iRobot® Roomba® 650 Vacuum Cleaning Robot
Sale Price $449

Coupon 20% off - You get this for signing up to email, or through one of their flyers

Total $360

Not bad if you missed the Black Friday deals

They also have the other Roombas on Sale but coupon states those are NOT applicable. Could give it a try anyway.

I believe they are equivalent to sweeping on hard floors.

This is a good approximation. I compare it to a drunk guy vacuuming. It runs every day and is very good for keeping a base level. Especially with pets. My neato botvac is basically a hair control machine, but it also gets litter that my cats track, and crumbs. I find it does save a lot of time and excellent for my small apartment, where dirt can really build up after a few days. I do an actual vacuuming job once every other week.

Might want to keep a watch on;

I grabbed one for $269 last week. I've seen it drop to that price twice this month. Refurbished, yes but it's Newegg and I've had zero problems with anything refurb from them in 3+ years now. Can't attest to its abilities yet outside YouTube videos because it's a xmas present.

Also depends on sq. footage and the layout of your floors.

Love mine, works perfect for hardwood floor in my condo thats relatively rectangular/square in shape. Just make sure most of the ground is not littered with things and your sofas/chairs are high enough so it can fit.

It misses the corners, but the main areas relatively dust-free and have way less maintenance for hardwood otherwise.

I believe on the fineprint of those 20% off coupons that they can only be used on regular price merchandise?

Roomba's have two types of rollers. The 8 and 9 series has the aero force or something type rollers, where it is two rubber tubes spinning creating suction.

The other kind, 6 and 7 (is there a 5?) uses brush rollers, looks like a huge pipe cleaner.

The advantage of the 8 and 9 over the 6 and 7 is that cleaning is a lot easier, nothing gets tangled with the brush.

iRobot also claims that it sucks harder, I never owned a 6 or 7, so I wouldn't know.

I hate the rollers on mine, they are constantly clogged with pet hair. When the time comes for another I'd spend the extra for an 8 or a 9.

Got this three years ago for my apartment as it was the top pick on Wirecutter/Sweethome. Three years later, it's still the top pick (because they don't think the newer/higher-end models add enough value for money): http://m.thesweethome.com/reviews/best-robot-vacuum/

Ultimately I agree with others here that it keeps a base level of neatness but doesn't fully replace occasional "real" vacuuming.

This is the advantage of the 800/900 series. I bought the 805 model from Costco and it has been much better!

I picked up the 761 on the weekend and have had it running everyday since. I would agree it does a base level cleaning. I haven't been blown away by its ability. Any upright vacuum would do better if you took the time to do it. Having said that it is pretty useful for lazy people or those who need a base cleaning (staying on top of let hair as an example).

Edit
The other thing I'd like to mention is pine needles. We put up our tree and because it vacuums every day it is keeping the needles to a minimum. I'm satisfied with this unit. I bought it at full price ($550) so I will likely exchange it now that I know they go on sale

Really? I just bought the 870 from Costco, had it for a few days and it sucked...not in a good way. I've got 1900 square feet of tile and hardwood, so it shouldn't have had an issue. The thing had pretty bad suction; it would pick up a bit of hair, but dirt or crumbs were left behind. I'm hoping the Botvac has better suction, or I'm just getting a central vac.
