Product Details

iRobot Roomba 870 Vacuum Cleaning Robot - ROOMBA870

The Roomba 870 will clean your floors like no vacuum has ever cleaned before. Featuring the revolutionary AeroForce™ Performance Cleaning System, Roomba 870 removes up to 50% more dirt, dust, hair and debris from all floor types. The tangle-free AeroForce Extractors are virtually maintenance-free, making it even easier for Roomba to tackle daily dirt build-up.

Features:

  • The AeroForce Performance Cleaning System
    Ideal for homes with pets and allergy sufferers, Roomba 870 traps dirt, particulates and allergens, drawing them into the sealed, HEPA-filtered bin. Here's how AeroForce works:
    • Tangle-Free AeroForce Extractors: Dual extractors grab and break down dirt and debris from any floor type. No brushes mean no tangles for you.
    • Airflow Accelerator: The accelerator creates a sealed channel that concentrates the airflow, drawing in more debris.
    • High-Efficiency Vacuum: A compact and efficient high-powered motor provides a 5X improvement in air power than previous Roomba generations.
  • Effortless Cleaning
    Dirt happens every day. Keeping up with it just got easier.
    • Docks And Recharges: Roomba returns to its Home Base® to dock and recharge.
    • Cleans On Schedule: Roomba can be preset to vacuum up to seven times per week.
    • iRobot XLife™ Battery: iRobot XLife Battery delivers twice as many cleaning cycles as previous Roomba batteries, doubling the time before you may need to replace your Roomba battery.
    • Avoids Off-Limit Areas: A Virtual Wall® keeps Roomba in the rooms you want to vacuum and out of the ones you don't.
    • Lets You Know When Bin Is Full: Indicator lets you know when bin needs to be emptied.
  • iAdapt® Responsive Navigation Technology
    In coverage tests, Roomba out-cleans the competition thanks to iAdapt Technology, iRobot's advanced system of software and sensors. iAdapt enables Roomba to find its way around any shape or size of home, covering every area of floor multiple times.
    • Finds Dirt And Debris: With Dirt Detect Series 2, Roomba uses optical and acoustic sensors to find dirt and perform concentrated cleaning.
    • Cleans Like You Would: The Persistent Pass Cleaning Method employs a back-and-forth cleaning pattern to apply elbow grease in areas where it senses excessive dirt.
    • Vacuums Along Wall Edges: Roomba uses Wall-Following Technology to clean right up to wall edges and kickboards.
    • Won't Get Tangled Up: Anti-Tangle Technology keeps Roomba from getting stuck on cords, carpet fringe and tassels.
    • Won't Fall Down Stairs: Cliff-detection sensors allow Roomba to avoid stairs and other drop-offs.
    • Won't Damage Furniture: The molded, soft-touch bumper cushions the contact between Roomba and furniture, walls and other objects.
    • Pushes Past Soft Obstacles: Light-Touch Bumper Technology accurately discerns soft barriers from solid barriers, allowing Roomba to go under curtains, bed skirts and couch skirts.

I have worn out one of almost every series of Roombas, back to ones that wouldn't do rug fringes (I turned them under). I have a big house, several animals and a messy child. My 700 series was nice, and better than all the previous series but it started dying... random loud clicking noises, running loud, and not picking up very well. I took it apart and found nothing I could easily fix.

So I splurged and got one of the new 870s; the fact that it was a major redesign caught my interest. I don't schedule my Roomba at all; I'm an emergency physician and my schedule is random. When I'm at home I put Roomba down in a room and run it until the battery is dead, cleaning it out on a regular basis. So I don't need programming.

I just used the new 870 last night for the first time. I put it in a dirty room, cleaned it out when it was full, and put it back down. I thought there was a problem because a few minutes later I noticed that the "full" light was on, and I'd had problems with the 700 series and previous not turning off their "full" lights until you turn it off and on again.

Nope, I checked it and it was full already. The new brush design is much more effective than that used in the past few series' brush decks. The filter's a bit hard to get out and back in, but other than that, extremely pleased. It is quieter than the 700 series (when my 700 series was new), and it picks up twice as much stuff in half as much time. Rugs are much cleaner; dog hair that was stuck to the rug and the 700 series wouldn't pick up (even when new) got picked up right away.

This is not only the best Roomba by far, but a big jump from the 700 series. Get one!

    Comments about iRobot Roomba 870 Vacuum Cleaning Robot - ROOMBA870:

    I am having fun with my little robot :) He is great for daily 'maintenance' type cleaning. I use him on the first floor of our home. The robot does not cover the entire area. He works for about an hour and then heads for home. He does have a very very hard time finding his dock. Sometimes he is driving around and looking for his dock for 15 minutes until I carry him to the dock area. So, the robot is not good if you need to clean up quickly and thoroughly. He takes a long time and misses spots big time. But he is great for just keeping things tidy, going under furniture, and working so that I don't have too :) I love the brush roller system. It is very easy to clean, and remove hair. Hair doesn't get tangled on the rollers!!! Which is great because I have super long hair. I also love that I have not had any problems with mysterious error messages. The robot works every time. I owned another brand of robot vacuum a few years ago and regularly got error messages that prevented the vacuum from operating! So I am pleased with the reliability of my new robot. Overall, this is more like a fun toy that happens to vacuum too!

          Comments about iRobot Roomba 870 Vacuum Cleaning Robot - ROOMBA870:

          While my house keeps cleaned I have more free time with my two cats and husband after the workday. It cleans perfectly and remove all pet hair from home. It has 3 cons in my opinion:
          1) The robot scratches itself under some kind of furnitures
          2) Sometimes, When there is lint fabric or human hair on the floor it holds on the brush and causes an error on the robot
          3) It doensn't balance well the time between the rooms. I think it requires many pieces of virtual lighthouse and its so expensive in my opinion. I live in a big apartament and if I don't supervise the robot and use the virtual wall to guide de robot it takes much time on the living room and doesn't have enought battery to clean other rooms.

          Although this cons, i'm so proud of my iRobot because there is many pros.

            I am in love with this Robot!! I have been wanting one for years and honestly I can't believe it took me so long to get one. I am extremely happy!!! First I bought the 770, within one week, I found myself cleaning the brushes too often which for me, defeats the purpose of having a robot. Therefore, after doing extensive research, I traded it for the 870. I am so glad I did!! I have two cats and one Golden Retriever. My dog, sheds a lot so having Roomba has been the best thing that has happened to me. I am extremely busy and I got tired of coming home and vacuuming all the time. I even have a real maid that comes to the house twice a month and still I ''had'' tumble weeds of hair floating around. Needless to say, my maid will no longer have to come anymore Roomba has done it and all I have to do is minor touch ups around the house now. Woot Woot!!! Now I can't wait to come home after work. I look forward to having a clean house after a hard day at work. Thank you so much!!!!

              Love this little new rug and room cleaner. Quiet compared to regular vacumn and runs by itself when set with time and day. Can't believe how good it cleans. We have a very thick rug that's hard to vacumn, but this little vacumn does a great job of cleaning...better than I would do! Love using it daily in all our rooms. Best gift I ever bought myself!!!
