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: 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: 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: 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.
Summary: Wow, what a fantastic product. The idea of a robot cleaner really appealed to me but I was a little dubious about its effectiveness and I bought it bassed on the positive reviews I read - I needn't have worried - it's fab-u-lous darlings!!! I've named mine Brian..
Summary: Within ten minutes of using it I wished I'd bought it years ago. I agree with the instructions - you must prepare the room eg pick up big bits rubbish, such as a till receipt. In dining room "he" is faster if I put a couple of chairs up on table to help "him" negotiate legs.
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: Well made clever bit of time saving kit. Does not replace a full size vacuum but in my home it reduces the use of one by 90%. Cleans solid floors and carpets very well. No proplem with quite thick rugs as it always seems to find an angle to climb the edge.
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.
