Smart technology, no work for me, drives the dog nuts - what's not to like!
, 8 May 2010
I bought this because we have wooden/laminate floors throughout our (small) open plan house, two messy children, a sloppy husband and a dog. As a result I was either sweeping or vacuuming the floor every day, and my children still went to bed with filthy feet/socks. The Roomba arrived 7 days earlier than estimated, and within hours was charged sufficiently to use. It is noisy but quieter, I think, than a vacuum, and a tolerable background noise. It is extremely thorough, and keeps on top of the enormous amount of dust and dirt that seem to gather on our floors. You do need to clear the floors of debris to let it do its best work, and also be very careful of what's gathered out of sight under your sofa, where, in our house, there was an accumulation of bits and bobs we had to fish out before it choked the Roomba. The dog is terrified of it and has to sit next to me whilst it trundles round!
An excellent purchase, I would wholeheartedly recommend it for anyone with uncarpeted floors.
