I love this machine it did great the first day but then seemed to get confused so I had to downlead the software update from the website and that seemed to take care of the navigation problems and it was able to find it's way back to the home base. My house floors look cleaner.

Love this vacuum cleaner. I let it run during the day while I am busy working. It keeps the main areas dust free - I am happy with this purchase!

I had iRobot , was very happy till I got 9 beeps ... long story , it is the main problem in iRobots as I know now and it is hard to fix .... Well then saw online this vacuum robot , ordered it , delivery was very fast , the robot looks pretty much like iRobot but there are few unpleasant surprises : 1) it was said it feels stairs , it is not . It fall , parts and dust were everywhere around , however when I cleaned the mess and attached parts the robot worked fine ... 2) it is a bit higher than iRobot so it stuck under my couch and I had to move furniture to get it ...3) it cannot step on a carpet , just turns around , small rugs like bathroom rug is a big obstacle too... 4) if you have some wires on a floor , this vacuum will be on that spot forever ...till you will come for help . I miss my iRobot , still have hope to fix it some day , this new one I use only in my bedroom as it cleans dust under the bed ... Kids like this iTouchless it is fun to manipulate using remote control , it turns and moves where you want ... however my point was to leave this machine alone when we are not home ...

Every household with a super shedding dog needs a IRobot Roomba to help preserve the sanity of the homemaker. It's uncanny how well that little robot tidies up the place. At first, I used to work the robot every day; now I give it every other day off and am able to keep ahead of the rolling undercoat shedding. I love my dog and my Roomba!

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

I purchased this robot after having a roomba for a few years. The roomba never worked that great and finally died. I went without for a year, but having three dogs, one with long hair, I decided to shop for another. When I priced the roombas and also the neatos I couldn,t believe the prices. They all started at $300 ! When I saw this on overstock and read the reviews I decided to order it but also bought the 2 yr. warranty for $15. It works great, better than the roomba ever did. It will get stuck in certain places but you learn where they are and you block them off. It will run for 1-2 hours on one charge I am very happy especially since it cost 1/3 of the price of the other brands.

We have named him Spot. We have cats and we suffer from 'tumble-fluffs', those little puffs of fur that float and sail round the floor. Spot takes care of them for us. We have not used the schedule timer so I cannot speak to that. He does NOT cover the entire room, every square inch is not vacuumed so an upright is needed (at least in our home) periodically. He makes a pattern and is especially good at walls and edges.

my mom has the robo vacuum cleaner and we love it! We even named her. She is part of the family. I have hardwood floors and was hoping the mop would sweep everything up and then mop as well as the vacuum does. But I guess with us having 5 animals in the house a dust mop could not do the trick for what we needed. We will be purchasing the robo vacuum too. We just have to think of a good name for her.

We loved watching the Roomba map out the house as soon as we charged it up! Had no trouble recognizing stairs and rugs and even dropped the laptop cord it encountered. Roomba has some trouble with truly massive dust bunnies, but if you keep the tray cleaned and keep cords and clothes off the floor, it'll bump around till it gets most all of them. The corners are a bit difficult as well for this rotund dust muncher, but it does as well as I did with a bulky upright. If your previous vacuum had a lot of snouts and attachments for corners and windowsills, then hang on to it, because Roomba can't get to those well. Where it does excel is in keeping the floor dust and dirt free with nothing to do on your part except emptying the tray regularly, and getting underneath furniture and bathroom cabinets, where it's difficult to get a conventional vacuum to fit.

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.

I wish it weren't so expensive because I would buy everyone I love one of these. It is so nice to come home and the vacuuming is done. I have hardwood floors and area rugs and it cleans both well. I also love how close it will get to walls too. Great edge cleaning. It has had quite a workout as I have a new wool rug which has been shedding alot. I know it is getting the job done because everyday after work I empty the dust tray and it is full. It is not super loud so I don't even mind when it runs when I'm home. In fact, I like to see where it goes and how it tackles any transitions in flooring. Programming and self docking for recharging....fantastic!!!!Everything should be like my roomba. Worth every penny to me.

Yes, that's right..we named her after the Jetsons Robot housekeeper, Rosie. She works just as hard! We have two 70lb American Bulldogs and 1 55lb English Bulldog and Rosie allows us to stay on top of the constant fur balls!! Rosie is smart enough to spit out cables and any loose items on the floor. Even successfully maneuvered over and around the Christmas Tree Skirt! You'll still need to do a proper vacuum weekly, but this allows us to have guests over at a moments notice and not be embarrassed by any fur-tumbleweeds! Best gift to myself in YEARS!!!!

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.

What an unbelievable discovery! After a friend's recommendation, we purchased this particular model Roomba in an effort to handle the dust, sand, dirt & cat hair that accumulates daily in our rural, ranch house. Prior to the purchase, the day after vacuuming, the house was always covered with fine sand/dirt! The Roomba runs daily & leaves the house looking like the maid just left! Works on both hard floor surfaces & carpet, (although better on the hardwood & tile surfaces). I was worried that the waste bin wouldn't be largest enough for the level of sand brought in daily, but it handles it without a glitch (and we even take off our boots at the door)! If it can stand up to daily use at a cattle ranch, a normal house shouldn't even phase it!

I don't usually review products, and I am slightly hesitant to write this because I have only had this for a couple of weeks and so cannot address any long-term issues, but so far this is an amazing thing. I have three dogs. Not the kind that you take to the beauty parlour for grooming, but the ones that shed all of the time, all over the house. I have a doggie door, so generally the only thing more visible on the floor than the fur is the dirt. To compound this, my partner has COPD so the mess isn't just unsightly, it also impacts her ability to breathe. I bought one of these little robot vacuums about five years ago and used it in our bedroom several times a week. I thought it was well worth the price and bought this when it stopped working. The old one was good; this one is amazing. It is programmed to run twice a day, but it also has a "spot clean": command that I use intermittently. It generally fills its dust bin on the first floor but it gets everything in there. I manually relocate it to the upstairs some days and it has plenty of room for that. It charges itself when it needs to and I have not noticed any reduction in power level as of yet. It has no problem getting over thresholds and power cables that stopped my old robot. I sort of miss my remote control, but that's just because I like remote controls - I haven't needed it. It *will* get caught it long, light cords, so I check for dangling USB cables and shoe laces, and I fold the raveling fringe under one of our carpets. The regular length fringe on the others has not posed a problem. It may slow down or die in the near future; no idea. But the honeymoon has been fabulous.

The only drawback I have with the machine, is my cat. He follows machine arround and thinks its a toy for him. Other than that, it works as advertised.

Great machine, wish I could turn off the edge feature, it get stuck in the middle of a rug I have with black lines. Other than that, no problems.

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.

Extremely easy to set up & just left it to do its own thing & a really clean floor was the end result. A tad noisy but does what the package says
