Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Basil Nice on lazy days but not quite perfect
This robot is easy to charge and use right out of the box. The directions were simple to follow and I was very excited to use it and watch it work. It is a lot quieter than a regular vacuum and picks up all of the dirt that it comes into contact with. The sound is loud but doesn't scare my child as much as the sound of regular vacuums.
All of these positives, and yet I find that it is not the perfect machine that it has been made out to be. The path that it follows is so completely random. Sometimes it will be moving forward in a straight line along a wall and then suddenly it will venture off to some other spot, just barely missing some lint in its original path. Sometimes it will go back to the spot it missed, other times not. I've noticed that it cleans smaller rooms, or rooms where a lot of space is taken up by big furniture, better than the bigger rooms with a lot of space.
In bigger rooms, I often have to pick it up and put it in a spot that it missed, which defeats the purpose of using this versus using a manual vacuum. I could leave this thing in a big room all day long, or until it stops for whatever reason, and it will still miss a few spots. So, while it would be nice to never have to vacuum again, I will stick to leaving this in smaller rooms and just clean the bigger ones myself.
I think it deserves about a 3.5/5.

I like my Roomba. It allows me to turn it on and do something else. Good purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MBWhales My Roomba is my new best friend!
I had checked out the reviews and features on this model and wanted one specifically for picking up dog hair (and people hair), with a hepa filter for allergens. This model has exceeded my expectations by a mile! I'd buy it again in a minute.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cricket LOVE my iRobot Roomba 770
I love my Roomba! It is on my list of favorite things! Overall this is a great product. I have a large great room with wood floor. I have the timer set for 10pm. I love waking up to a clean floor! I am still amazed at how much it picks up even though I use it every night. I have lived in this house since the beginning of September. The previous owner had a white dog. The Roomba is still picking up white dog hair even though I have never seen one piece of hair other than in the Roomba.
I think it does better with short area rugs like I have in my kitchen, dining and living area. I have ran it on my thicker carpet, but I think it is quicker to run your regular vacuum which gets deeper in the carpet anyway.
I think it works best in square or rectangular spaces without a bunch of chair or table legs to go around. But it does a great job at maneuvering the chair and table legs. It just lasts longer if it doesn't have to do all that work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VinceM25 Better than a regular vacuum
We had this device for 3 days and it cleaned the whole house very good. It even works better than a regular vacuum cleaner and you can see the brush marks on the carpet when it cleans it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wess Great Product!
This iRobot Roomba 770 has performed exceptionally well. With two greyhounds that live with us in our very large master bedroom we used to vacuum the bedroom every day. Even though they are short haired dogs they still shed every day. Now we simply press the button once and the Robot does the job, virtually eliminating the daily vacuuming. The Robot takes its place automatically and all we do is empty the drawer. We also check the HEPA filters (very easy to change if necessary) and clean the brushes as necessary about once a week. It has eliminated a lot of work. We might even get another one for the rest of the house.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lumus We love our Wacky Vac!
This has been one of the better purchases for 2015 for sure. We both have lower back issues so even if it doesn't save time, (as we have to sit and watch it, making sure it doesn't get hung up in cords, large area rugs, beneath recliners, etc) it still beats having to vacuum. You do have to clean it regularly with the tools it came with and really after each room to get the full cleaning benefit. Our allergies have been MUCH better too. It has preserved our energy to clean the bathrooms and dust so I would highly recommend it. It still lacks the perfection of learning to navigate the whole house before the battery gets weak but maybe the top model does that. We started using the boundary sensors so that we can allow Wacky Vac to concentrate on a couple of rooms a day, rotating areas throughout the week. Other than that, it's so awesome to come home to a much cleaner house, all the way around.
