Customer review posted on 07/09/2019

This robot had very good reviews. Was £300 cheaper on this site than anywhere else. Cleans brilliantly and very efficiently. Battery life not as good as I expected, however I have set the cleaning to maximum at all times. Overall I would recommend

Customer review posted on 31/07/2019

Excellent product, very thorough in its cleaning,picks up dust even after a clean with a conventional vacuum cleaner.
Unlike other robot cleaners I have seen it manages to climb onto our thick living room rug

Customer review of Richard M. posted on 18/07/2019

The price has come down but is still high for its overall performance. The suction strength is good on thick carpets, but the bin needs emptying manually every 15 minutes or so. It is still a good labour saving device, although it is a nuisance having to move the whole system including the base up and down stairs, and having two would be extravagant. The models with automatic bin emptying at the base are probably the answer, like the i7+, so we look forward to having a future model that combines all the virtues and is less expensive.

Customer review posted on 14/07/2019

Excellent product . Amazing to see it work its way around the room in a very methodical intelligent way.

Customer review posted on 10/07/2019

Very impressed, it’s a lot more powerful than i thought it would be, cleans very well. Won’t be using my traditional hoover much now. Would recommend.

Customer review of Francesca G. posted on 30/06/2019

Just tried the product and it is great relief not having to pass the hoover with this hot weather. It seems to be working great.

Customer review posted on 24/06/2019

Item was bought as I have a large amount of hardwood flooring and there is significant grit brought in from outside. Floor before I bought the Rooms 980 was a bit like walking on sandpaper. Room and has fixed the problem and I am grit free.

Customer review posted on 01/05/2019

Day three, but whole family really positive about robot hoover.

Customer review posted on 20/04/2019

I like the convenience.
It is easy to clean and save me time.
I will recommend it.

Customer review posted on 16/04/2019

Had an iRobot hoover before and think they are a great product around the house.
Went for an upgraded model this time to enable cleaning of the whole floor of my house without interruption. Being able to manage the schedule and cleaning via the app while I am out is great.
Only used it a couple of times so far but its works as expected without issue.

Customer review posted on 15/04/2019

Please with Roomba.Never had one before.Seems straight forward to operate.

Why are iRobot’s new Roombas so damn expensive?

Robot vacuum pioneer iRobot has big plans in the works. From new Roombas that clean themselves to smart vacuums that communicate with floor-mopping machines, and even robotic lawn mowers, iRobot has been busy.

But while these sophisticated home care systems sound impressive, even useful, they suffer from one glaring downside. They are all staggeringly expensive. This move by iRobot is no accident. While it may seem reckless, it’s a reaction to the realities of today’s robot vacuum market.

For its high-end plan to succeed, iRobot really needs to deliver on the bold promises of its new vacuum technology. Here’s an overview of what iRobot offers over its competition, and what it means for you.

Read: Roomba gets an upgrade and a new floor-mopping sidekick | Best robot vacuum of 2019: iRobot Roomba, Neato and more

Home robots have gone mainstream

Like TV sets in their early days, robot vacuum cleaners were once aspirational, luxury appliances. Today that’s changed. Prices for entry-level cleaning bots have hit all-time lows, and continue to drop. You can now scoop up an entry-level robot vacuum for as little as $224. As with TVs, the idea of a single- or multi-robot home doesn’t sound outrageous.

The cause of this shift is certainly increased competition. These days iRobot faces a host of challengers. The list includes rivals such as Dyson, Electrolux, Samsung, LG and lesser-known companies like Neato, Eufy, Ecovacs, Electrolux. Even the crowdsourced corner of the hardware market is getting in on it, thanks to Narwhal and its promised self-cleaning vacuum-mop combo.

More automation means less work

Beating back competitors in a race to the bottom is a losing proposition for any trade. And battling over price alone is surely no way to innovate. I think it makes more sense to dream up brand-new products, ones that do things no robot cleaner has done before or yet as well. That appears to be what iRobot envisions with its current premium lineup. Both the $1,099 Roomba i7+ and $1,299 Roomba S9+ are built to work with the CleanBase doc. It both charges and empties out their dustbins, so there’s less mess to deal with.

The CleanBase cleans Roombas so you don’t have to.

iRobot

At the moment, these are the only robot vacuums available in the US that can pull off this trick. They weren’t the first to attempt this. Ecovacs self-cleaning vacuums offered similar functions in the past. The same is true for the Samsung Navibot S that promised an “auto dust emptying” feature. Neither robot made it to the US market.

And since manual cleaning is one of the biggest headaches associated with these machines, the feature could be worth paying extra for. That said, execution is critical to success. These new pricey Roombas must perform as advertised, otherwise their future looks shaky.

