Does it comes with any warranty and how to avail when needed?
Shipping took about 2.5 weeks. Went from China > HK > B.C > Winnipeg > Toronto. It shipped via Canada Post so luckily I didn't pay any duties or taxes. So far the Roborock has been great and pretty life changing. The mopping feature is decent. Too bad it doesn't support multiple floors but hope that gets updated with software. When I finish vacuuming the main floor then bring it up to the 2nd floor, it gets confused and thinks it's the same floorplan. Had to turn the "save map" feature off to fix this.

Not sure about warranty but I'm not expecting any.

They're apparently being sued by iRobot for this vac because of the self empty bin. The hardware looks to be there but I'm not so sure about software yet, hopefully they will continue to update it.
What do you mean about not producing any map? Why would you need the map?

I purchased it from www.sharkclean.com.

I don't expect to have to pay any duties, but if I do, I'll mention it here.

The mapping on the Shark won't be nearly as good as the Roborocks (it uses a camera instead of LIDAR), but on the plus side, it does come with an auto emptying base.

The Shark Website has it for $450, but for whatever reason, they charge Canadians the US price in CAD. They also initially charged me tax, but removed it when the unit shipped. I signed up for their mailing list which get me a 10% coupon. Final price was $405 all in.
You will pay the HST to your courier when it clear Canada Customs.

I didn't pay any additional taxes when I purchased my Shark stick vac a few weeks back.

When did you order, and did it ship? Was the tax charged initially or refunded after?
