Cordless stick vacuums are all the rage these days. Companies are focusing heavily on them because of their strong suction, versatile accessories, and ability to fit into tight nooks and crannies. The Samsung Jet 90 Complete Cordless Stick Vacuum takes home air quality more seriously by offering all those basic qualities with a clean station that disposes of all the debris – so dust and dust after each cleaning. Allergens are not released back into the air. Do you really need an automatic disposal system for your vacuum? let’s find out.
The Lightweight Contender Packs a Punch
Compared to other stick vacuums I’ve reviewed, the Samsung Jet 90 Complete Cordless Stick Vacuum is one of the leaner-looking options out there. It’s certainly lighter and not as heavy, which is always a good thing, but I wonder how trimmer it looks compared to the mighty Dyson V11 Torque Drive. Weighing in at 6.17 pounds, it can be easily handled for all types of cleaning.
When cleaning floors and carpets, I like how the Turbo Action brush can be extended to accommodate all individuals—whether they are tall or short, it can be precisely adjusted. With 200 watts of suction power, the Jet 90 does an excellent job of capturing debris and dust trapped deep in carpets. I was impressed with the amount of dust particles it was able to capture with its 5-layer HEPA filtration system, but you’ll want to set its suction power to maximum for optimal results. Even though it is capable of pulling hair, I did find some minor tangles with the Turbo Action brush.
It has enough punch to suck deeply embedded particles out of carpets.
For hardwood and tiles, the included soft brush has a gentle finish that won’t scratch the floor. It’s also particularly practical for lifting kitty litter off the floor, as it does a good job of holding the litter in place as the brush moves over it.
It may sound bizarre, but the Samsung Jet 90 Complete Cordless Stick Vacuum’s 0.8-liter dustbin is bigger than its rivals – the Dyson V11 Torque Drive and LG CordZero A9 have 0.75L and 0.39L dustbins, respectively.
Overall, it is an excellent all-around performer that can tackle anything. Sure, its suction isn’t as strong as the Dyson V11 Torque Drive, but it has enough punch to suck deeply embedded particles out of carpets.
Ingeniously Designed Accessories
Samsung includes an assortment of accessories with the Jet 90, including a turbo action brush, soft brush, crevice tool, brush tool, and a combination tool that’s ideal for furniture. A level of ingenuity is evident in the design of these accessories as some of them can be expressed beyond their default actions. For example, you can get a little more detail with the crevice tool – so that even more suction is applied.
What’s even better is that the package also includes a charging base station. We’re seeing more and more cordless stick vacuums offering this, but it’s made better here because it also has some accessories. There’s room to hang only two accessories off the base station, though, except for three to be placed elsewhere (you can obviously keep one of the brushes attached to the vacuum).
Once cradle in place, it will recharge the 2850 mA battery. That battery is rated for 60 minutes with a full charge, which is about what I’ve seen when using a vacuum. However, it takes 3.5 hours to recharge. There’s actually another dock that can charge a spare battery, but you’ll have to buy one separately. $150.
Do you really need an auto-disposal system?
Auto-disposal systems are increasingly common among robotic vacuums. It just makes sense that they are autonomous and clean in their own right, which is good for us because the whole cleaning process means very little to zero interaction with us humans. Now, it looks like the trend may be coming to cordless vacs as well.
The Samsung Jet 90 is the first cordless vacuum I’ve tested to offer an optional automatic disposal system, the Samsung Clean Station. It could be mistaken for a charging base of some sort, but it has a 5-layer HEPA filtration system that sucks up the contents of the Jet 90’s trash in such a way that it prevents dirt and debris from making its way back into the house. It can be difficult to empty the trash can on top of the trash can.
However, with the Samsung Clean Station, you simply remove the trash from the vacuum and put it in the compartment—and with the push of a button, it sucks up the contents. Its as simple as that.
However, is it really necessary? I honestly don’t think so, especially considering it would set you back another $199 to pick up the Samsung Clean Station. You can be more careful about emptying the vacuum’s trash can. But for those especially or those more sensitive to dust, it’s an option to consider.
The Samsung Jet 90 Complete Cordless Stick Vacuum is an excellent model that gets the marks it needs in making it an effective cleaning tool for the home. It’s priced at $500, but it’s actually still less than the comparable Dyson V11 Torque Drive ($600) and the LG CordZero A9 ($550). By itself, you get a solid cordless vacuum that’s easy to maneuver, removes debris, and comes with intelligently designed accessories and a base station.
How long will it last?
It’s constructed primarily from tough plastic, which contributes to its lightweight feel. It feels well built and solid, so it should last a long time. Samsung offers a 1 year limited warranty Which covers parts and labor caused by defects.
Is there a better option?
If suction power is your priority, the Dyson V11 Torque Drive actually does a better job of deep cleaning on carpets—plus, the brush isn’t prone to tangling hair. You’ll pay more, but its suction performance is hard to beat. Alternatively, the LG CordZero A9 offers something similar with its package, while also throwing in an extra battery to give users more cleaning time.
should you buy it?
Yes, you will be amazed by the fine dust particles it is able to suck up and contain.
