The Samsung Jet 60 is the entry-level model in Samsung's lineup of Jet stick vacuums. It shares a lot with the Samsung Jet 70, with the same 150-airwatt motor, 1800 mAh battery, and a relatively similar set of attachments. The main difference between the two is the Jet 60's Jet Fit floorhead, which, while lighter than the Jet 70's Turbo Action Brush, results in inferior overall performance on most surfaces.
The Samsung Jet 60 is good for bare floors. It has no trouble dealing with small debris and pet hair on this surface type, though it's worth mentioning that pet hair can get tangled around its brushroll. It also has a slightly harder time dealing with bulkier debris. Still, its lightweight construction makes it easy to maneuver in tight spaces, and it has an easy-to-maintain design that incurs few recurring costs.
The Samsung Jet 60 is a good option for low-pile carpet. It easily clears away pet hair and most fine and large debris, though you might still need to make an extra pass to get everything. It doesn't weigh very much, enabling you to pick it up and carry it without much effort, though its floorhead can still get caught on loose obstructions like rug tassels. Its battery life isn't especially impressive either. Thankfully, the vacuum is easy to maintain and incurs few recurring costs.
The Samsung Jet 60 is great for cleaning high-pile carpet. It exerts a fairly strong force through its floorhead, enabling it to suck up most fine and large debris on this surface type, not to mention pet hair. It isn't especially noisy and has a lightweight construction that makes it easy to maneuver. However, there's no brushroll on/off switch or method of height adjustment, making it hard to clean surfaces like shag-pile carpeting.
The Samsung Jet 60 is a decent choice for dealing with pet hair. While it has no trouble sucking up pet hair on bare floors or low and high-pile carpet, hair can still become tightly wrapped around its brushroll. Its turbo brush attachment does an okay job dealing with pet hair on upholstered surfaces, though you'll probably need to make several passes to get all of it. It also doesn't come with a mopping floorhead to deal with any mud or dirt your pet might track in. However, it isn't especially noisy, which is good if your pet is sensitive to loud noises. It has a five-stage filtration system that's effective in sealing in fine allergens.
The Samsung Jet 60 is excellent for vacuuming staircases. Its cordless design ensures that you don't need to worry about tripping over a power cable, while its lightweight construction enables you to pick it up and carry it with minimal effort. It can be quickly reconfigured as a handheld vacuum to clean tight spots. Performance on bare surfaces is decent, and it does a very good job of dealing with material on carpeted stairs.
The Samsung Jet 60 is a great option for vacuuming the inside of your car. Its cordless design enables you to clean all parts of your car's interior without having to stay close to an electrical outlet. You can use it as a handheld vacuum by removing its wand and floorhead to clean tight spots. It comes with a crevice tool for tackling debris in narrower cracks and a turbo brush for dealing with debris on floormats and upholstered seats, though this attachment can struggle with clearing away shorter strands of hair.
The Samsung Jet 60 isn't designed for workshop cleaning. It delivers satisfactory performance on flat surfaces like concrete floors or work tables and does a good job on low-pile rugs, but it isn't meant for vacuuming common workshop debris like wood or metal shavings. It also isn't capable of dealing with liquid spills and does a terrible job dealing with dried-on stains.
The Samsung Jet 60 is available in four separate variants, though they differ only in terms of color and included attachments. We tested the Jet 60 Pet, and you can see the label for our test unit here.

The Samsung Jet 60 is a pretty basic cordless stick vacuum. It's very similar in design to the slightly more expensive Samsung Jet 70, with the same 1800 mAh battery and 150-airwatt motor, but it comes with a different Jet Fit floorhead. While this new floorhead is smaller and lighter than the Turbo Action floorhead included with pricier models, it struggles a little more with picking up larger debris, while pet hair tends to get tangled in its brushroll a little more easily. The Jet 60 also lacks the small status display found on more expensive models, which shows you the vacuum's current power mode and if there are any blockages or other mechanical issues.
