The Lowdown on the Roomba 595 vs 650 for Overall Performance.

The Winner: Roomba 650

Roomba 595 Overview

Cleaning Technology & Navigation System

The 595 is effective in the pick up of pet hair, dust and dirt across all floor types — this is because it utilizes the ‘three stage cleaning process‘ which includes the very well-regarded AeroVac technology along with two ‘intelligent’ cleaning software programs, being: i) the dirt detect series (which works through optical sensors to find particularly dirty areas of flooring and in response will give it an intense & thorough clean) and ii) iAdapt responsive technology (that basically maps out an efficient cleaning route, that manages to avoid obstacles & hazards like ‘drop-offs’).

Battery Performance & Integrated Filters

With a single run time it can last for around 90 minutes and will then automatically return itself to the home docking station (which is provided with the 595) to re-charge again. Moreover, it is also fitted with AeroVac filters to prevent fine dust particles from being released into the air whilst its vacuuming.

Features, Specifications & Accessories

As the 595 is essentially the ‘leading’ model in the 500 series it comes with a good few decent ‘added’ features such as: the ‘week’ cleaning schedule program (where you can basically set when the 595 is to clean and when it isn’t — so it works without you needing to be there essentially) and two virtual walls (which allow you to enclose it into a certain area to clean without physical walls needed). It also comes with a range of accessories as well: cleaning tools, spare filters and brush bars etc.

Roomba 650 Overview

Cleaning Technology & Navigation System

The Roomba 650 actually utilizes all the same cleaning aspects as the 595 although has undergone somewhat of a revamp — with improved AeroVac technology to allow for greater suction, better positioning of the brush bars as well as several updates to the cleaning programs. However, the cleaning performance has improved ‘that’ significantly (like you would see in a difference between the Roomba 595 and 770 for instance.

Battery Performance & Integrated Filters

It is capable of lasting a little longer than the 595, up to 120 minutes & will return to the docking station to be recharged if half-way through a job and is about to lose charge — then go on to carry on with the job in hand. Likewise it is also fitted with AeroVac filters to capture allergens and dust particles from entering your household’s air supply.

Features, Specifications & Accessories

Moreover, the 650 also comes with the scheduling program as well as just one virtual wall. In terms of ‘what’s in the box?’ it comes with the actual 650 of course, docking station, an extra filter, virtual wall and instruction manual guide.

The Difference Between the 595 and 650

The only real significant differences is that the 650 is a slightly better cleaning robot in terms of ‘aggregate’ performance, but comes with one less virtual wall device than the 595 does. There are a few minor differences when it comes to design too — both have the same modern, simplistic circular design just the 595 measures: 13.25 by 13.25 by 3.5, weight 13 lbs and comes in a matte glossed black whereas the 650 is slightly bigger (due to enlarged bin capacity) with dimensions: 13.4 by 13.4 by 3.6, weighing a little over 14 lbs and also black.

Which Robotic Vacuum Should You Buy a 595 or 650?

The Roomba 650 is slightly more expensive by around $15 to $25 more so than the 595, but is worth it given the slight edge in cleaning performance offered by the 650 & given that they have largely the same ‘added’ features.
