Samsung PowerBot VR9000 review

 

We first spotted the Samsung PowerBot VR9000 robot vacuum last year in Berlin, at the IFA consumer electronics and home appliances trade show . At the time, it was pitched as a high-end addition to Samsung's Asian and European lineups (it costs £700 at...

Though it didn't beat them outright, the PowerBot VR9000 kept up with Neato and Roomba in our tests, and it bests them both with its slate of unique features, including a killer point-cleaning feature.

The PowerBot lacks a side-sweeping brush to help it clean along walls, and it wasn't quite as sharp a navigator as Neato.

Top-of-the-line models from Roomba and Neato each clean better than the PowerBot while costing hundreds less. We're sticking with those.

Samsung Powerbot VR9000

 

The Powerbot VR9000 is Samsung's latest flagship robot vacuum cleaner boasting a host of sensors to navigate your room and avoid obstacles, a wide drum brush promising comprehensive cleaning and CycloneForce, which Samsung claims delivers up to 60...

Decent navigation ; Good on hard floors ; Gentle on furniture ; Remote control gives manual control

Struggled with small steps ; Poor carpet cleaning ; Doesn’t get close to edges ; Tangles with cables ; Expensive

A decent robot vacuum cleaner, but not good enough that we’d recommend you buy one.

Impressive suction from a robot vacuum, but navigation is still a stumbling block

The Samsung Powerbot VR9000 claims to map your house and calculate the optimum cleaning path before returning to its base for recharging. We sent this robot vacuum cleaner off to our lab to see how well it actually does navigate, and of course how well...

Samsung Powerbot VR9000 review

 

Which do you prefer: Having spotless floors or having a robot vacuum for you? Because you can't have both.

The POWERbot is powerful, easy to use, and has some neat features. It’s good on both carpet and bare floors, picking up a good amount of debris and pet hair. It’s rugged enough to roll right over minor obstacles but gentle enough not to bang the hell...

Samsung POWERbot VR9000 Review

 

Samsung's cleaning power is unequaled by all of the robot vacuums on our lineup. Its strong motor is also covered by a five-year warranty, so it's a great buy. It also includes a remote control that features a point-and-shoot method of directing the...

This robot vacuum had the greatest overall cleaning power of all the bots on our lineup.

It isn’t intuitive to use, and support is lacking for this unit.

The Samsung POWERbot excels in the most important category: cleaning. It also has an impressive navigation system that prevents it from bumping into most obstacles in its path. However, manufacturer support couldn’t help us in finding filter or battery...

Samsung POWERbot VR9000 Review: A Luxury Vac Worth the Price Tag

Samsung POWERbot VR9000 Review: A Luxury Vac Worth the Price Tag

 

Like a fancy touchscreen watch that reminds you to buy milk, a robot vacuum is a luxury few of us actually need-but many of us would love to have. For years

Do you already own a vacuum? If the answer is no, then you're probably better off spending half the POWERbot VR9000's price tag on a nice Dyson or something because you'll still need to have an old-school vacuum on hand. But if the answer is yes, and...
