A good vacuum is a valuable tool to have at home, and while there are many affordable options, they are often bulky, ergonomically difficult to handle, or not powerful enough to do. very good job. Fortunately for those on a higher budget, the burgeoning premium segment, with the recent launch of brands such as Samsung and Philips, creates strong competition for Dyson, one of the largest companies in the world. leading in the field of cordless vacuum cleaners in the world.
Samsung recently launched Jet series of the premium cordless vacuum cleaner, priced from Rs. 32,500 onwards in India. The product I am reviewing here is Rs. 49,990 Jet 90 Complete, the most advanced and powerful product in its lineup. Going against opponents including Dyson V12 Detect Slim, is the Samsung Jet 90 Complete the best premium cordless vacuum you can buy in India right now? Find out in this review.
Samsung Jet 90 Perfect in design and usage
While competing products tend to be a bit large, colorful, and rough in appearance, Samsung has taken a more sophisticated and discreet approach to the design of the Jet 90 Complete vacuum cleaner. Available in a single silver color option, the Jet 90 uses a cyclone-based suction system with nine cyclones generating suction for the vacuum function.
Interestingly, the entire cyclone system and air filter are housed in a 0.8L dustbin that can be removed and rinsed with water to keep the Samsung Jet 90 Complete clean. The engine and its vents are located directly behind the trash can fixator, and the air intake is below the trash can. This arrangement creates a slightly different and odd path for the airflow, but this doesn’t hinder the Jet 90’s capabilities in any way. The air filter is said to capture 99.999% of dust particles and allergens that are 0.5 microns or larger.
The handle of the Samsung Jet 90 Complete is at the back, but the weight of the device itself is balanced against the handle and makes the vacuum cleaner feel a bit heavy in the hand, especially when cleaning the top surfaces. . It becomes a bit easier to hold when attaching the hose and mop head as the head rests on the ground and takes some weight off the handle, but it still feels a bit unwieldy. This means that it can be a bit annoying to have to keep cleaning for so long.
At the bottom is a slot for the battery, which can be clipped into place and can be removed with a quick release button. Only one battery is included with the Samsung Jet 90 Complete, but you can purchase an additional battery separately to extend runtime, if needed. Helpfully, the charging station can charge a second battery simultaneously, and as mentioned, swapping batteries is easy and quick.
The top of the handle has the control buttons of the Samsung Jet 90 Complete vacuum cleaner. This includes a power button and two buttons for adjusting suction power, along with a small set of bright indicator lights to show the active power mode and other warnings such as blockage at the roller end or if there is a need. need to change the air filter. There are three power modes and a fourth ‘wet’ mode; the latter requires a wet wipe attachment, which is not included in the Jet 90 Complete in India or available for official purchase.
Cleaning the dustbin on the Samsung Jet 90 Complete is a bit more complicated than competing products, as even cleaning the trash can requires complete removal from the vacuum cleaner and opening the latch. This tends to take a little longer than necessary, and I usually wait until the bin is almost full before emptying it if I try. However, this allows for a more thorough cleaning of both the dustbin and the vacuum cleaner’s cyclone generator, both of which can be rinsed with water if needed.
Samsung Jet 90 Complete accessories and accessories
While competing cordless vacuums come with the usual charging adapters and plugs or a wall mount, the Samsung Jet 90 Complete goes one step further and includes the impressive ‘Z Station’ charging dock. . This is a complex apparatus designed to make charging and storing the Jet 90 vacuum cleaner and its accessories very easy. As mentioned, you can also charge the second battery simultaneously with the main battery attached to the vacuum cleaner.
The Z Station’s stand is quite heavy, helps keep it stable when plugged in to the Samsung Jet 90 Complete, and has a slot for charging a second battery. The adapter and power cable connect to the base. If for some reason you do not want to set up the charger in the form of a tower, you can remove the battery from the vacuum cleaner and charge it on the base. The main stand charges the vacuum as soon as you put it on, and there are sockets to clip onto smaller accessories for easy access.
Included with the Samsung Jet 90 Complete vacuum cleaner are a turbo-active brush for stubborn floor stains, a soft brush for regular floor cleaning, a mini motor tool for the top surfaces, tools combinations and crevices for specific cleaning requirements and a versatile tool to angle accessories to reach hard-to-reach places.
