Pros: Small, maneuvers excellently, great design, no supervision required, actually LEARNS your home layout.
Cons: The battery could last longer before needing a charge...
The Mint is a hard floor cleaner to which you attach pads (like Swiffer oads) to clean all hard surfaces in your home. It has a tiny vacuum feature to collect larger pieces if dirt, etc. into a little tray that you empty after each use.
We just converted from carpeted to wood floors and the amount of dirt and hair and general crap that collects on the wood floors is shocking. Sweeping and vacuuming daily didn't cut it, and there were always missed spots along the walls and under tables and such. Hubby brings home this darling little robot, which , if Apple made home cleaning products, this is what it would look like. I was skeptical, having had a Roomba in the past, I thought it would do "OK" but not glorious. Well, the Mint is run by the same GPS that is in the Cadillac Northstar - which means that it maps your floors in your home carefully, and actually seems to learn where to go and not go. It does an amazing job picking up all the stray hairs I shed, all the errant bird food (we have four birds) and all the general dirt that gets tracked in from outside. And BONUS, it keeps our birds amused for the entire time it runs ( about 15-20min) so we get to enjoy a "scream free" household while the mint does it's job. Sure, you can do the same thing yourself with a Swifferr or on your hands and knees with a damp cloth, but why do it when you can have your robot do it for you? And, I sue wouldn't be able to get under the bookcases and low tables like the Mint. The best part about it is that it gets the stuff that is lodged in the cracks of our hardwood floors. No more using old toothbrushes to get at the grit in the cracks! Great for hardwood, linoleum, tile, and concrete flooring.
