I have had a little time to see how this vacuum performs in a number of situations. There are some good updates, and some not so good. Let's do the not so good first.
Map saving feature in the app is listed as "Beta" and it is clearly beta. It will save the map, but every ~3 to 6 runs, it also seems to shift that map, overwrite parts of it and get confused in the process. The result is, in my case, that I find my vacuum in the kitchen closet, when she thinks she's in my bedroom, across the house. Last night I had to use the remote control to drive her to the dock, and then when I told her to dock, she ignored the dock and tried to drive down the hall to my office closet, where the dock was now "located". So map saving needs work.
The good news is, it can be re-set by simply docking the robot and turning off map saving and then turning it back on, and that they know it's beta so it will get an update or two to fix this problem in the future. The good news is also... map saving is only necessary to use zone cleaning and no-go zones. So some people can get away without even using it, and re-setting it isn't very difficult.
The good news that I have discovered is that this robot is even more versatile than I thought. It turns out the LIDAR tower on top, with which it "sees", is actually a button in and of itself, and when the vacuum tries to go under something it can't fit under, the button gets depressed and she will conclude she can't fit.
Also, I can not only set my vacuum to perform a scheduled cleanup multiple times per day, but I can also schedule them at different suction settings; so, for example, I currently have it set to vacuum once a day every day except Sunday on Balanced mode, and then on Sunday vacuum on Max mode.
I did try the mopping feature, and I was surprised at how useful it actually turns out to be. I followed the advice I was given to have it perform mopping in zones and have it repeat the zone 3x. There was a zone for each room/hall, and it never ran out of water. I did have to re-fill it after each zone was finished, and it took a lot of manually changing water and cleaning the pad, but it works well enough that even my skeptical girlfriend was forced to admit she saw a real difference.
So far the only problem I see is that the app needs updating to correct the map saving feature. Which is going to happen... so I'll maintain my 5 star rating.
I am coming from three years with a Neato brand D80. I named him Dudly Do-Bot as a joke, but it quickly became "Dumba** Dudley" because he was, shall we say, not very intelligent. He managed to destroy a family heirloom in the form of a mirror, and knocked over it's replacement several times, as well as knocking over small tables with glassware on them, etc. In the end, I was constantly having to help him out from under things, out from corners, and put the dustbin back in several times a cleaning with him beeping incessantly at all times of day. In the end, I had to replace him.
But Dudley did do one thing right. When he wasn't beeping and screwing up, he kept the dust down in my house, which is why I bought him; and without him, it quickly became a problem for me to breathe again. My girlfriend works as a housekeeper, so she wasn't exactly keen on coming home and vacuuming, and I have no vacuum otherwise (tile floors). So a replacement was necessary.
I looked at Neato, Roomba and a number of other options. After a lot of consideration, I was planning to get the Xiaomi Mi, based on amazing reviews. Then this one came out and the reviews were even better. That coupled with the improvements and the wet mopping feature sealed the deal. While I had to pay various bills first, I did manage to get it about a month after Dudley bit the dust.
I have only had it about 24 hours as of this writing, but I will be doing this review in sections over time. So this is "part 1" of the review. And I have to say, I am significantly impressed. Maybe not as much as I might have been were I not as well studied on what the options were, but regardless, I am still significantly impressed. Here is why.
First, getting started was not difficult. I just had to pay attention to the instruction booklet and the Mi Home app while it was being connected to the network. It took me about 7 minutes all told.
Second, updating the vacuum's firmware was easy and flawless.
Third, the instruction booklet is better than I expected; it is translated into English well, although you can tell that whomever did it was speaking English as a second language, as there are some minor word choice errors. That is true in the app as well; but in most cases, it still can be figured out, and the errors are rare and minor in almost all cases. It was a nice change of pace from the crazy "English" I have seen in some other Chinese product manuals.
Fourth, the app is very well done. I say that as someone who used to be a programmer. It has a lot of features, and in fact has almost every feature I could think of or want. For example, nobody who has reviewed this vacuum seems to have mentioned that this vacuum has unlimited configurability for when and where. You can set it to vacuum on a schedule of as frequently as once a day, but you can also create multiple schedules - meaning that you can, for example, have it vacuum five times on Monday, once on Tuesday, not on Wednesday, three times on Thursday, and then four times on Friday, while skipping the weekends.
