How long do Roomba Robot Vacuums last!?!



I have owned 3 Roombas. A Red, a 2.1 Blue, and a 520 (or maybe it’s a 530). I gave away my 2.1 after 4 years and it was still working! I still have my 10 year old Roomba Red and my 7 year old Roomba 520! Both still work great! All they have needed over the years was brushes, filters, and batteries.

    I do not have a roomba but I have a neato XV pro , I bought it used and its been around since 2012, I had to get it a new battery and still works pretty good. Sometimes it docks sometimes it don't but works pretty good for the most part/

    Glad your Roombas have lasted. I had 3 Roomba Discovery’s (One white, two dark grey) back in the day. The white Roomba died a few months in, IRobot gave me a grey one. The grey one died immediately after the warranty. Then I purchased another, my 3rd unit, which died a month after it’s warranty. I gave up on robotic vacuums for years…until the technology improved. My Dyson 360 Eye is Going into it’s 3rd year and is trouble free.

    My Roomba Discovery lasted for 4 or 5 cleanings… That's with a thorough cleaning of the Roomba between each run… I shit you not…
    Oh, how long did my Scooba 390 last, I hear you ask? 2 cleanings…

    I opened both up, tried to repair them, no luck… (used german and english forums to diagnose faults).

    Long story short: Fuck iRobot… Got a neato D85 (D80) on the way now with 5 years of warranty…

    PS: I'm literally STUNNED to hear how long your Roombas lasted… Also, I have ZERO pets, live seperately from my girlfriend and have hardwood floors everywhere in my flat… So compared to your house, my home should have been paradise for the Roomba/Scooba…

    I need one of those but they are so expensive. 🙁 I can't see paying $500 for a vacuum. plus mine would get clogged with cat hair two seconds after I turn it on lol
