Summary: Just the thing for open floor plans without doors. While my vaccum shipped with two I really couldn't plan and control a week's vacuuming until I got two more units. Now it's as easy as flipping a switch between Virtual Wall and Lighthouse mode on a couple of units to easily control where the next...
Summary: "This is it," I thought. "The answer to all my life's problems!" Turns out the Roomba isn't exactly a magic robot. It's pretty cool and does essentially what it's supposed to do, but it won't solve everything. It's a quirky little thing. Believe me.
Summary: I love this robot! I have a dog that sheds and this little guy keeps my floors spic n span. Only problem is that I have to remember to not leave stuff on the floor, or move things he can tip over otherwise Wall-e (we named him) tries to sweep it up and gets it stuck in his gears.
Summary: It's very good for maintenance purposes, but certainly cannot replace your upright or canister vacuum cleaners. If you have a large area that needs serious cleaning, like dogs hair under the couch, the iRobot can be very inefficient, in the way that the dust bin is too small and for a 300 sf room...
Summary: I LOVE THIS THING! Now that we got that out of the way, there are a few things about this that almost made me return it. First of, we put this on our main level. The main level has our kitchen (which is hard wood), and dinning room/Family room (Carpet). We have 2 pets (cat and dog).
Summary: Even with numerous friends that swear by their Roomba, I was still skeptical. How could this little machine really clean enough to impress me? When I received it I was really surprised at the size of it, much smaller than I had imagined.
Summary: We recently purchased these items and installed them in our 770 series Roomba. Thus far, they seem to work well and haven't caused any problems with the proper running of the unit. That's all I can ask for.
