Amazon user reviews of the Koolvac

In this article, iRobot’s attorney discusses the Koolvac’s close similarity to the Roomba: “The cleaning mechanisms, sensors, look and feel and even the sound of their product mimics Roomba.” Helen Greiner, the chairman of iRobot, says the Koolvac “has a pretty good design — because it’s ours.”
