How good is the navigation of the Roomba 605

The Roomba 606 /605 has a good navigation system for this price range. Funny we found that there is somehow no system after what he leaves the room. Nevertheless, it achieves a very good surface coverage without constantly cleaning up the same surface. You do not have to be afraid of collisions. He feels his way slowly to the walls or objects. Damage was never caused in our test. The navigation is most similar to that of the new Deebot N79S, which was presented at the IFA 2018 in September. So no vase broke down with us.

How good is the suction power

The suction power is extremely good for a device in the price range. This robot can compete with the Roomba 691 in this category even with its bigger brother. Thanks to the integrated spot cleaning function, even coarser dirt is no problem. Long cat hair, which is a problem for some midrange vacuum robots, is a breeze for this device.

Despite the high suction power of the vacuum cleaner robot is quite quiet. Many devices with the same performance are significantly louder. The workmanship is very high quality for such a cheap model. But you have to note that when buying no remote control is included. In addition, no mobile app connection are possible. Only three buttons on the Robotvacuum are available.But we found that very pleasant. Press the button and go. It’s easy. The same as with the suction robot iLife A8.

Conclusion to the Roomba 605

If you are looking for a cheap reliable mid-range device without extras, you will be happy with this device. With one battery charge he creates about 65 m2. Due to the high suction power, the robot has earned the good rating. He also scores with a very simple operation. This device is worth the money. A tip from us. Also look at Ebay and compare the price. They also have new devices and you can save a lot of money.

You want an iRobot with mobile app … then have a look at the iRobot Roomba 675.

You are not satisfied with the suction robot presented here … then take a look at our tests on the other vacuum robots. All devices are available under 300 pounds.
