I have a dog that sheds a fair amount. Would this bot be up to the task or should I spring for the 585/595 model?
I wondered this exact same thing. Reviews from pet owners over on Amazon have pushed me toward waiting for Woot to sell the 550. I was this close to pulling the trigger on this to replace my dead 4100 series. I miss that little guy.
Wine may not heal all things, but it sure will make you feel a whole lot better.

I've had a few models including this one. They do a very good job cleaning, but they can't be fixed once they start beeping and only going backwards. That's the bad sensor problem and the only thing to do is throw it out, or as someone else wrote, get a refurb from them for $180 or so.
I don't know why they refuse to fix their products when it breaks but I find that very annoying since they do seem to break within a year or two. I do have three cats.
I have four cats! And Two Roombas.
