Summary: I really wanted to like it, and it was fun to play with, but it's actually more work than regular cleaning would be. Mop a floor and throw the rag in the washer vs prepare the room, then clean out all the junk from the brush and dirty water tanks and set it back to charge (and it can't clean more than a room or two without charging). This is still at the novelty/fun stage, and for that I recommend it (it is fun!
Summary: Is this worth the almost $500? No. Does it clean the floors? Yes. The Scooba 390 actually does a nice job of cleaning our floors. We only have tile floors, so perhaps that's biased. When we first got it, I always asked myself "Is this really worth it?" The answer is, it depends. (I know that isn't helpful). When using it to clean, we still need to move all the chairs and stuff in the way. If we were mopping in general, we would move these things anyway.
Summary: Where do I start with this horrible, horrible product? Well, my wife and I own a Roomba Pet Series vacuum, and absolutely love it. It helps keep our floors clean, and we actually haven't gotten out our dyson in MONTHS! So since my wife loves the Roomba so much, I decided I would surprise her with the Scooba for Christmas. She was SO excited, she said it was the best gift ever, since she wouldn't have to even think about mopping ever again. WELL, THINK AGAIN!!!
Summary: If you have had the privilege of witnessing the intelligence of a Neato brand house cleaning robot, the Scooba will frustrate you to the point of rage. It is so stupid I refuse to even call it a robot. i"Robot" need to step up their game. My Scooba has paint on it from aggressively bumping and grinding against walls and appliances. I wouldn't mind so much if all this bumping and grinding led to smarter little Scooba babies.
Summary: I love my Scooba floor scrubber! Easy to fill and drain. Scrubs until it cleans. Yes, there are some water spots but, hey I'm not doing the scrubbing so I don't mind taking dry mop and going over those drops!
Summary: Full disclosure - I have the roomba 780 and that is a fantastic machine. I LOVE IT! All my complaints are regarding the self navigation of this machine Irobot / roomba fully has the technology to make this machine navigate substantially better than it currently does. This machine ROUTINELY get stuck on hard floor to carpet transitions. It will get stuck every time. The methodology is uses to navigate actually make it get stuck worse.
Summary: First I would like to say that any review comparing the Scooba 390 and a vacuuming robot categorically should be dismissed since this is not a vacuuming robot. This is a floor scrubbing robot. You should use this robot after you have already vacuumed or swept your floors. I have an 1100 square foot single floor condo with hardwood floors, and my bathroom has concrete floor. There is one area rug in my living room.
Summary: Instantly quit working (one single application), making a sound that is not covered in the manual (up the scale and down again, plus all warning lights illuminating in sequence). No response whatever from my email to customer service. I plan on returning this useless object, and urge the manufacturer to clean up their act (using the competition's robotic floor washer, as theirs does not even pretend to work).
Summary: i have roomba 780 and i am overall happy with it... but for this scooba not happy at all... Sometimes it works (spry water and vacuum it) but leaves marks on the ground have to wipe after it... sometimes it spry water and doesn't vacuum it... sometime it vacuum and it doesn't spry water... leave price a side over all not worth using such technology it is still not ready...
