Overall this is a great little robot. It has helped us reduce our requirement to vacuum from sometime once a day to once a week. Very Nice Bot!
Cleaning: For a device that simply drives across the carpet in a logical path it does a very good job. We now use our Dyson once a week for that deep clean and edges that the Navibot doesn’t do.
Cleaning rating: 3
Navigation: Navigation is logical and covers the floor quite well though if seems to be optimised for square rooms and layouts. This doesn’t cause any problems in out house until it runs in to something and gets our of alignment with the room. It also has a problem with the island bench in our kitchen and sometimes misses the space on one side of it. I think the use of a 360 degree laser scanner would resolve this issue.
Navigation rating: 4
Maintenance: Maintenance is easy especially seeing that it does most of it itself. When docked it empties the on board bin and in the process attempts to clean the brush. We found that all we have to do is clean the brush and under body with our Dyson once a week and this keeps it operating smoothly.
Maintenance rating: 4
Value for money: These things can always be better value for money but I don’t think this is ridiculously priced. My main reason to purchase it was to help my wife who has hurt her back and it has achieved the results we set out to obtain by getting it.
Value rating: good value
What would you change: Samsung should consider using a less dust attracting plastic for the body. A stronger suction and better edging would be nice. Better room mapping with the use of a IR laser on top of the unit would be a big benefit to the unit. Ability to program from a computer via the Internet would be great seeing how cheap Wifi chips are these days.

There’s almost no stopping this cleaning machine
When the unit encounters adoorsill, its Smooth Climbing Wheel enables outstanding leverage and allows smooth movement across thresholds, over cords-or over various obstacles on the floor-up to 1.5cm high.
It sweeps up an ample amount in its path
The NaviBot-S is designed to clean your floors in less time than previous Samsung models. It has a 200mm-wide brush that’s wider than on previous Samsung models — this helps to take on crumbs, pet hair, and dust with reduced sweeping paths. The expanded brush compared to the previous Samsung Navibot, along with the blade, results in a fast and helps to increase efficiency in cleaning performance.
Tailor its cleaning routine to suit your needs
Schedule your cleaning to maximise convenience and help to increase free time! Set the NaviBot S to vacuum when you’re at work, out shopping, or spending the afternoon at a café. Just enter the time and day — it’s that simple. You can program a daily or weekly schedule so you’ll know your home is getting cleaned even when you’re not there.
It quietly goes about its way
While the NaviBot S is vacuuming, you can chat on the phone, read a book or watch television —in the same room! It’s so quiet , you may find yourself looking up to see if it’s still on !
