Sense Navigation?
I bought R87 because it supposed to be superior technology then ION 750 (my previous robot). This is working without any sense navigation, it goes without any sense around bouncing walls and everything. Is there a switch to activate the sense navigation? It’s very disappointing observe a dumb robot bouncing around.
    Efficient & Handy
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was thoroughly impressed with the Shark ION Robot Vacuum R87. For context, most of my house has hardwood or tile flooring and I have two dogs who shed quite a bit of fur. It is always a hassle to get rid of the pet dander as they shed so much it's truly a daily task. Using the robot vacuum is so easy as they provide and abundance of clear direction and the app is extremely user-friendly and straight-forward. As someone who has never used a robot vacuum before, I like how it enabled you to multi-task and was just as efficient as any other standard vacuum. The robot is pretty durable and had little-to-no difficulty maneuvering over small carpets or uneven flooring. It was also pretty fun to be able to turn it on with your smartphone and schedule times for it to clean even when you're not home. As for whether the robot is compatible, per se, with pets I would say it is mildly so. At first, my dogs were taken aback and defensive about the robot's presence, however, with time they got used to it but most certainly are still not fond of it. I have provided a picture for those curious as to how much potential pet fur the robot can pickup as well as just show it's overall capacity. As you can see the robot's suction is pretty powerful and it has quite a lot of space. Important to note, is that it is fairly quiet even though it also has an in-app quiet mode. As for my thoughts on the robot vacuum as a whole, I would say that while it worked really well on my hardwood floors I can see this working amazing on carpeted flooring as it would really get in the nooks and pull out the fur and debris our naked eye doesn't notice. I would also say that this robot lends itself to more spacious areas so if you have a pretty tight accommodation this particular model may not be for you. The key for understanding the robot is that it is not meant to compete with a standard vacuum but rather a cleaning companion/helper that allows you to engage in other activities while also maintaining a cleaner environment. I would recommend this for people that are busy, those who don't like the loudness of traditional vacuums, and people who have pets (especially, those who have carpeted floors).

      A must for any busy mom, or pet parent!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The shark ion robot vacuum was packaged nicely. All items were secure inside the box. The instructions are printed largely on a piece of cardboard. Getting started was very simple. All I had to do was plug in the docking station, snap the side brushes into the bottom, then turn the power switch on and place the robot on its dock. It took about 3 hours to charge. Make sure you do the normal straightening up you would do before vacuuming, like picking up toys or moving cables out of the way. You can use the included strips to create boundaries for your robot. Lastly, install the app on your phone and your good to go. Make sure you do this from home for the first time because you need to link your robot to your WiFi. I found the app very user friendly and easy to use. Once my shark ion was cleaning, the robot shifted easily between my carpeted areas, hardwood flooring, and tiles. It did a better job vacuuming than my husband! It had been almost 2 weeks since I had vacuumed prior to using this. I probably should have done a quick vacuuming before sending my shark on it’s maiden voyage. The dust bin did need to be emptied once during the cleaning process but between my dog and my 7 year old it wasn’t surprising. Now it only needs to be emptied in between cleanings. You might want to empty it directly over a trash can. I find it nearly impossible not to spill it when the bin is almost full. I am usually home when I set this up to clean because it seems to get stuck occasionally. If you have the ability to be home with it, I would recommend it. Otherwise you run the risk of it getting stuck somewhere and draining the battery. It’s not that big of a deal though. Overall, this has made my life easier! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a basic robot vacuum.

        Shark ION Robot Vacuum
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have so many shark appliances in my home and this Shark ION Robot Vacuum is a welcome addition. I love this vacuum. I can’t believe that I can just sit on my couch and let it do it’s thing. And oh does it do it well. It has good suction and picks up stuff that I couldn’t see. I use Alexa to order it around and will get the Shark app to see how that works out. This vacuum amazing just like their other vacuums. I own 2 others. This robot vacuum has that wonderful auto sense navigation to avoid obstacles and the multi surface brushroll captures dirt and pet hair from hard to reach places. It has dual side brushes that cleans edges and corners. The XL dust bin is great, I don’t have to empty debris constantly. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in giving a robot vacuum a try.

