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.