Another unique selling point iRobot makes for its expensive new products is their intelligent, collaborative operation. The Roomba S9+ will coordinate its cleaning activity with the company’s Braava Jet m6 robot mop. Both are linked to the iRobot mobile app. With one finger tap, the Roomba vacuums then tags the Braava to start mopping when its done. Again the goal is more automation, and less work for you.

iRobot’s latest Roomba and Braava mop will communicate to coordinate floor cleaning.

iRobot

iRobot also has plans outside of floor care. The iRobot Terra robot lawn mower will land in Germany first in the third quarter of 2019. It’s then slated for US shores (and yards) by 2020. The Terra won’t come cheap either, with iRobot expecting it to cost about the same as other robotic grass-trimming solutions ($900 to $10,000).

The Robomow, and Honda Miio are similar systems you can purchase today. Unlike those products, the Terra will use wireless communication and software to navigate. In fact, it’ll be the first robot lawn mower to do so. The big upside here, and what sets the Terra apart, is you won’t need to deploy tedious guide wires along the ground. It’s a physical hassle that comes with current automatic mowers.

Evolve, improve or die

As the first commercially successful robot vacuum brand, Roomba products enjoy commanding market share. Naturally all the other makers of domestic bots want a piece of the action. Arguably the biggest threat to Roomba comes from a legion of budget models. And even though they can cost as little as $200 to $300, many are quite advanced.

For example, $299 Eufy Robovac 30C and $179 Ecovacs N79 both link to mobile apps for command and control. Some create digital maps of your floors as they clean them. I especially like Ecovac’s app that displays the robot’s position in real time as it’s cleaning. These Neato and Ecovacs models are compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant, too.

Competition isn’t only coming from entry-level vacuums either. Neato’s flagship model, the $829 Botvac D7 Connected, costs less than the Roomba s9+ ($1,299 with CleanBase, $999 without). Even so, it supports multiple room cleaning, and lets you drop virtual barriers into your floor plans. That way you can cordon off areas where your robot shouldn’t venture.

Select Roombas just began storing maps last year. And they all still lack an official virtual barrier function, relying instead on less convenient physical barriers. That said, the new app-connected Roombas will accept voice commands to start and stop cleaning with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, but that’s more keeping up with the rest of the market than an advanced feature.

A steep price for convenience

You can’t deny that iRobot is charging a huge premium for its suite of floor cleaning products. Outfitting your home with them is an outrageously expensive proposition. You have to shell out for a $1,299 Roomba s9+ that empties its dustbin on its own. Next, you pair it with a new $499 Braava Jet m6 robot mop. That comes to an eye-popping $1,798.

Based on what I’ve seen testing robot vacuums over the years across all price points, iRobot has a tall order to fill in terms of delivering enough value to justify such a high price tag. Most robot vacuums, Roombas included, don’t even reliably return to base without a hitch, let alone operate for months without human intervention. When you add to the mix a separate intelligent mopping machine running in tandem, the variables for unforeseen problems will no doubt increase.

I’ll put iRobot’s new cleaners through our testing lab as soon as I can. I’d love to be surprised, but iRobot is going to have to demonstrate a remarkable leap forward in robot floor cleaning technology to justify the high cost of even the vacuum itself, let along the vacuum-mop combination.

Robotic vacuums can also clean more efficiently and thoroughly than you might — like under beds and couches. If you’ve been thinking about buying a robot vacuum, we’ve done the research for you.

The iRobot brand has a wide variety of powerful vacuums in the Roomba line, with significant discounts from Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and more.

Although smart-home devices have recently caused security concerns, Roomba’s CEO was quick to address its company policies.

There are a lot of iRobot Roombas on sale during Cyber Monday. Great news for anyone who hasn’t converted from the traditional handheld vacuum to a robot vac that can clean with the touch of a button or even your voice.

Many big retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart drop prices on Roombas throughout the year, but the savings aren’t huge — Cyber Monday is when prices can drop a few hundred. There are also a ton of models in general, so we’ve curated this list to be the Roombas worth buying at retailers with the best deals. In fact, three of them are highly-rated in our robot vacuum buying guide.

If you’re shopping around, check out this sale on the Dyson V8 vacuum for $250. We’re also tracking all the best Cyber Monday deals so you can find great products at great prices.

The 6 best Roomba deals of Cyber Monday 2019:

1. iRobot Roomba i7+ (7550), $699 at Amazon; $699.99 at Best Buy and Bed Bath & Beyond, originally $999.99

2 iRobot Roomba i7 (7150), $499 at Amazon, Lowe’s, and Walmart; $499.99 at Best Buy, originally $699.99

3. iRobot Roomba 670, $197 at Walmart (originally $329.99)

4. iRobot Roomba 675, $199.99 at Amazon and Lowe’s, (originally $299.99)

6. iRobot Roomba 960, $399 at Amazon; $399.99 at Bed Bath & Beyond; $469.99 at Target (originally $649.99)

Note that these sale prices don’t reflect additional savings you might get for having store credit cards with rewards, like Target’s RedCard or Amazon’s store card, or cash back, like Kohl’s Cash.

Why these are the best Roomba deals:

1. We rated the i7+ (currently $699) as the best self-cleaning robot vacuum for its extreme convenience and ease of use. After it’s finished with a cycle, it self-docks at the base and dumps all the dust and hair it picked up in there. Thirty cycles later, you can clear out the base out instead of manually emptying out the robot vac after each use. Here’s a full review. Naturally, there’s a high price tag, but this is the lowest we’ve ever seen for the i7+.

