About the Product
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.
Our Roomba 860 model features the AeroForce™ 3-Stage Cleaning System and Tangle-Free AeroForce™ Extractors and is proven to remove up to 50% more* dirt, dust, hair and debris from all floor types. Just press CLEAN on the robot or schedule to clean while you're not home.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
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.
iRobot Roomba 860 Robot Vacuum
  • It's a very well done robotic vacuum refined by years of experience in the marketplace. I am confident the Roomba will continue to improve. This is a solid 5 star performance to me.
  • Everything else. I have two dogs so if it hasn't been run for a few days it doesn't do well with picking up all the fur. Once its caught up it does great.
  • It picks up a lot of stuff. We have 3 cats and it handles that very well, both the cat hair and the litter. I like the way the side brush cleans corners and edges, places where traditional vacuums have a hard time.
  • Rumba can fit where you cannot with the regular vacuum. It’s very good at cleaning under the sofas and under the beds and, like I mentioned before, under the counters in your kitchen and bathroom.
  • It wont get the real dirty stuff up that a real vacuum does...its just not big enough

What customers say about "Controls"
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
iRobot Roomba 860 Robot Vacuum
  • I'm happy to have gotten the version without wifi, as that would have been completely useless to either of us.
  • Not having a control remote is actually nice, less remote to deal with. I haven't tried the schedule since we usually just press the clean button when we feel it is time for a vacuum.
  • Wish I had paid more attention and purchased one with a remote control. It is not the perfect solution for rooms with lots of obstacles, but after setting the room up it beats getting out the vac! All in all, I like it , and am glad I bought it.
  • The Roomba wanders around my rooms like a very drunken sailor! It's kind of entertaining the first time.
  • I cannot figure out how to turn the WiFi on? The Roomba 690 has an easy light that comes on and shows that the WiFi is ready.

What customers say about "Features"
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.
iRobot Roomba 860 Robot Vacuum
  • The Roomba is quiet for a vacuum but noisy enough to wake me from sleep. I have a small home and sleep on the main floor. I like my bedroom door to stay open. With the door closed or sleeping further away I expect this would not be a problem. I will probably get used to it.
  • I did not use the virtual wall other than for a quick test. it worked perfectly and was respect by the Roomba.
  • Cleans everyday and you dont have to think about it
  • This model Rumba works on a schedule that you set, which is pretty cool.
  • Does a nice job sliding around edges of furniture without slamming into them
