|I don't know about the latest models, but I read that the first ones weren't very efficient- they would miss spots and take a lot longer than just doing it yourself. It also can get confused with loose items like shoes on the floor. Reading reviews confirms this is still a problem- most people who have one still have to vacuum with a regular upright in the tricky spots.
Maybe get a bagged vac instead of a bagless? I only have to mess with changing the bag on mine about once a month (of vacuuming twice weekly) and haven't had to change the filter yet at all. It's really easy- just take out the bag, throw it in the trash, insert a new one. No loose dust. We have two big hairy dogs, no mudroom (so it's filthy around the doorways) and heat with a wood stove (so there is wood debris and ashes around the hearth) and I know I'd rather vacuum than sweep it up with a broom...
