5-0 out of 5 stars I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will never be without my Roomba again. Never. I have 5 dogs and 2 cats and assorted children and grandchildren. I need to vacuum more than once a day - three times is good. I run my roomba in the morning while I surf the net and in the evening while I watch TV with my husband. I know I should run it in the afternoon as well, but hey, it's gotta rest sometime.

This little gem is worth every penny and I picked up this model in a local Target since it's not available on the web yet.

I have mostly hardwood and tile floors but do have area rugs in a couple of rooms. This thing just hops onto the rugs and back off again though it sometimes lifts the edges of the rugs and sweeps it's little edge gizmo under the rug before hopping back on it. It gets every nook and cranny and I don't have to do the edges at all - they are perfect. Even my Scrubby Dutch grandmother would approve.

We love the "dirt alert" light. It's a stitch to sit and watch the thing go. My kids even want to run the vacuum - how many 10 year olds do you know who want to vacuum?????

It's entertaining to watch, does the job and keeps my floors very clean indeed. It goes everywhere, picks up so much that the first time I ran it I had to empty the little dust bin once before it was even done. That's not needed anymore though as it just keeps things clean, very clean.

The virtual walls work as they are supposed to, the animals don't bother it and it's quiet. The only thing I'd do is buy another one for the other half of the house. I can do three rooms but even with the rapid charger, it's hard to do the whole house twice a day, every day.

I can't think of a single negative thing. It comes with the rapid charger, two virtual walls and a charging base as well as the wall mount unit.

Now, where do I find those robotic lawnmowers???????

Amazon.com Review

Early Adopters Pick: March 2003. The first automatic vacuum available in the U.S.; introduced by iRobot, pioneers of artificial intelligence.

Roomba, the first automatic vacuum available in the U.S., is an intelligent vacuum that uses robotic technology to deliver both clean floors and personal time. Roomba uses artificial intelligence algorithms to clean efficiently and was introduced by iRobot, pioneers in artificial intelligence who have built numerous products for the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. military, and toy and energy companies. Thirteen inches in diameter and lighter than your average bowling ball, this innovative vacuum roams the room devouring dust, dirt, and tidbits left behind from everyday living.

Setting up your Roomba for its first sashay through the living room is fairly easy. You'll want to move any clothing, papers, cords, and fragile items off the floor before you start. You may choose to set up the Virtual Wall unit, which emits a beam to redirect the Roomba, keeping it out of unwanted areas. Make sure the rechargeable battery is fired up by checking the indicator light, set the Roomba in the center of the room, and press the corresponding button for a small (10 by 12 feet), medium (14 by 16 feet), or large (15 by 20 feet) room. When Roomba starts cleaning, it travels around the floor in a spiral pattern. When its bumper touches a wall, Roomba follows the wall for a short time, utilizing its spinning side brush to move objects away from the wall and into the vacuum's path. Then Roomba crosses the room in straight lines. It repeats this pattern until its cleaning time has elapsed, providing maximum cleaning coverage.

Although it may look more like a Frisbee than a vacuum, the Roomba cleans carpet, wood, linoleum, and tile, and comes with many of the usual vacuum accoutrements. The agitator brush roll picks up large debris, sucking it into the removable particle bin with filter. An edge-cleaning brush helps get into corners and angular areas. All the brushes and compartments can be removed for regular cleaning maintenance, and the unit comes with two replacement filters. Additional Virtual Wall units, battery packs, and a rapid charger can be purchased separately. The Roomba is covered by a 90-day parts and labor warranty. --Rhonda Langdon ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Roomba - Best Purchase I've Made In Five Years
...

As you can see from the picture, the Roomba is about 13 inches in diameter and about 4 inches high. You charge up the included battery pack (takes about 12-15 hours to charge, lasts about 90 minutes or 3 mid-sized rooms), put the Roomba in a room, press a button, and let it go to work. It has a "bounce" sensor on the front; if it runs into something, it turns around and goes off in another direction. It also has a sensor that makes it stop if the front edge goes over a stair or other drop-off, so it won't go tumbling down the stairs.

