    Is this the 2nd gen model?

  • +6 votes

    Got one last year and highly recommend.

  •  

    Hard to tell in some comparisons but for those in the know or with experience how does this compare to V2 in regards to tracking/mapping?

    I don't care about the mopping function unless there's more of a justification to buy the 2nd model…. Cheers

    • +3 votes

      The justification for 2nd gen is generally if you have higher ground it can climb better up to 2cm instead of the 1.5cm in the 1st gen.
      Suction power is a little more, mapping has the feature of spot cleaning using the mapping.
      If you have shaggy carpets, 2nd gen does a better job getting through it.

      If none of these appeal to you, 1st gen is the way to go

      •  

        Thanks Coco, after reading g a comment below about Gen 2 being able to enter areas to keep away from, unless this thing can safely traverse downward stairs, I think I might wait until the Gen 2 is on sale.

        •  

          The first gen has edge/stair detection - so you don’t need to worry about that at all. The feature you mentioned above is more for being able to stop it from going into your bathroom even when the door is open (as the floor may be wet etc).

          I’m looking forward to upgrading to a second or waiting for the third gen - Button first gen is nothing short of AMAZING.

        •  

          Gen 1 can use magnets to prevent it going into your bathroom. Run a strip of magnetic tape over the edge it wont go past it.

    Very happy with ours. Have a large house and it runs twice - three times a week while we're at work. No issues whatsoever and helps keen the floors clean between proper vacuums which we now only really need to do every few weeks. Have a mix of carpet and tiles with rugs on them.

    Had got caught a couple of times on things such as phone cords we left on the floor and on the bathroom mat But usually not an issue at all, especially after the first few times we figured out what it was getting caught on and just made sure we leave them up.

    Reminder to Coles CC Peeps, price protection claim time!

    •  

      Does the Coles CC price protection also work for ebay? I thought it only worked at B&M shops.

      •  

        I've claimed a few off ebay before. But thinking about it, they were for Target and Good Guys so maybe thats all they noted. Gave a shot anyway for free $30 :)

      •  

        Heya, I just got my claim approved for this - they asked me to send through a receipt for this one for some reason, but yes ebay stores are a go! As long as they are Aussie I suppose..

    Got 2 - Both from RoboGuy - One for home and one for the shop.

    Looking to wrap the one at the shop with 3M Vinyl Carbon Fibre look and putting motion-activated red and blue flashing lights on it.

    How long before the first tower block burns down because some robo-vacuum filled up with fluff or its motor burns out or the battery explodes. Moving to free-standing house soon, phew!

      Or recalled as it is found to contain asbestos

        or defective Li-Ion batteries, charge circuit… etc.

        Then again, whilst at work I can imagine it vacuuming up a puddle of cat pee, dog vomit… and then catching fire.

        Oh wow, if it were to catch fire, yikes!

    As someone that bought one of these last year:

    Pros:
    - Never having to vacuum
    - Making the robot clean up even the most minor of inconveniences
    - Tells you when to clean the dust bin, etc.
    - Forces you to keep the house clean otherwise it gets caught on things you've left on the floor

    Cons:
    - Regularly struggles to find the dock
    - Regularly gets caught on something and can't finish its cycle
    - Occasionally pushes a door closed and gets stuck
    - Breaks cables it grabs - if you have Apple cables (overpriced and expensive) it's not cool to see them fraying or with black scuffs and bends all over them
    - Can't climb at all, except sometimes where it'll then get stuck half-way there

    • +10 votes

      Regularly struggles to find the dock

      Strange mine's never had that problem.

      • +1 vote

        I usually find this happens if you are standing near it when you start it. If i decide to start it when hitting the on button on the vac I quickly bolt the room to make sure it doesn't map out my feet…

        • +1 vote

          Why not use the app to start it? I never had this problem though even manually starting it.

      • +4 votes

        For anyone on the fence, came to say this has never happened to me either. Finds the dock exceptionally well.

      •  

        Has only happened to me once in around 100 cleans.

    • +5 votes

      In response to cons above…

      • Almost never had issues finding dock, and i've bought 3 (1 for me, 2 as gifts). Only if it chewed something up impacting its ability to move or got stuck on rug maybe. Rare and easily preventable.
      • Should only get caught on things if you errr… leave crap on the ground it can suck up, like cables. Don't do it, shouldnt have problems! Once mine got stuck on shaggy rug, so i block it off. And it once got stuck trying to climb up the base of a speaker stand, so i positioned it slightly differently. No further problems since.
      • Don't leave cables laying around for it to get at…??? Honestly. Geez, Apple consumers.
      • Probably lucky for you i'm imagining.
      •  

        Sorry for upsetting the fanboys/hivemind here, as if you've never thought a charging cable might go from the wallet socket and then rest on the floor when not in use?

