Let’s get straight into the meat of the subject…
First, before we go into Roomba analysis, let's get the basics set right, which is a Robotic vacuum cleaner. Normally it is disk-shaped, small but has built-in sensors that help in navigating through the floor while it cleans debris and dust particles.
They are programmed to help you vacuum your rugs and floors while you are on something else. Their prices vary from $150 to $1000. These would come handy for those who are always working round the clock. Now let’s briefly explain what Roomba is;
Now, what is Roomba?
Roomba is a tightly-packed technology that automatically moves and directs itself around your home. Just like a traditional vacuum cleaner, it picks up dirt by rolling brushes. It comes with a side-mounted, swinging brush that absorbs the dirt underneath the equipment, once that happens, two separate spinning brushes push the dirt into the vacuum, which furthers sucks it into the little Roomba bin.
One major difference that sets Roomba apart from other traditional vacuum cleaners is the way it moves around the house with it tire-style rolling wheels with each of the wheel controlled by a distinct electric motor. One amazing feature that happens to the wheel is their opposite movement in different directions, this makes Roomba spin and cleans every space on your floor without leaving any spot untouched.
The power that powers the Roomba vacuum comes from a rechargeable battery pack (NiMH). Although this may have little drawbacks, it was built to minimize the power it draws for the working of the machine before you charge the battery again.
To find out how Roomba vacuums your floor, it uses a set of onboard sensors that help in detecting dirt particles, avoiding objects, and maneuvering obstacles like, threads on rugs and cords that could entangle and cause damage. When it's done with the cleaning it slides back inside its dock and recharges for the next cleaning.
N.B: This works like it has an actual sense and sight due to the way it moves around your home
Another question that comes to one’s mind after having the right information about a particular product is “is it worth buying?”
So personally to answer this question, is to suggest you give it a try because most people are initially skeptical about a new product, but they later become surprised after using it and seeing how effective it can be.
Here's why I say it does a better job than traditional vacuum cleaners; a Roomba vacuum cleaner spends more time cleaning the surface of your floor than you using a traditional vacuum cleaner yourself, so this is the main reason it cleans better than the conventional way you’d usually use a vacuum cleaner. But as you’d expect, it also comes with certain pros and cons (pros are seemingly obvious)
Pros of using a Roomba
• Compared to other electronic vacuum cleaners, Roomba can be easy to use and it has a battery that lasts than most ones out there. All you to do is push the button and voila! It kicks off.
• If you have a home that isn’t cluttered as much, then you can use Roomba to clean your house without much effort from your side. It is far lower than the traditional vacuum which makes it get under your furniture and chairs easily.
• With it being lightweight you can decide to carry it upstairs without having to worry about the weight like a big and gawky Dyson, so it would be a win for older people who find it hard to pick up heavy objects.
N.B: You don’t have to worry about a Roomba falling over if it’s cleaning the upper floors of your house, the sensor allows it to know when there’s a steep and it avoids it.
Cons of using a Roomba
• One of the major setbacks of using a Roomba vacuum cleaner is the time it takes to completely clean a room. Normally they ought to use sensors that measure and mark out your floor but instead they move in an intelligently random way that can cause delayed cleaning time.
• Although, the newer model comes with smart mapping that would identify your floor more precisely for faster cleaning time.
• One other setback of Roomba is that it can't clean deep into your sofa or cleaning places that your furniture is on top of covers.
• One other thing that about the Roomba is its small dirt bin it uses to store the dirt particles.
N.B: Using a Roomba means more cleaning time than you would usually do with a traditional vacuum cleaner

I think the Roomba is a vacuum cleaner that is best for routine cleaning, mostly if your apartment isn't as cluttered as before. Although the conventional cleaning method would still be needed because you may want to clean your sofa, et cetera
