Absolutely love me Roomba!

I absolutely love our Roomba. I am currently at work and my Roomba is vacuuming our first floor. We have two children, a small dog, and a 3000 sq. foot home. The first floor is all hard wood and tile, with area rugs here and there. The Roomba cleans our first floor very thoroughly in about 2 hours, without dying. The second floor which is only two bedrooms and a loft is all carpet and takes the Roomba about an hour. I love that I can work on cleaning other areas of the house; ie. dusting making beds, cleaning kitchen counters, dishes, etc. while the vacuuming is being done for me. Or I can even be at work and have the Roomba clean the entire first floor, since my Roomba is connected via App on my phone. The Roomba is not good on my large high pile Shag rug in my living room; however, I just put out the virtual wall and have my Roomba avoid the rug altogether. I then vacuum that rug at a later time, which isn't a huuge deal. Because this model is equipped with carper boost, it does a great job vacuuming all of the other area rugs in our home without a problem and gets them very clean. Another really nice thing about the Roomba is that it goes under all of the beds and furniture with legs and even makes an extra pass around all the edges of everything, which is amazing!! My home just feels so much cleaner knowing that there are no dust bunnies hiding under all of the furniture. My only regret is that I bought it right before the new i7 series robots were released (not knowing they were being released soon.) I would have loved the model that empties itself, or even the model that I can label rooms and tell the Robot to clean specific rooms, using the app.

The 980 is a waste of money

We bought the 980 because of the extra features available through the app (such as customizing passes and scheduling runs). Since it rarely if ever will connect to the app, the features aren't available.

I would buy this again.

I bought this Roomba 2 weeks ago and run it everyday. I have 4 dogs and 2 cats and it has made a big difference in the amount of fur in the house. The only downside is it is very noisy; can't run it if you want to watch TV. Also, the collection bin fills up quickly with the fur so I need to be home when I run it.

Does Not Work for Pet Hair

|

We bought this Roomba in anticipation of adopting a 2nd dog-- a fluffy border collie (just like on the Roomba commercials!), so we knew we'd need help keeping up with the dog hair. This Roomba is totally ineffective when it comes to picking up dog hair-- instead of sucking it into the bin, it creates little "yarns" of dog hair and leaves them all over the floor. We've tried multiple rounds of troubleshooting and even had our unit replaced, with no perceptible change. The only conclusion I had can come to is that this model does not work very well for picking up longer dog hair on carpet. Wish I had saved my money, as this vacuum is a total waste.

I should also note that this is the 2nd Roomba we have owned. Our first one has been going for ten years with great performance and no problems! Seems that the quality may have declined over time. Even though the newer 980 boasts more fancy high-tech features, it seems to have forgotten how to do the basic thing it was created to do: vacuum. Very disappointing.

I would definitely get this product!!!

Got this for my wife to lighten up her work load .
I absolutely think it did !
More time for her to do more around the house ..
Pool looks much cleaner .
Clothes don't sit on the dryer anymore there in the dresser , where they belong . No more warm beer, there in the fridge where they belong .
The machine is a bit loud , but I just turn up the TV. Life is so much more efficient. I love you Lola ........

I turn it on whenever I am leaving and 80-90 percent of time it successfully re-docks.
