This is a hot deal and +1 for that.

That being said, this "new model" is practically identical to the last generation. It lacks multi-room navigation, it lacks recharged & resume, it lacks more than basic bump/fall sensors (e.g. cameras, infrared, radar, etc).

I own a Roomba (770) and to be honest it is mediocre. The navigation is very stupid, and while it does get lucky sometimes there's no consistency there. This 860 is going to be identical to the 770 from what I can tell, only major difference is the new non-tangle rollers.

Here's a useful chart:

The 980 likely is competitive with Neato functionality wise, but not price wise. In fact Roomba in general are massively overpriced and this coming from someone who owns one. Who wants to spend $800 to get the same functionality that is $450 from a competitor.

Are these considered small electronics under their return policy? which would be 60 days.

There is a banner on JCP that reads $50 off the 860 http://www.jcpenney.com/dotcom/im...070216.jpg but it doesn't come off wonder if I should buy and then call CSR to get the missing $50 applied.

I do agree with you on some level.... The price now is worthy of consideration on the 860... yes, it does not have room mapping. however, the battery life and charge cycles from the new lithium ion battery are vastly improved from the 770, the new brush-less rollers are much better with no hair tangle issues, and the vacuum is much stronger then the 770.... Overall , at this price it is a much better machine..

I would also like intelligent room navigation, however, I am not spending $900 the totally overprice 980! I am still not a believer in Neato as I have just read too many customer service / quality issues....If that gets better I would like to try a Neato...... just my 2cents

Good point these are $450 reduced to all retailers until 7/2 by Irobot... so that is a valid point

Grid system cleaning like the Roomba 9xx series and the Neatos consistently LOSE to the 8xx series for cleaning ability. Consumer Reports chose the 880 over the 980 BECAUSE the grid cleaning is inferior to the existing Roomba back and forth (it's not "dumb", either, there is logic in which way it turns or what it does next). So for superior cleaning, an 8xx series will do the trick. Not the Neato, that's lost every unbiased Consumer Reports head to head test with a Roomba, and not the Roomba 980, which is a failed attempt to do grid better.

Also, the 770 is nowhere NEAR the 860 in features. The 860 obliterates a 770. The 860 has these features that the 7xx series Roombas do not:
  • better suction
  • better battery
  • better charge time
  • better run time
  • bigger waste bin
  • better filter (one large rather than two small)
  • Dual mode walls (can be a zone OR a wall on the 805/860, but not the discontinued 870, which is wall only)
  • Brushless, no tangle rollers

They can't be compared. It's like comparing a 7xx to a 6xx. The 8xx is a whole new universe compared to a 770. The 760/770 are essentially the entry level Roombas now.

Because you get what you pay for. The Neato (ALL Neatos) have lost to Roombas in every head to head test by Consumer Reports. Neato is a poor second choice to a premium Roomba like the 880.

Their review says because of price and because they didn't like the iOS/Android integration (and the lack of an alternative).

In their tiny room test. Try them again in multiple rooms, or in an open plan room with furniture. Their test environment is biased towards a bump-sensor Roomba, where Neato and the new 980 shine are in situations Consumer Reports purposely aren't testing.

No idea why you went on a giant rant about the 770. Nobody cares what you think of the 770, the 860 has all of the 770s functionality or better, it is a newer generation.

In a single room. But how does the Neato show its advantage when it isn't asked to navigate? The entire room is setup to be optimal for the pre-960 Rooma. It can just bounce from wall to wall and clean.

The fact they ignored the new navigation in the 960 entirely tells you everything you need to know about their test methodology, it is completely backwards.

If you're buying a Roomba in order to drop it into a single small room with furniture on the outside walls only then absolutely follow Consumer Report's recommendations. If on the other hand you want it to clean a FLOOR of a house, then look elsewhere. Consumer Reports created their room test before Neato even came out, and never updated it to more complicated situations. It is effectively a Roomba marketing tool that is backfiring on even Roomba as their own 960 is disadvantaged by it.
