iRobot Roomba 630 Vs 650: Comparing the Roomba 630 & 650

Roomba 630 or 650 – Which is Best for You?

Here, we will compare two popular iRobot Roomba robot vacuums form the 600 series — the 630 against the 650 — providing a brief overview of both, to give you a clear idea as to what both vacuums can offer you and then go on to highlight the differences (& similarities) between them so you can easily identify which Roomba is best for you (with an appreciation of their respective price tags).

Roomba 630 Overview

Cleaning Technology & Navigation System

The 630 possesses the ‘3 stage cleaning system‘ along with being integrated with iRobot’s ‘advanced cleaning head’ — both combine to effectively remove a significant amount of dirt, peth hair & debris from all floor types. Moreover, it is installed with two intelligent cleaning technologies: i) the iAdapt responsive cleaning technology – which uses advanced software to clean ‘every section of your floor multiple times’ (including under furniture etc.), whilst avoiding potential obstacles (e.g. drop-offs) and ii) ‘Dirt Detect, Series I (acoustic)’ – to perform concentrated cleaning with multiple passes, over the dirtiest areas of your home.

Battery Performance & Integrated Filters

The Roomba 630 can vacuum for around 120 minutes with each run, but if it hasn’t finished (and is about to run out of power), it will simply return to its docking station — to get charged up again — and afterwards & will continue where it left off i.e with the task in hand. Moreover, it is integrated with the standard AeroVac filter to prevent allergens & dust particles from being expelled into the air whilst vacuuming.

Features, Specifications & Accessories

This vacuum also comes with a virtual wall (so you can contain the vacuum within a certain cleaning area, if required). With regards to dimensions, it measures: 13.4 by 3.6 by 13.4 inches (taking on a circular shape, and is colored: light grey ) and weighs in at 11.8 lbs. The accessories included are: one virtual wall, self charging docking station, cleaning brush tool and an extra AeroVac filter — as well as a detailed & simple to follow instruction guide.

Roomba 650 Overview

Cleaning Technology & Navigation System

The 650 is also installed with the advanced cleaning head and 3 stage cleaning system (which basically combines a i. spinning side brush, ii. the AeroVac vacuum and iii. counter rotating brush bars) as well as the Dirt Detect – Series I (acoustic) system which allows for repeated cleaning over particularly dirty areas & the iAdapt Responsive cleaning technology which automatically adjusts the 650’s cleaning brush bar with different floor types & to efficiently navigate and clean your house.

Battery Performance & Integrated Filters

Again, the 650 lasts for approximately 2 hours vacuuming with each run out and will return to the docking station when it is about to run out of charge. Furthermore, it is fitted with the same filtration system of the AeroVac filters capturing allergens & dust, to leave behind just healthy clean air.

Features, Specifications & Accessories

The 650 also comes with a range of additional useful features to consider too, such as: the 7 days a week scheduling system (so you can program the 630 to vacuum whilst you are at work). Like the 630, it comes with a virtual wall and the extra accessories specified (i.e cleaning tool, extra filter, docking station, instruction guide). With regards to design it is colored black, but takes on the exact same dimensions & weight as the 630.

The Difference Between the 630 and 650

As you can see from the above, they are pretty much the exact same model — taking on the same powerful cleaning mechanism (which does result in an amazing pick up of dirt etc.) and navigation system (with the same level cleaning technologies).

The only real difference is the scheduling system you get with the 650, which allows you to set exactly when the 650 gets to work (and that can be when you are out the house, so you never actually ever see or hear the vacuuming get done — but get to come back to nice clean flooring). The only other subtle difference is that they are of course different colors.

Note: you get a one year warranty on both the 630 and 650 & a 6 month warranty on their battery. Also, that when you buy the Roomba 630 it sometimes won’t come with the extra AeroVac filter as specified — so be sure to check this upon purchase (the 650 always comes with the extra filter).

Which Robot Vacuum Should You Buy a 630 or 650?

So it depends on how highly do you value the scheduling feature and whether you are willing to pay roughly an extra $50 or so for it. For me, it is — where not only will the 650 get the tedious chore of cleaning my floors done — I won’t even have to hear it or see it doing it (whilst I’m at work etc.). Pretty awesome really.
