iRobot Roomba® 780 Full Specifications

Let the robot do the dirty work.
Roomba uses a patented 3-stage cleaning process to vacuum carpets, hardwood, tile and laminate floors on its own, automatically adjusting to different floor surfaces as it moves through your home. Roomba 780's cleaning features include:

  • Advanced Cleaning Head: Designed with pet owners in mind, the cleaning head provides excellent performance for picking up pet hair, dirt, dust, allergens and more
  • AeroVac™ Series 2 Bin: Employs a powerful vacuum to vigorously pull debris and hair off brushes into the bin. The distributed air collection and clog-resistant design of the AeroVac Series 2 Bin optimizes vacuum effectiveness and dirt and hair packing efficiency.
  • Dual HEPA Air Filters: Capture dust particles as fine as 0.3 microns, limiting the recirculation of fine particles and leaving fresher, healthier air behind

Clean under the bed and other hard-to-reach areas.
Roomba provides comprehensive cleaning coverage – vacuuming in tight spots, under and around furniture and along baseboards. Roomba 780 features:
  • Persistent Pass Cleaning Method: Employs a back and forth cleaning pattern to apply elbow grease in areas where it senses excessive dirt

Every home is different.
Roomba maximizes cleaning by adapting to your unique household environment. iAdapt® Responsive Navigation Technology monitors the cleaning environment more than 60 times per second, using multiple sensors (like cliff detection) and dozens of behaviors (including wall following) to clean your home. Roomba 780 adapts to your home using:
  • Molded Soft-Touch Bumper: Cushions the contact made between Roomba and walls, furniture and other objects, protecting household items while it cleans
  • Dirt Detect Series 2: Uses optical and acoustic sensors to find dirt and debris, performing concentrated cleaning in the dirtiest areas and ensuring the whole floor is clean

Less work for you.
Roomba knows which areas to clean – and those to avoid. Virtual Wall® Lighthouses confine Roomba in one room until it is clean and then lets it move into the next room, ensuring the robot methodically cleans multiple rooms. Roomba also charges itself, going back to its Home Base® to dock and recharge between cleanings. More 780 convenience features include:
  • Extended-Life Power Management: Roomba 780 uses sophisticated power management software to deliver up to 50% longer battery life than previous Roomba generations, ensuring hundreds of cleaning cycles under proper use
  • On-Board Scheduling: Cleans when it's convenient for you, up to 7 times per week
  • Carrying Handle: Includes a recessed carrying handle for easy one-handed transport
  • Touchpad Control: Eliminates buttons, giving you control at the touch of your fingertips
  • Full Bin Indicator: Lets you know when the bin is full and needs to be emptied

Comments about iRobot Roomba® 780:

Rosie is the housekeeper on the Jetsons, so mine is Rosie Jetson. I think it's wonderful, does a great job of cleaning and moving from hardwood to carpet to tile and back, does a great job of cleaning every room. She did get herself stuck once between the wall and a nightstand and when I came home I just took her to her docking station. Another time she was stuck on a bath mat in the master bathroom. But once I learned to put the bathmat away, it's almost perfect. My only problem is that it comes with a CD to watch. I have a satellite tv that does not have a cd player, and I have a new laptop that didn't come with a CD player, so I haven't been able to watch the CD. There are no written directions, you just have to figure it out yourself if you cannot watch the CD. But that's the only problem I have had. Love Rose. She is amusing to watch and does a great job.

    Great product from a great company. i did a lot of researchs on a robotic vacuume and this one was the winner. i had another brand before (bobsweep),which i returned after a few hours of using. but Roomba 780 is something else. it works well every morning on its own. i love it. and im thinking to buy another one just for the bedroom.

    Comments about iRobot Roomba® 780:

    I love Herb Alpert! He has made life so much easier for us. I programmed him to run everyday at 10:00 and he goes for over 2 hours. It is amazing the amount of dog hair and dust that he picks up daily. I have allergies and this really helps me out. I was surprised at the people complaining of noise as he is much quieter than the vaccum cleaner. The only thing that is surprising is that he got stuck on the large area rug and since then will NOT go on it anymore. If I try to put him on to clean it, he alerts me to move him to a different area.

