Enter Ruby. Oh Ruby... how I love thee. I ordered Ruby on a Sunday, coincidentally the same day I talked my husband into sweeping and mopping the floors without my assistance. By Thursday when Ruby arrived, the Doggie Hair tumbleweeds and dirt were beginning to take over the house again. Ruby was easy to set up, and while she was charging for her maiden voyage, my husband and I set out to reconfigure some areas in our home where we had things stored on the floor, under beds, or cords were left in the way,etc. While we were at it, we went ahead and swept dirt out of the awkward corners into the main floor area to see how she'd do. Our home is one level, 2400sq ft mostly hardwood and tile with carpet in just the bedrooms. We do not have rugs with the exception of a bath mat in 2 of the bathrooms. Our house is older, and has been remodeled so there are a couple of awkward corners.
On Day one, Ruby struggled. Oh bless her poor little drunken soul. She bobbed and weaved and missed areas and spit things back out and eventually died lost in a back bedroom. We re-charged her and ran her again. She did ok the second time, but again got stuck somewhere with a dead battery. (I emptied her dust bin a total of 5 times that day and it was incredibly full each time. For shame!!) We went ahead and set up a schedule for her, and thought If we weren't happy after a week, we'd return her and go back to fighting and slaving over the floors and finding excuses for people to not come over.
After 6 days, I can honestly say I'm in love with Ruby. Six whole days of us not touching a broom (aside from sweeping the dirt from an awkward corner into her path the first day), there is not a single doggie hair tumbleweed on our floors. My feet are pretty clean when I run around barefooted all day. I'm no longer embarrassed or panicked when someone says they're going to stop by the house. It's even clean under the beds and couches!!! $324.73 and WORTH EVERY PENNY!!
Here are the questions I really wanted answered before I purchased, so I'll try to answer them for you.
1. No, she doesn't go in a direct grid pattern. Run her everyday, and she'll get what she missed yesterday today. Give her time, she really does get better each day! *After the first week I watched her work and I've noticed she now follows a more grid like pattern. It's not a perfect grid, but it's obvious there's a method to her madness*
2. Wifi function is great for setting a schedule, and for locating her when she occasionally can't find her way home when her battery dies, and for starting her away from home if you need to. I think we probably could have lived without this function, but I'm not sorry we have it.
3. My white baseboards and all furniture legs are perfectly fine
4. The same dogs that are petrified of my upright Kirby and upright Bissel Shampooer don't pay any attention to Ruby unless she runs into them.
5. Watching TV or going about regular life while she's running is no problem. Working from home means she needs to be in a other part of the house due to the noise
6. Yea, she can't always find her way home when her battery dies. My husband and I decided we're perfectly willing to go chase her down and put her on her base in exchange for not having to manually clean our floors. *Ruby has now docked herself everyday except for 1. I guess she just needed to learn the floor layout that first week* *Week 3 she now always docks herself*
7. She has not scratched our original hardwood floors.
8. She transitions easily from one flooring to the next, even over the little connector strip thingies (All of my flooring is light colored)
9. Give her a week. While moving things off the floors and out from under beds the first day, I left her a couple of treasures (dog hair that was embedded around the bed posts and other tight areas). I checked today,(6 days later) and she has gotten all the hair that's wrapped itself around furniture legs in the whole house
10. Mopping: Originally I had planned to purchase a robotic mop shortly after getting Ruby. As the weeks went by, I noticed it was 3 weeks before the floors needed to be mopped again and frankly , I could have gotten away with a spot mop then. What we had normally spent about 20 minutes on once a week, has turned into 20 minutes every 3 weeks. So overall, we've traded in an average of 2.5 hours a week of our time cleaning floors each week for a new average of roughly 10-15 minutes per week between dumping ruby and occassionally mopping. Thank you Ruby!
