? Robot Vacuum Cleaner: what's your experience?

I'm intending to buy a robot vacuum cleaner. As the whole thing is rather costly, I wish to ask if someone has one and whats the experience? Is it worth the money? Or do you still have to clean manually to get all the dirt?

Re: ? Robot Vacuum Cleaner: what's your experience?

My SIL has had a few generations of them. The newer ones are much better, but you still need to vacuum weekly. They don't do stairs (we have stairs to 4.5 levels), otherwise I would get one My stairs and kitchen I could do daily...

I read many reviews on them and they have changed the brushes on newer models, so look for a Roomba model 500+. For the Scooba they said they needed cleaning after every use.

Thanks for the reply.

I also checked those test reports, but nothing beats to a real life "housewife" tester.

I don't see how they can be very good if you have pets.

Other than that, every time I see one... I think of Woomba.

I don't think the link will work outside the US... can't tell right now.
