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's Scooba 450 looks like a Roomba, cleans like a mop

 

In a market flooded with lackluster light-duty mops, iRobot's high-powered Scooba 450 floor-cleaning robot shines.

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.

iRobot Scooba 450

 

It's winter, we're on a farm, and we have two mucky dogs and a constant succession of couriers with muddy boots popping in. Mopping the kitchen floor is a daily task at this time of year. Enter the iRobot Scooba 450 floor-scrubbing robot – but how will...

An expensive yet effective floor-scrubbing robot for when manual mopping is just too much hassle.

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...

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...

This machine seems confused. misses sections.Bad navigation

 

This machine sometimes does not finish the job. I just watched it lay down fluid on my kitchen hardwood floor, over and over without ever doing the the very important squeegee and vacuum part. Scooba left the water on the floor and announced it was...

Not as awesome as the Roomba, but still pretty cool.

 

I LOVE the Roomba, so obviously I was very excited to add the Scoomba to my work force at the house. It works great for small rooms ie: bathroom, kitchen, hallway. In large rooms however, it doesn't seem to clean as well. By the time it gets back to...
