The new Roomba 960 keeps going until the job is done, vacuuming an entire level of your home. iAdapt 2.0 Navigation with Visual Localization helps Roomba 960 to seamlessly and efficiently navigate an entire level of your home and keep track of its location. The New Roomba 960 runs continuously for up to 75 mins, then automatically recharges and resumes cleaning to complete the entire job. Using a high-efficiency cleaning pattern and a full suite of sensors, Roomba adapts to real world clutter and furniture for thorough coverage. It also uses its optical and acoustic sensors to detect high concentrations of dirt, dust, and pet hair, and then performs focused cleaning where it's needed most. The low-profile design allows Roomba to clean under most furniture and kickboards, so dirt has no place to hide. Cliff-detection sensors allow Roomba to avoid...
I own two of these because i have my house separated for areas my pets can and cant go. Have been going for two years now and anytime I have needed anything I robot customer service is next to none. I wouldn't buy from another company. Best quality product backed by great service.
I have had several Roombas and none of them worked consistently well. My latest purchase is the 980 but it rarely cleans the entire house without me restarting it. I had a 960 that did clean the whole house, but it often got stuck on a throw rug, or just died in the middle of a room. Customer service is great from iRobot, and they have replaced my Roomba when it did not work. When it works, its great.
I can't say enough about how much I am amazed by this vacuum daily. I wish I would've had it years ago. What's most impressive to me is you would think that after using it 5 days a week for the last 9 months that it would pick up less dust/dander, etc. But no, each time when it's done and I empty it-what it picks up is amazing. There's obviously so much stuff that carpet holds-my house feels the cleanest ever. And it's refreshing to know that under beds and dressers it's also clean. It's so amazing how smart these things are, mainly how when it's done it goes around the edge and doesn't miss a thing. It is loud, but I run it when I'm not home or on another floor-it's a vacuum what do you expect right? I have nothing negative to say about this cleaner. It's amazing and a life changer for me.
To clean my floors
I do like the app. Its easy to use and lets you know when your IRobot needs assistance. Also when your IRobot needs assistance it just stops, it doesn't keep running and take the chance of breaking. So sometimes you come home and it didn't finish the job. Because, it got caught on an item you forgot to put up. But the item and the IRobot are fine. It just needs a human to help it get going again. It sure is nice to have clean floors all the time. We also invested in the IRobot Brrava jet. So we set it to go off right after the IRobot vacuum. And if you are having guest or a situation where you dont want them to come on. You just adjust it on the app. Too easy!!!!
The product has made cleaning my apartment 10x better. This is because I know longer have to vacuum my apartment every weekend, essentially killing a restful weekend. I now only vacuum once or twice a month to pick up dirt and dog hair that is deep in the carpet and in all the books and crannies.
Only complaint I have is that dog hair gets stuck in between the dirt bin and the mouth of the machine. Minor inconvenience for a great product.
