Star Wars fans are everywhere. If you or your kids dream at night of taking on the dark forces of the Storm Troopers, finally conquering the mighty Darth Vader and the Galactic Empire, Samsung has introduced a robotic vacuum cleaner to bring your fantasy to life.
The limited edition PowerBot Star Wars robot vacuum cleaner by Samsung seems, at first, to be another novelty item in a long line of Star Wars merchandised products. Many will really enjoy this. The smart little PowerBot even has sound effects from the Star Wars movies and will, no doubt, bring endless joy to fans of the legendary film series – both young and old.
The more discerning buyer may want to know if this is actually a robotic vacuum cleaner that’s worth buying. The Samsung PowerBot Star Wars robot vacuum cleaner is certainly not cheap. It goes without saying that most of us will want to know if this vacuum is going to get the job done. Is it actually worth spending our hard-earned cash on?
“Vacuum Your Space”
The guys at Samsung have done an amazing and very creative job designing this one of a kind robotic vacuum cleaner. You get to choose between two variants. There’s a black model, resembling Darth Vader. They’ve done an incredible job both in the visual effect of the design and Darth Vader’s unique voice along with the characteristic sarcasm that is very much a part of his persona. There’s also a white version, the Storm Trooper. Like the Darth Vader Bot, this one is also a very imaginative portrayal of these well-known characters. The sound effects also include the dramatic music that we all associate with the Star Wars movies. These robot vacuum cleaners certainly put the fun back into to household cleaning but, let’s face it, we’re going to want more than just this when buying a robotic vacuum cleaner. What else are you going to be getting when you buy the PowerBot Star Wars robotic vacuum cleaner?

Star Wars Robotic Vacuum Review
Personally, I don’t buy into movie hype. So I wouldn’t go out buy the Star Wars robotic vacuum cleaner based on the Darth Vader and Storm Trooper aspects of these products. I want to see how it stands up to other robot vacuum cleaners in this price range. I know there are millions of people who won’t agree with me on this. There’s a good reason why the Star Wars name is one of the most valuable trademarks in the world – it’s a multi-billion dollar business. If you’re one of these people, you may as well skip this review and buy it immediately. This is a limited edition product and is probably going to sell like hotcakes. So you’d better get it while you can. If you’re more interested in the performance of the machine, keep reading.
I have the utmost respect for the Samsung brand. They have proven over many years to not only provide us with innovative engineering but also high-quality products. I’m pleased to say that the PowerBot Star Wars robot vacuum cleaner lives up to the company’s reputation. There are many compelling reasons why a lot of people will consider this vacuum cleaner based on its technical abilities.
You’ve got the power to conquer the universe. The PowerBot has incredible suction – twenty times more than the previous generation Samsung robotic vacuum cleaners. One of the biggest benefits of having a robotic vacuum cleaner is their low-profile design which enables them to move under furniture, cleaning where conventional vacuum cleaners can’t. In this regard, the Samsung PowerBot matches up with the best in its class. It stands only 3.8-inches from the ground.
The Samsung PowerBot Star Wars vacuum is also packed with everything that modern technology has to offer. The FullView sensor 2.0 is one of the most advanced detection and navigation systems that you can get in a robot vacuum cleaner. It maps out the room and detects obstacles, calculating the most effective way to clean your home in the least amount of time. This means that it covers a large area faster than you could do it yourself. You’ll experience the least inconvenience and it accomplishes a lot with a single charge of the very powerful battery.
The most impressive feature, in my opinion, is the edge cleaning abilities of these vacuum cleaners. It has a flat front end, many robot vacuum cleaners are round at the front. Most of these machines use side brushes to clean up to your walls, but Samsung has taken this a step further. When the PowerBot gets to a wall, it has a mechanically operated flat brush that extends from the machine and literally scoops the dirt away from the wall and draws it into the roller brush.
It has the ability to adapt to every type of floor and the powerful roller brush has no problem dealing with hard floors as well as relatively thick plush carpets. It will also adjust the power to match the floor surface.
With a top end robot vacuum, we’ve come to expect the convenience of Wi-Fi connectivity and Samsung has not disappointed us here. You can program scheduled cleaning and do a whole lot of other stuff using your smartphone or tablet. Though I should point out that if you want the advantage of Wi-Fi, you’ll need to go directly to the commander in chief. The more expensive Darth Vader option has Wi-Fi whereas the Storm Trooper model doesn’t.
I can conclude by saying that the Samsung PowerBot Star Wars range of robot vacuum cleaners are certainly impressive. Both the Darth Vader and Storm Trooper models are up there with the best robotic vacuum cleaners on the market. I have no doubt that you’re probably paying a little extra for the Star Wars trademark. Then again, of all the Star Wars merchandising that one could buy, this one at least has a purpose and is very good at fulfilling it. If history is anything to go by, the PowerBot Star Wars robot vacuum cleaner may be an incredible investment. If you buy one these machines today and keep it in its box for a few years, there’s a good chance that it will increase in value over the years. That seems to be the way with limited edition Star Wars memorabilia.
