Pros Cleans great - no worries
Cons Somewhat loud in a small house
Summary This thing works great. We have two young boys and the kitchen floor is always a train wreck after dinner. Mopping was always a pain and we would fall behind in the responsibility. Now we just set up Scooba and away we go. The downside is the noise - we live in a smaller house, so we have to turn the TV volume up a bit. Cleaning up Scooba is very easy too. We use both the Clorox/Scooba cleaning fluid and Distilled white vinegar. Both work great.
Pros When it works, it's great!
Cons Virtual walls stopped working in 1st 6 mths-no response. Battery issues-no response. Now liquid doesn't come out at all & still no response.
Summary Maybe I just got a lemon but all this has happened in the 9 months since I bought it. Have Roomba too and no problems with it.
Pros Cleans very well, good with kitchen tiles and stuck on messes.
Cons Sometimes doesn't go over spots enough, have to clean/empty alot of things after cleaning.
Summary We purchased this about 2 months ago after my sister praised this little robot to death. And with it for 160 dollars on woot.com, we couldn't pass up the deal after being so pleased with the roomba.
It runs well, and it is pretty good at scrubbing the floors. But due to its algorithm, it sometimes misses a spot here and there, and I have to go back and use the spot clean, or if I am feeling lazy, I will just run it again.
It runs pretty quite, and the dirty water shows how well it does clean, even if the floors don't appear that dirty.
However, it sometimes can be a pain when your in a hurry to empty the tank, the tubing, the filter, and make sure you don't spill anything back onto the floor in the process. There is one small thing that gets water caught in it, and sometimes if you take the tank out weird, it will just drop dirty water all over the floor.
All in all this unit is a pretty good floor cleaner and keeps our usually very dirty floors relatively clean. If you can get a good price on it, it is well worth it. Plus if you get a few discount coupons, you can get 10 bottles of cleaning solution for about 30 dollars shipped(which will last you quite a while).

Pros It cleans while I loaf, does a great job with tile floors
Cons It doesn't pick up tough dried food stains
Summary It doesn't replace a scrub brush but it does keep the floor from needing a scrub brush. You have to moisten and scrub dried stains but if used regularly, you won't have tough old stains. It does a great job on our tile. When we did it with a mop we always got a haze but Scooba cleaned it without leaving a haze. Probably because it doesn't reuse dirty water like using a mop.
Pros Nice Cleaning Job
Cons Very smelly solution. Can't use it in our house. On well...
Summary Got my Scooba today, will be sending it right back. We do not use smelly cleaning solutions in my house.
I had assumed I could just use water w/ the product - who cares about voiding the warranty - my right. Well, there is a sensor that detects for the product. Not only that, it is quite accurate. I tried 1/4 recommended, 1/2, 2/3, but would only work with the exact specified amount. Got a "check tank" error otherwise.
