I don't understand why iRobot keeps cutting back on Virtual Walls included, first they cut-back on accessories for Scooba 390, then these 600 series also reduced to 1 Virtual Wall. I seriously don't think 1 is enough, so they kinda force people to buy them separately.

Also, last time they suddenly designed Roomba 530 with no handle, a really weird decision.
Without handle, u need to bend down more to grasp with both hands.

This 630 is the frickin most mis-leading. It's a Roomba 530 in black! Look carefully, there are no buttons for Clock & Scheduling, yet it looks 95% like Roomba 560.
They are bringing down the cost to compete with other robovacs?

The price went up north and not down at all. 530 used to be $299 & 560 $349.

Buying roomba from woot.com

Hi, let's say if I buy a roomba from woot.com how do I ship it via vpost. I have registered an account in woot.com but that they do not ship in to Singapore so I just anyhow put my address in USA. But how does the actual process work when they deliver it to Singapore. Anyone got any experience care to share with me ? Thank you

Vpost will have a USA address and assign a mailbox number to you. Just shipped it from woot to your suite number.

Hmm, 4 beeps sounds familiar ... iRobot really need to overhaul Scooba, so established yet so unreliable but do we have an alternative?

Latest LG Roboking ...




More info here: LG


Anyone knows Korean to do the translation? Apart from being able to reach deeper into the corners, i believe it now has scheduling and quiet mode. Its also able to climb an obstacle up to 1.5cm.

The LG Roboking Dual Eye 2.0 Model (VR627, 627 series) is the new vacuum cleaner from Lg, Designed in square shapes with 2 side brushes, one on each side, improves the cleaning effectiveness of the Robot. The Shape and longer side brushes provide better cleaning in corners. The Robot uses ultrasonic and gyro sensors with 2 cameras (pointing up and Down) to map the environment and navigate.
Perhaps they have been reading some of the posts in the Forum and decided to make the best possible robot. The Roboking has scheduling function and you can mute it too.

The Lg Roboking 2.0 would be available in singapore soon.

For videos and specification of a range of Robotic cleaners, do checkout Autovacstore.com
