    Small but very effective!

    I love my new little Flor mopping robot! It works very well. If your floors are especially soiled you'll need to redo it a few times, but then it's simple maintenance after that. Also the wet mop pads can be rinsed and reused many times before tossing. I also add a little swifter solution to the chamber along with the hot water. Works great! I love this much better than the Mint I also have. My floors have never been so clean! You'll love it!

    First, I have to admit I like things clean, not 'kind of clean' but CLEAN. One of this issues I had with this little machine was that I had to keep an eye on it so I could see exactly where it cleaned. Another issue was that I would rather have my floor scrubbed so I know more than just the surface dirt is coming off. In addition, I was not a fan of the smell of the cleaning pads that came with this gizmo--also not sure if they are pet friendly. I am back to good old elbow grease--scrubbing my floors on my hands and knees. Have to say, in terms of cleanliness, the floors are back to their 5 star rating.

    We got the iRobot mop for Christmas and we have had no issues the little thing has maintained our floors very well but the has been some hardship with that it has a small pad so it only mops 6 in lines at a time so it takes about 40 min to mop our great room it does do a good job maintaining floors but if there is stuck on grime your gonna have to clean that your self another thing that is not advertised there is no dock you have to place it down and press for it to mop unlike the vacuums

    It works great for daily mopping like a swiffer. It takes some time to run through a run since it does a triple pass, but it's not time I'm spending on the room. It's certainly not a person making sure every spot is scrubbed, but it's nice when my son eats dropped food from the floor to think, at least the floor was just mopped last night. It'd be nice if it could make it over a threshold so it wouldn't start in my kitchen, slip down into the dining room, then get lost trying to go back to its starting point because it can't get back up over the threshold lip separating the rooms.

    This little guy surprised me. All I did was sweep the kitchen then turned this fella loose. I appreciate the pattern it followed. Straight grid lines one direction, then the same pattern 90 degrees to that, then twice around the edges. Only had to refill the hot water once. I was pleasantly surprised how clean my floor was, and how dirty the cleaning pad was. I wouldn't have thought the floor was that dirty initially but this little droid found it all and removed it. Great buy!

    Cons: small, slow, and battery does not last long. I no longer have to mop twice a week. It does clean, however it takes a long time. I have an average kitchen/ hallway. It almost cleans it all, but then dies. Not sure if it every goes back to where it starts bc the battery dies before then. Not completely dissatisfied AND I didn't return it AND I still use it. Would I buy it again?... If it had some upgrades: bigger, longer battery life, easier way to purchase pads

    My husband bought this and I paid no attention to what he bought usually I will catch all the little tricks to buying these crazy little things it does do a good job but you can only buy the cleaning tools from the company and they only give you two sets of each type that you can use it would be a good idea if you could just go to the store and buy what you need for the thing or you can use your own products but you have to use theirs and it only works with theirs

    It can leave streak marks, meaning it doesn't clean as well as I expected. It does do the job though, but I was expecting it to be better. It replaces swifting in between mopping every other week. I was hoping it would replace mopping instead....hahaha. I guess I had high hopes for this one. It's not bad, but just not for me. I've read about other people in which it worked just fine for what they wanted. I would suggest buying it and testing it out to see if it is what you wanted. To each their own.

    You have to buy this knowing it's more of a "toy" than something that will "work" for you. I've only had it a few weeks and it worked perfectly the first week; the second week, not so good. I'll have to do more testing before I decide to contact iRobot. I should mention that if you choose to buy it, you must use only authentic iRobot accessories (i.e., mopping pads, etc.). If you don't this will void the warranty. As of now, I probably wouldn't recommend anybody purchasing this.

    We just installed a wood laminated floor in about 70% of the house and bought a Roomba to clean the loose stuff and the Braava to clean the tough stains and sticky stuff. Have had very good results with the moist and dry pads but poor experience with the wet pads - iRobot engineers note that it needs more refining . We run the Roomba about twice a week and the Braava comes out about once every two weeks. Still learning how to use virtual walls.

