Rated 5 out of 5 by Rodney This 650 is awesome!!!!!
I thought we had a pretty clean house. I was wrong ! This unit cleaned under the beds,dressers,bedside tables,coffee tables,sofas,chairs, and everywhere else that we never vacuum,and it was amazing how much dust and other "stuff" it picked up. We don't have even have pets in the house and I've emptied a FULL bin multiple times in 3 days. It's nice to just put it in a room and close the door behind it and let it do it's thing for 30 mins or so. We're amazed at how much dust and carpet fibers this thing has picked up over the past couple of days.I can't comment on the the long term durability of this unit yet, but on my first impression, this thing rocks!!! The brushes do need to be cleaned of long hairs occasionally, but overall I couldn't be more happy with the purchase. It is outstanding on hardwood and tile floors and does a pretty good job on thick carpet. If this unit continues to perform like it has initially, we'll never be without one again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mary Great investment!!
This machine is everything I hoped for! I work 10 1/2 hour shifts while going to school full time, so vacuuming is not what I want to do with my free time! Not to mention I have 3 dogs and 2 cats!! (I love them but oh my gosh the hair) I used to spend at least 4 hours trying to vacuuming my house and eventually giving up before I got done with the living and kitchen. Now I simply turn roomba on and then empty him at the end of his cycle. My house has never been so pet hair free! I do turn him on daily but pushing a button is nothing compared to manual labor. I do not have any carpet so I am not sure how well it would work on that but I do have hard floors and it works perfectly. If I want a certain room spotless quickly I just use the virtual wall! Roomba is worth every penny! For the people who are saying negative things they must not be very busy people and can stare at their floor to see if it's "spotless".... Roomba does a better job than I do!

I bought the original Roomba Discovery. Doesn't sweep anymore, but still vacuums. Uses a Series 400 battery. Then bought a Dirt Dog Roomba Sweeps, no vacuum. goes in the garage under the cars. Great product but discontinued. Then bought Red top Professional series, came with a small suitcase full of spare parts. Then was given a Black series 600.. Bought lithium batteries for both from another company. Runs three times longer but you have to dump the dirt bin. The original design had a bin and a filter to clean, but the Aeroforce is the best. One big bin, wash the filter, use Dawn soft bristle brush and let dry. I don't want the 800 series and up with their small hepa filter. I converted my Red Top Proffessional from the old style filter and bin design. Just buy the Aeroforce bin assembly and put it on. Have a 4,800 sq. ft. home. Use 2 at a time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bob I would recommend this to a friend
Does a great job sweeping but is loud and bumps into dark thing. Also, it's easy to use, just hit clean and it will start cleaning. If you hit dock it might take 5 minutes but it will find its way back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doggie Owner Trust Me, You Need This
If you have a pet, you need this. If you don't, you still need this. I program it to vaccuum everyday while I'm at work, come home, empty the full bin quickly, and the house has much less dog hair! It may not get the whole floor perfectly clean everyday, but if you schedule it to run daily it will clean the whole floor and keep it clean over time. And I have to give BIG kudos for the customer service of iRobot, I am glad I purchased directly through them. They will help you with any problems or questions, and from my experience go above and beyond your expectations. I have had mine over a year, and did a bit of maintenance on the vaccuum recently. Everything is easy to replace and switch out, including the brushes, filter, bins, even wheels. After a year my robot is working the same as brand new with minimal maintenance costs. I didn't have to perform the replacements (they were all still working), but I want to keep it working like new because I love this thing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by feisty_girl I'd trade my husband before my Roomba...
I cannot imagine life without Roomba. I've had various models over the last 8 years and have to say this model seems to be the best all-around. It's reliable, cleans well, large dust bin and able to schedule. We have one old yellow lab that sheds constantly, and 2 cats one of which is a Maine Coon cat; so needless to say we have a lot of pet hair. Moe is scheduled to run every morning around 4am so when I get up at 6am, my kitchen, dining and living room is clean; it is the best way to start my day. I clean the dust bin and brushes daily and am always amazed at how much dirt/hair/stuff he picks up! It's also good in that it promotes good cleaning habits, my 5 year old learned early on that she needs to pick up all her toys every night before bed so Moe doesn't get them. My experience with irobot's customer service has always been hassle free. The only way they could improve this product is to extend the warranty beyond a year; I've had a couple that "died" after 1-1/2 to 2 years of use, which is the reason for 4 stars not 5.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jim Shavalian I Am Very Disappointed!
I purchased the Roomba 650 to clean my floors. It keeps slamming into my furniture non stop to the point where it has scrached the wooden legs of my new dining room table/chairs. It also manages to get itself stuck on a very thin beam on my coffee table. I'm very disappointed & I know that IRobot will not help me in any way. I'm just going to wait for the Dyson 360 Eye to come out.
