    I'm in my 40s, and really am not an athletic kind of guy these days. But when I saw this unit, I was intrigued by its design, and had heard of the 2017 model, which will have AI, Voice Commands, Recognition and more. It feels much safer than a hover board, and cooler looking than the scooters. I actually bought a German engineered handlebars kit with kickstand, and that's when I was like WOW!!! You can even get it online at the ninebot store. I would suggest you wait and check the price everyday. Never pay more than 799, and if you wait, it goes down to 599 fairly often, like for Veterans day, Cyber Monday, etc.. The German handlebars go up to chest level, and make the unit feel not only super safe, but extremely precise. The auto balancing feels good, and the miniBot Pro, in summary, feels safe and instills confidence in the rider. The 2017 model also will have a robot head and 2 robotic arms, with an awesome SDK and API. But that might be in the 5K cost range. It's considered the Pro, top of the line Segway, or Ninebot (Ninebot recently acquired Segway). The only advice I have is for safety reasons, as follows. - It can turn so fast while staying in the same place. It feels like doing 360s on a skateboard that only has one giant sphere tire under the middle of the board. So, don't get bucked off. - Curbs, uneven surfaces, etc... If you're going to attempt to go over them, you need to keep a steady speed, if you go to slow, you can get kicked off the device, and the bad part is, the device could continue to go, depending on which way the handlebars fall, so it could ride off without you or come back and clip you right in the ankles. I suggest you just be careful, and until you really understand the limitations, stop, get off of it and just walk over uneven surfaces. The German handlebars are awesome, however, the miniPro can no longer balance without a rider on it once the handlebar kit is installed because it is too heavy in One Direction, causing the center of gravity to be offset out of the bounds of the auto balance sensors. That's why you need to get the little kickstand, as it will allow it to stay in the same place, so you can work around the problem this way. If you don't upgrade the handlebars, then you steer using your knees, pushing them against the thing that looks like a little bike seat to the right or left. There are no brakes, you lean backwards slightly to slow down, stop, or drive in reverse. It can go 10Mph, up to 14 miles on a single charge. It weighs under 30 pounds, easy to pick up and walk with. It's 5 stars, it's totally awesome, and I'm going to follow this line of personal transportation vehicles into where it takes me.

    I ordered it for my son who is 12 and, of course, had to test it out. I took it out of the box and easily assembled the two parts. I downloaded the app and turned it on. The ninebot came to life with lights and beeps and I got on it (I am a spry 50 year old with not much fear). I assumed I would fall off and possibly break a hip. I stepped onto the Segway and did a little back and forth but quickly became accustomed to it. Now here is where I made a mistake. I didn't start the app and I didn't do the instructional riding course. Don't be like me! I took it outside and attempted to ride it, it would speed up and then slow way down which made it very difficult to ride. I tried several times and I thought it was not working properly or was too hard to ride. I took it back inside and then started the app. It makes you go through a short tutorial explaining the dos and don'ts and basic safety and operations of the Ninebot. After that it makes you perform several basic operations on the scooter (turns, forward, backward, rotate right and left 360 degrees) and then, lo and behold, it unlocks one level on the speed and you can ride faster. Then after you ride 2 kilometers it unlocks the full speed. It literally took about 20 minutes to go from never having ridden one of these to riding comfortably and doing all sorts of turns and spins. The only consistent problem is riding backwards and then turning sharply which threw me off a couple of times. I had to give it to my son for his birthday and I was concerned because he is not athletic or particularly coordinated. He too, mastered the thing in about twenty minutes. He experienced the same problem backing and turning quickly and getting thrown off but other than that he got it down very quickly. The Ninebot app has several cool options including limiting the speed, the aforementioned riding tutorial (which should be given to every first time rider), light control, speed control and, one of the best things...remote control. You can have your robot come to you so you never need to walk again (be careful on the remote control, the vehicle doesn't stop quickly and you may run it into furniture and then have your wife tell you "That's why we don't play with robot scooters in the house." In conclusion, the Segway Ninebot is well worth the money and easy to use. It almost seems intuitive and riding it is the closest thing to hovering I have ever experienced. If you can afford it (and Best Buy Card has 18 month interest free payments on it) get one, heck get two. That's what I am thinking about doing.

