Yes it does.
I just bought the 801 from Walmart on clearance at $399. No virtual wall.
I wish I waited - I would have definitely bought this one.
I believe the 805 comes with 2 dual mode virtual walls as well ($65 a piece at iRobot).

anyone have lowest history price for this at costco?
This is the lowest it's ever been, but it's been at this clearance price for the last few months, I guess they are still liquidating existing stock.

Would this 805 model be worth upgrading from a 595 which is still going strong after several years?

I have 2x660's that I just upgraded batteries on and this price is damn tempting!

Do you ever struggle cleaning the brush? This one has a different brush design.

FWIW I upgraded to the 801 from a 9 year old 560.
I'm assuming my experience would be similar to other 800 series Roombas.
The 801 is so much quieter.
And the new brush design is far superior to the bristle-brush. We have a dog and my wife has long hair and it was a constant issue cleaning the brushes on the 560 after each use.
These new brushes seem to move the hair and fur into the bin much more efficiently than the old ones, which would trap and wrap the hair around the brush.
Also, the 801 has much more powerful suction.

It's a good price. I bought a used one for 230$ I had a 500 series before. This one travels faster and since the brush is just rubber rollers you don't have to cut/untangle hair from the rollers as often. On my first test my used one ran for over 2 hours and the battery light was still green.

Anyone knows how it compares to a neato D5?
I lost the ability to remember things when I lost the right to a full night's sleep.

I believe the 8xx series have a new technology, longer-lasting battery, compared to the lower series. And a much better brush design as ciuvak had mentioned.
I am seriously interested. My Roomba was one of the very early models, dead now even after I replaced the battery.

Does anyone know if the "cash and carry price" is any lower if buying in person from a warehouse?
