Summary: It's the second time I purchase iRobot Roomba 581. First one crashed after 1 week with an error 9. Unable to solve following instructions. This second unit crashed after 5 days, unable to recharge the battery. a 5 start to amazon regarding the management of the return and reimbursment.
Summary: This is the best thing since sliced bread! Hugo, yes he has a name, is part of our family and i could not live without him now. He has his own zig zag way of cleaning up and it works so well. How good does it feel to go out and leave him to his work and come home to spotless floors all through.
Summary: A Dyson might be the best vacuum cleaner technically, where it falls down is frequency of use and how precise you are when using it. My new Roomba 581 was set a challenge. I vacuumed my living room with my Dyson in my normal way and then let the Roomba have a go.
Summary: I have now had my Roomba for 2 weeks and so far I am very excited! It is very easy to set up and use. My only problem was on the first day: when I started it, it wedged itself stuck under a radiator. This problem is solved by setting up the lighthouses that come in the box.
Summary: The Roomba I received was faulty. A replacement battery was sent. It still didn't work. I then requested a refund. The company did not have a returns procedure in place. I was first told to take it to the Post Office. It is a bulky item and this was not easy. The Post Office rejected it.
Summary: I just received my roomba 581 today and to be honest I was skeptical as to whether it would be any good or just another gadget I didn't really need and would kick myself for buying. Well, it is amazing. I am super fussy with my house and it being immaculate at all times.
Summary: This machine is not for longer haired dogs to be fair. Our collies' hair clogs up the brushes too easily for it to be excellent. Also realised you need to start from a reasonably clean floor for greatest efficiency. But now ....
Summary: Yes it's good if you want a new toy.... if you are a gadget fan you'll definately appreciate it - but its far from 'intelligent' and spends most of its time messing around under the sofa and driving around the same obstacles over and over again.
Summary: Have had it for a week now and haven't used the old hoover since. Saves the time I hoped it would and actually think it cleans better on the laminates around our house than the old hoover. Well worth the investment.
