iRobot Roomba 790


Introduction If you're going to let a semi-autonomous machine clean your floors, you'll want to enjoy living with it. With a retail price of $699, the iRobot Roomba 790 is the second most expensive of the robot vacuum cleaners we've reviewed so far....

The charming Roomba 790 cleans your home reasonably well, requiring little human intervention past programming and dustbin emptying.

Its navigational decision making sometimes results in longer cleaning cycles than you might want, and at $699 the Roomba 790 much more than some alternatives.

If price-point isn’t a factor and you’re looking for a robot vacuum to help you maintain multiple flooring types in your home, the Roomba 790 is an effective, low-maintenance purchase.

iRobot Roomba 650 review


We spent a week lazing around while the new iRobot Roomba 650 tirelessly cleaned our house. The model we reviewed falls into the mid-range of robot vacuum technology; low-end models from competitors can be had for less than $100, while high-end units...

Cleans rooms while you sleep ; Powerful suction ; Easy to empty and maintain ; Navigates most surfaces and transitions without incident

Long charge times ; No battery meter on unit ; Only works well in clearly defined spaces

The 650 has some operational quirks and you'll probably want a traditional vacuum available for certain things, but it's an effective and entertaining floor cleaning option.

It Might Not Be the Robot We Want, But It’s the Robot We Deserve


The Roomba utility robot has been sweeping our floors for 10 years, and while the basic task it performs has remained the same, the famous vacuuming disk has gotten smarter.

Review: iRobot Roomba Pet Series 532


While I vacuum my living area on a regular basis, I rather not. Who likes to vacuum? I'm somewhat of a neat freak so having clean carpets is important to me. I've always considered buying a Roomba to help eradicate this chore from my life, and when...

Review: iRobot Roomba 560


For years I have seen the commercial for Roombas on TV, and honestly, I thought it was a scam. I always thought to myself that these things don't clean good, or they won't clean the entire floor. I had a lot of doubt in the product and never really...

Roomba Vacuums Its Way Into Our Hearts – the iRobot Roomba Review


I have never been a fan of vacuuming in fact I have gone through many many vacuums because they weren't powerful enough or I felt they didn't clean well. Besides that, as much as I do want to Vacuum I never get around to it because I'm too busy! Well...

Cleans on its own just set a schedule, leaves floors extra shiny, returns to base when it’s done. It's a ROBOT

Doesn't handle long hair to well gets tangled in all wheels and brushes. The better models could be a bit pricey and hard to prove for the price its better than some of the larger competitors

When I left the Roomba alone to do its thing it did a great job. It had gone under my bed and into my kitchen and cleaned in all sorts of weird spots and it was even pushing some of my furniture around to collect the dirt. My wood floors were left...

Review: iRobot Roomba 560


With two adults, two kids and a hairy dog tucked under one roof, it's not surprising that the floors in my house get pretty grungy. Due to our household's busy schedule we don't always keep up with the floor cleaning as much as we probably should....

Model 560 comes with two "lighthouses" which are small modules that look like salt shakers and put out an infrared beam to create a barrier Roomba won't cross. In virtual wall mode it will keep Roomba confined to one room. In lighthouse mode it will...

Roomba 560


The Roomba 560 is a stellar robot vacuum with most of the features you'd want in a vacuum cleaner. It has multi-room navigation features, a comprehensive cleaning pattern that goes over areas more than once, and a 90-minute run time. We were...

The unit can run for 90 minutes uninterrupted before it will need to be charged again

The included filters aren’t HEPA filters

Newer doesn’t necessarily mean better – the Roomba 560 has just as many features as its newer counterparts at a lower price point.
