A Great Piece of Equipment for the Price,

Pros: Strong suction, climbs walls, does the job well. Reliable after 2 years. Attractive design.
Cons: Occasionally tips over and gets stuck, the joints of the hoses crack.
"Being a new pool owner I did not have much experience with pool cleaning besides using the traditional stick with a cleaning head. I have had the MX6 for 2 summers now and it has greatly saved me time and effort to keep my pool clean. I have not spent the time to read the manual and see if i can make adjustments, but usually after an hour or two of cleaning it will manage to tip over and i have to get it back on its feet. Maybe i could keep a closer eye on the pressure and/or add the provided flotation to prevent this from happening. IDK or care. It also can get clogged up internally if you have broad leaves in your pool. The bottom line is that i believe that both of these issues are acceptable for the price and perhaps something that all pool cleaners would suffer to some extent. Probably the only thing that has really irritated me is the fact that the joints of the hoses where they connect have all busted and now can draw in air if their on the pool surface. I probably will buy new hose for it next season. I think it deserves a solid 4.5 out of 5 because of the fact that it is reliable and it does what it says it does."

Pretty Good Machine,

"This is our first automatic vacuum. I'm sure the more expensive ones work better, but this one works fine for us for the price. It took less than 15 minutes to get it into the pool doing its job. Used it 2-3 times per week for the entire summer. The first month it really seemed to do a great job. Now for whatever reason its not as powerful. I've done everything as instructed with my filter. It just doesn't work as well. It still cleans the pool fine though. You can leave it in all night long if you want to. The only other thing is that you have to pull your ladder out. The robot may bounce off of it, but the hose can get tangled. I am confident that even though its not super duper powerful. I we will be able to have a nice clean pool all next summer too."

Beats the electric cleaners hands down !,

Pros: Light, fast, simple to use, and very nice looking, and easy to clean
Cons: nothing yet, which is a good thing.It works just as it says it will.
"Have you ever researched competing products forever, and just can't make up your mind as to which one to spend your hard earned cash on ? Well, after all the research, I finally decided to get an electric cleaner. None of them got great reviews, but, after owning 2 Barracudas, which I had had no trouble w/what so ever, I thought I would take the leap.You see, even though I had NEVER had any problems w/the Barracudas, I didn't like the idea of running the entire pool system, just to run the cleaner. I was just about ready to put the Aqua Bot in my shopping cart, when I saw the MX-8, and watched the video. It looked just like the electric cleaners, but ran off of the pump, which I said I would never do again. I was confused AGAIN ! The thing was, the MX-8 was only 500 bucks, w/a $100.00 rebate, making it $400.00. Well, here we go again. It turns out it was one of the best decisions I had made in a long time. This thing is a work of art, and no, I'm not going overboard here. It has a new type locking hose, doesn't "Thump" as it's cleaning, and actually CLIMBS THE WALLS ! I just can't say enough good about this cleaner. If you decide to buy this unit, you will not be sorry! You can also buy a 2 year extended service plan for about 30 bucks, which I did. As always, it only took about 2 days to show up on my door step. In the swim has the fastest shipping I have ever seen. You will not regret buying this unit !"
