    Super Mapping Technology

    Posted
    ronernie

    My Yujin Robot - iClebo Alpha YCR-M05 has functioned flawlessly for the daily use during a whole month since purchased. I did do plenty of research before replacing an older iRobot Vacuum. I discovered iClebo invented the camera mapping system which truly makes this iclebo robot vacuum intelligent! I have followed ALL the user manual recommendations for successful operations of this unit, and have no disappointments to comment on. I have read reviews from some users of this unit that are leaning toward negative commentary. One that I noticed a lot was the screeching noise it might make! Let me tell you, I had that issue and it is not serious at all. It surely was not related to a wheel bearing as many suspected. What I found out is that it was merely the rubber blade on a smooth floor surface squealing. I cleaned the collection box, and I wiped that rubber blade clean after each use. That noise is gone and I believe it was because of the newness of the rubber blade. How did I know it was the blade making the noise? I took the collection box (blade is @ bottom of it) and dragged it blade touching floor as it would in the vacuum, and I heard screech! screech! The exact noise reported in the reviews I read about it. So that is that, it is not a problem at all,and it is just the rubber blade doing its job. It will go away as a few uses of the unit breaks it in. However you need to keep iClebo very clean. It is an instrument of quality - keep it in shape! Make sure you allow the proper space Left & Right of the Charge Base so the robot can navigate home when it needs to. Keep Q-tips on hand. Clean those sensors after every use, or at least after 2 or 3 uses. Also, if you run it @ night with lights off, the camera mapping will only do it's best in the dark and iClebo may get lost. If you run it at night, leave some lights on. Most run this unit during the daylight hours. So, in closing I suggest to anyone interested in this great unit and it's technology to go for it and you will be rewarded with a well designed and super functioning product. BTW, for at least 30 days of daily use, it has not had one error and it has found the base each and every time it completes it's run!

    Great for pet-friendly offices or homes!

    Alpha is fantastic! I keep it at my office, which is both snack- and dog-friendly, but the Alpha works perfectly to keep our blue-gray carpets presentable for daily (sometimes unexpected) client meetings. It also looks super sleek and modern without being over the top. As for features and performance – I couldn’t be more happy. I’ve used other robot vacuums before, so I thought I knew what to expect, but Alpha out performed these expectations. I don’t think of it as a deep cleaner but rather a daily cleaner. It’s amazing how much dust these little guys suck up that we would otherwise be breathing in! The technology is great. Alpha is a “smarter” robot vacuum than others I’ve used. The navigation works great for our office space, and we just let it zig zag around. No one bothers worrying about it getting stuck; it usually never does. The sensors are sensitive enough that it often avoids obstacles (chairs, desk legs, sleeping pooches) without bumping into them too much. My only complaint is that watching the dogs interact with Alpha is so cute it’s sometimes unproductive, haha! I would highly recommend Alpha for home or office. It’s well worth the money, especially if you don’t have a lot of free time to spend vacuuming by hand. It’s also more quite than regular vacuums. I’ll definitely be getting another one when the time comes.

    Good Vacuum!

    This vacuum is very effective for the price. Keep in mind there's no scheduling function or app control, if that's what you're looking for, but the product does not advertise these functions, it's exactly what's described. I have pets, and considering my circumstances and what I'm expecting this vacuum to accomplish (picking up cat hair, feathers, etc lol), it's pretty impressive how well it does. For me, with three cats and five birds, usually I let it run through its vacuum cycle two or three times, but it picks up a majority of the mess on the first run and the second and third are for small bits of remaining mess. I will say that this vacuum gets a four (not a five) from me because I'm not impressed with the mop function. I could be using it wrong, but it doesn't seem particularly effective at all on the mop setting. If you're looking for an automated mop bot this may not be the right choice.

    I have been researching different robotic sweepers so some time now and finally decided on this one. I couldn’t be more impressed with “Alice.” She is absolutely amazing at cleaning our hardwood floors! I make sure to go around the house before I start her to make sure the dog toys are picked up and if any clothes or charging cords were left out. We have had no issues with her getting stuck and always finds her way back to the base. I’ve had Alice for a month now and I run her at least every other day. She saves me so much time and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a robotic sweeper, you won’t be disappointed! I also got Alice on sale during one of Best Buy’s sweeper sales, I believe I saved $91!

    I was hestitated to tried since this brand was new to me but it was very easy to install and did a good job. I have 2 cats so i have cat hair everywhere in my house. Also, very messy around the litter box. Every night when i got home from work, i turn on the vacuum and let it do the job by itself. Very neat and clean. It has the setting of vacuuming itself or remotely. Both work perfectly. I'm so glad to have it. It's been half year and I'm very satisfied. When it's almost out of battery, it automatically goes back to the charging station to get charge which is very cool feature. Best vacuum ever.

    AWESOME ROBOT VACUUM

    I spent a lot of hours reviewing robot vacuums and after a lot of reading, I ended up picking the iCleebo because of its features and battery life... We have a good size home and 99% of all the other robot vacuum brands have about 60 minutes of runtime. That just wouldn't cut it for our house. The iCleebo runtime is about 2 hours (120 minutes). THAT'S FREAKING AWESOME!!! It picks up great, it might miss sometimes, but that's because the garbage storage is full and I forgot to empty it. Or one of the kids legos got stuck in its sweepers. Other than that, this vacuum is LEGIT. I love it and I recommend it to anyone looking for their first robot vacuum... AND it has a wet mop feature add on. CASE CLOSE!!! JUST GO BUY YOURSELF ONE... I LOVE MINE!!!!!

