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. a remote would be very handy
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I bought my Roomba 560 in 2008, thinking it might be a novel thing to have around the house, and might help with the daily sweeping up, after my pet Dog, and Parrot (they're worse than teenagers!!).
Incredibly frustrating but I couldn't do without it!

Summary: I've had the Roomba about 1 1/2 years. Plus points: * It does the hoovering for you!! This for me is a big bonus because it's a job I hate. * It doesn't fall down the stairs - it's still amusing to watch it head right up to the edge though.
Summary: We purchased this machine after seeing it in use in a B&B we stayed at on holiday. We were surprised at how much dust the Roomba removed on the first clean in each room - even though we thought we had kept the carpets properly cleaned with our Panasonic upright vacuum cleaner.
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.
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.
Summary: Really fun bit of kit but I wouldn't get rid of my other vacuums just in case a speedy clean up is necessary. It moves easily from hard floors to rugs and carpets and does a good job, although my long-haired cat causes it some trouble sometimes with fur clogging the brushes.
