If you’re looking for a top-quality robot vacuum cleaner, the iRobot range here at Robot Specialist is an excellent place to start. iRobot has over 30 years of experience making robots and digital products that improve people’s lives. They originated in 1990 out of MIT and have since opened up offices and factories all over the world with over 30 million products sold.
Much like the Band-Aid, Esky and Frisbee, iRobot have become so popular that the name ‘Roomba’ is often used to describe robot vacuum cleaners everywhere. We’d call this quite a testament to the quality and longevity of iRobot products.
iRobot have been at the forefront of the robot vacuum industry basically since it began, but they don’t appear to be slowing down. This is evident in the long list of features that are present throughout the iRobot range:

Without a doubt, iRobot Roombas are a worthy investment.
With over 30 years of innovation, iRobot delivers cutting-edge robot vacuums that combine reliability with top-tier technology. The Roombas stand out with features like PerfectEdge™ Technology, Auto Dirt Disposal, and adaptive cleaning patterns. These devices not only save you precious time but also reduce the frequency of manual clean-ups, ensuring a consistently clean living space.
The unparalleled convenience of maintaining a tidy home with minimal effort is precisely what you're paying for. When you factor in the advanced technology, durability, and the hours saved on cleaning, we think the Roomba's value becomes pretty clear. If you're after a top-performing, long-lasting cleaning solution, the iRobot Roomba makes a compelling case.
In 2023, iRobot continues to showcase its prowess in robotic cleaning with some standout models.
At the top of the pile is the s9+. This premium segment stalwart is packed to the brim with groundbreaking tech tailored for meticulous cleaning. It introduces the Auto Dirt Disposal system, ensuring the robot handles cleaning from start to finish without human intervention. The PerfectEdge™ Technology, High-Performance Cleaning system, and Direct Object Cleaning exemplify its advanced capabilities. If you’re looking for the pinnacle of vacuum tech, the s9+ is where to find it.
But understandably, not everyone needs all of these premium features. One of the main feathers in the iRobot cap is the breadth of choice they offer their customers. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, you’re in luck. Enter the Roomba 692, a testament to iRobot's commitment to offering top-tier cleaning solutions at a more affordable price point.
The 692 doesn't compromise on quality; it utilises a patented 3-Stage Cleaning System, efficiently tackling dirt on various floor types. Its Dirt Detect™ Technology ensures that high-traffic areas receive extra attention. Designed to navigate under furniture and equipped with WiFi connectivity, it can be easily scheduled or commanded via the iRobot HOME App, and is even compatible with Alexa and Google Home. Plus, its intelligent system returns it to the Home Base® charging station when needed.
These are two models that bookend what is an otherwise exceptional range. We suggest having a chat with the team at Robot Specialist so that we can help you find the right one for your home.
Yes, Roomba and iRobot are related, but they represent different things. iRobot is the company that manufactures and sells a range of robot home cleaning appliances, including robot vacuums, mops, and pool cleaners. Roomba, on the other hand, is a specific product line of robot vacuums produced by iRobot. It's one of iRobot's most popular and recognised products. Over time, due to its widespread popularity, the term "Roomba" has often been used colloquially to refer to robot vacuums in general, much like how some brands become synonymous with their product category. But, Roomba is just one of iRobot's many offerings.
It's better. While traditional vacuums require manual effort and can miss nooks and crannies, a Roomba offers automated, consistent cleaning, navigating and adapting to room layouts with precision. The advanced sensors and intelligent programming in a Roomba ensure it cleans under furniture and along edges, and even identifies concentrated dirt areas, focusing extra effort there.
Additionally, the convenience of scheduling cleans through an app, even when you're not home, surpasses traditional vacuuming. With features like self-emptying bins in some models and compatibility with smart home systems, Roombas provide an enhanced, hands-free cleaning experience that regular vacuums simply can't match.
iRobot Roombas are designed with durability and longevity in mind. On average, they're meant to last between 4 to 6 years.
This lifespan can vary depending on factors like frequency of use, maintenance, and the specific model in question. Regular upkeep, such as cleaning brushes and replacing filters, can prolong the robot vacuum's life.
Moreover, Robot Specialist offer replaceable parts and servicing, which means instead of replacing the entire unit if something goes awry, you can often just replace the specific part, further extending the Roomba's service life.
Premium pricing is sometimes mentioned in the same sentence as iRobot products, but there are several good reasons for this that justify their pricing.
Firstly, iRobot is a pioneer in the robot vacuum industry, with decades of research, development, and innovation under its belt. This translates to cutting-edge technology, robust build quality, and superior cleaning performance.
Additionally, their vacuums integrate advanced features like detailed mapping, smart home compatibility, and sophisticated sensors. The brand also invests heavily in customer support, ensuring users get the best post-purchase experience.
iRobot has one of the largest ranges of any of the robot vacuum brands. If the top-end models feel too steep, there are some brilliant - and affordable - options available too.
Absolutely, iRobot's Roomba Combo™ j7+ is a game-changer in this arena.
Unlike the mopping-only Braava series, the Roomba Combo j7+ is the first truly retractable 2-in-1 vacuum and mop solution. It's remarkably innovative, boasting the world's first fully hands-free vacuum and mop system. When transitioning between hard floors and carpets, it automatically retracts its mop pad, ensuring carpets remain dry. This unique feature is bolstered by the 4-Stage Cleaning system, which synergises Edge-Sweeping Brush, Dual Multi-Surface Rubber Brushes, Power-Lifting Suction, and its exclusive mopping functionality.
Its intelligence doesn't stop there; with iRobot OS, it recognises and avoids common household obstacles, from clothes to even pet waste. Through seamless integration with voice assistants, users can issue specific cleaning commands, such as targeting areas under tables. Additionally, the Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal ensures the robot empties itself for up to 60 days — now that’s convenience!
