The iRobot Roomba 530 Robotic Vacuum Exceeds Expectations

If you're anything like me, you look at the technological advances around you and think - so what? As kids, we were led to believe that the future would be full of flying cars and teleporters. Robotic maids would cook and clean for us. Movies would be 3D holograms that we could walk around in. When you got hungry, you could take a "Turkey Dinner Pill" that would fill you up and give you all the nutrients you need. Did we get any of that? Don't be too quick to say no. The iRobot Roombaź 530 Vaccuum Cleaner Robot is here to sweep us into the future.

Measuring just 16-3/4 x 21 x 5 inches, this little white workhorse comes complete with its Self-Charging Home Base, 2 Virtual Walls (to restrict off-limit areas,) and an extra filter. If you are prone to allergies, the iRobot Roomba 530's filters are a godsend! Each comes with a rechargeable battery, a power supply (3 hour charge time) and even a brush cleaning tool so that you can pamper your new robotic lifesaver with an occasional cleaning.

If all that isn't enough, iRobot offers accessories (at an additional cost) that can keep yours in tip-top shape for years to come. From filter packs to brush replacements, even extra Home Bases and Virtual Walls, iRobot has all the extras you could ever need.

Why invest in this marvel of forward thinking? For starters, we all know that life seldom affords us the time we need to keep our homes as clean as we would like. Friends drop by for a visit and you end up embarrassed by the layer of pet hair coating your beautiful rug or the cheese puff crumbs under your husband's recliner. With iRobot's vacuuming marvel, the Roomba 530, you'll never have to bear such shame again. It's fine-filtration system traps dust, pollen, and other allergens inside the robot, reducing the chance of allergies affecting you or your guests.

The intuitive cleaning head automatically transitions between wood, tile, linoleum, carpets and rugs. Yes, rugs! The vacuum's improved anti-tangle technology ensures it won't get stuck on cords or the delicate fringe of your antique rug. If it begins to pick up a cord or carpet tassel, it will reverse the direction of its brushes to release the item. Better still, its bag-less dustbin makes the Roomba 530 easy to empty. Gone are the days of messing with nasty vacuum bags.

The iRobot Roomba 530 Vacuum Cleaning Robot is truly a piece of the future we can own in the here and now. With its edge-cleaning abilities, light-touch bumpers and robot intelligence, it will quickly become a welcome addition to your home. You might even name it, I call mine "Belvedere".
