Rated 3 out of 5 by Steven K. Great product but gets stuck in or under things... a lot!
I really do love my Roomba 650, it does a great job cleaning when it doesn't get stuck either under the couch or rug (light layered rugs). We use to run it 4-5 times a week but we constantly came home to it either trapped in a closet with some sort of fabric/iPhone charger tangled in the cleaning head or it trapped in a room where it circled until the battery ran out because it closed the door on itself. I wish there was an option to upgrade the cleaning head to the non-tangle ones that higher end models have. I think if I knew that it would get wrapped up in things so often, I probably would have spent a little more money and got a nicer model with the new tracking system and tangle free cleaner. All in all, it still sweeps up more than I do when Im sitting on the couch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pica123 I love this machine!
I love my new roomba 650. It seems to have more power than the older model it replaced. I am so pleased with this machine. It makes house cleaning so much easier.

I finally bought this last week after a lot of research. We are a three person and a dog household. Two of us are Seniors and two are disabled and it has become difficult to keep up. I've been running it every day, overnight in the living area and morning in the bedroom area. This eliminates the noise annoyance. I'm amazed at how much it picks up, especially the dog hair. It also picked up a lot of the dust after the dust storm we had the other day, that surprised me. Having it go under the couch, beds and entertainment center has certainly made my job easier. It makes me laugh to see the dog watching it approach then finally getting up and moving. I was concerned that it would bother her but she seems to enjoy it as much as I do. It's a wonderful product.

So far so good. Easy to setup and clean and works quite well. You have to make sure your floor is free of cords, cables, cat toys, baby toys along with other small objects for the Roomba to work well.
You learn as you go and it's not hard to figure out. We have a baby who is constantly dropping crumbs on the ground and a cat who seems to always be coughing up furr. The Roomba scoops this up and has never made the floor look better on a daily basis.

I have an 800 sq.ft. apartment and my Roomba cleans all of it. Hard floors carpet it dose not mater the Roomba cleans it all, on a schedule and without any input or effort from me.

I have bigtime allergies & two shaggy dogs. This is my first Roomba & now have used it for about six months. It works for about an hour on each charge, does a great job of picking up pet hair & dirt. It's simple enough for my five-year-old to operate. Observations: 1. The Roomba only needs about 3.5 inches of overhead clearance on a bare floor, so it can get under beds, dressers, and chairs that other vacuums can't reach. It will clean along baseboards & under radiators. 2. The diameter is about 14" & it will pivot its way around, say, chair legs that it can't fit through. 3. It bumps against things gently, but the hard plastic case can scuff and mark furniture. I have stuck felt pads around the perimeter of my Roomba & that helps a lot. 4. The Roomba likes to be kept tidy itself. With every use, clear the dust bin, filter, brushes & wheels. Change the filter & brushes frequently for maximum efficiency. A clean Roomba is a happy Roomba.

I LOVE this product!!!! It is a real time saver!!! If someone calls and says they are stopping by I can quickly run it to make everything look nice. If you have chrome bottom pieces of furniture that the Roomba might roll over during cleaning make sure you block it from doing so(my table has legs that run along the floor under the coffee table) I wish I had known that, because it scratched my brand new table legs!!! I have 4 cats so I use it often. I do have to empty the dirt bin during cleaning so it probably wouldn't work for me to set the timer. I find that sometimes you need to use your real vacuum for a deeper cleaning if you have rugs. To answer the ladies question about cat litter----it works well on litter,but I would have to buy another one just to that area. Personally I wouldn't want it going over the bits of litter and then moving into other parts of my home(germs). Same as my large vacuum. I sweep the litter with a broom before I wash the floor. If you don't see it as an issue then it works great. The noise bugs my husband so i try and run it when he is out. All in all this is a product I can't so without. It is worth every penny!!!! Cat hair, bits on tile and carpet are gone and all you have to do is push a button.

We have 2 perennially shedding German Shepherds and tons of extremely fine sand, dust, pollen etc. Everything that drives people with allergies crazy. When we took the time to deep clean behind very heavy bedroom furniture, I was astounded that the area under the beds was pretty darn clean! Roomba keeps the dust mites, dog hair, sand etc. down to a minimum, and that gives me a tremendous relief when long hours prevent me from regular house cleaning. I could add that I am 65 this year and deep cleaning is harder than it used to be. Give Roomba to busy working people and see what a difference she makes in their lives. And yes, we talk to her...
