I must agree with you. However, Samsung bots (especially SR87XX and SR88XX) looks impressive about its image and quality, they still don't 'hide its power', because they lack! Another thing is why new owners - having the possibility to choose - still more often take SR88XX over SR89XX
In my opinion, models SR89XX without dustbin-eptying function (SR8980) must be uncomfortable in typical houses/apartments - although you empty it as frequent as once or twice per day.

Big bins are unnecessary on hard floors and I find emptying once a week with the hauzen running multiple times a day more than sufficient.
I notice that my SR8895 performs brilliant on area carpet, so I don't know why your don't. First series of Navibot had defective wiper - perhaps because of it. Or maybe you put it on mission too rare? Try "Max" mode or let it work 2-3 times per day or so often as needed to get the desired effect.
If you vacuum your floors frequently and empty it after every cycle, then the 0.3 litre dustbin may be sufficient, but in my two-story house it would not be. At least, the 0.6 litre dustbin of my current Navibot is emptied only once.
