    Basic entry level robot vacuum

    Our first robo-vac. It's a basic vacuum, no virtual wall unit or other fancy expensive bells and whistles but it works pretty darn well. It doesn't get everything but then neither do I. I move the dining room chairs and block off areas with pillows and closed doors. We have a mix of pergo, carpet, and rugs and the roomba has no problems with our flooring. iRobot touts that one can use Alexa for voice control and scheduling but "The iRobot HOME App is designed for use on iOS devices running OS 10 or higher and Android devices running OS 5.0 or higher. It is not compatible with desktop operating systems, Windows Mobile OS or Kindle Fire OS." Not everyone a smartphone, or a smartphone that gets reception at home. Why only make the app for a phone???? Much more convenient for me to have an app that runs online or over the internet. So I can only use the manual version, turn it on and off. Some of the other robo-vacs have a remote one can use which would have worked better for us. iRobot recommends cleaning it after each use which we've found to be a good idea. We have to stop the roomba mid-cleaning to check and empty out the bin. We've only run roomba when we are home to watch that it doesn't get stuck, which it has not so far. I love it that roomba vacuums under our bed, which was always difficult for us to clean with our old vacuum. Watch YouTube videos for reviews and tips.

    My wife is a cat lover and any cat owner knows that with a cat comes litter. We have 3 cats and cat litter would literally be in every room of the house! I hated hearing the vacuum 5 times a day just to keep the floor clean of cat litter and fur. I would literally walk around the house and see balls of fur blow from the breeze of my footsteps. I bought this roomba as a gift to my wife with very low expectations. When I say it works amazing! It literally is my best friend! I really like how you can press clean using the app while you aren’t home. I know it takes about 1 hour to clean our apartment so most times I’ll have it cleaning before we even arrive home. The self charging is also a plus, don’t settle for any of the roombas that doesn’t have self charging. I forgot to mention it’s quiet compared to a conventional vacuum so I even have it running at night sometimes. Oh you better believe I’m getting my moneys worth! Lol Trust me it’s worth it. I will say that it will vacuum anything! So you will have to keep socks or small toys off the floor before cleaning because you do risk breaking the roomba. Do not hesitate! BUY THIS EQUIPMENT you will not regret it!

    Surpassed my expectations

    Let me start by saying I’ve wanted a Roomba for a few years, but the negative reviews (which I read first) had me thinking I should save my money. I fully expected to return this after a week. BUT this little bot is amazing! I wish I hadn’t waited and I’ve raved to everyone about it! I absolutely love it. We have cats, dogs and often fosters. My floor is never clean.. but now I pick up toys, and a few items, hit clean while I go out for a run with my big dogs. Once a week I drag my heavy dyson out and get behind or under places it can’t get. But this equates to your dishwasher, you still have to do pot and pans, but you never get mad at the dishwasher for the daily assistance. If I had to make a complaint, I’d say it only lasts about 1–1/2 hours per charge and you gotta empty and pull the roller out to remove hair every time for maintenance. But for a drastically improved clean house, I can handle those things without complaint.

    It does the job

    It works, but there are some caveats. First off, you'll need to schedule the thing to run while your at work or sleeping. Otherwise you're better off just vacuuming yourself. It does a pretty good job of cleaning medium soiled low pile carpets and wood floors. Now come the issues. It does seem to get snagged and stuck on pretty much anything it could get stuck on. Throw rugs, Christmas tree aprons, tight spaces, etc. This means it stalls out in the middle of your cleaning (which means no cleaning for the day and a fully drained robot). This model also does not map out your living space, so you're at the mercy of the robot driving around until it bounces into a wall or something and just randomly cleaning until it's about to die. If you can prevent it from getting stuck, it will dock and charge itself, but I haven't been able to get it to run for a full week without getting stuck at least once during the week. That's with cleaning up after the kids EVERY NIGHT so there's nothing for it to run into other than furniture.

