Robot vacuums sound great.
They do the vacuuming for you, saving time and hassle. And they’ve come down in price, too–you can get a decent Roomba for a little over $300.
But while plenty of people seem happy with their Roombas, but I decided to return mine.
Vacuuming still isn’t fun, but a solid cordless vacuum is more useful to me than a gimmicky robot.
The Roomba is far from “set and forget”–in fact, it still requires a fair amount of manual work on your part, and you’ll still have to pull our the traditional vacuum for some spots.
To me, this kind of defeats the purpose of a robot vacuum in the first place. Let me explain.
