When it comes to the robotic vacuum world, we are burdened with more choices than we can imagine. Some light up, some talk. The Ecovacs DEEBOT N79 is a budget-friendly, entry level vacuum with mid-level advancements and one of the most heavily reviewed robotic vacuums of all time.
It wasn’t enough for us to have a robotic vacuum. The world demanded more, so they created robotic mops. We wanted more. They combined the two which gave us combination robotic cleaners. They weren’t spectacular at either mopping or vacuuming. Until now.
ILIFE has continuously pushed out new models of their robotic cleaners since their inception in 2015. Each version slightly different, for better or worse, than the previous models. They have two major lines: A and V. The A series models are vacuum only robots where the V series are vacuum and mopping combination units.
Everyone is getting on the ILIFE bandwagon. It seems every time they release a new model there is a significant change. These changes, however, are not always improvements. Such is the case with the ILIFE V7S Pro.
There are over 100 different robot vacuums from over three dozen different manufacturers. If you are just starting to do your research to make a final purchase decision, how do you weed through all the options to find the best one for you?
Just over 20 years ago the first robotic vacuum hit the market and began finding its way into homes across America. That robot was a Roomba. Fast forward to today and we have seen dozens of models come and go. Some have stuck around for a while and others were barely worth a mention. The Roomba 890 has stuck around. Today, it meets the Roomba i7.
For the last 20 years, iRobot has dreamed of a specific design that brings everything they work for together. When asked, iRobot CEO, Colin Angle, said: “With the ability to learn, adapt to and remember a home’s floor plan, and the introduction of automatic dirt disposal, the iRobot Roomba i7+ represents the most advanced robotic vacuum ever built.”
When it comes to the top of the robot vacuum food chain, the Roomba 980 debuted in the top spot and remained there virtually unchallenged. Now, the Roomba i7 Plus (i7+) is trying to claim that position. Does it?
I will admit that I have been quite harsh on the previous ILIFE V series robots. Partially because they want to market a vacuum and mopping robot while removing the key components for vacuuming. However, I do like the company and I think they have great potential. This is proven with the ILIFE V7.
You have decided to take the plunge and purchase a robotic vacuum. It is a wise choice. These little guys go a long way in helping to maintain the cleanliness of your home. Then you start doing your research and learn you have about 200 options to choose from. Among those options are the Roomba 690 and the Roomba i7.
