Gets stuck under chairs a lot and takes a long time to clean a room

King Solomon, Amazon
2 July 2015
  • Summary: It does a good job cleaning if it doesn't get stuck under a chair. It will go over the same spots in the room many times. I've watched it clean carpets and under hard spots like a chair.

only moderately useful, VERY bad battery life

S&A, Amazon
22 October 2013
  • Summary: The biggest issue with this unit is that the battery life is, at best, one large room, after 3 months of using it three times per week. It picks up moderate dirt OK, not perfect, but for maintenance usage, ok. Battery is biggest Achilles heal on this product.

Beware of stiff brushes

TheWisdomCube, Amazon
23 March 2013
  • Summary: The filters are fine. However the 6 prong brushes are so stiff that my Roomba cannot transition from hardwood to rug anymore. The brushes get caught underneath the rug every time. This did not happen with the flexible 3-prong brushes that originally came with my Roomba.

You get what you pay for

Michael Marlatt, Amazon
27 February 2013
  • Summary: The 6-legged brushes did a better job than the iRobot brush on bare, hard floors but everything else about them was worse. It provided so much resistance against the brush motor while the Roomba was on carpet that it most often wouldn't turn at all.

Did I get a defected vacuum?

Y. Y. Chang, Amazon
11 February 2013
  • Summary: I really want to give it 5 stars but after using it for 5 months, I decided to return it but the seller I bought from wouldn't allow me to return. It worked fine at first and cleaned well. The only problem was it stops on my black patterned carpet all the time.

Overpriced, high maintenance, and doesn't do a good job with pet hair

Tara Jones, Amazon
11 February 2013
  • Summary: We have a golden-retriever type dog and when we bought a cat, we decided we needed a roomba to help us to keep up with the hair. We specifically went with this model because it is "pet friendly" and is suppose to do a better job picking up hair and not having it get caught up in the brushes.

I just gets stuck often.

Soclr, Amazon
11 February 2013
  • Summary: This Roomba constantly gets stuck under our coffee table and furniture. You let it run 5 minutes it gets stuck. You move it and it goes back and gets stuck in the same spot. I really feel that it is useless due to this. It also knocks over the pet water bowls and makes a mess.

Good and bad

Ryan Bulson, Amazon
11 February 2013
  • Summary: This seems to do a decent job on hard wood but is leaving scuff marks on my baseboard which is my biggest disappointment.
