This comparison is dedicated to two Neato robotics — Botvac D5 vs D7. They have such user-friendly features as Alexa/Google Assistant and Apple Watch compatibility, smart mapping, scheduled cleaning, and auto charge. Their D-shaped design is especially great for cleaning in difficult-to-reach places (like corners, for example). But the distinctions in the number of cleaning stages (D5 with 3 versus D7 with 4) or different brush rolls (the D5 is endowed with combo brush while the D7 is supplied with its advanced version — spiral combo brush) can play a decisive role when making a choice.
The D5 impresses with its strong suction power of 2000 Pa while the D7 produces average 1000 Pa. Despite having almost the same dimensions, comparing Neato D5 vs D7 in terms of their dustbin capacity, you will notice that the D5’s dustbin is 400 ml bigger than the D7’s.
If you are searching for a robotic cleaner that is able to cope with large areas, you will definitely like the D5 as it can cover the area of 4500 square feet (if we compare it to 1000 square feet of its competitor).
Both models work quietly. Actually, the TV sound easily mutes the noise produced by both of them. However, the D7 is a bit quieter, but the 2 dB difference isn't really audible (58 dB vs 60 dB).
Testing Neato D7 vs D5 on the carpet surface, it was hard for me to decide which one of them is better. Thanks to the great suction power, the D5 is definitely better in picking up long hair from the carpet. On the other hand, the D7 ensures a more thorough cleaning performance thanks to a spiral combo brush. It easily picks up sugar, for example.
The Neato D7 is better robot vacuum in this comparison. Check Neato D7 price
