Quality of cleaning. Best results in garbage and dust collection. If we scattered lumps of dust on the floor, scattered earth from a flower pot or flour, then the vacuum cleaner swept up and absorbed everything, and the fine dust remained on the microfiber cloth.
The floor really got much cleaner after two or three passes. In the programs the robot combines different trajectories: first it goes along the walls and furniture at a distance of 1-2 cm from them, every 15-20 cm it makes a deviation and comes back.
Then begins to move in small zigzags, turning and returning 1-2 times to the same places and at the same time moving. When the robot enters a fairly large open space, it moves in a spiral, trying to cover it.
All programs proved to be effective: for example, a 30-minute program is enough to clean a 15-square-kilometer room. m, hallway, corridor and kitchen 12 sq.m. m, and the basic program at a full charge of the battery enough for quite a good cleaning apartment area of 62 square meters. A large kitchen with a cat that sheds all the time and whose fur is the main prey of an almost complete vacuum cleaner after the basic cleaning.
An indicator light on the display lights up if debris is found, and the robot focuses on the area. It makes sense to run a cleaning program along the walls after the main or a short program, it grabs dust from the baseboards, and this targeted procedure is quite effective.
True, it searches the walls for two or three minutes. This is the only model in the test, capable of disinfecting the floor with a UV lamp. It can be turned off if you want.
Behavior in difficult situations. The robot could not make friends with the 1 cm high threshold. It’s not a problem to move out, but it can’t get in. The robot does not beep, just runs its wheels and tries to get out – and that’s how it once spent 5 minutes of a 15-minute program, until it was pushed.
An unpatched patch of antenna wire under the kitchen furniture was an ambush for all the robots in the test, but this model, once trapped in it, didn’t beep.
Back to basics. Not provided with short programs, in all other cases the robot finds the base without any problems.
Noise level. The model is pretty noisy, but if a normal vacuum cleaner “howls”, then this roar. Certainly, it is connected both to intensive work of brushes and good power of suction, but it is not possible to watch TV at normal volume while cleaning.
Dust collector. The flat plastic container which can be pulled out by pressing a special button. The shape and design is such that you can hold it with one hand and shake all the contents into the bucket without getting your hands dirty.
Cleaning brushes and other parts. Surprisingly, despite the fact that the dustbin was all hair and wool, the brush did not wind ten hairs on itself! Cleaning them was simple.
Filter change/cleaning. The filter cassette is installed in the dust canister and is easy to pull out and put back in after cleaning or replacing the filters. Only dry cleaning you can use a regular vacuum cleaner , and if you use the vacuum cleaner frequently, they need to be replaced every three months. Washable outlet filter.
Additional conveniences. “Virtual wall” keeps the robot from going where it shouldn’t: we restricted access to the kitchen, and in the country house we put the device near the stairs when the robot was cleaning on the second floor. The front bumper protects against hitting furniture and the body of the vacuum cleaner, which is constantly bumping into something.
Remote control. Small and handy, it duplicates the capabilities of the display settings and allows you to adjust the route of the robot, it has a button to select the speed.
Display and control panels. The display is big, management does not cause difficulties, if you read the instruction: each program has a number which you can learn only there, the programs and functions have the English language names, and errors of work problems are designated by numerical codes, and to decipher all this at random will not work.
Timer settings are made with “+” and “-” buttons, which is convenient. The charging base and virtual wall have their own control panels: the base allows you to set the clock and program the cleaning timer by hours and days of the week for the week ahead, and activate the FULL-GO.
Sound signals. Accompany the setting of programs, the beginning and the end of work, but unfortunately they are not fed when the robot can not cope with the obstacle.
