What the community says about iRobot Roomba 880
- "The iRobot Roomba 880 has saved me so much time with housekeeping, I couldn't be happier! Using this Roomba feels like living in the future: it is sleek and elegant and oh-so-powerful. It never has navigation problems and I feel like even the smallest and finest dirt gets picked up, so much so that my allergies have even gotten better. Incredibly easy to set up, too: anyone can do it."
- "This vacuum is quite good for a small apartment. I have two cats and hardwood flooring so it picked up really well. It's small but sturdy and moves around with ease. We have two bath mats that it works well on as well. I like that i can move furniture around and it still finds it way around. It's lightweight so i can carry with ease if need be. It also helps with dust and things of that nature. We live in an area that was farm land at one point so the dust can be a lot at times but this vacuum has reduced a lot of that for us. A great product for a great price. "
- "I have two dogs and two long haired cats. I cannot keep up with the hair on my wood floors. I bought the iRobot Roomba 880 around xmas time. It was a black friday deal. OMG, I love this thing. I run it every night while I sleep and wake up to clean floors. This vacuum saves me so much time. I was having to vacuum twice a day. I still vacuum twice a week to get the dusty corner stuff, but this is amazing""We all think of "Roomba" immediately upon hearing the phrase "robot cleaner", right? Right. The 880 introduces room navigation to help control which rooms are vacuumed, and is better at dealing with debris than some older models. And as is pretty much standard for Roombas it goes back to its base to charge itself and does a great job finding all the dust and crumbs."
- "iRobot or any other type of robot automation of vacumming is extremely dangerous! The first one I had used was horrible at picking up the cluster on the ground in general. The worst part was that one day when I came home, It had sucked up the cats tail! How incredible is that? a vacuum that does it job when i'm gone, with not enough suction power to pickup the dirt and such, however manages to defend itself from attacks by my cat?"
- ""Using the Roomba instead of a regular vacuum will save you some physical effort. But it will not save you any time, and it will cost you much, much more money. This is because the Roomba requires that you prepare the floors for it, and then it requires you to be there and supervise it while it cleans. And it takes much longer to clean than just a person using a normal vacuum. With the Roomba, you end up paying for supplies, because it was purposefully designed so that you keep buying replacement parts for it. The intelligent thing about the Roomba is that it is able to detect dirtier spots on carpet and to spend more time on them than elsewhere. Other than that, this is basically a vacuum that you do not have to hold yourself. It is *not* autonomous. It has a number of pesky problems that keep occurring: - Requires supervision; cannot be simply programmed and left to work by itself. It gets lost or stuck. Therefore, it does not really save you time. - Requires that you first clean your floors from all kinds of objects that it sometimes avoids, sometimes tries to chew up (toys, cords, etc.) - It cannot find the charging station, or it finds it but fails to dock. This happens despite following manufacturer instructions closely. - It gets stuck under dressers or nightstands that have short legs. It slips partially underneath them and gets stuck. - It confuses dark lines on carpet with stairs and refuses to cross them. - It is designed with the business plan of requiring customers to pay over and over again for consumables, including filters, brushes, and batteries (the batteries do not to last through many recharging cycles)." - Paul [Verified Purchase]"
