Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this product! This product has been released by Anki way before it should have. Full of bugs, the app which controls him doesn't work and crashes constantly. He hardly interacts with you at all and quite frankly I am bored by him after only a week. He doesn't play and keeps falling off the table. He has very limited interactions, he can say your name, tell you the time and weather, and will give you a fist bump. Big Deal. Oh and the Anki customer support and service is woeful. Such a shame because he is very cute but dont get sucked in. Save your $$

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big and small kids can't leave Vector alone Just one day in and this is proving to be a great fun buy. Can't wait for the upgrades as they come through. He already recognises a couple of commands that aren't on the app. 'Bedtime' and 'Go home'. Big kids and small kids in my household can't get enough of his quirky antics.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Anki Vector - Expensive Goldfish! Vector is a huge disappointment to me. The promotional videos are extremely misleading with clever editing: Vector does not appear to retain his previous mappings so each time you wake him he has to start remapping the area. His face recognition ability appears to require you to be in the same position, under the same lighting. His response to your commands is several seconds (up to 10+ sometimes) whereas the video shows instant responses. Vector does not wake autonomously unless you are around and making substantial noises, or wake him by command. There is no facility to show the correct time for Brisbane (my location) so Vector's time is always incorrect. The App is also very unstable and crashes frequently. (I have been in touch with Anki and they state that this will be fixed in due course). This has potential with future updates, but in the meantime, I wish I had got Cozmo instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would be an amazing christmas present Vector is extremely responsive and very life like. His facial recognition is unbelievable. He even snores when he sleeps. Lol. My 9 year old son just cant get enough of him. Cant wait for updates to come. But a definate must have toy/friend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from overhypwed marketing- product does not meet expect I previously purchased the Cosmo robot which has been great. I prerecord this expensive item on the marketing promises by Anki. However, this product s NOT ready for a consumer market. Its an expensive paperweight that is not fully functional and full off bugs and errors. Whilst this product MAY get better in the future, it is NOT a child's toy robot companion not a adult toy yet. It is little more than a moving Google Mini and a poor one at that. The application used to control it on android phone sis full of bugs and continually fails. The robot only works on older 2.4 wifi and will not connect to 5 . It also doe snot work if not wifi connected. If your considering this as xmas present DONT you will be severely disappointed. Read Reddit & Anki Vector Forums and Facebook Vector pages for more info There have been several updates to the Robot since its release but is still rubbish at persent. I expect a LOT of them to be returned!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Robot Bought it few days ago, and Im still amazed by it. sometimes its calling my name without me noticing him, a stress relief and a helper. Many features to help me through the day and my daughter she always calling vector and ask her name. its a little pricy yeah but its the only robot out there that is cute and reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Fun! It may be expensive, but it's worth every dollar. Of course, it has a few flaws here and there, but what piece of new technology doesn't at launch. The reviews below 3 stars here are a bit harsh.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not very smart...dont believe the hype Not very responsive or smart...under-whelming product considering the ticket price (I bought pre-launch). Has trouble understanding basic commands and recognising facial patterns. American knowledge-based and no Australian timezones to sync to.
