This is the second Infinuvo Hovo I’ve received the other one is similar to the Infinuvo Hovo 650 and I use it almost daily. This one is surprisingly different and it left me with the decision of which one I liked more. 🙂
I have to first apologize for the choppiness of my video review, there was so much information that I wanted to include because I have more than one robot vacuum and I’ve learned what I like and what I don’t like and you’re only allowed 10 minute videos.
That being said here are the bullet points:
*This vacuum also has a trailing bar that holds a microfiber cloth to pick up the small fine dust that the vacuum might miss. The other one I noted has a wet trailing bar so it “mops” your hard surface floors as well as vacuums.
*This vacuum does carpet and hard surface, my other one did not. Not only does it do both but it seems to do both equally well.
*This vacuum’s remote is much bigger than the other model. I quickly lost the remote to my other one, I’m not as worried about that with this one. You will need (2) AAA batteries for the remote which are not included.
*The virtual blocker for this vacuum is far superior than the other one. My other one only went side by side and this blocker has the option to only go to the front or side by side or both! Not only that but it works very well. You will need (2) AA batteries for it which are not included, the other vacuum requires C batteries
*The bin on this vacuum is one of the largest I’ve seen on a robot vacuum. Because I am obsessed with my robot vacuums I have one on each floor. This is partly because I have allergies. The one I use in my bedroom (which is all carpet) is from another company and is no longer available but the bin on that one is maybe 1/2 the size as this one as is the bin on my other infinuvo.
*The brush to clean the bin is attached to the bin. This is genius. On my other vacuums I have to store the brush somewhere near the garbage, luckily I have places for them but I could see how they could easily be lost, this is a great solution.
*This vacuum is much quieter than my other one, especially when on carpet. You can actually barely hear this when it is on carpet.
*I love that this company puts the error codes on the bottom so that when there is an issue with it you don’t have to look for a manual, you just have to flip it over.
There are a few cons with this vacuum,
Sometimes it does have a hard time finding the charging base. I noticed this with my other infinuvo as well. When I filmed my review it had no issue finding the base but since using it sometimes it is hit and miss and it seems to be worse the closer the battery is to dead. This actually isn’t a huge deal to me because it is on my main floor so I can just guide it but it would be a pain if you didn’t notice until you went to run it.
The remote has to be pointed directly at the vacuum in order to work. You will notice in the video part of my review that I didn’t realize this at first so it looks like the remote isn’t working properly but it does.
If I had to choose between this vacuum and the other one that wet mops I would choose this one. Just the fact that it can get up onto my area rug and clean that as well as my hardwood and it picks up a ton! I typically have to use my cordless dyson on my area rug but not any more. You will see at the end of my video how much it picked up in one pass and it was truly disgusting. I had purposely not vacuumed in a couple of days but I was not expecting to see all of that in the bin. Not only that but it filled it up again before I had to charge it, I don’t even know where it found all of that dirt! If it wasn’t for the issue with it finding it’s base this would easily be 5 stars.
I am still trying to figure out exactly what the “Dark” mode is but I swear that you could use these things daily for a year and still not know everything they do. I’m being completely honest when I say they really don’t save me any time because I sit and watch them when they clean in utter amazement. 🙂
