A member of iRobot’s latest generation of domestic robots, the Roomba 560 is built with their latest innovations for improved performance, reliability and durability. On-board scheduling allows you to preset up to seven cleaning times per week when it’s most convenient for you.

Roomba 560 will clean four rooms on a single charge, getting into hard to reach areas next to walls and beneath furniture. It can even avoid stairs and ledges without you telling it where they are, and adjusts from hard floors to carpets – it’s such a smart little robot! Virtual walls (2 included) can confine Roomba 560 to a pattern you select, and even select different patterns on different days!

It even automatically returns to its home charging station when it’s done! An improved design over earlier models picks up more hair, dust and debris than ever before, and the improved brushes are easier to remove and clean. Roomba 560 is ready to clean up your house! Welcome to the future!

  • newegg Highly Efficient Cleaning Combining improved counter-rotating brushes and redesigned filters with spot clean and dirty area detection, the iRobot Roomba 560 provides highly efficient cleaning of tiny dirt, dust and hairs whether on the floor, carpet, around furniture or along walls.
  • newegg Intelligence The intelligent Roomba 560 automatically senses and avoids stairs and other drop-offs, self-adjusts for carpets and hard floors and returns to its Home Base to dock and recharge itself between cleaning cycles. Just press the Clean button letting the Roomba does the rest!

1 out of 5 eggsWon't work on dark surfaces

Pros: Color

Cons: Me : My Roomba 560 won't work on my black carpet.
iRobot Rep : Yes - that's a feature called the cliff sensor , when the sensor sees a dark color it believes it's about to go over a cliff and stops - Just in time !
Me : So, you have a 'feature' that tells your unit that my black carpet is a cliff ?
iRobot Rep : Yes.
Me: In my business we call that a bug.

3 out of 5 eggsBeware of Pet Hair, Noise, Maintenance

Pros: Automatic operation, simple to set up and use. There's something to be said for having a machine that does a boring, drudge of a task like vacuuming. The house does stay cleaner.

Cons: Poor design and material choices, high maintenance, noise.
In operation, Roomba is noisy, not only with its cheerful beeps but fan whines, brush noise, etc. Maybe no louder than a traditional vacuum but a traditional vacuum doesn't run for hours at a time. If you are home all day, whether working from home, retired or raising a family, this will eventually get on your nerves.
After living with the Roomba 560 for several years, I finally gave up. The time saved by automatic vacuuming is lost with the amount of time it takes to keep the silly thing clean. In a home with pets, the pet hair destroys the brush mechanism and the smallish air filters clog easily. After every use, I had to swap the filter (I bought a spare so I could wash one while using the other) and spend 15 -20 minutes unwinding pet hair from the brush unit. Even with religious servicing, hairs would find their way into the clockwork gearbox that drives the brushes, wrapping around the turning bits. This, in turn, caused the plastic gears and housing to heat up, melt and necessitate full replacement of the gear/brush unit. The first was replaced under warranty; others carried a high out of pocket cost. A search of the internet found DIY solutions that replaced bushings with sealed bearings to eliminate the problem. IMO, this is a fundamental design flaw that has never been successfully addressed by the manufacturer. Why would they? The replacement parts are a great ongoing revenue stream. In the end, our Roomba went to the closet and ultimately to an electronics recycler.
iRobot was the first to address the issues of logic and operation; their robotics skills are not in question. At the end of the day, though, a robot vacuum must function as a vacuum, not just a robot; in this, Roomba is lacking.

Other Thoughts: I still like the *idea* of a robot vacuum. I may check out Miele, Dyson and even Neato, but I'll pass on iRobot products from here on out.

4 out of 5 eggsHow did I live without this?

Pros: - Vacuums my twin-sized home's first floor without running out of power, and automatically returns to the dock to charge when done.
- Tested the cliff detection on my second floor and my new roomba did not fall down the stairs! :)
- Ability to schedule cleaning by day
- Easy interface
- Great manual and quick start guide
- Parts are very easy to remove and clean

Cons: - Supposed to clean dust bin and brushes after every use, but that's typical of every vacuum if you actually read the manual.
- Does not pick up heavy dirt, just dust and crumbs (but floors still look visibly clean)

Other Thoughts: Don't watch it clean. It might seem like it's going in illogical directions and it will bother you, but trust me - it will get the whole floor. I highly recommend scheduling cleaning for when no one's in the house for an hour or two, depending on the size of the rooms being cleaned. Got it for $189 on sale, WORTH. EVERY. SINGLE. PENNY. Like any vacuum, regular maintenance will keep this bot functioning properly.

5 out of 5 eggsnice

Pros: This thing came in today. I was scared at first on spending money on this thing. But Wow did it deliver. I let it do a full run on my floors, it picked up almost a full tray in one run, which is scary because i keep my house pretty clean and the garbage tray is a decent big size.

Cons: The Roomba came with a broken front wall brush thing. Not sure if it was because it was a refurb and they missed it or what. Its not enough of a problem to take off an egg. Just hope those brushes are cheap lol.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for daily cleaning

Pros: Can easily be programmed to run on a schedule. Cleans better than I expected. Gets under beds and dressers where we normally wouldn't get to everyday! Great for pets and hardwood floors.

Cons: Noisier than expected. Doesn't always find its way home and sometimes gets stuck trying to eat a barbie or and doll with long hair.

Other Thoughts: I schedule it to run when I'm at work so the noise won't bother me. And I guess it is a vacuum so its supposed to be noisy. I've had it for about 2 years now and its still going strong. It doesn't get everywhere inch of floor on a single day but I run it 5 days a week so it does a good job. I have a cat so under beds can get hairy but since I've had the Roomba, no more cat tumbleweeds blowing around. You still need to vacuum steps and high traffic rugs to deep clean, just not as often.

5 out of 5 eggsRoomba 560

Pros: Cleans under the bed... honestly when do most of us do that. It always seems to find something. Automatic schedule does it any time you want. Easier to empty than my upright bag-less vacuum.

Cons: Just like every vacuum I have owned you have to empty it when it gets full. It refuses to do the stairs, I understand I hate doing them too. :^(

Other Thoughts: I gets excited when it finds dirt (has a blue dirt light) then circles around to make sure it's clean. $$$ yes I do wish it was free but I still LOVE it.

3 out of 5 eggsROOMBA

Pros: Easy to use.
Does not cause damage to furniture or walls.
Noise does not freak out pets.

Cons: Not quite autonomous. You have to frequently clean the brushes if you have pets.

Other Thoughts: If you don't have pets, this is a no brainer.
It cleans your house for you, and it does a good job of it too.

4 out of 5 eggsWorth its weight in gold...

Pros: It actually works...really well. I was stunned. Bought it as a novelty item, and ended up getting a real vacuum cleaner that does the job for you.

Totally recommend this to anyone interested.

Cons: -Had to return the first one. Defective.

-If you have multiple rooms, doesnt always find the home base before battery runs out. But it usually does...probably 85% of the time. I bought a second home base, and put it on the opposite side of the house. Dont have to think about it now.

Other Thoughts: Gave it a 4 egg for the defective. Always a hassle to return stuff...though Newegg is the best at it if you do have to.

Wish they would have used a radio signal or something to find its way back to the home base...instead of infrared.