2. While the i7 (currently $499) doesn’t have the self-cleaning feature, it’s just as powerful as the i7+. It’s also a lot cheaper and has 10x more suction power than models in the 6 series, which are also on sale.

3.If you’re looking for an efficient Roomba under $200, the 670 model (currently $197) is a slightly older entry-level robot vacuum that doesn’t skimp on the features. It has powerful suction with a three-stage cleaning process, multiple brush heads for various surfaces, and Wi-Fi, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant compatibility so you can control it no matter where you are.

4. The 675 (currently $199.99) is considered to be a newer version of the 670 with all the same features. It was as low as $170 earlier this year, and Lowe’s and Amazon have both dropped the price down to $199.99 for Cyber Monday.

5. The e5 5150 (currently $279) is a solid mid-tier robot vac and is the brand’s replacement for the 800 series models. It’s 5x more powerful than the 675 and 690 models and has a high-efficiency filter that gets 99% of dust, mold, and dog and cat allergens.

6. Though slightly more expensive than the other models here, the 960 (currently $399) has an even more advanced version of the Dirt Detect tech found in the 675 and 690, but with lots of extra features. It can be paired with the app to show you which areas of your space were cleaned, learns your floor plan to clean more efficiently every time, self-dock and recharge when it’s low on battery, and even resume cleaning after charging.

How we selected the best deals on Roombas:

  • We only chose models that meet our high standard of coverage, and that we’ve either used ourselves or researched carefully.
  • We compared the prices against other retailers like The Home Depot and Amazon and only included the deals that are the same or better (not including promotional discounts that come from using certain credit cards).
  • All deals are at least 20% off, with the occasional exception for models that are rarely discounted or provide an outsized value.

Is a Roomba worth buying?

In a word: Yes.

Our reviewers who have tested different versions of Roombas all say that it’s super convenient to run the robot vac while they’re at work or just in another room of their house and know that dirt, dust, and all sorts of crumbs will get sucked up off their floors. Check out our reviews of the 980 and the top-of-the-line self-cleaning i7+ for more.

In fact, Insider Picks’ VP of Commerce Breton Fischetti even goes as far as to say this:

“The Roomba is the single best apartment purchase I’ve made in the last couple of years. I set it to run a few times a week while I am at work, and I love getting the app notification that it’s finished cleaning. It makes me feel like I’ve done chores even though I haven’t, and I’m always shocked by how much stuff it picks up.

You’d think running it frequently would mean that it would always be empty but the amount of general dust that accumulates every day is always surprising. My allergies are better because of it. If you have a pet, like my brother, it’s even more impactful. He bought one after I showed him mine and loves it.”

Looking for a Cyber Monday deal that will pay off in the long run? Well, the self-emptying iRobot Roomba i7+ is on sale on Amazon for $300 off, at $699. Yes, that’s a lot of money for a vacuum cleaner, but there are a few features that set this model apart.

For starters, it will empty itself, all on its own, once it docks back at its charging base. It’s called “Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal,” and essentially the base sucks the bin of the i7+ empty and pushes the dirt into an Allergen Lock bag, so none of the dust bunnies can escape. The bag should hold around 60 days’ worth of cleaning.

The i7+ vacuum is pretty capable on its own. With lasers, navigation and a full vSLAM unit on board, the i7+ can navigate its way around almost any obstacle. It can even map your house and give you the option of naming different rooms. This way, you can send the i7+ to clean the whole home or just specific locations. It’s pretty neat.

And from the cleaning perspective, it has a three-stage system that works on both hardwood and carpets. It grabs the dirt you can see plus the stuff you can’t quite make out, so it’s got you covered.

If you don’t need a self-emptying smart vacuum, consider the iRobot Roomba 675, which is $100 off at $199.99. It still features a three-stage cleaning system and has a runtime of about 90 minutes. When it’s running low on charge, it will dock itself, charge up and then get back out there and finish the job. There’s also the iRobot Roomba 960, which, like the i7+, has iAdapt Navigation to enable smart mapping of your home. The 960 is down to $399 from $649.99 for Cyber Monday.

All of these integrate into Amazon Alexa through an iRobot Skill that links the accounts. Once it’s enabled, cleaning is as simple as saying “Alexa, tell the Roomba to clean my kitchen.”

Robotic vacuum shopping tips

The world of robotic vacuums has expanded with competing brands. iRobot’s Roomba is the pioneer and still the most popular. Neato is a close second. Other options include Samsung’s Powerbot and the Eufy RoboVac.

Before buying, do your research. Robotic vacuums range in price from under $200 to more than $800. Take into account your needs before buying. Having pets, having a home with lots of carpet and needing the ability to turn your vacuum on remotely may all require a more advanced model.

Other optional features may bring up the price tag as well, including voice commands and mapping ability.

If these options are … well … optional for you, you may be able to get by with a basic Roomba model, or one of the other budget-friendly brands.