        •  

          your list of pros are wrong too. never having to vacuum? no way. i wouldn't rely on this as a dedicated vacuum cleaner. i would still need to get the regular vacuum out once every few weeks to clean areas the robot can't get to and do dusting etc
          Your list of cons are largely things that are problematic purely due to your own laziness. It's your responsibility to make sure the house is clear of crap on the floor.

          You people remind me of the children that would spend hours fighting online trying to justify their purchase of PS3 or Xbox. Why are you so upset that I have issues with a product you purchased? Are you such a child that you're so insecure that I might invalidate your purchase?

          How are any of those issues due to my own laziness?

          "- Regularly struggles to find the dock"

          How is this me being lazy? I have come home multiple times and found the robot in another part of the house, with a notification that it couldn't find the dock.

          "- Regularly gets caught on something and can't finish its cycle"

          How is this me being lazy? It gets caught on the doorstopper for the front door, it gets caught on shoelaces, it gets caught on floor mats

          "- Occasionally pushes a door closed and gets stuck"

          How is this me being lazy? Do I need to bolt my doors down?

          "- Breaks cables it grabs"

          How is this me being lazy? I have an iPhone cable connected to my PC, given the design of the USB port the cord often hangs onto the ground unless I remember to try and lay it over the top of the desktop. This is something no one would have to think about unless they have a robot vacuum. It isn't laziness.
          My phone charger and laptop charger in my bedroom are plugged into wall sockets, and it isn't close enough to the bedside table for the cables to easily rest on top of it without making an effort to hook them around something. This isn't a design fault of the robot but it's something to keep in mind, because if it grabs them it will damage or break them.

          Honestly, f*** off.

          As I hinted to in my post about this.

          Either these people have perfect ikea homes, or they aren't using it as intended (you turn it on and it cleans the whole house)

    Is it worth getting the extra 2year warranty??

    • +2 votes

      I personally wouldn't bother, extended warranties rarely afford you any more coverage above your existing consumer rights you are already legally entitled to.

  • +1 vote

    The first gen is great but honestly I don't think its worth a buy for anyone that has a less then perfect house/apartment.

    Basically the #1 issue is areas that will confuse it such as places its going to get stuck/confused, places it will try to climb that it can't and just places you don't really want it to go.

    If your place has any place where you don't want it to go or have trouble with, your only option is the magnetic tape but this works poorly, is hard to place correctly and looks bad.

    I would say most people need generation 2 unless they want to deal with these issues.

    Gen 2 allows you to mark areas for it to stay away from.

    •  

      Thanks for this…. I imagine a set of downwards stairs we have might be a place it should stay away from then….

    • +3 votes

      I use a $4 door snake to block it from going where i don't want. Easy as pie.

      •  

        It really depends on what you are blocking.

        Cables or random things under the bed, a snake won't fix

        A chair that has a round base… a snake won't fix unless you wrap it around the whole chair

        A floor mat (such as in the bathroom or a entry mat) that will move around if the vaccuum drives onto it, a snake won't fix.

        I'm just pointing out that there are so many potential issues for the vacuum to run into.

        My current solution is to just close doors it handles poorly and I went to bunnings and literally glued wood around my bed so it wouldn't go under my bed.

        Gen2 would be as simple as turning it on and it would clean my whole house, excluding problem areas.

        • +2 votes

          Wouldn't you want it going under the bed?

        •  

          @jonnoyeo:

          Yes but if you are like me and have a few cables and things under there, its not an option to do that.

        •  

          @samfisher5986: This is exactly what I was referring to when I said it forces you to clean everything off the floor. I have some IKEA plastic containers under my bed. Every now and then it does climb onto them, then can't climb off. Putting them elsewhere is an inconvenience. It has also climbed over the rails that my wardrobe door sits on, and then gotten stuck either half way or over the other side.

          At this point I've changed its hours to only clean the house when I'm home or about to be home, and yet I still close my door cos I cbf making sure my room is perfectly clean before the robot comes in.

        •  

          @noodlesfordaddy:

          Well you are meant to clean everything off the floor before you use a normal vacuum too.
          But I agree, it is a bit of a pain when robot vacuums are meant to go around a few times a week. I am clean but I'm not spotless!

