The More Powerful Robot Vacuum Cleaner: The iRobot Roomba 860

This robot vacuum cleaner is a step up in power, when compared to the Roomba 650 and does include a Dual Mode Virtual Wall. The AeroForce® power system uses tangle free extractors, rather than brushes, which should result in less hair untangling time!

The photo shows Roomba 860 about to move under a chair. The height is 3.6"( 91.4mm), so it should be able to move under most beds and furniture.

It scores 4.3 out of 5 stars with 193 reviews.

Note that the features marked with an (X) are items that are extra to the features of the Roomba 650.

Now the Roomba 860 does offer better cleaning abilities and the Dual Mode Virtual Wall does have the "Halo" feature which can be useful for keeping Roomba away from sensitive areas.

The "Dirt Detect Series 2" is a more efficient system to clean those areas that have more than normal dirty spots.

Of course the 860 is more expensive (by about $180.00) but it is a more efficient robot vacuum cleaner.
