Same price on Home Depot and in addition comes with 3 Extra Dirt Disposal Bags. I was also able to use my 10% HD coupon.

Fyi, Per the infographic listed on OP's product page link, this model does not offer "smart mapping" like the i7/s9.

Based on my research this means it does NOT offer the ability to setup "no go" zones. IMO being able to save No-Go lines on a persistent floorplan map is a must-have feature, and the main reason I've become so brand loyal to Neato the last few years. Neato offers the No-Go feature even in their low-end models. With the Roomba i3+ model you receive a snapshot map of its most recent cleaning job for 'edutainment' but it doesn't provide any additional functionality.

299.99 at BestBuy, but for good reason. This thing is absolute garbage. I have had 2 in the last two months and out of my return window now. They work about 90% as one would expect for a week, then after that they are completely useless...

We have an i9 and are on our second one. It worked great for two weeks and just now we are having issues.

I'm also having major issues with mine, skipping whole rooms on second or third runs. Support is friendly but totally unhelpful. I've reset it four times in six months and would return it if I could.

I had one of these for a bit. Vacuum performance is decent, but the CPU used is a very weak MIPS design that has to pause to recalculate where its been after cleaning a small section. Might be a factor with local storage too, not sure.

I think the i3 would be much better if they used the same Qualcomm A7 ARM design from the i7/i9. The camera technically isn't needed for functionality, but the CPU upgrade would likely help speed. The i9 and i7 are the same basic design with camera for area room cleaning and advanced positioning (pinpointing). All 3 use floor trackers as the primary sensing device.

With that said, id pony up for the i7 or amazon exclusive I6 when it goes on sale. Better investment unless your place is sub 1k SQFT.