  •  

    Would these work for two level houses at all? Like one week upstairs, next week downstairs (obviously moving it between floors yourself)

    •  

      That's what we do, works well. Just carry it to where it needs to be, and hit start. It will complain it cannot find the dock at the end of the clean, but it returns to where you started it no problem.

    •  

      Yes works fine.

    bought gen2 from them a week ago for $512 thinking gen 1 deals will never come :'(
    Should have waited.

  •  

    All of my flooring is laminate floorboards except for a shaggy rug in lounge, will it have trouble getting stuck on the rug?

    •  

      Probably. I have a very shaggy rug and it gets stuck on it, so i block that bit off. Everything else it's ace with! One of the best purchases got one for mum for christmas, she has 2 dogs that come inside a lot and she is stoked with it!

      •  

        how do you block that bit off? Is that doable with the app or something so it never goes there?

        •  

          You can only block off in the app if you have gen2

        •  

          Pretend its a wall and you can block it off.

          Genuine Xiaomi Magnetic Strip Invisible Wall for Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2M - sew it to the bottom of the rug.

    •  

      We have a pretty shaggy rug and it has no issues with it. Slows it down a little, but cleans it well. I think it even cleans the edge sensors for us, which is an extra positive.

    •  

      it wont actually go onto the rug, if its as shaggy as the ones from Ikea, it will wont even get on them, it will be blocked by its height.
      That is what I have experienced

    Recently bought the 1st gen version. Love it but can't have it working when not at home as it quickly fills up then stops.
    Haven't been able to link it to the app for some reason it just won't connect, therefore can't get it to change to English for me, very frustrating. Have googled etc but nothing seems to work. If anyone knows how to fix this, let me know, otherwise highly recommend it.

    Dammit, I was looking for one of these over the past couple of weeks but I ended up getting the Gen 2 model for $512 (Aus stock) as it was only about $100 difference. Now I am crying at the $180 difference, lol! I could have bought an air purifier for that (still looking for one if anyone knows of any deals!).

    For the vacuum and a Smart Socket WIFI unit.

      That's a good find and I'll remove it out of the description, definitely worth forking out the extra $10 though.

      •  

        All good champ, local stock is always better, just thought I would share my dd4 trick. Applies to pretty much anything that isnt on a flash / carnival sale and YMMV, it's not supposed to be for the vacuum i dont think?

        One account it worked on, the next account i tried with dafangs didnt keep the discount at final checkout. I'll check it out more.

        •  

          No worries at all, thank you for sharing! It's a great trick. And I don't think it should work like that lol

    •  

      Cool little trick lol. Are there other (cheaper) items that have this 20% off coupon attached to it too?

      Personally, I'm not fussed by the lack of local warranty as this is for family overseas.

      • +1 vote

        I'm not 100% sure to be honest, I just grabbed the smart socket wifi as i needed one anyway, have a look around the site; would have to be dd4 seller. As I mentioned also, be a little wary, it worked on my first order but my second one went to full price at final checkout and didnt proceed. I dont think i did anything different between the two orders either, just seperate accounts.

        •  

          All good, thanks for the tip anyway.. However…

          I just tried ordering this. On the page before you place the order, the 20% does indeed (as you said) appear to come off the entire order, but once I placed the order (pre-payment), the discount then only applies to the WiFi socket. Am I doing something wrong?

    •  

      I can't seem to find the 20% coupon. "Click the seller coupons, 20% off $0 or more"

      Any help would be great.

      Cheers!

    We bought one at the end of last year because of all the fantastic feedback. Wasn't sure what to expect, but we haven't been disappointed. It's so nice having permanently clean floors. We have it set to run while we are at work, so no interruptions.

    The only issues we have:
    Picks up so much dirt day after day, where it keeps finding it I have no idea, so we have to empty it every couple of days. Not a problem really, more a pro.
    Every now and then it can close a door on itself.
    Don't leave a phone cable hanging down, it will find it and eat it.
    If you have black rugs, cover the cliff sensors with duct tape else it will avoid some black rugs.

    Some people have complained that it wont find the dock, ours is living under a kitchen trolley in the corner of the kitchen, out of sight, it finds the dock every time.

    The app is great, it's amusing to watch it map your house. If it does get stuck e.g eats your phone cable, you will get a notification on your phone.

    Even the packaging on the product is nice. We also stocked up on spare consumables just in-case which are very cheap.

    If you don't have one, buy it!

    Thanks OP. Finally took the plunge…
