So this vacuum is pretty smart and efficient. But I have found that it can get caught on shaggy carpets. I have one in particular that seems to trap every robot vacuum that runs across it. I have to rescue them every time. This one doesn't seem to lose a wifi connection and that's a plus because the others have lost connection regularly and it's annoying. It cleans the house by going back and forth like a mower. It's efficient when it comes to picking up debris and dirt. I can definitely tell when it's ran while I was gone. The floors look amazing. It is easy to empty and clean. Doesn't take a lot of work with a screwdriver. It's not super heavy but heavy enough. The suction power is great. The battery life is decent. If it's just running on schedule like it's supposed to then you don't have to ever worry about the battery life. I am definitely satisfied with it.
I had 2 irobots, one upstairs and one downstairs. I have since replaced them both with Shark. My shark upstairs is self emptying, which is amazing, and I use this one downstairs since we have hard floors, and not alot of traffic/dirt, so emptying it myself doesnt happen often.The best part about the Sharks is their mapping and zone refinement. My Irobots couldnt do that (newer versions can). The only bad thing about the zones, is you cant shedule a specific zone... only a manual clean can you define which zone to clean. This needs to be updated to support scheduling.
This is my third Shark vacuum. What I noticed is how each next-gen Shark vacuum tends to resolve the small issues with the ones before it. I love this company's attention to detail!In the case of this one, I notice that it has more power. While all work really, really well on hardwood and tile, some struggle on our throw rugs. Some cannot pick up little threads or some create little balls of hair but then cannot seem to pick it up. In this case, I noticed that our throw rugs are nearly as clean as when I use a conventional vacuum cleaner. And, that means less work for me. Love that.The downside is that it's noisy. And, the thing is that Sharks are notoriously noisy. The old ones, the very new ones, and even the highest of the high-end ... all are noisy. Now, we have a different brand in our basement and it's much quieter; however, it also has significantly less power. So, as far as I can determine, the noise is directly correlated to the vacuum's strength/power. To me, that's an entirely fair trade-off.Now, here's a tip: I was looking for how to connect this to my Alexa. I messed around for a day and then finally looked it up. You need to "teach" Alexa the Shark "skill." It takes seconds to tell Alexa to learn the skill. Then, you can just say the name of your vacuum and it's cleaning (or you can tell it to dock). It's super easy ... no "detection" needed.This is a solid robot vacuum. It makes your home cleaner, gets to places that are harder to reach, and is incredibly methodical. It is a wonderful gift for an older parent. It is fantastic as an adjunct to a self-emptying vacuum (which we keep on our first floor where most of the family spends their time). And, it is just plain fantastic for anyone else. Highly recommended.
Great product! It cleans the entire room even if you donâ€™t pre-scan. It has amazing suction without being too loud! I especially love the feature that it can get hair without wrapping on its brush. My husband loves the added filter feature as he has the worst allergy!
My husband and I have been wanting a robot vacuum like this for ages. I think he was more excited than I was when this arrived. Other than having to let it charge, this vacuum was ready to clean right from the get go. Installation and set up with our phones was absolutely seamless. I love how this little Shark gets straight to work. It really is an advanced little vacuum. It only gets stuck every now and then on some of our dining room chairs but other than that, it really works its way around our home with ease. I love that I can use this in between bigger vacuuming days to keep the pet hair and everyday debris away. My floors are so much more clean as this thing has really great suction. It always finds it's way to home base and has not gone down our smaller set of a few stairs into our first floor laundry/mud room. I was worried about this as we need to leave that back door open at times. I am seriously so impressed with the technology this Shark IQ Robot Vacuum holds. We love our upright Shark, and this robot vacuum definitely lives up to the name! Thank you Shark for making another incredible vacuum that we absolutely LOVE!
