Summary: does what it says on the box, great thats programmable, Pro - programable - effort less (apart from inital moving toys out of the way etc) - kids love it. - cleans minor items cons - sometimes gets stuck on objects - misses items (have to set it going twice - wont clean like a hoover - cant do the corners. - cleaning the hairs and dust a bit icky - triggers alarm I do like it, but the price was a bit expensive for what it is.
Summary: I wasn't expecting this machine to be as good as a "normal" vacuum cleaner but in many ways it's better. I have a tiled kitchen floor and the Roomba does an excellent job, even finding its way into corners with its little revolving brush. Nonetheless, one has to be realistic about its abilities. It does not pick up sweet wrappers, pen tops and other bits and pieces dropped by children as they pass through, so some judicious pre-cleaning needs to be done.
Summary: i have had cheaper robot hoovers, This works great and does the job. It is perfect for the laminate floors and short pile carpets it does not go back to charge when on low battery. does not like long hair.
Summary: This little machine has revolutionised my housework routine.I can switch it on when I go out and provided it doesn't get locked in anywhere by bumping the door shut the floors are relatively free from dog hair and dust when I come back. It is necessary to clean under low furniture once in a while with a conventional cleaner but for everyday once overs ,Tootsie has proved to be worth every penny.
Summary: I bought one of these based on reviews and whilst i was skeptical i was quite excited by the prospect of something to help me with the house work. The first few days I must say i was disappointed. It didn't do a very thorough clean and felt I'd wasted my money. However, I've now had it for about a month and slowly slowly it has become my "cleaning companion".
Summary: I now have a small collection of gadgets, countable on the fingers of one hand, that leave me thinking 'What a brilliant little device, why didn't I buy one of these before?'. The iRobot Roomba falls into that category. It's not a substitute for a traditional vacuum cleaner (eg it doesn't clean the stairs) but anything that cleans 80% of the floor and doesn't answer back is OK by me. Things got off to a bad start when it arrived with a faulty power unit.
Summary: I've had this for a week and I'm completely delighted and, indeed, captivated by it. It's a small rechargeable robot vacuum cleaner and will allow you to clean the flat areas of your house without (much) intervention. It works best with large empty rooms with light carpets and furniture. It takes between 30 and 60 minutes to clean a room using a semi-random walk and will return to its docking station when it's finished.
Summary: Drawn in by some of the very enthusiastic reviews I've seen, I bought one of these. I've had it for nearly a week, at the time of writing. The good: * it picks up a lot of stuff. Every time I let it clean up, it gets loads of dust and rubbish in its little bin. And that's with running it three times this week!
Summary: If you think this is going to be the end of all vacuuming forever more then I am afraid you are likely to be disappointed. It's not just the price tag that marks this out as a toy for rich people, it is also the fact that it most likes to deal with large open rooms with minimalist furniture.