    EXCELLENT JOB CLEANING

    This is the basic no-frills model # for the Robot vacuum - Model# 675. This is all you really need. The higher end model numbers on this line are extra which add a lot more to the price. This model # does NOT come with the laser border tower. The 690 does, but if you could close doors in your house, do you really need it? It cleans super well. I have the Shark Vac and the Deebot and this IRobot Roomba vacuum has more suction power in comparison. The ONLY negative would be that when it hits against furniture, it's not as soft as other brands. However, this brand is the ONLY brand of the 3 that actually has a DOCKING BUTTON, which, when pressed allows you to tell it to stop and return to Docking Station. I like that the buttons are on the unit itself so that you do NOT have to use an app or phone to start, and stop it. Very easy to use.

    I bought this vacuum for my mother who just had knee replacement surgery and needs help with vacuuming. I set up the app on her phone but she just presses the 'Clean' button the the top of the vacuum whenever she wants it to clean the house. It performs well and does a good job getting into the numerous areas she cannot reach: under furniture, behind the couch, etc. She absolutely loves the thing. Her house is a large ranch with a mix of carpet and linoleum which the Roomba copes with easily. Other than emptying the bin periodically she hasn't had to perform any maintenance. Her only complaint has been that it periodically gets stuck under furniture that has just the right height to trap the Roomba...it sort of gets wedged under the coffee table and the love seat somehow. Getting it out has been a bit of a challenge at times but its hardly enough to detract from the experience of owning it.

    Toy Eating Robot

    My wife has wanted this particular brand for a while but it was never really on my radar because we’ve owned similar products by brands who shall remain nameless that failed miserably. I finally caved and we bought this right after Christmas and it has been a blast. We learned that you can name it whatever you want for Alexa enabled devices so we named ours “Toy Eating Robot” so we can tell Alexa to turn on the vacuum and the kids panic and run around picking up their toys before the robot picks them up permanently. The only downside I have seen is when it attempts to go from a hard surface to a raised rug it sometimes thinks of it as a wall or obstacle and will vacuum around it. The battery life is great and the canister capacity has yet to slow it down even with pet hair and the random toy it picks up.

    I have scheduled Freda (my Roomba 675) to clean the house every morning at 8 am. When I get home from work I dump the tray and spend a couple of minutes (occasionally up to 10) cleaning out the brushes... every day. That is the life of having a German Shepard and a long haired cat. While she does keep the house noticeably cleaner on days she completes her work, Freda gets caught on a lot of shoelaces, stringy toys, cables, and rubber toys on the carpet and sometimes might not finish her work because of it. With that said, she still cleans my house more than I do, and for that, I thank her. If I had a few more dollars and with the knowledge I now have, I would have purchased the Roomba E5 which seems better suited for pet hair.

    Nice product to collect the small littering

    It runs fine to collect small littering and hairs, but it does not get along with floor mats, nor with chairs having a pipe at floor level parallel to it (see image), in cases like this the robot tries to climb the pipe and ends up not being able to go forward or backward, forcing you to help it. If in your house you have some furniture that have a compartment or hole that is exactly the same size of the robot, be sure that the robot will be hang on that spot at some time, this happens to me with the door of my refrigerator and with the under compartment of the showcase.

    This is the first Roomba I've ever purchased. So far the maintenance for this little guy is pretty high. The debris tray does not hold much at all, constantly cleaning that out after a completed job. Have to keep the sensors, filter, side brush and main vacuum brushes clean consistently or it does a subpar cleaning. This little bot does an average cleaning job even when everything is maintained properly. Still misses areas and edges but it does save you time from doing it yourself. Long lasting battery and good charging though.

    The sale price on this was too good to pass up. We were looking for an autonomous vacuum for the inlaws as they both work crazy long hours, so we wanted vacuuming to be one less thing they have to worry about doing. They have hardwood floors with lowpile rugs and then carpet upstairs. This model was what was reccomended for their variables. They are able to have it vacuum the hardwood main floors during the day while theyre at work and it will go back to its charging dock. Once they get home they can bring it upstairs to do the carpet while they make dinner on the main floor. To the best of my knowledge they havent complained so it must be doing the job it's meant to do. I'll be buying one for myself during the next sale.

