    Dec 6, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: I do not have to do the work, freak out significant other
    Cons: Not perfect, but good enough

    Summary: Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a robot clean your house? Do you think that the reality of this is nothing more than a Jetson inspired dream? Guess again. The Rommba has arrived and it will make you life so much easier. ... read more

    Pros: It looks Cool-neat concept. I would really like it to work for me :(
    Cons: customer service is more concerned with making money than troubleshooting any problems with machine.

    Summary: I was given iRobot as a gift and called customer support for assistance on operation. I was expecting some help on my product, but I was shocked to see that instead of helping me with the problem they suggested I just buy a newer iRobot and throw mine ... read more

    Pros: Picks up loads of dirt, managing well around and over objects.
    Cons: hair/fur gets stuck on edges of rollers. needs to be cleared away fairly often. 

    Summary: I've had it 3 or 4 weeks and I'm working it hard.  I took the advice of others and bought it from Hammacher Schlemmer so it has the life-time warranty.  I have a dog that sheds a lot, a cat, and a bird that throws feathers and seeds around, and ... read more

    Aug 20, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The initial anticipation of owning a robot vacuum with all its claims. 
    Cons: The Customer Service Department at iRobot is impotent and guilty of attempted fraud.

    Summary: In 2004 I purchased a Roomba Elite with great anticipation. Now, in 2009, my seldom-used Roomba has caused me more grief, time and energy than I can describe. Soon as I got it working, I discovered I could not use it on most of my floors because it got ... read more

    Pros: Quick, easy to clean out and use. Reasonable good job.
    Cons: None except worry about how long plastic parts that appear fragile will hold up.

    Summary: I have purchased two of these robots, for my homes in two different States. I have used the first one for six months and obviously liked it well enough to buy another. Yes, they are worth the price, especially when, like me, recovering from back ... read more

    Pros: -Cleans under things nicely -Autonomous cleaning
    Cons: -Floors need picking up first. -Doesn't do pet hair. -Didn't last long. -Can't be fixed.

    Summary: This review is being written a few years after the purchase. The wheel drop sensor on my original Roomba is now kaputt. There's no way to fix it even if I sent it in. They offered a 30% discount on new models. I have a problem with that because I ... read more

    Cons: Needs a bit of care, but it is WELL WORTH IT!

    Summary: I've had my Roomba over a month now, and with proper cleaning after a work session, it continues to vaccuum like a charm. The neighbors have come over to watch in awe, and some will soon be ordering their own. Most of the difficulties people have ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleans well on hardwood floor and under furniture. Needs little supervision while cleaning.
    Cons: Needs a lot of cleaning. Needs replacement parts after 4 months.

    Summary: I have had a Roomba Red for about 4 months now. It works great on the hardwood floor, but is not as effective on rugs/carpet. I find that all I have to do is clear the floors and let it go. It goes under the table and sofa which was a lot more difficult ... read more

    Pros: Works wonderfully for a short time.
    Cons: Almost certain to fail within a few months and become junk.

    Summary: Almost all positive reviews, whether from customers or magazines, come from short use. When I bought mine, I liked it so much that I bought two as gifts. Unfortunately, their useful life is very short. I bought mine about twenty months ago and with ... read more

    Pros: Ok, for light cleaning. Sports the "Cool" factor with Impressive cleaning algorithms
    Cons: Requires frequent cleaning of fouled brushes/sensors. Should include 4 "walls". Cords/tassels snag.

    Summary: iRobot is a good company and let me say I love the idea of the Roomba. It is a great toy and conversation piece but unfortunately it is not ready for prime time. Why do I say this? Primarily because if you have dirty dusty floors that really need to ... read more

    Cons: High dust areas require frequent internal cleanings. No big problem through. Click, click-you're done.

    Summary: I was a big skeptic of the roomba and its claims. I downloaded every video and read every review about this machine before I took the near $500.00(CAD) plunge into the robot vacuum business. Well, I could not be happier. I am absolutely thrilled with the ... read more

    Cons: Hard to get put together after cleaning it out
