- We spend the same about of time on floor cleaning that we did before (basically zero, we're lazy about that) and have drastically cleaner floors. Its basically push the clean button, and then ignore it.
- Not a complete replacement for a full-scale upright vacuum. You'll still want that for deep cleaning for special occasions.
- Absolutely good enough for routine day to day maintenance, even in a house with multiple pets.
- Climbs the 1/2 inch lip between the tile floor hallway and the carpeted living room with no issue.
- Collection bin is plenty large enough to pick up lots of cat hair (I'd heard that Roomba's had absurdly small bins)
- Quieter than a normal upright vacuum. But still noticeable.
- Pathing system is a little... special. But it'll get the job done eventually.
- Be prepared to spend some time cleaning hair out of the brushes. But that's no different than a normal vacuum.

My wife & I were at Costco. She talked me into buying a Roomba for downstairs, where we have about 1500 sq ft of ceramic tile, and a kitty litter box. The litter, & it's talcum powder, end up pretty much everywhere. It had been quite a chore to keep clean, with a vacuum, & a mop. I was skeptical that a Roomba would be able to tackle the job. Boy! Was I wrong. This thing is amazing. The first cleaning cycle took about an hour, & filled the dust bin. The floor was clean!

Another reviewer was complaining about not being able to change a schedule. Actually, you can set, change, & delete schedules. It's all covered in the manual.

So far, about 6 days of use, this little beast has worked very well. We have two large dogs who spend the night inside and a few hours during the day so there is usually a lot of hair to sweep or vacuum daily. This 655 does all the tile and the 3 low-pile rugs in the main common areas of the house. About 1600sf of area. We don't let it in the bedrooms because of socks sometimes on the carpeted floor. It did sneak in once and did a pretty good job. Main thing to remember is to shut rooms before leaving in the morning and to pick up small items you don't want sucked up. The battery lasts longer than it takes to clean and average cleaning time has been 1hr 10min. It easily gets under all tables, sofas and navigates around and between the dining room table/chairs: all six! It is noisy so we don't use it at night but the programming is easy and we set it for Noon and when we get home it's put away and charged up. Just clean the dust bin each day and every 3 days check the brushes. I swap out the clean set with dirty and put it away then I clean the dirty ones when I get to it.
I was dubious of the Roomba but when Costco had it on sale for $349.00, I couldn't resist. It has pleasantly surprised me.
