Rated 1 out of 5 by Nemo Product does not last
I have been using the SpotBotfor about 6 months. In that time the hose has split open (because it has too sharp a bend in the storage position). In addition, three of the four housing screws have cracked, which has exposed the electrical components when I pick it up off teh floor. I have had to glue the housing screw bosses twice so far.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Hecdog Leaks and leaves a round spot
We bought this at Target and although it is very easy and convenient to use, it leaves a 7" round spot and leaks.
When we placed it over a small stain, we used it "set-in Stain" button and it went to work for about 3-5 minutes, scrubbing, spraying and vacuuming at preset intervals. Once it was finished, we removed the machine and found a 7" circle that was VERY wet. Once it dried, after more than 1 full day, it left a dry and dark stain on our light-colored carpet. We had cleaned 4 different spot, and all 4 had dark circles.
In addition to this, when we used the hand wand to spot clean we found that when we were done, dirty water had leaked out of the brushes below the machine. So then we had a second area to clean, the stains left by the machine itself.
SO, although we find this machine more convenient than our larger cleaner, its auto settings can create stains, and its wand causes the machine to leak.
