I plan to buy one of the two, Kinect or Xtion for my Roomba 560. The issue is that I am not able to decide; Kinect probably has a better compatibility with ROS while Xtion has better hardware. Any first hand experience/suggestion will be most welcome.
ASUS Xtion Pro Live works really nice with ROS Electric, but has issues with ROS Fuerte and ROS Groovy.
ASUS Xtion Pro Live is WOW !
