The charming, low-maintenance Roomba 790

 

iRobot's flagship vacuum bot is no light purchase, but it met most of our expectations.

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.

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...

The vacuuming power of the latest Roomba surpasses its predecessors. The virtual lighthouse beacons keep the robot in the high-traffic rooms, or keep them out of forbidden zones. Too small to harm its human owners during a robot uprising

Expensive for a second vacuum for all but the most ardent Roomba fans. I still can’t get my cat to sit on it while it cleans the house

iRobot Roomba 790 Vacuum Cleaning Robot

 

The Roomba 790 is even pricier than some of the best traditional vacuums on the market, but if you're as concerned about cleanliness as much as you hate to clean, consider it money well spent.

Effective cleaning capability. Easy to use and clean up. Wireless Command Center allows you to control the Roomba from another room.

Very expensive. Can get tripped up on wires.

The Command Center has five primary functions. Most importantly, it allows you to initiate cleaning just by pressing the Clean button, so you can start up your Roomba no matter what room you're in. You can also use it to schedule cleaning, send the...
