What customers say about "Key Specs"
iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum with Wi-Fi Connectivity
  • The Roomba is the perfect little companion to vacuum my hardwood floors. Does a great job and even fits under the couch. Goodbye handheld vacuum and welcome to the family Roomba.
  • I have 2 dogs and vacuum everyday. Now I can go to bed and set the Roomba to vacuum at midnight and wake up in the morning with one less thing to do.
  • Works great on floors, rugs you name the surface it does it. Couldn't believe what it picked up
  • Does decend job at its scheduled time. It’s good for one surface, so if your floor is up and down it does not ride. It does not pick up bigger dirt.
  • The vacuum does good for surface dirt. It does not get everything but it does help
iRobot Roomba 890 Robot Vacuum Cleaner with Wi-Fi Connectivity
  • Does a great job cleaning both carpet and hard surfaces and is a big time saver.
  • Easy to set up, app works perfectly, cleans well. Battery last a long time
  • So far it has done a great job picking up the smallest particles. Not to noisey. I can turn the TV up a little but run it at the same time.
  • Very good on wood, tile, and carpeted floors. Very effective on pet hair. Debris capture capacity could be greater. Charge duration is reasonable, cleans 800 sqft on hardwoods per charge.
  • I bought this because we have a dog and was hoping it would help to reduce the fur balls. This has exceeded my expectations. It keeps both our hard surface and carpet floors very clean.
  • Only balled up Border Collie pet hair and did not suck it up. Did not deep clean, only surface cleaned.

  • Works as advertised. The smartphone app lets you set an automatic schedule for it to work. It also works fine with Alexa.
  • Quite liberating, my wife simply set the automatic timer, the main floor of our house gets cleaned everyday same time - haven't needed to manually vacuum since (just need to keep an eye on the collection trap)
  • Great vacuum, can control via wfi or via Google home, never have to vacuum first floor again
  • Perfect gift for my wife. She uses almost every day, can control from phone and do whatever we need to do while floors get swept!
  • Love being able to vacuum while I’m doing so many other things. I also like being able to control it with a app on my phone

What customers say about "Features"
iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum with Wi-Fi Connectivity
  • Had this for a few weeks now and my wife loves it! Smart features are amazing!
  • Dust bin is small and it is not that smart but works.
  • Does great job whole house has hardwood or concrete floors filled bin first couple nights then less to be picked up each night
  • Also I've go surprised by the amount of dirt to be taken out of the bin after each cleaning. Took me quite some time to remove all the hair. The provided tool was pretty helpful though.
  • It has not scratched anything (the bumper works very well), the bristles are very gentle on the hardwood floor and hasn't toppled anything.
iRobot Roomba 890 Robot Vacuum Cleaner with Wi-Fi Connectivity
  • I have owned several of these and would definitely recommend. Vacuum can get under bed, which I love the most. Device automatically docks itself when done cleaning.
  • I used the virtual wall tower to have it just vacuum one of my rooms. Surprisingly this Roomba really picks up well.
  • The 890 is packed with an extra filter for future use and also a virtual wall device which I set up next to the cat's food area to avoid water or food bowl spillage.
  • To clean the dust bin is very simple. Also, this unit comes with an extra filter, and a virtual wall barrier, which it is useful if you want to prevent the unit to get into a specific area.
  • Every time the bin gets full it gives a "bin is full" alert on the app and completely cancels the job, meaning you will have to restart the job multiple times in its entirety to finish it.
  • For starters, in any given room, the vacuum will room around bumping into walls and furniture, roll back and forth across the same area a few times, and leave huge portions of the room uncleaned.