Zone cleaning allows you to set up multiple zones where it should clean and make up to three passes, all during the same cleaning. So you can have it clean the bathroom rug, the floor next to your bed, and the kitchen, for example, and do so 1, 2 or 3 times in a row.
Virtual barriers work to prevent it from going where you don't want it to go, but so far they have been entirely unnecessary: she recognizes and honors the magnetic barriers I placed around my bedroom mirror for Dudley, and has not touched the mirror. But even if she did, it wouldn't matter, as she is so gentle that she doesn't disturb the pipettes I have situated on top of the perfumery components and glassware on even the smallest (folding) table in my perfumery lab. I couldn't have left that table out at all with Dudley, as he would have (did regularly) either gotten stuck and knocked everything off of it or knocked it over. She also doesn't move the shoe I have holding open my bedroom door for her, which Dudley would always plow through, getting himself locked in my bedroom, which of course resulted in endless beeping from him. Dudley was a bull in a china shop. My new vacuum is surprisingly careful, gentle and precise.
Dudley did not intelligently use his side brush, except by always taking a course that would put it closest to the wall. But what good does that do when the brush stopped spinning, and nothing I did would get it to spin again? My Roborock S5 has a very intelligently programmed and used side brush, which spins gently when she is cleaning away from walls so that it sweeps debris into her path, and when she is near the wall, it spins faster to get things out from next to the wall. Both work very well, and you can tell that a lot of consideration was put into that. Furthermore, she will move in small arcs to use that brush to sweep intelligently, not just in a straight line. That makes it much more effective still.
The only time so far that I had to rescue her was when she managed to swallow the old telephone wire I have near the baseboard coming out of my garage in the kitchen, which Dudley never could get to somehow. When she realized she was caught, she moved backward, which brought a folding chair down around her, trapping her. I have also found evidence that she has been intelligently designed to detect tangles and clogs (socks, for example) and will reverse the direction of her brushes to "spit them out". Have not seen this first hand yet (except for the side brush spinning backwards), but I have found socks on the floor in my bedroom where they were not before she vacuumed, and if she wasn't doing that, it should have gotten stuck in her main brush. It didn't.
Dudley could not fit under my bed. To my surprise, she does - and she has cleaned the entire surface under it. The first time she got stuck because my cat had torn up the liner on the bottom of the box spring, but I ripped it off and now she deftly cleans under my bed.
The first time we ran her fully, the house hadn't been vacuumed in a week, and with a cat and two Yorkies, it gets pretty funky by that point. I picked up most of the pine needles they brought in, but I did leave a few 2-3 inch pieces on the ground to see if they would clog her like they did Dudley. Nope, she sucked 'em right up and kept on going.
Another thing I really like is that when she was done with her first complete cleaning, her dust bin was completely full. With Dudley, he would fill it right where the air came in, leaving the sides of the dustbin empty. It required me to tap the dirt down into the sides, or empty it three times as frequently. She fills her dust bin much more efficiently, which should require less effort on my part.
I also was very surprised to see how much she picked up during today's full cleaning, after I emptied the dust bin yesterday. It was 1/3rd full again.
There are a lot of other features I like. It speaks to me in a pleasant female voice, and it was in English by default. If it gets lost, there is a feature in the app for finding your vacuum, which plays music continuously until you press a button on the top of the robot. The software has a volume control, and you can update and change the language packs, although right now there is only one in English. Updating the language pack installed on the vacuum was something I didn't expect them to be doing.
It also includes a remote control for manual control. You have the four different vacuuming modes (quiet, balanced, turbo and max) plus the mopping mode (I haven't used mopping mode yet). It even has a Do Not Disturb mode, where you can set it to not vacuum or make sounds. By default this is set for between 22:00 (10 PM) and 8:00.
You can also request help and give feedback directly through the app. I have not had to request help, so I can't say how that goes.
Overall, the machine and the app are both 5 star. I am very pleased and very impressed. Even my girlfriend likes the new vacuum. She was expecting to hate it as she did Dudley, but was quickly won over by how intelligently it works.
The only downside I can see has to be the reports of some people having trouble when they need customer service, but if this company is competent enough to get everything else right, I am sure they will eventually get that right too.