    This thing is great! made our life much easier. It runs around all over the house following it's own calculated map of the room and cleans everywhere it can get to. Will pick up pet hair, grass and leafs accidentally brought from the outside and things of that nature. Love it! Just set the timer and forget. if you have pets however, one thing to watch out for is: If (god forbid) your pet for whatever reason decides to go in the house; you are in huge pile of trouble! The machine can not determine if the area is wet, or if it is about to run over something of suspicious consistency. It will run right through the mess and spread it all over the place. Off course this can be easily avoided if you just set the timer to run during the "Pet Safe" times, but I really wish it had wet floor detection as well.

    It cleans well, runs quiet, battery lasts around an hour and a half. We have run it everyday we have had it, about a month. Does get stuck from time to time, but usually because we leave something on the ground. It has been one of our most useful purchases, it start in the morning by the time we get home it's done with no effort from us. We have carpet, wood, and tile it works it on all. The kids enjoy it then it get stuck they check everyday when they get home to see if it's on its charging base, and if not it is a race to see who can find it first. We have a multi-level house so we move it every day or so to keep the whole house clean.

    Solid Vacuum

    Posted
    robotvacuumman

    We've had our iClebo for almost two months and are happy with our purchase. We have it set to run every morning after everyone leaves the house. Occasionally, the vacuum doesn't make it back to its base, maybe two time per week. Once in awhile it drives itself into a corner immediately after leaving the base and it struggles to navigate its way out. This is usually is remedied by a quick cleaning of the sensors and restarting the vacuum. It does a good job transitioning from carpet/rugs to hardwood. I prefer the random setting as it covers more ground than the pattern and does a better job cleaning. Overall, it does a good job. We have a three and one year old so there's never a shortage of things to get off of the floor.

    I purchased the iClebo as a birthday gift for my mom. She had seen some robot vacuums at her friends homes and had asked me for one. After doing some research and reading countless reviews online, I decided to get this model for her. Pros: best bang for your buck, easy to use and works great on wood floors. Cons: will occasionally get stuck and has trouble mapping large homes, battery lasts about an hour and change so it takes multiple charges to get the larger homes cleaned. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase and my mom is happy to have a help!

    My First Robot Vacuum

    I was holding out till I found a robot vacuum with decent reviews at a reasonable price. When Best Buy offered this unit as a Deal of the Day, I pulled the trigger. This unit performs as advertised and is great at picking up pet hair. It goes around obstacles and traverses uneven floors between rooms very well. It does get stuck and errors out on occasion, but that is my fault for not restricting it from places it should not go. I would have given it 5 stars, except for the fact that it is cumbersome and time-consuming to clean the pet hair off the main brush after every use. But to be fair, I have no idea if this is typical of all robot vacuums.

    More of a Sweeper Than a Vaccum

    Posted
    Tuttibumps

    At first I loved this machine. It was never the greatest, but it did sweep pretty good. I have had it for 4 months now and it has more and more problems. It stops every few minutes with a different code. I clear the code and the machine runs a few more minutes and stops again. I am almost at the end of my rope with all robot vacuums. This is my 2nd. Can't someone make one of these that works and lasts?

    This product is such a lifesaver. It works great irrespective of floor surface - carpet, ceramic, vinyl, laminate - and does a very decent job. Battery charge lasts well enough for its purpose, recharges very quickly, handles transitions between surfaces including height differences smoothly, drop sensor is accurate. Of late the ONLY areas I have been cleaning the manual old fashioned way are the stairs!! Much kudos to the company. I had to call one time (my own lack of understanding) and service was very pleasant and helpful.

    I don't really have anything to compare it to, but this robot vacuum works really well. Picks up pet hair and cleans well. Love the mop feature. Haven't really fully taken advantage of everything it can do yet, but hope to upgrade to excellent after a few months of use. No disappointment here. We researched a variety of brands and felt this particular vacuum was probably the best value. So far so good!

    Be careful if you plan to use this on hardwood floor. We were excited when we bought it but after using it we found out it's scratching our hardwood floor all over the place. Good luck if you try to contact manufacturer customer service. No response to phone calls or voicemail. Very disappointed with the purchase.

    I thought long and hard on this purchase. Have been wanting this type of floor vac for some time. I had a Roomba in the past but with the price I didn't think they were worth the money. When this item came up on a Best Buy daily email it got my attention. Since received I have put it to use and have been very pleased. Both hard floor and carpet are not a problem for this machine.

    We use it downstairs, where everything is hardwood or tile, and we also have two cats. I usually run it on max clean once or twice a week and it does a great job. I also like that the 2 error codes I’ve gotten told me exactly where the problem was (something large stuck in the main roller). Excellent purchase, would certainly buy it again.

    I think this is a great vacuum! It rarely gets stuck, except on cords, so I pick them up before I start it. It runs on bare floors, laminate, tile, and berber carpeting without any problems. It even goes under my kitchen table, and finds its way out. And it returns to the base when it needs a recharge. Love this!

    It took a few passes for the iClebo to figure out the area but now it is rolling a long picking up cat hair on a regular basis. It does not seem to be as effective as the previous Roomba Discovery I owned (doesn't collect as much cat fur) and the fur does collect in bin entrance and not the actual bin. It handles uneven and changing surfaces with ease.
