Makes life easier

Originally purchased from Target during a sale this robot vacuum is a great mid range offering. It cleans the general living areas (carpet & lino) more than adequately. I recommend emptying the bin & cleaning the device with a damp cloth after each job. Easy to manage through the app with notifications given for replacing parts, length of cleaning jobs, etc. I have purchased replacement parts on Ebay for a fraction of the cost compared to the Roomba website. Owning this product has reduced my housework load - a win! Show details

Waste of money

Not reliable. Only good in the first few months. Also, we weren’t told that the roomba recognizes dark colored carpets as “cliffs” what a joke. Not recommended at all. Show details

Exciting to start with but now getting frustrated

I bought the 670 model as it it was in my price range and had relatively good reviews on Choice. I set it to vacuum 3 days a week while I am at work. I have hybrid flooring throughout.
I learnt very quickly to move certain items to avoid the Roomba from become stuck or tangled. Some cleaning days it has stopped because battery has run out.
Some areas are not cleaned and some rooms are over cleaned. I am unable to set it up so that I can specify areas to clean.
I am unable to find anything on line that can help me.
Starting to think I should have spent a bit more money on a more reliable robo vac. Show details

Useless

Complete waste of money. Navigation is shockingly bad and gets stuck on chair legs. Choose another brand! Show details

Nice idea but misses the mark

I bought the Roomba a couple of weeks ago and have now used it 3 times.
I am pretty disappointed and a little scared to keep using it because it bashes really hard into my brand new skirtings. - I don’t want to damage my walls and skirtings to save time cleaning.
It also gets caught up in my dining chairs and bashes around my furniture.
I am worried it will damage my house with all the constant banging.
It seems to be missing spots also.
For the price I expected a much smoother effective product. Show details

Do not recommend

Extremely loud. Does not go everywhere, some places are missed. Never again!!! Battery is flat before finishes. It cleans only on tiles I close the bedrooms where the surface is carpet. Show details

Hello, I have replaced my 630 battery with a roomba certified battery.
I have not used the 630 for several months. WHen I tried again (after charging it), it started showing this behavior :
- Starts OK, leaves docking station
- rotates on itself, brushes starting, a little
- Stops and says "please charge roomba" + red light.

Tried so far, without any result :
- tested the battery with a tester (shows a good voltage, 14,5V)
- cleaned the contacts
- resetting battery (10 seconds on Spot + Dock)
- full reset (10 secs on Spot + Dock + Clean)

What else can I try ?

Details

Currently consisting of the iRobot Roomba 670 and 606, the constantly changing Roomba 600 Series has received an overall positive rating to date. The iRobot Roomba 606 is the more affordable option as it retails for $499, compared to $649 for the Roomba 670.

iRobot Roomba 606:

  • Its cleaning system combines vacuum suction with an Edge-Sweeping Brush to make closer contact with the floor and wall edges
  • Auto-adjust cleaning head adapts its height responsively to suit a variety of floor surfaces, including carpets, tiles, hardwood and laminate
  • In-built sensors include Dirt Detection (which applies a higher degree of suction power to especially soiled areas) and a Cliff-Detection sensor (which prevents an unfortunate tumble down the stairs)
  • Automatic re-charging occurs when the 606 is about to run out of charge – it will walk itself to the Home Base for some extra juice
  • Comes with a rechargeable battery and Home Base Charging Station and a line cord.

iRobot Roomba 670:

The iRobot Roomba 670 is equipped with all of the functions and features of the Roomba 606, but it’s also a ‘connected’ model, meaning it’s equipped with WiFi. This means that it can be controlled remotely via the iRobot Home app, or even a smart speaker using Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.

The 670 also comes with an extra filter, whereas the 606 only includes one standard filter.
