Well i have had this vacuum now for about a day and it has run a couple rounds now and i am very happy with it but there is some things that need work to make this the perfect appliance. First of all i have noticed that debris will not be separated if they are a little longer and bend a little like pieces of paper or pine needles .I also noticed that even while the container is round dust and dirt have a habit of accumulate in the back of it and fill up the 1st compartment very quick (i think it has to do with the metal piece in the middle of the 1st compartment and it seems that as it sucks up more dirt it will clog the little suction hole from the pickup Another thing that really annoys me with this device is when the battery is depleted it not only shuts off the vacuum motor it also disables part of the navigation system since the robot seems to go into a Dumb-mode and only uses a couple pre programmed patterns to find it's way home which seem to also be timed . What happens is that the robot when in find home mode runs a pattern for 25 to 30 seconds then stops and restarts the same pattern over and over which causes the robot to run in circles and be stuck in a loop. Only way to make it find home is to intervene by putting a foot down since it seems only the corner sensors are still active . Now back to how great this robot is despite the 2 little flaws i found so far from which the canister is the more pressing issue here the navigation can be dealt with to accommodate the robot's stupid Find home pattern It is amazing how the robot navigates when all the sensors and the camera are active but it seems to have some issues with certain colors It does not like paper cartons with a light brown color and it also has issues with a shiny dark brown The Wheels on this robot are well designed and have a lot of traction ... it would have been nice if the rear wheel would have some rubber too so it would be easier to clean it since dirt for some reason accumulates a lot more on bare plastic then on rubber wheels The robot is not overly noisy and is a little quieter then the roomba's It also seems that thee is not a big difference between the copper version and the essential model as a matter of fact i think If i can find a way to get into the brain of this lil buddy i can make some changes to the vacuum motor control i can get the same performance then the copper version since i think it's the same motor and controller just a different power band since i can hear the motor cranking up to higher rpm every once in a while when it thinks that it is getting on carpet . But i will find out as soon as i find a way to dump the firmware All in all this lil robot is sweet and performs just fine but i think we have to tinker a little bit to find out what really can be done with these and since i doubt that samsung made the whole firmware open source there is only one way to find out what else is hidden in this lil device and that is to dump the firmware and have a good look I can without a doubt recommend this robot and i am sure it will serve you well until the batteries go bad (siriously samsung you claim 1 year warranty but only give the batteries a 6 month warranty which is cleverly hidden and not mentioned anywhere but the manual in japanese Bonzai writing ....NOT COOL) Oh one more thing samsung ...... Would it have killed you guys if you would have given this lil gizmo a auto turn on timer so it starts vacuuming at a given time of day and on certain days? it would be nice if someone from samsung could email me to let me know if it is possible to use the sensors for data communication since it is obviously able to recieve a signal from the base station

Bought to raise the washer and dryer and to have extra storage. The drawers are self closing and appear to be made well. It should be noted that the storage compartment is not deep enough to hold average size bottles of detergent, bleach or softener, so I was a bit disappointed. I believe they are over priced, but looking around they all tend to charge about the same for the pedestals. I would recommend, but only if you don't want to use the drawers for taller bottles.

Poor value overall
from Albuquerque, NM, USA
Poor battery life- always needs recharging Poor suction- have to use the device 2-3 times to clean the carpet. Poor mapping- easily becomes stuck on furniture

POWERbot Essential Cleaning Robot Vacuum is a great addition
from Manhattan Beach, CA, USA
We have had our Powerbot for a week now. It has been great. This is the first automatic vac we've had and we've been really surprised about its performance. On hardwood floors it works great navigating and cleaning. We have a Golden Retriever so the canister fills with fur and needs to be emptied after each use. Since we have two levels of floors, it needs to be moved manually between levels. One comment is there is not an easy handle to carry the 10 pound unit. As to the stairs between the levels, the cliff sensor works great and I have no worries that it will "go over a cliff". On carpets it performed much better than our upright. It seems like the slow speed and meticulous patterns of the Powerbot really deep cleans the carpet. We ran it about 5 times to thoroughly clean the carpet. Now the carpet feels much lighter and fluffier. It did pick up a tremendous amount of fur. Things we noticed other than the handle for carrying. Edge cleaning may not be its forte as it does not consistently head totally into the baseboard to clean and stands off from the baseboard when running parallel. The sensors work very well. The unit finds the charging station well on the hardwood floor but has difficulty when we have it on carpet. We are very close to rating this a 5, but we'd reserve that for the perfect unit.

The best money spent in log time excellent vacuum cleaner.
Be patient it seems to have a learning curve.
from St. Louis, MO, USA
I have to admit the first couple of times I activated it I was not impressed. But It seems to have a learning curve. First time I used it did the same room twice and never went into the second room. Now it does both rooms. It has some issues with the floor vents., seem to confuse it. But over all it works as advertised. I was a little worried about the small canister but it seems to hold enough fur (2 cats and 2 dogs) to get the 2 rooms done before it fills up.Now if it only had a timer feature to automatically do the floors at a certain time every other day that would be great.If looking for a robotic vacuum I'd recommend it.
My newest Best Bud, "Sammie"
from Eugene, OR, USA
This robot vacuum is a kick to watch and it does a better job of cleaning than I expected. I am partially disabled and "Sammie" is a godsend. Part of the fun is trying to find him in one of my rooms when he gets lost looking for the base and shuts down.
from San Diego, CA, USA
Very impressed with this robotic vacuum! It's a huge time-saver and our floors are now cleaner than ever. The first time we ran the PowerBot (shortly after vacuuming the house) it picked up a full container of dust that had been missed. It works well on our wood floors as well as bathroom tile and bedroom carpets. It's fast and easy to empty. We run it about 3 times a week, and it can cover a large downstairs area on a single charge. When the battery is low it returns to base to recharge.
