iRobot Roomba 530


Meet the iRobot Roomba 530: a handy little robo vacuum cleaner

Fast, good at untangling itself, high charging base return rate, voice alerts, detects dirtier spots

Only one sweeper, noisy

The iRobot Roomba 530 robot vacuum cleaner is a handy little home appliance that sweeps and sucks up mess while comically zipping around your home, bumping into things and being awesome.

Works great and exactly as advertised.


I use this for daily cleaning on a laminate\/tile floor and a small amount of low and medium pile rugs. It does extremely well on these. It it fairly quiet for a vacuum. I would say it\'s quieter than a hairdrier on low, but louder than my range hood...

What a neat new tool!


Using it for hardwood, tile and carpeted areas. It works well on my wheelchair ramp, too. Amazed at how it gets around and under things. Being confined to a wheelchair, this tool makes routine vacuuming so much easier and is light enough to handle from...

This pet lover loves Roomba


The dog hair on our hardwood floors was constant and drove me crazy so I thought I would try a roomba to keep up between vacuming. I wish I had gotten one years ago! It is amazing and finds its way around each room. I wish it held more dirt\/hair b\/c...

A new friend of the family


Bought this primarily to clean the tile floor in my kitchen. After testing it in bedrooms of both hardwood and area rugs, and lots of obstacles, I was happy with the performance in this setting also.

keep the brushes and rollers clean or you will have a big problem

This is about the best thing we have ever used ; keep it charged and let it go when you need to clean

It is still running well now after 2 months If you have alot of hardwood floors and dont want to sweep anymore this is great.

Auto docks, cleans well on hardwood, disassembles easily, wont go down steps, virtual walls work well, naviagates around obstacles well. It does alright on dog hair ; Makes you feel like you live in the future

Not pwerful and bad on long hairs. This is more of a sweeping replacement, which is great on hardwood but you really dont get a deep clean on carpet. It also requires cleaning/maintenance regularly, I even had a hair ball in the gear box after 2...

Cool toy and cleaner


I really like this machine and I am happy I bought it.

This little guy picks up a lot of hair and detritus from the floor. Not as strong as a high power upright vacuum cleaner, but it does get a larger percent of lint, hair dust, etc. It is fun to watch and also fun to have clean rooms while you go to work...

If you live with people with long hair, expect have to clean the hair out of the brushes every time you use it
