Shark is one of the leading appliance manufacturers and has a reputation for building some of the best upright vacuum cleaners that money can buy. Not so long ago, Shark started producing robotic vacuum cleaners. This is a highly competitive market and, although Shark only recently started using robotic technology, they have risen to the challenge with the commitment to excellence that we’ve come to know from the brand.
The Shark ION Robot 750 has such amazing technology that it rivals the established robot vacuum cleaner leaders, like iRobot – we’ve all heard of the Roomba and many swear by the brand. Well, a lot of people have come to discover that the Shark ION Robot 750, not only matches many of the features of the top Roomba models, it’s also quite a lot cheaper than their top of the range Roomba 980.
In this review, I’m going to uncover the secret behind the Shark ION RV750 and see why it’s so popular.
When you start using the Shark ION RV750, one of the first things that you’ll notice is that’s really flat, it stands only 2.6-inches from the ground. This makes the nimble little Shark ION RV750 one of the best at getting in under furniture. The second remarkable feature is how silently it operates, you’ll hardly hear the Shark as it zooms around room – cleaning at an incredible pace.
Like most of the top robot vacuum cleaners, the Shark ION RV750 has fantastic sensors. When combined with its super-smart technology, these sensors not only prevent the Shark from bumping into obstacles or falling down stairs, they also aid it in doing a perfect job. The Shark ION RV750 will calculate the most effective cleaning path, this saves on time, allowing it to get the job done thoroughly in a very short time. By maximizing the efficiency of its cleaning path, it will also cover the greatest surface area using the least amount of battery – it will clean a very large area on a single charge. The Shark ION RV750 also does a great job of adapting to the type of floor that it’s cleaning. If it’s on a hardwood floor, the sensors will tell it to adjust the power to and brush action for this floor type. As it moves onto a carpet, it will automatically adjust its cleaning action to be the most effective at grinding out engrained dirt from deep in the carpet fibers. Side brushes make the Shark adept at cleaning up against your walls and baseboards.
The helix roller brush design with high-tensile bristles is perfect for cleaning up large debris from any type of floor. It’s also fantastic at picking up pet hair from both hard floors and carpets. You won’t find any hair, no matter how long or short, becoming tangled in the roller brush. Over time, even the best roller brushes will collect some amount and debris and need to be cleaned, the roller brush on the Shark ION RV750 is easy to remove and clean. The dust bin also clips out in an instant, making it just easy and very hygienic to empty.
The battery on your robotic vacuum is very important, this determines how much work it can accomplish before it needs to be recharged. While the battery itself is important, the motor also needs to be energy efficient and smart technology that makes the best use of the power will help a lot. All these factors combine to give the Shark a pretty impressive working time from the lithium-ion battery. You should get over an hour from a charge and the Shark ION will return to the docking station for recharging. There are batteries that will go for longer, but one of the plus factors with the Shark is that accomplishes a lot in a short time. The only robot vacuum that might beat the Shark when it comes to battery time and cleaning efficiency would be the Roomba 980, which is a much more expensive machine.
One feature, that you won’t find on most robotic vacuum cleaners, is the magnetic tape boundary that the Shark ION RV750 has. If there’s an area in your home that you want the Shark to avoid, like electric cables under your desk, you can cordon this area off with the magnetic tape and the Shark will work around that area.
Phone apps are the latest buzz when it comes to robotic vacuum cleaners and these are usually reserved for the most expensive high-end machines. The Shark ION RV750 has not been left behind in this department. It has an app that can be used with your smartphone or tablet. This app is voice-enabled and is compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant. With the App, you’re able to schedule cleaning and it keeps you updated with important information about the status of the machine. If it happens that the Shark gets stuck (which isn’t all that likely), the app will tell you immediately. You don’t need to be in close proximity to the Shark ION RV750 to know what’s going on.
It seems pretty clear to me why the Shark ION RV750 is taking the world by storm. It has the power, efficiency and advanced technology to give the most expensive robot vacuum cleaners a run for their money. It’s also very quiet and goes places where many others can’t, thanks to its low profile design. You get all of this at a much lower price than many of the high-end machines.
