Yesterday's Hyena writes about the robotic vacuum cleaner. I have looked into this (having the flat cleaned when you are away looks tempting :-), but I think I need more references.
- I did not find whether it is available in the Czech republic (well, there is www.irobot.cz, but it seems outdated and there are even no newer models).
- Or, can it be bought somewhere with the Czech wall plug inlet and the European warranty?
- I have read the robot is quite noisy. Is it true?
So, my dear lazyweb - do you have Roomba or some other vacuum cleaning robot? Where did you buy it? And would you recommend it?

I have seen two of those pretty machines in colleague's house in US. As far as I can remember: they're useful on "plain" floors (carpet is in whole room or nowhere). Will try to find out more info..

You can currenty buy Electrolux Trilobyte in CZ, but I have no experience with it.

Well, I have it :-). My experience is that if you want to perform once-in-a-while cleaning up, this is not the best tool to use. However, for regular use, it's working pretty well. I purchased via irobot.cz without problems. With it, I usually have to use "ordinary" vacuum cleaner once a month or two. PS: Yenya bloguje, husty ;-)).

What frequency do you mean by a "regular use"? Re: PS - welcome in the real world, I am blogging for ~2.5 years now.

Depends primarily on the kind of floor. I strongly prefer wooden floor to carpets which accumulates dust quite quicky, so Roomba is needed approx. once or twice a week. I have never used it extensively on carpets though.
