[buy] Roomba

Roomba "Scheduler". From the iRobot site:

Our top-of-the-line vacuuming robot features a built-in scheduling system that adds ultimate convenience. Program up to seven cleaning times to clean automatically as often as you like--even when you're out. Includes filters, brushes, Cleaning Tool and 2 Scheduling Virtual Walls.

Purchased from: Costco @ $270

- Having a low profile means it will go underneath beds, sofas, and other furniture that we would never had touched.
- Running it during the day means we never hear the vacuum running.
- Watching in action is entertaining for hours.
- We love the first one so much, we now have two!
- Hooray for robots

  1. How well do they work? Are there limits as to what sorts of surface transitions it can overcome? i.e. hardwood -> shag carpet?

  2. We are running them on hardwood, tile, low-pile carpet, and a few rugs. No problemo. However, it can get stuck on shoe laces on stray sneakers :)
