Overview

Rid your floors of up to 98% of dirt, dust, and pet hair without lifting a finger. The iRobot Roomba 761 goes on cleaning duty at the touch of a button, thoroughly vacuuming even hard-to-reach spots under furniture. Three-stage cleaning and dual High-Efficiency filters ensure even the tiniest bits of debris and allergens are trapped and lifted away.

More Information

Seals away dust, dirt, and allergens

  • Pestered by nose-itching dander occupying your space like an uninvited guest? The Roomba 761 uses 3-stage AeroVac cleaning to pick up 98% of dirt, pet hair, and other debris, pulling them all off the brushes and into the large-chamber bin. This cleaning machine will suck up fluff balls like it's on a mission -- to rid your home of said guest.
  • Dual High-Efficiency filters trap dust, allergens, and tiny particles, sealing them away so you can inhale deep, cleansing breaths.

The dirt extractor that knows its way around your house

  • On-board scheduling lets you program your Roomba to clean when it's most convenient for you -- up to 7 cleaning sessions per week, even when you're not at home. So even if you forget to set your alarm at some ungodly hour to set up for invited guests, your robot vacuum will be up and running. Just make sure your cat doesn't hop on board the cleaning extravaganza and turn your Roomba into its personal hoverboard.
  • Virtual Walls automatically guides Roomba through room-to-room cleaning with ease. When you know you'll be sleeping in that morning, you can set your room as "off limits" and buy yourself a few more minutes with oblivion.

Cleans like you would

  • When it comes to cleaning, Roomba doesn't muck about. iAdapt Responsive Navigation Technology and Dirt Detect hone in on dirt using an acoustic sensor and direct your Roomba to spend more time on a stubborn spot.
  • Nothing gets past this "sharp-eyed" robot. A spinning side brush cleans along wall edges, while counter-rotating brushes act like a dustpan and broom. Even dust can't inch its way to a less visible spot and burrow for ages.
  • If there's a Warrior Dash obstacle course for vacuums, Roomba will give the competition a run for their money. It's equipped with technologies that prevent the Roomba from falling over steep drop-offs like stairs and getting into scrapes with your furniture. The robot vacuum also senses when there's a bed skirt or curtain in the way so it can go under them.
  • A nifty remote control allows you to control Roomba without getting up or bending down.

Good vacuum

It works well like i wanted to

Not very smart

It cleans well where it passes but 90% of the time I arrive home to find it dead and lost somewhere in my tiny one bedroom appartment leaving it's job unfinished and not returning ti the base, so half of the place is left still dirty. I do not recommend.

Excellent vacuum

Received as a gift and left in its box for 2 months because I didn't think it was for me. Finally opened it and tried it out. I was totally amazed by how great it cleaned. It's gets under a low profile bed frame and is excellent at cleaning the dust under there. I also have another black wooden bed where the wood frame sits on the floor and this vacuum does not leave it marked up or scratched. I have had no problems with it knocking things over or getting tangled in cords. I have a glass vase that sits in a corner and roomba will tap it lightly and move on. It's impossible for roomba to move things across the floor because when it bumps something, it turns around and goes a different way. I have never had a problem with it falling down the stairs either. This vacuum does an amazing cleaning job without causing damage. I wish I would have got it long before I did.

Good cleaning but has problem sensing dark furniture

It's a strong machine, good suction and good algorithm to check the space. Unfortunately it seems to be blind to dark furniture so it scratches my brown bed badly. It just run into the bed at full speed several times. I return it because it's dangerous for the furniture, it's a shame...

Has problems detecting dark furniture so it scratch them pretty bad

I turn it on for a few minutes and it started fine, it has a good algorithm to start the cleaning session. The problem is that is strong and has problems detecting some furniture. It started to ram my bed mercilessly and scratch it all over one side, was terrible... I tried with different light but it seems like is not able to see dark things. The wall is white and it slow down a few centimeters before so is not causing damages, my dark bed and dark doors are a different story, it just want to go over like a mad rhino. Not recommended if you have dark furniture or small leg chairs... it's a very aggressive piece of machinery...

Wow

Wow, je ne peux rien dire de plus! J'habite en appartement et j'ai un chat, le Roomba est parfait pour ramasser les grain de litière par terre ainsi que les boules de poils de tous les jours! Il me permet de sauver beaucoup de temps de ménage chaque semaine. Le seul point négatif est qu'il est un peu bruyant lorsqu'il fonctionne et que nous sommes à la maison. Nous le partons donc lorsque nous sommes pas à la maison. Je ne regrette aucunement mon achat

Handy little helper!

