Robot Vacuum Cleaner brand Redmond
Redmond Russian company known for its quite popular multivarka. That it produces since its foundation, since 2006 Later started producing a number of small kitchen appliances, making today the lion's share of the company's products. Production of robot vacuum cleaners established relatively recently, so only a few models were made available to users.
While Redmond is a good producer by the standards of the former Soviet Union, while at the same time it is an unfair competitor. During its short history has repeatedly got into scandals copying someone else's products. This applies to the appearance, performance, design solutions.
And the company has repeatedly been convicted of patent trolling, ie unfair ousting competitors from the market. What the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service fined, was a party to legal proceedings in other countries.
For several years, during which in Redmond is engaged in production of robotic vacuum cleaners on the market it has been put in all 3 models. They belong to the budget class and have all its advantages and disadvantages.
Place №1: the best in the line model RV-R100
Produced models belong to different generations, therefore, have different capabilities. In view of this a valid comparison does not turn out to accomplish. Although, if a person has a desire to buy a model of this particular brand, then it should be RV-R100.
So as soon as she has the best set of important characteristics of users, including and reliability. This is evidenced by the numerous reviews of the robot cleaner collected Redmond. Which are always an accurate indicator for the correct choice.
RV-R100 designed to clean all kinds of hard surfaces, as well as various carpet, but a pile thickness of 2 cm. And cleaning is available as dry, and the polisher mode, that is moist. At the bottom of the housing RV-R100 provides an opportunity to secure the microfiber nozzle that allows to perform wet cleaning, which increases the functionality and attractiveness of the robot.
The model is quite tolerable and the design will be appropriate in any environment. It used in the manufacture of body modern, fairly durable plastic, but only in one color - black with silver accents.
Functionality allow the robot cleaner to perform daily thorough cleaning of small and medium-sized apartments, houses, offices and other premises.
What the manufacturer provides 4 modes:
- Auto - in this case, the RV-R100 will carry out cleaning to completely discharge the battery or carry out the mission. And the trajectory is chosen independently, allowing for the rooms. Movement is performed sequentially, that is, subjected to cleaning the entire floor area, and repeated passages in one place will be excluded.
- Quick cleaning It suggests a higher rate of movement during operation. The user can install it by himself.
- Cleaning of limited space - if the room has areas where dirt accumulates regularly, for example, places of feeding pets, the vacuum cleaner can be programmed specifically for cleaning. At the same time the rest of the floor area of the model ignores.
- Cleaning corners - if the owner decides to take advantage of this program, the trajectory of the movement will be laid along the walls. That will help to remove the most inaccessible places.
Model equipped with an efficient navigation system, the main element of which is a laser range finder. With it, the scan is performed, followed by drawing up plan. What helps better and more economical to carry out cleaning.
RV-R100 sufficient equipped with sensors - incidence, drop height, other necessary. All of the above makes it possible to avoid obstacles, making cleaning more meaningful and, therefore, effective. Due to the improved navigation system and the charging station RV-R100 can function completely independently. And without disturbing the owners comfort. This contributes to the relatively quiet operation.
The presented robot cleaner equipped with a timer, and this allows the owner to be complicated cleaning schedule. And for the week ahead, and with the possibility of repetition of the desired operation of up to 3 times.
After performing any room cleaning programs or discharge RV-R100 battery is able to independently return to a stationary charging base, which is included in the package.
If necessary, it can be operated by remote control. After separation from the surface of the vacuum cleaner is its automatic power-off, that is responsible for the control system.
Pulley will help potential customers to get acquainted with the possibilities of RV-R100:
- Power consumption - 15 W;
- time - 100 minutes;
- Charging is performed for 4 chasa;
- the volume of the dust container - 300 ml;
- dust collector - cyclone;
- Filter - additionally used highly EPA filter belonging to class 11;
- noise - does not exceed 65 dB.
Listed information indicates that the opportunities in this unit is not the best, but it is quite acceptable. In addition, its navigation system, and a processor capable of providing effective cleaning without interruption, which is important. Even a good performance can not be given an opportunity to model RV-R100 become popular with users. The reason for this is one critical caveat - prohibitive costs.
So, the price of the Russian vacuum cleaner in 2017 It was in the area of 15 thousand. rubles. But now significantly more modest financial demands of even the world's top producers, never belonged to which the Russian Redmond.
For example, rather fresh, but demanded, iRobot Roomba 616 effectively performs cleaning for imposing 2.5 hours, it will cost only 8.5 thousand. rubles.
In addition, even at a higher power level, current models operate more quietly. A performance can not be considered the best, as additional cleaning effluent carries EPA filter.
He is a highly effective, but most HEPA filters are installed models today that are an order of magnitude better. Ie their ability to level up, but it is essential.
Location number 2: perfectly equipped RV-R400
Stated in Redmond characteristics indicate that their latest model is capable of much. Namely effectively eliminating contamination on a large area, which can reach impressive 120 square meters. It is performed and wet cleaning, as provided an opportunity to use the RV-R400 as a polisher.
Model RV-R400 has a large number of sensors to ensure the effective navigation. In addition, it has a rich set - it is composed of even quite expensive virtual wall, which is uncommon.
Few people indifferent and spectacular modern design, although the manufacturer provides only one body color - copper. On the front side of which liquid crystal display is placed.
Provide them with information is easy to read. Nearby mechanical buttons that allow you to program.
To enhance the functionality of used cleaning mode 4:
- Auto - in this case, the vacuum control system does everything herself. That is, chooses the path, the direction of movement, and the owner is not required to participate.
- Turbo - it allows you to clean faster, and the person asks only the speed and everything else a vacuum cleaner will perform on their own.
