iRobot Roomba 665 Overview

iRobot Roomba 665

The Roomba 665 is a decent vacuum cleaning model that is able to cope with its work while its buyer goes about their business. The ability to get under the sofas, jumping over the thresholds, coping with mats, and removing different types of dirt makes it a sought-after product. The following Roomba 665 review will cover all the features of this model to let everybody make a final choice.

This vac is a low-profiled model and it has a size of 17.8 x 17.2 x 4.9 inches. It’s not very short compared to other Roomba models but still can clean under the many types of beds. The iRobot’s weight is 11.5 pounds that makes it rather heavy.

The docking area requires an open space around 3 or 4 feet. Despite the dock’s small actual size (it is about 6 inches), the vacuum needs extra space to navigate to the dock.


The Roomba 665 is based on the iAdapt Navigation tech providing the ability to find its own way around the room. Besides, it features a 3-step cleaning system to cope with different types of surfaces, including long-pile carpets. It only might be stuck if there's a towel on the floor or something like that. It is able to remove almost 100% of the pet’s hair in large amounts.

Unlike some entry-level models that used to move in one direction, then turn and go back, this product is able to go in circular motions around the spot. It has dedicated sensors and can identify spots in a second.

The iRobot Roomba 665 has a Virtual Wall Barrier with two modes. The first mode builds an invisible wall for using it when it’s necessary to prevent the vac from cleaning in specific zones. The second one (Halo Mode) builds the round barrier around the object – a Christmas tree in the center of the room, for example.

The vac is not loud if compared to a usual vacuum cleaner. It produces a whirring sound that is about as loud as a TV at a normal volume. It doesn’t scratch the wood floor. The device also senses stairs not to fall from them. The light changes and blinks before the vacuum stops at the edge of the stairwell.

In this Roomba 665 review, its own external charge port should be mentioned. The docking station plugs into an outlet. The device docks at the station and recharges every time when using it. It runs for half an hour and finds its own way back to the docking station.

If speaking of some shortcomings, this vac lacks smart features, as it’s impossible to hook it up to mobile devices for remote or even voice control through the apps. The unit is able to work only on a dry surface. So, no spilled fluids should be on the floor, as well as such wet messes as rice or pasta.

According to the Roomba 665 manual describes the unit as a rechargeable device with the Li-on type of battery that features a long life (120 minutes) per one cleaning session. However, it’s charging time is a bit long and reaches 3 hours.


The white-colored hoover comes with a traditional circular design with a “Push” button in the center of the unit.

The iRobot Roomba 665 is fitted with a top handle and it has a rubber brush at the bottom for large items like cereal and a second brush for things like sand and dirt. Both brushes clean the room together that provides perfect cleaning of a carpet and wooden floor at the same time.

An auto-adjustable head holds them and makes adjustments depending on the surface – whether the laminated floor or a carpet is cleaned. Note that the brushes need cleaning if the hair is involved. With regard to a bin, it is not huge and it’s necessary to empty it after each use.

The vac also has a clock button to preset the time on the device for scheduling the start of the cleaning process.


Plenty of iRobot Roomba 665 vacuum cleaning robot reviews are about its flawless operating and the ability to clean various surfaces, and I agree with them. So, it’s a modern-looking vacuum cleaning system with good ratings. That is the reason for recommending the product even regardless of the lack of Wi-Fi capability and voice control. It also worth investment since it’s an affordable product with good value for money.
