We'll let the reviews take it from here...
"It quickly and easily sucks up crumbs, hair, dust, litter, and all those other little items that plague our surfaces and makes our space look soooo much nicer. One day I used it to clean all the baseboards, the stairs, the couch and, well, heck, I got carried away and did most of the floors—and it didn't run out of charge until the bitter end. Sits well in its base, too." —
"So, I don't like to write reviews, but when I do it is for a good reason. This little vacuum is amazing. We use it every day, on carpet, hardwood, and tile. The battery lasts about a week." —
"I've had it for 3 days now and I love it! It easily moves from tile and wood to carpet floors and it's quiet. Each time I clean out its dustbin, I'm pleasantly surprised by how much dog hair and dirt it collects (I have 2 big dogs)." —
"I have three cats that shed terribly. They also love to track litter all over the place. This vacuum makes quick work of all my litter issues. No suction problems at all. It even sucks out the litter deep in the cracks between boards on the floor like it’s nothing. The best part though is the rubber hair nozzle. It gets alllll the hair off of the furniture, the bed, the fabric shower curtain, rugs, clothes, everything!" —
"Let me first start off by saying...I've kissed a lot of vacuum frogs in my life. My relationship with this appliance has been turbulent and unfulfilling in the best of times. And it would inevitably end in some violence—on my part. I'm not proud of this. But, there's no doubt, vacuum cleaners were my most hated appliance. But now, for the first time, I am in love! I adore this vacuum." —
"Overall, I absolutely love my Roomba. It saves me time, ensures that my floors are clean and works exactly as they claim. Having it automatically vacuum daily is perfect for those with pets as it ensures that hair and dander isn't building up within your carpet. I've noticed the upstairs smells much fresher since Bender has been on the job." —
"The big selling point for me is that it converts to a handheld vacuum for stairs. Stairs with carpet are just a hard thing to do with a traditional upright vacuum and any attachment is just an afterthought and doesn't work very well. This one has an attachment that really works well for stairs...The cordless aspect is also a big part of making it easy. I wasn't optimistic, but this vacuum is one of the best I've had." —
"I have to admit, I put off getting a new vacuum for a few weeks when the old one finally died, so my place looked like a fur bomb exploded. About 5 minutes per (large) room with this bad boy and it looked like I had brand new carpet!! I love how easy the canister detaches and the fact that the mechanism for opening/emptying it isn't easily bumped." —
"I bought and returned 3 vacuums before I found this one...it is a dream! It's a little heavy to be lugging up and down the stairs, but the power and suction are well worth it. The cord is long enough that I can vacuum the entire upstairs without moving the plug. This product has made me a Hoover fan for life!" —
"After combing through the products on Amazon I landed on this little gem. It is, far and away, the very best stick vacuum I have ever owned. I am an older woman, so weight and ease of use, effectiveness, are quite important. It is very light, intuitively easy to use (I have had it about 3 weeks, and have yet to read the instruction manual—I know, I should.)" —
