Q: Robot Vaccum Cleaner?

I am considering purchasing a robot vacuum cleaner. You know the one that you just turn it on and it vacuums for you?  My question is do any of you own or know someone who owns one? Is it worth the money? Or would I still have to run the regular vacuum after?   So far my only concern would be a robot revolution while I sleep, so your feedback would be awesome and greatly appreciated.

My dad has been using the Roomba I bought him about 3 years ago. He has hardwood floors and tile in the kitchen. He NEVER even sweeps anymore and his floors are spotless.

I could not speak on how they do on carpets tho.

i have a roomba..it's awesome..i have hardwood and carpet floors. it does wonders on my rug too. it's not the strongest, and sometimes big chunks on the floor will stay there, but for the most part, i think it's definitely worth the investment. i've only felt like i needed a hardcore vacuum maybe once while having the roomba..but that was for a really nasty mess that i didn't even want to put the roomba to use for it.

I have 4-530 and a few 300 iRobots, they are great on hard floors.
But the Neato XV-12 is on sale at target for $330.....that would be my choice.

I have a Roomba and a scooba(the floor washing model) I just love them. The get to places I normally would not go like under the beds and behind the couches,under coffee table. Their customer service is good too. Now they don't do a deep vaccum , but if you are vaccuming more often I dont think it really matters. I got them both when they first came out(first gen) and each generation is better than the last. The battries tend to go after a year or 2 but they can be replaced. If you have a dog or cat I would suggest the model designed for dogs and cats. They also have a heavey duty model on their web site.

I vote for Roomba. My GF and I have four between us and we love them. They work well and they double as entertainment for the cats.

I have nothing to say about this topic.
I just have to admit to chucking at "robot revolution"
