I also have the XV-11, purchased in March and it's been brilliant in my 700 sq ft, 2 bedroom apartment. And yes, it did initially terrify the cats... Now it's a source of entertainment. I have it on a daily schedule and it's only gotten stuck twice, both times due to my having moved furniture. I haven't experienced any other problems and it's lovely to come home to freshly vacuumed floors every day - best of all, NO cat hair tumbleweeds! Would recommend highly to any pet owner.

Another NYC apartment dweller here... I tend to introduce myself to likely looking neighbors and it's been a boon in my current building as well as my previous home to know and work with neighbors on building issues. Still friends with a couple of former neighbors. There's MeettheNeighbors.org, a crossover between the real and the virtual and ideal for the shy. (Developed by the same guy who created The Lunch Club). I also highly recommend EveryBlock.com neighbor blogs if available in your city. It's a good way to keep up on community activities and news and can lead to some real world meetings; in fact, I'm off now to the second neighbor meetup in my area this year, hosted by EveryBlock.
