Sorry I should have said, £200 minus £20.

I've tested the voucher code in shopping basket.

That's a good price, cheapest I could find when I bought one last month was £187 from some outfit on eBay.

I sorry to say this but I have been working in Ireland and they are for sale all over the place. Ask any salesperson and they will tell you they are rubbish. Not voted either way but I would steer very clear of these

Surely it would be money better spent on a Dyson? MO anyway....

If you check out the review on The Gadjet Show it rates it really highly...but then goes on to warn about other similar products which simply dont perform! Maybe you are getting confused with those cheaper versions?

this is a CATastrophe

No I am not look at the silly 3 brushes poking out n the picture thats it!!! BTW thanks to the poster I am not slating your deal just talking about the product :-D

These are fantastic and this is a good price. Bought one a few months ago and wouldn't be without it. Press the on button, go out and when you get back the jobs done and the Roomba is docked and recharging. Way better than both our old Dyson and the current Henry. Read the reviews on Amazon!

As already mentioned don't confuse these with cheap copies that don't appear to work too well. Also bear in mind that they don't do stairs and if you're cluttered and messy these won't help - they like a clear run of floor and aren't going to tidy up after you!

These look immense, now I want one!!! Shame student loans don't stretch that far!!

I did a lot of research before buying it and as someone who actually has one I can honestly say I wouldn't have posted it if it were rubbish. The product wouldn't have lasted to the 5th generation if it were! Sure It's not perfect, well what is? And it's not the sort of product that will be suitable for everyone but a majority of reviews are good and most owners don't regret their purchase.

Whoever is voting this cold is losing the plot. Put simply...this is £50 cheaper than you can get it anywhere else...Hot UK Deal anyone!? Come on guys!

No you are wrong. (Sorry!) The brushes are just to get right in to the edges and SWEEP the detrius there under the Roomba where it can be picked up by the OTHER roller brushes and vacuum.

I've had a Roomba for years - and it is absolutely brilliant.

Just plonk in the middle of the room, hit go, and go off to work. Now that's how to vacuum! :thumbsup:

Thanks Mork.

£195.73 at Lakeland, who have ( imo) a flawless customer service. The red side whisks were prone to breaking off if thrashed by rugs too much and the replacements are 3 armed white ones apparently.
I love my roomba - but you do need a second vac for stairs, cluttered areas, giving the roomba a good suck every now and then etc. Also if you had dainty antique furniture it might be a bit rough when it nudges from object to object, though I've been meaning to put some foam draught proof sealer around as bumpers on mine. And they are fiddly to unpick pet hairs from it's axles. But the bliss of not having to vac the hall/lounge/diner but seeing it done for me while I sit with my feet on the coffee table. Had mine over a year and gave it it's first full service recently - took the whole casing off and got at the gears which were beginning to get hairy and would eventually have seized the motor. It wasn't too hard for this old dear to do and was actually quite enjoyable. And I love the way it says uh oh if it gets trapped.

My girlfriend bought one of these and I thought, oh well another useless gadget to find room to store. I must admit I was wrong. It does a greater job than anybody I have seen hoovering a floor (she only used it for hard kitchen floor with welcome rugs so can't say how good for general carpet) and no effort!!! What more can you say (except I wish it was cheaper).

For 180 quid I'd expect it to clear up after me! ;-)

In Debenhams Bromley for £160 today. Proper printed price label rather than a hand written one so probably nationwide offer over the weekend.
