Check out this “good” review over at

I’ve got my Roomba!!!

Don’t leave home without one… cleaning your floors while you’re away, that is.

Reviews over at Newegg

Circumnavigating the obvious other comparisons to the rival robot cleaners, I can personally vouch for this cleaner.
I do know that this one is a lot shallower in depth than some of the others, and so I know I’m not too hesitant to jump over to another brand as I feel there will be several places that they won’t fit, as this one barely does.

I’ve owned mine for nearly three years. Still on the same battery. I’ve replaced the brushes (which are compatible with the 700 series if you fancy an upgrade).

Our house is a single level all hardwood and it’s admirably taken care of a huge dog fur problem.

I can’t think of another single household cleaning solution that changed our standard of living so easily. It was a real game changer.

We started out using the scheduler, but found it was easier in the end to simply turn it on on our way out.
It’s seen a little down time recently due to a new puppy in the house who wants to eat it whenever it moves, but now she’s nearly a year old and massive piles of fur are again beginning to mount up in the house, I think we’re ready to dive back in.

I paid 250 for my refurbished Roomba 560, so this is a bargain in my eyes.

Love, love, love my Roomba.

I have a cat and a best friend that is allergic to cats. She comes in my house without a problem with her allergies.

This is an appliance that you will not know how you lived without it after you have had it for a month.

Same Roomba available at nomorrack ( for same price, $2 shipping and no tax.

FYI, bought refurbished unit and have had nothing but problems with the virtual walls and dust bin. iRobot will not warranty the new-virtual walls.

I use a wooden yard stick. Works.

So, what would be the big differences (other than the refurbished part) between this 560 and the 650 that sells for between $350 and $399?

I have a love/hate relationship with Roomba/irobot.

We have owned a 700 series for about 2 1/2 years. During one of the scheduled daily cleanings, the ir sensor that helps return it to the base was ripped off. I contacted irobot and asked about a possible repair for the sensor. I was told they could not repair it, but would grant me 10% off my next purchase.

The price for the piece is probably $10 or less, yet they wanted me to spend around $400 to buy a new one instead. For shame irobot!

The roomba itself was a blessing when it worked correctly. We eventually had it repaired by someone on ebay. During the 3 to 4 months it was out of commission, we could definitely see a difference on our floors. Now that it is back in operation, I look forward to having clean floors again.

But a definite thumbs down to irobot and their customer service practices!

could someone explain me the warranty?

so if it croaks on the 100th day of purchase, does that mean im out 200 bux?

You can add a SquareTrade warranty if you like. There’s a link on the features page.

1 scooba, 2 Neatos. From my experience with the path navigation and cleaning, my pref is Neato. Having 2 cats and about 1800sqft of 1st floor hard wood floors, I’ll stick with what works. Love the ability to upgrade it’s firmware over the internet.

Does anyone happen to know how this one does on carpet? Most of my apartment is carpeted, with only the bathroom and kitchen uncarpeted, which both have a bit of a drop-off. I’m concerned that even if the unit does manage to make its way around the house through thick carpet, it might not be able to get back onto it after traveling onto the linoleum.

i see, so total would be 1year+90days. nice!

One time my Roomba starting cleaning and my dog had crapped on the floor. Roomba never worked the same after repeatedly running it over.

probably not.

Somebody had a Neato (I think) that ran over a pile of puppy pudding and proceeding to keep going, spreading it all over the floor.

Yeah, well. Sh*t happens.
