Was good at first.

Bhall 9/14/2020

the first month of having thw vacuum was great. it was sucking properly and running great as scheduled. now the vacuum doesnt suck anything up. ive cleaned it out and unclogged it multiple times but still doesnt work. thw scheduled time to run is no longer a schedule. it dies and doesnt even make it back to the charging station. even when put on charging station the battery will blink like its charging but doesnt charge. the vacuum randomly turned on at 4am last week and didnt suck as usual. wake up to see that it had ran over a big and solid pile of poop from the dog and smeared it everywhere throughout the house. this vacuum seemed to be great for the first month but i dont reccomend it if youre looking for a reliable helper. this vacuum is also not compatible for ios users.

Almost!

Mauro Campos 9/4/2020

the pros so looks sharp the app and remote add excellent functionality. charges and good suction. quiet on normal and still effective the cons very aggressive. maybe it is the sensors but it tends to push things. we have had to remove candlelabras because it made candles fall and break it is a true daily scheduler, it would have been nice to have 7-day scheduling option like my neato. it doesnt learn well. meaning, it almost gets stuck every day on a chair that it backs into. i have to go downstairs to set it level again. you would expect it to learn not to do that.

Absolutely Remarkable

Blueice300 7/16/2020

this is my first bot vacuum and i am now spoiled. after hearing stories from friends and family about their bot vacuums, samsung has them all beat. why do i say this? because i have a pet and i'm the only female in the house out of 4 humans! this thing goes over carpet and cleans it very well i might add. it never gets hung up. trust me, i have watched this bot for hours and it "knows" how to get itself out of tough situations. it is so smart! if you want a bot vacuum that gets the job done and more, buy samsung!

Good at first

JONA 6/22/2020

we got this as part of a bogo for buying a samsung appliance package from best buy on black friday 2018, we received the vacuum december 2018 but didn't use it till we moved into out new house in july 2019. one year later we have had a few issues, first it stopped charging that was fixed under warranty once we got it back it worked fine for a few weeks and then it stopped returning to the home base. it is still doing that to this day, it will go out and clean battery gets low can't find home base and dies in random spots. now the final issue, this week it went out to vacuum died and now won't turn on or charge. we don't use it every day usually twice a week. i wouldn't recommend this. spend the extra money for a roomba.

Your results may vary...

ERIC 6/13/2020

pros: excellent suction, quiet operation, can be managed via the app cons: pathing is poor unless you have wide open spaces. doesn't work with black/dark carpet. struggles with high-pile carpet when it doesn't have to. pathing is poor if the vacuum at all slides. a little too high to get under some furniture (unlike other, similar products) this is why your results may vary. if you don't have carpets or other borders with very dark or black colors, a relatively open floor plan and no higher-pile area rugs then this may meet your needs. if you intend to use the vacuum where any of these conditions is not an issue, then this vacuum would probably work well for you.

Battery life

LAKISHA JACKSONYOUNG 6/11/2020

i recently purchased this product and was very happy it was able to clean my living room, dining room, kitchen and family room on one charge and return back to the charging dock on it's own. i would highly recommend this product. the only thing that is a slight setback for me is if i haven't used it in a few days i have to go through the setup again.

Neat Robot

rsardinas 5/17/2020

We love our little lucy! The vacuum works as advertised (including the battery life). We are considering getting the high end model since it states it has a minimum of 60 minute battery life. Unfortunately, for us, Lucy will often run out of battery before she can make it back to the charging station. We have a 4k+ sq ft home and we have been running her downstairs. Hopefully, getting the one with the larger battery will solve that issue, and we can move lucy upstairs. Honestly, except for the battery, this model does everything we need. It does a surprisingly good job at cleaning up. We have a mix of hardwood, rugs, and carpet on the floor. It cleans under the beds! We have 3 girls, all under 6, and they love watching lucy work. I suppose its not "that" much of an issue. If it dies, you can just bring it back to the charger. It won't pick back up where it left off, if it dies, but depending on where it dies, it will sometimes make it back to the charger (if it hasn't strayed too far).
