Shark ION vs. LG Hom-Bot: Comparison Details

Best Carpet to Wood Transition – Winner: LG Hom-Bot
3.0 stars

Based on ratings published by trusted online review sites as well as information from Shark ION's website, Shark ION performs average to better than average in terms of carpet to wood transition compared to other autonomous vacuum manufacturers.

Based on a review posted on tomsguide.com, Shark ION was rated as fairly average for carpet to wood transition relative to competing robotic vacuum brands. Check out the entire review here. Specifically, this reviewer pointed out the following:

The Shark Ion Robot 750 excels at avoiding cords and other stray obstacles. I was impressed by its ability to go around shoes, charging cables and even piles of clothing on the floor. It also did well with picking up clunky messes like spilled cereal; on vinyl, carpet and wood flooring, the Ion Robot managed to pick up nearly every errant Cheerio laid before it in our lab tests.

The online review website bestcordlessvacuumguide.com, gave Shark ION slightly below average ratings when it comes to carpet to wood transition versus other robot vacuum brands. See the full review on bestcordlessvacuumguide.com's site. Here's a brief quote from this review:

Technically it would be able to but there’s a risk of it not finding the charging station since it does not have any advanced software like the S.L.A.M. algorithm to help guide it around.

Based on a review posted on vacuumsguide.com, Shark ION was rated as fairly average for carpet to wood transition relative to competing robotic vacuum brands. Check out the entire review here. Here's a brief quote from this review:

That means the ION robots are more than capable of vacuuming hard floors such as wood, tiles, linoleum, marble and so on, as well as low-pile carpets. Its small dimensions and its low profile of only 2.6 inches allows it to clean under furniture and in small areas.

4.0 stars

Based on reviews posted on popular review sites as well as from LG Hom-Bot's website, LG Hom-Bot performs very well in terms of carpet to wood transition relative to other robot vacuum cleaner brands.

The review site trustedreviews.com gives LG Hom-Bot excellent ratings for carpet to wood transition in a review posted on its website. From this review:

The rugged wheels on the Square’s base offer traction on all surfaces, with the compact robot able to scuttle across polished wood, tile and carpeted floors with equal aplomb.

Based on a review posted on toptenreviews.com, LG Hom-Bot was rated as fairly average for carpet to wood transition relative to competing robotic vacuum brands. Check out the entire review here. From this review:

With scheduled cleaning, you control when you want the Home-Bot to clean. You can set the schedule to two, six or 12 hours prior to when you want it to operate. When it is finished, it announces that the scheduled job is complete. This vacuum operates on both hard surface flooring and carpeting. It does not have an automatic height, setting so it has some trouble transitioning from flat surfaces to carpeting. It also does not have boundary markers or virtual walls, so you will have to close doors to the rooms you don’t want it to enter.

Best Cleaning Power – Winner: LG Hom-Bot
3.0 stars

Based on ratings published by trusted online review sites as well as information from Shark ION's website, Shark ION performs average to better than average in terms of cleaning power compared to other autonomous vacuum manufacturers.

Based on a review posted on vacuumsguide.com, Shark ION was rated as fairly average for cleaning power relative to competing robotic vacuum brands. Check out the entire review here. From this review:

The R85 series (RV850, RV850BRN, RV850WV, RV851WV) promise 3x the suction power of the R75 series (RV700, RV700_N, RV720, RV720_N, RV725_N, RV750, RV750_N, RV750C, RV755). And since the battery remains unchanged, this is only possible conclusion is that Shark installed a new motor on their R85 models. I estimated the suction power of these 2 to be at 1000 Pa and 1400 Pa respectively.

Based on a review posted on digitaltrends.com, Shark ION was rated as fairly average for cleaning power relative to competing robotic vacuum brands. Check out the entire review here. Here's a brief quote from this review:

To help, two spinning side brushes (one more than some competitors) are equipped to pull dirt and dust into the robot’s path, which gobbles up debris with the support of a removable, self-cleaning brush roll.

This robot vacuum cleaner is far from a one trick pony. The LG Hom-Bot Square’s features list is blossoming with all manner of performance enhancing additions, including the tantalisingly named ‘Turbo’ button, which boosts suction power. It has seven automated Smart Cleaning modes.

Best Dust Bin Size – Tie

Based on ratings published by trusted online review sites as well as information from Shark ION's website, Shark ION performs average to better than average in terms of dust bin size compared to other autonomous vacuum manufacturers.

Based on a review posted on tomsguide.com, Shark ION was rated as fairly average for dust bin size relative to competing robotic vacuum brands. Check out the entire review here. Specifically, this reviewer pointed out the following:

The 380-mL dustbin also empties like the competition's; press a button to slide the bin out, and then open it up to dump the contents into the nearest trash. The dustbin is small compared to those of other robot vacuums, though, and I found that I often had to empty it out in the middle of cleaning.

Based on a review posted on bestcordlessvacuumguide.com, Shark ION was rated as fairly average for dust bin size relative to competing robotic vacuum brands. Check out the entire review here. From this review:

My guess would be around half a liter worth of dry dirt which is pretty good for a robot cleaner.

The Hom-Bot is a robot vacuum first and foremost—and a good one, at that. On average, it picked up about 12.6 grams of dirt per run—which puts it in the top 10 percent of robot vacuum cleaners we have tested. Over the course of the week, that's over 100 grams—comparable to what a full-sized vacuum can pick up in a single cleaning session.

The battery is a mediocre 14.4 V/ 2550 mAh Li-Ion. This helps the robot to work continuously for approximately 1 hour. After a complete cleaning session, it takes 3 hours to have the robot fully charged

The Hom-Bot is mostly quiet. There is a low hum and you can tell someone is vacuuming, but it's definitely not as loud as you probably expect. It's also got little lights on its side that light up darker areas so that its cameras can see things better when it's moving around.
