I Bought the iRobot Roomba 690

I decided I finally needed a robotic vacuum cleaner. As part of a Pre Black Friday sale, I purchased an iRobot Roomba 690 for $275 on Amazon. It's a pretty good price, and if you have a Discover It card, you can get 5% cash back this quarter. There is also the 650 version for about 25 dollars less if you don't care about wifi, they are pretty similar otherwise.

I finally decided to get one because I have a lot of pets and bad allergies and want a way to vacuum every day on schedule. I am hoping this works well for me and will keep my home consistently clean.

I still haven't received it yet, but will update you when it arrives and I have gotten to use it more. Until then this video shows a good overview of it as well as a comparison to an older version. Definitely, worth watching if you are interested in getting a robotic vacuum cleaner.
