iRobot Scooba 450 review

 

iRobot's Scooba cuts the work out of mopping and does a shockingly thorough job, making it an excellent investment if you value your time and demand squeaky-clean floors.

All things considered, there’s a lot to love about this bot. It’s ridiculously simple to use, it cleans floors thoroughly, and it only requires a small amount of effort to set up before each use. No matter how you look at it, Scooba is a...

iRobot Scooba 450

 

The iRobot Scooba 450 looks a lot like iRobot's Roomba robot vacuums. They share the same disk-like shape and color detail, have similar handles for easy lifting, and even operate via the same iAdapt navigation algorithm. But the Scooba 450 has...

iRobot's $600 Scooba 450 really can replace your old mop and bucket. Separate tanks mean that dirty water doesn't get recycled back onto your floors.

Its battery is only good for 40 minutes, (roughly 300 square feet of cleaning) and it has a 2-hour charge time. There's no automated scheduling or charging dock, and the Scooba's rounded shape can't clean corners. At all.

iRobot's Scooba 450 isn't perfect, but it's a solid, albeit pricy, choice for small space cleaning.

iRobot Scooba 450

 

It's no small investment, but the iRobot Scooba 450 is a very effective way to keep your floors sparkling without reaching for a mop and bucket.

Effective cleaning. Easy to use. Speaks audible cues

Pricey. Loud. Requires some manual labor to keep clean

Vacuum robots are great for picking up physical debris and pet hair tumbleweeds, but they don't exactly leave your floors looking shiny and new the same way a good mopping will. If you've already grown accustomed to automated floor cleaning, though,...

iRobot Scooba 450 review

 

We go hands-on with iRobot's future of wet floor care - the Scooba 450

Our only concern is the price. As with the lowest Roomba 800 model, the Scooba 450 will retail for £600 when it launches in April later this year. It's certainly an incredibly smart device, but we'll have to wait and see whether it can justify its...

It's Ok

 

It does clean, the only thing I don't like is the majority of the water has to evaporate, and does not get picked up by the Scooba. At the most it my pick up 4 ounces..

Clean floors!

 

I bought this for my wife (she asked) for Christmas/Birthday present. We were worried at first because the Scooba left a lot of standing water, but after a quick update, it works great! We are both pleased with our clean floors!

Poor quality, leaves water, incessant warnings

 

I would not recommend buying the Scooba. One of my main reasons for purchasing the Scooba was to save time; unfortunately, it does not save me very much time. I have had to set it up (5 min.), go to its rescue because it became lodged under furniture...
