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 ...

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

With regards to this comment, I was once thinking... Instead of trying to find the "be all, end all" pocket-burning single robot, what if I just get tons of cheap dumb-bots, each focusing on one zone.

We've already mentioned many cheap dumb-bots in this forum.
I've also come to terms that there isn't a bot that is suitable for all environments.

Just like Cookware, will u use a super-power pressure cooker to make a fried egg? That's when a tiny 12 cm frying pan comes into play.

If u look at mobile phones, there isn't one that suits everybody, cos something like that will be overkill & exceed average budget.

Scooba 380 or any other Scooba models function the same, except the tiny Scooba 230 which I'll not elaborate here. I've written here about Scooba 230 in the past, if u want more info, I can provide the links.

Whether or not Scooba performs as it should is down to ur luck, the maintenance u do & age of the robot (assuming older means used more).
There are things that user need to observe, they're stated in the manual (but who reads manual right?... I know.)

So pls don't take it that Scooba isn't a good machine, there is, To-Date, no substitute.
