This robot cleaner is my second Roomba and in comparison it is 1000% better than the old one from years ago. So if you had one of the first Roomba vacuums don’t judge the efficiency by that one. My very first Roomba malfunctioned after a couple of years and I had to return to vacuuming with the big vac. We recently rescued a 2 yr old yellow lab who sheds with each step so I was constantly dragging out my big vacuum, While shoving that thing back and forth and wishing I was doing something else, I decided to try a robot vacuum cleaner again. I tried a different brand thinking that Roomba’s price was too high and because of good reviews, unfortunately that ones does poorly on the area rug in the living room where I really needed to have hair picked up. However it does a good job on my tile floors in the kitchen so I may keep it just to do those floors since it helps keep up with the dog hair and has a remote control that gives me some control over where it goes.

Pros
Roomba 960 does a good job on both carpet, hard surface floors to clean up dog hair and debris.
Roomba 960 cleans under my bed and couch that are more difficult to move around.
Roomba 960 has a very large bin to hold dirt and it was needed.
Roomba 960 has a handle to easily lift with one hand when I need to.
Roomba 960 is bigger and definitely more powerful than the one I had years ago and also the current competing brand that I have.
Roomba 960 can be started by pushing a button but the WIFI connection to and program on my iPhone works great and I love all the information it provides me
Roomba 960 can be scheduled for one time per day vacuuming.

Cons
Roomba can only be scheduled for one time per day of cleaning but can be used manually or by WIFI a second time or more.
Roomba 960 does not come with any cleaning tools but I have had no problems wiping the dust bin out and the rollers look easier to clean than a bristle brush
Roomba 960 does not have a remote control to let me guide the robot where I want it to go but over time I think it will clean all the areas that I want cleaned (that a robot cleaner can get too)

Just like dishwashers, even top of the line dishwashers, can not clean everything, neither can the Roomba. Just like with a dishwasher, there will be an occasional need for a person to do areas that dishwasher and robot vacuum can not do. As long as I remember that, I believe the Roomba will be a perfect robot to help me keep my home cleaner and clearer of dog hair.

I will probably run Roomba at least twice a day in our living room where the dog sheds on the carpet. I wish it could be scheduled for twice a day instead on one time per day but it is a small inconvenience.

UPDATE: After running this roomba at least twice daily, I must say I am pleased to see cleaner floors each day. I also run my cheaper ILIFE robot vacuum on the kitchen tiled floor to cut down on tracking dog hair into other rooms. NO ROBOT VACUUM can totally clean up dog hair as good as my old Shark cordless sweeper vacuum. Even after running Roomba 960 twice, there is still dog hair on my textured 8×10 rug. But, my little old Shark cleans up what Roomba leaves behind! When I replace one of my robot vacuums it will be with a Shark robot vacuum.
