It cleaned beautifully, the carpets looked great! This thing would fill up with crud even after running the old vacuum. How wonderful, one less chore to do.
Until Christmas Day! So much for showing off the new gizmo! The brushes stopped turning that morning, and repeatedly gave a "clean Brushes" error message. After many attempts, and hours on the IRobot tech site, we established that the rollers indeed were not turning.
After the Holiday rush, I found time to do a little more research. After consulting several robot discussion forums, it appears the cleaning head modules have a high failure rate. Apparently IRobot has made a new design of the module about 2 months ago. After getting frustrated with email support, I called IRobot and they say they will ship me a new module within 10 days.
Okay, considering the above mentioned ordeal, 2 stars is being very generous, but I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt. However, IRobot and Amazon should not ship items known to be defective.
So, I'll wait 10 days for the new brush module. I should have returned the whole unit to Amazon, but figured I would get the same faulty design.
I'll update this review Once I receive the new part and let you know if it fixes the problem, and hopefully give it the 5 star review I want to give!
UPDATE - I got the new module after about 10 days! It was fairly easy to install if you are handy at all, just a few screws and your done. The new module came ready to install, with a new brush style and new rubber beater thingy. I now love my robot!Read more ›
The second Roomba was the Discovery model. This one worked a bit better but had a ways to go before successfully cleaning my house.
Finally, we received Gort. Gort is the iRoomba 532 model specifically designed to help clean homes with pets. We have three cats so this seemed like the perfect vac robot for us.
It was. The vacuum really does clean. Gort happily cleaned my low pile carpet. He then moved onto happily cleaning my laminate flooring. While cleaning Gort managed to not eat up the curtains (a problem with the previous models) and he managed to not chew up the power cords (another problem with previous older models).
It looks like Gort is going to perform as advertised. Sadly, Gort is going back in his box and getting wrapped for Christmas Day.
But you can bet Gort will be happily sweeping my house after Christmas has arrived.
I can't wait for Gort to join his brother Robby the Discovery robot. The two iRoombas will help keep my house clean.
Jan 4: Gort far outshines the others. He thoroughly cleans my laminate flooring. He thoroughly cleans my carpeting. He does not eat up the throw rugs or power cords. iRobot really came through with development on this model.
As with all technology there are usually improvements as research and development lead to better products. A good example was the purchase of our first TI computer. We thought it was really something until we bought our Apple IIe with a whole 128k RAM on board.Read more ›
Day one: I thought I'd picked up things pretty well, but Roomba promptly went under the bed and sucked up a soft cat toy that I didn't know was there. No problem. It stopped, told me to fix it (yes, it speaks to you) and I cleared it. Roomba happily resumed.
Day two: I know that this model has anti-tangle cord technology, and this is true for the average cord (lamps, etc). What I didn't count on was what I found when I breezed thru the family room and saw Roomba struggling to get away from my entertainment center. Upon further inspection, I found that Roomba had found the very thin, long wire from the Wii, which had wrapped around the wheels. Untangle the wire, and off Roomba went.
Day three: Set Roomba to work in the family room again. I didn't know that a dryer sheet had made its way under the couch. Roomba found it, however, and stopped and asked me to clear it. No problem after removal--Roomba was happy.
I think you get the idea. This is NOT meant to scare you away from Roomba. On the contrary--I'm glad that it stops and tells you that there's a problem instead of continuing until something breaks or it burns out its motor. Yes, he wants you to empty his bin every hour or two. Yes, he wants you to clean out his brushes every second room or so.Read more ›