We have two indoor bunnies who moult their fur several times a year. Not to mention little hay pieces everywhere. I hate vacuuming so finally bought this. It is a little loud (I thought they were quieter) but it does a good clean! By no means will it replace your upright but it does mean you can bring it out less. Per instructions should remove cords and anything that isn't heavy so it doesn't push it over. It struggles with lightweight or thick rugs that slide around on wood floor. Works great with floor alone and does pretty well on carpet too!

Good Product

A bit noisy, other than that does a pretty clean job. Instead of two virtual walls one virtual wall lighthouse would have been more useful

As expected.

I live in a single floor condo and this thing works as advertised. It collects a lot of dirt/dust even when my floors seem clean. I'm not sure how i'd feel about it in a multi-level house, but for one floor - I'm quite satisfied. Recommended.

My floor has never been cleaner

This is a great tool for those who hate to vacuum and end up with dust bunnies under the bed. The floors are now all dust free and to make space for the Roomba to pass I've been encouraged to de-clutter my 2 bedroom apartment. Which is an extra bonus. A few things to note: There were scratches on the sides of the Roomba on first use. I'm not sure you could return the Roomba if you end up not liking it, although I'm sure you will like it. Lightweight objects will be moved a bit as the Roomba bumps into them. Approximately 4" of clearance is needed or the Roomba will not pass underneath the object.

Happy with the results

The Vacuum is easy to setup and to understand its patterns. It initiates its cycle by scanning the room and then gets busy with it, what surprised me is that although this is not one of the most sophisticated models, it is able to identify when it is done with the room or space it is cleaning on the cycle, and then heads back to "home". The battery lasts almost 2 hours (mind you I have just recently purchased this device), and it comes with 2 virtual walls that can be used separately to keep the rumba in a specific space of the house. I found that dividing my space in chunks of around 600 SQft delivered the best results in terms of performance and how clean the floors get in the end. This way I just move around the virtual walls every day and program my roomba to clean while am at work. I have mainly wood floors, but I also have tile and area rugs as well as some carpeted rooms, and so far, the roomba has no problems reaching each space and cleaning accordingly, even the rooms with carpet. The virtual walls take C size batteries (not included) and the remote 2 AA (also not included). For the price, the features and performance I really recommend. My only complain is that it does not warn you when the dust bin is full and it could be larger, however, the more often you use it, the less dirt it should pick on each cycle.

Not Smart

Knocked over my bass guitar from its stand then proceeded to push it across my new wood floors gouging the floor with the tuning pegs. This was solid in its stand but roomba keeps hammering at it until it gives. Then to keep pushing it around .... not so smart. Also gets tangled in cords so if you have speaker wire .... well expect that ripped out. Oddly, it can tear cords out and knock my bass over but gets stuck under chairs hopelessly. When that happens it just gives up and stays there. Who has a house without cords or obstacles? Seriously. Unless your floor has nothing on it and zero obstacles like pictures from a magazine you might as well vacuum yourself. I tried this is room that are fairly sparse and it still manages to get stuck somewhere.

GREAT

I bought this vacuum because I have 2 big dogs who shed alot, I was constantly wasting time vacuuming up the dog hair, Once I bought his iRobot, the job got a whole lot easier, I run it once a day, it cleans up all the dog hair and set itself back onto the base to recharge for the next day. Great machine.

Good, though somewhat random cleaning

Generally works quite well, though often randomly so, i.e. can't count on it to consistently go to same rooms in my condo with each run My suggestion is to get a higher model with the lighthouses, which as I understand it would aid in room to room cleaning.

Roomba vacuum - great for our circumstances

We are very satisfied with our Roomba vacuum. There is a lot of dust and small wind borne particles that make there way into our condo on a daily basis and the Roomba deals with them effectively and efficiently. With both hardwood and carpeting the Roomba transitions from one surface to the other seamlessly. It is not suitable for large cleaning jobs, but we knew that before we purchased it. The fact that it is programable helps us set it up to clean when we are not at home. All in all a very good product.

Really?

This thing is useless. Vacuums one room, over and over and over and over, without going into another room, then docks. Painful to watch. Just want to watch it venture out into the hallway but it won't, it's just not smart enough. Very disappointed.

