Excellent .... with some preperation, 01 Feb 2012
Mr Nick G (London, UK)
Had the Roomba for a couple of weeks now and very impressed. As ever there are some negatives as well as positives.
Start with the downside: - I'm male, work far too many hours, have kids at the weekend - so this gadget will just come in and clean all the rooms for me when I am out right ? No - Any device of this kind will use an algorithm - and even the more expensive models such as this (better alogrithm to clean the floor) will perform better the less obstacles there are. Therefore the rooms need preperation. As far as possible take out all chairs, coffee tables, kids toys etc - It's needs to be monitored. You don't need to look at it continuously - but it can and does get stuck. Wires especially cause havoc. You do learn what it's faults are though so this can be overcome. - The lighthouses are great (tells it which room to go into next) - but there are only two. - There's no question it is quicker to get out the vacuum and do it yourself
However - once you get used to keeping things reasonably tidy and you know what the pitfalls are - it does what it does VERY well. Super clean floors. Nice 'spot' function to do specific areas and it deals with corners, table legs etc with ease. 5 stars because it never claims to pick up the kids toys and tidy up - it's supposed to clean the floor and it does that to a level which is excellent..
