Overall information

Suction power iAdapt 2.0 Navigation

I believe that with the Navigate system in your unique home, cleaning around clutter and avoiding stairs is easier than ever.

Autonomy 90 – 120 minutes

It can cover much larger than you can expect when scheduling for it.

Scheduling Yes

Of course, this capacity is enough for your home.

Filtration system efficiency HEPA filtration.

Most important, this feature helps a vacuum cleaner to work effectively, it has to maintain powerful suction the whole time without being clogged up.

Weight and Dimensions Weight: 12.9 pounds

– Dimensions: 13.9 x 13.9 x 3.6 inches

A little heavier than the Roomba 650, but the dust capacity is bigger and contains better with an update of the AirBase.

Warranty One-year limited warranty.  

Including a 6-month warranty period, but you do not have to use it too much due to the 3rd party attachment that iRobot provides in the box.

Accessories  Authentic iRobot Parts
Special features 3rd Party Replacement Parts
Usability 3-Stage Cleaning System agitates, brushes and suctions floors

iAdapt 2.0 Navigation with Visual Localization enables Roomba to navigate and clean an entire level of your home

Runs for up to 120 minutes, then automatically recharges and resumes cleaning to complete the entire job

As far as I am concerned, all the dust from pager pieces to cat hair is cleaning so clear. Also you can work well within many types of floors: hardwood, tiles, carpet.


Considering to be one of the most competitive price of all products, I believe this price is something that you cannot take your eyes off of it.

What customers are saying

Review summary

With almost 1,000 reviews on this product, I have also done many tests on this and will specify further in my iRobot Roomba 980 Robotic Vacuum Cleaner review. Overall, many customers have been satisfied with this vacuum, like a four-star review from Amazon. But in a bigger picture, there are some problems stay on the attachments that iRobot offers to customers. So, besides the suction that very worth the price and the lightweight design, this iRobot also needs to improve the hose and the wand. Yes, most complaints from my customers are about the hose which makes the cleaning process extend from 15 to 20 minutes when comparing to a Dyson.

Pros and Cons

In the bright side, if you are looking for an inexpensive but stills covers a strong suction, this is your choice base on the iAdapt 2.0 Technology that iRobot offers you. Moreover, you can easily adjust the vacuum to turn to clean different kinds of floor without being interrupted. And one more thing, this vacuum cannot hurt your arms when moving, it is so light when comparing to a Dyson or even a Shark vacuum.

In some cases, you may find this vacuum not as you expect because of some drawbacks. First, it is about the major design flaw. In fact, some people found that the iRobot vacuum started eating their carpets due to the unchangeable height. Furthermore, it can charge you a lot when the accessories come apart.
