    I checked out the mop and it looks like it squirts a little water and cleanser then pushes a cloth around the floor. Like a very expensive Swiffer Sweeper.

    i think that's the little one that only does bathrooms and kitchens (max 250ft or something like that). i want the big one that does hardwood and tile and can do up to 1000 sq ft in one job:

    I'm so glad you like, Sput!! It sounds as though it's really working out for you and your house!

    I looked up the cordless Dyson that a lot of your were raving about ... they'e $600 retail, like the full size vacuum? Am I missing something?

    Well before my house would get dog fur tumbleweeds from me never getting the vacuum out. So...my laziness had an expensive solution.

    Wouldn't that be dragging the same dirty cloth all over the place? I guess if you had a super clean floor from this thing going every day or so it would be a nice dust mopper. Hmmm.

    ha! i wish

    which one did you get?
    you won't regret it. even more so if you have any pets.
    i empty the dust compartment every day and the amount of hairs it picks up daily is obscene. i don't understand how my cat can shed that much and not be bald.

    It's time. New dining room rug is coming on Tuesday. The poster with the world's worst and cheapest vacuum knows it's time. I need an upright with tools. I haven't researched anything yet, but I'm hearing about the Shark with the removable tool canister. Seems nice but not necessary. Anyone buy anything new lately? The old one is a Hoover that gets covered in dust when you're finished. I have to wipe it with a damp rag. Doesn't everyone want that feature in their vacuum? It was $60. Deserved what I got.

    Is a roomba worth it with a bunch of kid stuff like table, play kitchen, easel, play mat, etc for it to go around? I've got laminate floors and a lot of dirt/dust grit and hair to pickup daily.

    That is why Roombas have never been appealing to me.

    I like that there is this cool British dude inventing and selling state of the art vacuum stuff, but it's not worth 50% more to me. It actually seems like kind of an outrage to pay that kind of premium because I don't think there is a 50% performance difference.

    I have to admit, I also still do not trust batteries to keep and provide power. In my opinion, cordless vacuums should work like laptops - they have batteries to let you run them cordlessly, but if the battery is at zero, you can plug a cord in to bypass the battery and power the unit to do what you need to do.

    I got a roomba for xmas and I love it. I will say this though - I do not think it is a deep clean. I mean how can that little thing be really sucking deep into anything? but since I have hardwood floors and area rugs, it works for me.

    Also, yeah, you have to pick up. if it senses a toy, it will go around / reposition. It will try several times to get around or under anything like for example, kitchen chairs or chairs at an island or your couch (it goes under my bed because it can). If it can fit in between the legs of a chair, for example, it will try several angles to get in there.

    It's up to you if it's worth it. I like it because it just keeps up with everyday debris that finds it's way into my house. I don't expect it to deep clean. On a good day, I go around with a broom and sweep under my cabinets (it can't get under there) or in edges (I don't think it edge cleans very well) and then order it to go get that shit, lol.

    It takes about 4 hours to do my house because as the battery dies, it takes itself to the base to recharge. But who cares, I'm not doing it.
