Finally, a Roomba Alternative: Samsung's Stealth

Finally, a Roomba Alternative: Samsung's Stealth

Were you thinking about getting a Roomba but got discouraged by some people's disappointment with it. Or, have you been let down by the brand iRobot, but still love the convenience of a robotic vacuum?

Samsung has finally premiered a Roomba alternative, the Stealth vacuum, which looks disarmingly similar to the Roomba (save for those swishy arms coming out of it, which could be a pet attractor), Akihabara News reports.

If Samsung's version can improve upon Roomba's concept — a robotic vacuum that cleans on its own — but say, improve functionality a bit and lower the price then I think it could be a great competitor. No news yet about how much the Stealth will cost or how it measures up to its predecessor, but I've got a particularly dirty hardwood floor that would be willing to test it out.

I love Roomba, and it really isn't too bad if you buy from HSN on flexpay. They have lots of coupon codes, like 10% or more. Just google HSN coupons and you'll find them. But this is an interesting alternative to Roomba.

Hey geek, who has a Roomba and doesnt like it? I love mine too tdamji! :) But then again I have hard wood floors throughout. Maybe that helps.

Geek - I have a Roomba and LOVE it! i have had it for months now and it cleans really well. i think it is lame that Samsung's version looks just about the same. I mean, can't they at least change the color? I got my Roomba on sale for $100 off, so it is even more worth it for me. I use it everyday in a different room and our place always feels clean.

This is exciting! I hate to vacuum, so the idea of a robotic vacuum was very appealing to me. However, my ex works for iRobot, so I won't buy their products on principle (I know it's a bit juvenile, but he was a real jerk). Anyway, I'm excited to see how Samsung's version turns out. :)
