Some comments from the customers:

I tried to run Buddy at night with nightlights throughout the house – he was making shorter runs, ranging from 200 to 600 sq/ft per cycle. I found that Buddy prefers brighter light to do a better job cleaning – he now cleans 1300 to 1500 sq/ft during each cycle. He works every other day (M-F) with weekends off. We love him – he does the work so we don’t have to.”

Auto cleans every afternoon. I would like to see a bigger waste bin.”

Perfect vacuum for any house! Can’t imagine life without it now! Wish the app would send you notifications and allow multiple users. If you have hard word floors, this is a must! I’ve never seen my floors so clean!”

For my personal comments, there are so many new technologies on Roomba 980, the durable capacity need to prove in the future. The Roomba 980 capacity of clean almost is same as Roomba 880, only more powerful on the Carpet Boost function, but noisier. If you like to interfere and control the robot vacuum everywhere everytime, please select iRobot Roomba 980, otherwise iRobot Roomba 880 is better for good price.
