    Great but not perfect ***Downgraded Star Rating***

    My wife and I decided to get one of these because our 8 month old son is about to start crawling. While we try and keep our floors clean, our beagle has other thoughts as she sheds all over the place. We went with the latest 560 model as it has just about everything we would want with a product like this. It works as advertised and we will definitley keep it but there are some areas that need improvement. Here is a quick breakdown of the pros and consPros1. Quieter than a standard vaccuum2. Seems to learn the room dimensions quickly. The virtual walls and lighthouse feature are very nice.3. Is "smart" enough to avoid getting tangled in our area rugs4. Obviously easy to use as it is just a push of a button (or even better when you program it)5. Can use everyday to keep the floors spotless6. Have successfully used it on hard wood, vinyl, carpet and (accidently) concrete7. Cleans... 4/5 M. Kelley "mpkelley20" (MA United States) - See all my reviews, September 16, 2007

    A Worthy Successor to the Roomba Line

    We have two Roombas plus a Scooba in our house. When one of the batteries on one of our Roombas finally reached the end of its life cycle, we decided to donate that Roomba to a friend and to get ourselves the new top of the line - the Roomba 560. We got this right when it first came out, but we waited several months before posting a review. It's pretty much impossible to review one of these Roombas after only a few days! It takes weeks if not months to start to see how well they last over time, and what breaks down. Believe me - been there, done that.So now it's many months later, and I have to say, we are quite pleased with the improvements of this Roomba over the previous generations of Roombas. So first, for those who don't even have ANY Roomba yet (hard to believe!). Roombas are awesome. We have cats, and we work from home so we're home all day. It is AMAZING how much dirt and dust and junk collects in the carpet every single day. Who really has time to vacuum their... 5/5 Lisa Shea "be the change you wish to see in t... - See all my reviews, December 12, 2007

    Beware of the "new" Roomba 560 now only for single room (updated review)

    UPDATE 12/19/2011My review in late 2007 describing the red side brush "amputee" problem and poor customer support is still the highest rated critical response on Amazon. Because of that experience, the recounting of which is in the original review appended below after this update, I had not bought an iRobot product in over four years. Now I have bought two "new" 560s, which arrived today (more about "new" below). This update is primarily for (i) previous owners of a 560 that are contemplating buying a "new" 560 or (ii) those that have information on the original 560 and mistakenly believe that this is what they will get if they order a "new" 560.If it were not for the problems discussed in this update, I would raise my rating to 3.5 stars. Once again, I think iRobot may be shooting itself in the foot. And what upsets me is that I really want to see this company succeed.By way of disclosure I have owned several of every generation of Roomba.

    Amazing

    A year ago my wife and I bought a fairly large house with beautiful dark hardwood floors throughout. Now add nine (9) grandchildren and constant, never-ending construction in the backyard and you can imagine how difficult it has been to keep the floors clean. After researching all the usual suspects, we settled on the Roomba 595 because of that model's cost/benefit and the preponderance of very positive reviews. Although we were still skeptical, we thought we would give it a try because of the liberal return policy of Costco.Bottom-line after 2 weeks of us getting acquainted with Olga...she is simply amazing. I say get acquainted because it took some time to discover her idiosyncrasies. Here are some of our observations and conclusions.* Spend a couple of minutes picking up small loose items such as trash cans, cords, and chairs. Although she can maneuver around them, she works better when she has room to move.* Keep her empty and clean.

    Roomba 500 Series Review

    I have read so many reviews for the Roomba & Scooba and I have found so many people have so many great things to say and others say it's just OK, while some hate it.I'm here to set the record straight on these Robots. First off, I don't work for get compensated from iRobot nor do I sell them.Here's the low down on the Roomba. There are many different models sold by different stores, Sams Club, Costco, iRobot Direct or other retailers. Some of them are the same model, just come with extra virtual walls, filters, brushes etc. I have owned 3 different model Roomba's all in the 500 series line. I returned my first one because it was white and I really wanted a black one but could not find it anywhere. OK, so I'm biased on the color of my electronics, yes, I like all black electronics in my home. The second was returned after I found another 500 series black one that had a built in scheduler which is a MUST HAVE in my opinion if you truly want to automate... 5/5 Andrew (Fort Lauderdale, FL USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Irobot Roomba 595 Series I have read so many reviews for the Roomba & Scooba and I have found so many people have so many great things to say and others say it's just OK, while some hate it.I'm here to set the record straight on these Robots.

    Roombaaaa!

    0 5/5 Goki - See all my reviews This review is from: Irobot Roomba 595 Series I bought this item from Costco for less price and I should say I am satisfied more than I was expecting. It works as it is advertised and as being a computer scientist I find the AI algorithm that makes it a "robot" very smart and consistent. Recommendations to buyers:*Before running the first time do your own usual vacuum cleaning.*Before running the robot do some tiny plannings like where to put virtual doors in order to share the whole house into separate tasks.*Try to be careful about items on the floor before start using. In fact this pushes people living in the house to be well organized all time. I think this is one of the parts of the game :)* I prefer to clean it every three days.* Run it every day. But each run per day should be a small area or one roomMe and my wife are not doing vacuum cleaning anymore since roomba takes care of it when we are not at home... 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 27, 2012

    Works as advertised, which is very well!

    0 5/5 David Pfeffer (Annandale NJ, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) The Virtual Wall Lighthouse is amazing, turning on and off with the Roomba 500 series via RF. I use a network of 5 of these to keep my Roomba out of the bathroom and to let it know which rooms are which.Definitely get these over the plain old manually-activated virtual walls. You'll forget to turn them off and they eat batteries. Also, the lighthouse works with rechargeable batteries and the manual ones don't. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 12, 2008
