    Just be mindful that S9 uses disposable mopping pads and dust bags.

    • +9 votes

      Seems like a silly choice
      Stopping me from purchasing

      •  

        depends. some prefer dust bags for easier dumping of rubbish and it acts as a extra filter. with bag less its rather dusty when you getting rid of your rubbish, you might need to brush/wash the compartment to clean it property.

        • +1 vote

          But are the dust bags readily purchasable and won't easily be end-of-life?

      how often do dust bags need to be changed?

      • +1 vote

        Well when they are full. Could be a week or could be a couple months

    •  

      it comes with 1 reusable mop pad

      •  

        The pc byte listing mentioned 1 use disposable mop pads

        •  

          In the unit I purchased it comes with 1 x reusable mop pad and 10 x disposable mop pads as per the post. Consumable accessories are plentiful on aliexpress and reasonable prices too.

            @marquise: Thanks

        Good review, but I would like to know how well it vacuums compared to Roborocks. The cheaper Viomis are generally not as smart as Roborocks.

  • +1 vote

    Sounds like a decent robot at a great price.

    If the Roborock S5 max/s6 pure didn't exist though.

      how do you think s5max is better than this?

        You're right
        It was the 360 line that was dodgy
        The xiaomi line does a good job

    I’ve been out off xiaomi bot vacs. First Gen was awesome then they seem to have lost the plot. Roborock has consistency

    •  

      This isn't a Xiaomi Mijia vacuum per se. Rather a Viomi, so a different sub brand like Roborock and hopefully much better.

      • +2 votes

        Even worse - Viomi reviews on here have been lackluster

      •  

        Roborock aren't a sub brand like Viomi, per se.

        They're their own independent company.

        They partnered up with Xiaomi for the first gen robovac.

        • +2 votes

          If you want to get technical then yes. Roborock is a Xiaomi ecological chain partner under the Mijia smart home brand. Xiaomi is a shareholder and strategic partner of both Roborock and Viomi.

          Roborock built the first gen vacuum and sold it under Xiaomi's brand. All subsequent models were released under their own name and since they're an ecological partner they can be used with the Mi Home app and purchased through official Xiaomi channels.

          Viomi are similar, except their products have always been under their own brand.

    Have these overcome the dark floor problem? I had an original one but had to send it back because it thought my dark floors were a treacherous abyss and wouldn't go there.

    •  

      No but some tape or 3d printer cover fix that problem

    •  

      Have a similar problem on a wooden floor with certain pieces being darker, it slows down but fortunately doesn't stop. Tried tape over the sensors but it detected they were covered (Viomi v3)

    • +1 vote

      Pack of disposable mop pads - i estimate 5 or more from briefly looking at it (no access atm to confirm. They give 1 washable mop pad.
      Not sure where to purchase atm.

      Side note: they give 2 disposable emptying bags.

    How does this compare to the Roborock S7?

    • +4 votes

      Roborock is a tier above Xiaomi/Viomi//Dreame

      •  

        How so? Just trying to figure out the differences. Seems to have multi-floor support, mopping and similar suction amounts.

        • +3 votes

          For starts the roborock app is far far better than the mihome one. That alone is enough to choose roborock then it's build and track record of performance and easy maintenance and repairs

        • +2 votes

          Roborock's vacuum and mopping performance is superior. It's also quieter and has better navigation.

          The extra cost is worth it.

    Looking to replace my s50 , how’s this compare?
    My s50 had squeaky wheels from day 1 and now has error 1 issue which I have to ‘jumpstart’ every 3-4 vaccum with a 9v battery

    •  

      S50 is one of the most repairable vacuums out there. If you're handy with a solder iron and don't mind pulling things apart you can easily fix the wheels and battery in about 30 minutes. Many YouTube videos showing how to do it.

      • +1 vote

        Yeap I had the Lidar fail, presumed the DC motor. Was sent a new replacement part as under warranty. Legit like 6 screws and it was simple plug out and in.

        S50 is a tank, however I am keeping eye out for an auto-empty upgrade as 2 German shepherds are killing it with shedding atm haha

  •  

    In the market for a robot vac for my new apartment with timber floors. Watched a bunch of Vaccum War videos and I was pretty set on the Roborock S5 Max. At a similar price point, is this better than the Roborock apart from the self-dumping feature?

      I read online that dreame D9 app is not very user friendly. And one YouTube blogger examed it and commented as this product feels like too rush to release. But I guess for a robot vac around $300 mark its OK.

    Thanks OP ..had bought this on pre sale for 799, would not have known about the price drop if you had not posted. For the record, asked the store and got a refund in 10 minutes so not too shabby on service but am yet to receive the unit . You tube videos seem to state the stated efficiency on paper translates to the unit, how well built is it , time will tell. My Roborock second gen is 4 years old, has had a battery and brushes changed and still works like a champ every day.. for a self emptying unit, I thought 799 was a bargain 599 is a no brainer. For people worried about disposable bags, thats how most companies make money..through consumables but if you see how the bags works it should be pretty easy to hack. Add a zipper/velcro to the bottom to empty out the bags till it gets clogged then cut the top off, buy some breathable paper bags sold online for covering fruits and attach the head to that. Not rocket science, at this price and specs I seriously doubt you can do better unless the unit is crap and dies in a month and Xiaomi takes a hit on goodwill. Edit ..Roborock when I bought it was Xiaomi now they have broken free except for the app…so I am guessing R and D is still funded by Xiaomi and if Xiaomi are selling 2 brands of the same product then the future is uncertain for the Roborock products. The software is what makes them such good offerings at this price. Either ways ..time will tell.. thanks again OP I reckon this is an absolute bargain

    awesome deal, it's cheaper than what I paid for my S5 a couple of years back… I absolute love it.

  •  

    Bit the bullet with this one. + 3% cashback.
    Need another vacuum for upstairs/carpet only.
    Been waiting for s5+ or S7 to be reasonably priced, but not seeing a lot of specials.

    I've had a S5 for 3 or 4 years now and it's absolutely awesome. His name is Robbie. It's been resurrected a few times(new fan, battery, wheel). Parts from ali-express were cheap enough. They seem to be becoming more expensive now. (Australia tax??)

    Hopefully Rosie will be on par.

    OMFG decision decision. I still using the Xiaomi gen 1. It still going strong and works really well. Just only replace the battery and it like new again.

    What should I do lol. I could use a second one for downstairs thou. Or I can wait till the next model comes out LOL

    •  

      Or wait till one after the one after that one.

    Last night I did a run of vacuum plus mopping, but I forgot to take off the mopping attachment when it finished. This morning I had it scheduled to do a vacuum of the whole house. I thought maybe it would error out and not run since the mopping attachment was still on. Well it ran and it looks like it went onto the carpets and it got stuck in multiple places it did not usually have problems with, no doubt due to the mopping attachment still on, but it not being set to mop
