People have been arguing about the utility of robot vacuums for as long as there have been robot vacuums. Some feel they're just expensive gadgets with extensive limitations, while others see them as important steps toward a real-life Rosey from The Jetsons. While reviewing the Roomba i7+, Engadget's Devindra Hardawar thoughtfully weighed the pros and cons of iRobot's latest model, the i7+. It's quieter and offers a much-requested self-emptying feature, but it's also quite expensive and requires proprietary bags. Despite these trade-offs, it still earned a solid score of 87.

At the moment, there aren't any user reviews on the iRobot Roomba i7+ page so we don't know if people who have been using it regularly are having similar experiences as Devindra. Did you have trouble finding a spot for the 19 x 15-inch base? How well did Alexa work, if you connected it to one of Amazon's speakers? Were you impressed by how quiet the i7+ model is compared to previous models? How long did it take for the robot to map out your home? If you own a Roomba i7+, head over to our product page and leave a review (or, if you're in a rush, maybe just a score). Your responses will appear in an upcoming review roundup column so feel free to include as many details as you like!
