Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Gen 1 Vs E35??

Hi OZBs,

I am trying to buy a robot vacuum and getting Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Gen 1 and Roborock E35 at same price around $330, which is my budget.

I am currently using gen 1 borrowed from a friend and absolutely love it, but E35 at same price offers mopping function however lacks LDS.

Anyone has there 2 cents on this with personal experience of using e35 or both vacuum can help me decide?

Thanks

    I'm buying an E35 as the area that gets the most traffic is polished concrete.

    Bought an E35 off ebay this morning from RoboRock Australia. $412.44 - 20% = $329.95 - CashRewards 11.11% = <$300 (can't remember if the 11% is off 412 or 329).

      i thought Cashrewards 11.11% wasnt eligible if there is coupon code?? has cashrewards confirmed ur cashback?

        Haven't confirmed and I was going to buy @$330 anyway. In my usual way, sometimes I take a punt and hope for the best.

            @JohnyEnglish: I was surprised too. Money not available until late Dec so they can always take it back. CashRewards has always been very fair to me in the past so Que Sera Sera.
