Don't waste your money!

Scot A Beaird, Amazon
5 August 2014
  • Summary: After owning a Scooba 230 for just 8 months, the bladder failed, not sure what that means, but it will ot longer hold water. After spending $270 on the unit, customer support has offered me $50 towards the purchase of a new 450 Scooba value priced at just $599. Sorry, I don't see any value there. Why would I trust that the new unit won't fail? Sorry but I can not afford to be your R&D lab. It's back to the mop bucket for me.

Works well for me on tile and vinyl

A. Meyer "Lover of books", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this used through Amazon. Sounds like a lot of iRobot products are buggy, but I've had two successfully purchases or used devices (iRobot Scooba 230 and a Roomba) through highly rated third-party sellers. I run the Roomba first, then the Scooba. Used on both vinyl flooring and tile and had no problems. Kicked up lint from the grout lines one time I used it, but I just waited until the floor dried and ran the Roomba through again.

iRobot replacing my Scooba 230

Alan Chao, Amazon
24 June 2014
  • Summary: Problems: I received my Scooba 230 just one week ago, and since then I had never gotten it to successfully run through a cleaning cycle without it stopping, and giving me an error (error code 1), despite nothing appearing to be wrong. Oddly waiting a few hours and trying again was the only thing that would make it work again, but only for a few minutes...then again the error would occur.

  • Summary: I have had nothing but issues with this machine. I actually am looking into returning it. It doesn't stay charged long enough to do a full room.

It Doesn't work well

TsungYing Lee, Amazon
19 May 2014
  • Summary: The iRobot is having issues negotiating with the air vents I have on the floor. It tends to get caught on it and then proceeds to drip and leave puddles of water right next to the vent itself. It also have some issues with cat litter, instead of cleaning it up, it smeared it all around the floor, which made a bigger mess that I had to clean up separately.

works on 3 different tile types very well

John W, Amazon
23 April 2014
  • Summary: This little guy does a great job on all of my tile floors which all very on space between tiles. Some reviewers stated their's would get stuck in between tiles but mine has no problems at all. It also gets under the cabinet overhang for basically edge to edge cleaning. I have to say it cleans better than I thought it would in my kitchen so my wife and I are pretty happy with it. I have a back problem so items like this improve my day.

  • Summary: These pads are the ones sold by irobot at a cheaper price. I buy theses buy the bundle, because I clean my kitchen and two bathrooms in my apt and then replace with a new pad for a fresh clean next time.

Simple yet thourough

Andre Eddins, Amazon
7 April 2014
  • Summary: I recieved my iRobot 230 and immediately plugged it into the charger, after a overnight charge I let it run and man was I impressed. I have two 10X14 rooms and a long narrow alley for my kitchen/bathroom. This little guy can cover every room in my apartment twice before finally being done.

Arrived Used.

Katharine, Amazon
24 March 2014
  • Summary: I was really looking forward to the arrival of the Scooba. We were hoping to use it, along with our Neato vacuum to keep our small kitchen floor clean. So, we got the package from Amazon, and opened it. Inside was a boxed Scooba. Unfortunately, it was very obvious that the product was not new, was not even a refurbished unit playing new, it was just plain used.

I regret purchasing the Scooba

Dot, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: I sent Mr. Scooba to the e-waste facility after many battles to get it to work properly. It could not finish a small bathroom without running out of batteries and recharging took half a day. I replaced the battery and charger but did not notice any improvement in performance. In addition, the Scooba could not handle the slightly curved tile pieces where the wall tile meets the bathroom floor. It would get stuck. It also scuffed up my cabinets and pedestal sink.
