Shark ION Robot 750 REVIEW
Shark ION Robot 750 Pros
Marian Henry says- “It connects to your home wireless system and you can control it remotely from the company’s app. You can also schedule it for cleaning times. It fits in a dock which recharges its battery, and then moves about the floor when cleaning. Sensors and a bump plate let it know when it’s found an immovable object, and then it turns and tries another angle. The whole thing is really high-tech and impressive”.
Blanca Hawkins says that it is competitively priced.
Lynne Love says- “It still managed to pick up a good amount of dust”.
Johanna Gross states that it is quiet, gets the job done, and finds the dock easily.
Celia Lawson says it is easy to setup.
Shark ION Robot 750 Cons
Gwen Allen says that it is obnoxiously loud.
Essie Pena says- “If you buy this machine be careful of the online technology. This robot depends on an internet connection to operate as advertised. No internet connection and you have no cleaning schedule…it’s just a vacuum sweeper with an on-off switch. It took 3 days repeating the same process over and over to get it connected to Wi-Fi”.
Laverne Beck says- “It’s more of a duster so if you have all hard word or flat surface floors it will do an okay job of dusting but put it on a rug or carpet and it fails”.
Annette Alexander says- “It disconnects from the network frequently and makes no attempt to reconnect, and if not connected the schedule does not work. The schedule appears to be stored in the app, not the unit, bad design. They system and android app has bugs. It does not remember anything about its environment, having to run around stupidly every use resulting in poor coverage. It does not pick up well at all. It’s more of a sweeper than a vacuum. It will find a way to get stuck, even if you use the barrier strips all over your house. It was a very disappointing experience”.
Ella Barnett says- “It does not have suctioning”.
Alma Moran says –“If you have long hair, it requires constant monitoring because the brushes get tangled with hair every few minutes and you need to clean them out”.
Essie Brown writes- “Expected the app to show a map of the house and the coverage for each cleaning, but it does not”.
Stacey Nelson says – “If the room to be cleaned is large, the vacuum seems to just wander aimlessly and has trouble finding the charging dock. It does map out your home and senses edges and corners, so after a few times working around your home it sort of learns where it is and where it needs to go”.
Rachel Ramos complains that the dust bin is very small.
Deborah Gross says- “The battery lasts one hour and then needs 3 hours of charging”.
Shari Farmer says it is supposed to work with the Google Home but she can’t seem to sync it with it.
Beverly Morgan writes that it is hard to reach places that it misses.
Sabrina Holloway says- “I must empty bin each cycle, and it took 3 cycles to get 1000 square feet mostly clean”.
Shark ION Robot 720 REVIEW
Shark ION Robot 720 Pros
June Steele says- “It runs very quietly; much quieter than a standard vacuum. It picks up very fine dirt, hair and lint that a standard vacuum does not. It has a remote that you use to schedule a cleaning time, start cleaning right away, spot clean or return it to the docking/charging station. It has a strip you can lay down across an area that you don’t want it to enter and that works perfectly. It has side brushes so that it cleans up close to walls and furniture. An extra set of side brushes is included”.
Darlene Mason states- “The bin is easy to remove and easy to clean and that’s a good thing as the bin will need to be removed and cleaned very often even with normal use”.
Hope Fuller says that the manual is very easy to follow.
Shark ION Robot 720 Cons
Rosemary Hammond complains that the collection bin is tiny.
Kara Waters writes that she only uses it on the lower floor. She says there is no way it would complete a cycle without emptying the bin
Becky Francis mentions- “Its random pattern is a joke. While it hits some spots 3, 4 or 5 times, it totally misses other areas. Great idea but really needs work”.
Doris Roberson claims that it did not work as well as she had hoped.
Shawna Lucas states that its issue was its detection of cliffs.
Wendy Ball says- “It seems to wander aimlessly while cleaning; no systematic approach to cleaning a room. In doing this, it goes over some areas multiple times; other areas just once and some areas not at all. It would seem that it should go the length of a room if there are no obstructions; then turn, move over slightly and go the length of the room again. Not so. It seems to not know where it is going and when it hits a piece of furniture or a wall, it seems to a lot of trouble deciding which direction to go and heads out not just in the opposite direction, but off in whatever direction it decides it wants to go. Sometimes it zig zags around even without any obstructions. It climbs some rugs okay, but I have a thick rug that it had a hard time getting over. It finally did climb it and then went off the end of the run on the other side and into a corner. Then it couldn’t get out of the corner, as it couldn’t get back over the rug again. It also got caught in another corner where no rugs were involved and it kept circling around and I finally had to move a chair to let it get out of the corner on its own. It can go over thinner rugs, but if the rug is not thick enough or laying really flat, the rug can tangle up in the vacuum, which one of my rugs nearly did. The remote has no directional controls and has no stop for the device. Stop would have been nice when my small dog got in front of it, as I was afraid if it hit her, it might hurt her. The dust cup is very small and fills up fast, but being that these robotic vacuums are small, that’s probably true on most of them. This vacuum seems most useful for small rooms without much furniture or other obstructions. It might work really well for a small home or in rooms without rugs”.
Dana Crawford states- “With no manual control the Shark Ion Shark ION Robot 720 wanders around the room aimlessly like a confused mouse”.
Pauline Gonzales says it should have had a better mapping system to ensure the entire floor was cleaned.
Martha Berry complains that it misses some junk on her rugs, and says that is perhaps due to the weak suction.
Beulah Price says it has a weak battery.
Roomba 690 REVIEW
Roomba 690 Pros
Dolores Fletcher says- “The only redeeming quality is that when it is running, it does a good job with cat hair, cat litter, and dust”.
Madeline Powell says that the navigation system of Roomba 690 is advanced and navigates itself more effectively.
Desiree Hawkins says the Roomba 690 is the most efficient, functional, flexible and affordable robotic vacuum.
Cindy Vargas says the Roomba 690 has Wi-Fi Connectivity, Mobile Application Controls, Amazon Alexa & Google Assistant Integration, Good Battery Life, Self-Charging, 3-Stage Cleaning System, Enhanced Sensors, 5X More Power, is Easy to Use and is Affordable.
Josephine Crawford says the 690 model was pretty good and it cleans much better than the majority of its competitors.
Roomba 690 Cons
Elaine Becker says the Roomba 690 doesn’t work on dark colored rugs.
Caroline Norman writes- “Needs to invest in the programming and logic of the Roomba 690, so it cleans more efficiently, and doesn’t just bump around randomly while missing big parts of a room.
Norma Daniels says it has trouble returning to its docking base.
Melba Willis writes- “The charging process of Roomba 690 took more than two hours”.
Mattie Johnston says that the Roomba 690 has a Faulty Docking Feature and Small Navigation Issues.
Lucille Osborne states- “Could not get the vacuum to connect with my Wi-Fi. I tried using the App, pairing it, but nothing happened. Then I hit the button to make it clean and it worked for 2 minutes, before it was “trapped” in a corner where it would only spin in circles”.
Jennie Gibson writes- “Very difficult time locating “home base” and re-docking. I don’t know why this is, but after the first use, the Roomba went all over the apartment searching for a dock that is actually very close”.
Nettie Carr writes- “Downloaded the accompanying app and it has a feature that tells you how many “jobs” your Roomba has completed. When I first booted everything up and pulled the Roomba fresh out of the box, the app informed me that my Roomba had “already completed” 12 jobs”.
Melody Woods says that it gets stuck on her rug. She says it’s able to resolve the issue on its own and get unstuck but then neglects to clean the other side of the room due to the rug.
