Mapping fault

published

The suction is good for a robot vacuum and I am pleased with this feature.
I have been trying to map my house now for 4 days. I have had to reset the map three times now. Twice the vacuum has gone up the hall way and then "created" a wall on its way back to charge. It passes the opening several times during the clean, but as soon as it tries to return to base, it maps a new wall that doesn't exist and gets stuck in the hallway going back and forth. The other occasion the map went skewed mid clean and again couldn't return to home base.
This is so frustrating! I've spent good money on a sub-par product that after less than a week makes me want to throw it away! Disappointing.

Does the job and good value for money I guess

published

I tested the vacuum feature. Product arrived well packaged. It cleaned intelligently all it can.
However it's normal power is not enough to pick up small specs. You have to put it to Turbo mode. I saw in description it mentioned that this will not work on dark surfaces after I ordered. Luckily mine worked on short hair black carpet and black tiles.

App has good features as well. Don't know how to share the device with other members at home.

Purchased in February 2020 at Kogan.com for A$448.00.

Exceeds expectations!

published

I had no idea a robot vacuum could be so effective! I love watching it go about its business cleaning my floors. The phone app is brilliant and was easy to setup. The unit is quiet with above average suction and even tackles our rug without issue and brings it up brilliantly! The floors have never looked better!

Didn't work as advertised

published

The robot had good technology, mapping. Virtual walls, scheduling etc but it had no suction power whatsoever, it couldn't even pick up the flour we put down as a test. It could have been a faulty one as we received a full refund but some of the reviews on the kogan website make me think otherwise.

Our R50 has suddenly started to have problems with the failure one laser? It worked fine yesterday, found it's way back to the dock and this morning won't move unless remotely operated in manual? We've only had ours a couple of months so this is quite concerning.
