Forget Roomba deals: this is the robot vacuum you want to buy on Black Friday

As somebody who is at this point essentially half man, half cat hair, I’m increasingly seeing the value of robot vacuums, and have been putting my research in to making sure I get the right model. And while you may be scouring for Roomba deals this Black Friday, a far better solution is actually right under your nose: say hello to the Neato Botvac D5 and D7 Connected models, both 50% off at Amazon for Black Friday.

Both models sit proudly in our ‘best robot vacuum cleaner roundup‘ and you’ll be extremely happy with either. The D7 Connected usually goes for GBP799 but can be bought for GBP399 today only.

The D5 Connected typically sells for GBP599 but is GBP299 for today.

So, what’s the difference between them? I asked the man who put them through their paces for our in-depth reviews, Jon Bray, and was told that the chief difference is that the D7 allows you to set ‘no-go areas’ in your house within the app, making sure the vacuum doesn’t go where it’s not welcome. As a model that’s a bit newer, it also has a “more efficient blower,” apparently, but otherwise it’s identical: same capacity, same motor and same drive gears.

Even the Alexa integration, once unique to the D7 Connected, has been patched into the D5 Connected.

Bear in mind that these are our top-rated robot vacuum cleaners even at full price: with 50% off, they’re an absolute steal.

So here’s what I’m going to do: I’m going to finish writing this piece, source pictures, put it live and then order a Neato Botvac D5 Connected vacuum.

I strongly advise you to do the same, minus the writing part.
