Battery replacement costs to much

First Robot Vacuum

lmgst15 5/19/2019

I researched multiple robot vacuums and selected this Samsung because of its ability to map itself without needing strips. I also liked that it was compatible with Alexa and had an app that allows you to change the suction control, pause, start, send for recharge, and it alerts you if it's stuck or needs attention. The only reason I gave 4 stars is because I have dogs and sometimes feel like the filter area is small and frequently needs emptied. If you have any rooms that have raised flooring with a slanted strip to get into, it will not be able to get up it. You will also need to sweep most of your throw rugs yourself ( example: thicker memory foam rugs). Otherwise, great vacuum if you can get it on sale. I purchased for $249, retail $499. I bought it at Best Buy because I could add on the geek squad protection for 2 years that if they couldn't fix it, they would replace it.

Once you know it's idiosyncrasies. Great.

Warrenone 5/8/2019

Well, right out of the box after charging it did a splendid job, But, as I used it,and cleaning the bin and filter I noticed that it was not picking up anything. I cleaned the filter again, and noticed that the paper filter attached to the bumpy foam would not allow any air to pass through. As A result, it just ran around with no suction. I had to remove it and replaced the paper with a piece of open cell foam. It now works better than new, but, I still clean it outside as it collects a lot of fine clay dust, and this is mud season. The other problem was that I had a low shelf on a cabinet that it insisted in backing up on,, and lifting it's wheels off the ground and getting stuck. I installed a 2"X2"to block it and now it goes by that area without backing up. I was impressed by how well it handled muddy paw prints on the kitchen floor. Does not pick them up completely, but, no vacuum does. It is pricy, but does a better job than other robot vacuums I have used.

Poor Battery and Bin Collection

Matrisha08 5/6/2019

Received the vacuum free as a promotional deal after purchasing a kitchen appliance set in December 2018. I have quickly realized that the dust bin cylinder clogs with dust and then the vacuum cannot pick up anything else.This is due to very small opening made to route particles from cylinder portion of dust bin into the actual bin. The battery is also undersized. It lasts for about 20 minutes before having to return to the charger. I also have purchased a Debot off Amazon that has a bigger hole for dust/dirt collection (never clogs) and the battery lasts for over two hours.

We are obsessed with our POWERbot R7040 aka Rosie

redjessi 5/1/2019

I literally do not know why I have not gotten Powerbot sooner! We have affectionately named our 7040 "Rosie" Rosie is the bees knees, she greets me the kitchen at 6am keeping my tile looking awesome. After a charge she heads to the front room, does a great job navigating the toys not picked up from the night before. We try our best to keep the floor free from obstructions but, I have kids so there is that. She cleans our bathroom and a mighty swath down our bedroom. Under beds she does her best work of removing those pesky dust bunnies. I love to see her full of debris, it lets me know she is doing her job. I clean the filter after every usage and I was the filter every other day. I let it dry in my kitchen window. Rosie is super motivating to for my kids as well. They will tell me that their room is ready for Rosie, meaning I can see their floor! No toys, clothes, dirty dishes, the kids are serious about picking up for her and it makes my day!! My son seen a Storm trooper version and that is what he wants for Christmas! I love how I can program her at certain times of the day, but honestly my son prefers to turn her on by hand. Samsung brought a love of clean floors to my family and I am so grateful! We are a samsung family through & through.

Cannot pick up dog hair

Dave1869 4/29/2019

Got this free with our appliances we ordered and were delivered a couple months ago. We have all tile floors and a lab, so thought this would be a great addition to our living space to manage the pet hair. Unfortunately, this appliance does not pick up the dog hair at all. It constantly gets stuck at the transition from the brush to the dirt container. I have even tried sweeping first to make sure there are no clumps and turned the power to turbo. Neither was effective and I have yet to actually find any dog hair make it to the dirt bin.

Why did I wait so long?

Bitdhouse3319 4/20/2019

I bought this a month ago, now I know why I waited so long to decide on purchase! So happy I went with Samsung POWERbot and not the competition! Works like a charm and saves my time cleaning. I have all hardwood floors with 2 large area rugs, no pets, and I'm amazed at the power and cleaning! My only issue is it doesn't get under the kitchen cabinets, so I sweep out under them.
