  • Roomba love!

    My husband got me this I robot roomba and I love it! It gets every inch of our floor and it comes with two sensors you can use to block off an area you dont want to enter. I leave its home downstairs and have it set every Monday, Wednesday& Friday to vacuum at 6am. Has made my life so much easier and my home looking clean with no pet hair. Then I just pick it up and leave it upstairs to vacuum when we go out. It also maps out your home, which is kinda awesome!

    Ive wanted a Roomba for years; when I logged in and saw the $100 price drop, I knew it was time to finally pull the trigger. I have bad allergies, thus have used my Dyson Ball vacuum to clean my hardwood floors for years. Its great at sucking up all the dust and bits out from between the cracks. I was worried that the Roomba might not be able to handle the job.Im IMPRESSED with how relatively quiet it is and how thoroughly it cleans.

  • Sheppard Hair Terminator

    Rumba does an excellent job of cleaning up the hair from our German Sheppard she leaves throughout the house. Rumba has yet to clog from the large amounts of hair lost daily, when I empty the bin it appears to have eaten a Shitzu. I rarely write reviews but this product truly deserves an excellent review.

    I have a bad back and its hard for me to vacuum. I absolutely love my Rumba. My house is looking so good. Im so glad she is going under the furniture, I havent been able to. I would not give her up for anything and if she breaks I will buy another one.
