Let Your Robot Do the Work!
I just recently purchased my second Roomba 560.<br><br>My wife and I are in our 60's. We live in a two story house with a combination of carpeted, tile, and hardwood floors. We put our first Roomba to work upstairs. Every morning at 3:00 AM, while we are sleeping, it leaves its docking station, cleans the upstairs, and returns to the docking station to recharge its battery. All we have to do is empty the dirt from its cannister, and occasionally clean its rotating brushes. Cleaning is quick and easy, No tools are required.<br><br>My wife likes it so much we just got the second one to clean the downstairs. These fine little robots help keep our house clean and they save us a lot of work.<br><br>The scheduling option is a really great feature. Roomba has a on board clock and it knows the time of day, and what day of the week it is. We can schedule which days we want it to clean, and what time of day we want it to begin cleaning.<br><br>When finished cleaning, or if its battery is running low, Roomba returns to the docking station for a recharge. They run very quietly, so we have scheduled them to vacuum the house while we are asleep.<br><br>Roombas do not have the suction power of a full sized upright vacuum, and they are not intended to totally replace these machines. But for normal everyday cleaning chores they are perfect. If used frequently, they keep our floors very clean.<br><br>Our greatest concern was how Zeke, our 100 pound Doberman, would react to it. He was curious at first, especially when Roomba bumped lightly into him. Now, when Roomba is cleaning, he just moves aside, lets it through, and pays it no further attention.<br><br>We will definitely replace these Roombas when they wear out with the newest model Roomba available at the time.Read full review

Ms. Ruby Roomba
She acts like a lunatic. Running every which way and bumping into things. Sometimes getting stuck, then calling for help. I raised some of the furniture with floor coasters. She does a great job of cleaning all floor surfaces. Better than my human pushed Miele. I will certainly buy another in the future.

Best Vacuum Ever
Pros: Easy to setup, program and run. Nice to come home everyday to a freshly vacuumed house. Amazingly the dogs let it be. We love it and even bought one for the Mother in Law.<br><br>Cons: Too loud for family to run at night, so it is programmed for the day.
