If you have been following my blog for any length of time chances are you have read a review of a Shark product previously. I love my Shark products. I was a huge fan of their products way before I was asked to review a product for them. I purchased several Shark and Ninja products prior to my association with the company.
In 42 years of marriage, prior to owning my first Shark, I purchased every major brand of vacuum cleaner from the very high end to what I call “disposable” models which can be purchased at any mass retailer for less than $100.00! For my hard-earned money nothing compares to a Shark vacuum cleaner.
The kind folks at Shark sent me the Shark Ion Robot RV750 vacuum cleaner to test and review.
I have reviewed two similar robotic vacuum cleaners by other brands in the past and wasn’t a big fan as they seem to lack suction power. The Shark Ion Robot is a much superior version hands down. The other two robotic vacuum cleaners were okay for picking up crumbs or something small but I didn’t find the other two brand’s suction power very effective.
The Shark Ion Robot did a great job on my carpet and hardwood floor and most importantly freed up time for me to do something else while it did the job of vacuuming for me. No babysitting the Shark Ion Robot, it moves from room to room adjusting from carpet to bare floors, doing an excellent job of picking up anything from coffee grinds to crushed cereal and more.
As with any new product I advise you to read the instructions to familiarize yourself with the features of your new Shark Ion Robot vacuum before you use it for the first time. There are tips for allowing your new Shark Ion Robot to work at maximum effectiveness.
Not home during the day and you want to vacuum your home – no problem your Shark Ion Robot has the ability to be controlled by a smart phone app for Apple or Android phones and voice control feature through Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. The apps can be found and downloaded at Google Play or the Apple app store. Further instructions for these applications can be found in your Shark Ion Robot instruction manual. I do not recommend you use this feature if you have pets unattended at home.
There is nothing to assemble you just plug the charging dock into a wall outlet, charge it for the recommended number of hours before your first use, place the Shark Ion Robot in the charging dock and you are ready to go.
I do advise you test your Shark Ion Robot a few times to familiarize yourself with, not only it’s features, but setting up barriers or “botboundaries” as they are referred to in the manual (which are included in the box) for places you do not wish the Shark Ion Robot to go. I have mine set up to block the vacuum from going under my couch as the couch slopes downward towards the back and the unit was getting stuck. Walk around the house with the Shark to see where it may get caught up with insufficient clearance (under your bed is one example) so that you can avoid the unit malfunctioning. This is an instance where you would want to set up the “botboundaries” so that the unit will instinctively know not to travel into that area.
Here is a short video I prepared to show you my new Shark Ion Robot and some of the features.
My husband discovered how to use the “zoom” button and he went crazy in this video LOL.
