"I have oriental rugs that have about a 4 inch fring on it. Will that interfere with the roombas performance?"
Works well and as advertised. Can not recognize black carpets. It shuts off on my black area carpet. Block off any areas you don't want it to go. You do have to clean it with every use to get the hair and debris off. I do recommend this purchase....

Love love my Roomba, I have had it for years still going, replace a few parts includind the battery! It is good for traffic areas and dies real well on wood flooring.Read More
I have 3 dogs of my own and often care for several others. The Roomba is programmed to go off every night after everyone is in bed. Every morning the vacuum cup is completely full of dog hair, dust, and dog dander. I have vacuumed thoroughly with my Dyson and then sent the Roomba into the same area. The Roomba always picks up more dirt and dust right over the areas cleaned by the Dyson. The Roomba's effectiveness is in part d/t the way it goes over and over the same areas. The dogs have never been bothered by the noises it makes which are far less intense than a vacuum cleaner's. When parts are needed (my Roomba is 8 years old) they are inexpensive and easy to access. I would highly recommend Roombas for everyone and in particular this model in part because of the handle in the top front. If you have pets you will definitely love them more when their hair isn't floating though your home like tumble weeds everytime you run out of time to vacuum. Let Roomba take care of nearly all of your floor cleaning. I was not paid or coerced in any way to write this review. I just love these robots.Read More
Apparently Roomba's have the shelf life of a *** lighter. It's great while it's still working though.Read More
I recently bought roomba and found out that the battery type from this refurbished unit is not the original Ni-MH or it called "yellow APS battery". It comes with Ni-CD or "black battery" which only lasts 40-50 mins operation time per charge. Roomba typically spend 20-25 min per room thus it can only clean 2 average rooms max out of this Ni-CD. The original battery Ni-MH is last upto 120 mins which is almost 3 time longer (meaning capable of cleaning 4-5 or even 6 room at one charge). This won't bother me much until I started using roomba and found out that my 3rd room never get clean since roomba will run out of power before reaching the 3rd room and next cycle it started from 1st and 2nd room again.Beside the Ni-CD battery costs $30-$40 and original Ni-MH battery costs $90 from irobot store meaning $50-$60 price difference. The brand new roomba 560 costs around $300 which is almost the same price of this refurbished unit with original yellow APS battery so I will think twice before buying another refurbished roomba. I gave 3 star for this reason.Read More
Between an un-landscaped yard, two kids, a border collie with a shedding problem, and a cat, I could vacuum my house every day and still be behind. We have acres of dark hardwood floors that show EVERYTHING. At least now there's a chance it won't look disgusting! Even my husband who considered this a complete waste of money and was at first insistent that I send it back, now looks at the full dust bin on the thing every day and admits its not so bad (yeah - he's not the one who'd have to vacuum, anyway). The first day I had her, I sat on the stairs with a Gin and Tonic in hand and watched her clean the living room. I named her "Madge". I love her.Read More
Pretty accurate description compared to others reviews. The rollers need to be cleaned more often if vacuuming an area with alot of hair (human/pet). Sometimes has trouble finding its docking station. Overall, a great machine, has definitely made life easier, especially during the holidays!!!Read More
I like my Roomba. I do have a couple of reality checks, though. Roomba is not a replacement for your old vacuum cleaner. You'll still need to get the places it can't reach. Roomba is not a maid service. Because my long hair and my cat I have to track it down and clean it's brushes about once a cycle even with setting it to vacuum daily. If you clean your floors well before you start using Roomba, it will keep things looking nice with little to no effort on your part. Just remember to empty the waste bin and clean the brushes some time before the next cycle. Vacuuming is my most hated housecleaning chore. My Roomba has made my life much easier. I'd especially recommend it to anyone who has physical limitations that make vacuuming difficult and/or painful.Read More
Does an excellent job of cleaning. Easy to program and maintain. So nice to come home each day to a freshly vacuumed home - just like having a maid.Read More
