Name:
The most popular robot vacuum cleaner in the world, the Roomba 4100/4300 is the entry level version. It features rechargeable batteries dirt detection and infrared drop-off detectors. The drop-off detectors are to keep the robot from falling down the stairs (however, give them a test before you possibly send your robot headlong down the stairs). This model includes one virtual wall which you can use to block the robot from leaving a particular room or area. It requires 2 rechargeable D cell batteries to operate and includes and a side brush for cleaning edges.

The reviews were very positive with people being very happy with the Roomba's performance; especially the freedom from having to vaccum. Many people were impressed with the way it cleaned up cat and dog hairs. Several people with respiratory problems like allergies were extremely happy because the Roomba tirelessly cleans their rooms even when they are too tired to vacuum. There was a complaint or two about getting spare parts when needed and some people wanted it to be better at cleaning tricky areas.
