I decided to look a bit more seriously at this product,
but looking around my place I realised, that the only iRobot product that would
be like to function around the mountainous terrain of my open plan, uncarpeted
flat, full of everything from the decrepid shells of long time stripped AS400
servers to the latest in mobile gadgetry, would be one of the military bots the
iRobot corp manufacture, so I was at a loss at to how to justify purchasing one.
turns out I didnt have to, After talking to a friend of mine about the irobot,
they were hooked, and went out and purchased one.
to be honest, I expected they would be gimicky, and have a quickly fading appeal,
but this thing is actually great!
it works really well on the carpet, which after a few runs is looking much better
than it has in a long time,
It becomes clear why they sell so well,
but they would sell better if the sales people who sell them knew anything about them,
unfortunately every one of the sales people I spoke to were close to apathetic,
had absolutely no idea about them at all, and to be honest I know that my friend
would not have purchased one without the background research,
as the salespeople were useless!!
the only slight con is that it is a little noisy, but at the same time, its
nowhere near as noisy as a regular vacumn!
I would highly recommend them!
