    There seems to be some confusion as to the actual model this is. Listed as #4130 which is not a scheduler, but rather seems to be a Sage-type (sold on HSN only). Any one know anything for certain?

    This is NOT a scheduler.

    It is a different color sage.

    FYI for an additional ~$30 you can turn any Roomba (even the Red) into a Scheduler by purchasing the Scheduling Remote. I've heard you may also have to flash the firmware (there's a serial port on the side) depending on the version Roomba you have.

    So, how well do these things actually work?

    I have had mine for about a month now. It worked great at first, but now it just spins in circles. I cleaned it regularly according to the manufacturer's specs and still have issues. There are too many sensors on the thing and some of them are hidden in the wheel well. When dust gets on the sensor it thinks there is an obstruction and just keeps on spinning. It is a cool toy, but not a practical vacuum. Maybe if you use it on clean floors you wouldn't have to worry about it being susceptible to dust on the sensors ... of course that would defeat the purpose of the vacuum. Way too much maintenance and attention required in my opinion.

    I agree, I think the vacuums should have a regular self maintenance cycle that they put themselves on, without human interactions. I like the idea of a robot vacuum returning to its recharge station by itsself. Now, they need to take a step forward and creat a station that can "clean" the vacuum.

    Got one about a month ago and it works great, but they do take a little extra effort to service. I just take mine out to the garage and blow it out with the air compressor once a week.

    I had the same problem at 2 months after purchasing # 7. have you tried using compressed air like the ones for PC's and keyboards? I have kept mine in perfect condition for over a year this way. A few seconds blast should be enough to keep the sensors clean.It keeps my two story house very clean and it's the only vacuum. Actually I use a small cannister vac as well for the stairs. I would buy another at this price if mine broke today. Does anyone think $140 is not worth skipping out on vacuuming for an entire year?

    Bought a 4230 non scheduler version from woot ($150) recently. So tempted to get this one. It's cheaper and having google checkout will bring it down to $120 Smile

    Where are the sensors?

    I bought one for my mom. She likes it very much. It did good job. But after 3 times use, it didn't work at all.
