out of stock Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner $299 Delivered (SG) @ Shopmonk

1790

Shopmonk has just launched its new website with an incredible first up promo. $61 less than this deal just a few weeks ago, and I believe the lowest yet on OzBargain. If shipping is anything like this deal, you should receive this in under a week. Product ships from Singapore. Just 100 in stock and ends Saturday 4pm, unless sold out prior. Enjoy :)

    Nice to be the first to comment. Is this a decent robot?

    • +2 votes

      Yes. Very sophisticated tracking and mapping. Plans it's cleaning to avoid doubling up. Doesn't seem to do any random circles like other robots do.

      I don't have any carpet or pets so I can't vouch for it's suction strength.

  •  

    Hope they fix the black carpet issue soon so I can get one for these

      can't you put tape over the sensor?

    •  

      oo this might be why its stops in my room can you explain the issue?

    •  

      I think i read here on another post that there was an option to disable the sensor via the mobile app. May be wrong. Im holding off until this is confirmed. Looking to replace my roboking with same issue.

    •  

      I've heard about the issue with black carpet but I haven't notice any problems in this area. We have dark carpet (almost black) and it works fine on it. Also we have wooden floors in the kitchen with dark mats (again, almost black) just inside the back door and at the oven and it goes straight over these without hesitation.

    In retrospect I'm glad Roboguy forced me to get a paypal refund.

    I'll probably get this one before people get them from him.

    Looks like the site was registered a couple of months ago.

    No listed ABN.

    There's an ABN and business name in the whois: SYDNEY CLOUD SERVICE PTY. LTD., 98168567388. ABN/ACN registered in 2014. Registered for GST. No idea if this business is for the site or simply this is a hosting service that middle manned the domain name purchase.

    Been selling on eBay for under 12 months, 371 feedback, 100% positive.

    Possibly a good new seller. But risky. Buyer beware.

    My name's Dan Wilson. I run Iowa's largest wildlife preserve.

    Lol before long this is gonna be the everday ozbargainer's robot vacuum of choice, just like how eneloop was/is the everday ozbargainer's choice for batteries.

  •  

    Anyone got one of these having any problems?

    Is this bettter than Dyson eye?

    Are these vacuums the new Eneloops?

    The Xiaomi robovac is very good. 2.5HRS battery life is insane. It does seem to get stuck on a few things, like the IKEA bath rug ( http://www.ikea.com/aa/en/catalog/products/30203402/ ), since it drags the rug as it passes and just shutsdown. A heavy rug or one that doesn't have high pile would not have this issue… So now I have to replace the rug with something else. Besides the small issue, it is a really nice unit, however it would be good if you could have an IR to block areas where you don't want it to clean or program specific places on the map to avoid… Having to run a black magnetic line on the floor is really ugly, plus a trip hazard. Anyone know if the vac supports any type of IR units?

    It works well to pickup light dust, however after I left the unit running for an hour on carpet, I went over with my Dyson Absolute and it picked up a lot of dirt. It seems this is perfect unit for hard floors, but I wouldn't just use this as your "sole" vac for people with carpet. Overall, I'd give it an A- seeing as it is the perfect addon to a normal vacuum cleaner. Basically I run this every 2 days and once a week I use the normal vac for a deep clean.

    Basically I run this every 2 days and once a week I use the normal vac for a deep clean.

    Still full vacuuming once a week doesn't sound like much of a time saving with the robot vac

  •  

    Got one last night. But now I'm worried about warranty. Can someone please help? TIA

    •  

      I'm assuming you'd have to ship it back to shopmonk (most likely at your own expense unless it dies within a short timeframe like a week) in Singapore and they'd fix/replacement it and send it back. Considering how heavy the vacuum is, it's probably not worth wanting to go through the hassle of warranty. I think there were a few deals at the $360 price range that were local stock.

      • +1 vote

        Local stock? How can their be local stock when xiaomi doesn't sell anything in Australia.

        •  

          I don't know if this was technically local Australian stock, but if there were any issues you could return it with their prepaid return label which is better than having to return to Singapore.

  •  

    It's an amazing vacuum. I had the aldi unit ($200) prior to this and they are chalk and cheese.
    Set time to go off daily and we do a proper vac once a week. The house remains noticably cleaner until our cleaning day.. probably attribute a fair amount of our cleaning to owning a border collie.
