I have 5 dogs and live in the country. They are inside outside dogs. Needless to say I get gritty dirt, dog hair, and dirt on my floors. I use this and it runs for about an hour, and is a real work horse. It is small enough to get under my sofa and recliners, places that don't get done unless I move the furniture. The only thing is the fill basket is small and gets full having to empty it often, but that's ok, I know it's working. It doesn't do well on my throw rugs, but I use my pet hair vacuum on those. Overall I would purchase another one when this one dies. I had it for over 3 years with no problems.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

Gets Lots Of Pet Hair
Pretty Random Cleaning
Small Dust Compartment
Daily House Cleaning
We use the Roomba daily. We try to schedule cleanings for when we are out - it is quite noisy. The dogs leave it alone and it does its business either nudging them out of the way or cleaning around them. <br />The Roomba has a whole variety of cleaning patterns but it is not methodical. Some days some parts of the house get missed while others might be cleaned several times.<br />It is great at picking up dirt and pet hair. It can travel places other vaccuems cannot reach - under your bed for example and will come back with all sorts of unexpected items. We have 2 dogs and 2 kids in a 1200 square foot home. It comes back with a full load most days and has to be emptied and checked for items fouling the brushes daily.<br />We really love the fact that our house is regularly vaccuemed.It does a great job on both carpet and bare floor.
