Roomba virtual wall is working with the 500 Series Roomba's. There are no guarantees to work with other series.
The product works as promised, in fact keep Roomba from crossing an invisible "wall." The wall is not perfectly straight over long distances, but is close enough. The virtual wall is less trouble to move furniture or boxes Roomba in one room or a private sitting room to close. Most Roomba with at least 1 virtual wall to come to any interested parties already know how it is usedhow it works (or not), and because they want more.
The reason for the category 3 stars is the high price. The product itself is not very demanding and only a small update on the previous generation virtual walls. Does not provide additional functionality, battery life is only slightly higher, not less.
I simply could not give this product a 5 stars, when half the price ... As such, they are there with a freebie, "and others that I bought. Ideally I would likeobtained tends to take care of one or two and some bends Roomba falters.
But, as with most products, accessories and spare parts is where the real money. The iRobot Roomba is no exception to this rule.