          I personally love this vacuum
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I absolutely love this shark ion, it gets up all the dog hair on my floor with no problems at all. I run this vacuum daily to keep up with the fact I have two dogs that sheds pretty badly sometimes. And I figured running it daily would help keep my floor super clean which it ad. I love that I can set up a schedule if I wanted to or I can just log on the app and tell it to start. My only down fall is that since my house is like 1600 sq ft and oddly shaped that sometimes it doesn’t get all the floors I want it to get before it gets super low on battery which. I can easy fix that by getting another charging dock for another room so it can charge if I need it to when it gets low and then start it back up which would be easy since I can control everything from the app. I like the app tells you the battery percentage. When I first got this I had already swept the floor and mopped it so when I used this the day it came in I was shocked with the dirt I still had on the floor, which I will include pictures. This is my new favorite vacuum. This shark was very easy to setup and use that anyone can do it with no problems. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in giving a robot vacuum a try.

            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This robot vacuum is great. My floors have never been cleaner. I can do other things around the house while my floors get vacuumed. Boundary strips are included with the device but I have not had to use them. I simply press the “clean” button on my Shark and let it do its thing. It has 2 settings: regular and max clean. Once I’ve decided that my floors are done, I press the “dock” button and the vacuum finds its way back to the charger. I have not used it on my carpet yet, only the hardwood floor and tile. It maneuvers easily across the rugs I have though. The vacuum picks up a lot and it’s very simple to empty the dirt canister. I’m very happy with this product and I would recommend it to others.

              Works great, but some user frustrations
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] There is a contemporary comedian who has a take about people being irritated by flying. The bit is about how flying is a modern miracle and people are always irritated by the perceived minor inconveniences it causes. That's a pretty good analogy to my experience with the Shark Ion R87. It's a wonderful tool that creates some small frustrations. All of my issues are user based problems and not related to manufacturer of the robot. Our house is a single story ranch-style home built in the 1950s. It's seen its fair share of additions and now has a long foot print, with some nooks and crannies. Over the past 3 weeks the R87 has performed like a champ when it comes to cleaning up dust, pet hair and infant food debris. Our R87 (named Alfred) is scheduled to run when we're not at home. Inevitably it gets to the farthest point away from the dock and gets stuck. It's failed at returning to the dock on every scheduled cleaning. I track it down when I return home and place it near the dock for it to return and recharge. Shark has provided a solution for this issue. There is a low profile bumper system that barricades the robot from going places it shouldn’t. My young children like to play with the barricade strip and so it very quickly became a frustration to have to pick up and move every time I wanted to use the device. The user (me) is too lazy to properly prepare the home for the device. I expect that I’m not the only person who will have this experience. You should be aware of this issue. Pros - Vacuums all surfaces, very well. Tile, wood, carpet, and rugs are all cleared and appear to be covered well. - It’s quiet and doesn’t scare our pet. - It picks up dog hair like a champ. (We have a 65 pound black lab that sheds. Even after a manual cleaning the R87 picks up dust and hair balls we missed.) - It’s battery life seems to be perfect for the task at hand. - It handles minor changes in elevation well, include low objects like a scale on the bathroom floor. - The cleaning tray is easy to remove and access. It’s also easy to see what’s been picked up by the R87, because there is not a liner. That's going to save us a lost lego or doll accessory at some point. - There are many helpful how to videos out there for this line of product. - My oldest child insists it’s powerful enough to let a cat ride it, but we haven’t tried to do that yet. Don’t take my word for it. ;) Cons - R87 struggles to return to the dock when it gets to far from home. - You have to put down bumpers down or close a door to keep it from entering undesired spaces. (I know, I know, I know, I’m being lazy.) - It will get hung up on cords and loose rugs. So, some pre- cleaning and organizing is necessary. If you were using a manual vacuum you’d have to do the same. - The docking station requires a decent amount of clear space around it to properly operate. For us the only option was beneath our master bathroom vanity. I suspect that some smaller homes may find this clear space to be a bit of a premium. Overall I want to be clear that Shark has provided solutions to my issues. They provide helpful directions in print and in video format. I’m not rating it a full 5 stars because of my own perceived inconveniences.

                  Love this vacuum
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this vacuum a couple weeks ago and I am in love. This thing is amazing. I love that I can set it on the app on my phone and just let it go for 30 minutes and my floors are clean and then when its done it will return to its charging station by itself. It picked up so much dirt I was suprised when I went to empty it out. I have both hardwood and carpet in my house and it cleans both of them really well.
                    Awesome robotic vacuum!!!
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When I received this Shark robotic vacuum cleaner I was extremely impressed by the quality and how great it works. This vacuum cleaner definitely wowed me from the very start when I switched it on "clean" mode it went about doing it's cleaning duties all by itself. In my personal opinion this is one totally amazing vacuum cleaner product and it does an excellent job picking up dust, dirt, pet hair etc. I would so highly recommend this robotic vacuum cleaner to anyone who's searching for a very high quality vacuum cleaner that gets the job done everytime whether it's put on by the app or just clicking the button on it!!!
