Product review - Roomba vacuum

Roomba 350
 Because of all the dust storms we have at the house, I thought a Roomba vacuum would be helpful.

Although the wood floors are light colored, you don't see the dust. But you can feel it under your feet and I don't want to scratch up the floors....and with my OCD I would otherwise wind up going nuts - dust mopping several times a day.

My thought was push the button and you're done.

Yeah, not quite.

Please pay close attention to the beginning, you only get a quick glimpse of it. When the robot goes from floor to rug it leaves all the dust bunnies on the rug...wasn't too thrilled with that.

Also, several times during the cleaning process it would stop working because of error #9....I'll follow up with you when I understand what error #9 exactly is. When that happens you have to tap bumper and then press clean again. With time, the Roomba ladies voice got pretty annoying.

My over all rating wold be a 7 out of 10. It did clean the room, but I did have to follow up to get those dust bunnies. I was also a bit afraid when it bumped into things like the lanterns that you see in the clip or the side table; that it it would topple and break something.

In conclusion I would say it is more like a dust mop, not a vacuum. It is a great addition to my cleaning, but will never replace a real vacuum or dust mop.

Aloha a Hui Hou!
