Comparing the 500 series of robot cleaners

The vacuum cleaner 530 series (starts at $349), 560 series (starts at $399) and 564 series (starts at $429)

Among these three, users have been very pleased most with 530 and 564 giving it a 4.5 over 5 stars rating. They rated 560 at 4 stars which is not bad at all. These last Roomba models cannot navigate from one room to another. But it can detect a dirty area within its limited scope because of its debris sensing capability.

These are push button devices with standard filters. They do not have a full bin alarm and apart from the 564 series which has an AeroVac bin type, the other two only has that standard bin. Their debris pick up feature was rated at Good but 564 series was solely created to clean houses with pets. So if you have a dog or a cat, get the 564. You can even schedule cleaning time for 564 and 560 every day during the week.

530, 560 and 564 has a docking station and goes there when done or if it needs to recharge. They also have a compact wall barrier to block them from going to off-limit areas. 564 is pet-centered; it has an invisible field which prompts the cleaner for pet bowls so that it will not be bumped or touched.

How about 760, 770 and 780 Series?

These three are the high-end robot cleaners which costs $449, $499 and $599 respectively and has all the great features of the 500 series. They all have the pet-cleaning mode, AeroVac 2 bin type and Dual Hepa air filters which captures even the tiniest particles at .3 microns. It has optical sensors which locates dirt even at the hard to reach areas – under the bed and those cut corner areas. It even has a bumper feature so as not to damage household furniture while cleaning.

They all have an extended battery life of 50% as compared to the 500 models and it passes by a certain area many time until it senses total cleanliness. 770 and 780 has a full bin indicator though, so you will know when to throw it out. And only 780 has a touchpad control panel feature.

Each Roomba Robot Cleaner is a round and compact device measuring 13.9 in diameter and height of 3.6 inches at less than 15 lbs. Yes it is very small and light but does all the dirty work, literally. The company iRobot offers a limited warranty on these robot cleaners which is a good thing too plus the cleaners are fit for every type of home flooring.
