This vacuum performs admirably, it is much quieter than I expected and is great to KEEP your house clean. If you are the type that fills the dirt bin in 10 minutes you probably should start with a leaf blower, then go to a shop vac and work down from there.
Wifi pairing was not difficult, If you don’t have any knowledge of pairing devices, then I would recommend you start with help from someone that is familiar with the technology or just start with a call to their tech support.
I read about docking problems, be patient and understand what has to happen for it to doc. It does not go directly to it’s home base, If you have some patience it will eventually find it. Don’t expect it to be quick.
This will not replace weekly vacuuming unless you are a very clean person with a small house or apartment. It is excellent for dog hair, If you have 8 dogs and 12 cats in the house, I would recommend you stay with a shop vac. Don’t rate the product poorly because the dirt bag is small, it is a poor reflection on you intelligence. Study before you buy, it will save you a lot of disappointment and it will save the rest of us a lot of time reading worthless reviews. I believe this product deserves a 5 star rating and I paid for it myself.
I have been using this Roomba for a few weeks now. First, I am leaving my rating at 4 stars. Here is why...
I did the dirt test and it came out just fine. The Roomba got all the dirt in the upstairs hallway. As a matter of fact it got the dirt in between the spindles on the banister. I was actually surprised by that.
It is remarkable how the spinning brush does not get long hair tangled up in it to the point it stops spinning. I don't know how they managed it, but if long hair gets caught it winds the hair up around the brush but doesn't impede the brush action. So no worries if you have long hair from humans or a pet, it will not block your brush head.
The other good thing is even though it has a crazy cleaning pattern, if you run it every day it will definitely keep your floors clean. We are a household of 4 - one being a toddler so you can imagine how much crumbs and such wind up on the floor. My floors have stayed clean every day since I have used this.
One thing I still do not understand is what a "dirt count" is. If anyone knows, please reply in the comments section.
What is not working well for me is it docking properly. To be fair I honestly believe it is because of my floor plan. By the time Roomba starts to get tired it's usually by the front door hallway. The shortest path would be to cut through the living room, but because it's a sunken living room. Roomba can't go that route, of course. It's not smart enough to know to go down the hallway through the family room and kitchen then dock in the dining room. So if you have even a semi difficult floor plan you might find a dead Roomba when you come home. Every now and again it finds its way back to the docking station though.
Just like Roomba I have gotten smarter with use. In the video you see Roomba has the hardest time with the area rug in the dining room, which is also where the docking station is. Well I got smart and turned on the virtual wall barrier in front of the rug. I no longer have an issue with Roomba getting caught up in the pattern on the rug. The only problem I am having with the virtual wall barrier is human error... I cannot tell you how many times I have turned it on and forgotten to turn it off which runs down the battery.
The last thing I want to mention is in my first review I suggested to watch my video to hear how quiet the Roomba was. I was shocked to hear how loud it was on my video. I assure you it is much quieter than what you hear on the video. I chalk it up to my cell phone having a great mic.
This is a comprehensive review of the iRobot Roomba 890 vacuum.
Out of the box this Roomba comes with:
- A filter already installed
- An extra filter
- A virtual wall barrier
- 2 AA batteries for the virtual wall barrier
- Warranty information
- It comes partially charged so you don’t have to wait to try it out
I have an Android phone so I used Play Store to install the iRobot app. Installation was simple, smooth and quick. I had to register my Roomba with my name and email address. It also allows you to name your Roomba. I guess this is good if you purchase more than one – maybe one for the upstairs and one for the downstairs.
To connect your Roomba to your Wi-Fi it must be connected to the docking station. I tried doing it without it being docked and it does not work that way. VERY IMPORTANT: this vacuum will NOT work with 5G Wi-Fi and the app tells you this in big red writing. I have dual band Wi-Fi in my home 5G and 2.4G. I tried it on the 5G just to see if maybe there is an update. No, it does not work on the 5G. When I switched my cell phone to the 2.4G and paired the vacuum, it connected right away.
