It’s not perfect but a great entry level for robot vacuum
I have been looking at buying a robot vacuum for ages and now I have done it. I originally wasn’t going to get this model or brand but I didn’t want to waste money on a product that may not be for us. I have a very active household with kids, 2 cats (long hair) and a dog. I have a fairly large backyard so of course we bring some dirt in. I use to be a stay at home dad so the house was spotless, I had the time to do it all, since starting my business, I am now working full time and I might say the house is the last thing that get attended to. I ...had someone come and clean for us but the result never last and pretty much the day after it was like nothing had been done. So we stopped using this service and we tried get some cleaning done more regularly. Well that didn’t last. So I came across a good deal on amazon for this model, yes it wasn’t “the One” but it was on sale for $299 and it had some good features so I bought it. It got delivered the following week and on it’s arrival everyone was curious. So first, the setup is quick, clip the brushes, the main rotation brush, plug the base and charge for 4h. My advice on the first run, be home as it might get stuck on things you had no idea, vacuum before the first use, not a deep clean but just enough so you don’t have to empty the bin 4 times like me on the first run. I was expecting that so not a big issue. But since it’s running every day I only have to empty the bin when I get back in the evening . The result is fantastic, I now have that feeling of a clean house again every day. Yes it’s not perfection they are some small bug in the navigation system but so far it manages to get back to base every time and it does the whole house on one charge. We have 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen dining, a lounge and formal dining on the same floor. It cleans them on one charge in around 80min It goes under the beds, under the furniture, and since using it on a daily basis the house is tidier too. Because if you leave things on the ground they will be sucked in or pushed away. So it’s only been a week since I bought it, but the result speaks for itself, a cleaned house every day. I will pay off the investment in a month just by running it daily. The app and setup are simple, I downloaded it, connected to my WiFi and that was done in 5 min top. One thing, you need to make room for it, you need 1/2 a meter on each side and a full 1.5m in front, à clear path so it can navigate back to base. It is quiet, I was expecting a noisy machine by it’s not that loud, I can have a sleep in on the weekend and it doesn’t really wake me up. It’s not louder than a fan on full speed. The app is ok, a bit confusing at time but once you spend a bit of time on it, it’s ok. It will allow you to monitor the time and surface cleaned so far but the map will only be displayed once the cleaning has been completed. I think it learns from previous clean but time will tell. I will update this review if anything happens as I don’t have a lot on the reliability of this machine.
