Product Description

The iRobot Roomba 532 Pet Series Vacuum Cleaning Robot make caring for a home with pets easier. The Pet Series robots come equipped with an extra set of easy to clean brushes, two interchangeable debris bins for trapping even more pet hair, kitty litter or dander and cleaning tools that ensure both sets of brushes remain free of debris for optimal performance. The high capacity sweeper bin holds three- and -a-half times more debris than the vacuum bin. Counter-rotating brushes reach deep into carpets to pull out pet hair, dander and more. Cleaning up to three standard-sized rooms on a single charge, it comes standard with two Virtual Walls that use infrared beams that creates and adjustable, invisible barrier that blocks Roomba from entering off-limit areas. When the cleaning is done, or the battery is running low, Roomba automatically locates and returns to its Home Base to dock and recharge. Roomba efficiently vacuums dirt, debris, pet hair, pet dander, dust, allergens and more from carpets and hard floors. Extra replacement filters ensure Roomba traps dust, pollen, pet dander and tiny particulate inside the bin. The Roomba 532 also includes iRobot's latest technological innovations, such as a light-touch bumper, stair sensing ability, advanced anti-tangle technology and the ability to transition from carpets to hard flooring with ease. Most pets are initially curious about Roomba but will quickly learn to ignore it-or even play with it. Special safety features help your pet safe: Stair-avoiding system, bump sensors and automatic shut-off so noses and paws won't be harmed if a curious pet flips Roomba over. You should run Roomba while you are at home for the first few cleaning cycles so your pet can get used to it. After that, you can let Roomba clean whether you're at home or on the go.

Bottom line, the unit works great so long as it is kept really clean.

It's amazing that this little robot cleans so much better than my regular vacuum.

I have two cats and a dog, and I am surprised at how much hair it picks up.

I received my Pet Roomba before Christmas and have been using it since. My house is a real test with 3 very long haired dogs inside most of the day. I run the Roomba every day to keep the hair down to a minimum and we've noticed the floors are much cleaner (even though I used to vacuum alot). However, if you buy this you should know that it requires frequent cleaning of the brushes, particularly the axle area where hair gets easily wrapped (pull off the end cap over the axle). By frequent I mean once or twice during the cleaning cycle. Otherwise, the brushes just stop moving leaving you with a cute robot that just drives around chasing the dogs! So this means you really should only run it when you are at home to keep it clean. I also have already cleaned the front wheel (just pops off - was really full of hair) and the side brush (unscrew the screw). Bottom line, the unit works great so long as it is kept really clean. I've got the cleaning down to a minute so it isn't too big of a deal. But if you think you are just going to run the Roomba and empty the dirt bin once in awhile, you should probably not buy it.

I received my Robot on December 15,2008, an early Christmas Present. Rather than wrapping it, I gave it to the Missus so we could use it so the house would be nice and clean for Christmas day entertaining.

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!

The iRobot Roomba vacuum cleaner is my Christmas present. I wanted it as I've always been fascinated with robots. We've owned several Roombas including the very first one. The first Roomba was an admirable effort but it didn't clean much. It was fun to watch run around the floor though.

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.

Today is day 7, and I couldn't love the Roomba 532 Pet Series more. Yes, I've read all of the warnings from others, and I'm prepared for the extra attention that Roomba sometimes requires. In fact, I would NOT recommend that anyone pay the extra money for the model that you can program to run on its own every day of the week. Roomba works best when you're around to watch over him. Here's why.

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.
