anyone have a roomba?

Recommended Posts

I have one and love it (but for the veil eating issue). I am suprised how much it picks up each time I empty it. I would be extremely shocked if it was $80 so if so, pick one up!

I sooooooooooooooo want one of these. We have all laminate flooring in our house, with the cat. We have random batches of tumble fur I like to call it. Even after I just sweep, mop and vacuum!!

 

Does anyone know how it is going over the wood floors to adjusting to having area rugs?

 

The FI says its a waste of money, but if it can go under the bed and get all that stuff I'd be happy as anything!!

Yes, we have. The only thing is we couldn't agree on one name...now I don't even remember the name we picked. How sad is that!

Besides price, is there a big difference between models? We have wood floors throughout and two pups that bring in a lot of dirt...I really want one, but have read mixed reviews, so I'm undecided at this point.

I have one and really don't care for it at all. It was a gift. It does go from wood floors over the rugs but I feel like it gets stuck going in circles and doesn't really pick up that great. Rather use my dirt devil. As far as our carpeted rooms, forget it, it's useless!

Your Grandma's expressions are priceless!

 

I was going to register for the Roomba, but FI bought me one at Circuit City since they are going out of business. I have 2200 square feet of travertine floors and a lab who sheds like crazy. Needless to say, I LOVE my Roomba!
