iRobot Roomba e6 (6134) Wi-Fi Connected Robot Vacuum - Wi-Fi Connected, Works with Alexa, Ideal for Pet Hair, Carpets, Hard, Self-Charging Robotic Vacuum
My new best friend
Roomba is a human and fur baby households best friend. I can set it to clean my home while go out on a walk, run errands, play with my children. I absolutely love that it has freed up my time while it does the vacuuming for me. Its also quieter than a regular upright vacuum. I wish I would have purchased it sooner. It makes my life so much better.
- For carpet
- Battery life
Change your language settings for a laugh!
I set my language to Russian and it gives me a laugh whenever it gets stuck. It will say something in a soft Russian voice. Also, the rubber brushes on this demolish pet hair. Be ready to empty it often. I named mine Sir EatsAlot.
Love this product
I absolutely love my roomba. I can set a schedule on what time I want it to clean and it automatically cleans everyday at that time! So neat! It does the best job too. When its full it will notify you on the roomba and on the app. It comes with an extra filter, its not very hard to clean!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This vacuum is amazing! We have gone through several other vacuums and this IRobot Roombs e5 makes my floors the cleanest they have ever been. It is super easy to set up and use and will pick up dirt on your floor that you didn't even know was hiding there. I have used it so far on carpet and tile and it leaves both amazingly clean. I would highly recommend this vacuum to anyone looking for an easy way to keep their floors clean. After you set it up this vacuum does all the work for you. It is very quiet and I have had no problems with it missing areas or getting clogged. I was given this product to review but would buy one for my busy household. Although I was familiar with Irobot I was not aware this particular model existed before I was given one to review. After using this vacuum for a week my floors are cleaner than they have been in years!
Great Roomba for pet owners!
I got off to a slow start using this Roomba because I have an iPhone. Those won't work for this. Once I was able to get it set up I was hooked! I have 2 cats that shed and it cleaned up the pet hair like a champ. I dump the little dirt holder daily which has been enough. This does 2 rooms with one charge between. I would recommend this to anyone with pets!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Does a surprisingly fantastic job in my space. Requires a little oversight to make sure it can't get caught on a cable or shoelace. Handles animal fur well for the most part. Made an awful noise win the brush arm got wound up in various hair and I had to clean that but otherwise ditching the dyson!
Item Listed is NOT what I got
Item listed is an e6 but when you start it, the item clearly says its an e5 series. granted box says e6 but when you plug in and do all the things it says, it is not an e6 series. I know they are similar but label it what it truly is. They do have differences and are 2 totally different series. I will live with what I have but just sad that I researched all kinds of reviews and thought I was really getting an e6 series irobot. I would still recommend as my kids have told me to get one and with pets and my health this will help on the days I'm juat too ill to vacuum after my animals. Again, just sad that it's not what it says it is. Im uploading picture from the app to prove what it said when I set it up (if it loads...not showing up but not sure if that means anything...lol)
Different e6 models
It works perfectly! The app needs to be updated. When I set up the app it said the Roomba was e5 series. This is NOT the e6 with the wall barrier. It hasn't been a problem with our stairs. It does not fall down the stairs. The only thing it has done is it has knocked around our cats food and water
I think it does a good job picking up the dirt but I do not like how random it moves. I wish it had a pattern so that it would get all the area in the house. It seems like it goes to one area a lot more than others. I would suggest getting one that you can either program an area or that it does a pattern.
High hopes thinking this would be a time saver. Unfortunately, this is more work than just vacuuming myself. This specific roomba runs in a chaotic and in predictable fashion. It will miss areas while circling back to go over where it has already been. Instead of running in straight lines, it turns at random and continues until it hits something. I liked that you could schedule it to run, and that it was supposed to go back to it's charging station by itself. It never found its way back to the charging station on its own. I'll be returning this item- you're better off spending this money on a decent dyson vacuum and doing it yourself.
I would recommend this vacuum.
