      Still needs some supervision

      This was my first robot vacuum, so I can't authoritatively compare it to others. But first: the things that probably apply to all robot vacuums. It gets stuck. You need to pick up the floor of all cat and dog toys, for example, just like you probably would for regular vacuuming. It will also get stuck under certain heights of furniture that it can barely wedge under. It also gets stuck trying to climb up onto our two fireplace mantles that are about a half inch high. And it will get stuck on any area rug with fringe. Now for things that are specific to this model. I use the exclusion box to keep it away from the rug with fringe, but this means I still need to vacuum that rug and sweep around it manually (I suppose I could just cut the fringe off). There really isn't a solution for the fireplace mantles and odd pieces of furniture unless I buy a few more exclusion boxes. We have a complicated layout on our main floor. Because it does not have mapping capability, it tends to do some areas more than others. It also gets lost trying to return to the base when the battery runs down. I end up just carrying it back more than half the time. The directions say to try moving the base to another location, but there are only a couple places that aren't in the way or visually incongruous. However, the semi-random pattern that the engineers designed it with seems to work pretty well. My advice is not to watch it, or it will be frustrating. It might miss a piece of lint that it is very close to five times in a row. It will not vacuum an area the same way a human would, so you just need to get over that. The huge advantage of not having the mapping capability is that I can use it on all three levels of our house without confusing it. (Can other robots store separate maps for separate floors? I don't know.) At least with this one, I don't have to buy three robot vacuums. Of course, when I use it on the upstairs bedroom level, for example, I have to carry it up the stairs to start it and down again when it goes to the recharge/find-the-base mode. This all having been said, the few times that I have to rescue it each vacuuming cycle and the places where I need to do touch-up manual cleaning still do not detract significantly from the enormous time-saving benefit that I get from using Bob.

      PetsHair+ (Charcoal): Love our BOB! Initially considered a luxury purchase for our home with 2 Scottie Terriers and a free-roaming rabbit, until we used it once! Now a staple! When emptying our canister vac’s HEPA bag, there was always a lot of hair and dust, and an hour after vacuuming, the floors looked dirty again. The first few days we ran BOB 3x/day, emptying the dustbin afterwards and being amazed at all the hair and dust BOB picked up. Our berber carpet is noticeably cleaner – less hair caught in the fibers. Features we love: !!!EFFECTIVE!!!, easy to use, self docking, easy to empty dust bin, seamless movement between flooring (laminate, carpet, vinyl), streamlined design and look, easy weekly maintenance (minutes), optional resume features (docks, charges, vacs, repeat). Loved all the extras included: 2nd main brush, 2 side brushes, 2nd mop cloth, screws and more. We haven’t used the remote yet as batteries were not included. Parts are available if anything wears out – would be very easy to replace. One of our dogs has an immune disorder, which prompted us to consider this purchase. Shop around for sale prices…we paid $250 vs. $899. Highly, highly recommend this product!!! and we rarely take time to write reviews. BestBuy's warranty is ridiculously high in cost, so we didn't opt to pay for this extra.

      Bob is awesome

      I bought a bObsweep pet hair plus robotic vacuum about six weeks ago. The best way to describe how my family feels about “Bob” is how many times you hear in our house, “Bob, is awesome.” Let me share with you some of the reasons this is true. First, imagine coming down each morning to sparkling clean floors. And you didn’t have to sweep/scrub/vacuum them! Second, this robotic saves wear and tear on your body as it does just about all the work for you. Third, this machine is powerful! I had no idea the pets and bird shed nearly as much as they do until Bob started cleaning up after them. An example, my mother vacuumed with her vacuum, then got a Bob because of how much we love ours, then let Bob do his thing. In one room, Bob was filled with hair. This is amazing, because my third reason I love Bob is the large dustbin that usually lasts many uses. Next, the only accessory I had to purchase separately was the mop attachment. It comes with an electric barrier, “the block”, a remote control, the charger, extra brushes, and even tools to clean and replace brushes. Also, the customer service is amazing. There are videos and most information on the website, but you also get personal attention from the bObsweep company. Questions and comments are thorough, useful, and completely personalized. Lastly, we love Bob because it does a great job of cleaning. It even contains a UV light to sanitize. This was a great purchase.

