About the Product
The Roomba 614® robot vacuum uses a patented 3-Stage Cleaning System with Dual Multi-Surface Brushes, a specially designed Edge-Sweeping Brush, and vacuum suction to clean everything from small particles to large debris off your floor. Dirt Detect™ Technology recognizes concentrated areas of dirt and provides additional cleaning in those spots to help thoroughly clean your floors.
Roomba 650 does the vacuuming for you. The robot utilizes AeroVac Technology, maximizing air flow through its cleaning head to pull hair and debris off the brushes and into the bin evenly. Perfect for homes with pets or without, Roomba cleans deep to pick up dirt, hair, fur, and other debris. The newly designed larger bin requires emptying less often and the innovative composition of the robot’s longer-lasting brushes allows it to handle fibers such as hair more effectively, making maintenance quicker and easier than ever. Roomba can easily be scheduled to clean whenever you want—up to seven times per week. The included Virtual Wall confines the robot to specific rooms and areas and Roomba automatically returns to its Home Base to dock and recharge between cycles. All you have to do is press “Clean” and let the robot do the work.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
iRobot Roomba 614 Robot Vacuum
  • The well designed sweepers picks up a substantial amount of dust etc
  • Recharging the battery was easy since you do not plug it in like say your phone. The charger sits on the floor and tabs on the bottom of the iRobot mate with the charge tabs.
  • I ran the unit for a hour on a charge which I surmised was very good.
  • It vacuums much longer than my Neato vacuums without having to return to the base to recharge.
  • It can get mightily tangled up with thin wires dangling on to the floor - like a phone charging cable - I found this out the hard way - pull up cables and wire off the floor or put a barrier in front of the wires.
iRobot Roomba 650 Automatic Robotic Vacuum
  • I ordered this Roomba for the geek factor (who doesn't want a robot vacuum?) but also the fact that it will vacuum more regularly than I do now. I was amazed after the first few days of having it. My home smelled clean.
  • The portable barrier keeps it from going down the wide, single step into our music room. I just place it down there and let it do its thing, then put it back up to do the rest of the house. I'm going to buy another one to keep the Roomba away from the pets' water bowl.
  • Has no problem moving from carpeted to non-carpeted areas (about half an inch) and vice versa, and unto rugs, bath rugs etc.
  • With a dog and this running daily, I clean the bin and the filter every day. It takes at most 2 minutes to do and this will ensure you have roomba running at top performance.
  • It's quiet on carpet but moderately noisy on wooden/hard flooring. No biggy, it's vacuuming my house for me, I can deal.

What customers say about "Controls"
iRobot Roomba 614 Robot Vacuum
  • Easy set up and easy to use. Once removed from the box and the battery tab was removed (just pull the tape) it was good to go. It came charged up so I could try it out right away.
  • The Roomba changes from hardwood to carpet to throw rug to tile with no problems. My Neatos do this as well.
  • The users manual was easy to understand with clear illustrations BUT there were no tips or words of wisdom concerning use of the device.
  • This is a very basic vacuum. It doesn't have a display so I'm wondering how I'll get error message codes when something goes wrong with the vacuum.
  • It doesn't have the capability to schedule cleanings (you always need to press the button to clean).
iRobot Roomba 650 Automatic Robotic Vacuum
  • When it's done cleaning a room or low on battery, it returns to its charging station all on its own.
  • I was excited to know this model is supported by "Thinking Cleaner", a replacement faceplate for Roomba that allows you to control it from your phone over the internet or allow roomba to tie into your existing home automation system, like Vera or SmartThings.
  • May not have all the bells and whistles of he latest app driven models, but really...is that worth $600 extra dollars? This guy cleans without having to babysit. Just what I was hoping for!
  • I can't wait for some of the 980's features to become standard. I like the floor mapping and the wifi connection features.
  • Does not immediately return to charging station upon pressing the "dock" button, but wanders off and then eventually returns 10 minutes later

What customers say about "Features"
iRobot Roomba 614 Robot Vacuum
  • Docks itself after cleaning with battery life to spare.
  • Learns chair and table legs, moving around them to clean surprisingly well.
  • Spot feature is great for a specific area - works its way out in widening circles.
  • Accessing and Emptying the dust bin was straightforward and very user friendly.
  • It does get stuck on my back door rug and living room rug quite often and yells "error" at me and stops.
  • It is louder than I would have anticipated -- around the volume of a hand held dirt devil.
  • It did not find / enter our small sun room directly off of the dining room, despite a wide open doorway that is 5 feet across. Am hoping that by manually placing it in the room a couple of times it will find it.
  • Dust bin area is small. I have to empty it a few times during a session.
iRobot Roomba 650 Automatic Robotic Vacuum
  • You can set it to vacuum while you're out of the house and come home to a clean floor.
  • The timer function works well (it starts when it's supposed to)
  • You can also gently nudge it's front bumper and it will redirect. 3. Pick up all the large stuff (leaves, paper scraps, twist ties) , just like you would a regular vacuum, because it won't pick it up.
  • Make sure you replace the removable dust bin firmly (you'll hear a small click), otherwise it might fall off the first time the Roomba goes over a heating vent.
  • Difficult to clean the brush, especially when long-haired persons live in the house. Also, emptying the dust compartment and cleaning the filter frees quite a lot of dust into the air, which I should not have.
