          I use Buster on days I can't clean. Buster helps me out when I am busy. the only problem is that I have to clean the bin each time so I know it will not get clogged or loss of cleaning power.
          The V wall has always worked good for us. No problems. Just have to make sure I pick it up after each use or it will become a chew toy for our Rotty pup.

                      you turn it on, go to work thinking the virtual wall will do its job, come home and your pet bowl has been pushed around the house and the water bowl knocked over

                      This is Not the Auto

                      By Amusing Clown

                      Comments about iRobot Compact Virtual Wall®:

                      We mistakenly ordered this "compact virtual wall" instead of the "auto virtual wall". I'm really not sure why anyone would order this one vs. the auto, except I guess if they have a 600 series (we have a 700 series). The Auto is only for select 500 and 700 series models. So everyone should be careful to get what they want - Roomba really needs to improve their description on this one to include the fact that it turns completely off. The picture shows the power button on the top and that is really is the only appearance difference between the compact and auto versions.

                      Per the roomba site: "A Compact Virtual Wall (and its power light) will shut off after 135 minutes." (from http://homesupport.irobot.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/486/~/what-are-roomba%E2%AE-virtual-walls%E2%AE%3F )