    More than a hoverboard, less than a Segway

    I bought this with the hopes of using it for a 4 mile roundtrip to work. I'm a reasonably fit adult and have skied for many years. I have also owned a Segway (full size). Pros: The quality is great! Premium build, high-quality design, and everything is just top notch. It honestly felt even better than I thought it would considering the price. It works well and is in an completely different league than any hoverboard I have ever seen. Bluetooth connection to phone is very cool, but not all that useful. Battery lasts a long time and it has plenty of power. Cons: Knee steering is not very confidence inspiring. But the worst part is that the tiny wheels really just don't permit this to be used on anything other than a very flat surface. Even a 1 inch bump can be disruptive and forget it over rough pavement and that rules it out for any real commuting. It is just not a Segway only smaller. If you are looking for a hoverboard, this gets 5 stars (only because I can't give 6). It is fantastic. If you are looking for a Segway at 1/5 the price though, this is not that. The small tire size and lack of handlebars make this very impractical for long trips unless the route is extremely smooth.

    Got mine during the 2016 Thanksgiving sale. Works as advertised. I’ve had the miniPRO for a month and have 90 miles on it. I had rented full sized Segways about 10 times so I was familiar with the concept. Easy to ride, easy to steer with my knees. My only learning curve was not hitting the knee tiller bar as I would step off the mini, but after a couple of days paying attention, it’s no longer a problem. If you feel you are having a stability problem, just step off, but do NOT grab the knee tiller. That will probably induce some unwanted motion. Just step off, take care of yourself, and let the mini self-stabilize. Most of my riding so far has been on bike/pedestrian paths at the beach (60% after dark). The customizable lights are great (I also wear a light on my helmet). The mini is small enough and light enough to easily transport in the trunk. I was surprised to find out from the supplied general instructions that I am too old to ride one. Although not necessary, using their Bluetooth app on a cell phone definitely enhances the experience. Gives you speed, range, odometer, and a whole bunch of other neat nerd stuff. At one tenth of the price of a full-size Segway, this is really a bargain!

    I was amazed when I saw the demo on the best buy site, took a gamble and made the purchase. Feel in love immediately! feel even more once I added the protection plan ' a little steep 200$' but it is sure worth it. this little Segway does turn some heads. the first thing people ask is if It will explode while charging? my response is No Way its a Segway not those things you see kids playing with on the street corners. the next question is how hard is it to drive? not at all once you follow the tutorial . the only downside is that I never want to walk anywhere , I just hop right on the minipro and I'm good to go! This thing is awesome it appears that I am the only person that has one. I encourage others to purchase a Segway minipro we are in the future and it is at our feet literally.

    My family owns two other hover boards before getting the miniPro. Without a doubt the miniPro is easier to use, especially if you want to go straight fast since you don't need to worry about making sure the two sides are even. The deck is one piece and you turn by using the knee arm. This makes it very easy to take turns. It's a well engineered product and with the app, you can connect to the miniPro and see various statistics and even control it remotely. It's more expensive than other hover boards but I feel you get what you pay for and it's worth the extra money. No worries with the battery exploding and burning your house down either. It's basically a mini Segway that is a lot cheaper and fun to use.

    Great Ninebot

    I order white color and it arrived defective. The self balancer system was bad. When you stand on it and ride like 3 miles per hour speed, the ninebot mini pro lean too much forward and backward and make you feel like you are going to fall and when you get off, it drops the center bar even it is powered on. I knew this is defective. This never happened with my 2 other ninebots mini pro. So I took it to bestbuy store and they had black color available so I replaced it. Works like a champ now. No problems. This is the third ninebot pro we have in the family. All three ninebots mini pro works perfectly. This electronic machine is so easy to ride and does not require learning curve. It is much better then dangerous hoverboards.

    The mini pro is a great product . The reason for a 4 and not a 5 star rating is as follows. I purchased 2 of these Segway mini pros as gifts for my wife and my daughter and did store pickup. However upon opening the packages on Christmas day I realised that one of them was a repackaged bestbuy store display unit (stated on the unit itself) and was repackaged without the accessories package, no charger etc. I was extremely disappointed and was only relieved because the other unit was brand new and had the charger which allowed me to charge them both. I would like to get the charger and accessories package for the other one. Can someone at Best Buy assist please?
