First Robot Vacuum

Submitted by 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.

Submitted by 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

Submitted by 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

Submitted by 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

Submitted by 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?

Submitted by 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.

This product has SERIOUS issues

Submitted by aschnee - 3/28/2019

I bought this device several month ago. It first looked nice, but slowly started to see the problems: - the device frequently gets lost and can't find its way back to the charging station. It suppose to do mapping, but it does not use the map to find its stations. In an L shaped room 8 out of 10 times it just tries to go through the wall for a few minutes and the stops with empty battery. - mapping function exists, but it is useless: it is not stored, it 'generates' something every time during cleaning and forgets it right after - even when the device returns to recharge, but before finishing the cleaning 9 out of 10 times after recharging it cleans the same are again... - scheduling is a JOKE: the only option available is to run every day or never. - lots of times it is able to go under a furniture, but unable to get out from it - (pet) hair stuck in the cyclon force chamber and never gots out to the storage part of the bin I general half of the advertised features does not exist or does not work as expected.

SUPER BOT!!

Submitted by MASTERANDZEJ - 3/24/2019

This vacuum struggled a little to navigate around obstacles but offers so much suction once it gets to each mess. There was only one vacuum that cleaned up more debris. The POWERbot is comparatively expensive, though, and it has a few other quirks. The suction from this unit was impressive on every type of debris and on every surface. We tasked this and every vacuum in our comparison with removing kitty litter, cereal and pet hair. It did a great job on all of them, and a cool transparent window on top of the machine allows you to see the results of its hard work. If we were just judging suction power this would be at the very top of our robot vacuum reviews. It was especially good at getting pet hair. There were a few issues in terms of navigation with this machine. It got tripped up on the edge of one carpet in my home over and over again that most competitors easily got over. It also got stuck under a couch and required human intervention to get unstuck. It was not even a common place to get stuck, so that was disappointing. Most others in our robot vacuum comparison cleaned under the couch and came right back out. It also got stuck on one of the larger transitions from tile to hardwood flooring. This was, at least, a very common place to get stuck during our testing. Many of the best robot vacuums went right over that threshold, though. The POWERbot got stuck and stayed stuck, again and again. It took human intervention to get this vacuum back to cleaning. This one was not the easiest to use. While it does have a digital display, it is not very sophisticated and it was sometimes hard to know why the vacuum stopped when it did. One thing that made it easier to use was the fact that it didn't shut down completely every time we picked it up. When we saw this, or any unit headed for cords or other trouble, we would pick them up; this is one of the few that just kept on going when we set it back down, most of the time. The others had to go through their startup routines all over again. The Samsung POWERbot was relatively easy for maintenance. We were able to empty the bin and clean the brushes quickly and easily. It was a little loud when it was in motion but not unbearable. This is one that got stuck pretty often, though, so you will have to be around for its noisiness. It is not very self-sufficient, and that detracts from its overall ease of use. One thing that makes this unit convenient is the Wi-Fi connectivity. You can control this robotic vacuum through your smartphone or Amazon Alexa. There is no carry handle on the POWERbot, which was a problem because it got stuck on a regular basis. You have to pick it up with both hands when it does get stuck. Also, if you have a home with two floors and need to take it up and down stairs, it is a little less convenient. This product comes with a one-year warranty, which is average. Samsung POWERbot R7070

1st time owner of POWERbot

Submitted by Cocosugargoat - 2/19/2019

I ordered the Powerbot on line and it came on time in two days. Packaging and directions first rate. I charged for 30 minutes and ran for the first time. It appears to be doing a better job than my Shark robot vacuum. it went under coffee table with no problem, into corners with ease and did not fall down staircase. I like how you empty container, very convenient with just a push of a button from top. Still in first week of owning product. Five stars so far, I hope it continues.

Wishful thinking

Submitted by AdrianD123 - 2/16/2019

I had the POWERbot R7040 for about a month now and used it a few times when I was able to supervise it and get an idea what it can do. I was hoping for better performance but I guess it was wishful thinking. This is the first robot vacuum I bought and I am a bit disappointed based on its price and performance. Here is my review: The good: It runs a good amount of time on a charge, goes back to the charging pad when battery is low, connects to wiFi, changes vacuum power from hardwood to the carpet, it repeats cleaning if you set it up like that, The bad: my biggest complain is that this vacuum detects imaginary obstacles and it's wasting battery power rotating slowly around an imaginary obstacle, multiple times, stopping and changing direction with no apparent reason, the patterns on carpet and hardwood are also detected as obstacles and the robot stops repeatedly, turns around goes around that imaginary obstacle. On a sunny day the hardwood reflects the sun and the robot stops at every hardwood plank and this way it spends time and battery power that could be spent cleaning. Also for some reason can't pick up small crumbs on the hardwood but it picks some of the large ones. Also it doesn't clean well dust and crumbs along the wall and in the corners even after a few passes. Another problem it has is that it can't detect very well the big objects in the room and it runs full speed in some of them like furniture legs. It is detecting walls OK. The last issue I want to list is the room coverage. Even after 2 runs there are areas in the room where it doesn't go to clean. My guess is because it's wasting time and battery power detecting imaginary obstacles or it goes a few times thru the same areas. I guess it does a better job cleaning a room with minimum furniture and carpets/hardwood with no pattern. It looks to me that this device needs a software update to fine tune the performance but I'm not sure if the robot it's capable of that even when connected to WiFi or if Samsung send out updates,

Died after less than a month

Submitted by Dead vacuum - 2/5/2019

This vacuum was great while it worked. It would no longer turn on after less than a month, and I sent it in for repair. The Samsung team replaced the main board and sent it back to me. I charged it and then started it. The vacuum made it 10 feet and then died again. Terrible durability and terrible service. Also be aware that the return window is only 15 days, so I now have a useless vacuum that I cannot return.

