I have to admit cleaning is not my favourite activity so when I was presented with the opportunity to review the Tineco Floor One S7 Pro I jumped at the chance. This top-of-the-range, all-in-one vacuum has completely changed how I clean my apartment and quickened up the process dramatically. My mop is gone, my old vacuum is redundant and I’m all in on my new life with the Tineco Floor One S7 Pro.
But as with all things that offer so much value, it comes at a cost – and it’s not cheap. It retails for around A$1300 at the time of writing this review but after using it for a few weeks, I am sure that it justifies its price and could even argue it’s good value.
Design and First Impressions
I unboxed the Tineco Floor One S7 Pro and was immediately impressed with the design, aesthetics and ergonomics of the unit. It’s smaller than most vacuums, very lightweight, looks great and is very easy to set up. It’s certainly a step up on the many other vacuums we’ve covered.
The setup is very straightforward and clearly explained in the manual. Just attach the handle, and plug in the charging base, connect the water tanks and you’re good to go. All in all, it takes not longer than a few minutes to get it up and running.
This is a high-tech device with an LCD colour screen that is used to navigate the different settings and even offers a tutorial. The tutorial walks you through the basics like connecting the water tanks and changing cleaning modes. This again takes just a few minutes and once this is done, you’re ready to clean.
I’m quite a tall person at 6 feet but found the handle to be a comfortable height, and the device very comfortable to use in general. A feature that I absolutely loved was the bi-directional wheel motors that help move the device forward and backward, quickly adjusting to the direction you apply force.
Overall, I was thoroughly impressed with my first 20 minutes or so with the device!
Quality of Life Features
Now, let’s get down to what really matters—the performance. This device is packed with features that make cleaning feel less like a chore and more like a walk in the park. The self-propulsion system is the star of the show, but it’s not the only one!
Sometimes it’s the small features that make a big difference, and the Tineco Floor One S7 Pro is full of these. Take the front lights, for example. They illuminate the area just ahead of the vacuum, making it easier to spot any stray crumbs or dust that you might otherwise miss. It’s a simple addition, but one that significantly enhances the cleaning experience.
Another feature that caught my attention is the auto switch-off. The moment you put the device in its upright position, it automatically turns off. No need to search for a power button or worry about accidentally leaving it on. It’s these thoughtful touches that show how much attention has been paid to the user experience.
Suction Power: Smart but Not the Strongest
Alright, let’s dive into a topic that’s often the make-or-break factor for vacuums—the suction power. Now, the Tineco Floor One S7 Pro is no slouch in this department. Thanks to its iLoop smart sensor technology, it can adjust its suction power based on the type of debris it encounters. It’s like having a vacuum with a brain, automatically dialling up the power for stubborn dirt and toning it down for lighter tasks.
However, let’s keep it real. While the smart sensor technology is a nifty feature, the suction power isn’t exactly the strongest when compared to other vacuums in the same price range. Don’t get me wrong, it gets the job done, but if you’re used to vacuums that can suck up a bowling ball, you might find the Tineco Floor One S7 Pro a tad underwhelming in this aspect.
But here’s the thing: what it lacks in raw suction power, it makes up for in smart technology and convenience. The device is designed to be more of a ‘smart cleaner’ than a powerhouse, focusing on efficiency rather than brute force. So, if you’re looking for a vacuum that’s more of a thinking machine than a muscle machine, the Tineco Floor One S7 Pro could be right up your alley.
Battery Life and Tank Capacity
One of the most impressive aspects of the Tineco Floor One S7 Pro is its battery life and tank capacity. Both are designed for endurance, offering up to 40 minutes of cleaning time. That’s more than enough to tackle my entire apartment without having to stop for a recharge or a refill. It’s a seamless experience that lets you focus on the task at hand without any interruptions.
Self-Cleaning: The Icing on the Cake
Now, if you’re like me, the idea of cleaning your cleaning device might sound like some kind of cruel joke. But here’s where the Tineco Floor One S7 Pro really shines—it practically cleans itself. That’s right, this device comes with a self-cleaning feature that takes the hassle out of maintenance.
Once you’re done vacuuming and mopping, simply place the unit back on its charging base. The device will then initiate a self-cleaning cycle, rinsing the roller and the water tank so you don’t have to. It’s a game-changer, especially for someone like me who dreads the post-cleaning cleanup. This feature ensures that your device is always ready for the next cleaning session, without any unpleasant odors or build-up.
It’s another example of how the Tineco Floor One S7 Pro goes the extra mile to make your life easier. The self-cleaning feature is not just a gimmick; it’s a practical solution that addresses one of the most tedious aspects of home cleaning.
Price and Value
Now, let’s talk money. With a price tag of A$1300, this device is undeniably an investment. But here’s the thing: after using it for a few weeks, I can say with confidence that if you can afford it, then you won’t be disappointed.
The convenience it offers is unparalleled, and the range of features it comes with makes cleaning not just efficient but also enjoyable. If you’re someone who values your time and wants to make cleaning as hassle-free as possible, then the Tineco Floor One S7 Pro offers excellent value for the money.
So, what’s the final verdict? Is the Tineco Floor One S7 Pro a game-changer? In my book, absolutely yes. It has transformed cleaning from a dreaded chore into something I kind of look forward to.
The device is packed with features that make cleaning efficient and almost effortless. From its intuitive self-propulsion system to its long-lasting battery and tank capacity, it’s clear that this device was designed with the user in mind.
If you’re willing to make the investment, the Tineco Floor One S7 Pro is more than just a cleaning device; it’s a lifestyle upgrade. It brings a level of efficiency and convenience to cleaning that I never thought possible, and for that, it gets my wholehearted recommendation.