The previous three accessories all have a motor and draw power for the rotating broom from the vacuum cleaner itself. The soft action brush and turbo action brush can also be opened for convenient cleaning.
There is also a telescopically adjustable extension tube, with four possible length points ranging from 930mm to 1,140mm. This helps set a comfortable length for floor cleaning, easy access to a height, and convenient storage of the unit when not in use. The shortest length only extends to the floor when the Jet 90 is mounted on the Z Station, so you can keep the piping and one of the attached accessories secure even while charging.
Samsung Jet 90 Perfecting Performance and Battery Life
The Samsung Jet 90 Complete vacuum cleaner is very similar to the competition from Dyson, including suction power. The unit has a rated maximum suction power of 200W with a system of nine cyclones to generate suction, making it one of the most powerful vacuums in its category and this has shown in daily usage. day.
Of course, suction isn’t everything, and effective cleaning also requires the use of appropriate cleaning heads to effectively attract dirt from different surfaces. For hard floors, a soft-action brush with fine rollers is adequate in most situations, although I have sometimes found a turbo-active brush to work better, especially on carpets and when it’s thick. separate mess.
Mini motorized tools are used on soft surfaces for daily cleaning and often do not have an extension hose, such as on sofas or beds. While the top does have some versatility, I found it to be ineffective at picking up dust and dirt on uneven surfaces, such as gaps between cushions or fabric buttons on a sofa.
That said, all motorized heads were reliable in avoiding tangles or blockages during my time using the Samsung Jet 90 Complete. Cleaning these ends is also quite easy for those occasional cases of dirt accumulation, or tangled wires and scraps of paper. The smaller non-motorized attachments are useful for reaching tight spaces or cleaning hard surfaces such as countertops and counters, and work as expected.
The power level ‘Medium’ is the default setting for the Samsung Jet 90 Complete vacuum cleaner and is the level that operates every time the unit is turned on. It generates enough power for most of the daily cleaning tasks in my home and is a tool I often use during my review. Sometimes I have to increase the power to ‘Max’ for stubborn cleaning tasks, especially when vacuuming carpets and rugs.
The battery-saving ‘Min’ level may be enough for a quick floor cleaning, but I usually use the ‘Medium’ level more. The Samsung Jet 90 Complete can get pretty loud and jarring at full power, but it doesn’t sound too loud or annoying at ‘Medium’ or ‘Min’.
Battery life on the Samsung Jet 90 Complete vacuum cleaner is decent, but not quite in line with similarly priced competitors like Dyson V12 Detect Slim must provide. With only the ‘Medium’ power setting active, I was able to use the Samsung Jet 90 Complete for about 25 minutes on a single charge using the motorized cleaning head, while the ‘Max’ setting left the ran for about eight minutes. The device has a claimed runtime of up to 60 minutes with ‘Minimum’ power mode.
Normally, this is enough to clean nearly my entire two-bedroom house in one session, or comfortably clean two or three rooms with occasional use of ‘Max’ power mode. Battery life could have been slightly better, but it didn’t significantly affect my ability to effectively use the Samsung Jet 90 Complete on a daily basis. It takes about three hours to fully charge the vacuum cleaner, from empty.
There are plenty of affordable vacuums out there, but the benefits of investing in a high-end cordless vacuum are substantial. The Samsung Jet 90 Complete is certainly pricey compared to vacuums, but it also delivers the premium experience you’d expect from a premium vacuum. With powerful suction, good accessories, and a unique and convenient Z Station charging dock, the Samsung Jet 90 Complete largely delivers a good cleaning experience.
That said, there are some minor downsides, including average battery life, a somewhat unwieldy trash-cleaning process, and a slightly unwieldy handle position. However, these issues didn’t affect too much of the overall positive experience I had with the Samsung Jet 90 vacuum cleaner.
The Samsung Jet 90 Complete looks good and delivers good cleaning, but if you’re looking for a little more functionality, Dyson V12 Detect Slim also worth considering for the laser dust detection system and dust collection insights. However, the Jet 90 is a bit more affordable than the Dyson vacuum cleaner, while also providing better suction power.
