So far so good. Threw up an error the first time it returned to the docking station, but has been running like a champ ever since. Less capacity than the other batteries out there but runs for over an hour while before docking while still green. My house is mostly tile and there was a noticeable slow down on the NiCad batteries when it transitioned to the rugs, but not so with this. I was not really expecting much out of it given the price, but it's been doing great so far. Will update in a few months when it's got some more wear and tear, but have ran it about 12 times in the past week ... mostly just because I can as my old battery was to the point where it was only running 20 minutes.
The Good: Your Roomba turns on.
The Bad: You often get charging error codes and overheating alarms. It stops working right in the middle of a few minute run.
The Ugly: The particular battery I received was low quality and faulty. The battery compartment doesn't even close as well as with the original. A BIG tell-tale sign is how light this battery is. The original feels like a brick. This think feels like they just wired a couple of AA's inside.
The Summary: Avoid at all cost.
