The first thing you notice with the DART is the noise. It is loud and hard to ignore. The changing of the pattern, squeaking plastic parts and loud gears are enough to drive a calm person insane. Our cats enjoyed it enough that we have endured the horrible sounds. It does have several speed settings but unless you cat is also a ninja, you will not need the higher settings. As other reviewers have mentioned, the slowest setting is actually too fast.
After a week of use, the DART began to shut off abrubtley. Most of the reviewers who had this problem returned it only to receive another item that failed. So, I decided to take the risk and repair it myself.
Remove the four philips screws on the bottom and you're in. First thing you will see are the cheapest, thinnest wires known to man. Seriously, I'm surprised this thing even lasted a week. On mine, the negative wire had detached from the battery compartment. On the negative lead, there was a large mound of solder, which was the source of weakness. So, not only are the components cheap and of poor quality, the product was also assembled in a shoddy way. Clean up and re-solder the wires and you should be back up and running. Our cats patiently waited and watched me as I repaired their favorite toy!
It was a quick fix but not one you should have to perform. The product is a great idea but the manufaturer compromised on too many things for me to recommend this product. (Unless you like do-it-yourself projects!)
* It's a little noisy, but that shouldn't matter since cats running full-speed after a laser is also anything but quiet. The cats don't seem to mind, so it's irrelevant.
* The multi-speed function is awesome! I didn't even realize it had multiple speeds until I opened it! My cats LOVE when it goes fast, so I bumped it to 4 and it was almost too fast for them!
* It occasionally pauses, allowing the cats to catch it or get a hang of where it is. This is actually important when playing with any animal, as it keeps them from feeling unfulfilled or frustrated. I was very impressed by this mechanic!
* The timer is awesome, letting it run for 20 minutes while I do school work or house work gives enough time for both cats to get completely worn down, and gives me enough time to have them out of my hair!
* It does NOT come with batteries, so I recommend getting rechargables so you don't go through a ton of money and waste on batteries.
5/5 I freaking love this thing! I'll come back and update this review as time goes on (probably including my cat's weight loss! lol).
When I would leave early in the morning, and it would still be dark, I would start this toy for him. I researched quite a bit before I found it, and this has a setting with a timer. You can choose 5, 10, 15, or 20 minutes, and then it will shut off. So I'd turn it on as I went out the door, and it would shut off by itself after 20 minutes. I would periodically turn it on for him when I was home also, and observe his behavior. He would try and play with it, sit down and watch it, maybe lay down, eat, but he would still keep an eye on. So I knew it was entertaining him even if he was not actively chasing it.
The unit has 4 speeds, and even the slowest speed is a bit fast. The unit does just spin around, but it will stop, turn a different way erratically go the other way, and back again.
On the top, notice that there are two half-circles (one shows the odd blips, and the other shows the 5,10,15,20). Pressing the blips will increase the speeds, as in the one blip is slowest, and six blips is super fast! Press the half circle with 5 one time, and the unit will run for 5 minutes. Press it twice and it will run for 10 minutes. Press it rapidly multiple times and you can see a little light above whichever selection it is at, so you can choose the one you want.
One option I wish the unit had was a 'constant on' option, and a a/c plug. With those, I could hook the unit up to a timer, and at 15 minute intervals, every so often I could have the unit go on to avoid boredom for my cat during vacations, or long workdays. When I was working those 12 hour shifts, it did little for me to turn the unit on for 20 minutes just as I was leaving. It might have been nice if I had been able to have the unit go on a couple of times a day in intervals. Perhaps the plug would get in the way of the cat's playing, but I could hide it under a throw rug.
It has been a few years now since I've bought it, and it still works great. My cat is not young, and as I said, even the slowest speed is too fast. I imagine the faster speeds, or even the slower one, would be great for a kitten! I do wish the slow speed was a little slower.
Over the time I've had the unit, the white color has discolored. I'm not terribly troubled by that.
The unit takes three AA batteries. When I used the unit daily, they did get utilized fairly quickly, but with occasional use, they do last longer.
I have read that cats get bored by the same toys. So, every so often I put away my cats toys, and put down different toys and rotate them out. This keeps them stimulated and they keep playing.
Thanks for taking the time to read my review. I hope you've found it helpful.
