On of the Best Robotic Vacuums: The iRobot Roomba 880

Of all the robotic vacuums available today, the Roomba 880 is one of the most popular, with 50% more power and the inclusion of two Virtual Wall Lighthouses.

The lighthouses keep the Roomba in one room until it is completely cleaned and then allow it into the next.




When compared to the Roomba 860, the 880 is complete with a lot of extras and is very adept at multi-room cleaning. The run time is longer than on other models. In this photo you can see the Virtual Wall Lighthouse and also a glimpse of the side brush that cleans close to walls and corners.

iRobot is the manufacturer and you can buy direct from them. They often have sales and you may need them anyway for after-sales service. There site is extensive and includes a lot of information, but is not that clear on exactly what the features are for each model.

ABT is a electrical appliance store, in Chicago, that ships worldwide and is well worth a consideration.

Amazon is well known to everybody and their return policy, with no questions asked, is appreciated by many.
