Let the Samsung POWERbot Star Wars Edition put The Force to work in your home! The POWERbot delivers powerful long-term suction, and the ability to hear your favorite Star War’s reactions to manage button commands. It navigates your home with ease and cleans up every corner of your home.

Starting with the Limited Edition Star Wars Darth Vader features: It looks like Darth Vader, sounds like Darth Vader, and it’s lots of fun (switch to standard sounds or no sound, when you get tired of it. I schedule it with Samsung Connect, it doesn’t work with Samsung Home or SmartThings. I’m using it to augment my alarm clock by having it chase me around the bedroom in the morning. I’m growing to hate the Imperial March, and starting to think of Darth Vader as evil. Worth the big price difference over the standard PowerBot 7040 if you’re a dedicated fan, and want to show off to your friends.

POWERbot Star Wars Limited Edition – Stormtrooper

 

Comparing the PowerBot 7040 to an early model Red Roomba: it is quite different, not necessarily better than Roomba. The suction power gets up fine dust that sweeping doesn’t, that used to require mopping and scrubbing. It is just low enough to fit under most of my furniture. The extra width still allows it to barely get under most of my furniture. The edge scraper and flat front does get right into corners.

I like the idea of room mapping and an orderly pattern vs the random walk of Roomba. The PowerBot does miss some spots in a single pass, but repeat mode gets most of them eventually. It dawdles along the way when trying to return to base so much, even in a small apartment, that sometimes it cannot get there before power runs out, and turns itself off. Because it is not round like Roomba, and can have trouble backing up, it can wedge itself into tight spots trying to turn around, climb the walls and give up.

Dumping the dust bin after every run is easy. The filter is harder to wash and dry, so I try to leave that for once a week, if possible. It does not climb up onto rugs and mats as well as Roomba, but it is fairly good at being gentle when it bumps into delicate objects. It could use some light machine oil for squeaky wheels and gears, but it is much more quiet than the old Roomba. It’s not perfect, but the PowerBot 7040 may be the best option for some homes, and it should be good for many or most homes.

Now I own both Vader and Stormie, the only …

Now I own both Vader and Stormie, the only and I mean ONLY set back is it isn’t Wifi enabled. Now I did pay approx half ($250) of what I did with my Vader ($400). I see them normally sell for the same cost, I completely disagree with this, if you can get it for lower do it, I did the “Used” option. When it came it looked and felt new. I’m a huge star wars fan and they are definitely a must have for any Jedi or Sith out there.

Both worked great in my house!

As a die-hard Star Wars fan, these are a must have. I purchased Darth Vader model from Woot for $349 brand new. Just got an open box, like new Stormtrooper model at Amazon for $255. I put Darth Vader upstairs on hard wood floor and Stormtrooper downstairs on tiles to work. They performed very well. I really did not encounter any problem with both of them despite seeing some troubles reported here. I did notice Darth Vader did not go into every room upstairs sometimes as I can see the mapping in the Samsung SmartThings app. Other than that, they worked out perfectly for me. Both of them can be scheduled to clean at any given time.

I didn’t use it for a while and found it not charging or doing anything else. Obviously battery was completely dead. I called toll free number to SAMSUNG and was guided through in very efficient manner. The help technician was kind and courteous and helped me reset it within minutes. So I rate the product and service full 5 stars.

Good vacuu-bot but not very star-warsy other than the paint job.

Great little robo-vacuum with a very low profile so it can slip underneath furniture. Does not need to stupid little “barrier” flags around you house like earlier models did.
thanks for sharing...