My main reason for return was with my phone which has given me problems, I was unable to get the app to work. Also, our house is all carpet and hard to find a suitable flat spot. So my dislikes aren't legit. I think I would have liked it if I could have programed it. It really cleaned well on my kitchen carpet and it does get the dust and dander as if claims. With programming, it is a neat device and goes over throw rugs easily. If someone has hardwood floors, and some carpet and programs it, it's going to make them a great cleaning tool. I also thought it would be great under beds but didn't keep it to use it for anything except the kitchen as I really wanted to program it and it wasn't the fault of the robot but my phone which is apparently a lemon. Hated to return it but maybe at a later date?
- For the house
- As a gift
- Ease of use
It was very difficult to do the set up due to the fact that I have 5G internet service. I had to forget the 5G connection and use the 2.5G. And then had to re-hook up the 5G. I have not really used the app because we have been home for the holidays. Otherwise the vacuum is great, cleans up sand well.
- For the house
Best purchase ever! My flior hasn't been this clean since I first moved into my house. My husband got it for me as an Xmas gift because I usually have to clean our floors 5 times a day do to our Great Pyrenees shedding non stop. As long as you keep up on the maintenance. ie..cleaning out the bin. clearing the port, removing any pet/human hair from under the wheels, it'll keep working just fine.
Roomba has become my best friend.
owning two long haired black cats, the hair was never ending. As I am older, it was difficult for me to keep up with the hair. Sweeping was killing my back.. now every morning, the roomba runs around doing my sweeping for me. I love this machine,,,, I am sorry I did not get one years ago.. now if only they can make them less expensive...
Very convenient but could use improvements
Cleans hardwood and tile floors great but you may have trouble if you have an area rug. Our roomba has trouble getting onto the area rug in our family room so we still need to vacuum there regularly. And the odd chance it does get on the rug, it gets stuck and only does a small fraction of the rug. It does take a long time to clean and part of the issue is the random paths it takes. Will sometimes stay on one side of the room for multiple passes and then will only do one pass on the other side of the room. It just goes diagonally in various directions. I thought it would operate in more of a straight line as much as possible and be a little more efficient. For the price, expected more.
It does a good job, but keep an eye on it.
I am supremely happy that I have a Roomba to do the vacuuming for me, but I can't leave it alone. The device keeps getting stuck-under sofas, on thick pile bath mats, etc. There aren't enough virtual barriers to block off furniture in the most used room in the house. It does a good enough job to relieve me of the task of vacuuming.
YES! I would buy this product again! This is my second one
This is my second Roomba. I purchased one abut 20 years ago and it lasted for I know at least 7-8 years. When it quit working I just didn't buy another one until now. Boy have they changed. Although my first one was really good this one is even better by far! I love it and wouldn't take anything for it! I run it everyday. It makes your carpets look so fluffy and clean. If you haven't purchased one you need to. Its a bit loud on the hardwood but when it gets on the carpet you can't even hear it.
Wished it was more efficient but it does a good job. Can't figure where it gets its dirt unless it is shaving the carpet. Bin full every time. Don't know if I would recommend to a friend unless they have money to toss. I'll keep trying to use until it breaks.
Very good vacuum with one exception
Water cleaning feature is a definite plus. This part is great. Cleans well but in a law office, you get paper shreds on the floor all the time. This may not be a problem at home. This unit clogs easily on shredded paper, but will pick it up after multiple passes.Probably because this unit has less suction than more expensive models, but Roomba says it does not. iRobot support is some of the best in the business; they are willing to easily replace any unit with the slightest fault. They are very friendly and highly knowledgeable. I don't think their engineers anticpated shredded paper though.
Wonderful to have! Not as smart as I thought...
It's addicting to watch, I can waste hours just watching it - I try to figure out why it sometimes goes over the same section over and over and yet seems to drive right past places it's missed. It doesn't seem as smart as I was thinking, maybe because I have a lower model. It doesn't seem to find its base (I keep the base in a back room) it will get lost and run out of power. Then I actually have to get off the couch and take it back! HAHA! However, it eventually cleans everything so very well, I'm very happy with it and can't wait for the company to continue making improvements to the new models! Thx!!
