    We have an LG robot. Definitely works but you still need to use your regular vacuum for thorough cleaning occasionally and also to get into corners of rooms.
    I really like it for a quick effortless spruce up and to get the cat hair.
    It's not perfect though! We returned the first one because the sensors stopped working and it started bashing into walls and it stopped charging. LG customer service were great but their approved service centre were a-holes and difficult to deal with!

    I have a roomba. It's wonderful with kids and a dog. I turn it on every night to do the lounge while everyone sleeps.
    Agree with above though it doesn't do everything. Corners and a deep clean still get done once a week. It really only gets the surface stuff.

    I have a roomba too. I LOVE it. At first I didn't think it did that great a job but now I divide the house up and confine it to specific areas so its a lot more thorough. I've only got my dyson out twice since I got our roomba for Mother's Day. I highly recommend getting one!

    I've got an LG roboking and I love it. I used to be vacuuming constantly but now I just use the roboking every day or so in the high mess areas. I still do a real vacuum weekly but the robot has made a big difference.

    Our model is very good at zone cleaning without get stuck in or under things but I occasionally need to rescue him. The dust container needs emptying more often being that they are smaller than a standard vac.

    I have to wait til my 17 month old is asleep though as he chases it!

    I have a roomba. I divide it into rooms too by shutting doors. I think it works a treat. Still need to mop once a week to a fortnight. Every now and then it gets stuck but has helped me tonnes since getting it
