How is it that TR ended up with a vacuum to review? did sammy just send whatever it had lying about?
Thanks for the review! I'm actually going to buy one of these things soon, but obviously not this one if it doesn't clean properly. Any chance you will review a Roomba soon?
Has the same problem as a Dalek; it doesn't do stairs. It seems pointless unless you live on one level and then you need to get another cleaner to do the bits it can't reach. As it is the difficult to get to parts that take the time when vacuuming the job will still take almost as long as normal. I thought Dyson were expensive but at least they reach the parts this cleaner can't get to.
This is a bit worrying. Reviewing vacuum cleaners?! Wow, that sucks! (sorry couldn't resist the pun)
bobsta - that's exactly the kind if vacuous commentary we don't want around here.
@bobsta: you only need to worry if you see Gene Simmons performing firmware updates on these things, and if they start attacking people. :-)
Samsung removing yet another reason for marriage ( Shhhhh don't tell the wife I said that )
£400 for substandard vacuuming? It's probably cheaper just to get married.
@ Tim Sutton, the impending divorce would cost you waay more than £400 once your wife gets wise.
I'm guessing you're not married - it's significantly more expensive for sub-standard vacuuming ;)*ducks and runs for cover*
I do my own sub-standard vacuuming, thank you very much.When the wife tells me to.
@Digital Fury: Let's hope it doesn't run on Windows otherwise there's no telling what damage a service pack would cause - it would probably start blowing dust all over the place! :-)
I like this review, it's good to see other types of technology covered - and in this case there is clearly a lot more development needed before it is cost effective and actually useful.Anyway, this review needs more comments, so:Dyson: The Apple of the domestic appliance world. Discuss. ;0)
I bought a substantially cheaper 'no-name' brand robot cleaner as a joke present for the wife to get me out of the vacuuming. We use it in one room on a hard floor. However, the joke is now on me as before every use it has to be emptied and 'deep cleaned' to remove the strangling hair that wraps itself around every moving part. It takes me about 15 minutes, in which time I could have dragged the Dyson upstairs and done a better job!
does it actually vacuum or does it just sweep with a few toothbrushes?
Don't wast your money on this Robot. It most of the time just brushed some dust around. After one and half year it stopped working after about half a minute every time. I send it up for repair and got it returned a few weeks later even more faulty than before asking €229,- saying it was not within warranty because it was 'Mechanically damaged'. It had never been dropped or anything like that. All I used it for was to hover my small 60m2 flat on one floor with laminated flooring. But apparently you're not supposed to do that with this Robot. What you actually are allowed to use this robot for is still unclear to me
Evidently a Dalek can levitate :P
