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: 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.
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: 1. Less than 24 hours delivery time - excellent seller. Robot does the job exactly as advertised. Even the wife and the dog are surprised. I can recommend the item for everyone who hates boring hoovering jobs. It is fun to watch the machine as well.
Very good cleaner but It's lost moving around my flat

Summary: Cleans efficacy but even with the lighthouses it does not move properly around. If you are not supervising the cleaning the iRobot miss rooms. It miss a navigation system. I think if I could choose again I had chosen the Samsung model that has the navigation system cleaning around very precisely.
