  missing part

Works fine but beware if you find any missing parts the supplier and manufacturers play cat and mouse games and then you get the "send it back with the original wrapping and contents" and send it back to france at your own cost. I ended up making my own replacement part.

Great little robot, took about 2 hours to put together, although I did take my time. Robot is sturdy once put together although I found a lot of the bolts, even when fully tightened easily pulled out when putting the individual parts together which was frustrating.
Setting up with my pc was straight forward (using Vista), haven't tried controlling it via the internet yet.
The speaker is excellent and when music is played through sounds great although does distort at higher volumes which has to be expected.
My only concern is battery life due to the fact even after a full charge dropped to half way in about 5 mins, but I guess it's a little too early to tell yet as may take a few charge cycles to reach optimum capacity.
Overall a great little gadget more for over 18's than under, unless an adult is going to put it together and set it up.

I had a nightmare getting this to connect to my wireless access point using either WPA or WEP. In fact I had to disable security all together and now have to rely on mac filtering alone. I would think that new firmware may resolve some of these issues.

Also the novelty factor soon wares off and the lack of tilt on the camera is limiting. On the plus side the build quality is very good and for £200 there isn't much else on the market that offers as much and the auto parking is very clever.
