As a comparison, Amazon sells this for over $400 with good reviews, so this seems like a great price!

Check out what other Amazon reviewers have said about this vacuum…

This product is great. I purchased it 2 months ago and it works good for now. Compare with roomba 530, it provides much more features and 3 lightrooms. That’s very important because I don’t need to config anything once I setup the system.

This Roomba replaced a 560 model. This 581 is much better. It cleans one room and then moves on to the next using the lighthouses. It comes with extra brushes and three virtual wall/lighthouses. The sensors must be better as it cleans for about an hour and still finds its home base and docks automatically whereas the 560 would just run out of gas and stop in a room where I would have to search to find it. I love this thing we call Goofy. It goes under all my kitchen cabinets without getting stuck and cleans my multiple rugs over my wood floor.

Let us know if you have a Roomba and what you think!

    Do not waste your money on this item. It will not work within 6 months of buying it. It doesn’t do a good job of cleaning the floor and constantly gets stuck. I wish I could get back the $200+ I spent on it…

    I have one and it is alright, but nothing I would ever buy again- if you have a pet…don’t even think about it doing a good job cleaning up pet hair (I have to use my Dyson for that). We got it as a wedding present and I thought it was a neat concept, but it just doesn’t have enough power to do much…

    I have this model and it is okay, it is a pain in the neck to clean out and it will iss a lot of the floor being cleaned.

  • rose says:

    The price I saw on Amazon is $337.99 with free shipping. You are saving a little bit but not as much.

    I’ve had two Roombas, and unless this model is significantly different from the others, I don’t recommend it. It works great for 6 months or a year, and then craps out.

  • Kristen says:

    I loved my Roomba for the first year or two. Currently it won’t vacuum for more than a minute or two without saying the brushes need to be cleaned. Tried cleaning them several (several!) times to no avail. But we haven’t fully investigated, so maybe it can still be saved :)

  • michellebelles says:

    I guess my quest for a miracle floor cleaner continues!!! I have been thinking about one of these, but after reading reviews, looks like I should hold off.

    Starting Wednesday at Kohls the Roomba 620 is going on sale for $339.99. I have a 30% off and with Kohls cash the 620 is at least $100 cheaper. I have been wanting one of these and have heard the 600 & 700 series are better products, so for that price I think I will give it a try.