From the app, you are able to engage the vacuum remotely and you are able to set a 7-day schedule so your floors are cleaned every day. There is also a lifetime performance log which logs the number of cleaning jobs, total job time and dirt detect count (I have no idea what that means). There is also a care section that tells and shows you how to clean the bin, core robot and debris extractors. You can even buy parts and accessories right from the app.
This Roomba has the perfect height to get under kitchen cabinets. I think it’s called a toe plate – the little indent under the edge of kitchen cabinets. The Roomba fits under there perfectly. It also fits under my couch and chairs with no issues.
I haven’t weighed it, but it is probably 5-7lbs. There is a handle on the top of the unit that lays flush when not in use. It makes carrying it very easy.
It takes 3 hours to get a full charge. The base nor the unit itself have an indicator light to tell you when it is fully charged. The only way I knew it was fully charged was because the app told me. While it was charging the lights on the top of the unit were green, so it’s safe to say when your Roomba is not lit up at all it means it’s fully charged.
A little surprise I got was that this unit talks to you using a woman’s voice that sounds pleasant and only slightly robotic. It spoke to me twice - once when it connected to the Wi-Fi and another time when it got stuck (more on that later in my review).
Under normal circumstances I would not sit and watch this machine work, but for the sake of a comprehensive review I did watch it. I am only slightly OCD, but after watching this vacuum operate I was full-blown OCD – it was almost unbearable to watch. There is absolutely no rhyme or reason as to the path/pattern this vacuum takes to clean.
I have attached a rather lengthy video so you can see part of what I suffered through watching this vacuum work. Besides the crazy cleaning pattern, the other thing I was afraid of was how it would “read” my area rug. If you can stand to watch the video you will see the pattern in my area rug really confused the Roomba. Many many times the vacuum got stuck in between the black lines of the area rug. This seems to be an issue with these types of floor cleaners since they have been invented. I would’ve hoped by now they would have found a way to overcome the issue and to also set up a cleaning pattern that makes sure all parts of a room are cleaned in a uniform manner.
Because of the crazy cleaning pattern and it not being able to ignore the pattern on my area rug I have removed 1 star from my rating.
Walls, Furniture and Steps:
Have no fear when it comes to bumping in to walls and furniture. This Roomba performed exceptionally well. When it bumped into walls and furniture it was so gentle that there is no way ever this will cause damage. There is a step-down from my dining room to the living room and every time the Roomba came near that drop off, without fail, the vacuum avoided falling down into the living room. Excellent performance in this area.
How Loud Is It:
If you listen to even a small portion of the video you can tell this vacuum is remarkably quiet. You will be hard pressed to find another vacuum that is this quiet. This is such a huge plus. You will not be disappointed in this area at all.
This is another area in which this unit excels. It transferred from my laminate floors to the area rug with no problem. It also mastered the threshold from the laminate floors in the dining room to the tile floors in the kitchen without a hiccup. I do not have an area rug with fringe so I cannot attest to how it works under those conditions.
How Effective Is It:
Barring the crazy cleaning pattern this vacuum uses, it does clean very well – eventually. I ran the vacuum for about 30 minutes straight out of the box before I docked it for full charge. At the end of the 30 minutes the dust bin was fairly full. Surprisingly it got a lot of deep down dirt. In anticipation of delivery of the vacuum I didn’t sweep my floors for a few days, so it was extra dirty. I am sure with a daily cleaning schedule it will keep the floors clean – for the most part.
My only concern is because of the crazy cleaning pattern this uses, I can see it going over the same spots over and over and over again while missing other spots entirely. I think I am going to plant some dirt in the hallway, leave the house, engage the vacuum and see how much dirt it picks up. If it does a poor job I will report back here.
This iRobot vacuum is designed to work while you are away from home, which is a great idea. The only issue I have is during my initial 30-minute test it got stuck once. I had to pick it up and reposition it then hit the “clean” button and it started working again. If I were not home this would’ve stayed stuck the whole day which defeats the purpose of it running while you are not home.
I have not had a chance to see it self-dock. If/when I do I will report back here how it went.
My Overall Thoughts:
First, the app is fantastic. No issues or complaints there.
