Pros and cons

According to our robot vacuum expert
  • You can program the robot several days in advance, so you can set a cleaning schedule.

  • When the battery is charged, the robot vacuum will automatically return to where it left off.
  • The robot vacuum doesn't have a mopping function.

    Good cleaning robot with good results, but limited app

    Bart | 6 February 2021 | In the version: Starter model gray | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Good Cleaning Result
    • Works autonomously along the course in an intelligent way
    • Battery life is little to reasonable (1.5 hours)
    • Limited possibilities of the app (less than described on the Coolblue site)
    • Still quite noisy

    This is our first robot vacuum cleaner. Overall, his performance is beyond our first expectations. It gives a good cleaning result and finishes the course in an intelligent and efficient way.
    He does make noise. You really can't let him do his thing while you're trying to watch TV, for example. The battery life is reasonable. but I expected more from that (about 1.5 hours). But the advantage is that it automatically returns to its charging station and, once charged, continues where it left off.
    Be careful with the description of Coolblue for this type (iRobot Roomba 975): there are a few things that are incorrect:
    - The app does not provide the option to set a "virtual wall". For this you really have to buy the hardware separately.
    - The app also does not provide the option to create a cleaning schedule per room. There is only 1 cleaning schedule, which does not take into account different rooms. So you can only draw up a schedule for the room in which the robot is located.

    You must do this!

    Claire van Leeuwen | 10 January 2021 | In the version: Starter model gray | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Easy to install
    • Noise level
    • Perfect household help
    • Put me to work too

    Why didn't I do this before!? I've been a huge mess ass for years, but this awesome thing cleans my whole house, and also encourages me to do a little tidying up. You have to remove the cables and rubbish from the ground yourself. And accidentally I only keep the rest of my house clean.

    Good suction, quiet, price / quality top

    vincent van eyck | 18 January 2021 | In the version: Starter model gray | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Quiet
    • mobile phone
    • easy install
    • suction power
    • battery drains quickly (2h max)

    This Roomba is a LOT quieter than its predecessors. It also sucks up the dirt much better. I have a deep pile mat and three dogs. This Roomba rides smoothly and effectively sucks up the dog hair from the mat. After driving 3-4 times, he knows your house and visits it nicely. After his session, he will send you a report on the mobile with what he has done and whether he needs to be cleaned/emptied. Highly recommended in my opinion!

    Not suitable for pet hair. Otherwise great device
    • Easy to operate
    • Pet hairs get really stuck between the wheels, even if you clean the Roomba every time after vacuuming.
    • The receptacle is much too small for us.

    Tray too small if you have dogs. Too bad this vacuum cleaner is 'Coolblues choice' for the option 'against pet hair'. I regret my purchase.

    Great, I hate vacuuming.
    • Can make a sock disappear here and there.
    • Makes a nice floor plan.
    • He doesn't put your shoes neatly in the closet.
    • Can't fold laundry, but can drive over it.

    Works properly. Coming home to a dust-free house is recommended.

    Good product
    • Works easily
    • Cleans well

    Recommended!
    • Does what it's supposed to do!
    • Beautiful design
    • Easy to control from phone
    • Some sorting before you get it completely
    • You consider the roomba as a roommate....

    Nice device that takes work off your hands

    Good quality robot vacuum cleaner for a great price!
    • Goes everywhere and even grabs the corners
    • Looks stylish with nice bronze color
    • Even goes over our thick dress of almost 2 cm with fringes without breaking it
    • Dog hair goes away with ease in vacuum cleaner
    • Great that everything is cleaned in the evening / night and the day starts in a clean living room
    • That the vacuum cleaner doesn't have arms to lift stuff and suck underneath ;-)
    • Too bad you have to buy a virtual wall separately

    Very happy with our “Pim” robot vacuum cleaner! This is the 3rd robot vacuum and it outperforms the other 2. It goes over our thick fringed rug with ease without getting stuck or breaking it. This means we don't need a virtual wall.
    After 3 times, Pim knows his route and is ready within an hour with the living room of 80 square meters. Goes neatly around the stuff but does take the corners and edges. Previous vacuum cleaners often hit cabinets and chair legs.
    This vacuum cleaner sucks up dog hair and sand from walking in and out.
    Easy to operate via an app and easy to keep clean.
    Put some stuff aside in the evening, such as the dog's drinking bowl, but what a joy to start in the morning in a clean living room :-) and what a time it saves!

    Fairly disappointing
    • Powerful
    • Makes the whole house tidy
    • Does not collide hard against the furniture
    • Very noisy
    • Continuously hangs on a regular mat
    • You cannot program a map
    • Cannot be set in Dutch

    I expected much more from this device. We have 2 flat mats, which he simply blocks on. Sometimes he gets over it. Sometimes not. Often also gives the message that it has jammed just halfway through the living room, and it does not remember a map. He creates a map every time, and you cannot “teach” your own map.

    Good help in the household.
    • Adjustable cleaning program
    • Works well with cat hair (ragdoll)
    • App to turn on machine remotely
    • He makes a map of where he's been
    • Good to clean
    • Continues if he gets caught up in something

    We have two long-haired cats that shed terribly. This roomba cleans well but more importantly, it is also easy to clean. The cat hairs get everywhere. The rollers and the front wheel are very easy to detach. Every time we empty the bin, we also take it off to get the hair out.

    Once a week I put him on the top floor so he can do his thing there too. The device is smart and keeps track of where it has been so that it always has the entire floor free of dust within 45 minutes (several rooms)

    I turn it on myself while I'm doing the housework. The appliance makes noise like a vacuum cleaner makes noise.

    He got stuck with us twice, once in a birthday garland that had come down. And 1 time in the net curtains. But we just throw the latter up when the vacuum cleaner in that room starts working.

    We are very happy with it!
