+Setup is simple. Just follow the simple directions to remove the battery tag and the cardboard in the dust bin compartment. (I missed the latter at first - oops). iRobot has a great support center on their web site with manuals, FAQ's and helpful videos to show how to use the Roomba 800 series.
+The Roomba seems to use the "drunken sailor" method of covering the floor. There was no obvious pattern to me in how it moved around a room. There was one corner it seemed to really like and it's probably the cleanest it's ever been!
+I did not use the virtual wall other than for a quick test. it worked perfectly and was respect by the Roomba.
+The Roomba is quiet for a vacuum but noisy enough to wake me from sleep. I have a small home and sleep on the main floor. I like my bedroom door to stay open. With the door closed or sleeping further away I expect this would not be a problem. I will probably get used to it.
+The Roomba needs periodic maintenance beyond emptying the dust bin. This is important and iRobot brand parts are not inexpensive, but 3rd party parts are available for much less.
+Compared to the 50% more expensive 880 package I think the 860 is a better value. I don't feel the need for a remote and don't need the virtual walls. If those are important to you, then it's probably better than getting these accessories separately.
Bottom Line: The Roomba 800 series (based on dust bin contents) cleans better than my upright. That may be from going places my upright cannot. Easy setup, scheduling, and automatic operation help keep my floor cleaner than depending on me and my upright vacuum. Maintenance is needed for continued good performance but is not onerous.

ABOUT THE ROOMBA 860:
iRobot packages Roomba models based on included accessories. All Roomba robots in the 800 series are the same. The different "models" are different accessory sets. All include the docking station. The 860 also includes one dual-mode virtual wall to help contain your Roomba in your home and one spare HEPA filter.
The 880 model by comparison is the same Roomba but adds 2 virtual "lighthouses" , an extended life battery, and a remote control to the 860 package. It does not have the dual mode virtual-wall of the 860. It's $200 more than the 860 as of this review.
The Roomba requires regular maintenance and a iRobot kit with 3 HEPA filters, 2 Brush sets, and 1 set of rollers is available on Amazon but is much less directly from iRobot. 3rd party kits are available on Amazon for much less.
iRobot has VERY helpful information section on their irobot.com web site. You can find a quick start, detailed information, instructional videos (I liked these), FAQs, Manuals and other related information. I would have benefited from visiting the help center before setting up my Roomba. This is NOT to say setup is difficult: It's quite easy.
Having an engineering background I jumped in and winged the setup. I missed removing the cardboard from the dust bin before the first run. When I pulled out the bin, there it was, no harm done. Moral: at least look over the manual or the excellent support pages described above.
First steps include setting up the docking station, pulling the battery tab, removing the cardboard from the dust bin, and setting it on the dock to charge fully. Mine appeared to have about 3/4 charge out of the box. When I turned mine on with the center button I was prompted to set the time. Setting a cleaning schedule was just as easy after reading the instructions.
Since this is my first robotic vacuum I was very curious how it would work. I used the center button to turn it on (after fully charged) and watched...
The Roomba wanders around my rooms like a very drunken sailor! It's kind of entertaining the first time. It did find its way out of every corner or cage of table legs eventually. There is one corner the Roomba seemed to favor; a LOT. I think it's the cleanest corner of my home! I have not seen any obvious sign or learning intelligence in how it meanders around the room. After watching for an hour I think it probably covered the whole floor.
Obstacles were handled pretty well by the Roomba. It found its way out of every place it could get into. Sometimes this took a long time, but it did find a way out. Other obstacles like throw rugs were handled pretty well but sometimes got pushed up rather than be rolled onto. The Roomba treated these like furniture and just changed direction. I have not used my Roomba where it would be exposed to stairs or drops.
One thing that impressed and amused me is how the 800 series Roomba handles jams. I noticed it picking up a hair tie and then a napkin. I thought "Oh boy, now I learn how to clear a jam!" A few seconds later the Roomba "threw-up" the napkin and hair tie on the floor and moved on. I didn't see that coming and was duly impressed. Well done iRobot!
I so not feel the need for the remote control. If I'm going to spot cleaning I'll be picking up the Roomba anyway. Once a schedule is set I think I'll rarely change it. My expectation that with rare use I'd spend more time looking for the remote than it would take to walk over and use the buttons on the Roomba.
I have a smallish Electrolux upright and I have been very happy with. After using the Electrolux in another room I set the Roomba lose. I was impressed by how much it got compared to the Electrolux. In the very best sense I think the Roomba really sucks and it cleans better than my upright.
It's important to regularly empty the dust bin of the Roomba. I know this sounds obvious, but I'm subject to the out-of-site/out-of-mind mindset. It's easy for me to forget to empty the dustbin and check the filter. The spinning brushes and rollers also require regular maintenance. Information on all this is in the manual as well as on the iRobot web site.
I was first fascinated by the Roomba 860 when I got the chance to try it. After using it for a while I've come to like it quite a lot. It cleans better than my manual Electrolux and saves me time. The $500 price seems expensive to me. But how much is it worth to get back that manual vacuuming time? Over a year or two I think it should be enough to seems a fair to good value on just that basis.
The Roomba has become enough of my home background that I don't think about it too much anymore. In fact I need to set reminders so I keep up with the maintenance and remember to empty the dust bin.
The Roomba 860 has been a time saver and cleans better than my trusty Elextrolux upright. It's just a pretty cool new thing for a tech loving person like me and still simple enough for the non-techie. It's a very well done robotic vacuum refined by years of experience in the marketplace. I am confident the Roomba will continue to improve. This is a solid 5 star performance to me.
1) The brushes that needed near daily attention to pluck pet hair out have been done away with. Now they are replaced with a low maintenance rubberized system that I have not needed to mess with for a month. I think this is the biggest improvement.
2) It is quieter. We couldn't watch TV with the 595 going. We are okay with the 860. This isn't a big deal if you schedule it right though.
3) No more battering ram. The 860 seems to glide into things more gently than the 595 which enjoyed smacking into things, oftentimes with little signs of slowing.
UPDATE 3 MONTHS AFTER USE:
After the arrival of my trusty 595, I had a chance to compare these two head to head. Turns out I should have waited before I celebrated the items I listed above. In fact, when it came time to buy a 3rd Roomba - I went backwards to the 650 (essentially the same as the 595) to get the job done. Here is why:
1) The quiet rubber brushes don't work as well on carpet. I'm not talking shag, just the higher end home depot stuff. When it came time to unleash a robot to clean up the new carpet fibers after install, the 860 rubberized mechanism barely did a thing. Grandpa 595 and its brush significantly outperformed. The 595 also collected more pet hair when I emptied the bin.
2) The gentle nature of the 860 was no good in kids' environments. While my subwoofer in the living room appreciated no more broadsides, the cost was a robot that would turn and run if it hit a tiny bouncy ball, rather than push it out of the way. Basically, any little toy or shoe sent the 860 heading the other way. The brawnier 595/650, on the other hand, rolls the ball or lone shoe aside to get its job done.
In summary, due to its quieter running, the 860 would be my choice if I had no kids, no pets, and no carpet. While I do like the 860 cleaning the non-carpeted living room and kitchen area, for the rest of the house I would recommend the 650 as more of an all purpose robot. Plus it is about 200 bucks cheaper.