      Not so great...

      I finally decided to try this at the sale price of $249. I bought it to primarily clean my family room wood floor. It just doesn't do it for me. It seems to keep going over the same area and in no certain pattern. I tried all the options. I even spoke with tech support. It also seems to get stuck on too many things. I've had to remove most things from my floors (chairs, plants, cords, etc.) before I use this so it doesn't get stuck. There is no possible way I could have this start on its own and come home to a clean floor. It will end up stuck somewhere. It can't even find its way back to its base. And I placed it in an open area all by itself. I tried using it on my living room carpet and that was terrible. It just made tire tracks like crazy 8s and zig zags. Looked terrible. Had to go back and vacuum it to get the tire tracks out. I'm guessing that all of these Robot Vacuums work the same, not just the bob sweep. These things would probably work fine in a square room with nothing in it. It also works fine if I stand there and control it by the remote. I can keep it from banging into things or getting stuck. Maybe it will do better for you. Mine is now just sitting in the corner. Great investment. Lol.

      Great Investment for Pet Owners

      I have a golden retriever which means I have a lot of fur to deal with. The Bobsweep PerHair Plus vacuum does a phenomenal job picking up dirt and pet fur and has drastically cut down the time I spend vacuuming. I continue to be impressed with the amount of fur it picks up that my other vacuum (Shark Navigator Deluxe) misses. The convenience of this vacuum is only topped by how good it is at vacuuming up pet furs. I schedule it to run twice a day while I am at work and love coming home to clean floors-all I need to do is empty a dustbin full of fur each night! The only, very minor, downsides are that it is a little noisy, and it gets stuck every once in a while. I think these issues come with any robotic vacuum though. Finally-shoutout to the Bobsweep customer service department. The first vacuum I purchased wouldn't charge on its charging station. I reached out to Bobsweep and got a very prompt response from Adam who sent out a replacement and stayed in touch throughout the process. Overall I couldn't be happier with my 'Bob' and wish I had bought him sooner!

      Literally worth EVERY penny!

      I was very skeptical to purchase this as the price was intense and I am a broke college student so where I allocate my money is very crucial, especially living in New York! Needless to say, I saved up money to purchase this, and I am beyond happy that I did! Not only does it work BEAUTIFULLY. I have a dog and a cat and I always come home to a super clean floor. The LED sanitizing light and the mopping feature are just an excellent plus! I also love the auto timer so I can set dates/times for it to run while nobody is home! In addition to the vacuum being exceptional, the customer service is equally phenomenal! I had an issue with one of my wheels after the first few months and they replaced it for free. You get a personalized rep that is yours for the entire duration of having this vacuum. They follow up and check in and do everything that an amazing customer experience should deliver. DO NOT HESITATE! So worth it! **I am NOT being paid for this review either -- Just so pleased that I took the time to write a review**

      Great Little Vac

      Posted

      I received my Bobsweep as a gift for my birthday in December. It does a great job of getting up pet hair. If you have more than one pet, I recommend vacuuming normally also with a regular vacuum. I love that it is programmable to come on anytime and any day you want. The remote is a nice feature as well although the display is very hard to read. It doesn't illuminate very much and you just can't see it very well at all. I had to call customer service because of a problem with the display and i was blown away by the concern on their part. Best customer service I have EVER dealt and it's really not even close. Thank you Ricky!! Comes with a box you turn on that is a barrier and keeps Bob from going places you don't need him to. Only a couple of times has he had a problem finding his home base to charge but he always manages to get there. Honestly, I would not pay $700 for any vacuum, that's just me but mine was a gift so life is good :)

      This is a great device to have if you have pets that shed constantly. I have 2 Siberian Huskies and this is a great addition to my pack. It literally cuts the cleaning time in half because it does the work for you. I turn it on when I leave the house and let it run. There's several options that you can choose from from 15 minute cleaning to up to an hour of cleaning. It also tells you if the device gets stuck on furniture or if it needs charging. It was super easy to setup and very user friendly. Another option that I like is that it has a little mop that you can use if you have hardwood or tiles. I highly recommend this product to anyone!! Safe for pets and children.