Works for pet hair

I have a dog that is a lab-husky mix and boy does this guy shed fur. This model has proven itself in picking up dog fur. Even after we vacuumed with our built-in vacuum, Roomba was still able to pick up a good amount. For us, 80% of what the Roomba picks up is dog fur. She runs 3 times a week on a schedule on my main floor (mix of hardwood and tile), then twice a week, we pick her up and take her to other floors. The top floor is all carpet except for tiled bathrooms. The basement is hardwood and some rubber mats. I'm impressed by how the Roomba handles the variety of floor types. Roomba does a decent job of it all. Most impressive of all is when it heads under a bed or big piece of furniture. It has about 4" of vertical, so as long as your furniture is higher than that, it can clean underneath it (not always as easy with a regular vacuum). The receptacle for dirt is small and you have to clean it out on every run. I thought this would be quiet enough to operate while we were sleeping, but it plays a little tune when it starts up and when it parks itself. You can hear it whirring as it vacuums, and additionally, it bumps into chairs and other furniture, like a slightly drunk house guest trying to make their way in the dark. So no, it can't run at night while the household is sleeping (or trying to). So far, 80% of the time, Roomba does not find it's way back to home base. It might be that in our case there's too much furniture to navigate all the way through. I come home from work and go looking for where Roomba came to rest. Time will tell how robust it is, but one month in, we're satisfied customers.

I love these robots

My wife was the tough initial sell. We had a scooba years ago and that was a useful but buggy product. We now have a 643 and this 761. The 761 cleans much better and we love the clock that allows it to run daily without our help. We have two cats and I can't believe how much cat fur this picks up every day. You have to remember to clean the filter and sometimes the robot can't find the dock if you left a door open but those are easy to overcome. Now we just need a feature where the vacuum turns on the mopping robot when it is done and the world will be a better place.

Great product! I've scheduled it to run every day when I'm at work. Sometimes it would move furniture and get lost but it happens maybe once a week. Other than that it work like magic!

I got it during black friday sale last month

So far it works well. It can climb small step between rooms if floor is not even This remote control return to dock button (black dot key) does not work. I called Roboot support and they said they will ship one for me after length test including reset and also recommend me to return to bestbuy for exchange. I am still testing. Will update more if I could

It's great!

I never thought I'd buy a robot vacuum, but I did. And I'm glad I did. It does an excellent job of keeping the floor clean in between regular vacuums. It's picks up dog hair and dust very well. I goes underneath most of the furniture which is a plus. It did get stuck under one of the tables but we solved that. It was delivered very quickly without any problems considering I ordered it on the Black Friday sale, Overall, we're very happy with it.

Not that great

I bought this on Black Friday sale for [price].I returned it two days after receiving it.My wife thought it didn't do a good job.It cleans well enough but misses a lot of erea.It would clean for about 20 minutes then the battery would need to be charged.Just couldn't justify spending that kind of money on something that didn't do what we wanted it to do.

Great little machine

I bought this about 3 weeks ago when it was on sale. We have a large dog at home that sheds constantly and the Roomba 761 does a great job at picking up most of the hair. I have gone from having to vacuum twice a week to only having to vacuum once a week with the full size Dyson, even then I only need to do the hard to reach spots and the stairs. The only thing I noticed, is that it sometimes has a hard time returning to its 'dock', but that's not a huge deal. The virtual walls do a great job at keeping it out of areas you don't want it to go!

Don't even think about it, just buy it.

Wish I had known about these little guys years ago, we have carpet, tile and laminate floors. It does a wonderful job on all, my wife is a clean freak and even she's impressed. Under the furniture, under the beds, it does it all. The house is mainly laminate and tile, carpets in the bedrooms only. I am so impressed, I just ordered the Braava 380t to do the damp mopping.

Known issue about clock resetting

The robot does a pretty good job cleaning floors, but one upsetting thing is that it keeps resetting the clock sometimes once a day, sometimes several times a week. This makes the scheduling useless. I have done an exchange for a new one, but the clock resetting problem happened again. If you search "761 roomba clock reset", it seems that this is a known software problem. I am contacting Roomba customer service about this problem. If it cannot be fixed maybe by hardware updating, I have to return it.

Works great!

