Good deal! I cannot comment on 770, but have a 980 (his name is Cogsworth. . .my wife actually refers to him as such). Works very well, but will comment our home is hardwood floors and low area rugs.

The 770 is very good but you're essentially paying $80 for a Kindle fire (which is too much). The 770 has been $299 in the last few months before, but I'd hold out for an 8xx series since you don't have to clean brushes like on the 5xx, 6xx, 7xx series. Brush cleaning to keep them working well is the worst part about any Roomba, and the 8xx and 9xx series eliminate that since they're brushless. The 870 was $360ish not too long ago, so I'd hold out for something similar instead.

It was direct from iRobot stacking their clearance price with a 15% off promo from the corporate perks site (anyone could sign up for). I'll see if I can find the original thread.

The thread starts off around $400, but the 15% off corporateperks method came up and pulled it down to $368.

How does the 980 do on hardwood floors? Any scratching of floors or baseboards? Does it clean the hardwoods well?

We have 2 large dogs. We let it run about 3 days a week. Downstairs is maybe 2000 sq/ft. Tile and hardwood. No scratching at all. Seems to get all dog hair pretty well. Rugs do well, but we like to say Cogsworth "poops" as the carpet fibers sometimes get dropped off in little clumps here and there (cheap carpets). Aside from that, we love it. He is loud though. You cannot watch TV or anything when running in same room.

The brushless 8xx and 9xx series are magical if you've had Roomba since the beginning and know the horrors of weekly brush cleaning to keep them in top shape. I literally have not removed a single tangle from the rubber rollers since we got our two 870s a few months ago. They shred long fibers as they come in, so you never have anything to do except empty the bin and shake off the filter.

I recommend the 8xx series over the 9xx series, though, because the 9xx series is an experiment with the grid cleaning system and it is proven not to clean as well as the 8xx series. The 8xx series is also quite a bit cheaper than the 9xx Roombas. I'd look for an 860 or 870.

It always cracks me up when people say that.

Yes, it is loud. It's a vacuum cleaner. It is just slightly less noisy than a regular vacuum cleaner.

There is no standard vacuum cleaner in the world you can run while watching TV in the same room.

But with this one, you can leave the house while it's running. Or put it on timer. You never have to hear it. That is kinda the whole idea with having a Roomba. They do the work for ya!
