Roomba 960 to find his way in the apartment

Immediately after the start it can be seen that the vacuum cleaner cleans after a system. Like the Roomba 980, he maps the room and creates a map that can also be seen on the phone. In addition, he has the ability to make after recharging at the last cleaned place on. It is easy to operate via mobile app. He also gets on well with Alexa from Amazon. You can program a complete weekly schedule into the robot. A virtual wall can be used to block certain areas that the Roomba 960 is not allowed to drive. This is very handy if, for example, things are still lying around the children. In summary, the vacuum cleaner robot knows as well as the Roomba 980 / 981. In the navigation and operation, we could not find a difference.

No difference ? or maybe yes ? Roomba 960 vs 980

On the one hand, it immediately stands out that the design of the two devices is different. Both devices look very good and have the same quality. Another difference lies in the suction power. Since the Roomba 980 is best. According to the manufacturer, even 5 times. We can not confirm that. The suction power is better with the Roomba 980 but you have to say that the suction power is sufficient for both devices … at least for hard floors. For carpets, the Roomba 980 is clearly superior to the Roomba 960. This recognizes carpets automatically and then increases the suction power. The Roomba 960 can not do that. Otherwise the two devices have identical functions. The volume of the two devices is about 70 dB in the normal range.

Conclusion to the Roomba 9600

The robotic vacuum cleaner is actually suitable for everyone. Almost all functions like the Roomba 980 are available. Only the carpet recognition is missing. This function can be paid but iRobot with about 200 pounds. So if you own only small-pile carpets can save 200 pounds and buy the Roomba 960. For high-pile carpets we would recommend the Roomba 980/981. In summary, one can say that both devices are recommended. 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.
