and they will work just fine. These were both gifts
14 December 2014
Summary: I bought two of these, a year ago, last Christmas. They have performed as the manufacture states. Follow all the directions, and they will work just fine. These were both gifts, and one has worked harder than the other. The less worked one looks and functions like new. Except for the routine filter replacement, it has not had any parts replaced. The harder worked one functions great but has scuffs. It has been stuck a few times under furniture.
Summary: Very disappointed with it, but I am giving it 4 stars as the reason is mostly my fault. The thing has NO timer. Since when does a device with more than 3 wires not have a timer? Everything has a timer. Even things that don't need them have timers. I have a now dead 551 Roomba which does have a timer. I don't see the point of owning these things without one. The whole point is not to have to bother with the process of keeping a room clean.
Summary: Amazing performance on light dirt and cat hair. Seems to fill the bin even when my hardwoods look clean. It has gotten stuck only 3 times out of around 25 uses. Twice on the base of a standing fan, so I moved it. Once under the edge of my recliner.
Summary: I was sold on "it cleans under the bed". I have no pets and my bedroom carpet looked clean. Boy! was I in for a surprise. The iRobot was full of dust and hair after the cleaning. I love it and the only reason I gave it 4 stars is, I didn't care for the cleaning part. Because the hairs were wrapped around the moving parts (brushes etc) it took a while to clean and unlike a regular vacuum, you have to clean it after every use. Otherwise, I am very happy with my purchase.
Summary: This is one of my best investment! It does a better job than expected. Roomba goes on random pattern until eventually it clean all the area. For better performance provide enough time to be able to cover the whole area/room This version does not bring virtual walls but I used the base to limit the area. Charging base works as a smaller virtual wall in which the robot wont go beyond the charging base. My house have a black tile floor and the Roomba works without issues.
Summary: Disappointed with this product. It looks nice, I like the concept, but if you are committed to a Roomba, I'd look at the higher priced models. This one is pretty 'stupid' and ineffective. It bumbles around my apartment and tends to miss dirty spots. When it does find dirty spots, its hit or miss as to whether or not it'll actually clean it half decently. Wouldn't recommend.
Summary: It was a difficult decision... I read through a lot of forums and reviews. Initially I wanted the 780, but at the end I changed it to 620. The simpler - the user friendlier! All my expectations have been exceeded. I have now used it for 3 weeks (3-4 times per week). I have 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, 2 hallways). I live all doors open when I turn the "Duster" on.