I read about covering the sensors (this model has five around the front and sides) with paper. Didn’t work. I read about using the shiny side of tin foil. Didn’t work. I ready about covering with various types of tape. None worked. I finally found a partial solution: clear packing tape on white paper and tape THAT to the sensor. It tricked it for about a week (the best week ever!!!! Floors sooooo clean!!), but those pieces of paper get dirty and need to be replaced and I can’t get that trick to work again. So, the last remaining solution is to take the unit apart and disconnect the sensors from the motherboard. Not an easy task. And no doubt will void the warranty. It is 2017, iRobot!!! This has been an issues for a decade—-FIGURE IT OUT!!!!

I often joke that it's like having a dumb dog, though, because it constantly runs into things, gets stuck on things, and chews up cables and shoe laces.
Sometimes I'll come home from work to find it's accidentally closed a door behind itself and run out of battery trying to find a way back to the charging port. Other times it will get stuck under something and call out for me to come rescue it.
I don't often run it while I'm home because it is quite loud, but it's a vacuum cleaner, so what can you expect.
If you're careful to make sure the floor is clear of loose cables and shoes, it works like a charm.
Small area rugs and bath mats need to be off the floor or gets bunched up. Mat by the front door used 2 way take to keep in place and it cleans it fine.
I owned a Roomba a few years back and I remember the battery life not being that great and it cost a lot of money to replace the battery. I hope that has improved since.
- picks up 95% of the fur (can’t always figure out how to climb onto different rugs, ok w the flat ones)
- gets all the corners/rooms of my condo
- not that loud
- not as pricey as other roombas
- can find its way back to the home base
- you have to hand clean the roller every 5 runs or so because all the dog hair just gets bunched up and caught, making the roller unable to rotate
- you have to make sure there’s no toys or wires etc on the floor, else the Roomba gets tangled or stuck. It’s ok around chairs, food bowls, lamps etc
Also, the robot easily gets close to drapes to clean wall sides, or it can go under your bed or couch if they have skirt. To do these, the robot “examines” the barrier and lifts the fabric or pushes it away if it can be moved, pretty much as seen on the marketing video for the robot.
The robot software could potentially be smarter. In my experience, older iRobt models moved smarter in my home. Both models move “randomly” but the older model seems to have more exception routines, to handle the job better.
I have operated this robot 5 times so far. It has found its base 4 times, that has been very useful for the times I wanted to operate the robot remotely, using its phone app, for the second time after it has charged. So far, it has gotten stuck only once in the more than 7 hours of operation.
Pros: cleans well, reaches almost all areas, does not get stuck easily
Cons: A bit pricy, could be smarter
Update: I've changed my review from 5 to 4 stars, due to the fact this thing leaves black marks all over my trim. It can be washed off with a magic eraser and some scrubbing but the whole point was to reduce my amount of cleaning! Still, it does an amazing job with the dog hair and dirt the dogs bring in so I am overall still very satisfied. No more daily sweeping!
Update 2 from 4 stars to 1: A few months into ownership, the battery is constantly drained. Roomba gets lost and then stuck, requiring to be reset manually. We’ve tried the little room divider thing, we’ve tried changing it’s base, cleaning/maintaining it, and reaching out to customer support. At this point, nothing and no one has helped solve the issue. The worst part of it, is that it has damaged my home. My stainless steel appliances have had their coating worn down, and my trim is constantly covered in black track marks. I don’t know if my model came with a defective sensor, or what the problem is, but this is a total waste of money and for long term, I cannot recommend it.
She hates vacuuming almost as much as I do, but likes to have clean floors. That's not easy to do when you have a giant four-legged furbaby.
We named our roomba "Tina". Tina cleans the floors every day for nearly two hours. And when we get home from work, our sock feet no longer look like they belong to a Yeti any more.
I change Tina's diaper once every day. It takes about 5 minutes each time. And my wife still vacuums, but only once a week, and mainly just a spot-clean where Tina can't go.
The filter seems to be washable, but the brushes will need to be replaced soon. Tina has been working at our house for about a half year now.
The app for this model only works with 2.4ghz wi-fi so I had to get my brother to help me change my router from 5ghz but now that that's done, it's good to go!
It looks like a drunk child zipping around so it's fun to watch if you're bored or if you want to see what a drunk child would look like (please do not get a child drunk... I can't stress that enough!!)
Very Very happy with this and I recommend it 100%