One thing I notice that Roborock/Xiaomi could improve is the one thing that Neato (Dudley) does better. That is, the cleaning path. Neato makes sure that their vacuums move back and forth along the long side of whatever area they are cleaning; lengthwise. The Roborock cleans in a widthwise pattern, meaning it takes shorter paths and must make more turns. This is not as efficient for time or cleaning. That said, the higher suction on the Roborock and it's obviously higher intelligence more than makes up for the difference.
There's more, but I can't remember it. I'll update this review in a few weeks or months and give you more information. If you're looking for a great robotic vacuum, though, I can (so far) heartily recommend this one. We shall see how well she lasts.
UDATE 5/14 - I had the Roomba I7+ for a few days and did regret returning my RoboRock. I couldn’t help but compare my options to the RoboRock - quiet, agile behavior and features. The Roomba I7+ is really nice, no doubt, but about 40% higher cost without the features that I really liked. I missed the RoboRock. I returned the Roomba and re-ordered the RoboRock. There was a special coupon for the s51, rose gold unit - I would have reordered it without the discount. Now my only concern is that this robot doesn’t scream pink, fingers crossed! I highly recommend this vacuum.
5/23 - update - whew, rose-color is ok and more importantly, definitely not pink- it looks good. I would have preferred the white version but there was a nice discount on the rose-gold model that made it impossible to pass up. Upgraded to five stars. Support has been super responsive, the vac (after trying out a Deebot 930, Roomba 980, roomba i7, and Roomba i7+) has managed to check all my boxes (ease of use, cleaning results, not too loud, good for pet hair, ability to create zones and no-go barriers). What is really impressive is the navigation - very smart. It is truly agile and does not ram into things. I have a number of rugs - a couple are fairly thick - and it navigates these well. I’ve paused it, moved it, bumped it and it always finds it back home to dock. Washable bin and filter are a real plus as well. The brushes, main and side, stay a lot cleaner than what I experienced on the Roombas. I don’t have any long-haired pets, so while it does great with cat fur and a low shedding 15 lbs Yorkshire terrier mix (picks up a ton, no brush issues) the roombas vs RoboRock may fair differently with long hair - not sure and for my needs, I don’t care. My unit stays clear of tangles and issues. The roombas caught hair/fur in the side brush and the main brush and needed to be cleaned after a few runs, not a big deal but the RoboRock has not demanded as much attention in this area. It did lose its brush cover on one run, think it might have happened when wrestling with a floor vent cover. I may not have securely fastened it the last time I took it off, but will stay alert to any repeats. So far it’s been great glad to have it back!

This is probably the best bang for your buck you can get with an 'intelligent' robot cleaner. I am very satisfied 1 month in and would recommend it to anyone.
A bit over ambitious, and tries to get under things that get it stuck.
But you can use the "barrier tape, and no go", option on the app.
Thst stops it getting stuck a second time.
Batter can vac my place more that two times.
For everything else, the machine is perfect.
WOW! We run this unit everyday and it picks up dirt every time. So much so that we need to empty the dust bin on the unit a lot. Some
Times 3 times in a session. But for us we live on a farm and have 5 dogs.... 3 puppies two adults. So with that being said most users shouldn’t experience our slight problem with the unit which is in my opinion is the only problem and that’s the under sized dustbin. I absolutely love the features for setting barriers and virtual no go lines to protect certain areas of the house! If your on the fence about this unit.... get it. It’s amazing..... and it’s amazing. I tell everyone about how much I love it
Goes in areas I never went myself. Really clever programming. Amazing suction.
I does get stuck once in a while if I forget things on the ground. Actually the neatest feature is that it forces me to clean up any clothes off the ground on a daily basis avoiding the clutter.
I never use more than 40 percent of the battery and he does his roughly 60m square cleaning area in one hour.
Amazing with carpets. For my fluffy carpet the suction is so strong it does comb the carpet at each passage a bit like when you trim the grass.
Mopping is nice but not as good as a good old Mop. I use it sometimes but a really reflective surface it might let stains.
Really positive. Coming back every day to a clean floor is amazing
Cons: At the moment it only does one floor, small bin (you need to empty it almost everyday)
I almost never write reviews, but this time it's so much worth it. I recently started to think that this is the best household purchase I've ever made in my entire life! It literally upgraded my quality of life!
