First, about the price, it can be one of the most expensive robot vacuum cleaner on the market. You can have a similar robot vacuum at lower price such as Roomba or Neato Botvac.

Downside of Dyson 360 eye (regarding performances)
This robot vacuum is taller than most of the rivals such as Roomba or Botvac (it is 4.72 inches tall while Roomba is about 3.5” and Botvac is 3.9”). Will this a major problem? It depends on the user home situation. If you have some low-profile furniture, make sure the robot vacuum can go under there. With Dyson 360 eye, when tested on multiple types of furniture at home such as bed, table, chair,… it can work perfectly even it has a higher profile than others.

Is it relatively tangle-free? Is maintenance a hassle?
Answer: In all honesty.. any vacuum that has a “brush bar/roller” is going to experience some level of tangling, it’s a bit hard to avoid. In my experience the only motorized tool that is virtually tangle-proof is Dyson’s accessory strategically named the “TANGLE-FREE TURBINE TOOL” which is for their upright vacuum line.
Question: what is the different between this $999 and the earlier $1500 models?
Answer: Since this item is still in its early release stages, its not readily available at all times, even by the manufacturer. The $1500 models were likely the ones released in JAPAN back in October of 2015. There were also some people taking early pre-release orders before the “official” release here in the U.S.
