Just picked one of these up through my Shop Samsung smartphone app, but pricing is the same on Samsung.com, so I would expect this to work when ordering from there as well. If the website doesn't work, I can confirm this works from the app. The vacuum is currently priced at $279, which is supposedly 40+% off (which is dubious), but I located coupon code J4PEGQYPH for an additional $50 off, bringing the price down to $229, plus tax. Shipping is free. My final total was $245.60.
I currently own a Roborock S4 and S5, and am a bit obsessed about robot vacs...having done a TON of research. This seems to be a well-reviewed vacuum, particularly one that uses intelligent camera-based mapping. From the demos I've seen, the nav is not as efficient as LIDAR-based bots like the Roborock and Neato offerings, but from what I have read, the software updates have gone a long way in making this a viable cleaning bot. I will be returning a Roomba 675 I bought as a Christmas gift, which is a dumb-nav, bump-n-go robot, and replacing it with this. This bot should be much more effective at cleaning my dad's house than the Roomba as it has more power, and will make sure it vacuums all areas that a bump-n-go vacuum could miss. I paid $200 for the 675, which has now gone up to $250 post-Black Friday, so this Samsung is actually cheaper than the entry-level Roomba.
As far as reviews go, I have seen folks complain about battery failures and some internal gears becoming damaged, but I think all vacuums can have issues...even the wildly popular Roborocks have had LIDAR issues, but this info still worth considering. Warranty is 1 year. Best Buy, Amazon, and Samsung.com reviews are all at right around 4 out of 5 stars,
Vacuum Wars on YouTube indicates that this is one of the best vacuums in the budget category, so don't expect this to be the same league as some higher-spec'd options. When looking at robots currently in the sub-$250 category, they seem to like it: https://youtu.be/g4qx6SY_Mig
