We have large area rugs in 3 rooms on top of laminate floors and have problems with the black in our rugs, The roomba will not work on the black in our home. The black causes errors to occur. Will this happen with the powerbot?

Does it get caught u on wires or other stufff
Related: Samsung Powerbot, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by anonymous 15 days ago

The Samsung Powerbot is designed to handle the issues wires may cause. It has really large wheels that help it a great deal when handling wires, excellent navigation, and coverage. That being said, it’s not a perfect thing, and every now, and again it may still get caught in a wire. It's good to make sure and remove any wire that may have a sharp end to it to avoid dragging an object on flooring, such as hardwood.

will wires on floor cause a problem with samsung
Related: iRobot Roomba 980, Samsung Powerbot, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by Ken 26 days ago

The Samsung Powerbot is designed to avoid getting tangled up in wires, but it always depends on the degree of wires as well. Are the wires very thick? This could potentially pose a problem because it may drag the wires, but for the most part it should navigate quite solidly. This vacuum has large wheels, which helps it maneuver over wires a bit better than the average vacuum robot.

Will it clean shag .
Related: ILife V3s, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by anonymous 10 days ago

Overall, a robotic vacuum is not the best choice for shag carpeting. Most will struggle on shag, or even high pile carpets. An iRobot Roomba 980 would work better on thick carpeting than an ILife V3s (although it'll likely still get stuck sometimes). The Neato Botvac D80 would be a great choice if you were strictly talking about medium to high pile carpet, but true shag carpet would get tangled in vacuum robots brushes, much like it would on a regular vacuum that uses spinning brushes.

I am looking at buying a robotic mop. Does the ilife V5S allow you to select only vacuum or does it vacuum and mop each time? How well do any of the iRobot's mop?

Which robot mop is best for cleaning urine spots on vinyl?
Related: iRobot Braava jet 240, bObsweep PetHair, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by anonymous 16 days ago

I would probably choose between the iRobot Braava jet 240, or the iRobot Braava 380t. Depending on your needs the bObsweep PetHair may have more of an overall usefulness to it (the irobot braava 240 and 380t are not meant for carpet floors), so it really depends. 

As far as purely mopping, then the iRobot Braava jet 240 is worth trying out. It has a large bin, and works great on tile, hardwood, and linoleum. It features 3 cleaning modes: dry sweeping, damp sweeping,and wet mopping. It has a very straight forward design that makes it very simple to use, just press the only button it has and it starts up. Its navigation is not sensor based, but rather bumper based, so you won’t need to set up any sensors to get it going. Both the damp, and wet modes employ the jet's water nozzle to spray the area in front of it. You'll fill the reservoir with water before each run, which will activate the cleaning agent in those specific pads once they get wet. 

The iRobot Braava 380t is similar to the 240, with a few exceptions. Unlike the 240, the 380t has a HEPA filter, and the 380t is also a bit heavier. Aside from those two things, and the fact they look different in design, they both work virtually the same.

Should I buy the Ecovacs N79
Related: Ecovacs Deebot N79, Robotic Vacuums | Submitted by anonymous 18 days ago

The Ecovacs Deebot N79 is definitely worth trying out. It’s an affordable model that cleans effectively. It has a fantastic suction power of 1000 pa, a 3 in 1 brush that cleans allergens, it cleans well around edges, and a great battery life of 4 hours. It features 4 cleaning modes: Auto, Spot,Edge, and Single room cleaning mode. It's an ideal choice for pet owners, and even has a hepa filter. A downside to this device is you’ll have to come in and rescue it every now and then because it may get stuck. It also has a rather lengthy charge time.
