Rated 2 out of 5 by from Save your money Rarely makes it back to charge. Usually have to hunt it down and carry it back. Gets stuck in the middle of a room when nothing is there. I have had this and other Roombas for over a year and have found them to be very unreliable. I wish there was one that did what it said it will do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Its destroying my expensive area rugs! This is my third model, I wouldn't live without one! But the 890 model is terrible, it has trouble connecting to the charging base, it runs for a short period of time (even after a good cleaning and with a newer battery) and the worse part is that it is tearing up my berber and wood rugs. My older model never did this on these same area rugs. I literally have to roll them up before running the iRobot, such a hassle!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I would really like to love this little guy However I can not get it connected to my Wi-Fi. It refuses to recognize it. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app several times. So I can not schedule cleanings or remotely start it. I have a difficult time walking and bending so I though this would be a big help. Since I can't walk very well and I have to physically punch the button for it to start, I very seldom use it. I have a previous model and I had no trouble connecting it. Loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase ever! I love my Roomba 890 so much, that I'm getting ready to order another one for our vacation home. I have 3 rescue dogs that shed and this little powerhouse does the job. I have a housekeeper that comes weekly and uses our central vac and she is so impressed with our Roomba

Rated 2 out of 5 by from gets stuck in the same spot every day roomba gets stuck in the same spot every day. You think it would learn to not go there anymore. One day it will clean every room. The next day it will "complete job" with skipping a room. Barrier it comes with has to be turn on and off every day or it will drain AA batteries in 2 days. Gets lost in our house and dies before it can return to home base. Only good for large areas. can not navigate multiple room floor plans even though I bought the model that says it can.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Happy At ALl We've been wanting a robotic vaccum for awhile now. Did a lot of research and finally made the decision to go with the 890 a couple days ago. Pros - It does go over carpet, hardwood floors very nicely and the place it does go over and picks everything up. Cons - Problem is it missing entire areas of a house. This is our 4th day running it and it either sits in the living room the entire time go over places it's already been 4 - 5 plus times and does not go into the laundry room or bedroom and if it does it's only for a short time. It's also gotten stuck multiple times already and has only docked itself once! The other times the app says it's docking but it does not, it just runs till the battery dies then we have to go pick it up and carry it back to it's home.This is not what I expected for a $450 robotic vacuum. We are giving it another day or so and if it doesn't get any better we are going to return it for a different brand.
