Product Details

iRobot Roomba 530 Series Vacuum Cleaning Robot, Model 53101

Get thorough vacuuming with less effort with the self-charging iRobot Roomba 530 Vacuum Cleaning Robot. The included Compact Home Base® allows for Roomba to dock and recharge when done vacuuming or when the battery is running low.

Features

Special Features

  • Compact Home Base for Roomba to dock and recharge when done vacuuming or the battery is low
  • Compact Virtual Walls create an invisible barrier that blocks Roomba from entering off-limit areas

Thorough Cleaning

  • Roomba uses a three-stage cleaning system to vacuum 98% of dirt, dust and debris from floors
  • Cleaning head suspension system allows Roomba to automatically adjust between carpet, tile, hardwood and linoleum floors
  • Counter-rotating bristle brush and beater brush work together like a dustpan and broom
  • Fine vacuum filter traps dust, pollen and tiny particulates inside bin

Complete Coverage
  • Roomba cleans the whole floor, including the areas you see and those you can't
  • Roomba vacuums under and around furniture and along wall edges
  • Spinning side brush makes Roomba extremely efficient at cleaning edges

iAdapt™ Responsive Cleaning Technology
  • Roomba's advanced system of software and sensors allows it to clean more of your room, more thoroughly
  • With iAdapt Technology, Roomba vacuums every section of your room multiple times
  • Roomba gets into areas you can't easily reach, including under and around furniture
  • Roomba selects from dozens of robotic behaviors more than 60 times per second to optimize coverage
  • Light-Touch Bumper Technology accurately discerns soft barriers from solid barriers, allowing Roomba to go under curtains, comforters, bed skirts and couch skirts
  • Wall-Following Technology ensures the most thorough floor coverage possible
  • Dirt Detect Technology uses an acoustic sensor to help find dirtier areas and spend more time cleaning them
  • Cliff Detection Sensors allow Roomba to avoid stairs and other drop-offs
  • Anti-Tangle Technology keeps Roomba from getting stuck on cords, carpet fringe and tassels, helping Roomba to clean on its own without supervision

Added Convenience

I can't help but using the word amazing in the videos I've attached (I've got to think of a few more synonyms) but I am more than impressed with this little machines cleaning ability and how it navigates under furniture, around legs and transitions seamlessly from carpet to tile. Not only did it clean just about every nook and cranny, but when it was done, it returned itself to the home base charger and plays a few pleasant notes when it was done. How cool is that? You've got to see it to believe it! I already had high expectations but this is exceeding what I thought a little vacuum could do. It picks up dirt, leaves and that fluff from inside pet toys with ease as well as pet hair.

My dog has not yet warmed up to it as he already barks at it and then jumps on the chair. Too funny. Odd thing is he has never been bothered by that manual, antiquated vacuum, but maybe it is because I was pushing it as opposed to an autonomous, advanced Roomba Vacuum.

I've attached a couple of before and after photos and have a few videos I took, but didn't know how to upload them.

I love this product, dont get me wrong and was excited to upgrade to a newer model when my previous Roomba lost its battery (for the second time)after about 2+yrs of use. Unfortunately, even though it was a higher model, it doesn't do nearly as good a job as the prvious. The biggest hassel by far with this unit is that hair and debris get caught on the very ends of the brushes (where they actually rotate) and the robot will stop with an error that says 'please remove and clean Roomba's brushes'. Thats fine, I cleaned my old ones brushes every use as well, but with the new model it doesn't even go through half a cycle before it errors out. I've contact customer support (more than once) and their only suggestion is that I buy another model (oh how convienient!) - the pet series. I don't think I should have to, because the old Roomba did just fine and I never once got this message. Its not like this thing was free or anything! It should still work to a certain standard! - Other than that, I will admit that I love the Roomba and use it regularly (about 2-3 times per week) because it still beats lugging around the other vacuum.

Comments about iRobot Roomba 530 Series Vacuum Cleaning Robot:

Works well in carpeted rooms and gets under furntiture. Owned it for one and a half years. [@] would not replace battery under their [@] 100% parts and labor plan. This cleaner was used less than once a week. Cleaning of rollers can be time consuming. Our model is a 536--maybe the newer models are better. Good for handicapped users but anyone else should consider a lightweight vacuum

If the unit would hold a good charge and the batteries would last longer andddd, it would not lose it's program as mine had done, it is a useful device. Didn't get any help from the service people. They just want to sell you a new one, looks like.

      I spent a lot of money on the Roomba 530. If it's going to lose charge and I have to replace the battery every year, then it's not worth it. The rechargeable battery only means rechargeable for up to 1 year.

      Comments about iRobot Roomba 530 Series Vacuum Cleaning Robot:

      I live in a 650 sq ft apartment and Roomba does a great job cleaning up after my partner and I and our pet rabbit. We use it often so it can generally do one large room and 2 small ones before it needs to recharge. Sometimes I wish it could go a bit longer but still does a great job on one charge. Yes you do need to pick up any loose articles of clothing, cables and cords and we have one chair with a circular wire frame that needs to be taken out of the room or Roomba will get stuck on it. A short amount of prep work in comparison to a regular vacuum! I can prep a room for Roomba in less time than it would take to set up a central vac. Very good suction too for such a small and quiet machine, this thing can pick up large coins like Loonies no problem.

      We are older, and not really amoured with house work. We always thought the house was clean. Now with our pet Roomba the house is super clean. No dust alergies now. When we leave the house, we turn it on, come home later, clean the robot and put it back on the charger. I think I better buy some shares in your company.

      Comments about iRobot Roomba 530 Series Vacuum Cleaning Robot:

      We have hard wood floors and an open floor plan of about 860sq. ft. on our 2nd floor. The roomba pet series was able to clean the entire floor on a single charge and did not get caught in any corner or under any furniture. We have 2 dogs and it picked up the pet dander and hair without a hitch. I do recommend cleaning the brush and bin after each use so that the hairs don't tangle in the brushes. We clean about 2-3 times weekly when we go to bed. It found its dock without any trouble. Don't know how well it performs on carpet, but for hardwood floors, it's ideal!!!! Great product!!!
