Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Louise Awesome little machine
I was a little skeptical at how well this would work but friends had told me I would be impressed. And am I ever! This little robot goes around the edges of everything and picks up dust and dirt fantastic. Used it 2 days after I thought my house had been thoroughly vacuumed and couldn't believe what it still picked up. Amazing to watch it travel around and get into all the spaces. Very simple to operate and maintain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarkDavis1960 Works exactly the way I wanted it to with fast ship from Home Depot
First, I'll point out that I was going to purchase this product elsewhere, but found the best price at Home Depot.
I have two dogs and live in a multi-story home that has carpet upstairs and tile and area rugs downstairs. The unit navigates everywhere with little interference from me. About once a week I'll move the dining room chairs out of the room to let it get free range of the room. However, it will work around the chair legs. It has no problem rolling up over our medium pile area rugs.
I love that it gets under the beds and behind sofas. It gets under the kick plates of the kitchen cupboards and refrigerator too. Prior to the Rumba, we vacuumed out house frequently, so I was shocked when I saw what this thing picked up. You would think we were pigs!!! I'm embarrassed to say to took 4 sessions in the Master Bedroom alone to get to a good baseline clean. I've heard some people say it's loud, and I would say it is not quiet. However, it is not nearly as loud as a traditional vacuum.
My cautionary note would be to go through your house and look at all your cords and cables. She (Hazel) works well around heavy cables but got caught up in some speaker wire on day 1. I picked up a few cable minders and problem solved.
We also purchased the optional remote control. It's handy to "mute" the noise in a hurry.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dlm Disappointing and not worth it
I was pretty disappointed with the Roomba, so much so, that I ended up returning it. I feel it's too expensive for how poorly it performed. I think the biggest disappointment was that it did NOT pick up dog hair off carpeted surfaces (it worked much better on hardwood floor and tile) and instead, would just leave them clumped up all over the room, so using a traditional vacuum was a must after Roomba finished... I also did not like/understand the navigation system it uses because sometimes it would work just fine, going from room to room, and other times it would beeline for the kitchen (we have open floor plan) and spend fair amount of time cleaning there, then roll into the dining/living room for 5 min and go back to the kitchen for some more vacuuming, only then to dock because the cycle ended. It would also roll past a clump of dust/hair multiple times without picking it up, and that wasn't just a one off. I felt like I had to supervise it and once it was done, more often than not there was still dust or hair on the floor left behind. In the short time we've had it we've experienced some battery issues, where after docking and charging for 15 hours it would start a new cycle, and then 20 min later would go back and dock because the battery was showing a needing to be charged. I think for the money, any of the Dyson machines are a MUCH better, except you need to do the work yourself, and like they say, if you need it done right, you gotta do it yourself! Lesson learned!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Michelle Cruz Cleaned house everyday!
While my house keeps cleaned I have more free time with my two cats and husband after the workday. It cleans perfectly and remove all pet hair from home. It has 3 cons in my opinion: 1) The robot scratches itself under some kind of furnitures 2) Sometimes, When there is lint fabric or human hair on the floor it holds on the brush and causes an error on the robot 3) It doensn't balance well the time between the rooms. I think it requires many pieces of virtual lighthouse and its so expensive in my opinion. I live in a big apartament and if I don't supervise the robot and use the virtual wall to guide de robot it takes much time on the living room and doesn't have enought battery to clean other rooms. Although this cons, i'm so proud of my iRobot because there is many pros.

This thing is great. Gets in places you cant reach with a regular vacuum. The only negative things I can say is it will get stuck from time to time and a little expensive. Other than that.....A+

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MntRose Why didn't I buy one earlier?
I love this roomba! I wish I had gotten one years ago. I have noticed people comment about it bumping into things and while my furniture is not high class, still I haven't noticed any dings or scratches on anything but my roomba. Otherwise works wonderfully!

Third robot I own. Better than ever. Scheduling is easy, cleans when away. Knows where to stop when something is stuck. Very sage low noise.
