Please tell me if these work as i desperately want one!

Thanks

Worth every penny! I hate hoovering.

I've had Horace for almost 2 years now and he's fab!

Yikes. Had no idea they were so expensive. I really want one!

Will it? Are the sensors aimed low? I have mine on downstairs when I'm doing upstairs bath etc so you can do that

Ps it has occurred to me that I can't leave it on when I go out as it will trigger the burglar alarm. Anyone found a way round this?

ooooh scooba...just looked it up. any more views anyone?

For wooden floors get the scooba! It hoovers then washes the floors - it's fab! I have a roomba upstairs (carpets) and scooba downstairs for wooden, tiles floors. Xxx love em.

Brian is a part of our family, I wouldn't be without him. smile

I love my Roomba!!! I've had him for 3.5 years and he's still going strong. Sometimes plays up a bit (anyone else get the clicking noise?) but still works well.

I have the very basic model but have thought about getting the one with the timer.... Maybe once ours stops working?

Whatever you an afford, I have a more basic model and a modern one. The basic one is still going, on its3rd battery about 5 yrs down the line

Which version would you recommend?

Cuntibobs Sun 31-Mar-13 20:46:23

If there was a fire, I would rescue my family first, and then my roomba. It's that good. smile

Love ROooobert my roomba

So good it posted twice!! No idea why that happened!

Well i have had 'Eric' for four days nowvand my carpets have never looked so good for so long. I can see i will still have to get the Dyson out ocaisionally (and for stairs) but he is fab so far. My carpets are clean throughout and i havent touched a conventional hoover at all over the weekend. I am amazed (and slightly disgusted!) by the amount of stuff he is getting up off the carpet each time. So far i would definitely recommend!

Livingthings don't forget to come back and tell us what you think! <envious>

ah, just looked them up. Think I'll stick to making DH do the hoovering instead!

TheSlug Wed 27-Mar-13 15:37:31

Love that video!! Never heard of a Roomba before but now I NEED ONE

LivingThings Tue 26-Mar-13 21:34:31

Ooh DH is obviously sick of listening to me talking about Roombas and has ordered me one!!! Should be here by weekend - super excited!!! (love DH!!)

Dudess Tue 26-Mar-13 21:23:50

No idea that this was a robot, but tomorrow I'm going to Roomba my way cleaning around the house; misinterpreted this as an adaptation of Zumba. Probably as I'm watching Obsessive Cleaners again!

SarahLundKicksAss Sun 24-Mar-13 17:55:14

It is the mumsnet law that any roomba threads must link to this

NotEnoughJamOnTheBread Sun 24-Mar-13 17:50:17

I've got one and I blaaaardy well love it! Wouldn't be without one now. Its programmed to start 5 minutes after we've all left for the school run and goes back to its charging base when its low on battery. It never fails to amaze me how much crap it picks up.
