DandyMandy 25 Posted October 28, 2018 Share Posted October 28, 2018 and boy is it a disappointment. Vacuuming is a simple chore that just takes a few minutes, so I'm not exactly sure why I wanted the device in the first place. The idea of a cleaning robot just sounded wonderful. I went with an iRobot Roomba e5 and snatched it up during a sale. It doesn't have the same suction power an upright, it doesn't get into the corners like I can with a handheld, and it definitely isn't carefree cleaning. I pictured a machine that happily did its thing and docked itself to charge. Instead, the robot attempts to clean the floor, then I have to clean the robot. Inevitably hair and fur gets tangled inside and it needs emptied often. I thought maybe it was just my version that wasn't handy, but no, I borrowed a Samsung model from a relative, and it too isn't up to snuff. It's quicker to just vacuum the house myself. It looks better afterward, there's no dust or debris to deal with, and I can put it in the closet when I'm done. Do you have a robotic vacuum cleaner and love it? Someone out there has to love theirs because they're super popular. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
