Exactly how many iRobot vacuum cleaners does woot have in the warehouse? They are for sale more than any other product. They should release a mega-iRobot vacuum in the iRobot warehouse and sweep them all up and be done with them.

Got one several woots ago and loved it. Forced me to clean under my bed so da-roomba could go under there and clean for me. One of the kids tried to ride it and burnt out the motor. IRobot sent a replacement no questions asked.

since i am wayyy to lazy to search, how does this roomba compare to the 540?

i purchased the 540 for my parents and they LOVE it... how would this little guy fair against a "shedless" dog?

fyi the dog sheds, just not as much as say a golden reliever (r.i.p. billy mays)

How large of a space can it clean on a charge?
I've probably got 700 square feet on each floor, and I don't mind taking it upstairs and down.

It's best to get one for each floor. Please have 3 floors.

I recommend buying a SquareTrade warranty with this since it's a refurb.

Get 30% the SquareTrade warranty with this coupon code: FALL


btw: I love my roombas

If you already have or don't want a roomba, just buy one and make DJ Roomba!

Ahhhhh.

Now, it's officially a Woot-off.

As long as you don't ask it to violate the Three Laws of Robotics.

I've owned three Roombas, and this is by far the least durable. All the Roombas got the same use in similar spaces, but this one malfunctioned within a few months, and the replacement (refurb also) malfunctioned as well. Neither appeared to be a battery problem.

Finally put my 2 roombas in the trash. Too frustrating trying to keep them working after purchasing batteries every year at $50 a pop. Great concept... poor construction

I bought mine last month. Just a friendly heads up, it DID NOT come with the brush cleaner that new units do. Also, make note there is only 1 virtual wall as opposed to the 2 these models usually come with. Neither of these are dealbreakers, just wanted everyone to know.

Not the 530, and you can't get the two functions together. What you want is the Roomba Spiderman edition, which climbs walls and cleans those pesky webs in the corner.

Then you'll need the Roomba-COD edition, but it has a tendency to camp out under things and snipe at your feet. Totally unfair and banned from online playing.

The code is supposedly not valid on Woot warranties. If you look at the fine print of the e-mail it says: "Coupon offer is not available for items purchased on Amazon.com, Buy.com, Crutchfield, Abt Electronics, Vann s Inc and Woot.com."

Love it, love it, love it. We have 2 of these from previous woots and have no complaints. With 2 sheddy dogs in the house, we're constantly amazed at how much hair gets picked up.

Constantly? Meaning you are amazed at this very moment?

I don't know about the 540, but I have two dogs that shed like crazy (3 in long hair) and the roomba works great. I have to clean the brushes frequently, but it is not difficult to do.
