The price tag for the ION ROBOT 750 is on par with the Roomba 690. Our review will touch on what advantages, if any, this robot vacuum has over its closest competitor.

Shark ION Robot 750 Cleaning Review

At only 2.6 inches high and 5.5 lbs. the Shark Ion Robot 750 is a full inch shorter than the Roomba 690. It can do the limbo under a lot of lower clearance furniture.

Underneath the hood is a large, self-cleaning roller brush designed to reduce tangles. It’s hard to compete with the Roomba’s bristle-free brushes when it comes to low maintenance. But the ION 750’s helix design does a better job at staying snag free than the average robot vacuum brush.

The Shark ION 750 vacuum isn’t too loud and with two spinning side brushes the robot vacuum is well equipped to lift and clean pet hair, dirt, and food particles. Compared to the Roomba 690 its cleaning performance is pretty even.

Reviewers on Amazon say that the Shark ION ROBOT 750 is a solid robot vacuum at a reasonable price. It works great on pet hair and maintenance is frustration free. It’s not without areas for improvement. One of those include the side brushes and the collision sensors which we’ll cover below.

The ION 750 uses HEPA filters that catch 99.7% of airborne particles, cleaning your air while cleaning the floor. Regular cycles of running this little bot are great for people with allergies and asthma. Emptying the dustbin never seems to get old and the process is as simple as pushing a button.

Shark ION Robot 750 Navigation Review

On top of the robot vacuum are physical buttons for Dock, Clean, and Spot modes. If you don’t feel like reaching for your phone you can just press one of these to get the Shark ION ROBOT 750 started or send it back to the base.

Spot mode is great for when you make a mess. You can just pick the robot vacuum up, set it over your spill, hit this button and it goes to work. For deeper carpets you would still need to grab the upright.

You won’t find any fancy tech words for this robot vacuum’s navigation. Collision sensors do a good job, and maybe too good, at avoiding obstacles. The ION 750 has a tendency to stop a little too far from walls and the side brushes don’t always have the length to reach the dust bunnies that like to live there.

Both the ION 750 and the Roomba 690 use semi-random patterns when cleaning so they do zig and zag over the same surface area. They both have similar run times at around an hour and do a decent job cleaning average size rooms with bare and low pile carpets. Struggles begin as the carpet height grows and neither robot vacuums are great on thicker carpets.

Shark Ion App

The Shark app is simple and user friendly. You can schedule and choose cleaning modes for each day of the week. You’ll also receive notifications and can read tips for performance and troubleshooting. A Wi-Fi connection is of course needed. Shark also has setups for Alexa and Google Assistant for voice control.

Finally, the Shark ION ROBOT 750 is pretty good at finding its way back to the charging dock. That is unless it has wandered into another area of your home. It will not resume cleaning once it recharges and will need to be manually started again.

Shark ION Robot 750 Summary

The Shark ION ROBOT 750 won’t disappoint when it comes to every day vacuuming. Its fairly quiet, has a low profile, and is easy to control and maintain. Like many things in life, the question really comes down to price. You can find it priced anywhere from $320 to $380 on any given day. The Roomba 690 by comparison is typically priced in the sub $350 range.

When it comes to comparisons, both are pretty evenly matched in cleaning, navigation, and controls. The Roomba is a little better at edging and its bristle-free brushes are easier to keep clear of hair. The Shark is quieter and has a lower profile.

The Shark vacuum comes with 9 feet of boundary tape for ares you don’t want cleaned while the Roomba comes with a Virtual Wall Barrier. Depending on what your particular needs or wants are we think you’ll be satisfied with either robot vacuum as long as you get it at a good price.
