Samsung Robot Vacuum from Best Buy #masteryourhome
Samsung has released a new line of products at Best Buy! We were sent the Samsung Robot Vacuum to review for all of you.
Who has time to vacuum your house anymore right?! We all want to enjoy our summer time with our kids and not have to worry about cleaning the floors. Now, you do not have to worry about your floors being vacuumed anymore. The work can be done for you when you want it done. With 7 cleaning modes the Samsung robot lets you choose the best way to clean in different situations. It has 4 styles of cleaning, including auto, spot, max and manual modes, scheduling modes and a dust sensor mode.
What’s Included in the Box
POWERbot Robotic Vacuum Cleaner
Two AAA batteries
Power cord with adapter
How It Worked for Us
First off I want to say I saw this highly tech vacuum and thought to myself, “Wow, I am never going to figure this thing out!” The manuals looked thick and I was worried I had gotten myself in over my head. I was wrong. The manuals are thick because of all the languages included and the directions are super easy to follow with large images.
The first thing you do it manually set it up on the docking station. The first charging takes about 160 minutes to fully charge. In the future when the battery gets low it automatically moves to the docking station to recharge itself, before resuming cleaning.
Next, you will pick which cleaning mode you would like to try first. There are four setting for cleaning. Auto clean, spot clean, max clean, and manual clean. It seems to have a wider brush than most vacuums, so it can clean larger areas with less movement. At any time you the robot is cleaning you can press the point and clean button on the remote that will shine a red dot on the floor.
This allows you to guide the robot to where you want to clean. Then when you release the vacuum goes back to cleaning where it left off. Using its 10 sensors and on-board digital camera it creates a complete map of your house and calculates the most efficient cleaning path. The Visionary Mapping plus System finds and leads it around the optimal path for the fast-track cleaning.
I found it has great suction. There are two settings for the suction. You can put it on silent mode, which makes it a little quieter. The extreme suction is CycloneForce’s strong centrifugal force separates dirt and debris into an outer chamber. So it maintains suction power by keeping the filter clean with less clogging.
The Samsung Robot Vacuum has a great comprehensive scan upgraded, high-performance FullView Sensor comprehensively locates even very narrow or small obstacles across a wide area. Fewer blind spots, it can navigate safely around an entire room. Even sensed my curtains hanging, going right up to them without sucking them in. The wheels move smoothly over most obstacles, so it will keep working while you’re not there.
My Personal Opinion
I absolutely love this vacuum! I was cleaning other parts of my house while it was vacuuming the floors in the living room and kitchen. I felt like I had someone helping me clean house. Additionally, I love that I can set it to vacuum a certain time each day. Three boys and a husband I am always busy and do not always have time to vacuum the floors everyday like I would like. This allows the floors to be cleaned when we are all out of the house. It is so nice to come home to clean floors!
Dorothy Boucher says
what a great looking machine, I love that you can have it do what you want or go where you want or need it the most,
Lisa Coomer Queen says
This sounds amazing! I would love to have one of these. I could sure use it. Great Review!
Jerry Marquardt says
I would like to thank you for this great review, you help us out so much and it is greatly appreciated.
Betty C says
This looks like a great vacuum and I’d love to be able to afford one.
I would love to have one of these sweepers. It’s a pain to move furniture to clean under it. And, I’ve scratched up my hard wood floors doing so.
Sarah L says
My condo is too small for one of these.
Rita Corey says
I am fascinated by this vacuum. I am a little concerned how it would handle hair. My daughter has hair long enough to sit on and I’d be afraid the hair would just tangle up inside it
Kim Hampton says
I would LOVE to have one of these. It would be so nice to have some help keeping the house clean.
Amber Terry says
I love this. It would be so handy to have and simple to use!
Jerry Marquardt says
Thanks for the great review. I am going to go grab one of these from Best Buy.
Sue M. says
My mom has a robot vacuum and she loves it; I’d love to have one of these myself!
Lisa Ward says
I have always wanted one of these thanks for the review.
Kathleen Kelly says
I had a Roomba that I loved, but it suddenly just wanted to go around in circles. I could not figure out what was wrong with it. I did like it, though. It was fun to watch it do it’s thing, and I didn’t have to lift a finger. I would love to get another one some day. Samsung makes quality products, so this one is probably very good. Have a great day.
my home is calling for this invention after long day of work and being stressed out . just a touch of samsung robot vaccum i know my house will be clean in matter of minutes , thanks for sharing your review
I’ve always wanted one of these. There are so many areas that I really can’t get at with my sweeper unless I move the furniture. We have hard wood flooring and I have scratched it up trying to move the bed.
Dorothy Hubbard says
This review was just what I was looking for. I have back trouble and was thinking about a Robo Vacuum, and your review answered some questions I had.
Sue Mullaney says
I know someone who has a robot vacuum and loves it. I’ll definitely have to check it out!
Sarah L says
My house is too small for one of these. My sister’s house could use it.
jo n says
You had mentioned that it goes smoothly over most obstacles. Does this mean that it can go from hardwoods to carpet or haven’t you checked that out?
This looks like a vacuum from the future! I have heard great things about this!
Angie Fiack says
I would love to have one of these vacuums! I use a wheelchair, so this would really help.
dawn gordon says
i figured youd still have to vacuum on your own as well ..but it would kill time to have that little thing help you while you still got the corners and areas that it would obviously miss..but a good helper…
a good post..well written
Ronald Gagnon says
Ilive in an apartment with both hardwood and rugs..and even though this seems like a terrific machine..I can’t fully utilize it
This may be the coolest product ever. I so need one. I vacuum daily because my husband is so sensitive to dust and we have a cat, that makes it even worse. I could set this guy up and it would just take care of the floors. Love it!
I’m so glad you wrote about your experience. We wanted to get one but were afraid that it would ruin our concert grand piano by bumping into it. It appears that it would be OK. Thanks.
KATE SARSFIELD says
Ha ha! I enjoyed this post. I can imagine coming home to clean floors but a couple of very cross cats!
Sarah L says
My house is too small for this neat machine, but my sister’s house is big and she would love it.
Debbie White Beattie says
This is an awesome product and it makes life just a little bit easier.
Ronald Gagnon says
I would love to have one of these. I could sure use it, I live alone in an apartment with two types of flooring
KATE SARSFIELD says
I’ve seen these on tv and think they’re brilliant. Mind you it’d probably be attacked by one of the cats!
This thing looks so cool! I am all for anything that can make cleaning the house easier, especially if you have a large home. I would love to have a robot that would cook and do the dishes too! LOL! 🙂
Carolyn Massey says
I need this robot vacuum. I have hardwood floors and hurts my back to sweep a lot. I would turn this on and let it do it’s thing.
Jeanna Massman says
I would love to have one of these. I like that it works on a variety of floor surfaces.
