    iRobot Roomba

    Hehehe get a load of this review

    Okay, so the Roomba was designed to vacuum whilst you are out at work or off doing more interesting things. It fails at this - there is no way you'll want to be out of the house when this little beauty is doing its thang! It's far too much fun watching little "roombie" toddle about, working its way around your furniture and belongings and then wandering off into the next room. I think I would have paid £200 for that alone... however, the bonus prize is that Roomba is also a workaholic. As I type he's just taken himself off into the bathroom to clean in there (good luck to him!).
    Hehehe a vaccume cleaner with personality, it almost reminds me of the 4 Trak anyone got one?

    I've been thinking of buying a Roomba (and it's brother the Scooba - lots of tiled floors!) but I've never been able to justify the costs. They are one of the coolest ways to clean your house though

    I got excited by that but I can not find any reviews of it, the website was registered a month ago & the manual is in very choppy English.

    My spidey sense is tingling.

    I think this is a cheap Chinese knock off that someone is claiming to be worth £400+ so the discount looks fab. They'll ship them and then disappear leaving punters with shonky cleaners. Happy to be proven wrong but I'm not going to risk it.

    Since we're moving to our first "bought" house, I made a deal with the missus - she can have a corner sofa, if I can have a Roomba.

    We bought the sofa on Sunday, heh. Game ON.

    It won't replace my Dyson, but with my spannered knee, 3 cats and a toddler, and a house with solid downstairs flooring throughout..it's too good an opportunity to pass up to have an autonomous vacuum that'll take a lot of the hassle out of it in theory.
