Looking for recommendations for a robot vacuum
« on: February 05, 2013, 04:52:31 PM »
I am looking into getting a robot vacuum.  Anyone here have one?  Which one and how good of a job does it do?

Thanks

Just don't...

Seriously though. I bought an irobot roomba a year and a half ago and it's been accumulating dust. I've used it a dozen times but you have to use it very often; otherwise it will get stuck with large chunks of dust every time you run it and you'll be chasing after it emptying the bag and restarting it... At the time I was hesitating between the roomba (vacuum cleaning) and the scooba (floor washing) but if you really want one now I would go with the floor washing version (if you have hardwood, marble, tile, etc..)

I would be using it for light cleaning, like after dinner mess in the kitchen. Not for major cleaning... is it good enough for that?

If u run it often then u r fine it does a pretty decent job, but you should definitely empty the trash slot after each 1-2 uses.

So far I'm loving it! I put it on Friday morning and coming home to a vacuumed house before Shabbos is incredible. The mopping part is only so so but I knew that going in. Yet, I just got the fancy mopping add-on so well see how that goes.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Thanks! How long do you already have it?

Recently bought a refurbished Roomba 980 ($300 on eBay), after having a Roomba 860 for many years. Happy with both of them.

We have a Roomba 690 and very unhappy. Noisy like a tractor and no navigation pattern whatsoever. (We then bought a Dyson v10 and now there's life before the dyson and life after the dyson)
