Not too good to be true! Mine is almost a year old!

Summary: I've been following the development of robot vacuum cleaners for several years, waiting for them to become reliable and cost effective enough to warrant getting one. After receiving some amazon vouchers for xmas 2011 and seeing that reviews were going up and prices were down within the realms of possibility I decided to take the gamble and get this model of Roomba as of all the reviews, across various sites, it seemed the best value on the market.
Summary: It communicates, it cleans and it finds its own way home...... this is the most fun you can have with a household appliance. It gets under sofas and to places where other hoovers - or people pushing them - can't reach. It cleans well, albeit in a rather random order & asks for your help when it gets stuck. You have to learn to be nice to it though, moving stuff of the floor that might upset it and cleaning it after every go (this is a minor pain).
Summary: This robot hoover is ideal for me. He goes on most days - not having the most powerful suction he is the 'little and often' sort of hoover - but because he just wanders round doing his thing without me having to be involved that's great! Not comparable to something like a Dyson, but very very convenient. He even manages both hard floors (wood and tile) and carpet, and carpets on hard floors. Just don't expect him to be like a Dyson.
Summary: Absolutely love this robot. Wish I had known about it before now. Love the fact you can leave it to get on with the cleaning and it will just park itself to recharge. Use it every day for general carpet and rug maintenance cleaning around the house. Just waiting for one to be invented that can do the stairs as well and I am in heaven!!
Summary: This miraculous machine looks like coming out of a "Star Wars" movie but in its case is precisely designed for the real world.So far the only negative point we can detect is that it looks so much as a living being that the pet dog follows it barking all the way during the cleaning course.About the mechanics endurance it's too early to give an opinion:so far so good.
