Who should buy Vileda VR 102

  • If you are on a tight budget and looking for a basic robot vacuum with a low price that can still do its job well, the Vileda VR 102 might be the one you are looking for.
  • If you are new to robot vacuums, the Vileda VR 102 might be an excellent idea to buy because it is affordable and you can easily manipulate it with just the three buttons on top of the robot itself. So, you won't have to risk spending a lot of money and it is straightforward to use even for those who haven't had a robot vacuum before.
  • If you live in a house with only a few obstacles and furniture, the Vileda VR 102 might be suitable for you because it can work best in open spaces and it won't get stuck often.
  • If you have noise sensitivity, the Vileda VR 102 might be for you because it produces a low noise level when cleaning, hence, it won't disturb you.

Who should NOT buy Vileda VR 102

  • If you prefer robot vacuums with a remote control or app so that you don't necessarily have to control it hands-on, the Vileda VR 102 might not be for you because you can only operate it through the buttons on top of the robot. You might want to check the Kyvol Cybovac E31 that has a remote control, app, and voice control so that you can control it hands-free.
  • If you live in a large house, the Vileda VR 102 might not manage to clean your entire home because it can only constantly clean for 90 minutes and it doesn't have a systematic cleaning pattern. Instead, you might be more interested in the Roborock S6 that has an advanced mapping ability and a battery life of up to 180 minutes but comes at a higher price.

Verdict

This is our verdict of the Vileda VR 102 based on several hours of research of reviews from both experts and users.
Updated 11-08-2021

The Vileda VR 102 is a very affordable robot vacuum but it doesn't have the smart features to match the more expensive robot vacuums. Compared to its other budget robot vacuum competitors, the Vileda VR 102 lacks a remote control and a charging station which is usually common in budget robot vacuums. However, it is one of the most affordable robot vacuums and can still manage to pick up dirt and keep your home clean.

You can only control the Vileda VR 102 through the three buttons on top of the robot itself. So, it is very easy to use and doesn't need programming like other more expensive robot vacuums. However, it limits your options in controlling the robot vacuum. It doesn't have a cleaning schedule feature and spot cleaning mode which is also common in other budget robot vacuums.

The Vileda VR 102 cleans quietly at 60 dB which is the same as the sound produced by a microwave oven or aircon. Meaning it won't disturb you while you are watching or doing other things. It also has a low height of up to 8 cm so it can easily go under furniture to clean hard-to-reach areas.

The Vileda VR 102 is also capable of picking up dirt on hard floors and low pile carpets. However, it might have a hard time vacuuming high pile carpets. It doesn't have an advanced navigation system, so it will navigate your house randomly and it will only change directions if it bumps into an obstacle. Fortunately, it only bumps against furniture lightly. This type of navigation won't ensure that your entire home is cleaned. But if you live in a small house with a small number of obstacles, it might manage to clean the entire area.

The Vileda VR 102 doesn't have a docking station for charging. So, it won't automatically recharge if it drains its battery like in the Eufy RoboVac 11s that has a docking station. As for the Vileda VR 102, you have to pick it up to where it drained its battery and plug its charger in.

Overall, the Vileda VR 102 lacks some features but considering its price, it is understandable. It also has a decent suction power that can handle small bits of dirt and basic cleaning but it isn't as powerful as a regular vacuum. So, the Vileda VR 102 is best used for maintenance and in-between cleaning since it might leave some spots uncleaned.
