This cleaning robot sits at the bottom of the price range, yet it has many features you'd expect on more advanced cleaners. It can clean multiple kinds of surfaces, it has an option for wet cleaning, it navigates well between obstacles, and it has a safety switch that turns it off if it gets stuck. See More
This robot is equipped with a powerful vacuum that deals efficiently with dust and small dirt particles, including inside rugs and carpets; bristled brushes that collect larger particles and pet hair; and a detachable microfibre cloth for wet cleaning hard floor surfaces. See More
A small battery-powered device called "virtual wall" allows you to create a virtual boundary that the robot will not cross. It emits an invisible infrared ray 7 feet long that serves as a stop-sign for the Roomba. So, for example, if you don't want the Roomba to wander into a room with your pet's food and water, or a bunch of wires scattered on the floor, just place this device in the doorway. See More
Think of this product (and the iRobot brand as a whole) as the Apple of autonomous cleaning robots. It's somewhat over-priced when compared to its competitors - especially for a mid-range product - but it offers superior build quality and the guarantee of quality that can be offered by a company that has been around longer that the competition. Still, the cost is high for someone wanting to test the waters of robotic vacuum cleaners, and a brand doesn't justify it. See More
Not only does this robotic vacuum cleaner do tiles, hardwood, and whatever other hard surface you might have as your floor, but its the ground clearance lets it climb onto carpets and clean them perfectly. This lets you get dog hair, crumbs, dirt, and other debris out of that carpet you spent so much money on. See More
The Roomba 880 uses rubber dust collectors to pick up more dirt than the bristled ones on lower quality models. Not only do they effectively do that, but they are much easier to clean, as you don't need to comb anything out of the collectors, you can just pull everything off in one motion. See More
