    bought a "Roomba" a couple of years ago....worked ok once we figured out how to set the room up for it....then used our Dyson Animal on the same rug to see what the robot missed...LOTS!....so eventually the novelty wore off and we got rid of it (the Robot Vac)....waste of money IMHO

    Someone would have to take on my wife(suitably armed) to get hers away from the house. They do not have a large dirt hopper and require frequent cleaning. Ours is the dog hair model, don't know the designation-Roomba.
