Shark ION Robot Vacuum RV761

Meet the RV761, a robot vacuum that has a tri-brush system:

  1. Side brushes
  2. Channel brushes
  3. Multis-surface brush roll

This way, it can attempt to hand debris on all surfaces as well as short-to-long pet hair. It is quite good with hair, but check intermittently to see if hair got tangled.

This Shark ION robot detects ledges and stairs to avoid falling off them, and it avoids damaging furniture and walls. If there is an obstacle that will potentially make it stuck, it navigates around it.

This bot transitions over thresholds quite well, it goes under furniture, and it operates fairly quietly. We just wish it did not struggle to find the base if far from it.

You can control this robot vacuum using the designated SharkClean app that is convenient. You can trigger or halt cleanings as well as schedule the bot to clean at your leisure. Of course, you can push the buttons on the robot vacuum itself as well:

  • Clean
  • Dock
  • Max

In any case, this bot will likely do most of the work for you, but we still encourage you to manually vacuum your home from time to time.


This Shark ION robot packs a slew of benefits that are marred by how docking can be an issue.

  • Good with hair
  • Transitions well
  • Fairly quiet
  • Convenient app
  • At risk of entanglement
  • Base needs to be close
  • Not a vacuum substitute
