I Heart Roomba!

  • Apr 16, 2008
  • by
We had a Roomba Discovery for about 3 years and recently upgraded to this model. This model is wonderful. It will automatically stop when the brushes need cleaning or the bin needs dumping, which I hope will help with the life cycle of the machine. This is great if you have pets. We run ours everyday for cat hair maintenance, and our house has never looked better. I've also noticed that my allergies have improved. My Mom liked mine so much, she got one of her own and loves it as well. We bought one for a friend, but they don't use it much. If you have a cluttered house with lots of "eatables" on the floor, this may not be for you. We had to learn what things the Roomba would and would not "eat" and then adjust. We can't leave certain cat toys or wires and chords on the floor, but that has helped us learn to pick up after ourselves! The only reason I am giving this 4 stars instead of five is because the scheduler kit I had for the Discovery is not compatable. I miss being able to set the Roomba to clean after I've left the house. I heart my Roomba!

There are certain things I frequently hear that don't surprise me - like "Twitter is down" or "Donald Trump has soiled his reputation again" - while others just demand checking out such as "I have a robot cleaning my house". You have what?      So I tootled off to Costco in another trip that started with one item and ended up with $500 worth of additional crap. Fortunately, I remembered the Roomba while loading up on New York strip, chicken breasts …

About this topic


With its updated cleaning system and coverage patterns, the Roomba 510 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 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 filtration system traps dust, pollen, and other allergens inside the unit.

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 won't 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 stairs and other drop-offs. In addition, invisible barriers can be set using the unit's Virtual Wall ...
