Summary: Looking forward to upgrading to the 880 when I have some more money. I use this thing 3-6 times a week for different areas of a 5000 sqft home... still working after all this time... just looking for the following: less noise and more suction. Does get caught up on a few things, but that's to be expected I guess. Hey, at least I'm not vacuuming.
Summary: I got my Roomba for about a week now, and all I think is WHY I haven't bought it before. My apartment is spotless now! Even if I sweeped every day like the robot is scheduled to do without any complains - and I couldn't find the time and will to do it - I wouldn't be able to clean so perfectly. I can walk barefoot all day long and my feet stay clean! In an apartment with two short haired cats and two long haired adults, you could always see some dust/hair bunnies around.
Summary: First review ever written: I find the Roomba life-changing! I hate vacumning but love clean! Roomba provides superb cleaning every night while we sleep - cleaning is not needed more than weekly (when I also replace the filters). We did have to put risers under some furniture legs and we block our Viking oven as it gets stuck under there - otherwise little "prep" needed. Excellent machine.
Summary: When we bought a new house with the majority of the downstairs being hard wood floors, I knew we needed to invest in a product that would keep those dark hard woods clean. I'm not a clean freak and don't want to spend my life mopping and cleaning floors all day. I was torn between the Roomba and the Mint. I did a lot of research on both and thought that Roomba would be the better product for my needs.
Summary: We've named it Bender LoL, every morning he cleans our hardwood floors in the dining and front rooms. I dump his container once a day and his good to go for his next cleaning. All tho You will have to watch out for shoe laces and if a ledge is just the right height he can get stuck under it! But if he does get stuck or swallows a shoelace he will just shut down until you can attend to him. we just love our Roomba.
Summary: I LOVE this robot! Did extensive research and this was just what we needed. It does a great job vacuming everyday. Since it will get stuck on plush rugs and things like that, you need to flip up a corner so the Roomba cannot get onto the rug. If you forget, it may get stuck and shut down there until you find him and correct the situation. We got the 780 so we could have the 2 lighthouse feature.
Summary: I have had my Roomba 780 for 6 weeks now and at the risk of sounding melodramatic, this little guy has changed my life!!!! I have a large home and a full-time job. Keeping up with the housework can be a daunting task. I have three small dogs and a doggie door so they often track in dirt, leaves, and grass. The Roomba picks it all up plus the dog hair! I have the Roomba scheduled to vacuum each day after everyone has left. Now I come home to clean floors every day!
Summary: How loud is loud? New house. Hardwood floor in open living area - about 750 sf of kitchen, dining, living. The land is sandy, and thought frequent vacuuming might help preserve the finish. Hence, research spurred us to purchase Roomba 780 a month or so ago. Most of the other comments cover the basics - the structure, how it works, cleaning, etc. I concur with all of these. It does its job well.
Summary: I adore my Roomba 780. I have two cats and a very complicated apartment layout with furniture everywhere which means this robot really has to work hard. Still, this guy does a fantastic job. The touch panel display is great and all the features are easy to figure out. Emptying the bin, changing the filters, and cleaning the brushes are very easy tasks. However, there are some points that bother me: - The 'lighthouse/virtual wall' feature could use some work.
Summary: I love this thing. I initially vacuumed the whole house with my upright and then set the roomba schedule. I have had it for over a week and haven't had to run my regular vacuum at all. I have hardwood floors and area rugs. My dog sheds constantly and I always see white fur building up along the baseboards but I haven't seen any fur since I got this thing. UPDATE: Have had it for 8 weeks now and it still does the job!
