I saw the special on the 4260 at I robot which ends in a hour or two, and I thouhgt this might be the price I have been waiting for. Now I see HSN
has the 53501 on sale. Also, Amazon
has a remanufactured 4199 for 79.99.
I am a single person, single cat (with many fleas) family.
I am hoping that having the Roomba able to clean under the beds will help with the flea problems.
My home is hardwood floors and vinyl tile throughout, with steep stairs. And tile on the second floor. I plan to add area rugs later, but nothing larger than perhaps 5 by 8.
I am on a fixed income, and expect this to be my only Roomba for a LONG while.
I am mostly concerned with cleaning cabability, and manuveuring around, and relability and I don't care a whole lot about programming. I figure that I can alway "babysit" the Roomba if I need to.
Does ordering directly from Irobot have advantages over HSN
? Is HSN
good about returns, customer service, etc.?
