Vacuum cleaners are increasingly demanded over the past decades. Those useful machines help boost up the efficiency in house cleaning and women now have more quality time to relax. There are hundreds of vacuum on the market but it can be classified into six main types, namely upright, canister, stick, wet/dry, handheld and robotic vacuum. Among them, the last one is the most advanced and superior to the rest in many aspects. Robot vacuum have been on the market for almost two decades now and the first ever robot vacuum is the Trilobite, from Electrolux. Most sophisticated robot vacuums have ability of changing their directions automatically and it means people can leave it to the robot vacuum, continue doing their own work and get a spotless room when they come back. In this post, I will start compare iRobot’s two successful models, Roomba 650 and 655 according to their similarities and differences.
The most noticeable feature is both models belong to robot type. They are pretty costly, around $300; therefore, most of middle and high-income families can afford them. Moreover, both are similar in canister shape, so they work well on upholsteries like beds, sofas, under furniture and more. And, both are quite lightweight.
Roomba 655 vs 650 have some similar basic features: both also have 3-Stage Cleaning Systems that maximize cleaning performance. The powerful 3-Stage Cleaning System with Edge-Sweeping Brush is designed to loosen, lift and suction dust from all types of floor. Secondly, they can self-recharge and automatically adjust according to floor types for cleaning harder or more gently. Plus, it has the Wall Technology, dirt detection and iAdapt navigation features that make it easier for the smart floor cleaner to detect and clean out the dirt around the house.
Both Roomba 655 and 650 have its own advantages and disadvantages based on some special features. I hope you can find a perfect model for your own family:
Nowadays, people tend to look for a product to look attractive and stunning beside its quality. The more sophisticated it looks, the more expensive it is. Therefore, many manufacturers attract customers’ attention through product appearance. It is vital for a best-selling robotic vacuum to be both functional and attractive. Let look at more details:
– Roomba 650: The appearance of this vacuum is quite attractive. It is a model belonging to iRobot’s black, minimalistic series. Besides, its dimensions are quite appealing too as the size also plays an important role in house cleaning. The Roomba 650 can easily reach spots under bed or furniture. Moreover, it is pretty lightweight, so the machine work smoothly and do not make any loud noise.
– Roomba 655: the vacuum is uniquely designed and looks quite different from other traditional iRobot models. The machine is so sophisticated that you cannot take your eyes off it. iRobot said they want to try something different and actually, they succeed. I believe the robotic vacuum Roomba 655 will catch your eye immediately. The dimension parameters are quite similar to Roomba 650, but with the weight of 7.9 pounds, much lighter than Roomba 650, this vacuum is very lightweight and portable. It is perfect for cleaning hard-to-reach positions such as under furniture, under beds or corners, etc.
The machine’s performance is the most important as it affects our decisions. If it cannot perform at an acceptance level, we should think of alternatives. In short, in spite of stunning looks, I believe the capability of completing its task is still one of the ultimate factors before buying a vacuum.
This is the most concerned feature when it comes to cleaning machine.
Another important feature is the power. Roomba 650 and 655 are different in terms of battery which depends on the technology and usage purpose.
If you buy a Roomba 655, you are likely to have an extra bristle brush, an extra side brush and an extra rubber brush. Meanwhile, the Roomba 650 does not come with any extra brushes.
In general, both Roomba 650 and 655 is wonderful on its own. With quite reasonable prices, families from middles class can effortlessly own one.
