Our verdict of the Monoprice Strata Home Robot Vacuum:

A solid budget robot vacuum for the price. But if you don't need a smartphone app/voice assistant controls, or your home has a complex layout, look elsewhere.

Vacuum - Household - Chore - Cleaning - Reality

Considering a robotic vacuum to help you out with the boring household chore of cleaning? This can now become a reality for anyone thanks to the variety of budget options available.

Monoprice is known for offering solid products at below-average prices, so we’re excited to put the Strata Home Robotic Vacuum from Monoprice to the test. Read on to see if this is the vacuum for you–and at the end of this review, we’re giving one away to one lucky reader!

Package - Components

When you crack open the package, you’ll find the following components included:

The Monoprice vacuum has the following system specs:

Dust - Box - Capacity - Oz

Dust box capacity: 20.3 fluid oz.

Water tank capacity: 10.1 fluid oz.

Everything - Vacuum - Run - Hours - Charger

After unpacking everything, you’ll need to charge the vacuum manually before its first run. The manual recommends doing this for at least six hours. You’ll need to plug the included charger right into the unit instead of using the dock for the first time.

Once that’s done, you’re ready to start cleaning nearly right out of the box. Strata allows you to control this vacuum in several ways, so you use any of the following as you see fit:

Spot - Mode - Vacuum - Circles - Spot

Spot: In this mode, the vacuum spins in circles to clean an extra-dirty spot.

Edge: When the vacuum hits a wall, it will turn and attempt to navigate around it.

Hit - Home - Button - Anytime

Hit the Home button anytime...
