Pros and cons

According to our robot vacuum expert
  • Pros:
    This robot vacuum is part of the Roomba 900 line and as such, is iRobot's most feature-packed robot vacuum.
  • Pros:
    Thanks to the suction brush and rotating brush, this robot vacuum also removes pet hairs.
  • Pros:
    When the battery is empty, the robot drives back to the charging dock to recharge and will continue from where it stopped.
  • Con:
    Due to its round shape, this robot vacuum comes close to the corners, but doesn't clean them completely.
Product Expert robot vacuums

The iRobot Roomba 960 is part of the Roomba 900 series, and it's one of iRobot's most extensive robot vacuums. You can mostly see this in the advanced sensors, which the robot uses to scan the room and make an efficient cleaning plan. It also scans any places where dirt piles up and pays extra attention to those spots. The robot vacuum is equipped with smart area delimitation. This allows you to let it clean a room in a targeted manner, or to screen off rooms where it can't go. Is the robot vacuum out of power, even though it's not done vacuuming yet? It'll drive back to the charging dock, charge, then continue where it left off.

Mobile app and Smart Home voice control
The iRobot Roomba 960 app lets you do more than just turning the robot on and off. For example, you can easily set up a cleaning schedule for the whole week, and check how far the robot's gotten with its current cleaning schedule. A map of your home will show you exactly where the robot it and how the cleaning's progressing. This map constantly updates itself so you can track the robot live. Do you have Smart Home installed in your house? In that case, you can just ask Amazon Alexa or Google Home to start the robot.

"Betaalbare high-end robotstofzuiger"

Pieter Provinciael | 22 January 2020 | In the version: Basic model

  • Pros:
    Voelt robuust aan
  • Pros:
    Zuigt zeer veel vuil op
  • Pros:
    Gaat onder de kasten/bank
  • Pros:
    Ziet er strak uit
  • Pros:
    HEPA filter
  • Con:
    Draden moeten worden afgedekt, anders raken ze verstrikt in de Roomba
  • Con:
    Zuigt niet al het vuil op
  • Con:
    De afvalbak zit (in het begin) snel vol

De iRoomba doet waar hij voor staat. Als je alles wat opzij zet doet hij het kuiswerk terwijl je zelf iets anders kan doen. Hij vergeet af en toe een korreltje/vuiltje maar neemt wel veruit het meeste weg. Een robotstofzuiger die zichzelf ledigt kost al snel dubbel zo veel geld, dus als je dat er niet voor over hebt is de Roomba 960 een uitstekende aankoop

"Could be better result"

Olena Bazylevska | 5 December 2019 | In the version: Basic model

  • Pros:
    Looks good
  • Pros:
    App - nice to put on and off when cat makes sounds at night
  • Con:
    Too noisy for the cat
  • Con:
    Skipping too many areas - the result is mediocre

I need more time and remove most things in the room to see if it helps to improve performance

Would recommend it

  • Pros:
    Very good cleaning
  • Pros:
    The idea in general
  • Pros:
    Easy to use
  • Con:
    Not compatible with all wifi routers
  • Con:
    A bit loud

I live the idea! I hate vacuuming and it does it all for me. Fits under the bed, sofa and kitchen countertop - places which I don’t clean normally. It’s very easy to empty and keep clean, also the instructions provided are super easy to understand. It is a bit loud but normally I use it when I’m not home so it’s not a problem actually. The only problem is that my router is not compatible so the irobot doesn’t connect to my wifi network and I can’t operate it via app. It’s a bit expensive but for the quality and life improvement - worth it!

  • Pros:
    easy to use
  • Pros:
    fun to watch
  • Pros:
    doesn't give up easily
  • Pros:
    does a great job on flat surfaces and low pile rugs
  • Con:
    struggles with long pile rugs
  • Con:
    could be quieter
  • Con:
    could have better suction power

I absolutely love this product! I realise there are newer models but for the price I am delighted with its performance. I've complained about vacuuming for years and should have bought this a long time ago.

  • Pros:
    Easy setup
  • Pros:
    Integrations with smart-home
  • Pros:
    Scheduling
  • Con:
    Hide your cables!

I love this product. I don't know why I didn't buy it sooner because I hate cleaning, and I hate vacuuming. My apartment floor hasn't been as good as it is now, ever. It got under the sofa, under my bed and it just amazes me how much dust it continues to pull out. My apartment is more guest-ready than it ever was before.

  • Pros:
    Objects sensor
  • Con:
    A bit noisy
  • Con:
    Sometimes leaves dust behind

Worth the price and saves time cleaning the room, but it’s not perfect. As the cleaning mechanism rotates too fast, sometimes dust is trown far from the robot, in a place where it has already cleaned.

Thiago F Munck | 30 May 2020 | In the version: Basic model

For a house with 2 cats, is perfect!

  • Pros:
    Efficient even in rugs
  • Pros:
    Noise acceptable
  • Pros:
    Very smart in mapping the house
  • Con:
    Cliff sensors prevent to go on dark surfaces but bearable with a bit of troubleshooting

Love it.
