God, I love this thing. We named it Rob! Rob does an amazing job on our wall-to-wall wood floors! Better than house cleaners do because he goes over and over the floor until he runs out of battery. I am so happy to have Rob! He makes my life so much easier than running the stick vacuum or the plugin vacuum. I just push his button and off he goes cleaning his little heart out! The Cons would be that I have a thick area rug in the living room he really can't clean, but that doesn't really bother me. When we use Rob, I feel impelled to pick up all the chairs and move them so he can go around them easily and I pick up all the rugs, I just make sure to move everything so it's easy for him to do a great job. We have 3 dogs so there is a lot of hair and dust and he gets it all. He actually goes around each chair and table leg and sweeps off any lint or hair off the bottom of each leg!! He's amazing!
Easy to start, one push button. Goes off its base and starts to vacuum. I would give one huge warning though. Before you let it go off to do its job, YOU BETTER GET EVERYTHING OFF THE FLOORS, which includes ALL extension electrical cords, including table lamp cords, TV electrical cords, computer connections. I almost lost my favorite table lamp. It was a good thing I followed the thing doing its job because it grabbed and started to pull my lamp off the table, if I wasn't looking. WOW !. Get all area rugs off the floor as well. To cut to the quick there should be "nothing" on the floors in all rooms before you start it. I noticed the next day after this unit cleaned my house, light dust swirls all over the house in the morning sun light on the floors, which I believe was caused by the rotating side brush, that with inadequate suction.
Roomba works as described. Sends out messages such as completed vacuum, time it took and shows diagram where it cleaned. Shows when the bin is full (its full after each vacuum) . Overall it does a great job cleaning the floors and after a few mire trials I will try out the programming to see if it will work. Now for the things to keep in mind, it does have trouble cleaning around the stone fireplace because it’s not a smooth wall. Cords seam to be an issue, to small and it gets tangled and to big it gets stuck. The edge of the throw rugs seem to be an issue for it because it only has one edge brush so it goes the opposite direction it doesn’t clean very well. Being refurbished I found one part attached wrong and after taking it apart I was able to correct the part before it became a problem.