If you're looking for alternatives, take a look at our list of recommendations for the best cordless stick vacuums, the best lightweight vacuums, and the best vacuums for pet hair.
The Dyson V8 and Samsung Jet 60 each have advantages, and one might suit you better than the other, depending on your needs. The Dyson performs better on bare floors and low-pile carpet and does a better job of dealing with pet hair on furniture. Meanwhile, the Samsung charges much faster while offering similar overall battery life, has a larger dirt compartment, and performs better on high-pile carpet.
The Samsung Jet 60 is better than the Dyson V7 for most uses. The Samsung has a much larger dirt compartment, lasts longer on a charge, takes less time to recharge, and has a more powerful suction motor, resulting in superior debris pickup performance on bare floors and high-pile carpet. On the other hand, the Dyson has a less unwieldy miniature turbo brush attachment for cleaning upholstered surfaces.
The Samsung Jet 90 Complete is better than the Samsung Jet 60. The Jet 90 comes with a telescopic wand, has a longer battery life, features a small status display, and has a wider array of tools and accessories. Its soft-roller floorhead yields superior performance on bare floors, while its universal Turbo Action floorhead struggles less with pet hair getting tangled around its brushroll. The Jet 90 also comes with a rack station that has room for a second battery to charge at the same time as the vacuum, though only one battery is included. However, the Jet 60 is notably lighter.
The Samsung Jet 70 and Samsung Jet 60 are very similarly-designed vacuums that differ in very minor ways. The pricier Jet 70 is ultimately the better option for most users thanks to its more effective Turbo Action Brushroll, which yields superior performance on most surface types. Unlike the Jet 60, it's fully compatible with Samsung's Sweeping Brush Floorhead, which is meant for stains on bare floors. The Jet 70 also features a small display that allows you to monitor the vacuum's current power mode and shows any vacuum status warnings, like a jammed brushroll or blockage.
The Dyson V11 is better than the Samsung Jet 60, though the Samsung is a good alternative for the price. The Dyson is a little easier to maintain, incurs virtually no recurring costs, has a telescopic wand, lasts longer on a single charge, does a better job dealing with pet hair on upholstery, and performs better on bare floors and low-pile carpet. However, the Samsung charges much faster, weighs considerably less, and makes slightly less noise.
The Samsung Jet 75 is better than the Samsung Jet 60, though the two vacuums are outwardly almost identical. The main differences come from the Jet 75 having a more powerful 200 AW suction motor as well as a display screen showing the current power mode. The Jet 75 also comes bundled with Samsung's Turbo Action floorhead, which is more effective on most surfaces compared to the Jet 60's Jet Fit multi-surface floorhead.
The Dyson V15 Detect is better than the Samsung Jet 60. The Dyson has a much longer battery life, more tools and accessories, and performs better across all surface types. It also has an automatic surface detection system and can automatically adjust its suction power depending on the surface you're on. However, the Samsung weighs less and makes less noise.
The Dyson Cyclone V10 is better than the Samsung Jet 60. The Dyson comes with a wider array of attachments, has a longer battery life, and delivers better performance on bare floors and low-pile carpet. Meanwhile, the Samsung has a slightly larger dustbin, weighs a little less, and has fewer parts that need periodic cleaning.
The Samsung Jet 60 is better all-around than the Xiaomi Mi Vacuum Cleaner Light. The Samsung has a much larger dirt compartment, takes less time to recharge while offering similar battery performance, comes with a much wider array of attachments, and has a far more potent suction motor, resulting in better deep-cleaning performance. On the other hand, the Xiaomi is lighter and feels slightly better built.
The LG CordZero A9 is better than the Samsung Jet 60. The LG is better for longer cleaning sessions thanks to its longer runtime. It also delivers better performance on bare floors and can be bundled with a more effective miniature turbo brush attachment. Conversely, the Samsung incurs lower recurring costs, weighs even less, and has a higher-capacity dustbin.
