Read the reviews. The S9 is not that great. Neato beats it on certain floor types.

Roomba is so behind... I've sold mine and purchased Xiaomi 1s, with LiDAR. It is so much better...

450ish.

You can buy Roborock S5 from Canadian Amazon for a little bit more, it's basically the same plus mopping (which I don't need, personally)

How about reliability and warranty vs Roomba from Costco?

Can someone comment on the longevity of the battery?

my last iRobot (which was a basic model and it was a few years ago) lasted a year then the battery wouldn't hold a charge or something. New battery cost wasn't worth it.

I'm buying a more sophisticated, technically advanced vacuum with much more features and smart navigation for half a price in comparison to Roomba. I will be enjoying while using it, and yes, if something happens, I'll order parts from Ali and fix it.

Roomba has Costco warranty, yes. It doesn't make it to be a good robot vacuum though. I was tired of my Roomba - noisy, stupid, hits everything multiple times, randomly going back and forth.

I have the same product and used it for 2 years already and it's fantastic. Regarding warranty I have other xiaomi products but I have to contact them for warranty which they were extremely helpful but because the product was under $20 they did say to contact the vendor where I purchased it from. I bought that item from gear best which honoured the warranty. I feel like xiaomi may do it directly for a vacuum but don't know as I have never had issues with mine.

I've got the S7+ and it's great. Waiting for a deal for the braava M6 mop so the two can work in tandem
