Warranty and Support
Summary : This unit isn’t the cheapest, but it’ll eradicate the need for a cleaning crew. Seriously, it cleans to perfection, runs all by itself with no manual intervention, and on top of that, has the best support possible so you can continue using it for years down the line.
LG is known for its bulletproof products. They’re easier to operate, they do the job better, and they last for years down the line.
The Roboking VR6372LVM is no exception to this standard of quality. Here, LG isn’t trying to cut corners in any way, shape, or form – they’re just trying to deliver the best product possible.
This product certainly doesn’t come cheap – it’s right up there with the most expensive Roombas. However, we think the price is worth it – if we didn’t, we wouldn’t be writing a review on it.
Below, we’ll go through its heaps of features. You’ll be blown away by just how much it has going for it. At the end of our review, we’ll summarize everything and give you the current price, and you can then decide if it’s worth taking the leap on a quality product.
Let’s start with the bad…
…because there’s only really one downside to this product.
The Roboking VR6372LVM was originally meant to be used in Korea, and in Korea, the outlets are 220V, not 100V – 120V like they are in the US. If you want to use the unit, you’ll have to buy a power converter, which are around $5 to $10 on Amazon.
Because it was made in Korea, the manual is also in Korea. However, the unit is dead-simple to set up, and LG offers support in English. (Thank goodness.)
Now, if we turn this downside into an upside… Korea (and other Asian countries) often have two to three generations living under a single roof. There’s a lot of foot traffic, and because of that, there’s a lot of dirt. A substandard product just won’t cut it – as we said before, this is a robot vacuum cleaner that doesn’t try to cut any corners to save on price. It just does the job well.
Without further ado, let’s move onto the good.
Roboking VR6372LVM: The Good
Heavy Duty Brushes
Most robot vacuum cleaners have brushes, but if you actually inspect them, they’re borderline pathetic. They’re so small that they can’t handle the bigger messes on your floor, which means you have to clean them manually… which completely defeats the purpose of having a robot vacuum cleaner in the first place.
The brushes on the Roboking VR6372LVM are, for lack of a better word, intense. They’re big, and they’re incredibly powerful – you can let this unit loose on your worst messes (like the kids coming in after playing in the snow) and it’ll leave that area looking pristine.
Dual Eye Camera For Better Mapping
When you start any decent robot vacuum cleaner, you’ll think that something magical is happening. Without any input from you, it creates a map of your house, and then gets started on cleaning it.
The problem is that these “maps” aren’t always entirely accurate. This leads to certain parts of your floor looking dirty, while other ones look perfect. Overall, this makes your house look really, really weird, and in order to clean it fully, you have to intervene manually. Again, this defeats the purpose of a robot vacuum cleaner.
A “dual eye camera” is a fancy way of saying that the camera looks in two different directions to determine where it’s at. This results in a better mapping of your house, and also more precision around furniture legs and similar obstacles.
HEPA Filters For Precision
It’s unbelievable that some robot vacuum cleaners still aren’t using HEPA filters. A regular filter to a HEPA filter is like a brand-new rag over one that’s already covered with grime and filth. Sure, you’ll pick up some stuff with the dirty rag… but compared to the clean rag, there’s no competition.
The Roboking VR6372LVM does in fact have HEPA filters. Your house will be completely void of dust. Others will leave dust present, making your space look okay, but not great.
Really darn good support
Robots are complicated. There’s no other way to say it.
No matter how tech savvy you are, you might run into a problem with your vacuum. If the support can’t help you, then you’re stuck with a block of plastic that does nothing for you.
That’s never a risk you take when you deal with LG. Their support staff is incredibly good, and you’ll always be talking to someone who actually knows what he’s doing. (All of their staff members are trained for the product they give support on.)
Everything else you’d expect
We went over the features that sets it apart, but of course, the Roboking VR6372LVM has the basics that you’d expect from any decent robot vacuum.
- Auto recharge: if it gets low on battery, it’ll charge itself and resume the task once it’s done. It takes three hours to charge, and the run time is slightly over an hour and a half.
- Scheduling: you can set the unit to run at a certain time every day.
- Can get over rugs and doors: the unit can handle anything that’s a half inch or shorter.
- Untangles itself: if you leave out a power cord and it gets stuck on it, LG has included proprietary AI to get itself untangled, which means you don’t need to intervene.
Summary: Roboking VR6372LVM – a good buy?
It’s more of an investment than a gadget. If you have constant foot traffic in your place, then you have three options – either live in filth, spend money on a cleaning crew, or spend all of your time cleaning yourself.
If you’re on this page, we’re guessing that you don’t want to live in filth or spend all of your time cleaning. And hiring cleaning crews can get very expensive very quickly – heck, a single maid can cost upwards of $30 an hour.
This unit isn’t the cheapest, but it’ll eradicate the need for a cleaning crew. Seriously, it cleans to perfection, runs all by itself with no manual intervention, and on top of that, has the best support possible so you can continue using it for years down the line.
Get this one as an investment – if you’re looking for a cheaper model with somewhat similar features, we recommend the Roomba 880.