My wife was a skeptic but she's sold now! We've had a 761 model for a few months. 2 kids + 2 dogs. You won't find any debris stuck to your socks at the end of the day once its been working regularly. You can't leave any clothes on the floor or it will get stuck on them (it is a vacuum). I can't leave the bathmat on the floor or roomba will push/drag it around and out to another room. It crawls over a high transition strip between rooms with no problem. All it needs is a robot to empty the dust bin. I'm planning to get a second one for the downstairs.

Love it!

I have two children and used to sweep once or twice a day. I run the Roomba once per day. Now I usually only have to sweep once per week. He works well on our ceramic tile and laminate flooring. He also works well on our carpets and is great for getting under the beds. The only complaint I would have is he is very noisy when he bangs into things. I just installed some bumper pads on him and the bumping off the furniture noise is a lot better.


  • from Bridgewater, NS

not for me

I used it half a dozen times and then returned it. I really wanted to love it but ended up only liking it slightly and for the price it should be loved! It easily gets stuck under furniture i.e. kitchen chairs, dresser & kitchen cupboards so if you leave it unattended, it stops when it gets stuck therefore no further cleaning is done :-( too bad, the concept is great!


  • from Vancouver, BC

Very good value

Have been using it for over a month. This is the hardest working "person" in the family. It bumps into things but softly. None of my furnitures or things got knocked over yet. It doesn't seem to remember very well where it's been, and the bin gets full quickly. That's probably because my house gets too dirty too quickly. Love it and would get another one.

Great hard working robot!

Why did I wait so long? I don't know other than it would have been an expensive mistake if it didn't work as well as it does and it was on sale.. It does a great job in our mini home. A dog and grandkids running in and out generate lots of stuff on the floor. Roomba works once a day and gets it all gathered up in an hour. Every few days I move things around to give Roomba a chance to do a more complete job. The house is cleaner now than it was two weeks ago when Roomba first came. I recommend this robot vacuum to anyone who is too busy to vacuum every day.

A Time Saver!

After a full month's usage programmed for 4 cleanings per week I would conclude that it is a worthwhile investment as it saves you labour and time. Also it will clean the home more often than the lazy human version (me). There are limits as it cannot move objects out of the way and swing a door to get at the gaps so a little human intervention is required occassionally. I use it to vacuum a 2 storey house. 2 uses per week on each floor. If this pet project passes the test, I will most likely buy another iRobot when it goes on sale.

great

got it for my mom, she loves it, so far so good. only concern is energy used while it's sitting and docked, but the internet says one of these will use less energy than a conventional vacuum over the course of the year. still needs a good suction vacuum from time to time

Worth it!

Bought the Roomba 761 when it was on sale for Boxing Day. I'd been considering it for a while, and the sale tipped the scales for me. I was a little skeptical about how good it would be, especially since my fiancé and I have 4 cats, but I'm definitely sold now. The Roomba does a great job of picking up the cat fur, and the bits of litter that get tracked around. It's not the smartest, and occasionally hits things several times before turning around, but it definitely vacuums well. It's also great to be able to do something else while a little robot does the vacuuming around the apartment. Totally worth it!

Excellent

Had a Roomba for 5 or 6 years and just loved it,so when it died I couldn't wait to get another.So far this new one is as good or better than my orginial one.Would recommend them to everyone,but especially people with limited mobility ,asthma or allergies as they really keep down the dust.

I have a smaller low shedding do (at least that is what I thought). I'm amazed at how much dog hair this thing picks up every day. I have only had it a few weeks, but so far I really like it. The virtual walls are also very handy.

Worth every penny!

So happy with it, I bought another for downstairs. It's so nice to coming home from work to a clean floor every single day, and they do an amazing job picking up dog hair too. Very impressed. They are part of the family now.

Pretty good! Does the Job and not too noisy

This little roomba is awesome! I've had it for 2 weeks now and find that it cleans as it should. Having said that it is not perfect, it picks up about 98% but that is pretty good if I don't have to do the work. What I like: I have it on a schedule so it cleans 4 times a week; I love the use the Virtual Wall halo which I use to prevent it from bumping into sensitive objects. It is not that noisy. It uses a random cleaning pattern but it cleans my entire condo. It has a pretty good battery life; it doesn't get tangle up on itself nor on carpets. What I don' like: Can't connect it to wi-fi to set up a schedule. I believe you can set that with the newer more expensive versions and control it through an iphone app. It's ok, I can live with this and set a schedule manually. After all, you only need to set a schedule once and it keeps it forever until you decide to change it!