Now, in my condo I have a BLACK hardwood floor and two cats. That's enough for the setting - you can imagine how bad it is. Cat hair and litter that they bring out on their paws is enough to require an everyday vacuuming. Now, after I got this robot - I.... haven't.... held..... a broom.... or my upright vacuum.... in my hands.... even once. This is insane! I just set it to vacuum every working day at 4pm, so when i come home - it's pristine clean!
Okay, chill. Let’s speak more objectively.
1. It’s damn smart. It gets trough even the tightest spaces of its own size 10/10 times. There has been 0 times that it didn’t get somewhere where I wanted it to go, provided that I removed large objects from the floor.
2. The carpet detection is awesome. It’s off by default, so make sure you enable it right away. What happens is whenever it finds itself on a carpet, it will automatically increase the suction.
3. The app is amazing. First of all, it draws a map of the cleaning area, and this map is very precise – you can tell where the tables, couches, etc. are located. You can use the app to schedule, change settings, draw and name areas on the map, set “don’t go” areas by drawing lines with your finger – it’s extremely convenient. If you suddenly realize that you’re brining somebody home after a party – just one click on the app to remotely send your vacuum to clean before your arrival.
4. It connects to Google Home (and Amazon, I guess). You can use commands like “Hey Google, start cleaning” or “Hey Google, send vacuum to dock” – haven’t discovered anything else.
5. The whole maintenance is emptying the dust bin, which is not big at all. Well, cleaning filters sometimes too, I guess.
6. Make sure that you remove “stringy” things like cords, any kind of ropes, pet toys, etc from the floor. If it finds one, it will most likely suck it in and get stuck. Other “classic” vacumm favorites should also be removed – clothes, small objects, etc.
7. It does get stuck sometimes. You’ll figure out its favorite places to do so, and can manage that. In my case it loved the leg of ironing board – would go over it with one side, and then get stuck. Other times it’s just if you left something on the floor, and it got sucked it, and blocked the brush – you’ll get notification on your phone either way.
8. Can’t speak about the mop attachment – haven’t used, don’t really care – it’s a bonus, not a necessity.
So as you may have figured out, it’s a 100% recommendation from me.
The Robot arrived promptly and was at work within minutes of unboxing. He came with a spare air filter, water filter and microfiber cloth for the mopping module. The robot works via the Mi Home App which was simple to download onto all of my devices and extremely simple to use. I nicknamed the robot “Robbie” after the robot of 1950’s fame. As soon as he was told to start cleaning he systematically mapped my house as he worked. He worked very methodically and covered every square inch of my very large house......well the downstairs part. I’m waiting for the Mi Home App upgrade that will allow Robbie to store multiple maps so I can have him save a map of upstairs.
I really love that you can send the robot to specific zones to be cleaned and additionally, there are “no go” zones that you can create. I have a large parrot cage on wheels in the living area ......I drew a no go zone around this as the parrots are breeding and I didn’t want Robbie bumping the cage......no problem.......he just vacuums around the perimeter of the cage which means I don’t need to clean the daily mess they make.
I spend a lot of time in the kitchen.......I usually have to vacuum the floor after I do a major cooking session there.........now....I just sit down for a rest, with a coffee and use my phone to send Robbie in to clean...... he only takes a few minutes and it’s done!
I have several guest bedrooms and a lot of house guests.........it’s so nice to send Robbie in to vacuum before guests arrive and after they leave. He also does the ensuite bathrooms.
I have large carpeted and tiled areas in my home. I also have chunky rugs. Robbie negotiates all of these with ease and it’s satisfying to hear him detect carpeted areas and increase the suction. He really picks up most of the dirt and the floors look really freshly vacuumed all the time. He seems to manage electrical cables......not a problem so far.
The mopping function is very useful on floors that aren’t heavily soiled. I have several bathrooms, and large tiled areas. You do need to be present when the mopping function is engaged. You also need to send the robot to the tiled areas for mopping as it can’t.....as yet.....distinguish carpet from hard floors as far as mopping goes.
I’m eagerly awaiting the Mi Home App upgrade so I can use Robbie upstairs and not lose the downstairs map. In the meantime, my old Roomba can do upstairs..... it takes forever and misses quite a bit compared to Robbie......maybe I’ll just buy Robbie a friend for upstairs so he doesn’t need to work so hard......
If I'm paying a high-end price, I expected a high-end robot.
