Because I own a Kirby upright, I never expected this little thing to actually do a good job vacuuming my carpets.

I bought this remanufactured Rumba a few weeks ago (it is has already been returned) and was pretty impressed with the job it did. I know a lot of people are skeptical and I was too, but the unit was able to prove itself and is actually intertaining to watch it drive around the living room and bump into things. Ah... who needs TV?

In any case, the issue I had with mine was the battery life. I charged the unit for a long time twice (20 hours?) but the robot would not handle more than 25 minutes of continuous vacuuming. Both times it died in the middle of the room and I had to rush to rescue as it was making its SOS signals, which were annoying enough to interrupt the dinner.

On a side note, the unit is cool, but mine did look used, the surface was scratched and the buttons were worn off! Perhaps I got the worst of the bunch, but make sure you test the battery extensively when you get it!

I own a higher-end Roomba Discovery model, so will just compare Roombas versus regular vacuum cleaners.

Let's get the cons overwith. The Roomba is *the* most dusty vacuum cleaner I've had to clean out. While other vacuum cleaners have convenient dustbins and disposable bags, the Roomba requires you to both empty the dustbin and *clean* the brushes and filters. You definitely want to wear a mask when cleaning out a Roomba! Ironically, I also recommend another vacuum cleaner to help suck out the lint and such. The Roomba also will not do the pre-vacuum tidying up of stuff from the floor you normally do before and during vacuuming.

But, in my opinion, the benefits are well worth it. As a guy, I don't do a good job of vacuuming. (Okay, I admit it. I don't do vacuuming at all!) Compared to a conventional vacuum cleaner, the Roomba will go under low tables and other areas a conventional vacuum cleaner will not go.

I also highly recommend the docking station attachment, sold separately. If you leave your Roomba alone, you really won't know where to find it! It could be under the bed, behind a door, pretty much anywhere.

Finally, you should do your research. There are several Roomba fan sites on the internet, including discussion boards. You should find the right Roomba model for your needs.

I must have been lucky. Though I thought I purchased the Roomba Red, I actually got the Sage model which is (I believe) a step above the entry-level Red.

I am a believer! I got in on this deal in late September and got it delivered to my US address. I am currently in Saudi Arabia in an apartment with tiled floors and I went through the trouble of bringing this little beast all the way back from America. Boy, was it worth it! It's not even that big, it's amazing how something so tiny makes such a huge difference. I don't do any back-breaking labor any more, I just charge the Roomba and let it do its thing. It's so neat to watch it in action, it totally fascinates any visitors I have. This is something totally unique here, no one has seen anything like it so I have that added bonus of the 'wow' factor.

It does clean very well, however, at least in my case, the battery life is less than ideal (hence the four stars). So much so that my unit always has a red light on it at the end of the vacuuming cycle, though it manages to get the whole room. I think I have had the 'Mission Completed' indicator go on just once. For the most part it cleans the whole room but apparently not to its own satisfaction since it just stops with the battery low indicator. Looks like the battery lasts about 50 minutes. That's not perfect but I am not complaining since it works well enough.

I would highly recommend this. And for people who complain to you that 'you are too lazy to vacuum' tell the naysayers, it's not about that. It's about winning your quality of life back in the form of precious time. I would rather read a great book from Amazon than spend an hour vacuuming my apartment. Duh!

Because I own a Kirby upright, I never expected this little thing to actually do a good job vacuuming my carpets. We only bought it because my 4-year-old is obsessed with robots and begged! That's why we got the reconditioned one - we figured he would either take it apart or ride on it, and didn't want to pay full price for a new one! Not only is it a great vacuum, but the reconditioned one works as well as a new one.

When it first arrived, it had a very minor battery glitch, but an iRobot tech support person was able to tell me how to instantly solve it after only 5 minutes on the toll-free phone number. Otherwise it was perfect right out of the box. I'd say that's pretty good for a used product. Also, I've never spoken to a nicer, more patient tech-support person.

Even more amazing, my only real complaint about the Roomba is that it works TOO WELL. Even thought I regularly vacuum my house with my crazy-expensive Kirby, it has taken two full weeks of using the Roomba every day before I don't have to empty the dirt cup every 20 minutes. My carpets were that dirty and I didn't even know it. Roomba found dirt that I had no idea was hiding in the carpets and hard floors. Now I can let it run the full length of the battery without having to stop and empty the bin, but at first I was constantly emptying it simply because it was picking up so much dirt that my regular vacuum had left behind.

By the way, spend the extra money for the docking station. It is well worth it to let Roomba find its way back and charge on its own rather than try to track it down when the battery runs out.
