Cute, easy to use, gets the job done

Takes too long to charge up, poor handling of steps

Vacuuming and Pet Entertainment Made Easy! Roomba Rocks!


Gets under my bed (wow!), cleans well, amusing for the pets.

Expensive, doesn't replace "deep" vacuuming power, requires some prep work.

iRobot Roomba Robotic Vacuum


My mom thinks I’m amazing! No, not because I’m talented or cute, but because I bought her the PERFECT gift for Mother’s Day this year! I bought her the Roomba—something I thought was a bit silly when I first heard about it a year ago. A...

Usable for impaired persons ; Works well enough for light cleaning ; Easy

Small dirt cup ; Won't work for those with clutter

iRobot Roomba Robotic Vacuum


Alright, I'll admit it. I'm a technophile. And I know what that means. I spend a lot of time online, I am comfortable on computers, and I watch the animated Dilbert cartoon on Comedy Central. Yep, I'm a dork. While you might not immediately...

Vacuums well, easy set up, high coolness factor

Mostly the same as normal vacuuming. See more below.

iRobot Roomba Robotic Vacuum


Hi, I'm Kristina. You may remember me from such films as "NSYNC: The Reunion Tour", "Epinions: Behind The Music", and most recently, "Karokee Xtinafh Style". I'm here today to tell you about the revolutionary floor vacuum blessed with the name,...

More entertaining than any other appliance you'll ever own.

Pricey! May miss a spot or two.

Roomba- How to Freak Out a Partner, Clean the House, and Save Time/ Hassle


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a robot clean your house? Do you think that the reality of this is nothing more than a Jetson inspired dream? Guess again. The Rommba has arrived and it will make you life so much easier.

I do not have to do the work, freak out significant other

Not perfect, but good enough

George Jetson would even like it!


I recently purchased a Roomba robot vacuum for $200 and I think it is well worth it as a vacuum and for the entertainment value. Roomba does a great job vacuuming up my carpet and my kitchen floor and it's a blast to watch. The first day I got mine,...

Does a great job vacuuming. A blast to watch.

60 minute run time. 12 hour recharge.

Va Va Va Roomba !!


I pushed for this category to be created, and had originally intended to be the first reviewer, but I wanted to get a little more acquainted with the product before throwing my two cents in. I've had my Roomba since the first of October, ordering it...

Neatest 'toy' on the block and it actually works as advertised.

Small dustbin. Long charge time. Maintenance issues.
