Fantastic!
My house has only hardwood and ceramic tile floors so after reading the reviews here I decided that Mint would be a good thing to have in my house. I just received it today and used it for the first time in my family room. I've included a picture of the room so you could see what the Mint had to get around, etc. From the reviews I knew it was supposed to be good, but I was still very surprised! It cleaned its little heart out! It went around obstacles such as the rug, planters, tables, etc. and then when it knew where they were it went back and cleaned around them again, meticulously! I used the included dry cleaning cloths and they worked great. I also tried a dry swiffer cloth and it was great, too. I didn't like the swiffer wet cloths with it, though. the included microfiber for mopping cloth did just great when wet with water. My floors are shining like new!

Disappointed
Had to return because it was supposed to run for 3 hours after 16 hours of charging, but it only ran for 1 hour. Tried several times with same results.

Great little machine.

I just love my new mint. My floors are always clean now. I love that it works wet or dry. I think the best feature is that it is so quite you cant even hear it running. For the money it is a great value. Everyone that works should own one. Walmart has the best price on this item. I looked all over.

Great product that really works!

I bought this for my tile/travertine floors. I have about 600 sq ft of tile and I haven't been able to keep it clean on a regular basis until I got the Mint Cube. My floors have never been so clean! I use mine everyday either in the kitchen or the foyer and powder room. It will clean my kitchen in about 2 hours. Every time I use it, it picks up dirt. I had no idea the floors were getting so dirty everyday until I started using the Mint Cube. But I did have to buy the cleaning head with the liquid reservoir and I absolutely recommend that. With tax and shipping it was about $35.00 more from iRobot but you don't have to keep wetting the cleaning rag frequently. I just use water and vinegar. It really makes it a breeze. However you do need to either sweep/vacuum your floors first or make sure there isn't anything that can get caught on the pad and scratch your floors. It takes about 10 minutes to sweep my kitchen floor first, but it may not be necessary for you as I have 4 dogs going in and out of the kitchen all day. It comes with a pad just for dusting/picking up lint, etc. I can see where that would be perfect for hardwood/laminate floors. If you're the kind of person that can't stand to see lint/ dust or debris on your floors and are frequently cleaning trying to keep up with it, then this is definitely the product for you. The more frequently you use it the better the results. Just start it and leave it and it will stop when finished. I have not used the dusting function, I only use it as a mopping device and I just love it!
Works equally well with disposable cloths and the included microfiber cloths. The mopping feature exceeds my expectations from a robotic cleaner.

Mint

What a wonderful helper this is to have, it does a wonderful job cleaning and its sooo quiet, I just set it and it does its thing and does it well.

Exceeds Expectations! And Entertains the Cat!

We have stained concrete floors and this product is great for our dusty southwest desert location as evidenced by the dirt it picks up on the cleaning cloths. It doesn't replace the need for a thorough cleaning now and then but it does a great job of cleaning dust and cat fur in between those thorough cleanings and I don't have to do those thorough cleanings as often. It comes with reusable cloths but I like using the Lysol disinfecting "Clean Flip Wet Mopping Cloths." We have radiant heat floors so in the winter the wet cloths dry out faster than unheated floors but that is only a minor negative. It is advertised that it remembers where it has previously cleaned but I am not certain that is entirely true but overall I am very pleased with this product. It is well made and simple to use.

Not For Hard Core Cleaning

Anything that uses swiffer type pads is only for casual cleaning in my book and this thing does casual cleaning ok. it's fun to watch as it navigates the room and it does work pretty hard pushing things around to clean whatever is in its path. if you have a dog or cat they'll either love it or hate it. cats will most likely love it lol. It doesn't scrub the floor at all. it simply pushes the swiffer pads across it. consider it kind of a motorized swiffer sweeper. I do notice a difference in the floor since using it but i'm not sure it's for every one.

works well, sweeps quietly, needs better battery

we recent received this product. it works well in sweeping/mopping. it works quietly, which we liked a lot. the only down side is that the battery does not last long after each charge.

Disappointed

Had to return because it was supposed to run for 3 hours after 16 hours of charging, but it only ran for 1 hour. Tried several times with same results.

not great

Picks up about 80% of dirt and dog hair on the hardwood floor but that means I still need to vacuum or sweep after that so not worth it if I still have to work.

Luvin this Product

Really luv using this product. Glad I choose This Robot as a Birthday gift. So far I have not been disappointed. Cannot stop bragging about my Robot!!!

Most Awesome Invention EVER!

Well, maybe not EVER but OMGosh I am SO in love with this amazing little cleaning robot! I can have wonderfully clean floors (porcelain, natural stone and hardwood) every day and all I have to do is turn on the GPS cube and put a microfiber pad (included) or a Swiffer pad (I double those and think it does a better job than the included pad) on the sweeper and it does the rest and it does it quietly and efficiently. Thank you THANK YOU for such a wonderful, time saving, back saving, more time for my grandchildren, invention :) I've written an extensive review in the Cleaning forum at ths.gardenweb.com. Don't know if WM will let me link to it or not but I'll try http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/load/cleaning/msg021308096935.html?5

Marvelous cleaner!

