bought one from roomba estore. Bedazzeled by its good looks and REALLY wanted it to excel, but it was not up to the job at all. Even very light marks with the proper solution were beyond it and residue marks left everywhere. It was on a sealed laminate floor, the perfect medium, and the results sadly sucked. Their (Roomba estore EU) returns policy does not cover postage, so I sent it back at a loss of £50.00 postage. which shows their lack of faith in there own product and quiet how useless i thought it was. Im very happy with my roomba and maybe the higher scooba models work but don't buy this model. Im considering buying the higher models but not from the roomba estore with a returns policy like that.

Followed the instructions and set the unit off. Hardly cleaned any dirt off the floor at all. Manual says it scrubs the floor however all it does is lightly brush the cleaning solution over the floor then sucks up excess. For a £250 product it's a disgrace.

I was a bit sceptical about how good a job the Scooba would do, so I watched a lot of YouTube videos by owners demonstrating its cleaning ability before I took the plunge and ordered one.

I have to say, it does do an incredibly good job. It's very quite and did a very good job of cleaning our kitchen floor. We have two cats, a dog and a five year old so a lot of mud gets tracked in. The Scooba cleaned it all up without any problems at all. I was actually amazed by how clean the floor was afterwards.

So, if it did such a good job, why 4 stars and not 5?

There are two things that let the Scooba down:
The charging time versus its running time;
The inflexibility of the cleaning cycles.

It takes roughly 8 hours to charge the Scooba, which is an incredibly long period of time. This wouldn't be such a problem if you could then use it to clean all your hard floors off one charge, but you can't, because the running time is only about an hour. Which feeds into the second issue. Rather than cleaning the floor and stopping like its vacuum counterparts, the Scooba has two wash time options: 40 minutes for a large room or 20 minutes for a small room. You decide which you would like it to do. It basically continues to clean the room its in for that length of time, even if the room would need a shorter clean cycle. Either one of these issues on their own would be ok, but both together are just annoying.

That said, it does such a good job at cleaning that I can almost forgive it for these two shortcomings.

I would definitely give this 5 stars if it was about £100 cheaper. It does work and does the job pretty well, although it won't remove anything particularly sticky, it does get up most dirty marks. The 8 hour charge time is a major letdown.

Having said that it is majorly cool, and I never get tired of watching the little guy scurry round cleaning the floors while I sit watching tv with my feet up.

It is a lot of money, but if you have the spare cash then definitely pick one up, it does make life a little easier.

Was a bit hesitant to go for this little robot floor washer, considering the price, but we've keeping it busy in our living room/kitchen area and the bathrooms - and so far it has been brilliant. Sure, it can't clean as effectively as a manual thorough clean, on your knees and with a hard bristle brush, but it's so easy to bring out, fill and start, that we let it run in the kitchen area twice a week and in the living room area once a week, so the lack of cleaning power can be compensated with more frequent washes.
With the help of two iRobot virtual walls it's easy to keep it in the kitchen, and to divide our rather large living room into two parts that are within the maximum area it can handle in one go. Recharging is very slow, according to the little green lamp which blinks forever during recharges. However, the other day we did both parts of the whole living room, by only charging it 4-5 hours in between, and that was obviously enough.
Best gadget we've bought for years - and our hardwood floor stays cleaner than it ever has, as it's so easy to let it do a run!

Firstly, full marks to Amazon for a mega-fast refund! What a great experience which is why I prefer to purchase from Amazon.

This item was delivered on Monday, collected & charged-up on Tuesday, packed-up and returned to Amazon on Wednesday, and full refund reached my bank account on Friday!

The concept of the iRobot Scooba is great, but after charging the little chap fully, as instructed, I tested, re-charged, re-tested and sadly it just didn't do the job I expected. I used a steam mop afterwards and achieved immensely better results in less time, and at a fraction of the cost. I'm so sorry to have to be so negative, but if you have £270 to give away, then fine, but luckily I can trust Amazon for an honest refund. I'd be a complete 'mug' if I'd kept the Scooba ... it just isn't up to the job, even over a relatively small area!

This is the most fantastic little machine. My kitchen floor is permanently clean now. It keeps running for a long time therefore making sure it cleans every inch of the floor. The floor is only washed with clean water unlike a mop. Over the moon with it.

Really disappointing . I already own a roomba vacuum and really rate it. I previously had an older model of scuba that was pretty effective too, however this model really isn't fit for purpose. I have continual problems with it just shutting down from errors. No idea what the errors are either, it will run for under 5 seconds and stop. Might be that I have dark floors and it messes with the sensors. I Wish I had returned it when I had the opportunity . Kinda puts me off irobot products a little as I feel pretty ripped off. I would avoid this if you have dark floors, pets or just don't want to spend all your time resetting it....which defeats the object of the machine really! Pros, you don't need the extra mopping clothes as with previous models

Get one today! I love it. Just set it going and come back to a clean floor. Clean out the rubber pad, and sweep thoroughly before use and it is fine.

An expensive luxury but I think it,s great! The washing programme lasts about 40 minutes or 2 washes of 20 minutes but then it needs to re-charge which, unfortunately,does take a few hours. However, my floors have never been washed as often as they are now as this was never my favourite chore!
