From a technical point of view, the devices are identical. They differ only by the color. Basically, all Roomba are equal to 650. Only from a model number of 670 there are slight differences. The latest model is the Roomba 606. However, if you see a Roomba 650 or 615 favorable anywhere you can take these as well. It makes no difference. All models have the same technical equipment. Why the iRobot so complicated … hmm I can not tell you unfortunately.

Review of the iRobot Roomba 605/606

The suction power is very good at the device. Even with a coarser pollution of the vacuum cleaner has no problem. He navigates by chance. In my 60 m2 apartment he was about 40 minutes on the way until he returned to the charging station. The area coverage was very good. Nevertheless, a more systematic navigation would be a lot more effective. The volume is in the middle range. But it is much lower than a conventional vacuum cleaner. As always, quality is top in iRobot. You can not go wrong with handling and maintenance. The Roomba 606 also cuts a fine figure with animal hair and carpets. It is a pity that no HEPA-FILTER is included. This would be important for allergy sufferers.

Better alternatives

An alternative to the device would be the Eufy Robovac 11s. He costs about the same amount. The Robovac but there is a HEPA-FILER. In addition, the navigation would be more systematic than the Roomba 606.

If you prefer a mobile app, you should buy the Roomba 671. This can then times program when the robot should suck. Otherwise, everything is the same.



  • No systematic navigation
  • relative expensive
  • no mobile app
  • no time management
