Beware! Don't Waste Your Money on a Product That Won't Last Long

  • Dec 30, 2007

I'm editing my review because I am so diappointed with this product. I had it under 16 months when it started acting up - would jerk around in a circle and never go forward. I contacted iRobot through their tech support on the internet and after some back and forth was told I would have to replace it, that it could not be fixed. We paid almost $600 for this product and it didn't even last two years. iRobot offered to sell me another one at a discount and I refused. Then they coudn't seem to understand why I wouldn't want to spend more money on a product that doesn't last long enough to count. If that isn't bad enough, they're constantly sending me emails, asking me to come back. Forget it!

I could understand a short life span if I hadn't paid so much money, but I refuse to buy another product that is not worth what is charged.

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read

Well, friend Christy, ours has lasted three years now and still "eating our spills" like a champ. Gets the cat hairs too... You must have gotten a defective one??? Have no idea, but I still enjoyed your review. It made me wonder why and it was a fun read because I can LOL at you getting all riled with this cute, harmless little critter. ;-)

VRooooooooomba! VRooooooooooomba! Seeing Roomba--the iRobot 560 vacuum cleaner--run around my daughter's house like "The Little Engine That Could" makes me smile. In fact, when they first got it, the whole family gathered around to watch it suck up the dirt and see what happened when it approached obstacles and how easily navigable it is. An added treat was watching their little black dachshund, Molly, chase it around as though it were her new playmate. What a riot! We laughed like crazy!     Wh …

About this topic


With dramatically improved navigation, cleaning coverage, vacuum pickup, and particle filtration, the Roomba 560 vacuuming robot picks up amazing amounts of dirt and debris with the simple touch of a button. The powerful unit features innovative spinning side brushes that grab dirt and dust from corners and along wall edges, as well as two high-speed, counter-rotating brushes that pick up pet hair, cat litter, food crumbs, and other debris from floors. The vacuum sucks up the debris and deposits it into a large, easy-to-empty, bagless dust bin, and its improved fine-filtration system traps dust, pollen, and other allergens inside the unit, reducing infiltration into the living environment.

For added convenience, the vacuum's cleaning head automatically adjusts to transition from wood, tile, and linoleum to carpets and rugs, while improved anti-tangle technology ensures it will not get stuck on cords and rug fringe. If the unit begins to pick up a cord or carpet tassel, it will automatically reverse the direction of its brushes to extract the item. A gentle-touch bumper system senses obstacles so the vacuum automatically slows its approach, gently touches the obstacle, then redirects to continue cleaning under or around the object. Because it cleans under beds, couches, and other hard-to-reach areas, it actually vacuums more of the floor than a standard upright. The vacuum also senses dirtier areas and spends more time cleaning them, and it uses built-in cliff sensors to avoid...
