Editorial Reviews: Review
An intelligent vacuum that uses robotic technology to deliver barefoot-clean floors in-between more thorough cleanings, iRobot’s Roomba Pro follows in the footsteps of the original model (the first automatic vacuum available in the U.S.). But it also adds some great new features, including Spot Clean. Selecting this option sets the Roomba Pro spiraling around a small area up to three feet wide, great for cleaning up dry spills or extra dirt. Thirteen inches in diameter and lighter than your average bowling ball, this innovative vacuum will roam a room devouring dust, dirt, pet hair, and tidbits left behind from everyday living.

Setting up the Roomba Pro for its first sashay through the living room is fairly easy. First, the battery needs charging for at least 12 hours before its maiden voyage; simply plug the AC adapter into any outlet and it will shut off automatically when fully charged. After that, the indicator light’s different colors will show the battery’s charge status. The Roomba Pro can clean two to three medium sized rooms on one charge, approximately 60 to 90 minutes, depending on floor surface. Although it may look more like a Frisbee than a vacuum, the Roomba Pro cleans carpet, wood, linoleum, and tile, transitioning smoothly between those surfaces. It even senses and avoids stairs, and glides easily under beds.

Next, remove any clothing, papers, cords, and fragile items from the floor. You may choose to set up one or both of the fist-sized Virtual Wall units, which emit a beam to redirect the Roomba Pro, keeping it out of unwanted areas. Set the Roomba Pro in the center of the room, and press the green power button to turn it on. Then select the corresponding button for a small (10 by 12 feet), medium (14 by 16 feet), or large (15 by 20 feet) room. The Roomba Pro plays a few musical notes of greeting, then begins moving.

When the Roomba Pro starts cleaning, it travels around the floor in a spiral pattern. When its non-marring bumper touches a wall, the Roomba Pro follows the wall for a short time, then crosses the room in straight lines. It repeats this pattern until its cleaning time has elapsed, providing maximum cleaning coverage.

The Roomba Pro’s breakthrough three-stage cleaning system uses side brushes, two main counter-rotating brushes, and a high-efficiency squeegee to pick up everything from fine to large particles. The particle bin removes for emptying. The unit comes with an easy-to-follow manual and two replacement filters. Additional Virtual Wall units, battery packs, and a rapid charger can be purchased separately. Two D batteries (not included) are required for each Virtual Wall. The Roomba Pro is covered by a 180-day parts and labor warranty. --Rhonda Langdon

5Love it!, Dec 26, 2022
I love everything about this little dynamo because I hate everything about vacuuming! It's so cute, and even beeps when it is finished. I love how you can use the guides to keep it contained in one area. The only con is that it doesn't do windows! ;)

3It Depends On..., Oct 25, 2022
It's usefulness depends on a few issues. I have a rapid charger so that helps. I do not depend on this to do my deep cleaning, but it's great for surface stuff. It's also GREAT if you're back is killing you or some other handicap prevents you from using a real vacuum. Mine runs forever and picks up a lot of dog hair, though not ground-in hair. I cannot leave the house and come back and expect it to be done, 'cause it's always getting caught on something (a throw rug or piece of furniture), but works out great if I'm at home doing other chores. It saves no time due to the fact I must spend 15 minutes cleaning out the dog hair once it's finished. But I use it when I'm lazy or hurting and save the cleaning out part for when I'm up too it.

2Low power, short life, Aug 31, 2023

The battery in my iRobot Roomba Pro Intelligent Floorvac died after eight months of using it twice a week on hardwood floors. I might consider buying a new battery, but to spend $60 to keep the little guy working just isn't worth it because it won't clean my carpets.

I was very disappointed when I first got the vacuum. It just did not have the traction to keep moving on my carpet. It would go about ten feet and die. I have a plush carpet that is somewhat thick. I had heard that the vacuum did not work well on heavy carpet, but I thought they meant that it didn't do deep cleaning. I didn't realize that it would not work at all. I wasn't worried about the lack of deep cleaning. I just wanted it to handle the surface dirt and planned to do deeper cleaning using my regular vacuum.

I must say it worked fine on my hardwood floors and I used it weekly for them. It also seemed to work OK on rugs left on the hardwood floors--even those that were quite thick.

I'm giving it an overall rating of 2, but the breakdown would be:

4: hard surface
0: carpet

2an expensive toy, Aug 29, 2023
Yes it vacuums but not well and not anything big, if you want a robotic vacuum that does what your human powered vacuum does now, wait.

1Don't waste your money!, Aug 3, 2023
This product is a piece of junk! I've had two now and they both have the same problem. They run for 3-7 minutes and then I have to spend 1/2 hour cleaning out the insides. IRobot has admitted that this model has "flaws" that have been corrected in later models, but they will not allow me an upgrade so I am stuck with this piece of crap. Don't bother!!
