  • The SmartClean 1605 automatically detects and adjusts for carpets and hard floors, and you can program it to clean on a schedule.

CONS

  • The SmartClean's brush and suction areas are significantly smaller and less effective than those of its higher-priced competitors

The Bissell SmartClean 1605 Robotic Vacuum cleans floors and carpets on a schedule that you set--whether or not you are at home. It's designed with a low profile to vacuum under furniture and includes spinning edge brushes to reach into corners. The vacuum returns to its plugged-in docking station as its rechargeable lithium-ion battery runs down. It detects edges to prevent falls down stairs and comes with an "invisible room" accessory that lets you designate a room you don't want it to clean.

While the Bissell SmartClean isn’t completely perfect, the vacuum works great on pet hair, dirt and has no trouble helping you cut back on regular vacuuming. It works itself automatically, and can be scheduled to vacuum while you’re out running errands, so the noise won’t be too big of a problem.