I have now owned my Mint cleaner (Nicknamed "Martha the Moper"" for a month and am extremely satisfied with the unit! Very simple and effective way to clean/mop my hard surface floors. I have placed the 10 areas of my house on a rotation and I have it clean/mop each room once per week. Very little work involved in keeping my whole house floors clean. I normally take a minute to set up the room and move a few pieces away from the walls to let it clean around the floorboards better. No complaints. It just does the job while I am doing something else FUN! Go to Dollar Tree and buy the 20 pack of dusting cloths for $1.00. Very inexpensive and they do a terrific job of trapping dust, dirt and hair. The Mint leaves almost nothing behind, less than I normally do when I dust myself! After it completes the job it sounds the bell and I go back and put everything back where it belongs. My floors are clean and I don't have an aching back anymore. Buy one.... you won't be disappointed!

Mint Automatic Floor Cleaner is neat

I addition to getting a clean floor, we get hours of entertainment watching this device work. The only drawback is our hardwood floor is so big and ceilings so high we need to run the unit in 2 locations to get everything. It would be good to have a pause feature on the unit to change the cleaning element. Maybe the developers can provide that feature in future models?

Mint Automatic Floor Cleaner

This is probably one of the best products I have bought in a long time. I have two dogs, and one is still a puppy. So, you can imagine the mess that goes with pet ownership. I use my Mint daily, and it has kept my hardwood floors looking great. It captures the dog fur and grunge that they leave behing. I have now happy named my Mint, "Mary" because she has become my Mary Maid. It has made keeping my home clear a lot easier and has gotten rid of the back ache that come with sweeping and mopping. The cleaning cloths was very well. This is a GREAT product!

So glad I bought the Mint

My husband and I debated over getting the Mint for about a month after he saw it as the item of the day on Amazon. My husband and I read a ton of reviews and I have to admit that I was more skeptical than my husband. The price is kind of steep, but after having the Mint at work in our home for a week now, I feel it was worth it! I was afraid the Mint would "push dirt around" as another review stated, but that is simply a false statement. We began running the Mint without cleaning our wood floors. We have a dog that sheds some (not a ton) and live in the country where we have quite a bit of dust. The Mint immediately showed a difference and by the second and third nights I just felt spoiled. It is laughable how great our floors look after running the Mint! It's cornering abilities are amazing and it's maneuverability around places like the dining table is impressive. I'm sold! I can't imagine not having one now! If you're on the fence, take the leap. You will not regret it.

Something Great

This is a great sweeper. No putting anything together, just plug in the charger, turn on the navigator, then sweep, sweep, sweep, or mop, mop, mop, while watching your favorite TV show. Turns itself off when finished. And then, throw the dirt away on the Swiffer sheet. So easy to put the wet or dry sheets on and so easy to take off. Works on my wood floors and bathroom tile. If something happens to the one I have, I will immediately buy one to replace it.

Great Cleaning Addition!

I have had my Mint, nicknamed Manuel, for about three weeks now and he continues to amaze me everyday. I did a lot of research on price and guarantees and found that the price is very uniform all across the board. However, I ended up buying my Mint at BB&B for the simple fact that they have a 20% off coupon they send you if you sign up for their email alerts. Also, we have a BB&B near us and they had it in stock. They also told me at the check-out that if I saved the box and receipt, I could return it at any time if it has any kind of malfunction. All that said, back to the review. This is a fun thing. It uses a GPS system to travel all over your room to sweep or mop the floor. It is extremely quiet and doesn't bother pets or anyone watching tv etc. The only noise you will hear is a gentle bump into furniture on occasion.. The Mint comes with two dry micrfiber cloths and one meant for mopping. I must admit that the first time I let him run around in my family room, I was appalled by the amount of dog hair and dirt he picked up. After that I started using swiffer dry cloths. However, they are not cheap and so now I am looking into trying to find some replacement microfiber cloths that are a little more budget friendly than the $19.99 pack BB&B sells. This little robot may not replace mopping and scrubbing, but it is a great helper and can give you some time off. I am using it on a Pergo floor.

"Automatic" floor cleaner

This product is much too expensive for what it does (or doesn't do). It goes in the same path, back and forth, and does not vacuum. You have instead a cloth (like the Swifter) that needs to be changed every few minutes. To mop with it is ridiculous. The "mop" cloth must be wet before you use it and has to be changed whenever it runs "dry." The Rhumba product is much better as it really does vacuum your floor and it can be remotely controlled.

Seriously, this thing rocks it

If you have hardwood floors I would buy this thing immediately - it's the first "robot" thing I've ever bought - I figured that 1) not being a vacuum, it would probably use components similar to every RC car out there - so it's likely reliable and, 2) as it uses the swiffers you can buy at the store, it'll provide the same level of mopping I do, only do it while I'm doing something more important...like playing video games. I'm not sure how well it work on tiled flooring - but he's intelligent and doesn't get himself stuck more than 1 in 4 cleaning sessions - it's not a big deal when he does, he sings a little "help me" tune every few minutes until you rescue him - but I've only had to do that twice and he's cleaned my entire house - all 3500 sq ft of wood flooring, a good twenty times - Bernard, as I've come to call him, totally rocks it.