Finally, it comes with a "Virtual Wall Unit" which emits an infrared beam at the same height as the top of the Roomba and creates a barrier that the Roomba won't pass - you use this to block off cleaning areas to a size that the Roomba can easily tackle.

So, how does it really work? Well, after charging it up the first time, I decided to have it try our front entryway. It's a tile floor with a floor mat near the door and another rug (this one with tassles on two edges) laying in the middle. It is bounded by the door on one side, a wall on another side, a drop-off into the living room on another side, and carpeting (and the dining room) on another side. In order to give the Roomba a defined area to clean, I set up the Virtual Wall along the tile/carpeting boundary so that it would only pick up dirt and dust in the tiled area. iRobot warns you that tassled rugs can cause problems for the Roomba, but they provide an easy fix - simply tuck the tassles under the rug before vacuuming.

Having charged up the Roomba, I unplugged it, walked over to the area I wanted to clean, plopped the Roomba in the middle of the floor and punched the button for a medium-sized room. It played a little tune (sounds like the first four notes of "New York, New York, it's a helluva town, the Bronx is up and the Battery's down..." by Leonard Bernstein) and then starts cruising in a widening spiral for a while. Then it moves along a wall until it bumps into something, then it turns and goes off in another direction. The algorithm it uses apparently figures out approximately where the edges of the room are, and then has the Roomba do a random walk around the area until it has cleaned every spot at least two or three times.

It does a damned good job! My wife and I are rather messy people around our house, and we hadn't vacuumed in quite some time. The iRobot folks recommend that you do a "deep vacuuming" before using the Roomba, and then let it just do minor cleanups every once in a while to pick up stuff. I didn't. I basically just picked up the big pieces of paper, kitty crunchies, and other items that I didn't think it would pick up, and let it rip. When I had it clean our irregularly shaped master bathroom suite, it whirred around for quite some time and really did a fantastic job of picking up debris (yep, the little collection bin was full when I emptied it this time).

The Roomba does seem to favor wood and tile floors rather than carpet, since it really cruises around on the harder surfaces. On carpet it sounds very busy and almost like it's laboring a little, although it uncomplainingly cleans up the areas I set it in.

I can already see that I'm going to need to buy a couple of accessories for my Roomba. There's a "fast charger" that's becoming available soon that will let you fully charge the battery pack in 2 hours as opposed to 12. Definitely need that. I can also see that either having a second Roomba or another one of the Virtual Walls would be a good idea, so I can get it to clean around some odd shaped areas in our house. And another battery pack might be a good idea too, so I can get it to clean while I'm charging the second battery in the fast charger.

Being a couple of dinks (double income, no kids), my wife and I don't spend a lot of time at home. We've talked about hiring a maid service to come in and clean up once or twice a month. But if I can buy a pair of Roombas and set 'em free while I'm doing something else ..., I can keep my house relatively clean and not have to do the work myself. So far on one charge it has cleaned up the front hallway, our bedroom bathroom suite, about 3/4 of the kitchen floor, the landing on a stairway, and it's now doing a hallway near our bedroom. The battery indicator's showing a yellow LED, telling me that it may stop shortly as the battery runs out of charge.

If iRobot can come up with something that would sponge mop and dry these hard surfaces, clean a shower or toilet, or automatically paint a wall, I would buy one in a heartbeat. This is definitely a worthwhile product!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product
This is an excellent product, especially if you have a house with hardwood or tile floors.

Roomba should be thought of more as a sweeper than a vacuum cleaner. It's relatively quiet, and does a very thorough job of cleaning floors. For us, the battery lasts for 2-3 rooms, depending on room size. You can improve the speed (and thus the number of rooms cleaned on a single charge) by helping Roomba out --- for example, moving a few chairs in the dining area seems to speed up the cleaning process (Roomba doesn't spend a lot of time navigating through a maze of chair legs). The best part of it, you can set it free and go for a walk, coming back to a clean kitchen!