I have wanted a Roomba for so long, now that I have it I will enjoy it; however, in the 30 minutes I let it run for evaluation purposes, I could have vacuumed my whole 2700SF house in less time than it took for this vacuum to haphazardly and aimlessly wander my dining room kitchen and hallway without one room being fully cleaned.
With that being said I am going to rate it as 4 stars for now until a run the dirt test I mentioned earlier. If I come home after a long day of work and there is any dirt in the hallway, I am dropping it down to 2 stars. After all, once you strip away all the bells and whistles you just want a clean floor.
I own a 2000 square foot, single story home. I have a dog that sheds everywhere and 2 long haired cats. My household has a 4 year old that leaves crumbs everywhere and I too have long hair that sheds a lot. Most of my home has hardwood flooring, which shows every single one of those hairs. We have tile in the wet areas and carpet in a couple of the bedrooms. We also have rugs in the usual places, front door, back door, living room, kitchen, bathrooms etc. I have back problems, which makes both the daily vacuuming and sweeping really uncomfortable.
I owned one of the first Roomba models that came out and replaced it with newer robo-vacuums that were cheaper over the years. I purchased my last robo-vacuum based off of its trendy color and the relatively low cost. I would set it to clean as soon as I left in the morning and it worked, but I often found myself coming home and having to play hide-n-seek to find the vacuum. I can count, on both hands, the number of times the vacuum actually made it back to the base. I owned that vacuum for about 8 months before it died. I received a replacement from the company, which I was using up until I got the Roomba 890.
So here comes the Roomba 890 with Wi-Fi connectivity! It would be an understatement to say that I was excited, but skeptical after reading what this Roomba was capable of. I don't claim to be great with technology, and honestly, setting the Wi-Fi feature on this Roomba was the part that made me most nervous.
I opened the box and wow, this vacuum is nice. Inside the box were the instructions and warranty paperwork, a second filter (first one came installed), vacuum, base with charging cord, and the virtual wall barrier. The design of the vacuum is unique in that the bottom half is tapered outward and feels like a hard silicone. If you've never had a robo-vac before, this is important because it will avoid having dings and paint transfer all over your baseboards. This is huge to me. The vacuum is a tad heavier than the other brands I've had, which makes it feel really sturdy. It's also got a really sleek and modern looking design, which I don't mind displaying. Underneath, it has one 3 arm brush that spins to get baseboards and near walls and corners cleaned. It also has the actual vacuum part of the device. I was interested to find that the spinning cleaning brush on the vacuum part is actually made of silicone and has grooves and raised bits on it. It's not like most other vacuums that have the typical short twisted bristle brush that has to be cleaned every so often, as long hair and strings get wrapped up in it. I can't tell you how much I hated cleaning the short twisty bristles on my last robo-vac and every other vacuum I’ve ever owned.
I set the base up in a corner of my dining room. It's visible, but out of the way. I downloaded the iRoomba app on my Samsung Galaxy. The app and the instructions told me exactly what to do and how to register the product. The app didn't take up much space on my phone, which is always a plus. You can even name the vacuum, which I think would be really helpful if you had a multi-level home and more than one Roomba. After figuring out that my Wi-Fi was actually off, connecting the vacuum was a breeze. I didn't have to try to set up timers on the home base, like some other brands of vacuums have you do. The set-up process was super easy and takes only minutes.
It says that the vacuum was supposed to come partially charged, which I am not sure that mine actually was. I let the vacuum charge on the base overnight, which wasn't a big deal. In the morning, I was excited to try the Roomba. I turned the vacuum on by pressing the large button on the top of the vacuum. I totally forgot that I could use the app! The Roomba makes beeps when it backs off of the charging base, something my last robo-vac didn't do. My dog was curious about the beeping, but didn't bark at the vacuum at all, which is a win for me. The Roomba navigated its way through the legs of my dining room table and 6 chairs pretty well. It moved in a strange pattern, but it looked pretty efficient. I stood by and watched the Roomba move through the legs of my saddle style bar stools. The Roomba was fully inside of the 4 legs of the stool and moved the stool only about an inch while navigating its way out. My last vac would push the stools around while it was trying to get out, as they are pretty lightweight stools. I started becoming really impressed watching the Roomba hug the walls of my breakfast bar, even after the wall had about a 30 degree angle turn to it.
