Summary: It's not as efficient as a real human, and misses things that real humans would miss; but if you don't want to be bothered with vacuuming or sweeping daily, it might be something to consider.

Be sure to to empty the bin after every use (easy peasy) and comb out the brushes too (bit more of a chore, if you have thick carpet and...

Summary: Lets first address the question that we all have asked ourself when contemplating the purchase of a robotic vacuum, "this thing can't actually work, can it?". The definitive answer, without a doubt, is YES IT CAN!!! This Roomba is awesome- plain and simple. Buy it. Just do it.
Excerpt: Roomba has made taking care of my hardwood floors so much easier! Before, I could sweep continuously and it would still be a little dusty. Now that I use the Roomba everyday the amount of dust and allergens has been drastically reduced. I also love using it on my carpets.
