I used to own a roomba. It was an older model and maybe they have improved, but I'm not sure. It did an ok job. I know it takes a ton of power to drive and turn the brushes so what it does is quite amazing. I just thought it ran out of juice too fast. Some of the newer models will actually go back and recharge itself if it gets too low on battery. That's really cool. They are also quite loud, but as long as you schedule them to run when you're not home you'll be fine. Just thought I'd throw in my 2 cents. Hope this helps.
How is Rakuten for returns? If this thing isn't worth $299 I will be sending it back!
Edit: Looks like they're good. Never used them before but in for one! Thanks for posting as I was looking to buy one anyways.
