The iRobot Roomba 650 is a great entrylevel robot vacuum for those seeking an easy-to-use helper without any of the fuzz. It doesn’t come with a remote or any kind of connectivity features, meaning it is only possible to control it on its top panel. It works well on most floor types, and easily picks up most dust and debris on its way, however, it is said to be quite noisy in the process. It is very easy to maintain and keep clean, but you should be aware of the bumpers leaving marks along your baseboards, and perhaps equip it with a velcro strip to protect your baseboards. It goes in random directions and doesn’t map the rooms in a certain pattern, but according to most users it gets the job done anyway. All in all a great robot vacuum for those who wants a simple yet sturdy model made by one of the top robot manufacturers out there.
