New to the Roomba World - just entered 2 days ago.
am quite pleased with it thus far....
I was quite surprised to find this forum - which has been most helpful already after I found my first issue with the Roomba....
Have an area rug (downstairs rec room) with a black border and y'all know the issue.
Did a search on the forum and found Vic's work-around - which is being employed/used as I type this - excellent solution - thanks kindly for it.
As I was preparing to cut the copy paper I realized that if I drew a grid pattern on the sheet I could get as many as 25 of these "blinders" from the one sheet - time and tree saver !!
After you cut the 1" excess piece from both sides (of a regular 8 1/2 x 11 sheet) you'll be left with 25 rectangles.
Once you cut them in one direction, you can pile them on top of one another and only have to make the minimal amounts of cuts.
Same applies to the angle cuts, but you might want to "half" the pile for easier cutting.
I've stored my "extras" in an envelope for future use....doesn't take that long to apply them. I will remove them when the downstairs is finished to prevent any mishaps when the unit is upstairs again.
I bought the 530 model and am quasi thinking I should have bought a higher model to get the "lighthouses" as opposed to the 2 "walls" that came with it....but I don't really need a scheduler as I'm retired....
Any comments on the pros/cons appreciated.
