I love this product!! We have wood and slate floors and two kittens. There is a good amount of hair from the kittens. The robot, we named it Dobby does a great job of picking this up. We run it on sweep but dampen the cloth before loading it on the pad and away it goes. The mopping cycle does a good job as well. We have stairs and Dobby senses them and goes around it. With the turbo charger we can clean the upstairs and downstairs in about 4 hours.Can't say enough good about this product.

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.

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.

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!

The motor is quiet while running. Extra Hepa filters provided free of cost. Remote control for hands free use. Tools are not necessary for part assembly, removal, or dustbin emptying. The design is durable hardened molded plastic but light weight. The brushes have soft hair so no scratching seems to occur. Suction works very well. Food particles, staples, pet hair, and of course dust all in the bin. The multitude of built in sensors keep it from slamming into my walls and furniture. This is one of the most user friendly products I've purchased in a long time.

I absolutely am satisfied with my purchase decision. First, I was shocked when the package arrived at my door four days after placing the order. That was fast. Although I loved my first one, this one has a lot of improvements. As a vacuum, it will shock you with how well it picks things up off of a carpet. I have four rescue dogs, three poms and an alaskan eskimo, all long hair, and this machine deals well with that. With the "fences" it can be targeted to a room and a hallway or whatever and it covers 100%. Battery life is good and it recharges quicker than claimed. This one is much easier to clean out than the older one and all the instructions were spot on. I love the thing and would recommend it to anyone. Works as well on tile and hardwood as the carpets. This is one happier buyer, for a change!

Prepare your home before you use the Arte as instructed by iClebo in the manual, trust me on this one. With the iclebo’s brush turning power it will wrap up cords in the main brush and you’ll get crazy error codes. Help your Arte and it will help you! The Arte could use more manual settings if you happen to miss-place the remote. The mop attachment is fine for small spills but it won’t replace your traditional mop or wet swifter. Quiet motor during operation. Battery seems to have lasting power. Timed during max cleaning for over 1 hour and 30 minutes no problems. Much lower height then what I thought. Got easily under my sofa and back. Dust bin removes quick and easy with very little effort for fast emptying and replacing. Comes with extra filters to last you a few months that was a pleasant surprise. I would recommend this product.

Vacuum does not have enough suction to clean rugs and carpets well. Gets stuck quite a bit. It does a fair job on bare floors, but I gotten better results with other robotic vacuums. Thought I would try this product because it combined some the best features of the irobot and neato vacuums and reviews that mentioned its quiet operation. It is quiet; but that is only because it seems to be more of a sweeper than a vacuum. Returned to Overstock.

Nice cleaner. I wish it were easier to push around, like a robot. I am happy with this product.

A large percent of the time, I have to babysit this robot. It gets stock in some areas, it runs out of batteries, etc. It is moody. Unfortunately, I don't have the time and patients. It did broke about 3 times within 6 months, but the manufacturer replace it with a brand new robot right away. Excellent customer service from the manufacturer.

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

Robot get hung up on wires and other obstacles. It also does not map and cover room very well. Not great at picking up dirt particles. Would recommend this brand. Have another brand for mopping and it is great. Don't waste your money.

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.

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!!!!

This Arte really helps to keep the dust and pet hair down to a manageable level in our home. It works well on both carpet and tile and picks up virtually everything. Cons: It does get stuck in several places. Maybe in the future there will be a robot that can remember where it should avoid. The noise level is acceptable; somewhat quieter than our vacuum, but then it runs for a longer time. I was hoping to use it at night while we slept, but it's a little too loud for us. Cleaning: Removing the pet hair is not a fun chore and I find myself avoiding it in pretty much the same way I avoided vacuuming! The difference is that it really only takes about 10 minutes to maintain the iCLEBO Arte after each use and my floors are much much cleaner.

Seriously. My floors have never been cleaner. I have all wood floors on the first level of my home - and a kitten who sheds a lot. I buy the ******** dry and wet cloths to use with it. Of course it gets stuck on wires - it's a robot. If you were swiffering yourself - YOU'D GET STUCK ON WIRES! Anything that drags on the floor will if there are, in fact, wires resting on the floor. Luckily, there's an easy solution - take care of your wires! Don't blame it on the robot. I did just that (I have three lamps on a sofa table, so I taped the wires to the back of the cabinet. Now the Braava goes right under the couch. Let's face it - you probably almost never clean under your couch, because that would involve getting down to some crazy angle or moving the couch, neither of which is fun. Who wants to waste time cleaning floors anyway? That's why Braava is amazing. Charges quickly. Battery lasts forever. We do two dry mop cycles and then two wet mop cycles and it typically is almost dead by the end. Just pop on a cloth, set it down, place the cube somewhere pointing into the room and press the button. Braava takes off working hard while you go make yourself a martini. When she's done, she'll play a little tune and head back to where she started. Can't recommend enough.

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.

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.

This product is Fantastic for picking up dust, dirt and short dog hair. I have a poodle mix. The battery lasts for about 2 hours and recharges quickly in about the same time. The mop feature is descent for quick spill clean ups and dust mopping. It's something I don't use to often but still nice to have it as a possibility. Remote big plus. Light weight, durable, and simple brush removal for cleaning. Robot vacuums are new for me and this was a big surprise at how well it works for being such a small vacuum.
