Product Description

As a member of our latest generation of robots, the iRobot Roomba 560 Vacuum Cleaning Robot features iRobot's newest innovations for dramatically improved performance, reliability and durability. Schedule up to seven different cleaning times per week for Roomba to clean when it's most convenient for you - whether you're at home or on the go. Roomba systematically cleans four rooms on a single charge, gets into hard-to-reach areas like wall edges and beneath furniture, avoids stairs and other drop offs and automatically adjusts from carpets to hard floors and back again. Two Virtual Wall® Lighthouses confine Roomba to a room until the entire floor is vacuumed before it moves on to clean the next room. When the job is done, or when the battery is running low, Roomba automatically returns to its self-charging Home Base to dock and recharge. Whats in the box ? 1 iRobot Roomba 560 2 Virtual Walls/ Lighthouse units 1 Self-charging Home Base / Docking station 1 Power Supply (3 hour charge time) 1 Brush Cleaning Tool 1 Rechargeable Battery 1 Extra Filter

I don't know how we managed before Roomba. It's the best thing I have ever bought! Ok it's a little more expensive than a traditionl vacuum cleaner but it does it all for you, so lots of extra free time and no arguing about whose turn it is to do the vacuuming - and a lot cheaper than employing a cleaner. I was afraid it wouldn't work that well, my husband thought I was completely bonkers buying it. But we were both very impressed and love it. I schedule it to vacuum while we'e at work and come home to a beautifuuly vacuumed home. If you live in a house rather than a flat, you can clean the ground floor on Mon, second floor on Tues... You can schedule it all in advance, and let Roomba do everything else for you - it knows where to go, it doesn't bump into furniture, it cleans brilliantly and redocks itself to recharge when it has finished. It's amazing. I have been raving about it to friends and colleagues since buying it 4 months ago.

I would defnitely recommend it, and frequently do...!

Someone said they don't know how they managed before buying the Roomba - I do - I tried to avoid vacuuming as much as possible - but with the Roomba 560 it couldn't be easier. Simply press the large green 'Clean' button and let it get on with it. Alternatively, setup the schedule and you don't even have to lift a finger to press the button.

Roomba trundles around merrily cleaning away, and when finished returns to the charging unit and docks itself.

I gave it a supervised trial run in each area I planned to use it - lounge, hall, top of the stairs etc to make sure it didn't get stuck anywhere or tumble down the stairs, but so far it's coped with carpets, hardwood floors, quarry-tiled floors all without complaint.

The soft-approach system is excellent, though doesn't pickup small vertical things like table legs too well, so it tends to charge full-tilt into them at times, but when it does the front bumpers compress, and the Roomba simply stops, turns and goes off in another direction.

In some areas, particularly narrow gaps between furniture I was convinced it would be confused - but it coped with everything in its stride, only once getting stuck on a footstool with a circular slightly raised base - but lifting it off and pressing the clean button had it back in motion again.

The small spinning brush is surprisingly effective at getting into corners, and the Roomba does a very good job of picking up general dust, crumbs, sawdust, wood shavings, pet hairs, Parrot feathers and anything of a similar ilk. It also happily trundles over electrical cables without getting stuck, and unlike the Dyson, doesn't get jammed up on doormats or rugs.

Verified Purchase
Every previous reviewer had given this 5 stars, and I wondered why? But this is just the best purchase I've ever made ...
When you're both out at work all day, and work weekends too, vacuuming is the last thing you want to be doing. This new member of our family is pulling his/her weight ten times over. Does exactly what it's supposed to, with no fuss.
You may wish to order a couple of extra satellites - the units you can set as walls or beacons, to shepherd little Roomba round the house - depending on how many rooms you want it to clean. We found it's a curious little creature - it can push doors open and explore on its own - so virtual walls [satellites] are useful. The bin capacity is fine for a single cycle of cleaning. It seems to do hard floors just as well as carpets. A word of caution for long-haired people and dog owners - the brushes will tangle within about 60 minutes of cleaning, but probably only with the first few uses, and then no more often than with our manual vacuum.
I can't imagine any of the more costly robot vacuums would be any better than this. At best it's made cleaning fun: at worst, I've turned into a compulsive robot programmer, and will shortly be checking into rehab.

If you've owned a dog, then owning a roomba is a similar experience.Without precautions it can get into rooms you don't want it to venture into, and eat things you'd rather it didn't! Before letting it loose in a room, you have to pick up everything off the floor, and you often have to retrieve things from its mouth!If there is a trailing mobile phone cable around-roomba'll have it and you'll eventually hear a mournful tune as he confesses he's caught up! For all us lazy people out there, roomba will do a perfectly good job. If you're obsessive, then it doesn't get into every corner. If you're obsessive about hoovering, the chance are you'll be doing it yourself anyway on a daily basis. We owned ours a month before it broke and had it fixed through the warranty. This is a common problem which is discussed on many roomba websites. The brushes get tangled up and stop turning. Also the plastic arms on the rotating brush have a nasty habit of garotting themselves and coming off. Replacements can be easily bought, but it is still a bit annoying.We programmed ours to start up every morning. When it broke we boxed it all up again, taped it all up, only to find it continued to come on! We couldn't work out how to over-ride the programme, so tend to just switch it on manually now. Despite the breakdown 4 weeks exactly after buying it, we love our roomba- and nothing is better than sitting reading the paper, drinking coffee and saying "leave me in peace, I'm doing the vacuuming!"
