Smart

  • Cleans an entire level of your home: iAdapt® 2.0 Navigation with Visual Localization helps Roomba 980 seamlessly and efficiently navigate an entire level of your home and keep track of its location.
  • Automatically recharges and resumes until the job is done: Roomba 980 runs continuously for up to two hours*, then automatically recharges and resumes cleaning to complete the entire job.
  • Navigates multiple rooms: With iAdapt 2.0 Responsive Navigation, Roomba 980 uses a high-efficiency cleaning pattern and full suite of sensors to adapt to real-world clutter and furniture.
  • Cleans under sofas and chairs: Low-profile design allows Roomba to clean under most furniture and kickboards, so dirt has no place to hide.
  • Won't fall down stairs: Cliff-detection sensors allow Roomba to avoid stairs and other dangerous drop-offs.

Simple
  • Connect to clean from anywhere: The iRobot HOME App lets you clean and schedule conveniently – anytime, anywhere. It also lets you choose custom cleaning preferences and see the status of cleaning jobs.
  • Cleans all floors types: Roomba automatically adjusts to clean carpets, tile, hardwood and laminate floors as it moves through your home.
  • Automatically docks and recharges: Roomba automatically returns to its Home Base® docking station between cleanings to recharge.
  • Cleans on a schedule: Roomba can be preset to vacuum up to seven times per week.
  • Handles hair with ease: Brushless extractors prevent the tangles and jams of hair and other debris, making it even easier for Roomba to tackle daily dirt build-up.

Clean
  • Automatically increases power on carpets where it's needed most: The AeroForce® Cleaning System with Carpet Boost provides up to 10x the air power** by automatically increasing performance on carpet and rugs, where dust and dirt hide.

Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

Primarily use ace, roomba 980 to clean entire first level of house ~1900 sq ft. Of hardwood with area rugs.
Does well, except about once a week it seems to get lost and cannot return home. Sometimes see ace redoing the same thing two to four times like ace has lost its way. Usually corrects itself. Have noticed darker inner rooms, during day time, give ace some problems.

Overall very satisfied !

Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

A few years ago, I developed a chronic cough (dust allergy, I'm not a smoker) that was not responding to medication or intense air purification at home. While cleaning at home helped, the problem literally went away within 24 hours when I brought a roomba to work. Once I thoroughly cleaned my office I was much better. Still sensitive to dust, but a vast improvement. Now I can begin a conversation without having to cough and catch my breath. Worth every penny. A health care cure (almost) with no medication required.

Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

I love this thing!! I have four cats, three of which are long haired, and an ever-shedding Labrador Retriever, and a house full of hardwood floors. Before buying my Roomba, I was constantly sweeping up little tumbleweeds of hair. With the Roomba, the tumbleweeds are gone. The only thing I wish was a bit better designed on this model is the suction and size of the debris bin. I find that the unit often returns to the home base thinking it's full (which often it is), but it also does it when the bin was just emptied and it turns out that hair gets stuck in the rollers and the unit sensor still indicates that the bin is full, when it just needs to suck a little bit of hair out of the rollers and keep on going. The unit is also fairly noisy, but less so than a traditional vacuum cleaner. I am very pleased with this unit, and although it was a bit pricey, it's been worth it given that the tumbleweeds are gone and the house is quite clean. I would recommend a Roomba to anyone with pets and hardwood floors, for sure.

Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

Navigation didn't handle a complex layout, sometimes repeat one segment multiple times before going to the next. May benefit from a system that allows the user to review how the machine see the room and can edit the layout so that the machine would know how to catalog correctly

      Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

      I LOVE this vacuum cleaner! It goes under furniture that is higher than it, cleans carpets, goes from hard wood to tile to throw rugs easily. Picks up dog hair and food crumbs left by the grands with no problems. Every now and again I have to hunt for it because it is either stuck under a piece of furniture that was a tad lower than the machine or it did not make it back to the charging station. If vacuuming is not your thing you really need one of these! Now, can someone invent something to clean blinds!
