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 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...

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dectech06 Love this machine
I have two dogs and a cat indoors and out. "Robocop" picks up a ton of pet hair each and every day. I didn't realize how dusty my hardwood floors actually were. They started to shine after about the third day of use. My furniture is also a lot less dusty. No matter how many times I tried to make myself, I simply could not/would not vacuum every day. Now, all I do is schedule the time each day and let "Robocop" do the work.

Very pleased with my purchase of the IRobot Roomba 650 Vacuum Cleaner. I have debated spending the money for quite some time. However, this was a great investment for home cleaning. Thank you for the speedy delivery too!

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.

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!