Things to be aware of:

* it probably won't do a particularly good job on deep carpets, and the battery charge would not last as long. We have a few area rugs, and Roomba will clean them, although it would noticibly slow down and would seem to strain. Make sure the tassles are hidden away.

* It helps to run Roomba frequently; it can do a very good job of maintaining a clean house, but I don't know how well it would clean a very dirty house.

* Roomba has an amazing ability to free itself after getting into tight corners. Of the first 20 or so runs, it got stuck only 3 times. Twice it was a clear mistake of ours (tassles each time), and once it somehow wedged itself under the refrigerator and could not free itself (this seems to have just been bad luck, it never did it again).

* It takes a long time to recharge (the manual says 12 hours and it really takes 12 hours!) We didn't try the rapid charger or extra battery packs.

* The "virtual wall" works great, but I wouldn't buy extra units --- strategically placed chairs, large trash cans, phone books and so on work just as well (I didn't try it, but an infrared diode would probably work just as well).

* As with humans, the emptier the room, the easier it is to clean it. Keep rooms clutter-free, and arrange furniture the way you would if you were to vacuum yourself. If you don't, Roomba will still do a good job (and will be a lot more fun to watch than in an empty room!), but it will take longer.

* It does produce some noise --- whether you would like to run it in the same room as yourself while reading a book depends on your noise tolerance. It is in any case (a lot) less loud than most vacuum cleaners I've heard, and you do have the option of not being in the room (although the show is hard to resist the first few times).

* I wish they would make a similar product to clean our driveway and patio!

5-0 out of 5 stars Roomba is to floors as a dishwasher is to dishes
If a dinner plate sized floor sweeper that can't handle shag carpets and has to be emptied after every room - and costs over $150 seems silly to you, consider this: A dishwasher can't handle dishes unless their prewashed (rinsed) first and even then often can't handle greasy or oversized items. And a decent dishwasher will run over $300.

But if you're like most people, once you've used a dishwasher a few times, you realize that a quick rinse-off followed by half an hour of automated sudsing yeilds clean dishes with far less fuss than handwashing. An added bonus is that a dishwasher washes and rinses with the hottest water available, sanitizing dishes that much better than handwashing that has to make allowances for human sensitivity.

The Roomba is the floor cleaning equivalent of a dishwasher. No, it doesn't suds up your floors. It sweeps and vaccuums using a computer algorithm search pattern designed to ensure that every accessible square inch of floor will be cleaned. The procedure is simple: First, follow the guidelines for Roomba-safing the room to be cleaned - find cords and fringes and rug edges that might get sucked up by Roomba and either set them out of harm's way or block off the area either physically or using the Virtual Wall unit to ward off the Roomba. Cords are easy since all it takes is lifting them above the sweepers edge-beater brush. Throw rugs and fringed valances can be moved or temporarily folded up out of the way. Second, block any doorways, either physically (moderate-sized hardbound books work great) or electronically with the Virtual Wall. Roomba's small size means the collector bins are small too (more on this in below.) Third, set Roomba in the middle of the room. Fourth, turn it on, designating whether the room is small, medium or large. The first time you clean a room, you should take a few minutes to see if there are any unexpected hazards that you might've missed in the first step. If not, then go do whatever you like. Thirty to forty-five minutes later, the floor will be clean.

And the Roomba will have cleaned not only the easily visible floor, but also under any piece of furniture with enough clearance for Roomba to roll. That's where the small size becomes an asset. Dust bunnies under the bed or sofa don't stand a chance. Even if you use the space under your bed for storage, unless you've crammed it so full that Roomba has no room to manuveur (which probably means you don't bother to vaccuum there anyway) Roomba will make its way into every nook and cranny it can reach.

We have the dream combination for Roomba - lots of hardwood and tile floors and two dogs that shed year round. Set it and forget it and the floors are always clean. I'd no more give up my Roomba than I would give up my dishwasher.

