Summary: Wanted a Roomba FOREVER. Finally ordered this model. Wasn't aware that it lacks the programming feature, but after a few days I didn't even care. I would never use it, and here why: Sometimes I leave soda cans etc on the floor in the living room or a bag of garbage by the front door, and not having the programming gives me time to pick everything up before I run the vacuum.
Summary: It ran for about 15 minutes and then quit. Unit is very loud while it did run. Customer service sent out rear wheel modules for me to change. I replaced them, did not work. Customer service is horrible. Returning this unit and getting my money back.
Summary: This is my 4th or 5th Roomba. They don't last forever but last longer if you really take good care of them - empty dirt bin often (after EVERY use & if large area, 2 or 3 times during use) & clean entire machine (brushes, etc.) after every few uses. And a Roomba doesn't totally replace vacuuming but is really essential for someone like me with major back problems. Regular vacuuming is really, really hard on my back, thus my love for my Roomba.
Roomba 630 may not be practical for smaller NYC sized apartment layouts.

Summary: I had high hopes for the Roomba 630 Vacuuming Pet Robot. I live in a modestly sized apartment in Brooklyn, with hardwood laminate floors, and 3 cats. No matter how much I use the hand vacuum, it is IMPOSSIBLE to keep the space clean. The air quality in NYC I feel plays a role, as well as the cats, of course. There is constantly pet hair, human hair, kitty litter, and dust built up on the floors.
Summary: Perhaps I should write a review after several weeks. I've only had this unit for two days. The first day it arrived, I read the Owner's Manual and set up the "Home Base". I set the Roomba on the floor, hit the DOCK button and it crawled right up on the base and charged. I let it charge overnight, per instructions. Next day I turned it loose in the living, dining and kitchen areas, which are like one giant room.
Summary: Length:: 2:54 Mins Hi guys. I've purchased the iRobot Roomba 630 about 2 months ago. So far I'm very happy with the product. So I've made the video to show it cleaning my kitchen area as a small demo. My kitchen measures 8 by 8 square feet and it takes about 10 minutes for the machine to finish the job. After I've had this robot, vacuuming has become so much fun and relaxing. I no longer have to put extra effort into these ever again. 1. Cleaning carpet, for sure. 2.
Summary: Just got my 630 in yesterday. Instead of just charging it up until the green light came on I did what the instructions said--I charged it over night. PROS and CONS time! 1. There is no doubt this unite is about two magnitudes quieter than my beloved Roomba red. (That's back when my roomba red came in at 149.99 cents.) 2. Moves much slower than my roomba red...that means it cleans the same area better. 3. Has a carrying handle--that's good!
