Does is just randomly go around the room or does it have some kind of sensor on it that actually seeks out the dirt and stuff?
We got the Dirt Dog whoch is $120. iRobot Corporation: Home Page It is for "shop sweeping" technically I guess but he works great on carpet. We have fuzzy carpet...not shag...like normal pile...I don't know much about carpet

OH Man... That little bugger would just be the cat's meow!!! I hate vacuuming and we need to do it all the time. *sigh* Dog hair!!! :roll: I vacuum about every other day if I wait longer than that I have lab hair in everything.

$120 bucks huh??? That's not too bad. That would help to keep the house tidy too.....So can you just close a door to the room you don't want vacuumed??? Like the kid's rooms?? I'd still have to do some picking up for army guys and necklaces & ribbons & such. Never mind, I just answered my own question....DUH... Blonde moment!!! It's not like the robot is going to bust down the door...

I just read the site and a lot of reviews for the dirt dog. I'm seriously considering picking one up. Would you mind letting me know in a few weeks how you think it's doing?? Sounds like we have similar carpets, and I have a lot of linoleum ( Big Kitchen, laundry room, bathrooms) that it sounds wonderful for.

Oh, that's way better than what I was thinking they'd be. Yes, I think I must have one of these!

I need one so we can let the maid go when obama raises my taxes. :(

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.
