Why did I wait so long? That sums it up best for me. I should be a salesperson for Roomba. Every person that enters my house not only hears me rave how awesome it is, they also get a demonstration! I know 3 of my friends have purchased one since seeing mine in action.....thinking I should be getting a cut of these sales iRobot executives!!!!!

I'M A HERO!! I've been married for 25 years and I know, I know that you are not supposed to buy practical gifts for your husband, but last Christmas, I was completely stumped as to what to get him. I read the reviews for these cleaners and they were almost all glowing. I decided to try it and guess what, MY husband LOVES IT!

I love Neato. I purchased the one for pet and allergy to cut down on the dust. What a difference it makes. I would highly recommend this product. It's amazing to watch it run.

This vacuum has super suction! I have been pleasantly surprised. I have owned this iclebo for 4 months now and in the many times that I have emptied the dust bin I have found: (Cereal, Staples, Dry Cat food, and even Dimes) However the strength can also reek havoc with loose cords, shoe strings, and even long carpet fiber. Be warned and take the few extra minutes to straighten out those types of things! I don't typically enjoy vacuuming. Who really does I guess. This iclebo has helped greatly and cut my vacuum time spent.

This is good for a light, occasional vacuum. Does not always pick up the dirt particles in between the grouts in the tile floors, and definitely will not even operate on a thick rug. Gets hung up quite frequently too underneath furniture pieces with short legs and also on extension cords that you might run underneath a couch, or across the room. Has a very small dust receptacle that fills up quickly also so you definitely have to clean it after every cycle, lest you run the risk of the thing possibly not picking up all the new dirt and debris the next time it runs.Overall, it does a pretty decent job for what it's expected to do....that is...light cleaning and light maintenance. I programmed mine to run every day, especially in the kitchen, and it helps with me not having to stress about doing a full on vacuuming job every week if I cannot get to it. Now the house looks pretty good all the time but without the extra effort of keeping up with the regular every day sweeping and regular weekly vacuuming.

Love my Roomba!! It even stops when it gets caught in my computer cords. Only negative: it does not like my small shag area rug on my carpet.

I started a new job recently that's over an hour from home. My floors were being really neglected, and it was stressing me out to no end. I'd made fun of these little gadgets in the past but was finally willing to give ones shpt. I did quite a bit of research and specifically selected this one because of the programming feature. Overall, this was an amazing purchase. Does it do as good of a job as i could with my full size? Probably not. The difference is that I don't have time to run the big guy every day, but I can use this one daily. That makes a huge difference. This little guy also gets in places my big one can't (or at least not easily), gliding under the bed and couch. Because of this, I've noticed a pretty big improvement in my allergies. My only complaint is that I could have saved the money and bought the slightly cheaper model since i never use the programming feature. We have a coffee table with a round metal base, and the Roomba climbs up on it and gets stuck (sometimes leaving ugly gauges in the metal... Thank goodness it's supposed to look distressed anyway, otherwise I'd be pretty upset). In order to resolve it, I have to wrap blankets around the base so that Roomba "thinks" it's taller than it is and doesn't try to roll roll over it. That's kind of a pain, so I generally run it while I'm getting ready in the morning or at night when I'm cooking dinner or reading. It's not a terrible amount of noise when you're watching TV, but it can get on your nerves. Glad to have been able to buy this on Overstock! Price is about the same as other places, but with a coupon, my O Club rewards, and the shipping discount, I got a pretty great deal!

I'm giving this 5 stars. I have two cats and a dog. I'm 79. I haven't the energy to run the vacuum cleaner daily, even though I've got an excellent Seba. I can't afford to hire a cleaner oftener than once a month. So I thought I'd give the Arte a try, even though I was doubtful. So doubtful that I let it sit for a month in its shipping box before I finally got it out, studied the manual, and gave it a try. I am amazed! At first, I ran it every day, then every other day, now every 2-3 days. At first the dirt container was packed full with all manner of dirt. But now there's very little. This Arte has really cleaned my rug thoroughly, all 5 rooms plus the bathroom (and the carpetted deck when I let it). I feel much more comfortable walking around my apartment. (I now take off my shoes as soon as I bring the dog in from his walk, and walk around in socks or slippers, so as not to track in dirt and leaves from outside.) I would give the Arte 5 stars but for the nuisance of having to clean the brushes every time; they collect lots of tangled dog and cat hair as well as acrylic carpet fluff (the worst!). It takes me a good 10-15 minutes to clean them thoroughly. I'm afraid I'm damaging the brushes and wonder how long before I'll need to replace them. By the way, I wash the dirt container and the filter (but not the brushes) under the kitchen tap, and let it air dry before putting it back in the machine. Anyone know if that's harmful? Oh, another nuisance although unavoidable: picking up all the pet toys and electric cords lying on the carpet, then putting them back afterwards. One final thing: Arte does its work so cheerfully, never complains, doesn't mind being told to go back over an area again, and I am grateful for the Sound noise that tell me what's wrong when the Arte suddenly stops, because it's trapped somewhere and can't get out, or its brushes need cleaning, or whatever.

Roomba is great to assist with keeping my hardwood and tile floors looking decent in between cleanings. The patterns are not precise so Roomba misses some spots but does a fantastic job overall. I can't wait to purchase another for upstairs.

I love my Arte (Rosie). This is Wicked. Fantastic for picking up dust, dirt and dog hair, assuming, of course, that the dog hair is short. (I have two pit bulls, and their hair is very short.). The battery goes on for hours, and the new version (compared to POP) is much more intelligent than the last. Highly recommended.

