Not quite reliable

A. Perego, Amazon
29 January 2015
  • Summary: The Scooba model 230 works reasonably well to clean floors, but it is not reliable at all. I own 2 Roomba 581, 2 Scooba 390 (in different apartments) and a Scooba 230. I'm quite impressed by the reliability of my Roomba robots. In 4+ years of use no one of them ever had problems. One of them even survived the cleaning of a floor where a large amount of water was spilt. I had only to replace the battery of one of them.

Parquet robot

12 October 2014
  • Summary: I have different kind of floor in my house - oak parquet, tile, carpet. This small robot is good for parquet only in my opinion. I'm afraid to run my old big scooba on my oak floor because it will make it too wet. My old scooba is very good on tile though. So, I like this little robot. I wish I could charge its battery externally so I can have always ready to go spare battery like on my old scooba.

  • Summary: Not the person but the product is poor. After a very short amount of time although it still ran fine it did not do anywhere near as good as when I just used a mop.

  • Summary: he has a few faults, but for my small apartment, he works great. The only complaint is that once or twice in my bathroom he lost traction on the 1" x 1" tile floor.

Works well for me on tile and vinyl

A. Meyer "Lover of books", Amazon
9 July 2014
  • 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.
