Our iLife vacuum review will show you another vacuum that will keep your home dust free. With an accurate sensor and 3-stage cleaning system, it’s hard to make a pass. If you can’t afford to spring on the Roomba, take a look at our O-Cedar-O-Duster robotic floor cleaner review instead.

Why We Like It – iRobot Roomba 675 Review

The iRobot Roomba 675 provides a solid path towards a budget-friendly robot vacuum without sacrificing performance that matters and still having a long-lasting battery.

  • Very effective cleaning system
  • Excellent budget option
  • Can clean automatically
  • Have to empty dustbin often


The iRobot Roomba 675 puts out the kind cleaning performance that keeps floors clean, sucking up dirt, hair, and debris. Its battery life is a solid 90 minutes, almost matching the Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 11S in run time. First, its dirt detect sensors find dust, large debris, and hair. With its dual multi-surface side brushes, it pushes the dirt towards its powerful suction and the dirt is gone. Since the brushes are designed at a 27 degree angle, it can easily nab the dirt in corners.

The base model does not include a virtual wall barrier, meaning you can’t create a virtual wall that it knows not to pass. However, there’s two roomba models that include it for a heftier price. If you don’t want the roomba wandering off, we would recommend a model with a virtual wall barrier. Still, the base model still has really advanced navigation compared to other robot vacuums.


The iRobot Roomba 675 doesn’t go out of its way to alter what you picture a roomba to look like—even looking similar to the ILIFE V3s Pro. Its two-tone surface is appealing enough, sporting a shiny finish with matte black trimming. There’s buttons on the top of the roomba to adjust different settings or to start the vacuum up by pressing the clean button.

Additionally, the Wi-Fi connected robot vacuum can adjust its height based on the surface it’s dealing with. It works on carpets, not just hardwood floors and other types of hard floors, like the Ecovacs DEEBOT N79S. It also comes with a home base for home base charging.


There are some roomba robots that need your touch to activate, but the iRobot Roomba 675 doesn’t need your permission. Given how well it performs on hardwood and carpets, which is a huge plus, this robotica vacuum cleaner has excellent value. This is especially true given its accurate sensors and power suction.

To compound its value, the iRobot 675 doesn’t need your permission to work. Through WiFi connectivity, you can use the iRobot HOME app to schedule cleaning sessions as well as use Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa (you need an Echo Dot) to enable voice control and issue voice commands.

iRobot Roomba 675 Review Wrap Up

The iRobot Roomba 675 is a good little workhorse. Its 3-stage cleaning system easily picks up dirt, debris, and hair on hard flooring and carpets, including the corners. And you can easily forget it’s even there by scheduling automatic cleaning sessions. Sure, you’ll need to clean the dustbin every so often, but it’s still an excellent budget robotic vacuum.