Dosent work well

Submitted by robovaccum - 1/28/2019

The quality of the product is poor. The product dosent use any pattern and i have noticed that it goes in a haphazard fashion. I have noticed that it holds less than 45 mins of charge time. The robo cleaner is thick, so that it wouldn't go underneath my cabinets, so the edge cleaning feature seems to be useless. Unlike other robo cleaners, there is not a way for this product to avoid certain areas with either sensors or other means. Very disappointed with the purchase. Not worth the price.

Such a disappointment

Submitted by dolmarzinoli - 1/14/2019

Update: 01-14-19: After having this since September, my enthusiasm for it has all but died and this is because of the battery. Why build a bigger motor into a device and fail to give it the appropriate battery to handle the bigger motor?!? I barely get 20-25 minutes out of it before it needs to recharge and that barely gets it out of my dining room. There also appears to be an issue with the navigation and it cannot go in a straight line and misses debris. Super disappointed to be honest. Save your time and money and go with a device that has a bigger battery Original Review: I couldn't wait for my new Samsung Powerbot to arrive. As a loyal Samsung consumer, and after being so impressed with the original Powerbot that I bought in 2015, which is still running strong, I was excited to add this to our house. Upon arrival I immediately unboxed it and got it charged up. Once charged, setting up the daily schedule was easy. We are a three pet household and keeping up with the shedding isn't an easy task. Fortunately, this little wonder makes it look easy. The suction is powerful however when it is running it is surprisingly quiet. It also guides so smoothly across our floors (area rugs and hardwoods) and can turn on a dime with such precision. The robot's navigation is on point and in the 12 times we have run it, it didn't get stuck or hung up on anything which is fantastic. Our former robovac was constantly getting stuck which can get annoying after multiple assists. It seamlessly works with Alexa as well as our Galaxy Note 9 phones too! That said, there are three "disappointments" that I would like to mention as well. First, it would be awesome if it had a side brush. With that said, the incredible suction that this robovac has does wonders but could benefit from a side brush. Second, I really wish the battery was bigger as it does have to recharge before completing its cleaning cycle. Third, I really wish the dustbin was just a smidge bigger. These aren't real decision-making disappointments but they are worth mentioning. Overall, we honestly couldn't be happier with the new addition to our robot housecleaning arsenal and I am pretty sure you will be happy too! Samsung makes a great robovac and you'd be making a great choice in purchasing this one. Now I just need to figure out how to get our cat to ride on it.

Does not work well with rugs.

Submitted by LOve two shop - 1/12/2019

R7040 has major problems with rugs on hard floor. One rub is a robot-width from the wall and when it goes off the rug and turns around it has major problems climbing back onto the rug, It sense the edge and stops and tries to go a different direction, repeatedly fumbling a simple transition to the rug. I see none of its claimed behavior: EasyPass™ Wheels - Large wheels move smoothly over obstacles, transitioning from hard floors to carpet with ease.

Dust Bin has a design flaw

Submitted by 28hou - 1/10/2019

Purchased vacuum on 12/17 and 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.

Very dumb robot

Submitted by Hiredgun - 1/7/2019

I have had this machine for about 8 months now and it seems to get stupider and stupider all the time. It keeps running into things. One time I watched it take 30 minutes to get out of a corner. You can't program it to run on certain days of the week only every day and that does not work. I set it to run at a certain time each day and it only runs once. It also runs over the charging station moving it all over the room, this is when it does not need charging. When it does need charging it takes a few times to dock and again it moves the charging station all over.

Inconsistent performance

Submitted by Dwaynewm - 1/5/2019

I would like to start by saying I love samsung. I have many of their products that's why I bought this product just before Christmas. Pros: It works well on our carpet and hardwood floors. Cons: Consistently gets caught up in our dining room chairs and has a difficult time finding its way back for charging. At times was unable to find its way back before the battery died. A couple times it didn't recognize the chairs and would slighlty ride up on the leg and get stuck.

Does not work on pattern rug

Submitted by H8ToBMean - 1/5/2019

My family bought this as a gift for me for Christmas and I was so excited because my sisters actually have the iRobot and they love it but my family thought they were doing better when they purchased the Samsung powerbot r7040 I quickly unboxed the product and put it to charge and was anxious to get it to vacuum my rug especially in my living room and was disappointed when I found the the vacuum would not vacuum the entire rug but which is a pattern area rug that features black squares and no matter what I do the powerbot will not vacuum those black areas is there any way to get a refund so I can purchase the iRobot

Just unboxed and love it already

Submitted by JessCo - 1/3/2019

I just finished opening it up and charging it. After waiting the 30 minutes of charging, it's ready to go. As I'm writing my review, I'm watching it do things my Roomba was always missing. Not too loud, and the first time a vacuum didn't bother my dogs. Love it!

This is a Great Product!

Submitted by kaddak - 1/2/2019

I bought this for both my wife and myself for Christmas this year. We are amazed at how well this appliance works from a thorough cleaning on both carpets and hardwood floors to automatically returning home to the charger when battery running low. We've tried many of the features and actually have not gotten through all of them as yet but what we tried works perfectly. I was hesitant to try this appliance but am in no way disappointed
