Dyson is one of the most well-known household appliances manufacturers in the world. This British company was established in 1991 and has since expanded to various parts of the world. It’s primarily known for its range of vacuum cleaners, but Dyson also designs and manufactures air purifiers, heaters, hand dryers, hair dryers, bladeless fans and lights, among others. It’s also entering the electric vehicle segment. Founder James Dyson developed over 5,000 prototypes of the first Dyson cyclonic vacuum between 1979 and 1984. Initially, he struggled to find a seller/distributor for the vacuum, but eventually, in 1991 he established Dyson.
Dyson has developed several highly successful upright and cordless vacuum cleaners, but it also designs and sells robot vacuums like the Dyson 360 Eye which we’ll be taking a look at today.
Dyson Robot Vacuum Reviews
Let’s take a closer look at Dyson’s 360 Eye robot vacuum.
The Dyson 360 Eye robot vacuum is based on the Dyson DC06 and was first launched in 2014. Dyson claims that the V2 digital motor in the 360 Eye delivers two times the suction power of any other robot vacuum in the market. This claim is based on the ASTM F558 Standard Test Method for Measuring Air Performance Characteristics of Vacuum Cleaners. The 360 Eye has both panoramic vision sensors and infrared distance sensors that enable it to clean systematically. This Dyson robot vacuum review will help you learn about the features, advantages and drawbacks on the 360 Eye.
Buy this powerful robot vacuum with top-notch navigation system by clicking below:
- It’s equipped with the proprietary Dyson V2 digital motor that delivers extra suction power
- This robot vacuum has Radial Root Cyclone technology that enables it to capture microscopic dust particles and allergens such as pollen and mold
- The name of this robot vacuum is indicative of its ability to view its surroundings in a 360-degree perspective, which allows it to clean more efficiently
- The Dyson Link app (which is available for both iOS and Android users) allows you to control and operate the Dyson 360 Eye from anywhere
- You can both schedule cleaning sessions and analyze the performance of the robot vacuum with the Dyson Link app
- It has a full-width brush bar that’s made up of carbon fiber filaments for more effective cleaning
- It also has two types of bristles, one each for hard floors and carpets
- The Dyson 360 Eye is equipped with tank tracks that ensure that speed of the robot vacuum remains consistent and that it remains on the course
- It enables the robot vacuum to navigate across different types of floors and helps to avoid any obstacles along its path, while it’s cleaning
- It’s compatible with Amazon Alexa, which will allow you to control the Dyson 360 Eye through voice commands given via Amazon Echo
- Dimensions of the 360 Eye are 9.4 inches x 9.1 inches x 4.7 inches
- The build quality of this robot vacuum is excellent. I handle a number of electronic devices on a regular basis and over the years I’ve learned that the build quality is essential, especially when you’re paying big bucks for a device
- It does an equally good job of cleaning hard floors and carpets
- You will face no problems in cleaning up pet hair. The only thing I noticed is that you will have to clean the brush on a regular basis to ensure it doesn’t get jammed by hair, strings, etc. The brush can be detached easily, so no issues there either
- The navigation system in this robot vacuum is in our view one of the best in the market. It roams around a room without any issues whatsoever
- The activity map provided in the app allows you to keep a track of where the Dyson 360 Eye has been cleaning, which will help you strategize and ensure the entire house is cleaned
- It has quite a tall design, which means it won’t be able to clean under low-lying couches and beds
- I faced a number of issues with the iOS app. It didn’t perform some of the tasks provided on the app and it crashed quite a few times as well. I haven’t tried the Android app, so can’t say how that fares in comparison
- The run time is a bit low at 45 minutes. At the end of this time it returns to the charging dock. So, if you keep the charging dock at a fixed spot all the time, the areas furthest from it will get very little attention. You will have to change the location of the dock to ensure that the entire house is cleaned equally efficiently
- I found that you need to be tech savvy to be able to operate this robot vacuum properly. So, those who aren’t tech savvy will have frustrating experiences, unless they make the effort to learn
While Dyson’s foray into the robot vacuum world is still recent and not an immediate hit, their effort already shows promise and I’m sure that they’ll heavily improve in the future – just like every other big brand before them did.
