I suffer from allergies and the Roobma870 helps me breathe easier because it picks up the dog fur in places I can't get to every day like under the bed. It also gets dust and dander. Another thing I love is it gets close to walls unlike my expensive upright vacuum. It required emptying frequently the first few times I used it but once it got the rugs cleaned, I use it to maintain the 'fur free' zones and can do a room or more without it requiring to be emptied. The only problem I have is the docking station. I wish it was designed differently because when it is placed on my carpet, it is too light and doesn't sit in the pile so more often than not the Roomba can't dock. The other problem with it, the cord is too short. I don't have a lot of outlets and those I do are not a good 'docking site' because of furniture being in the way yet I can't move the station to a wall because the cord is too short. Other than that, I am so happy I was offered a coupon to buy it at a discount for being a BzzAgent, it is worth every penny!
