Never thought about the volume. No louder than a vacuum cleaner. You can set it down in an unoccupied room and close the door - or leave the house. It will get stuck if it's trapped between furniture - so I use while at home.
I prefer it to a vac because - it's light weight & small, can be stored any where, no bags & broken belts. I don't mind emptying a dust cup, tapping on the filter & a little internal cleaning. I was surprised at the dust that was picked up. It will go under the bed & places hard to reach w a vac & clean up any crumbs/particles on the floors. It will do everything it claims to do, and go along the baseboard.
The first, roomba, I bought at Bed B&B or Linens & things w the 20% off coupon. The I-robot (I have now), I bought on ebay - NEW & from a dealer that sells their products. It's a matter of convenience, for me. I had a Hoover that was as old as Hoover
It did an excellent job, but too heavy for me.
An improvement I would like to see, is a better brush. The bristles are a little flimsy.
You could buy one from a BB&B or Linens & Things & try it out for a few days. Keep the receipt & if you're not pleased, you can return it.