5-0 out of 5 stars Can't live without this product!
I've had this Roomba for over a year and absolutely love it! It works great to take care of pet hair, and that's saying a lot when you have 4 cats. I highly recommend this product! I even purchased them for my Mother and Grandmother. Everyone should have one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing, Life Changing, and Nifty
There isn't a product I've been more thrilled with in recent memory, and I'm a gadget freak. I firmly believe that we'll all be vacuuming our floors with robots in the near future given the quality and performance of this product.

I've probably got it easier than most suburbanites. We have no carpet, no elevation changes, and no furniture that could wedge the Roomba. But we do have two cats who just love to shed. And this thing picks up so much of their hair that I sometimes wonder whether it's grooming them in my absence. We wear no shoes in the apartment and (used to) vacuum and mop weekly. But the Roomba is doing a far, far better job of picking up hidden dirt and hair than we ever did. I can really feel the difference on my bare feet.

The cats appreciate it too. Though they don't like the noise, they watch it (from afar) with curiosity. I'm pretty sure that this is going to help reduce the frequency of hairballs because I know that the cats are now ingesting less hair because of the Roomba.

Here are some things I don't like about it. These things should be fixed in future versions:

1. I don't like that it takes 12 hours to charge it.
2. I don't like that it runs for just 90 minutes on a full charge in "max" (Roomba Elite only) mode.
3. It can be a tad difficult to clean. Really there should be just one bin to empty. Instead, you must:
- empty the filter container
- clean the filter itself
- empty the main dirt container
- clean the brushes
- swipe the whole thing clean of dust
- clean the side brushes
That's a tad intricate. Of course it's still FAR better than doing the vacuuming yourself, but the next generation of robot vacuums will need to be more self sufficient.

Amazon.com Review

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 ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars a MUST for those who hate vacuuming!
Roomba is simply incredible! My floors now get vacuumed 2-3 times a week rather than 2-3 times a month as when I had to it myself. It cleans so well and so thoroughly, you have to see the dust bin FULL of yucky crud to believe it. (Where does all that dirt come from in just two days?) The best part is that Roomba vacuums under the furniture! The only pieces in my apartment that it can't get under are the nightstands, due to their insufficient width. BUT, I did have significant problems getting a unit that didn't have anything wrong with it. I bought the first one -- a Pro Elite -- at the Sharper Image in Dallas, TX. It turned out to be a "return" and was DOA when I got it home. That sucked! Roomba #2 lasted about 3 months and then stopped picking up -- it turned out that the main brush wouldn't spin anymore because its attachment doodads on the ends had been stripped. I don't know if it's because I didn't put the brush back in properly after a cleaning or not. . . Roomba #3 seemed fine except it seemed to crap out after a relatively short period of time. . . after clocking it twice at only 35 minutes, I returned it for Roomba #4, which seems to be fine after two months use. I did pay I think $50 for a 3-year replacement warranty -- which I won't be surprised if I have to use -- but it's worth it!

5-0 out of 5 stars This vacuum cleaner REALLY cleans!!!
I got my Roomba this week, and so far I've cleaned my living room/dining room floor (berber wall to wall carpeting) and my kitchen/hallway/powder room (laminate imitation 'hard wood'). I had vacuumed the day before with my upright vacuum cleaner, so I was surprised when the Roomba stopped part way through my carpeted living room/dining room. It beeped at me to tell me I needed to empty the dust bin - there was a lot of dirt there from my supposedly clean floor. It took running the Roomba three times until it could clean this 500 square foot area without stopping (and this third time, when it was done, the dust bin was nearly empty). (I expect I'll use the Roomba about once a week, since my job takes me out of town during the week - I used to vacuum about once a month with my upright, but this is SO EASY TO USE!!!)

The carpet and laminated flooring are three years old, and I'd never really noticed how much 'stuff' had accumulated in corners and along the edges of my two couches and my book shelves. When Roomba was done with cleaning, I didn't recognize my floors (they were so clean I thought I was in my daughter-in-law's mother's house - she's a cleaning fanatic.)

