Anyone have a Roomba. I always thought it was more a novelty then a legit cleaning solution.
I saw an article though about it creates a map of your house so it knows it's layout and can detect where it gets most of it's dirt and focuses more on those area and the more it runs the more efficient it gets.
Still curious though if it actually works, vacuums good and doesn't break down or get stuck often.

I bought one for my mom for Xmas last year. It works ok. Its not a person so it doesnt know where stuff is on the floor so it is a bit of hit or miss with it. Its does prolong the time between a human vacuuming tho. So if you think of it as a little helper i think its worth it, if you think of it taking over all of your vacuuming i think you would be disappointed.
I think it's a great help. It wont replace a regular vacuum but it does pretty well with grit and pet hair.
Agreed, its good for maintaining but it doesn't have the power to get everything. You also have to have your area clear for it in which case it only takes me a couple minutes to run the upright vacuum over anyway.
We use ours every now and then for some maintenance, but still need to use a proper vacuum every now and then. It struggles with our dinning room table and chairs -- navigating between them. It also sometimes get stuck on the edge of the rugs (we have hardwood floors).
It was a gift a couple years ago -- I don't think I would have gone out and bought one myself. If it broke, I wouldn't bother replacing it.
