Add-On's Ultra Soft Bumper for Roomba® or Scooba
iRobot Add-On's Ultra Soft Bumper
If you own a Roomba it's only matter if time before the hard plastic bumber starts to leave scraches all over the places it hits. This has helped to stop that cushing the impacks and preventing the scrapes. This isn't just a piece of velcro, it's much softer and supposed to be antibacterial. You spent $300+ on your Roomba to clean your rugs now spent the $10 to save your furniture.

Roomba Soft Bumper
It does seem to help with the Roomba hitting the furniture, however I do feel it is a little expensive for a "piece of Velcro"...
Also the white color sticks out like a sore thumb, with most of the Roomba's in Grey or Black, why not have it in those colors?

SAVE YOUR FURNITURE AND YOUR NERVES
I have 2 Roombas one which came with one of these bumpers on it already and the noise of the one without banging into everything was to noisy and 50% quieter once this was put on. Save your nerves and your furniture !

This is so necessary it should be included with every machine. You will have black marks on doors, moldings, etc. if you don't get this. Easy to use. My local store doesn't carry this, so I had to mail order it. Worth every penny.

Bumper is just ok
I ordered the bumper for the Roomba 560 because it was hitting the walls & furniture so hard. I am disappointed in the product because it is just a sticky back 1/4" thick add on. A sticky back velcro would work just as well. Product cost of $9.99 plus tax and shipping was $17.00. I don't think it is worth it. Love my Roomba though.

the anti-bang solution
my roomba was also whacking my furniture too hard and leaving little white dust rings everywhere it banged. This has definately helped the banging and the white dust rings have not come back. I own several roombas and have put these on every one.

Made a big difference
Had problems with the Roomba hitting everything too hard. Put on the bumper and that problem has been solved. Now the Rooba slows down like it's supposed to before hitting an object. Does a much better cleaning job too.
