    Quoted from WackyBrakke:

    Do you have a dog? I don't think any of the robotic vacuums have solved the problem of being able to detect and avoid poop. Watch out for that lovely mess smeared all over the place.

    The sensor already exists, so it's just a matter of time until one of the vacuum robot manufacturers integrates it.

    Seems like the most critical very first thing these things should have been taught to avoid. Id rather have it tumble down the stairs and explode than run over a pile of dog shit and spread it like a nuclear disaster

    In the initial days you had to set the roomba down in the room you wanted to clean and manually start it, so you were generally aware if there was dog poop around. However, once they made models with unattended scheduled cleanings, the problems started in houses with non-house trained or accident-prone dogs. The existing sensor will fix this, it's just a matter of who implements it first.

    I have the next to top of the line roomba and it works great on tile for dog hair.

    It's not perfect, but i generally love my Neato D7. We have a fairly complicated/messy floorplan so not having to put down ir cones or magnetic tape for no-go areas is a must have feature imo.

    My brother's family has one of the $900 roombas and he says they never even use it.

    The 960. It's not the carpet one, but does work pretty good on my area rugs.

    The 960 is 4th from the top now. i7Plus->i7->980->960->E5/6.

    That said, the i7 is nothing to lust after, at least not so far. It's much dumber than iRobot marketing wants you to believe. Just the tiniest of improvements over the 960 (though the i7 is MUCH quieter than both the 960 and the jet-engine 980).

    When I lived in an all hardwood floored house with a dog and a cat, my buddy bought a roomba. I would sweep, and swiffer, and then the roomba would still find a ton of animal hair around.

    My new house is mostly carpet, so I have the Roomba that does both. I frickn love it. I still use the regular vacuum from time to time, but the roomba does great for inbetween cleanings. I usually work around 70 hrs a week, so my weekends are spent being lazy as fk..

    Best Buy has a killer deal on the Botvac D5. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/neato-robotics-botvac-d5-app-controlled-robot-vacuum-black/5559900.p?skuId=5559900

    I bought one yesterday and I got to say, I'm more than impressed.
