[Amazon.ca] iRobot Roomba i7+ (7550) Robot Vacuum with Automatic Dirt Disposal $961.22

https://www.amazon.ca/iRobot-Roomba-Con ... 977&sr=8-3

Lowest price for this robot vacuum. I have had Aukey/Eufy, Roomba 660 and 700 series and currently Roomba 980, and Roomba's are basically the best. It's definitely pricey, but it's worth it. It's especially great if you have pets and want to minimize allergies. The price is also historic low. It's not for everyone. If you have no carpet or minimal carpet, Aukey/Eufy/Robovac and other similar brands are good enough. For anyone with significant amounts of rugs and carpet and pets, I highly recommend Roomba 960, Roomba 980, i7 or s9. The difference on carpet with Roomba vs virtually all other brands is DRAMATIC.

Do yourself a favor and buy a Roborock S5/S50 for 1/2 the price.

Good Morning
Roombas trademarked dual brush system and dirt sensor makes it top of the line for carpet.

I got a Shark IQ and it's pretty decent but much louder due to the single brush, but equivalent suction power. Still, at 1/4 of the price, this i7+ is top of the line. Wish I could afford it ahaha

I'd recommend giving this a watch and deciding for yourself which is the best: Vacuum Wars Best Robot for 2019.

All vacuums in this thread so far are mentioned in this review (the Deebot 907 isn't but the n79, 901 and 950 are).

You actually need both so you can vaccum while you exercise.

Except the roborock probably has a better house mapping and also has a mop.

The difference is the navigation system.

Roomba uses a camera bases system - you need to turn the light on in your room and it can take many runs to map out the room completely. Recent Roomba software update has added virtual no-gone zone (keep out zone), but it is not very accurate - the vacuum would avoid areas larger than what you drew. It is also limited to a rectangle with vertical and horizontal lines.

Roborock uses a laser based system - it can run in complete darkness (nice to let it run when you go to bed or when you leave the house). And basically, once you turn it on, it already generates a rough map of the whole room within seconds. And it takes usually only 1 run to map out the whole house.
Apart from virtual no-go zone (rectangle), it also has virtual wall/barrier line - which you can draw at any angle. And it is very accurate - you can make small adjustments to which areas to avoid and it would follow exactly.

I had one and returned it. Not enough suction to pick up much on my carpet. I ordered the shark from my Costco thread.

does it go around objects on the ground or it still bumps into them?
