Good clean for an even better price
This device does both vacuuming and mopping and provides a good clean. It doesnt reach all the corners etc but is great for its price for in between cleans. The machine is easy to clean and comes with replacement mop and cleaning brushes which is a great bonus. The only downfall for us is that it struggles to find its way back to the docking station- but we drive it back with the remote that was included.
I bought one because I don’t get around to vacuuming as much as I’d like. I was sceptical at first but it does a really good job. Really happy with the purchase. Just make sure you pack away any cloths horses, he’s fine with little steps in the house, like in and out of the bathroom but he gets caught on the bottom of my cloths horse.
Bought the deebot ozmo 610 from Aldi and it is the best! Picks up so much stuff,moves easy from carpet to floorboards without struggle.
Only thing mine gets stuck over the chair legs occasionally which is easy fixed just putting chairs up but other then that love it for the vacuum side and how it can be controlled on an app while you are not home is a great addition to it also
Definitely a great purchase
Very happy for the price!
Carpet--works above my expectations, very good at removing pet hair.
Vinyl- also great, mopping works better than I expected too. I put draught stoppers along my carpet edge so it doesn't go on carpet while mopping.
-it can occasionally have trouble finding its way back to the dock to charge, which means it only cleans for the 90 minutes the battery works for. For the price I am happy.

Quality build but.......
Very early days on tiles only but it took about 1000 attempts before I could finally connect the unit to my phone, frustrating to say the least.
It's well built tho, solid and as a basic self drive mini vac it does a fair job tidying up, just don't expect too much (anything) from the mop, that function is just a quick wipe with a damp cloth, but hey-the mops a bonus IMO.
Not being able to set and control it's cleaning boundaries tho is a major issue as you simply can't 'set and forget'.
If you do it ends up stuck somewhere it's not supposed to...
House has never been cleaner
This is the most impressive thing I’ve ever bought it cleans amazingly I wish I had bought this earlier I bought it from my local Aldi for about 300$ make sure to buy this robot it is unbelievable
I use it on wooden floors and a bit of carpet it’s perfect to have in a small or large house it’s overall performance is very nice it has a large amount of bin space for dust for a little robotic vacuum
Instructions provided with this are poor. Have followed all instructions exactly (first step is download app and register then add robot by scanning QR code on the robot - no QR code on the robot not on any of the packaging). Added robot manually to app but still unable to connect despite multiple attempts and going through all of the troubleshooting. I’m using a 4G connection, but it’s still not working. The company’s solution: buy a different router. This is a standard modem router from Telstra, it’s not new or fancy technology, it’s just sta...ndard. How about you update your firmware and software to accommodate current technology. Seems the technology they’re using is poor or obsolete - I can’t see any other reason. When I connect my phone to the robot connection the app is so slow it can’t even lodge a request for support through the app and I can’t even load google. I’ve followed online suggestions, YouTube videos, nothing will let me use this product as it’s intended. I’ve wasted 2hrs trying to troubleshoot. Taking it back for a refund and will purchase a different brand.
Purchased in September 2020 for $299.00.
Great Robotic vacuum cleaner
The Deebot 610 is used on carpet and tiled floors.
I have had the unit for over 12 months and it has always been ready to use.
It is very easy to control and it is very efficient in cleaning in tight corners and curved spaces in the house.
It has built in variable traveling speeds (in open areas) which reduce the overall cleaning time, as it covers a longer run in a shorter time.
The dust holding capacity is quite large for a cleaner of its type and price.
The battery has almost 2 hours capacity, when other makes, of the same price have only have 1 hour capacity.
It is very easy to clean and it does not take long to recharge the battery.
All up a very reasonably priced top quality unit, well worth a look at.

My house has never been cleaner. Great value for money
This is my first robot vacuum cleaner. I am very happy with the cleaning results. This Deebot cost $299 at Aldi. It picks up all visible dust and debris on the floors.
After looking at reviews online, I thought I was going to have a smarter application than this model comes with. I thought it would be capable of being 'sent' to one room to clean it, or to zone off certain parts of the house etc. Unfortunately, the application really only lets you select the 'mop' mode. Other than that, you may as well just hit the 'clean' button and let it go o...