I put the barrier up to block off my kitchen, as I was making breakfast and I move all over the place. The wall barrier was actually pretty neat. It gives you the option to choose a straight line vs am arched barrier for the Roomba to not cross. This is not something I’ve had the option with on other brands. The barrier itself has a sleek design and is all too attractive to my dog. She loves to nudge it and knock it over, something she was not easily able to do on a different barrier. I wish that they would make the base a little wider than the rest of the device. Or, maybe they could make the base out of the same hard silicone type material that is on the bottom half of the vacuum itself. If you don't have a dog that likes to knock the base over, it's not an issue. Overall, the barrier is more helpful that it is inconvenient to me.
The Roomba kept cleaning my house and about 15 minutes later I heard it start making a bunch of beeping noises and then it started talking to me, loudly. I found it in my office and it told me that something was jammed in the vacuum and that I could reference the iRobot app if I needed help. I looked in the trash bin but couldn't find an obstruction, all I found was an embarrassing amount of pet hair. I emptied and put the bin back into the vacuum and still got the alert message. I took a few more pieces apart and found a piece of a ceramic pencil holder that my cat had knocked off of a desk about 6 months ago. The piece of ceramic was slightly curved and was about 2 inches by 1 inch, a sizable piece of debris. I'm impressed that the vacuum was able to get something of that size, shape, and weight vacuumed up. I was also impressed that the Roomba was able to find this piece and get to it, as it must have been behind/under the foot-board of my large desk. After removing the piece and checking that it didn't damage the Roomba, it didn't, I put the pieces back on and the vacuum went back to doing his thing.
I watched the Roomba transition easily over thresholds between flooring and transitioned onto and off of rugs really well. So far, it has not caught the corner of a small rug and drug it around...something I've had happen with other vacuums in the past.
I spent a lot of time watching the Roomba on his maiden voyage through my house. I am all too fascinated by its weird pattern and ability to clean my floors. I watched it suck up a phone charging cord that was left hanging on the floor, rookie mistake on my part. The Roomba stopped and sang its song, alerting me that there was as issue. It was really easy to pull the cord out of the Roomba and back to work he went. The Roomba went on his cleaning spree for just under an hour and then went back to his charging base. The journey to the charging base was not a straight line path, however, the Roomba made it back before the battery died, something my last robo-vac did not accomplish often. The Roomba did not clean my entire home in one session, but each area that it cleaned was cleaned quite well.
Overall, I'm impressed. The Roomba 890 is thin enough to get under my coffee and end tables. It gets under my desk and nightstands with ease as well. The Roomba 890 is significantly quieter than other robo-vacuums that I have owned. While I am not going to put it in a room with a sleeping baby or have it run while I am watching TV, it's definitely quieter than others and picks up more debris. The Wi-Fi connectivity feature is pretty neat. I can press a button on my phone and have the Roomba clean my floors while I am away or in another room. I can see the stats of the Roomba while using the app too. Personally, I find the features on the app more convenient than having a remote for the Roomba. I lose remotes frequently, but I always have my phone on me. I see that the Roomba 890 can be used with Amazon's Alexa and Google assistant's software, but I don't own either of those.
For the last few weeks, I have been running the Roomba while I am at work and have not had any issues yet. However, I am sure that the next time the Roomba picks up a large piece of debris, or eats a phone cord, that it’ll stop and I’ll have to play hide-and-seek to find it. I am hoping that the battery won't die and when I get home, I can use the app to easily locate the Roomba. This is not something I have experienced yet.
I really like the Roomba 890 and use it almost every day. It helps me keep my floors clean and grit-free. I can walk around barefoot and rarely step on a crumb. When you have a 4 year old that likes to roll around on the floor, keeping the floors clean is really important. I've tried other robotic vacuums and this one is better than most. The price point seems fair and I would/will buy another when this one wears out one day.
