The 2nd Generation model is the upgraded model over the 1st generation model.

It is a 2 in 1 vacuum and mop, whereas the 1st generation is a vacuum only.

The 2nd generation has slightly better suction, navigation and cleaning technology over the 1st generation.

So, assuming the price is suitable for you, the 2nd generation model is for you if you want an upgraded model.



These are smartphone app controlled robo vacs, with Alexa voice control as well.

The D3 is the most basic of the Neato models, and the D7 is the most advanced.

The models also tend to increase in price from the D3 up to the D7.

For the most features and the best filtration system, and longest battery life – go the D6 or D7.

If a more basic model better suits what you are after, the D3 or D4 may be better options.

The D5 is somewhere in between, and is probably our pick for the best value and best performing of all the models (but this is just our opinion)



Overall, the Neato Connected Series (D3 through to D7) are good as high quality robo vac options.

However, there are also alternative option robo vacs to look at as well…