- Manual - if you have the desire, then the user will be able to direct the actions of RV-R400, using for this purpose the remote control or the buttons on the body.
- Local - can be programmed only cleaning of the room, for example, the most contaminated.
To simplify local cleaning procedure includes limiting movement of the magnetic zone in the delivery tape as well as a virtual wall - an infrared sensor, which signal prevents further advancement vacuum cleaner. For successful navigation uses a large number of sensors: orientation determining obstacles preventing the fall collision.
Both the robot cleaner of the Russian manufacturer is easy to maintain. Therefore, difficulties in removing the garbage container, filter, brush is not for washing, which makes the operation more pleasant.
Presence timer allows deferred cleaning, and create complex switching schedule.
- absorption capacity - up to 38 W;
- cleaning duration - 45 minutes;
- the volume of the dust container - 800 ml;
- noisiness - 72 dB.
The robot is equipped with a powerful battery that allows you to cope with cleaning the area declared by the manufacturer. A significant advantage is quite rich equipment, which includes everything you need, including a virtual wall not cheap, they do not all manufacturers.
The height of a robotic vacuum cleaner this model is slightly greater than 7 cm, allowing it to pass freely under the furniture at a sufficiently low legs.
Video presentation of useful news RV-R400:
At first glance, RV-R400 are compact dimensions, but the circular shape somewhat limits its functionality. Since in many cases devices with a clear round configuration is difficult to perfectly remove dust in the corners and around the plinth. In addition, the vacuum cleaner can be stuck and the owner will have time to react to his sound from time to time.
Although cleaner RV-R400 is equipped with a large number of sensors, modern processor and firmware, but still often occur all kinds of crashes. So it can go backwards, stopping for a while, did not respond to remote control commands.
This feature has taken into account most of the manufacturers and their products in the height does not exceed 6-9 cm, which is sufficient to penetrate the majority of the seats. For example, these parameters fit even obsolete RV-R100. Another disadvantage is sufficient noise. It does not go beyond common sense, but the performance of popular counterparts by 10-20 dB below that significantly increases the comfort of the people.
A weakest suddenly become the software - it is imperfect. Therefore, the RV-R400 often failures occur. So do not suffer from the lack of all instances, but the figure is much higher than average.
Buyers should pay attention to the fact that the weight of the model over 6 kg, which would be a significant load during transport. In addition, you need to know that almost all competitors easier to 2-3 kg.
The main thing is that the presence of these defects the buyer will have to significantly overpay. Since the average cost of this model in 2017 It was about 14.5 thousand in Russia. rubles. An order of magnitude more advanced analog, which has the same capabilities, will buy and pay a third of that amount. For example, this applies to the robot Kitfort KT-511, whose price does not exceed 5 thousand in a number of retail chains. rubles.
The most critical drawback of both models is their Redmond, without exaggeration, the obscene cost. Since for the same means people will be able to buy a more efficient and reliable robot from a top manufacturer.
Over 10 thousand. rubles will become the owner of one of the best models among the low-cost, which is Xrobot Helper. It is able to perform cleaning on a single charge 3 times longer than the RV-R400, which indicates a significantly higher efficiency, and noise will be 12 dB below.
And the quality of treatment is better, since more efficient use UV light that can kill many types of bacteria. That is a useful bonus.
Place number 3: "the good old» RV-R300
This vacuum cleaner closes rating Redmond products, although it is different sufficient reliability, productivity, decent design and is able to cope with the cleaning of mid-sized housing. The reason is that it is a bit outdated, and simply can not compete with the newer RV-R100 / 400.
Thus, the navigation system can not create the map of the premises, so the movement of the robot when the cleaning chaotic. As a result, it can pass in one place many times, that does not add to the efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
With the technical possibilities klinigovogo mini unit will help to understand the video:
RV-R300 are durable, easy to care for, attractive design and will help cope with the cleaning. But this cost-effective or not be able to call the procedure, as well as to name the most functional robot. He's just too old for this.
The situation is exacerbated by openly thin batteries. Although they allow the robot to operate for an hour, and sometimes more, but during this time will be cleared only 40-70 square meters. For example, for 45 minutes more modern RV-R400 purify up to 120 square meters.
In addition, this model is relatively noisy. At identical with RV-R100 power emit sounds louder than 5 dB and 70 dB is achieved. Although it should be understood that the noise uncritical.
For example, RV-R300 will not disturb the owners comfort when watching TV, but is openly interfere during the holidays. Especially considering the fact that the old navigation system does not allow to avoid jams, after which will be heard loud signal for help.
At first glance it may seem that an important advantage of the model is three hundredth of the cost, since it is almost two times lower than that of other members of Redmond.
Reviews owners Manufacturer
All models comply with the specs Redmond. This is confirmed by the majority of users. In addition, they are reliable, in particular this applies to RV-R100 / 300.
So most people are satisfied with the cleaning quality, functionality. Ie robots Redmond are fully capable to maintain the cleanliness of the apartment and to do so without breaking comfort. This is true even outdated RV-R300.
But you can find reviews and user, who realized that their models are all good, but if they do not compare to peers.
Many of which they lose in price, as well as a number of other characteristics, such as a power which provides greater cleaning efficacy. In a number of cases and the worse the quality of filtration and efficiency is much lower.
With the newest RV-R400 there are problems, but, as mentioned, they are the result of policy failures rather than design flaws. But complaints due to this feature a lot. Therefore, the purchase of such a model similar to the lottery, but with a high proportion of what are lucky buyer.
And the problem can occur at any time and also unexpectedly keep aloof. But in many cases, users had to change the vacuum cleaner.
