Pros and cons

According to our robot vacuum expert
  • The systematic cleaning route ensures the robot doesn't skip any parts.
  • When the battery runs out, the robot vacuum drives itself back to the docking station to charge.
  • Because the robot has a self-learning navigation method, it need to do a few laps to properly map the spaces.

Description

Because the rotating brushes of the iRobot Roomba 698 rotate counterclockwise, dirt won't get stuck and the suction brush remains free. As a result, dust clouds and pet hairs are no problem. The robot vacuum recognizes places where there is more dirt and cleans extra thoroughly to ensure that everything disappears. If the battery is empty, the robot will return to the charging dock itself. So you don't need to remember whether the battery is still full. If you want a good cleaning performance and you don't need many extras, this basic robot from Roomba is a good choice for you. You can easily activate the robot vacuum with the iRobot app.

If you want a robot, this one is fine

  • You vacuum more often!
  • Useful
  • Sound

Initially I was a bit skeptical about robot vacuums in general because of the high 'gadget' content. I also thought, 'another device in the house'. But then I got busier and busier and wanted to give it a try, also because of the many enthusiastic reviews I read. General- My experience has been mostly positive. Don't expect miracles, it's just a vacuum cleaner, and how much time do you actually save at all, but still, it's nice to come back to the room where you put it to work, completely forget it, and then to see that it is beautifully clean. I also find myself putting it to work more often than I would ever have vacuumed myself, which makes me think the room is generally cleaner than before. Charging station/charging/battery life My requirement was to choose a robot that would return to the charging station itself, which seemed practical to me, and it is. Then you don't have to worry about it anymore. The charging times and the like do not matter that much anymore, because it will immediately start charging again. Sound- The noise is very annoying if you are in the same room, and certainly if there are several sounds around you, city sounds, someone on the phone, pets, the TV is on, etc. If there is still a vacuum cleaner constantly quite loud you don't want to be in that room anymore. But there's a simple solution for that: Turn on the robot when you don't need to be in that room. Then the sound is no problem at all. Build Quality- So far nothing has broken, but every time I lift the device I am afraid that something will break. This is because there are all kinds of plastic parts that can be detached and 'clipped' in/to the device. A handle to lift it would have been useful, but that is not the case. But all in all, this is really a minor issue, if you handle your stuff carefully, the build quality is more than adequate. Cleaning results- In general fine, in corners of course not good. You still have to do it yourself. Shocking and reassuring at the same time how much there is in the collection tray after one turn! Price quality- It remains a gadget in my eyes, but a handy one! It cleans well, but don't expect miracles from it, or lots of extra time or anything. When you see him at work, you understand that quite a lot of development costs and technology and the like are involved. So I can understand the price. I can't say that the price is not in proportion, but if you compare it with other things in life that you use more often, it remains quite an amount, but that doesn't really say much about this specific robot. You just buy a perfectly working product that you can enjoy, but it is a 'luxury' that you may or may not be willing to pay for. That is of course a personal choice! Hopefully this review will help you. You could have vacuumed your room at the time you read this, but with the Irobot at home you can multitask at will.

Functional entertainment

  • Handy if you have pets
  • Significant result
  • No pattern to discover

Bought as a gift. We have three cats and a dog and five people on the floor. Despite the fact that there is no rope to tie to his pattern, the floor seems considerably cleaner. The pets try to avoid the Roomba as much as possible but are less afraid of it than our regular vacuum cleaner. When the battery is almost empty, the device returns neatly to the docking station. Roomba recognizes high thresholds as a wall, but low thresholds are fine thanks to its large wheels with an extreme profile. However, on black carpet, the Roomba panics; it then starts spinning and doesn't know what to do, after which it eventually asks the user to move it. It's like a pet, top thing! I can look at it for hours (in that time I might as well vacuum the house myself).

AWESOME !

  • super handy
  • nice to have at home
  • more noise than expected

That I doubted this for so long, what a machine :-) It goes criss-cross through the room, whether there is a structure in it, I don't know, but in the end it seems to be clean :-)

No more vacuuming!

  • Fits perfectly under cabinets
  • At least 95 percent of all the dirt is gone
  • The cat is scared

We have a long haired cat that loses a lot of hair. In addition, he always runs the litter box granules out of the box. We had to take out the vacuum cleaner several times a day to clean it all up, but since the iRobot Roomba 605 this is a thing of the past. We never thought it would do its job so well, we are very pleasantly surprised! No more vacuuming and it is always perfectly clean! 95 percent of all the dirt is always gone, so it is immediately ready to mop. Super handy and so we no longer spare ourselves to mop after vacuuming! No more wasting whole days cleaning, we are super satisfied! I wouldn't go for anything higher. Because you then pay extra for a program that will tell you when which room needs to be vacuumed. Now we just choose which room is cleaned and when and we can put everything on the tables so that the device cannot get stuck.

Good price quality ratio

  • You can turn it on and go, it will automatically go back to the charger
  • He also grabs the corners
  • He makes quite a lot of noise

It is ideal for people who work a lot or have pets. This way you can still vacuum every day. Only once a week the ceiling and behind the cupboards is sufficient.
