I also agree with "Katherine of Amazon" that there's way to much "viral marketing" for this product.
My Roomba 530 Pet Series (I think that's right. It's a white one) definitely picks up less big stuff with these filters than it does with its iRobot AeroVac bin. I say this b/c it took a few runs to get some crushed leaves off the floor by the front door. That would make sense if Roomba has to force air through a more restrictive filter, which should be what this is. I hope that it's picking up more tiny particles and keeping them out of the air as the trade off. It hasn't been enough to noticeably help my wife's allergies though and I've been running the Roomba 2-3 times a day for about a month now. (there's also 2 HEPA filters going, an air ionizer, and the house HVAC unit his its fan pulling air through its filter 24/7 too)
My attitude is that this is worth a shot. So far it hasn't yielded noticeable results, but I'm going to keep running the Roomba with these filters hoping that it's making a little difference.
A note on cleaning: this takes a tiny bit more effort to clean than the AeroVac bin. There are 2 compartments, one main one for the big debris and a sealed one you have to swing open and clean the "HEPA pre filter". And the bristle brush seems to need cleaning a bit more often with this filter.
Normally I empty the bin and clean the filter about every 2-3 runs. That's about as often as I was doing it with the AeroVac bin, maybe a little more frequently, especially when I first made the switch.
Two of the three reviews here--all "five star" gushing and glowing-- as of my writing of this review were written on the same date. None of the reviewers participating thus far has reviewed anything other than aftermarket Roomba products.
Forgive me if I look askance at these reviews. I'd like to hear from customers who shop for a broader variety of products rather than two or three from the same company before I'll take on faith that this product, which is almost twice as expensive as the regular Roomba filters (nineteen dollars as opposed to ten), is worth the money.
Filter fits the Roomba just fine and works but I don't think I will buy replacements.
The original filters seemed to have pick up more after each session and was easy to clean.
The HEPA filters are thick and I think that makes it a little weaker on the intake.
But it does what it was said to do.
I will order other products from this company.
My rating was decided for the performance of the product only.
