I had a Xiaomi Mijia robotic vacuum (precursor to the roborock) and it SUCKED, kept throwing the "main brush blocked" error every time it touched even medium-low pile carpet. After getting sick of dealing with it, I threw it out and and bought an Ecovacs Deebot with auto-cleaning base and obstacle avoidance. I've had the ecovacs for about a week now, and I've decided I'm going to return it, because, while it's way better than the Xiaomi one and does a great job cleaning, it still gets stuck all the damn time, and I can't "set and forget it" while I'm at work, which defeats the entire purpose of having it. The vacuum I think I want is the roborock T7 Pro, but that seems to be only available in china, and it only works with the Mi Home app, which I had to use for the Xiaomi and it was an awful awful app.
Once it got stuck, but that was because I hadn’t attached the dust bag properly, it wasn't clear to me I had to clean the inner fan. **Mop:** ⅕. Don’t get this for the mop. I sort of cleans but really the mop attachment is barely effective and it wasn’t a good confidence builder for me to even go buy the dedicated mop attachment.
I had a very early roborock that was a workhorse for 5 years ish and then I got a s9+ which was utter garbage but did do a very good pickup job when it wasn't deciding to give up on life underneath my couch or run out of battery a quarter through a job. The things that are attractive to me about the t9 aivi. - mopping (although I have seen the d9 I think it's called which looks to be the ecovacs competitor to the narwhal). - the dual brush rollers.
ECOVACS Deebot N8 Pro+ Review
Completely agree with everything you said. I recently bought a Deebot T9+. Lots of noise on here from people saying lots of bad things about the T8/9 but I’ve experienced none of it except for some difficulty with the bin auto emptying (I have a pet - I will try the DIY jack soon) other than that it’s a magnificent robot and the app has been great for me. I’m super happy and have no idea why anyone would pay a premium for Roborocks or Roombas over it.
New Home Owner, need vacuum regiment recommendations/purchase
It will vacuum and mop, empty its dust bin, and clean the mop pad. It won't completely replace a full mop or mopping machine, but given you have new floors, it may be perfect to help keep them that way. You only have to check on it for regular maintenance every couple of days, to a week or so, depending on usage.

Locating robot vacuum
I use an ecovacs deebot vacuum that definitely does not track its own location. The only sense of location it gets is when it is close to the charger which is transmitting an infrared beacon like signal that the deebot uses to figure out the best path to park and recharge.
Just received my S7 and it’s already a blast!
Yeah... I just returned my ecovacs deebot since it insists on throwing away the map after every cleaning session... One thing I cannot get get over with the S7 though is why they didn't include a camera, especially since the S6 had it. It's such a downgrade and makes no sence to me... If it weren't for the fact that the upcoming auto emptying bin isn't going to be compatible with the S6, then I would honestly concider buying the S6 instead of the S7...
Homebridge Robot Vacs
ECOVACS Deebot. It’s great. I can tell Siri to vac a specific room. Setup can be a bit cumbersome, but once you understand that the plug-in uses zero index it’s all good.
Do you trust your robot?
The first few times it’s really fascinating to see it do it’s thing. Reading the room and graciously brushing around chair legs and avoiding toys and stuff like that. My Deebot t9+ is brand new and I still like to follow it around. After a while you’ll learn if it has difficulties and how to prevent them.
Every mapping run takes 3-4 hours and so far there has always been something that messed up in the process. This morning I thought I finally had it but then it decided to get its wheel stuck on a super low-pile rug and the map was rotated 90° and then the vacuum couldn't find its way back to the charging station. At this point I'm ready to return it and wanted to see if there is something better out there.