COMPLETE JUNK!! Do NOT waste your money. I do not have this unit, but purchased the Neato XV. I bought one from Sam's Club in February of 2014, used it about 3 times and it won't even power on. It's been on the charger everyday. I called about the warranty, which states it's for one year and they told me I have to purchase a new battery. The Rep stated that if you don't use it twice a week they will die and YOU have to purchase new ones, even while under warranty! Obviously they don't honor their warranty! If you buy this make sure you purchase the warranty. I've seen people all over the web with the same issue!

Its a great vac. once you set on a schedule it works great. But it will get stuck on shoe strings!

I love my vacuum: it cleans the floors more regularly than I would on my own (though it leaves a little dust by the walls, which is easily fixed - though one of their more expensive models has a side brush for this), and its cute (when you bump it from its charger, it waddles back and forth toward it). After it has run, my hardwood floor looks noticeably shiny (not from polishing, just from picking up a half-week of dust and dirt). The vacuum does take some wear and tear after 2 years, and is slowly having more difficulty finding its charger port (solution: run it more often). It got something in one of its wheels and asurion took care of it quickly (they have a fast return). My only real issue with the product is that the battery connection has become loose. If I pick it up and move it for a "house cleaning" of a different room, then it might just run for a minute and then think it needs charge. If it was a battery issue, then a mere **** would fix it. But sitting at the charger for a minute makes it realize it still has a full charge and it starts running again (in "house clean" mode); hence a loose connection. Asurion failed to fix it with the wheel, and I've now been waiting 2 weeks for my second UPS shipping label while playing phone tag with the technician who looked at it last time (I've been accidentally hung up on during a 5 minute hold, without a call back; I've left a message explaining the issue without a call back, etc). Asking me to call back once is fine, but 2 weeks...? It feels like Asurion is stalling until after my 2 year protection plan is expired, or that they have some sort of "1 repair per customer" policy. In summary, I recommend the product but not the protection plan. If you can find a good protection plan elsewhere, then it would go nicely with the aging of the product.

I've had my Neato for about 8 months and it works great. I run it twice a week in my upstairs rooms (bedrooms and bathrooms). I wouldnt run it unattended, though. Sometimes it will get stuck on a cord or the edge of a carpet and it needs to be moved. I use a vacuum to clean the hepa filter and that keeps it going longer.

There are a few pivotal moments in every person's life, and the day I got my Arte was one of them. I honestly don't feel it's an overstatement to say that this little guy changed my life forever. I liken it to getting a dishwasher for the first time. You still have to load and unload it, or in this case empty the bin and clean the brushes/filters, but oh my Lord the time you save is unbelievable. No more cat hair tumble weeds - my floors are straight up beautiful ALL THE TIME and all I have to do is press a button and dump the bin. Worth every penny.

I waited a while to take the giant step into the robtic vacuum world. wow! love this.it feels as if the whole house is just cleaner. having daily vacs done when we didnt get around to it more than weekly before has made such a difference. we have 3 dogs and a cat and plenty of hair. this thing is sort of like a little person...it is such a hard worker! we have area rugs, slate, wood, and travertine in the bath. I am diligent at cleaning brushes and emptying the bin daily. I move the clutter out f the way in the AM before we leave and it is set for 10AM. The dogs get out of its way but are less freaked than I had expected as I have a couple of pretty skittish dogs. the cat could not care less..my husband is totally sold on it and he was quite a skeptic.

I researched and debated buying this product for a couple of months before purchasing. I AM NOT DISAPPOINTED IN ANYWAY. I run it every day sometimes twice a day and the dirt chamber is always full of dirt, cat hair, bird feathers, bird dander, bird pellets and even my hair. My floors are so clean == I am so happy! I have one wall to wall carpet left in my home which I am planning to replace with laminate flooring. It is thick pile and pine green (dark carpets show everthing, lint, cat hair) its a nightmare. Well I never expected this little robot to clean it as well as a full size vacuum but IT DID!! I bought the warranty so no worries for at least 3 years. I am getting rid of my full size vacuums and keeping only this. I might even buy the Scooba to mop the floors. Waiting on that one for now. BUY THIS - YOU WONT BE SORRY. My floor cleaning days are over! I hope someday there really will be a Rosie the Robot for sale. Counting the days.

Product was wonderful for the 1st 3 months. After that it quit working. It is supposed to have a 1 year warranty, but I haven't had much luck with product support. After emailing a couple of times, they finally sent me a replacement part, which didn't make it work. Our emails went on for several months and I finally told them I wanted a working unit or my money back. They will not give me my money back, and if I want a refurbished unit, I have to pay the cost to send the product back. I don't think they would have offered a refurbished unit if I wouldn't have insisted. So hears the bottom line, it worked for 3 months, I purchased a brand new product and I can get a refurbished product if I am willing to pay the shipping cost!!!! DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!

I would recommend all people who have never tried irobot before to give i-robot a try. Not necessary this particular series, but just try to have a i-robot to do the regular vacumn for you. It doesn't deep clean your space, but it is good enough for regular maintainance. It saves you time and energy for family time, or sth else. For us, it saves us money too. We used to hire a cleaning company to come in every two weeks to do the vacumn plus others. But now the robot is doing most of the maintainance, i can have them come in once a month instead. That is a $100+ saving a month. Fran

What more could you want from a pet? the Arte is a very effective hunter of lint, hair, and other small bits of debris. Just last week my little "cleebo" caught an exceptionally large dust bunny!
