The VR900 is no longer available. See our current ratings of the best robot vacuums.
The Samsung POWERbot VR9000 noticeably stands out when compared to the other vacuums we tested. It excelled in some categories, and definitely lagged in others. We found that the Samsung was by far the best when it came to cleaning carpet, and the runner-up behind the Neato Botvac Connected when it came to hard floors and pet hair. It did struggle substantially with room navigation — its larger, bulkier shape causing it to become trapped and require aid much more frequently than other models. The POWERbot was also the fastest of all the robots we tested. Essentially, you can think of the POWERBot VR9000 as the wild mustang of robot vacuums — thriving magnificently in the wide open spaces, but becomes sad and fares poorly when penned in areas that are too small.