    I'm not going to knock this machine for what it is, it does what it is supposed to but the down side to it is that due to it's small size, you shouldn't expect a big job out of it. I did notice after awhile that the pad was saturated with water and was leaving tons of water behind but this was remedied by a quick wring of the pad. It's good for small bathrooms and maybe narrow hallways but the truth is that you shouldn't expect much more out of this unit. Good first try by iRobot on a Mop Bot.

    was leery of this machine at first, figured it would go all wonky once I started it up. but to my surprise it works great, you do have to put barriers up by your carpeting (I have an unusual kitchen, dining, foyer area that is tiled...has two openings) but it does a great job of cleaning the floor...even my dogs, who are afraid of vacuum cleaners are not in the least bit worried about this machine. it is small and can be stored in the closet when not in use, easy to use I am very thrilled with this little guy!

    I decided to purchase this vacuum to do spot cleaning here and there in my kitchen and bathrooms. Does a good job, but I don’t understand how the pads can be reusable if once washed, the smell goes away. Would like to know if you can use floor detergent or only water in this vacuum. I also wish It had wifi connection to be able to control it via the app like the Roomba’s

    A great solution between serious mopping

    We picked this up to do some light mopping on our hard wood floor after the robot vacuum is done. For that, it's worked great. Like the vacuum, it's small and short enough to get into corners and under furniture. It does sometimes leave small streaks and does not appear to know when it has run out of water, though usually at that point the pad is so soaked it doesn't matter. It's not a substitute for mopping by hand, but it's a good in-between solution.

    This is very convenient to have, certainly saves time from manually mopping my floors. I wouldn't say it necessarily replaces manual mopping or steaming. This has the same GPS technology as the other irobot vacuums/mops. It does of good job of scrubbing stubborn stains. I used to have an irobot scooba but that didn't do a very good job. The braava actually scrubs the floor like a swiffer. The pads are a bit expensive though. And the perimeter limitation can be constricting, but still worth it for the price.

    Great for what it's actually for, kitchen mopping

    As stated by manufacturer, good for mopping kitchen and small areas, this is not the robotic cleaner of your dreams. It does a good job, I recommend buying reusable pads otherwise it's too costly to run daily. Beware it has no recharging base and water must be added by you. A new version with automated charging and watering would be ideal, but it doesn't exist for consumer appliances yet.

    i nicknamed it squeege! :-) Its ok. It doesn't do a great job with sticky stuff like syrup but it does give the floor a nice little spritz & wipe. The biggest complaint I have is I have to fill it up 2 times to complete the kitchen and the kitchen is not that big. Also you have to really block where you don't want it to go. I've seen it run off my hardwood, over my small separator and on to the carpet.

    Grabbed the 380t and then later this 240 to clean smaller areas. Mainly using it right now to clean the floor mats that we put down for our baby moves around (she started crawling). Cleaned them very well and then we also tried on the tile floor. Would not recommend this for a larger area as we used it to clean a bigger area later and it took forever and also had to be recharged to finish the area. Does feel like it cleans much better then the 380t though.

    I bought this product to use in my home. It is approximately 2500 sqft with less than half being tile. My floors had not been mopped in quote some time so the first time using the device was underwhelming. I have since mopped the floors the traditional way and have been able to manage anything that gets on the tile with the robo-mop. It is capable of scrubbing up pet and toddler messes as well as just sweeping up any light debris.

    pretty good- but does not replace mopping

    The Roomba Mops pretty good and it's good for preventive type of cleaning but it will never replace hard friction and elbow grease with mopping. For example we have small kids with baby bottles and when drops of milk dry you can normally scratch them off your fingernail but the Roomba sometimes misses those. It's good if you already have a floor that is clean and want to keep it clean but don't count on it to turn a dirty floor to clean.
