Have owned about a half dozen Roomba's over the years and a couple of Scoobas which where pretty good when I had hard floors.

Anyone have any experience with the Samsung Navibot S on carpet?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9y_I2XADKKs

I'd also like to know the dimensions of the docking station.

Thinking of having one sent over from AU: http://www.harveynorman.com.au/samsung-navibot-s-bagless-robot-vacuum-cleaner-with-docking-station-black.html

In case anyone else was interested, Navibot works pretty well on carpet.

Docking station measures (mm) 60Hx360Wx560D or 730D with 'carpet ramp' and manual recommends a clearance of 500mm either side and 1500mm in front however I've tested and doesn't really need any side clearance.

Tempting. This is what has put me off most robots is the emptying. Would be nice if the dock could plumb in and just send the dust directly away.
