Who should buy iRobot Roomba 966

  • If you are looking for a simple but efficient and thorough robot vacuum, this might be the one you are looking for. This robot vacuum is fit for large and complicated spaces because it can auto self-recharge and go back to where it left and also can navigate efficiently. It is also for those who have furry pets inside their house because it cleans thoroughly and rarely leaves a spot uncleaned. It also works well with carpets, tiles, and wooden floors.

Who should NOT buy iRobot Roomba 966

  • If you don’t like noise inside your house, this might not be a good option for you because it can get quite loud when cleaning. Users with thick carpets and high doorway thresholds would also encounter problems with this product because it cannot go over and can get stuck with carpets and thresholds that are higher than average.

Verdict

This is our verdict of the iRobot Roomba 966 based on several hours of research of reviews from both experts and users.
Updated 08-02-2021

iRobot Roomba 966 is simple and provides impressive cleaning performance. It maps efficiently wherein it knows which part it has already cleaned and hasn’t cleaned yet which saves time for it to not go over the same clean space repeatedly.

It also detects areas with a high concentration of dirt that needs to be cleaned thoroughly which is helpful to completely clean the area. With that being said, it cannot work as fast as other robot vacuums because it makes sure to slowly but thoroughly clean an area.

However, this product can get a little noisy when cleaning that is why you should set a time of the day where there are no people inside the house.

Additionally, because it doesn’t have carpet detection where it automatically increases its suction, this product may not thoroughly clean a thick carpet.

This product also provides an app that helps you see the map or the area where the vacuum has been cleaned. However, it only provides limited features, unlike other robot vacuums that have a lot of options or features in their app.

Overall, this product is simple to use and great at performing the main purpose of a robot vacuum which is to clean efficiently with minimum supervision.
