Should you buy Roomba 980?

Roomba 980 looks like a gadget from the future – advanced technology and efficient cleaning. However, would you spend $899 to just to schedule a cleaning session and have a history of your cleaning sessions on your smartphone? It would have been alright spending such an amount on a vacuum cleaner if it was a perfect robot. To add to your disappointment, let me tell you that it is not. Why? Because it cannot clean every corner of your house. You will need other cleaning materials or another vacuum cleaner to keep the corners of your house clean.

Roomba 980 can be purchased in the US and Canada now. Japan and other European countries will have to wait till Q4 2015.
