Rated 5 out of 5 by Lawdogman We LOVE our iRobot Roomba 650
We have only been using our Roomba 650 for about a month, but so far we are very impressed. It does a great job of cleaning our floors - carpeted, bare/hardwood and rugs. We find it particularly valuable for keeping debris off the hardwood (we have 4 cats and a dog so the litter, hair and other small items add up). We do empty the bin pretty much daily given our active household, but it is quick and easy. When it is done cleaning it goes back to its base to charge. It almost never gets stranded away from it's base. We have not yet begun to use the timer feature since my wife is at home during the day so we will have to play with that next. Overall, we feel it does a very good job of keeping all of the floors clean. Maybe the biggest bonus of all is that it is fun to watch! It is now a member of the family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MTNestercreations Love my Roomba
I have arthritis and have been looking for ways to lighten my load on housework. I bought the Roomba hoping it would work up to my expectations. I LOVE IT !!! I was able to program it myself the set up is so easy. Once programed it starts itself does the job and returns to its docking station. You can move the Roomba to another room push the clean button and she starts working for you. Move the docking station to another room and when she's done - home she goes. I think the maximum benefit would be to have one Roomba for each major area to clean. If this hold up over time, I fully expect to buy one for each major area of my home. So far it has worked as I had hoped, it has become a life saver allowing me to remain independent. Life offers us many challenges thankfully Life also offers many options for living.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AskPuddles He is like part of the family!
I absolutely love this guy. We call him Sven, because the name suits him.....Strong, Powerful, Determined. I read a lot of reviews and research before making my decision, so I knew what to expect. Also did everything according to the book. Let him charge for 24+ hours, lifted items off the floor that are lightweight and anything that I wanted to clean under. Used some of those items to create blocking point for area that has to be hand cleaned, but I made sure that he always had clear access to his charger. First time, took longer, because I had to decide what I wanted off floor and where to put it. Also, took Sven awhile to get to know his way around. Those problems are gone now. takes me a minute to pick up and move the item I want off floor and which ones to use as a barrier, then, push button. Sven goes for 90 minutes on the main floor....kitchen, dining room, large livingrm, bathroom and average size foyer....about 1,000 sq. ft. when he is done, he goes back to his charger, all by himself, lines up with it and backs right into it! like parking a car. my floors and area rugs are clean, under my chairs, i recline what I can and that gets all clean, even manages to get up to the level of tiles around my fireplace! he is alway full of dirt, dust and debris when he is done and nothing has been harmed, dented or chipped. I am pretty picky about keeping my house clean, and I have no complaints at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stuckonacupuncture Love it!
Cleans pretty good(considering we have 4 animals), and running it 3-5x/week keeps the floors nice and clean! Moves smoothly from the tile floors to the area rugs and does not fall of edges to the sunk in living room. Fairly easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JasJ does the entire downstairs of my house
This is an amazing vacuum for tiles, wood floors and low pile carpets. We have about 1500 square feet downstairs and it manages to cover it all. End of the run it goes back to homebase for recharging. We just empty the bin into the trash and it is ready to go. It has only got stuck once on a thin power cord and it beeped and 'asked for help'. Unwoumd the power cord and hit the clean button and it was off and running. As a side benefit, the cat thinks it is a new toy and chases it all the time for good exercise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nanaloves5 AWESOME PRODUCT!!
I absolutely LOVE my new iRobot! I have wanted one for so long and it went on sale, then JCPenney offered another 25% and I couldn't refuse!! The cleaning after each vacuum will take some getting use to, but it's worth it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by neil123 Great product with good value
I have dyson before I got my roomba. This roomba is much convenient, time saving and it can clean the corner much better than Dyson.
Although I still use dyson vacuum to clean up some area of my house, this roomba is absolutely a must. it helped me safe a lot of time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nickname477 So Far Seems Good!
We are pleased so far. We got the Roomba for our new dog that sheds terribly! It does pick up a lot of dog hair, but we have to empty it often. I do wish it would stay in one area (that we need more focus on), but we are still learning how to make it do that! It is nice to turn it on and let it go!! And our 4 year old son is fascinated with it as well!
