iRobot Roomba 865 , my husband gave me. After seeing this disc, I thought, "What's he can naplesoil?". However, very much mistaken. So, everything in order:
In the box besides the robot goes to a docking station, where it arrives after each cleaning. Additional replacement filters or beacons was not in the box. The robot has two cushion, which collect debris from carpets and floors. Side, right triple brush for suctioning dust and debris from the corners. And, of course, trash compartment, which is slightly less than half of the area of the robot. Plug the docking station is narrow, will fit into any outlet.
All parts (rollers, small angled brush and trash chutes) should be removed and washed. From personal experience, disassemble the robot needs time in two and a half weeks on mounts cushions, and also around the axis a tiny brush, wound wool and animal hair.
The first time tested the robot after the General wet cleaning. The robot starts with a large round button Clean. I, as I said, didn't believe in his ability, but judging by the fact that he had collected on the net, as I thought the floor, I realized that we live in a barn! The trash chutes have been filled, the robot, not even returning to the station and not finishing, signalled filled the tank.
To empty the compartment enough to remove it by lightly pressing on the cover. The dust is collected in a tight ball and does not scatter when emptying into the bin. You also need to remove the rectangular filter, which is in the same compartment, and shake off the dust and with it.
Manual says to use the robot as often as possible, which we did. By the way, we have two dogs that all day, shake your hair, run and raise dust. Every day the dust was going all less. Tested during the week, for a week I never cleaned the floor with a damp cloth. To my surprise on the furniture dust was significantly less. And when the sun disappeared visible dust particles that fly in the air when moving in the house.
The robot is equipped with large wheels that pripodnimayut it to a height of 2 cm, which helps him to move the thresholds and to call on the carpet. Thresholds we have, but this barrier, like a clothes dryer with a base diameter of 2,5-3 centimeters he moves, or rather glides back and does not get stuck. If the robot gets stuck in the wires, for example, he first tries to get out himself, then in case of failure, beeps "Error, move the Rumba in another place." If the signal was not heard, he goes to sleep. And you will find it where it is stuck.
Convenient programming start cleaning on arrival you will find a clean apartment and the Rumba on the dock. Also there is a function "SPOT", Rumba will be held at the same place many times.
In our apartment only 7 rooms equipped with doors. After reading the reviews of beacons to mark the doors and borders of the rooms, I thought that the Rumba can't handle all apartments and some rooms will be removed worse. However, the robot rolled around the apartment for about two hours and thought went into all the rooms. But for convenience, I usually close one door, thus dividing the apartment into two zones, and start the Rumba in two zones. You can be sure that you will not miss any of the premises.
If Rumba in the area, fenced off from the docking station, after cleaning it the button is flashing DOCK, and it will try to return to base. Just open the door, and he will return to the base. If he cleans in the room where the base is located, problems with returning to base does not occur.
Also tested the height sensor. Perfectly clean textile sofa from fur and debris without falling! Also very pleased with this fact.
So, my opinion is the ideal helper in the house, especially when house Pets and small children, when the time to clean there. Really cleans well! Very satisfied.
P. S. Since the advent of the Rumba has never pulled an ordinary vacuum cleaner. Simply go after him with a damp cloth and cleaning done.