The Samsung Jet 60 is better than the Shark Cordless Pet Plus for most uses. The Samsung weighs considerably less, is easier to maneuver, charges faster, and comes with a miniature turbo brush attachment as well as a wall-mount rack station with storage for two of its included attachments. It also exerts a stronger suction force through its floorhead and does a better job of clearing away debris on carpeted floors. However, the Shark feels sturdier and has a larger dustbin.
The Samsung Bespoke Jet is better than the Samsung Jet 60, though not by a huge margin, despite the large price differential between the two. The Bespoke Jet comes with a Cleaning Station Accessory that enables you to empty its dustbin without releasing a plume of dust, though you can purchase a comparable accessory for use with the Jet 60. The Bespoke also comes with a second battery that can be charged on its separate accessory rack, allowing you to quickly swap in a new full-charged battery as soon as the one in the vacuum runs out. The Bespoke Jet's twin brushroll floorhead and more powerful 210-AW motor yield better performance on all surface types, though its bigger brushroll makes it harder to maneuver than the lighter Jet 60. The Jet 60 also has a slightly larger dustbin.
The Samsung Jet 60 is better than the BISSELL Adapt Ion. The Samsung takes up less room, has a larger dustbin, weighs less, has a much longer battery life, and comes with more tools. It also delivers better performance across all surface types. Conversely, the BISSELL is a little more maneuverable.
The Samsung Jet 60 and Tineco PURE ONE S11 have different strengths and weaknesses. The Samsung is a better option for cleaning carpeted floors. Its more potent suction motor allows it to deliver significantly better performance on low-pile carpet and clear a little more debris on high-pile carpet. It also doesn't get stuck on shag-pile carpeting or tasseled rugs as easily, weighs less, and takes much less time to recharge. Conversely, the Tineco is a better option for cleaning bare floors, with better debris pickup performance on surfaces like hardwood or linoleum. Its turbo brush attachment is much better suited to dealing with pet hair on fabric.
The Samsung Jet 60 stick vacuum is reasonably well-built. Like the similarly-designed Samsung Jet 70, it's mostly made of plastic, though it does have a lightweight metal wand with a shiny rose gold finish, which gives it a more premium appearance. The glossy control buttons on its handle can scratch easily.
Assembling the vacuum is easy and intuitive. The charging station is easy to put together, but you may need to look at the instructions.
The Samsung Jet 60 cordless vacuum is decently easy to maintain. It shares most of the same maintenance requirements as the Samsung Jet 70, except for its floorhead.
Any part that you wash with water should be allowed to dry thoroughly, out of direct sunlight, before being put back in the vacuum. Unlike pricer models, like the Samsung Jet 90 Complete, there's no LED light on the handle to indicate when there's a clog, brushroll obstruction, missing filter, or when the vacuum isn't assembled properly.
The Samsung Jet 60 incurs impressively low recurring costs.
Note: Currently, no replacement parts for this vacuum are listed on the manufacturer's website. We'll update this review once these parts are available.
The Samsung Jet 60 is easy to store. It has the same dimensions as the Samsung Jet 70 and comes with a very similar rack station, which has space for two of its included tools, but no secondary battery charging slot. It doesn't have a telescopic wand, which would help reduce its vertical footprint.
The Samsung Jet 60's dirt compartment is okay. It's smaller than the advertised claim of 0.8L, requiring you to empty it pretty often, though this isn't unusual for a vacuum of this type. It's made of clear plastic, allowing you to see how full it is at a glance.
The Samsung Jet 60's range is limited only by the remaining battery life and the room left in its dirt compartment.
The Samsung Jet 60 is very portable. Its smaller floorhead results in a lower overall weight than the Samsung Jet 70, which is already lightweight to begin with. You can easily maneuver this vacuum in tight spaces or pick it up and carry it around.
The Samsung Jet 60's battery performance is alright. It uses the same 1800 mAh battery as the Samsung Jet 70, yielding similar overall runtime. Using it in its most energy-efficient 'MIN' mode with only its crevice tool attached yields almost 50 minutes of runtime, which is in line with the manufacturer's advertised claim of 40 minutes. However, you can drain its battery in a little over five minutes when using it in its most powerful 'MAX' mode with its floorhead attached. It forces you to work fast when vacuuming stubborn messes or surfaces like high-pile carpeting.
