Summary: So, I've purchased this product back in 2012, it worked fine for about 18 months; I has shown some problems and I've started to chase it's manufacture (ROOMBA) in order to sort that out.. It has been gone three, four months and no solution for my problem.
Summary: Think it worked 3 times before it died. Took forever to charge and when I wrote to the company they were very unhelpful. It sat in my garage for 3 years and this week I decided to buy a new battery and try once more... 3 days of charging and nothing. I was unlucky and it's off to the local skip now.
Summary: i have had cheaper robot hoovers, This works great and does the job. It is perfect for the laminate floors and short pile carpets it does not go back to charge when on low battery. does not like long hair. a remote would be very handy
Summary: I love my Roomba. It is called Eileen and it does what it's suppose to do. There are some limitations like corners, stairs etc (but I knew about it beforehand). It also could go around the same spot for a bit, but if you leave her to it, she does a good job.
Summary: I bought one of these based on reviews and whilst i was skeptical i was quite excited by the prospect of something to help me with the house work. The first few days I must say i was disappointed. It didn't do a very thorough clean and felt I'd wasted my money.
Summary: I had been looking at these robots for a number of months, wondering if they could possibly live up to their claims. Well if your wondering the same let me assure you they do. we have a Dyson canister pet model that's a year old, which was bought because we have a long haired cat.
Summary: I cannot recommend this enough! I had looked at these about a year ago and reactions seemed mixed but after reading mostly glowing reviews on the 555 model I took the plunge. We used to have a cleaner at £20 a week (but had to stop due to cut backs!
Summary: First of all - it is a great piece of kit. And yes, there are some "buts" which one should be aware of. I had the Roomba for couple of months now and I am very happy with it. It does not replace your "normal" hoover, but it makes life easier. We have a two storey house approx 100sqm.
