Last year my Hoover vacuum cleaner broke. It didn't stop working, but
the height adjustment snapped. I've been able to use it anyway, but
it's less than optimal. Being lazy, I've not made the effort to
replace or repair it.
Being the gadget freak I can be at times, I'm intrigued by the idea
of a robotic floor cleaner. The older generation was too big and
noisy, but with the advent of Roomba, I've begun to
wonder if they're worth it.
Anyone played with one of these?
I was hoping that Fry's would have a demo model on the floor the
other day, but I had no such luck. I'd really like to see one in
action to help me decide if it'd be up to the task of keeping the new carpet looking new (and freaking out the cats).
Upon further looking, it seems that Best Buy might be my Best Bet.
Or maybe Target, which is closer anyway. There's a list of
places that sell the Roomba. Of course, Amazon
carries it too.
