"Let Roomba do the Work for You"4.5 starson by jimcoco
Pros: Easy to use, does a good job cleaning
Cons: Costs nearly $300
Summary: Does this vacuum work? Yes, just look at the debris and dust bins inside Roomba after every use, and you'll see how well this vacuum works.I purchased this vacuum for my wife to help keep the house clean. Before Roomba, she would sweep much of the house every 1-2 days. Now, she lets Roomba do most of the work. Our home is a single story with 2,100 square feet. It only has about 300 sq.ft. of carpet, and the rest is hardwood and tile. We do have quite a few area rugs. Roomba works well on both medium thick carpet and hard floors, but it is faster on hardfloors and able to cover more area on one charge (about 800 sq. ft.) The virtual walls are very helpful to block off low use rooms that don't have doors (like living rooms). My wife especially likes that fact that Roomba goes under the sofas and beds. We have two cats, and the Roomba pulled a lot of cat hair and dirt from under the sofas. The family room smells better after roomba has been there.
