Recently married and moved into a 2bedroom condo. Because my wife and I work long hours while our lovely king charles cavalier dog sheds nonstop at home, we wanted to find a robot vacuum to help us save time. I must say that we have NOT laid a hand on our manual vacuum since buying the powerbot. We purchased the Powerbot from Samsung over Roomba and other brands mainly because of their reputation and features. The suction power is as advertised and extremely powerful. This sucks up everything including our dogs hair. The best part is that you adjust the suction settings in order to conserve battery so that it runs longer on one charge or if you just need it to be quieter. We have it scheduled so that it runs once a day at 11am. Usually takes anywhere around 2-4 hours to finish vacuuming around 1100 square feet condo, depending on how efficient it is. BUT it's not perfect: - The floor mapping is a gimmick and doesn't work. I've tried to map our whole entire apartment countless times, but the powerbot fails to map out our bedrooms and only does the livingroom and kitchen. - Somtimes, the powerbot gets stuck in one of the bedrooms and isn't able to find it's way back out to the power station because I think it's just lost. I think if the floor mapping worked as advertised, this would not be a problem. - The remote control pointer also doesn't work as well as we'd like. I've tried pointing to a specific area that needs to be cleaned multiple times but it just doesn't go to where you'd like. So now we just pick up the powerbot and placing it in the area ourselves. Overall, we LOVE the powerbot. It's become a member of the family. I wish samsung would work on the software and the features of floor mapping and remote control. Regardless, I would still recommend this powerbot to anyone who is on the market for a robot vacuum. You won't regret it.

MAJOR FAIL - Constantly stuck on the edge of the stair - NEVER able to complete floor plan creation. After 90 minutes of scanning, as soon as it got stuck or detects itself "lifted" or battery runs out, then whole process would be cancelled immediately. If it already spent 90minutes or 90% scanning, you will have start the process from scratch. There's no way for it to resume floor plan creation. This is a MAJOR FAIL. This is so frustrating.

Comments about Samsung POWERbot Turbo Robot Vacuum:
The only thing about the Robot is it does not always clean the area's I want it to clean, also it does not always want to go back to it's station. As far as cleaning it does a good job.

I love my robot, does a great job, well worth the purchase price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Vacuum gets lost and fails
This vacuum is not ready for the real world. It fails constantly to go over a small area rug. It fails to navigate to a specified room and this command can only be done when the vacuum is charging. It can only clean small pieces of trash but first you will need to pick up larger objects. And its always getting stuck when it is cleaning. Design is too big to go under most items such as sofas, beds, cabinets.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Perfect for Everyday Cleaning
This product clears off my worries on cleaning my house. It helps me a lot especially I'm on the go all the time.
lov to have a vac that can take care of the job that physical is hard for me to do and more often than my husband
does an excellent job....ashamed of how dirty and dusty our carpets were...dogs approve too!
from North Carolina
The 9350 model added counter weights to the front for improved suspension balance making traps in contact with furniture much less likely. Whether on other newer models unknown. Another unique advantage is the large wheels and better treads allowing movement on slick carpets other robots cannot handle. The only choice in some situations.

This is my second Samsung Powerbot. I bought the first one in January and it had an unfortunate encounter with legos. These little machines work great every day. With 2 children, 2 cats and a Great Dane it does what it says it does. It is great for maintaining clean floors. My only complaint is the brush takes a bit of a beating with everyday use. Hopefully Samsung will make replacements available soon. I appreciate the product and while a bit pricey, I think it's an excellent value.
Looks Awesome So Far
from Vancouver, WA
Got my powerbot and I am super excited. Have an iRobot and this thing is super quiet and looks like its built like a tank. Cant wait to give it a weeks worth of joy and see how it handles things.
Very clever machine
from Dayton, NV, USA
I was intrigued by the TV advertisement by Samsung. Instead of getting that machine, I purchased the 350 due to its superior suction. I wanted a robotic vacuum not a sweeper. Although I have no experience with competitive products, this thing is the bomb! It has incredibly clever logic in covering the floor. It is fast and loud (you can quiet it with reduced suction) and really cleans the carpet as well as the bare floor. I had just gotten through vacuuming with my upright vacuum, and the Powerbot picked up so much material it had to be dumped every two days initially (and it has a large collection container). The Powerbot is excellent in totally covering the floor, avoiding and working around obstacles, and traversing thresholds as well as cords. It is expensive, but it is so great having clean floors.
