When researching the difference between the Roomba 675 vs i3, I noticed that the i3 model sports two anti-triangle brush rolls, smart navigation, and recharge-and-resume features. On the other hand, the 675 model features one regular and one anti-tangle brush roll, and random navigation but lacks the recharge and resume feature.
I was comparing the difference in the suction force of the Roomba i3 vs 675 and noticed the 675 has a suction of 600 Pa, generating a low suction force. In comparison, the i3 model has a suction force of 2000 Pa, developing a solid force to clean my home.
Furthermore, the dustbin capacity of the iRobot 675 vs i3 i3 is 0.3 liters and 0.6 liters, respectively. But, I noticed the first model is missing the auto-emptying feature, while the second model doesn’t support this feature.
Having compared the area of the iRobot Roomba 675 vs i3, we see that the 675 has a using area of 1200 sq ft. The i3 model has an approximate using area of 1000 sq ft, which might not be ideal for a large apartment. Hence, while the 675 model offers more using area, the i3 model sports a recharge-resume feature that enables the vacuum bot to clean hidden spots in my house.
The noise level of the i3 vs 675 Roomba was a big concern when testing both models, yet I noticed the 675 model has 63 dB while cleaning on the bare floor and 61.5 dB on low-pile carpet. In contrast, the i3 had 63.8 dB while cleaning the bare floor and 59.5 on the low-pile carpet.
Additionally, the iRobot i3 vs 675 carpet cleaning feature in the Roomba 675 performed poorly on my low and high-pile carpets. The 675 models picked up most of the large debris in my apartment yet struggled with fine debris. Moreover, the i3 model also performed poorly on low-pile carpets but performed all right on high-pile carpets. Also, the i3 features a self-adjusting cleaning head height that automatically varies the suction power on carpets.
The iRobot Roomba 675 is better robot vacuum in this comparison. Check iRobot Roomba 675 price
