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.
The landscape for robotic floor cleaners changes almost daily. Sometimes it can be hard to keep up or even make a decision. You decide one day you want a robotic cleaner and when you go to make the purchase, there are five new models to choose from.
When ILIFE began making the V series the idea of a combo vacuum and mop cleaner wasn’t a new thing. The design is a simple one: half vacuum, half mopping head. The problem with most designs is that to do two different things; you lose the ability to do one well.
For a company that has only been in the robotic vacuum business for barely four years, the improvements from year to year are incredible. ILIFE released the V series and every iteration has improved upon the last. The ILIFE V5 is no different.
The robotic vacuum market today is chocked full of various models with various abilities and features. At the top of almost every unbiased list of the best models to choose from you will find a Roomba.
ILIFE has been producing robotic vacuums since 2015 and in that short time has become a household name. The name has even brought up comparisons to Neato and iRobot. While the ILIFE robots won’t compete with the Roomba 980 or the Neato D7 Connected, it does compare well with entry and mid-level tiered models.
