    Mine retails for $800, got it for $720 at Harvey Norman. DP's family all chipped in fit a bday prezzy so we ended up being only about $300 out of pocket.

    We got the 780 which is the top of the range with the hypoallergenic hepa filters because DP has a dust allergy.

    We've got floorboards and tiles and it does them beautifully. I think it's better for tiles and floorboards than carpet, just because you would want something really powerful for lush carpets and nothing on battery would be that strong. My friend who has carpet and has had a roomba for three years now says that once every 3-4 weeks she still uses her powerful vacuum cleaner to get them properly cleaned. But for me with no carpet there's no need, the roomba does a brilliant job, even goes under furniture to clean.

    It doesn't get stuck under my furniture, just cleans and gets out. I can imagine it would get stuck if there's a bit under the furniture that's lower so it would get stuck under that??? Here it's just going under the tv unit, beds, etc.

    I would love a roomba, but I have a labrador, a golden retriever and a cat and I am worried it wouldn't handle the fur.
    Funnily enough I really want one because the fur drives me mad.

    oh I was deciding between this and cleaner? I can't really afford a cleaner maybe this is better option?

    Roomba is brilliant on pet hair!

    I was skeptical, but I LOVE it! And the best bit is Hubby loved it so much he wants us to buy Scooba

    My friend has one and hates it...she said it isn't very powerful and alarms a lot (so she has to constantly move it etc) and it runs into chair legs. Apparently hers is quite a good brand too...

    I really want one but don't want to spend the money if it's crap. hmmm.

    I know someone who has one and have seen it in action. She doesn't think it was worth it (considering how expensive it was) as it gets stuck in one area and then needs to be re-directed all the time, it doesn't have much suction power and misses a lot of areas, it hits things (annoying).
    I was keen on one until i saw that one in action and decided it was not worth the money. Maybe other ones are better?
