iRobot 620 Vs 630: Comparing the 620 and 630

Roomba 620 or 630 – Which is Best for You?

This brief account will compare the iRobot Roomba 620 and the 630, through firstly going over a brief overview of each model (e.g. cleaning technology, filtration systems etc.) — so you can get a clear understanding as to what each robot vacuum can actually do & then from that go on to highlight the variations between the 620 and 630 — whereby you will then be able to easily decide which vacuum is right for you (whilst taking into consideration price etc.).

Roomba 620 Overview

Cleaning Technology & Navigation System

The Roomba 620 is installed with the unique & powerful ‘3 stage cleaning system’ that is utilized alongside the ‘advanced cleaner head’ which both in turn, allows for the 620 to be very effective in removing dirt, debris & pet hair from both soft flooring (e.g. carpets) to hard flooring (e.g. wood, tiles, laminate etc.).

Moreover, it is integrated with two cleaning technologies: the dirt detect (acoustic series I) – which allows it to remove particularly dirty patches by repeatedly passing & cleaning over it as well as the iAdapt responsive cleaning technology – this basically generates a GPS like system, so the 620 can find the most efficient way of cleaning rooms (as well as automatically adjusting its cleaning brush bars depending on the floor-type, in order for it to perform a more optimal clean).

Battery Performance & Integrated Filters

Each vacuum run lasts for roughly 120 minutes, but if it is in the middle of cleaning your room and is about to run out of power — the 620 cleverly takes itself off back to the home docking (charging) station & once is fully charged, will come back to finish off the job in hand. The 620 is installed with the AeroVac filter system to prevent allergens & dust particles from being expelled into the air whilst it vacuums.

Features, Specifications & Accessories

The 620 takes on a circular shape & is colored white — measuring: 13.4 by 3.6 by 13.4 inches and also weighs in at at just over 12 lbs. In terms of accessories, it comes with the docking station & cleaning brush as well as the instruction guide.

Roomba 630 Overview

Cleaning Technology & Navigation System

The 630 is also integrated with the three stage cleaning (which is basically the AeroVac working in tandem with the counter rotating brushes & side brush. Furthermore, it features the same two technologies of the ‘Dirt Detect’ series I (utilizing an acoustic sensor to figure out areas which are dirtier than usual) & iAdapt Responsive technology (that allows the 630 to clean areas that are hard to get to e.g. under tables, sofas — whilst aiding the 630 around obstacles & drop offs etc.).

Battery Performance & Integrated Filters

The battery again lasts for around 2 hours & will return back to the docking station (provided with the purchase) once it has finished cleaning. Moreover, the AeroVac filter system in place only leaves a clean healthy air supply behind as it captures allergens & dust particles.

Features, Specifications & Accessories

The only real difference between the 620 and 630 — is that the 630 comes with a iRobot virtual wall, which is a mechanism you can place to contain the 630 to clean only in a specific area. The design is the same (i.e identical weight & dimensions), apart from the color is a light grey.

The Difference Between the 620 and 630

As said, the only prominent difference between the Roomba 620 & Roomba 630 is that the latter comes with the virtual wall feature — for you to contain the robot vacuum within a specific area, without the need of a physical barrier (as well as the color difference too, the 620 being white & 630 being a light grey). Moreover, the 630 is sometimes fitted with an extra AeroVac filter (depending on the retailer).

Which Robot Vacuum Should You Buy a 620 or 630?

The price difference between them isn’t that significant, the 630 is marginally more expensive by about $20 — which is expected really. But, do you really need the virtual wall? No, but it does prove itself useful a lot of the time, so for an extra $20, I’d say it is worth it.
