Both Mr. & Mrs. CKJ are pretty tied up with work recently and adding on with our 17 months old princess, we don’t really have much time and kinda exhausted to clean up the house. To sweep and mop a 1400 sqft x 2 storey house x weekly could be a very tiring job! (Other house chores is not added in yet) Too much to focus!!!
I did research for some times and with the typical “Value for money + Good specification” mentality, this robot vacuum came in place. Bought this ILife V7S from GearBest back in November while they are doing the 11.11 sales at the price US 147 (Original price approx. US 159). Price is exclusive of shipping fees which is about US 6.

The Results.This is what we really wanted to see. That’s the dust for 2nd floor living hall only. Video shared below will give you an idea the size of the living hall. Not even going into the rooms yet. Horrible!
In Conclusion, my 5 Biggest Satisfactions of ILife V7S :
1. Saving my time ( both Mr and Mrs CKJ are working profession)
2. Clean my house ( my floor is seriously clean, no joke!)
3. Lessen my workload ( Mr CKJ got other house chores to do in a weekly routine, wash toilet, wash car, laundry, cook for the princess and etc)
4. The robot is perfectly fit for a 1400 sqft house, doing it’s job from the front till the end of my house
5. Which is the most important. Made Mr & Mrs CKJ a happy couple and able to spend more time with the lil princess
Well, frankly speaking this machine do have some turn down which I agree but it shall not be an major issue. You gotta clear all the objects ( for example : long wire, floor map, higher object like stand fan,weighting machine and etc) before letting it run else it will get stuck.
Watch my Youtube channels :
Video show: Robot started to work, tested for drop avoidance, anti-collision, noticed the ILIFE does more of a crisscross pattern and alternates that with edge cleaning.
