According to our robot vacuum expert
  • You control the robot via an app on your smartphone and via Amazon Alexa or Google Home.
  • The robot has a systematic cleaning route, so it won't miss any areas.
  • You get a virtual wall, which allows you to indicate where the robot vacuum isn't allowed to go.
  • Unlike the i7 +, this robot vacuum doesn't empty its dust cup at the charging dock itself.

Including Base Station, the best Vacuum Cleaner there is

  • Self-legend
  • Setting specific rooms
  • Expensive, but opt for when purchasing.

I've had a Roomba for 9 years (first a 'dumb' 560), recently the 'smart' 980, but despite my satisfaction with the Roomba, there was one thing that was missing all those years: if you don't empty the bin, then the robot useless (and practice showed that unfortunately we didn't always think about it either). Emptying is not a big job, but also not the most pleasant: emptying the container still raises dust while you knock it over the garbage can, but the solution has come: the i7+. This is what I've been waiting for all these years. i7 robot The i7 itself is significantly quieter than its predecessors. This is probably because it has lost the extra suction motor from the bin to make way for the automatic emptying of the bin. At first we always wanted to avoid running the Roomba when we were at home, but with the i7 we can hear it, but it's easier to ignore it as background noise. Nevertheless, the i7 (albeit based on 1 week of experience with it) still cleans as well as its predecessors. We have 2 cats and 1 dog, so frequent and good cleaning is essential to keep our house dust and hair free. The i7 (and its Roomba predecessors) is always a great help. He also seems to have less trouble with our mid-high carpet. Something that the 980 could not always come up with, the i7 succeeds every day. Finally, the i7 has better buttons on top. Not mechanical where things can break faster, but touch buttons, which respond well (but which you rarely have to use if you have Alexa or Google home). i7 base station Yes, this thing just does what it was made for. He empties the bin and does so quickly. It makes a lot of noise, but that's as much noise as our Dyson, but the difference is that the Base Station is ready after 10 seconds and you don't have to do anything yourself. The collection bag is conveniently made, with the opening of the bag closing itself when you take it out (useful to prevent dust from being accidentally blown out of the opening when you replace it). After 1 week about a quarter full, so it can certainly last a month, but the cleaner the house becomes again, the less quickly this bag will fill up, I expect, we'll see in a few weeks and if it is possible I will update the review on this . Software Connecting for the first time is easy and the app is simple but gives you the options you need. If you're used to the 980 or other smart Roomba versions, the app won't be much different. However, the biggest difference is the new option to set up rooms and therefore to have rooms cleaned separately. It was difficult for me to estimate the added value in advance until you can apply it yourself. Why? With the 980 you could only do ALL rooms, or you had to pick up the roomba, bring it to the room and start it manually. With the i7 you imagine in the app, or at our house we say "Alexa tell Roomb to clean the office" and the Roomba drives straight to the room, cleans there and drives back to the base station, where the bin is emptied. Why this is useful is because you are now more inclined to have a room cleaned immediately (a small room takes about 15 minutes). Drop some cat litter on the floor: send Roomba there. This, coupled with the fact that the i7 is much quieter, means we can let it do its thing right now without it or the whole apt going through and running for 2 hours just because we want to get 1 room clean ( which is now only 15 minutes). With the 980 we just let it do its round in the morning the next day when we were not at home or we took a dustpan and dustpan ourselves. Gone are the days with the i7's new smartmaps. Price It's expensive, but the convenience is worth it.

Very good

I first had the Roomba 960 in itself a robot vacuum cleaner which is ok, occasionally stuck and mainly "dumb" navigation, in the dark almost not working due to poor navigation in low light. This I7 is SO ridiculously better in every way, no need to search for minutes. Is quieter, only needs to be emptied once a month. And the best thing is you can indicate "deadzones" on the mapping of your house where it will not go, so you no longer need those "virtual walls" and no stupid cupboards in your house Navigation learns very quickly, he also has a trainigs mode, find his house very quickly

Fantastic device, we should have done this sooner!

  • Highly recommended for dog hair
  • Very nice via the app and google home
  • It makes a little more noise when sucking than hoped

Our German Shepherd sheds all year round and since the roomba is in the house, it saves us vacuuming 2x 15 minutes per day. Even on the doormat there really isn't a single hair anymore when roomba has ridden. It is quite an expense but it is really worth it! And the dog also likes that he rolls tennis balls away :)

Robot is well worth its price!

  • Noise is less than traditional vacuum cleaner
  • Don't get stuck

Had I known this, I would have bought myself a robot vacuum cleaner much longer. We have two short-haired (read: annoying stinging hairs) dogs. The robot sucks up these hairs nicely. A plus is that we don't have to empty the trash can every day because this happens automatically. The dogs are not at all afraid of the robot, while they are afraid of a regular vacuum cleaner. The installation was very easy. After unpacking and installing the app, we immediately tested the robot. Amazing how fast the robot gets to know the space. I use the robot for both upstairs and downstairs. His charging station is downstairs, but that doesn't stop him from immediately recognizing the spaces upstairs. The robot is not cheap, but it is well worth the money!