    I have waited to purchase a roomba iRobot for at least 6 years because I couldn’t believe it could do as well of a job as a regular vacuum cleaner. Well, I am here to tell you that it actually gets into places I can’t with a regular vacuum!! I saw it go under my couch and to the other side and vacuumed a space I have not been able to reach in a long time. It does a great job sucking up dirt. I was so impressed I got a second one for upstairs. I am still testing it, but so far so good. I will ultimately use this as an adjunct to my regular vacuum, but this really cuts down on the work! Very pleased!

    I bought two of these. One for mom and one for me. We have a big house with an open floor plan. Wanted a vac that can clean up crumbs around dining table. We did not anticipate it would go all over the house rather do an area at a time. It picks up a lot but wanders around. Even in rooms, it doesn't go in one line but wanders diagnonally sometimes same path and hard to say it got all of the carpet. It never finished our room as a "job complete" battery went down before that. For my mom's smaller house, she's happy with it. I returned mine, She kept hers.

    I recently moved back in with my parents with my dog and cat, so in addition to my parents’ two cats, there are four animals and five humans under one roof. I was vacuuming several times a week in a two story house and working full time which was exhausting. ENTER THE ROOMBA. This little thing is a true lifesaver. It’s great for maintenance and picking up pet hair from the carpet. I pull out a real vacuum about once a month to get hair and dirt trapped deep in the carpet, but daily roomba activity keeps my house extremely clean and pet hair free. My only critique is it has a tough time finding the dock and takes a while to get there.

    I really got the Roomba out of curiosity more than anything. I half expected to take it back and get a traditional vacuum. Boy, was I wrong. Not only am I really happy with how this works. It's becoming a bit of an obsession. I work from home so I let the thing loose while I'm in my office. When I come out, I see the floors cleaned and carpets with that groomed look. On top of that, I empty the dirt container and it's so satisfying seeing what was picked up. It can't charge fast enough before I want to run it again.

    This is my first robot vacuum and I love him. I say "him" because he has a personality and I've named him Rudy. He works so hard sucking up debris through my house. I have him on a daily schedule to clean and it definitely reduces the need for me to sweep or dust. Rudy gets stuck on the cat toys and under the couch sometimes so I do need check for obstacles before I let him loose. But, that helps me keep the house nice and tidy. I recommend this product to anyone of the fence on whether the cost is worth it or not. Get one!

    OKAY so full disclosure I normally in my wildest dreams would never be able to afford this. But this year's Black Friday changed that. And let me tell you!!! I've been missing out. I see what the rave is about. I call him Monster as he is a bit loud but eats everything, and when I say everything he picks up all dirt and pet hair....as well as a few cords if they're in the way, BUT we usually try keep the floor clear of those so its mostly once in a blue moon. Overall GET THIS PRODUCT. It is a prayer answered.

    Good vacuum for first-pass cleaning

    This vacuum handles general clean-up very well on hard floors. It doesn't work as well on carpet. It takes quite a bit of time to thoroughly vacuum all areas of a room. It takes a pass at the same area several times but eventually hits all spots and even goes under furniture where the clearance is sufficient. If you want to vacuum several rooms you will need to charge it after an hour or so. Overall it helps to get the job done but you may still need to take another pass with your traditional vacuum in some cases.

    Spinner gets stuck

    So this isn’t a bad product however, the spinner/sweeper gets string or hair stuck and wrapped around it often. It also has the tendency to wedge itself underneath things. That being said, when you don’t have to rescue it, that thing works very well. We have two dogs and two kiddos that track dirt in often. I set “Robert Roomba” on a timer 7 days a week and he happily sings his I’m awake song and gets to work. Secure the base so he doesn’t move it around!

    Only had it set up for a few days, seems to work pretty good. Only issue is it gets hung up on cords and rugs sometimes, so we need to make some cord adjustments. Wifi capabilities are struggling. Wanted to put it in a certain area of our home and it would not connect, yet other wifi items connect in same place. It's not very loud and did not even phase either of our dogs as I was a little worried. Pattern is unusual to say the least, but it gets the job done. Buy one.
