There are lots and lots of advantages to this nifty little gadget (in addition to the many wonderful YouTube videos of various animals riding round the house on them...) First of all it takes NEARLY ALL the work out of vacuuming! No more pushing and shoving a heavy vacuum cleaner about, instead you simple turn the thing on and off it goes, under the furniture, into the corners (even thought it is round it can get into edges and corners as it has a little brush that flicks out, and it also seems to be blowing air out to push stuff into its path. It comes with a "Roadblock" gadget, which you can place on the floor and it creates a beam which the Roomba will not cross, so you could leave a door open if you wanted to, and it would stay in the room in which you started it. You can set it to come out at night and do your vacuuming for you, but I haven''t done this yet as there are people that sew in this house and I need to check the floor for pins before doing that. Once I get into the habit of checking the floor I will definitely be using this function though. Overall, I think it is a very well thought out piece of kit - all of the reservations that I had about it (how does a round thing get into the corners and edges? what if I want it to stay in a certain room? etc. ) were answered as soon as I started watching it in action. And if you can get your cat/guinea pig to ride round the house on it to create a YouTube sensation, surely it''s worth a bit more than an ordinary vacuum!
