-Obviously cleans so you don't have to.
-Picks up lots of stuff from the carpet/tile/vinyl
-**Cleans under places i haven't seen since i moved in.
-Cheap at $200 considering what this thing actually does.
-Doesn't self dock for recharging like other robots.
-Doesn't perform well in high traffic areas.
-NiCd battery may provide the power this thing needs but come on! its 2010, this thing should have lithium batteries. NiCd wears out fast, its heavy, they are a battery that has a great memory(BAD thing!, remember to always store roomba with no charge and never half charge the battery).
All in all im happy with its performance, but you should never expect miracles.
I was so happy with the performance of my Roomba i cleaned it and took it back to target where i was given a full refund (love target!).Read more ›
Unfortunately after 5 months it stopped working. I contacted customer service who were really slow and would email every couple of days to get me to try different ways of getting it to work. I would email them right back to let them know that hadn't worked and then wait a couple more days to get another suggestion. After a couple of weeks of that they sent me a new one. It worked for a couple of months then the battery failed. We replaced the battery and since then it's been very hit and miss. We've replaced the battery again but it goes through spells when it doesn't work, then inexplicably works again for a while. You get so used to not sweeping or vacuuming manually that when you have to do it it feels like a huge imposition!
While it's worked I have absolutely loved it and can't believe that everyone doesn't have one. I would honestly say it saves me about 3 or 4 hours a week. I just really wish it had worked better for longer. That said I am absolutely going to get a new one soon!
We have three level home and it's nice to have the entire house vacuumed on one level and not really have to do anything. You need to remove any area rugs, I just roll them up and put them all in one area of the house. I also make sure that cords are picked up out of the way and that low areas are blocked. This one runs a little nosier than the old one, but, it still does the job. I do use the two blockers that came with the Roomba when needed, but, usually I let it run free rein on our main living level.
On a full charge Roomba will vacuum the entire living floor. Living room, powder room, front hall, dining room, kitchen, family room. It's about an hour, so I usually am on another floor while it's working. I've also just sat and read a book while it works. It doesn't get the corners in the kitchen really well, but, hey, if that's all I have to vacuum with the hand-held, then I'll take it. We have a three year old that lives with us, so, crumbs and other great things are always on the floor. I run it on the upper level on a full charge as well. Master bedroom, bathroom and closet as well as guest room and hallway. Other rooms are closed off. I really could do it on a half-charge. I always charge it fully before using it. It's usually about an hour or two before the charge is completed.
When I clean it out, before each use, I use a small air compressor and blow out all the dust as well as clean the filter and dust catcher pocket. I use the tool packed with it for cleaning the brushes.Read more ›
