Engadget Review

The Roomba i7+ is iRobot’s best vacuum robot yet -- mostly, because it can finally empty itself after every cleaning job. It’s something the company has always been working towards, but its high price makes a tough sell for most consumers.

The whole point of buying a robot vacuum is to make your life easier. It's easy to be seduced by the promise of automated cleaning, and not realize that it's actually much more work to maintain a robot vacuum than to just push a regular one around. The Roomba i7+ all but eliminates the few remaining robovac pain points, including some that I wasn't aware were aggravating to begin with. It empties its own bin! My God!

With the ability to empty its own dustbin, iRobot's Roomba i7+ is the first robot vacuum we've tested that truly does all of the work for you.
