Fifty bucks off a rigorous Roomba Fifty bucks off a rigorous Roomba
We thoroughly tested the iRobot Roomba 650 last year, and while it wasn't gentle, boy can this thing clean floors. Navigation is everything for a robot vac. Where the device can't go, it can't clean. The 650 will barge into tight spaces, attempt to summit high carpets, and roll right over inch-high obstacles in pursuit of that last gram of dirt.
