iRobot Roomba 675 Robotic Vacuum Review

A few months ago, I purchased the iRobot Roomba 675 Robotic Vacuum. I purchased this vacuum because, truth be told, I hate to vacuum. It is undoubtedly my least favorite chore. So, if there’s a machine that can do the job for me, then I’m all for it.

The Roomba 675 is the most affordable of the Roomba series. It is sleek, black, and shiny. It just looks good with any decor in the home.

The Good

  • The Roomba 675 can be controlled using the iRobot app or by manually clicking the shiny button on the vacuum. The layout of the iRobot app is white, minimal, and easy to navigate. On the app, you can schedule cleanings for the week and turn on the vacuum. This feature is especially handy if you are away from home.
  • I love that there are only three buttons on the vacuum itself: clean, dock, and spot. By pushing the “clean” button, the vacuum will start a cleaning job, using high tech sensors to detect dirt. By pushing the “dock” button, the vacuum with return to its home, or the charging station. By pushing the “spot” button, you authorize the vacuum to clean a small area of the carpet. What I like most about this button is that the Roomba can give a small area a more thorough cleaning in a small area. This would be good to vacuum under the kitchen table after the kids spilled some cereal.
  • The Roomba 675 can run for at least an hour before it needs to head back home to be charged. During that hour, it does a great job collecting dust and debris. It can also collect debris from the edges and corners in the room.

The Bad

  • The Roomba 675 is loud. It’s hard to hear the TV or music when the vacuum is in the same room cleaning away.
  • This basic vacuum does not have mapping technology like the more advanced (and more expensive) Roomba models.

Basically, the Roomba 675 is a good basic model. It does its job well and is easy to operate.

Do you have a robotic vacuum? Which one do you use? Do you think they are worth the hype?
