Yes! Had a roomba for 15+ years now (on my 2nd). I think it's like a dishwasher in terms of labour saving (dishwasher does not load or unload itself!). Need to make sure obstacles moved if you want that area cleaned and you need to empty it when full. And takes longer than a manual hoover. I love that it goes under sofa
slightly in between. they do map so they don't just bounce around randomly. they clean methodically and don't miss any areas. However the maps are 'volatile', meaning it maps anew every time it runs and doesn't store that floorplan for the next run, and therefore you can't draw no-go zones etc on a stored map like you can with more modern units. but it's def not dumb. it maps really well, and cleans really well, you just don't get to store the maps it makes. I have (and have had) many robot vacs and i still use my 960 almost everyday, just because it's so reliable. this is a good price and if i was in the market for a new one right now i'd def pick this up if £250ish was my budget limit. Next step up from this would be the roborock models, starting at around £100 more.
yes they're good. quite old models now so not as sophisticated tech as many on the market. But built like tanks and get the job done. Thinnk the VWs of the robot vac world - not flashy, but pretty dependable. Parts & accessories are cheap as chips and easy to find as well.
Seems to be £240.67 now Still good value though - I paid £260 odd in June
No comment. (lol)
