I have the original Roomba which was first designed in 2004. Its truly amazing in terms of being clever and even pickup is good. Sadly after a rooms work (20 mins) its dead and takes 12 hours to charge on normal charger so good fun but a bit impractical!

I've got one of these already, it's called the wife :w00t:

I bought the 'C' version last week (with remote control and charger base station). To be honest I wasnt expecting much from it. However, Ive been very pleased. It will never replace my Dyson but it does mean I can shut it in a different room each day and let it get on with it to keep on top of the vacuuming. You do need to empty it after each room and clean out the vacuum entry point but thats pretty easy. If the base station is in the same room as the unit it will find its way back to it when it needs charging and you can set it to auto start cleaning once charged or set a timer to start it when you want.

However, as the base station needs to be in the same room then I would recommend this basic verison which does the same job. However if you have to pay delivery it may be worth paying the little extra for the 'C' version as kids will love the remote control.

You do have to clear a room of loose objects: toys, cables etc but other than that just switch it on and let it go. Im thinking of getting one for my mum who finds pushing a full size vacuum around difficult.

A Roomba will cost 4 times this price so this is a bargain.

I very much doubt it. The motor will probably be about three watts. Compare that with your conventional vacuum cleaner - and I presume that there is no beater bar either.

Rated suction power= 2.4 watts:-(

It sucks :giggle:

Lol at the video at the very end.

I bought one of these from ebuyer last year, it is quite good especially on lino and wood and does pick up a lot of stuff from carpets too. The two biggest problems are the tiny capacity it has for dirt and reliability- mine has stopped working and I'm currently RMA'ing it to ebuyer. Although all credit to them they are actually paying the return postage costs which I didn't think they did:thumbsup:
#15
hmmm its tempting with mothers day coming up but.... think it will add more hassle.these things will really come into there own once they upthe power and add a beater bear etc.Grim the old dear will have to keep doing it herself lol
#16
These work great on wooden/hard floors. We've had ours a while now and it gets used every night to clean up after the kids!!!
#17
I had a look at one last year and they only hold a tiny amount of dirt

Whatever will there be left to do for my missus now!!!!:whistling:


If it were in my house, I might get the odd cup of tea due to the time saved :oops:

These are pretty poor really....no more than a gadget which i guess is why i bought one! It was 30quid in B+Q a while back - perhaps an older version but i would think the current version would be equally pointless. Doesn't really have any pick up, no worthy bristles to actually dig anything up.

Good price tho!
#23
the reviews on ebuyer site seem to be half decent. Naturally it's not going to pick up pebbles or coins. However, for general household dust, I reckon it should be fine.

I just think that it's amazing what less than 40 pounds can get you nowadays.
#24
Careful! These things are programmed with hidden code - one day soon, when you're out at work, they will all rise up and take over the world. It'll be kind of like Terminator but with a gang of small hoovers running amok.
#25
Actually these are better than a lot of the haters think! The suction power is so low because its more of a sweeping action it uses and the suction doesnt need to be that strong . I have 2 big dogs who shed a lot of hair and this copes amazingly well with it!

Not sure yours is the same as this one has a full size rotating brush bar like a normal vacuum plus a rubber rotating bar and a vacuuming strip for any bits left over. Reviewers on eBuyer tend to be negative if anything so the overwhelmingly positive reviews must underline its abilities. Also, whilst the capacity is small, you wouldnt do your whole house at once, rather use it room by room and simply empty it. The Roomba models have about the same capacity and are the worlds bestselling robot vacuum so at a quarter of the price this is a bargain.

Having read the eBuyer reviews, I'm less negative about this than I was, but one of them points out that the Roomba's capacity is about three times that of this device.

I'll need to ask my mother about that one - a few years back there was a similar offer on MSE and my mum asked me to rush her up to the place that was selling them...

I believe it was used once (as a test) when we got back from the shop and it has been gathering dust (still in the box) with all of the other MSE sourced bargains under her bed :whistling:
#29
Actually, it does seem to have a similar arrangement to a conventional vacuum cleaner - I stand corrected on that one. But I have my doubts that it performs the same as there is so little energy available.
#30
Well I use mine on a daily basis. Cant believe the amount it does pick up. Long as you empty it after each use its fine and saves me loads of time. I set it going in a room when I go out and come back to it clean.

Although the energy is low, what needs to be taken into account is that on a half hour program this will cover an average sized room several times. When you vacuum by hand generally you will only go over an area once. Also, this is not a replacement for everyone's main vacuum. I put it in a room or two a day and the house is kept looking clean n tidy but when I do a major clean out comes the Dyson.

Im so suprised that people are knocking this. Its only £37.99 and is a bargain, yes it isnt massively powerful, yes it doesnt have a dustbin sized collection box and no it wont manage the stairs but its a cracking piece of kit and has a years warranty. Just look at the 40 or so reviews on eBuyer which overall come out at 5 out of 5 stars.
#32
Can any of you users please tell me if the virtual wall should emit a red beam, or is it invisible? I have just returned my first robot as virtual wall did not work, received replacement and that doesn't seem to work either, although must admit that the actual hoover is quite good.