In addition to the bristled brush and a rubbery brush on the bottom of the Roomba there's this little wimpy-looking pair of little brushes that spin near the bumper on the Roomba - they look a little like the old-fashioned mascary brushes (but with softer bristles), and the 'handles' are rubber that's about the weight of a medium-heavy rubber band. I couldn't believe this could possibly help to clean around the edges of the wall and furniture - but the little spinning edge brushes 'sweep' debris stuck along the edges under the main brushes of the Roomba.

The battery charger that comes with the Roomba takes 12 hours to charge and will fun Roomba for 60-90 minutes, depending on the type of floor it's cleaning (I get about 70 minutes out of a 'full charge' on my berber carpeting, and 90 minutes on the laminated flooring.) BUT you can buy a separate 'rapid charger' accesory that will charge the battery in 2.5-3 hours. For me, with my 'only home on weekends' schedule, the rapid charger was something I NEEDED.

There's also a remote control unit - (the model I bought came with it, but it can be purchased separately.) I don't usually use 'remote controls' for anything, BUT... the Roomba can get 'stuck' in certain areas where it's hard to reach, and the Remote Control can be used to 'drive' the Roomba out of the 'stuck' places. (I have a very large marble end table in a corner where I have two large leather couches at right angles to each other, and I NEVER vacuumed under there because it was just too awkward to reach. My Roomba wandered under that table and just couldn't figure out how to get out again, so I crawled around on my hands and knees trying to reach the Roomba. THEN I looked at the remote control unit and the instructions and saw that I didn't need to crawl around if the Roomba got 'stuck').

Also, the RoombaVac web site sponsors a 'forum' for Roomba users - I've gotten lots of useful information from that 'foum'. For example, Roomba came with a pack of 3 filters, and I ordered another set of filters, figuring they'd need to be changed often. But a Roomba user posted today and said she's still using the same filter after more than 300 hours of cleaning - she takes it out and washes it in warm, soapy water whenever she empties the dust bin, and lets it dry while she's recharging the battery. So I guess I now have several years worth of filters!

I am VERY glad I got this Roomba!

4-0 out of 5 stars Roomba works for me
Before i start my review let me explain how my house is set up. i live in a one bedroom apt with one cat and no rugs. i have been using the roomba now for about 3 weeks and i do have to say over all i am very impressed with it. it does however require a little bit of maintenance to keep it up and running in prime condition but nothing to complicated. and i do highly suggest getting the rapid charger you will need it because the battery doesnt really last long enough to get the whole house done on one charge. i cant really say how well it would work in a house with more then one pet or even with rugs....but for a single guy its worth it

5-0 out of 5 stars Should have bought one sooner! Should have bought two!
Two words: It works. I think what I like best is how it keeps the wood floors "barefoot clean". It also does carpets well and since it has a beater bar also leaves that "vacuumed" look in the form of tracks on the carpet, although they are random patterns reminiscent of a Pollack painting.

At first it won't save you any time, because you'll spend a lot of time just watching it work because it's fun. After a while though you'll get a big kick out of turning it on and leaving the house and then finding the job done when you get back.

A couple of tips:

1. Buy an extra battery and definitely the quick charger. This way you can have one charging while the other is in the robot, vacuuming away.

2. Learn to prepare the rooms. You'll have to watch the robot the first time it does each room or area, just to get a feel for where to put the virtual walls and how to move the furniture around.

3. At a minimum, buy the pro model with the "spot" mode. You'll use it a lot.

4. You'll need to deep vacuum your carpets at least once every two weeks.

That's it. It is worth every penny. I will probably buy another one for the upstairs.

4-0 out of 5 stars We love this so much we bought two
Originally skeptical about how well it worked we purchased one. Shortly after the first Roomba Pro we purchased a second one because it worked so well. We now go to dinner and let the Roomba's clean the house. We have 2 cats and one large dog. You do have to make sure you empty them each time and clean any pet hair out of the undercarriage. Outside of that I highly recommend Roomba Pro. ... Read more
