Best thing I’ve ever bought

This has been my first experience with a roomba, and it is a determined little cleaner! I have friends who have had them for years, but I never paid much attention. This 860 cleans better, and in more unreachable places than I ever could! Seriously folks, if you are researching and thinking about it, go ahead and pull the trigger. You probably won’t read another review like mine, so stay tuned. We pulled up all of our carpet a couple of years ago (thanks to our sweet puppies), which revealed some 1950’s style hardwood floors. They still have varnish on them, but they also have some dark spots and melted carpet pad which we tried to scrape up. I have a bad back, and my husband has bad knees, so we basically don’t do floors. I’m serious, we don’t do them. About once every 3 months my husband runs a vacuum over them at break-neck speed, which does very little for the cause. When I got the 860 I charged it overnight, and I actually swept a little. I even moved a little furniture. When I first started it, like everyone else, I followed it around watching it clean. It went back to it’s charger after 10 minutes because the bin was full!

but I love it!

I was very skeptical about this Roomba for years, but got some money for my birthday and decided to see if it was everything it was hyped about. I have 2 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and they SHED! So, I was constantly pulling out the Dyson Animal to get rid of the dog hair. Since getting the Roomba, everything has changed! I joked with my sister, that my “life has changed”! It is hyperbole, but it’s actually true. I turn on the Roomba and it just goes and cleans… period…. I pick up the dog’s food/water bowls and shut the doors where I don’t want it to go into, and it just vacuums for hours! And when the battery gets low, it re-docks itself to the base, so it can recharge.. You can schedule it to start whenever you want, so it’ll run whenever you want. I, unfortunately scheduled it to start at 12am and it woke me up, so haven’t rescheduled it yet. Here is something you need to know… Positive: this vacuum cleans in places that your normal vacuum can not go. IE: under sofas, dressers, beds… places that my Dyson upright can not go….Because it goes where no other vacuum usually goes the negative is….Negative: The dust bin needs to be cleaned more often.

Worth the price tag

So far loving it. Can’t imagine living without it now. We initially tried LESHP Robot Vacuum Cleaner by minsu which was $180. We returned that one for multiple reasons such as bad AI, constantly bumped and pushed furniture like our upright lamp which was a major concern. Decided to give this a try and see if the algorithms were the same. Although almost 3x the price, I find it is definitely worth it. The cleaning paths seems to be more sophisticated and it does not push our furniture around like the Minsu. It taps our upright lamp and rather than push it, it starts vacuuming around it. The battery life is more than enough to clean our living room, dining room, kitchen, and den which are all hardwood floors with some area carpet. I believe it is about 900sq ft. I was a bit concern about the size of the dirt bin, it is not so bad once you start running regularly such as once every other day. Not having a control remote is actually nice, less remote to deal with. I haven’t tried the schedule since we usually just press the clean button when we feel it is time for a vacuum. One of the big issues I hear from some people is about spot cleaning with robots, especially without remote control.

If you have a dog that sheds or has dandruff, or live in a dusty area, DO NOT HESITATE! GET THIS NOW!

THE BEST DECISION WE HAVE MADE FOR OUR NEW PLACE!!!!! I’ve been wanting a Roomba ever since we moved into our apartment! It’s not a big space, 550sqft of hard wood flooring and 100sqft of carpet in our balcony/patio. At first I couldn’t fathom to spend the money because our place was already small, and I had no excuse to just sweep myself everyday instead of spending X amount of money. A little background about us: We have the most adorable french bulldog that loves to bless our floor with hundreds probably thousands of fur strands a day. And it’s not just him, it’s me and the environment too! We live in Honolulu, Hawaii near the beach, and our place gets more dusty than what I’m used to back home in California, plus I have a ton of hairfall which isn’t the most appealing either. But I thought, so what? We don’t need a Roomba. We don’t make a ton of money and this robot isn’t something we need anyway. So for the first few months I was sweeping almost daily, using a handheld vacuum (

Major flaw transitioning from hardwood to area rug

This is a good midrange robot vacuum. The cleaning power is very good and it is quieter than I expected. It is easy to operate and reasonably durable. It picks up pet hair without any problem and does an excellent job under the furniture. The problem with the one I received is that it would not transition from a hardwood floor to an area rug that is less than 1/2 inch thick. (See attached photo) When it got stuck it would not display an error message, it would just bump into the rug, spin around and try to find another route. The main purpose of a robot vacuum is unattended maintenance cleaning. If I have to pick up the vacuum to move it from hardwood to carpet, it defeats the purpose of a robot vacuum….hence the two stars. I will be returning this unit and ordering a replacement. Hopefully the one I have is defective and the new one will function as it should.

Truth be told, at first, I wasn’t sure if I was going to keep the Roomba. I found myself following it; becoming annoyed when it went over the same spot 101 times and ignoring others; bumping hard into furniture; getting stuck (he went under the treadmill at the high end and got stuck coming out of the low end). My husband said I might just as well vacuum myself! Then I read dozens of reviews and decided, those people are doing it right (thank you) and I had to chill! After investing some $500, I invested more; bought 2 more lasers and rubber bumpers. Yes, for the money, they should have come with it! Now I laser areas where he could get into trouble and no longer worry about the furniture getting scratched. If he goes over the same spot multiple times, I am confident he will do the other areas before he docks or even the next day. I hate dusty floors but do not feel like cleaning every day. Now, Buster does it for me at least 5 days a week. I empty the filter every day and I am always pleasantly surprised with the amount of dirt and hair in it. I have even cleaned the hardwood floors with the dust mop after Buster is done and there was no dust on the mop!
