Miele Scout RX1 Review

 

With enough power to clean up heavy messes with little noise, the Miele Scout RX1 can clean up messes within a small area well. There are some shortcomings in its ability to stay within boundaries, but it has enough power to make your home look cleaner...

It is quiet enough to not be disturbing.

There is no virtual wall and only a short marker to keep the vacuum within boundaries.

The Miele Scout RX1 picks up messes thoroughly and quietly when it is not hampered by a lack of boundaries.

Miele Scout RX1 review

 

This is one robot vac that makes a Miele of keeping your floors clean

Looks pretty slick ; Simple setup ; Cheaper than the competition

No sense of direction ; Struggles with suction

A robot vacuum that’s not very good at moving (‘robot’) or cleaning (‘vacuum’). It is, on the other hand, stylish, quiet and somewhat cheaper than the Dyson alternative.

Miele Scout RX1

 

The Miele Scout RX1 may look like any other compact robotic cleaner, but behind the discreet design it is bristling with technology. It incorporates a raft of sensors, a camera and digital room mapping software to ensure it makes a clean sweep of your...

Good navigation ; Quiet and methodical ; Four modes and remote control ; Gentle on furniture ; Easy to clean

Average hard floor cleaning ; Side brush broke off ; Small bin capacity ; Expensive

Miele ups the robovac arms race with the new Scout RX1

 

Robot vacuums certainly are neat gadgets but aren't exactly known for efficiency. Appliance maker Miele hopes its new Scout RX1, shown off at IFA 2014, will change this reality. Boasting seven infrared sensors, a digital camera, and even a gyroscope,...

And with an ultra-premium price of $900, the Scout RX1 commands a steep cost of entry. For this much cash, the RX1 had better demonstrate significantly improved robotic vacuuming skills. The Miele Scout RX1 is currently available for sale globally.

Disappointing

 

It's a dust buster at best! Doesn't hoover. Will collect dust but leave anything else in its way. Excellent navigation but poor job. Disappointed and thought more of the brand. Save your money.
