Has anyone here had experience with the Mint? Would you recommend it? :?:

I've just noticed....this might be in the wrong forum? If it is, can someone move it to Evolution? I was looking at the Mint sale on iRobot last night that's why I put question here.

I have the 4200 which is similar in operation to the 5200. The 4200 lacks the fluid dispenser and also takes a long time to charge.

The 4200 does a good job on wood floors in sweeper mode and will do a decent job of cleaning lightly soiled tile in mop mode. I use a combination of water and Bona hard surface cleaner on tile. Since the 4200 doesn't have a dispenser I spray sections of the tile with cleaner. A Mint will not clean grout well or scrub. I use mine weekly on wood and tile and use a roomba and scooba once a month.

The number one Mint feature for me is how quiet it is.

I don't own the Scooba but think the Mint may be helpful on kitchen and Bathroom tile between major scrubs. The special for the Mint on iRobot looks good....I'm adding a Mint to my Robot collection...
I never heard of the cleaner you mentioned but I'll check my local grocery store to see if they have it.
Thanks for responding. :D
