iRobot Roomba 671

The con­nected robot vac­uum cleaner

T3 India - - Tested -

Join­ing iRobot’s thin crew in In­dia is Roomba 671. The new Roomba robot vac­uum cleaner bor­rows the same de­sign as its pre­de­ces­sors but now adds fea­tures that are gen­er­ally a part of its top-end range.

The disk-shaped vac­uum clean­ing robot has an aes­thet­i­cally pleas­ing de­sign and is just 9.2 cm tall, en­abling the de­vice to clean sel­dom reached ar­eas like be­low-couch and un­der-bed re­gions. The Roomba 671 fea­tures a few but­tons on the top with an easy-to-open and clean the dust­bin door. It is ac­com­pa­nied with a home base cra­dle that acts as a charger for the vac­uum cleaner. The Roomba 671 works by sim­ply tap­ping the Clean but­ton or with the mo­bile app since the vac­uum cleaner also comes with built-in Wi-Fi. The vac­uum cleaner adopts a three-stage clean­ing sys­tem and in­tel­li­gently iden­ti­fies high-foot­fall ar­eas while the AeroVac fil­ter also helps pick up dirt be­side dust, mites, and al­ler­gens. The Roomba 671 worked fine in our brief use and while it proves ben­e­fi­cial when clean­ing un­der the fur­ni­ture, we no­ticed it takes some time for the cleaner to fig­ure out the exit path if some­thing blocks its way. How­ever, it smartly re­traces back its route if we com­mand it to re­turn to the home base. Speak­ing of com­mands, you can sched­ule Roomba 671 to clean every day or on a par­tic­u­lar day and time and also sup­ports com­mands via Ama­zon Alexa.

In terms of iRobot’s hi­er­ar­chy, Roomba 671 is the sec­ond cheap­est vac­uum cleaner you can pur­chase from them and de­spite its rel­a­tively af­ford­able price tag, the new Roomba cleans well and is packed with smart fea­tures.
