Here is another honest comparison and review post within Roomba 800 series, Roomba 805 and Roomba 880

As you may or may not know, I have already posted a similar content about these two models. 

Roomba 880 is the later generation of Roomba 805, so of course, the manufacturer enhanced the errors and equipped Roomba 880 with more advanced technology to make it stand out among the previous models in the family. 

Middle- or high-income families may prefer the pricier machine which, according to their logic, will deliver better performance. 

However, let find out what Roomba 805 provides to worth your investment and what Roomba 880 has to make it a better product.

Similarities Of Roomba 805 And Roomba 880

Both Roomba 805 and 880 are robotic type of vacuum cleaner and produced by a well-known company iRobot. They have the same circular design like any traditional models and the weight is pretty similar too. 

Those two have similar button arrangement on the surface, which is four small button and one greenish clean button in the middle. 

Both are equipped with the iAdapt navigation which helps the vacuum navigate and adapt to different types of floor such as carpet, tiles, hardwood floors and more. 

In addition, AeroForce 3-Stage Cleaning System uses three technologies to deliver the ideal balance of vacuum suction and debris extraction. 

The system allows the vacuum cleaners to remove completely dust, dirt and debris. 

The tangle-free AeroForce Extractors have dual extractors which grab and break down dirt and debris from any floor type with no hair tangles for you. 

The feature is suitable for people who have problems with respiratory tract.

Most of the customers are satisfied with the results and see it as a time saver. With the powerful suction, the Roomba 805 make floors spotless. 

However, some users complain about its performance on hardwood floors or carpet as not expected.

Specific To Roomba 880

Design

Roomba 880 is considered as a masterpiece from iRobot. The machine is available in black color which makes the vacuum elegant and clean.

A few new buttons add more functions and flexibility. It is obviously look more attractive than previous ones..

Cleaning Capabilities

Roomba 880 has pretty impressive cleaning capability. It has 2x battery life and 5x more power than previous Roomba series. 

Actually, most of its owners praised for its ability to handle the job pretty well. 

It can work well on different types of floors such as carpets, rugs, laminate, tile, hardwood floor and so on. 

The process is close to perfect as it sometimes misses 1 or 2 spots. 

This is understandable because Roomba 880 is still a random cleaner so that it can’t determine whether some places need less or more cleaning. 

With HEPA filtration, the vacuum is suitable for allergy sufferers as the HEPA can filter out 99.7% of small particles and also prevents dust from recirculating back to the air. 

In addition, Roomba 880 does a wonderful job cleaning the edges and corners of a room as its side brushes deliver a great result.

Consumer Feedback

The Roomba 880 receives pretty good points on different aspects, namely performance, usability, design and overall features.

Actually, housewives see it as their best friends. Although many people agree that it delivers excellent performance, it does not do a great job on hardwood floors as expected.

Final Thoughts And Recommendation

The Roomba 805 is much less expensive than the 880 but you’ll get what you pay for. 

Speaking of quality, Roomba 880 is obviously better and delivers more impressive performance. 

However, if you have a tight budget, then you should consider the cheaper one, Roomba 805. I believe the product is enough for your house.