The Samsung Jet 60 has relatively few quality-of-life features. Using the '+' and '-' buttons on the handle lets you switch between its three different power modes: the energy-efficient 'MIN' mode, the default 'MED' mode, and the high-power 'MAX' mode. If you want a vacuum that can automatically adjust its suction power when moving over areas with a large amount of debris, the Tineco PURE ONE S11 is a good option. Unlike other models in Samsung's lineup of Jet Stick Vacuums, there's no miniature display to indicate the current suction power mode, so you'll need to judge what mode the vacuum is in based on the sound it's making when pressing the power control buttons. There are also no battery indicator lights on the vacuum's body, though there are visible charge indicators on the battery itself.
The Samsung Jet 60 comes with a couple of tools and accessories. There's a miniature turbo brush for cleaning fabric surfaces, a crevice tool for tacking debris in cracks, and a combination soft-bristle brush/upholstery tool for cleaning delicate surfaces and furniture. Swapping between these attachments is very easy, thanks to their quick-release tabs.
The Samsung Jet 60 delivers decent performance on bare floors. It easily clears away smaller debris like rice but can leave behind bulkier material like cereal, even when used in its most powerful 'MAX' mode. Look at the Shark Cordless Pet Plus if you want a cordless stick vacuum that's more effective on this surface type.
The Samsung Jet 60 does a good job of cleaning low-pile carpet. In its 'MAX' power mode, it's impressively effective in sucking up finer debris like baking soda and collects the majority of larger debris like sand, but you still might need to make an extra pass to get everything.
The Samsung Jet 60 performs amazingly well on high-pile carpet. It performs similarly to more expensive Samsung models, like the Samsung Bespoke Jet, despite its less powerful suction motor. When used in its 'MAX' power mode, it clears away most fine debris like baking soda and larger debris like sand.
The Samsung Jet 60 is remarkably effective in dealing with pet hair on a variety of surfaces, ranging from bare floors to low and high-pile carpet. You should pick up any large tufts of pet hair before vacuuming, as going over a large pile of hair can cause it to get tightly tangled in the floorhead's brushroll and wheels.
The Samsung Jet 60 has good suction performance. It uses the same 150-airwatt motor as the Samsung Jet 70, but its Jet Fit floorhead doesn't create quite as tight a seal against the contact surface compared to the Jet 70's Turbo Action Floorhead. It results in slightly slower real-world suction force.
The Samsung Jet 60 is very quiet. It shouldn't be disruptive for people in other rooms, though it can mask the sound of nearby conversation. That said, it's much louder when running in its 'MAX' mode, so you shouldn't use the vacuum in this setting for long if you don't want to disturb people nearby.
The Samsung Jet 60 is very maneuverable. Its lightweight body and floorhead make it very easy to maneuver around obstacles or pick up and carry over obstructions like electrical cords. You can also easily detach and attach different tools and accessories. However, its top-mounted dustbin forces you to crouch pretty deeply to clean under tables and chairs. Its floorhead can also easily get caught on shag-pile rugs, forcing you to turn the vacuum off to pull it free.
The Samsung Jet 60 is effective in sealing in fine particles. Like all other Samsung Jet stick vacuums, it has a five-stage filtration system that's advertised as being able to seal in 99.999% of microdust particles.
The Samsung Jet 60 does a decent job dealing with debris in cracks and crevices. While the Jet Fit floorhead doesn't offer the same level of debris pickup as the Soft Action Brush included with the Samsung Jet 90 Complete, it still manages to clear away most material. You're still better off using the vacuum's crevice tool to deal with debris in deeper crevices.
The Samsung Jet 60 does a terrible job dealing with dried-on stains. Unlike the Samsung Jet 70, which is listed as being fully compatible with a dedicated mopping floorhead, no comparable accessory has been released for the Jet 60.
