Who should buy Miele Scout RX3

  • If you have other family members that don’t know how to use the app, such as the elderly, they can still use the Miele Scout RX3 because it comes with a remote control that is easier to understand and use.
  • If you have many low-lying furniture, the Miele Scout RX3 is an excellent choice because it has a low height of up to 8.5 cm only. It can easily clean under the sofa, bed, or cupboards where most dirt accumulates.

Who should NOT buy Miele Scout RX3

  • If you live in a large house, the Miele Scout RX3 might disappoint you because it can only clean for a maximum of 60 minutes. The Ultenic T10 has an impressive battery life of up to 280 minutes and the Roborock S6 MaxV has a maximum runtime of 180 minutes.
  • If you are on a tight budget, it is more practical to look for other cheaper robot vacuums, such as the Roborock S6 Pure or the Dreame D9 that can still provide efficient cleaning.
  • If you are looking for a robot vacuum that can show you what the robot vacuum sees in real-time, you might want to check the other version of the Miele Scout RX3 which is the Miele Scout RX3 Home Vision that has a live home monitoring feature.

Verdict

This is our verdict of the Miele Scout RX3 based on several hours of research of reviews from both experts and users.
Updated 06-11-2021

The Miele Scout RX3 has two other versions which are the Miele Scout RX3 Runner and the Miele Scout RX3 Home Vision. The Miele Scout RX3 has a cheaper price compared to the other two which also means it lacks some features.

The Miele Scout RX3 can only clean for a maximum of 60 minutes while the other two versions (Miele Scout RX3 Runner and Miele Scout RX3 Home Vision) have twice its battery life which is up to 120 minutes. There won't be an issue using the Miele Scout RX3 if you live in a small house or apartment. But if you live in a large house, the Miele Scout RX3 might not be able to create a map of your whole house because it will return to its charging station before it finishes its mapping.

The Miele Scout RX3 has an excellent vacuuming performance on both hard floors and carpets. The side brushes have a unique look because there are two layers and the upper brush is shorter than the lower brush. The side brushes help the Miele Scout RX3 reach the dirt on the corners and edges more efficiently. With its low profile, it can also clean under the sofa, bed, or other areas that you often ignore because it is hard to reach. Those areas that you often ignore are areas where dirt mostly accumulates. So the low height of the Miele Scout RX3 is excellent in cleaning every area of your home.

The two cameras integrated in front of the Miele Scout RX3 help the robot vacuum navigate and map your house. With the help of its 3D smart navigation, it can thoroughly clean your house and skillfully avoid obstacles that are on the way. It creates an accurate map in the app where you can view the current status or track the robot vacuum. However, it can only save two maps unlike other robot vacuums at this price range, such as the Roborock S6 MaxV that can save up to four maps.

The app is intuitive so you can easily understand how it works even if you are new to robot vacuums. But if you have other family members that don’t know how to use the app, such as the elderly or if you don’t have a strong WI-FI connection, you can still control the Miele Scout RX3 by using the remote control. Another way to control the Miele Scout RX3 is through voice integrations by using Amazon Alexa. It has a digital display on top of the robot vacuum that shows the remaining cleaning time.
It comes with magnetic tape so you can use it to block off areas that you don’t want the robot vacuum to go. You can put it in areas with a lot of cables and it won’t get stuck or areas with vulnerable objects and the robot vacuum will not crash into them.

Overall, the Miele Scout RX3 is an excellent choice if you live in a small house due to its short battery life but it has a great vacuuming ability which makes it worth the price.
