      Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

      I have been a long-time Roomba fan. Bought the first one - it stopped charging the battery after a while. Had to completely take it apart and clean it every 5 minutes, and it only swept - not a vacuum. Bought the white one years later - really the same drama, it's still charging, but it needed to be completely disassembled and cleaned more than my HOUSE needed sweeping. This Roomba has changed EVERYTHING. It's EVERYTHING it should be. I have taken it apart to clean it's pieces ONCE in 5 months of DAILY cleaning - and it vacuums the rugs!!! It's just fantastic - I cannot rave more about it. Buy this thing. It's GREAT!

      I have a large home Approximately 4000 sq ft on main floor Rhoda does a great job, but she hasn't found her way to all the rooms, yet. I don't expect completion on one charge and I don't mind her "charging" breaks. But will she eventually find her way, or should I place her there?

        Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

        The Roomba 980 performs beyond expectation. I moved into a new apartment. Waiting for the movers to arrive I have used the Roomba almost daily. The cleaning has progressed from removing the heavy dirt (the carpet was "cleaned" prior to move in) and has progressed to a really great clean with edges and heavy traffic areas really effectively tackled by the machine. I change the filter with each cleaning, it is so filled with dust. The initial "random" dirt based cleaning has be replaced by a very systematic cleaning. Truly amazing improvement to the carpet.

          Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

          Very easy initial set up through phone and/or tablet. Operation is simple -- tell it to "Clean" and walk away. About 2 hours later, empty the dust bin.

          It was entertaining to watch it figure out how to clean our house. We live in a geodesic dome and the house isn't rectangular -- it's more of an octogon at floor level.

          The little gadget that puts up an electronic barrier to keep the robot from going into areas you don't want swept works wonderfully to keep the robot out of the cat's room.

          Overall, I'm very impressed with our 980. It cleans the entire ground floor and frees up our time to do something else instead of spending over an hour vacuuming the house. Now if iRobot could just figure out a way to get it to climb stairs so the robot could do the ENTIRE house -- I'd be REALLY impressed.

          Comments about iRobot® Roomba® 980:

          Well, this is pretty simple...One of the most important things for me at my home is to have the floors spotless at all times. The lines in the carpet after it has been vacuumed, the clean tile, and spotless hardwood floors are a must. My Roomba 980 does it all. By far the best money spent EVER on cleaning products. My cleaning lady costs me $100.00 a week...I told her to hold off for one month while I ran this system...saved $400.00 so far and I intend to continue to allow Roomba 980 to do the house.

          The only issues I have are:

          1. The unit is a bit tall and my furniture (couches and ottoman) sit lower to the floor that the Roomba can fit. That part is a bit of a bummer but nothing that changes my mind towards the effectiveness of the machine. After all, I am sure the iRobot team made the 980 as small as possible in order to maintain its overall effectiveness. I am now in the process of making leg extensions to raise the furniture about 1.5" to accommodate the machine! Yup! It's that good!

          I cannot believe I have survived this long without the Roomba 980. What a magical machine. I rate it as high as my Dyson only better because I don't have to push it around the room. Although I have not worked out the manner in which it cleans, it does a perfect job every time. We even remotely controlled it from our mobile whilst overseas. Amazing. Love him