Should have gotten the Romba i7+ sooner!

  • Empty itself so you can be absent for a week
  • You can decide for yourself where and when he has to vacuum

Cleans thoroughly and takes the corners neatly. You can decide for yourself where to vacuum, we find that very handy! We couldn't miss this Romba i7+ anymore. Should have gotten these a long time ago! Especially with our four-legged friend, who loses quite a bit of hair.

Does what they promise what I have to do

  • does what i have to do

Is a great device, just stick with it the first few times, he seems to be fond of small cables, but once safely concealed, it is a great vacuum cleaner

I should have done this much sooner.

  • It doesn't skip anything with vacuuming, it's neat and precise
  • It controls everything itself, you can easily control it remotely via the app
  • When he empties the dust container he makes a lot of noise

It's easy, it cleans everything neatly and you don't have to worry about anything anymore. He empties himself, ideally. If there is a problem, he will indicate this in the app. I've had an IRobot 650 series for 5 years, but this is a good upgrade. The IRobot i7 is much more luxurious than the IRobot Roomba 650. It took a while before I had it, but Coolblue helped me a lot with this. Super service by phone and in their branch in Groningen.

De iRobot stofzuiger is een geweldig product en erg gebruiks

  • Flexibele inzet door app
  • Hele schone vloeren

Vandaag werd mijn iRobot in een hele grote doos afgeleverd. Erin de Robotstofzuiger, een zgn. Clean Base om automatisch het vuil af te voeren uit de Robotstofzuiger en een aantal accessoires en reserve onderdelen. Alles ziet er mooi en cool uit. Het product is eenvoudig in gebruik te nemen. Eerst zoeken we een geschikt plekje voor de iRobot en sluiten de Clean Base aan op de stroom met de Robotstofzuiger op de daarvoor bestemde plek. De batterijen zijn als service reeds half vol, maar het kan geen kwaad even een uurtje te wachten tot ze helemaal vol zijn. Ondertussen heb ik de app gedownload op de telefoon en deze verbonden met de iRobot en de laatste software updates geïnstalleerd. Dat verliep alles probleemloos. De volgende stap is het maken van de digitale plattegrond van ons appartement. Het gaat om een oppervlakte van ongeveer 90m2. We houden niet van vieze vloeren en ook niet van de terugkerende kosten van een hulp in de huishouding. Vandaar de keuze voor deze stofzuiger met een internet aansluiting voor de gewenste flexibiliteit en de mogelijkheid alles aan onze persoonlijke voorkeuren aan te passen. Daar komen we gelukkig helemaal aan onze trekken, zoals blijkt. Voor het maken van de plattegrond met behulp van de zgn. Smartmapping Technologie hebben we de Robotstofzuiger twee keer zijn daarvoor bestemde trainingspak laten uitvoeren. 90% van de oppervlakte was daarmee in kaart gebracht, voldoende voor het echte werk. Interessant is nog dat ons appartement 4,5 kamers heeft, maar dat we de plattegrond in 9 delen ingedeeld hebben. Dit is echt heel handig want je kunt de Robotstofzuiger bijv. opdracht geven alleen te zuigen in bepaalde delen of vaker bijvoorbeeld te zuigen in delen die snel vuil worden. Erg efficiënt. Wat ons ook erg aanspreekt is de bediening in afstand. Ben je bijvoorbeeld een paar dagen weg, kun je de iRobot op afstand via internet zijn opdrachten geven, die hij dan feilloos uitvoert. De vuilafvoer van de Robotstofzuiger naar de Clean Base zorgt er voor dat het Robotstofzuiger nooit vol komt te zitten met vuil. Helemaal top. We zijn nu enige tijd actief met de iRobot en zijn heel erg tevreden en nauwelijks werkzaamheden van onze kant. De vloeren zijn echt schoner dan voorheen en we plannen de activiteit op momenten dat wij er geen last van hebben o.a. bijv. als we afwezig zijn. En aan al onze wensen van flexibiliteit van inzet en gebruiksgemak wordt voldaan. Een zeer aan te raden product.

It's a great product, just do it

  • Does what it's supposed to do
  • Takes up little space
  • Has trouble with reclining chair legs

It's a great product for people who hate vacuuming as much as I do

Recommended, when price is not an issue.

  • Really good for hard floors
  • good app
  • expensive

Our large house, family and pets are kept clean. You can set everything properly via the app. It is a good product and worth the money. Still takes some time and attention in the beginning and I wonder how long it will last, given the price and the manufacturer, a long lifespan should be expected. ,

Not mechanical where things can break faster, but touch buttons, which respond well (but which you rarely have to use if you have Alexa or Google home).

Yes, this thing just does what it was made for. He empties the bin and does so quickly. It makes a lot of noise, but that's as much noise as our Dyson, but the difference is that the Base Station is ready after 10 seconds and you don't have to do anything yourself.
