I had an opportunity to compare and test two robot cleaners - Samsung POWERbot R7070 vs iRobot Roomba 960.
The main difference between these two models is their battery life - Roomba 960 can work for 75 minutes, while POWERbot R7070 can work for 90 minutes without returning to the recharging station. However, iRobot Roomba 960 needs 2 hours to recharge its batteries versus 3 hours that POWERbot R7070 needs. These robot cleaners have many cleaning modes so they can choose the best option to clean all kinds of surfaces perfectly.
Both models support the remote controlling feature. Moreover, both solutions have Wi-Fi modules. Both robot cleaners are protected well-enough so you will not damage them even if you drop something on a robot cleaner.
These two solutions can be controlled using your voice and you can also create a schedule to clean your home. However, there are differences - POWERbot R7070 has a display, while Roomba 960 does not have it. However, Roomba 960 has a virtual wall feature, but POWERbot R7070 does not have this function.
Samsung POWERbot R7070 has the suction power of 1000 pa while iRobot Roomba 960 is a bit weaker – 900 pa. However, iRobot Roomba 960 has a bigger dustbin – 750 ml, when POWERbot R7070 is featured with a 300 ml dustbin.
iRobot Roomba 960 covers a 1500 square feet area, while POWERbot R7070 can clean an area of 1000 square feet.
The Roomba 960 noise level is 61 dB versus 74 dB of Samsung POWERbot R7070.
That is where both models match – both support carpet cleaning and air filtration.
The iRobot Roomba 960 is better robot vacuum in this comparison. Check iRobot Roomba 960 price
