+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.
When I got the 860 I charged it overnight, and I actually swept a little. I even moved a little furniture. When I first started it, like everyone else, I followed it around watching it clean. It went back to it's charger after 10 minutes because the bin was full! For the next couple of weeks I became an expert at cleaning the filter and emptying the bin. You couldn't see the dust on the floors, but it's almost like it was pulling it out of the tiny cracks between the hardwoods, and it really had a field day under the beds! It goes and cleans in places that I hadn't even thought about, and I find myself standing there and thinking "well, that's a good idea"! It is so powerful, and once it gets your floors in decent condition it will go for 2 hours, easy, because of the lithium ion battery. That is one of the best features about the 860...the only other Irobot that has it is the 980. I did so much research that I feel like I know my robot vacuums inside and out!
I have long hair, and I shed a lot. I found myself wondering where all that long hair was. When I followed the instructions and unscrewed the little side brush there was a big ball of hair under it. Then I took the little roller bars out and it was all wound up inside on both ends. This is not a fault because it's so much nicer to clean out a few balls of hair instead of having it tangled up in brushes or even worse, floating around your feet. Irobot has made it easy to clean the thing out, and it only takes a couple of minutes. Okay, at this point I realize I sound like a commercial for Irobot, so let me assure you that I WISH I was one of those people who got their products for free, but I paid full price for mine.
The 860 is so powerful that I get nervous when it is around power cords. I found out it's designed to back up when it gets on them, but it still made me nervous. I have bunch of extension cords and all kinds of things hooked up around my bed, so my solution was to block the roomba off with a 4 ft long by 2 inch wide axe handle. Well, it seriously climbed right over that axe handle with such determination that I stood in awe as I also freaked out. This thing is amazing, and maybe a little bit scary, lol.
If you are wavering between the 860 and 880, I would go with the 860 because of the lithium battery. It's stronger and will last a lot longer. It doesn't have a memory like the other roomba batteries (like I said, I've done my research). I ended up having to return my 860 because it started making a clicking noise that I couldn't fix by cleaning it. Also, the lights on the machine and charger weren't working the way they should. I'm telling you this so you will know what to look for, but even with the clicking and lights, it still was a crazy cleaning machine. I loved it! The 880 went on sale and I really thought I needed the remote. It turns out that the remote only works if you point it right at the machine, so I have barely used it. The lighthouses are nice I suppose, but I found that I rarely even needed the virtual wall that came with the 860. More than likely I will return the 880 and go back to the 860 with the lithium ion battery. Although the 880 is running fine this first week, it will only go for an hour whereas the 860 was topping out at more than 2. I hope this helps you make your decision. Whether or not to get one at all is a no brainer. It's the best thing I've ever had.
Bottom line, my floors have never been this clean. Today I'm going to celebrate by mopping!
