    New Roomba- initial feedback

    I have a prior model Roomba and Scooba, which I love, so I was happy to hear that a new Roomba was in the works. I checked it out this morning.. and it was very frustrating experience.
    1) the price is way too high _ I combine my Roomba with a Dyson, and that covers everything- Roomba does not replace a vacuum.
    2) it does not say if the light sensors will combine with the 4 I have already- an important point for cleaning odd shaped areas, 2 morw would be great - 4 less if they are different and dont work together would be a big loss (reminds me of Sony Video recorders, every darn battery system was different..)
    3) I would love a much better scooba, no other product on the market comes close to the workload savings, except the swiffer wetjet, which is still a pain, and you cant leave it.

    Final frustration this morning was to try and email my questions and comments to the website- the phone number algorithm is funky at best, and it wont take email unless you put a model serial number in, what if its about the new one ????? or you have a question on the 2 models you already have ???

    IRobot- love your technology, have owned the shares on and off since the IPO, but you need to up your game for retail customers.!!!
