Carrying Handle
As you can see from the product images, the 655 includes a recessed carrying handle which is fitted on the top of the robot. Whereas the 595 do not have this carrying handle.

The 655 comes with the XLife Extended Life battery while the 595 uses the yellow advanced power system battery.
So, what’s the major difference between the Xlife and APS battery?
Here’s info from iRobot
“iRobot XLife Extended Life Battery delivers twice as many cleaning cycles as previous Roomba batteries, doubling the time before you may need to replace your Roomba battery.
*Roomba runtime remains the same between recharges. Battery lifetime varies with home environment and usage.”

The 595 is one of the iRobot Roomba models that come with the most accessories.
It includes 2 Virtual Walls with 4 Duracell C batteries, 4 AeroVac filters, 3 Side Brushes, 3 Rubber Brush, 3 Bristle Brush.
While the 655 has only 1 Virtual Wall with 2 Duracell C batteries, 2 AeroVac filters, 2 Side Brushes, 2 Rubber Brush, 2 Bristle Brush.

The faceplate of the 655 is Gray while it’s Black on the 595.

    There are so many different models with different features (not explained) and even within models different features. And price differences not explained. I, therefore, decided NOT to buy a robot vacuum at this time.
