I think so; it's typically a $400-500 robot.

Unless you're getting a LIDAR robot or one with self-emptying capability, it really isn't worth paying a premium for a non-Roomba robot. I've gone through about 7 'off brand' robot vacuums in about 6 years and have found that you're best off with one of the well-reviewed 'dumb' ones for around the $200 mark, or paying the premium for LIDAR and self-emptying like the Shark one that goes on sale, or the Roomba if you have deep pockets. Things like Wifi enabled, mopping, Alexa obeying features are all pretty trash, as are the camera-navigation models. Wifi and app controls are basically just there to clutter your phone and upload your user data to their offshore servers and really serves no purpose beyond what a remote would do; you're typically going to schedule cleaning for the vacuum and just leave it - you don't need to interact with it every day once that's done, and if you do, you're probably just hitting the 'go' button before you head off to work. SLAM cameras don't work when they're under furniture and the mapping algos suck, they always end up getting crooked and then the navigation gets less and less accurate and most of them delete the mapping any time it gets stuck somewhere and drains the battery. Mopping features are just useless and take up dustbin space.

Are you referring to the Shark IQ Robot Self-Empty that's going on sale (cantire $379)? As far as dumb ones what one would you recommend?

Thanks

Canadian Tire also has this on clearance for $249-349.

This is an entry-level VSLAM bot that maps room layout by taking images of the ceiling. $799 is definitely inflated. Cold deal considering Deebot D4 LIDAR bot with way better navigation and app was on sale for $299 a few weeks ago.

Well, vacuum robots are about pretty trash, ain't they?


> Mopping features are just useless and take up dustbin space.

Utter nonsense. Mop and you'll never go back unmopped.
