After doing more research and reading some of your posts (Thank you!), I have decided to keep the Shark. As it stands, our home is open concept, all hardwood, and I don't see the need to use "no go" areas.
I am located by Square One in Sauga and have the Roomba i7+ scheduled to arrive on Sunday. If anyone wants to pick it up at full cost from me, just send me a pm and emt and I will hold it for you.
