Our Review:

Do you think it would be cool if a robot could clean up pet hair around your house and alleviate allergy symptoms for you? If so, get ready to Roomba! At first glance, this hip cleaning robot looks more like a CD player than a vacuum. It can be controlled via remote from your seat and has a battery that lasts twice as long as previous generations. Its iAdapt technology avoids stairs, drop-offs, and off-limits areas. Its small size allows it to easily reach places that would be a pain for you with a traditional vacuum, such as under beds, couches, and along walls. It can even be scheduled to clean your house seven times a week, and you don’t even have to be there. Although this vacuum is pricier, the convenience is worth it for the working pet owner who needs a product thorough with pet hair and allergy and/or asthma relief.

Overview:

The future has arrived. The iRobot Roomba 770 Vacuum Cleaning Robot automatically cleans your carpet on its own. Other than pushing the button to start it, the Roomba 770 handles the entire job. It can map out the entire carpet and follow a preset plan to get into all of the corners and it can sense obstructions and clean around them. The Roomba 770 can even identify especially soiled areas of carpet and go into a special cleaning routine to deal with them.

The Roomba 770 looks like an oversize hockey puck at 21 inches wide and 3.6 inches tall. It weighs 8.5 pounds and contains a vacuum, a set of brushes, a battery and a sensor array. It also comes with a docking station where it charges itself.

The 770 looks for dirt with optical and acoustic sensors and changes its path to concentrate on soiled areas. When it finds an area of the carpet that needs extra attention, the 770 works in a back-and-forth vacuuming motion just as you would with a regular vacuum. On clean carpet, the 770 follows what will seem to be a random path to living creatures, but it is guided by an algorithm designed to get to every inch of the carpet.

The Roomba 770 works well in homes that have pets with its dual HEPA filters designed to trap dust, allergens and tiny particulates. The Roomba 770 can be programmed to clean on a schedule, up to seven cleanings a week, and you don’t need to be home when it does its work. If it runs out of battery in the middle of a cleaning, the Roomba will dock itself, recharge its battery and continue.
