopped from reaching more places than the D6, in which these are the brushes that roam in a circle and able to reach more corners. Are there.

The lower brush is quite large in both models, this stands out against other brands in which we have seen much smaller and less powerful brushes. 

The finish is in matt black, a color and style that seems quite neutral and ideal for a cleaning robot. The front part houses the bumper, the only button available to the device, and two LEDs that indicate the function the robot is performing and the battery available.

There is nothing that specially stands in the design beyond the specialty of the brand D-shaped, which separates itself from the most competitive robots, which has a completely circular shape.

Benefits

All Neato Robots are characterized by four main functions: their above-D-shaped design, Neato App with which you can schedule for continuous improvement to cleaning, compatibility and software updates with other smart devices like Apple Watch or Alexa. Are.

LaserSmart technology, featuring the NETO vacuum cleaner, allows the robot to know your home and avoid movements in a random way. Apart from this, as we have already explained, you can control the app from those areas for which you do not want D4 or D6 to be nearby.

On the other hand, the fact that the base has a D shape, makes it possible to install on the straight part a brush that goes from side to side and that is larger than what you will find in round vacuum cleaners. 

Neato says that his model D6 is able to collect better animal hairs, but in our experience, both models were able to collect with equal effectiveness the hairs that our cat is leaving throughout the house.

A difference between the two models is the duration of their batteries. The Botvac D4 offers a battery life of 75 minutes, while the D6 offers 120 minutes. 

However, the two devices have an automatic recharge function, that is, the robot will return to its charging base to recharge itself just long enough to complete the cleaning of the entire house and then return to its base.

To finish, we want to talk about your app, which is available for Android and completely free for iOS The app allows you to add many robotic Neato vacuum cleaners (if you have more than one), and control the device’s cleaning in a very personal way. It’s a nimble interface, easy to understand and you will not have to spend to use.

Verdict

Both the Botvac D4 and the D6, are two very good purchase options. Its price in this case, is synonymous with quality and efficiency. We may opt for the D4, since it offers practically the same benefits, but for 200 euros less. 

If your house has several floors, or if you want to use the robot in several floors, then you may want to choose the D6 model for its ability to remember multiple planes and for its better battery life. (Also if you want to use it in several houses).  

If these two factors are not relevant to you, then we recommend the D4, a powerful robot vacuum cleaner, with a good design and with the ability to recognize and memorize the layout of your house in a very effective way
