... tough choice to decide which robot vac would work best for me and my home
February 8, 2018
It was a tough choice to decide which robot vac would work best for me and my home. Many options, all seem to do the basics but differ greatly on how they go about it and how successful they are. Took a chance on the R7065 based primarily on the recent review in Consumer Reports, where it was ranked #2 (another more expensive Samsung model was ranked #1). Was not disappointed!
R7065 has outstanding suction and has no problem picking up deeply embedded dog hair from my carpet. It actually seems to do a better job at this than my Dyson upright, and it absolutely blows away the Roomba robot vac it replaced. It has plenty of battery and dirt bin capacity to pretty thoroughly clean all of the rooms in my home. Navigation so far seems spot on as it hasn’t gotten lost or hung up on the furniture yet. One of the selling points for me was how it has a mapping system to image your house and build a navigation map to avoid obstacles. Seems to work great. I love how it neatly maneuvers itself around anything it can’t push out of the way, such as a chair or table leg.
Scheduling it to work at a set time and date is easy enough, although the star of the show for me is how easily it integrates with Google Home via WiFi connection. Everyone in the house gets a kick out of how I can control it with my voice. It also works with Alexa, although I don’t have that to test. In all, highly recommend and would definitely buy again
