Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

This is the best money I spent on my new home! I have a cat who sheds like crazy, and Roombie just goes around cleaning the whole house, making me very happy! The only negative is that sometimes it runs out of battery before making it home, so I need to go searching for it. All part of the fun of owning my little robot!

Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

I have a carpet that is 20 years+ old. I was amazed at how well the Roomba 980 cleaned the carpet after three passes. While the carpet is never going to look new, it now looks very decent. I'm impressed.

    Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

    Best purchase ever! I hate to vacuum. The Roomba runs while we are away at work. My house feels cleaner!! The only con is that it takes 6+ and at least 3 recharges to do my entire house, and infrequently gets stuck.

    Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

    Roomba really would chew up this one rug that we have, getting fibers everywhere and leaving the whole room a mess. There didn't seem to be any way to prevent it from vacuuming the rug (moving the rug every time was not feasible). Also, Roomba got stuck repeatedly in various places in our house, and a lot of the house would end up not being vacuumed.

        Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

        So happy with this purchase! I hesitated for a minute when I read a review which showed that it didn't do a perfect job on a test of picking up spilled rice. I thought, do I really want to spend so much money on something that might only do a mediocre clean? OMG was I wrong!!! First off, as my husband pointed out, it's not like we spill rice on a daily basis. We're just a normal family. I run it every day (mostly I move it between floors, so each level of our house gets done every other day). But even when I forget to move it upstairs and it cleans downstairs two days in a row, it is unbelievable how much dust it picks up! We used to have a cleaning service and the house would get vacuumed maybe once a week (assuming they showed up-- certainly there were weeks skipped). Looking at how much dust the roomba picks up every day just makes me realize how dusty our house must have been in our pre-roomba days! Maybe the rice test said it wasn't perfect. But it sure is better than vacuuming only once a week, which for our family would be the alternative. It also gets under beds, under tables, etc. So as far as that goes more thorough than we would be. On the other hand, I am not convinced that it does edges super well. And, of course, it doesn't do stairs. One other benefit- we pick up everything every day, so the roomba can do it's job, so our house is also neater.

        Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

        We have a large house so I have to divide up cleaning days. Sometimes I see the error message that it has been jammed. Upon clearing it, it sometimes forgets where it is and the cleaning cycle has to start over. Another time it closed itself into a closet by shutting the door on itself and the battery died. Again, the cleaning cycle had to start over.

        Other than these things, I really like the product.

        Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

        Initially we thought "too expensive" but we have two dogs, two cats and six parakeets---and I have a new hip! Vacuuming daily is a necessity and overwhelming so we decided to give it a try. The fact that we were assured it could be returned if we were disappointed was a major factor in our decision. After the Roomba's first trip around the kitchen....we were sold! Wonderful! It even does a pretty good job getting up bird feathers and parakeet seeds. This is one Roomba that is most definitely not gonna be returned! It does a great job. I can now knit and vacuum at the same time!!!!!
