Product Description

Amazon.com

An intelligent vacuum that uses robotic technology to deliver barefoot-clean floors in-between more thorough cleanings, iRobot’s Roomba Pro follows in the footsteps of the original model (the first automatic vacuum available in the U.S.). But it also adds some great new features, including Spot Clean. Selecting this option sets the Roomba Pro spiraling around a small area up to three feet wide, great for cleaning up dry spills or extra dirt. Thirteen inches in diameter and lighter than your average bowling ball, this innovative vacuum will roam a room devouring dust, dirt, pet hair, and tidbits left behind from everyday living.

Setting up the Roomba Pro for its first sashay through the living room is fairly easy. First, the battery needs charging for at least 12 hours before its maiden voyage; simply plug the AC adapter into any outlet and it will shut off automatically when fully charged. After that, the indicator light’s different colors will show the battery’s charge status. The Roomba Pro can clean two to three medium sized rooms on one charge, approximately 60 to 90 minutes, depending on floor surface. Although it may look more like a Frisbee than a vacuum, the Roomba Pro cleans carpet, wood, linoleum, and tile, transitioning smoothly between those surfaces. It even senses and avoids stairs, and glides easily under beds.

Next, remove any clothing, papers, cords, and fragile items from the floor. You may choose to set up one or both of the fist-sized Virtual Wall units, which emit a beam to redirect the Roomba Pro, keeping it out of unwanted areas. Set the Roomba Pro in the center of the room, and press the green power button to turn it on. Then select the corresponding button for a small (10 by 12 feet), medium (14 by 16 feet), or large (15 by 20 feet) room. The Roomba Pro plays a few musical notes of greeting, then begins moving.

When the Roomba Pro starts cleaning, it travels around the floor in a spiral pattern. When its non-marring bumper touches a wall, the Roomba Pro follows the wall for a short time, then crosses the room in straight lines. It repeats this pattern until its cleaning time has elapsed, providing maximum cleaning coverage.

The Roomba Pro’s breakthrough three-stage cleaning system uses side brushes, two main counter-rotating brushes, and a high-efficiency squeegee to pick up everything from fine to large particles. The particle bin removes for emptying. The unit comes with an easy-to-follow manual and two replacement filters. Additional Virtual Wall units, battery packs, and a rapid charger can be purchased separately. Two D batteries (not included) are required for each Virtual Wall. The Roomba Pro is covered by a 180-day parts and labor warranty. --Rhonda Langdon

I'll say it right now, I like the little booger. It has its flaws, but I like it, and so does everyone that has seen it so far.
If you like nice, straight vacuum lines after you clean the carpet, this bot isn't for you. If you don't mind, read on.
Anyways, what's the difference between the old Roomba, the "Pro" version, and the "Pro Elite"?
All Roomba versions start off in circles until it hits a wall, then follow the wall for a while, then turn away from the wall and drive straight until it smacks another wall... "criss-crossing" as iRobot describes it. After a while, it'll start its circular pattern up again. Lather, rinse, repeat. If it gets caught in a tricky part of the room where the furniture layout isn't so conventional, it may find its way out eventually, but not after going over the same portion of floor over and over... and sometimes over over over over. And over. But at least it won't run off the stairs. And it follows the room perimeter very, very nicely.
The original also comes with a "virtual wall unit", so you don't have to close the door or put a chair in the doorway so the robot doesn't wander out of the room you want cleaned - it's just a little gizmo that emits a beam that the Roomba won't cross. The Pro and Elite versions come with two virtual wall units.
The Pro and Elite versions add a "spot mode", where it goes in circles in a 3' diameter for a considerable amount of time. If you're too lazy to bring the big vac out, place the Roomba Pro on the mess and hit the big "spot" button on the top. If it smacks into something during the spot mode, Roomba is smart enough to concentrate back to where it's suppose to be vacuuming.
Also, you can use the "Roomba Remote" to control the Roomba Pro & Elite. Got a huge queen or king sized bed?

We bought my daughter and son-in-law an original Roomba for their wedding this summer. She's a little on the practical side, he's a little like me, likes gadgets. We thought this would be a perfect gift. They loved it! So much, that they were looking forward to bringing it back to our house to show us how great it was. If it passed their expectations, we had to have one ourselves. Low and behold...we found new models, the Pro & Pro Elite. After carefully searching the internet I found there are many different packages available. We ended up purchasing a Pro model package that included 2 extra filters, two virtual walls, and the remote that actually activates the same features the Pro Elite model provides.
There's Pro's & Con's depending on your expectations;
It can follow the outer wall perimeter of a room, work it's way around furniture and back to the wall. It has deliberation in it's pattern madness. It WILL cover the entire room. Unfortunately, the battery charge does not accomodate a very large room. We purchased a rapid charger (2.5 hrs.) and an extra battery to keep Roomba ready to go.
With minor room prepping to eliminate wires, "wedge" shaped areas under furniture, frayed area rugs, you can turn it loose and let it work while you're gone. It simply stops when the charge runs out. But you need to make sure the room is prepped as Roomba will cry for help if in a situation he can't get out of. I won't go into details but Roomba does have some personality.
The heavy elevated furniture (bed, couch, curio) that can't get moved weekly, can now be cleaned under weekly.
The only features that kept me from giving this 5 stars is: The catch bin is very small. The battery run time is around an hour, at best. The recharge time is around 12 hours.

By A Customer on January 3, 2004
I love this thing! I bought one of these for my husband to give me for my birthday (yep..he's that kind of guy:-) I was a bit concerned as we have an open floor plan with lots of furniture about. I didn't need to worry. This thing goes (and goes, and goes). It has no trouble navigating around any of my furniture, heck it even circles my end table legs to clean under the table. It's also great for getting the kids to pick up their toys (okay guys, I'm setting out the roomba, toys up). If it helps, I've got 5 kids, 2 cats, and 1 dog. We have all laminate and tile flooring. I am NOT a neat freak, so there's definitely stuff for the roomba to pick up. Even the hubby was surprised at how well the roomba picks up.
Two points. It's definitely louder than I thought it would be (maybe a little quieter than a regular vacuum). No talking on the phone or watching TV while the Roomba goes about it's job. We use it at night downstairs, this way everyone's upstairs in bed and the noise is not a factor. It would also be fine if you are using it during the daytime - simply in another area of the house. Shop around for the best price. I was able to get the Roomba Pro with a remote (which makes it operate the same as the Elite model it just doesn't have the pretty useless wall hanger thing), from HSN.com for 149.50 including tax and shipping. The price was $199 - the entertainment coupon book (available nationwide) has a 25% off HSN.com coupon in it, which brought the price down to 149, and there was no tax or shipping. I would also suggest investing in either an additional battery or the rapid charger (an extra battery will be cheaper). I have been able to cover approximately 1000 sq ft on a single battery charge, but the 12 hour wait for charge time with one battery gets real old real fast.