    Comments about iRobot Roomba® 780:

    We use the Roomba 780 to clean floors throughout the house. It does a good job on both hard surfaces and carpet. All rooms are small, so I can't speak to how the Roomba performs in a large room.

    We had an original Roomba years ago, and while I found it interesting, I found I could not rely on it to really clean floors. It got stuck too often, had a very small debris bin, didn't have much suction, etc. It served as a conversation piece more than anything. I'm happy to say that with the newer models, all those problems seem to have been solved. The Roomba 780 does a great job of cleaning floors, is easy to maintain, and gets stuck only rarely.

    The schedule feature is very nice as long as the Roomba appropriately follows the lighthouses, which unfortunately seems to be only about 50% of the time. I have it set to clean three rooms (living room, dining room, and kitchen) three times per week. Often, it will pass through a lighthouse that is in virtual wall mode, then get stuck in a room where it should not be. We've been away on multiple occasions only to come home and find the Roomba stranded on the wrong side of a virtual wall, having exhausted its power. It also seems that sometimes the Roomba will pass a lighthouse (in lighthouse mode) without realizing it. I say this because the Roomba will pass through a given lighthouse three times, then end up seeking its docking station in a room where the docking station does not reside.

    All in all, I give the Roomba 780's cleaning ability an A+, but its behavior with the virtual walls is unpredictable. I'll give the virtual wall lighthouse feature a C-.

    Comments about iRobot Roomba® 780:

    We have a total of 5 Model 780 iRobot's that sweep upstairs bedroom area, and living room, dining room, and kitchen areas, and Model 400 for basement area. We have to be very careful in bathrooms very flat carpets can only be used on the bathroom floors or else iRobot's get stuck. Great sweeper set the time and can count on a clean home. Because of sore back saves hours of trying to sweep. iRobot's are just about an inch too high and gets stuck under our kitchen cupboards. We got long blocks of styre foam and covered them with contact and set them along under the kitchen cupboards. Also iRobot's are just an inch too wide. iRobot's goes in between our kitchen and dining room chairs because the front chair legs are wider than the back chair legs, and most of the time iRobot's can't seem to figure out how to get out. We never ever leave them run when we are not home, because they can be stuck the entire running time. We want to buy the newer models, but the size measurements are all the same! We are waiting for a few years to see if they finally make the sizes just right for our use. We also own the large Scooba and smaller Braava's. We can't pick up heavy objects and carry things heavy so we had to purchase iRobot's for all areas. We have an old model 400 Roomba series that still can sweep the basement great, although any flat carpet stalls this 400 model. We have already recommended all models to family and friends. We would never be able to keep our home this clean all the time. Thanks for inventing iRobot's.

        Comments about iRobot Roomba® 780:

        For a short time, I was so impressed. BUT after just a couple weeks, I noticed the persistent pass feature no longer worked. Cat hair and kitty litter used to trigger it but now, there is no back and forth clealing as advertised (and observed for the first few outings of the robot).
        The mess is not entirely cleaned up anymore.

        I called for support and the answer I received was "the robot decided not to do that anymore". Well, did the robot decide to refund the $100 extra I paid for a robot with this feature? NO

        Support representative was surprisingly defensive and completely unwilling to consider there might be an issue.

        So does the robot clean the floors? yes. Does the robot do it extra well with the "back and forth action" that is so highly touted in the advdertisements here? NO

        Save some $$ and don't suck into Roomba promises of better operation for hundreds of dollars more.
        The robot will "decide" if you deserve what you paid for or not.

        Comments about iRobot Roomba® 780:

        I was skeptical at the price but since I've had it has done everything that it suggested it would do. My house is fully carpeted with only a small amount of non carpeted areas. I also have parrots so their a mess under their stand. I keep it docked near the bird stand & it will always clean under their, making my house look tidy all the time!!! It is very thorough with cleaning, it finds it's way into every room & thorough in each room & I am surprised that people complain about it being noisy. It IS after all a vacuum, what do you expect :) It is certainly a lot quieter than my normal vacuums. It does go for the recommended charge time of 90 mins, I LOVE that I can schedule it once only for every day & what ever time I choose. I would buy this item again.
