The Shark is a circualar shape with a diameter of 12.6 inches and a very low profile of 2.6 inches so it should have no problem fitting underneath furniture.
This Shark ION ROBOT 750 comes with a long-life lithium-ion battery.When fully charged this gives over an hours worth of cleaning time, which should be sufficient to cover most of the area on one level in your home. The vacuum comes with a docking unit which should be set in a clear area so it has the space to manoeuvre itself onto the charging points when it returns to recharge.
The Shark robot vacuum has a rotary brush underneath which is a self-cleaning Brushroll. This self-grooming system it’s been designed to capture short and long hair and untangle itself so you don’t have to remove it an do it. It is built with a helix-pattern and high-tensile bristles that is the secret of a thorough pickup on carpets and hard floors. It also has 2 side brushes which target the edges and can sweep the dirt and dander into the path of the rotary brush.
The dirt is sucked into the incorporated dust bin which is easily accessed on the side of the vacuum. The filters are installed in the dust bin and can be cleaned while you empty the dirt out. Don’t be surprised if you have to empty the bin often in the beginning as these robot vacuums can pick up an amazing amount of dirt, as you clean more often then it shouldn’t build up as much.This vacuum can handle hardwood floors or carpets and can transition between both easily.
The Shark ION ROBOT 750 Connected has smart sensor navigation, and what this means to the average person is that it can seamlessly navigate around the floor sensing obstacles in its path. It can sense walls and larger objects more easily and will just move away from them, if it doesn’t sense a smaller object it will only gently bang into it. The mapping on the Shark is similar to many cheaper robot vacuums which is it will head in a straight line until it encounters an obstacle then it will change direction, it will do this over the whole floor sometimes going over some areas more often than others as it works randomly. It’s not the most efficient way of cleaning but surprisingly effective. There is also a spot cleaning option for use if you have a spill or a dirtier area which will work in a spiral out from the centre of the spot.
The controls on the Shark are on the top of the unit. There is a clean button, spot button and dock button. You can manually start the vacuum by pressing the clean button on the unit. Alternatively you can download the Shark app on your smartphone and control the Shark robot vacuum from that. You have the same 3 options of control and you also can press on ‘find my robot’ if you come home and your vacuum isn’t on the dock, it can get stuck sometimes. On the app you also have the option to set a schedule so that you vacuum can work at a set time every day which means you don’t even have to think about that chore, it will set itself off and return to the dock when it runs out of charge.
Sometimes you have items in your home that are easy to knock over but you don’t want to move them every time you clean. The iRobot Roomba 650 comes with a virtual wall to block doorways or around certain items, the way Shark have worked with this is to give you some magnetic tape that you can set around certain areas or items so that the vacuum won’t pass over it.
Customers are saying that the Shark robot vacuum doesn’t disappoint and gives similar performance to more expensive vacuums. Buyers feel that it is easy to setup and can manoeuvre over different surfaces easily. People have found the Shark quiet to run and does an excellent job of keeping the floors looking good.
Not much in negative comments at the moment, some problems with the working of the app.
If you are looking for a cheaper robot vacuum then check out the Shark ION ROBOT 750, it can clean on a schedule, it can clean all floor types, it’s small enough to fit under low furniture and it can be controlled by an app on your smartphone.There are robot vacuums out there with more features or which can clean more efficiently but you will need to pay more for them. With the Shark you get a good cleaning machine.
