Robot Vacuums

So, are these a meme or do they really save you alot of time on cleaning your house?
Had a roomba years ago and it was more work looking after it then it saved me cleaning my floors.
Recently been considering one again with mopping function. I read alot of positive stuff about Roborock, specifically the Q Revo seems to be right in my sweet spot for what you get for your money?
Anyone got experience with them and can tell me which ones are good?

    The mopping ones are the real meme.

    They’re a meme. Most of them are poorly built and horribly optimized. You’ll spend more time trying to trouble shoot and just sweeping the floor by hand. Not to mention they’re terrible at actually picking up dirt.
    Ince I realized this, I tore mine apart to use the LiDAR and other parts to make a robot with my 3D printer

      Robot platforms are really cheap these days so these things aren't really useful for that anymore.

    They are good for what they do. I never expected impeccably dust free carpets anyway, but my robot vacuum picks up anything I can see without getting like 5 cm close to the floor. I'd say that's pretty good. I also vacuum the floors manually like once a month because old habits die hard but believe it or not it's not a necessity. Even though I have a cat.

      Oh, one thing I want to add is that not all robot vacuums are created equal. I'm intentionally not mentioning any brand not to shill for free but you can probably tell that my robot vacuum ain't a roomba.

        Is there a real difference in cleaning power between the ones that cost $70 and the fancy $450 that self-charge and self-empty?

          Yes, there are drastic differences between robot vacuums in the same lineup even. The best thing you can do is reading reviews, and asking people who own a robot vacuum about their experience with that very specific model. I have some vague idea about the price-quality curve in my head, and I'd say spend at least $200 to get something that is not completely shit. Anything above that has meme features, their meme status depending on your perception about those features. For example, my robovac self-charging itself after running the automated cleaning routine is pretty convenient, I always come to a clean house, but you might see it as an unnecessary meme feature for that extra $300.

            the problem with the reviews seems to be that theres too many reviewers and they often dont come to the same conclusions which makes me suspicious that many of them are paid to shill some specific brand.
            Also the mass of products is almost impossible to oversee. Roborock alone has a sheer ton of robots. Finding the ones for your special case can take hours of research.

            could also be that the robots consistency is shit, or that the reviewers are really bad at making standarized reviews
            is the same crap in every sector, you cannot just know what to expect

    When are we making robo vacuums that don't only vacuum the floor but also vacuum my dick?

    just a reminder that there is an open firmware, https://valetudo.cloud/

      >open firmware
      that's not quite what it is. The firmware isn't modified. You won't get any new features that you couldn't have before.
      Valetudo is a cloud replacement. Using it you don't need an app to control your robot and it no longer needs to connect to external servers.
      Valetudo doesn't support every robot. And some of them require quite extensive work to be rooted. So if you want to use it, read up on the supported robots first.

      I am using it and can recommend it.

    I got one, it cleans up at 6am every day. It doesn't have fantastic suction, but it works every day so it's not picking much up anyway
    Things to consider, you need to keep the floor clear. if you share a flat or have children, forget it. You'll just get pinged that it's stuck on something

    Mopping is mostly a meme unless you literally have no carpets. The ones that mop via just dragging a mop behind them don't really do much but the ones who have better focus on mopping is ridiculously expensive.
    I got one not long ago, a DreamQ D10s Plus. Was a good deal for them so not too expensive but still on the higher end. The main benefit is that it will always run once a week whereas I was far too lazy to pull my cleaner around once a week.

    As long as you are fine with selling your floor plan to the Chinks then I say get one. Vacuuming yourself isn't hard or that time consuming but a robot just removes that part altogether which is comfortable. Plus the one I have does a stellar job and I only have to manually clean some spots it can't reach.

    My house is all tile and I have dogs so I need to run it once a day to keep up with the hair. If I let it go a week or so the thing just gets stuck under a couch or something. If I had carpet I wouldn't buy one. But if you have tile or hardwood floors and need it to control pet hair it's pretty nice.
    Downside is that pretty much every day you need to flip it and clean out whatever hair is stuck in the brushes.

    no, they work really good. I got a cheap (~$200) one for my wife and it picks up even fine dust really well. major downside is that it was a Chinese rug pull so when the company shut down the app stopped working completely. the robot still works but I can't see the map of the house, set a schedule, or anything like that. if you care about that shit just BUY AMERICAN don't be a israelite

      Implying that American companies don't do the exact same thing.

      If you want something that lasts, maybe consider one THAT ISN'T CLOUD-BASED.

    They work pretty good.
    While they don't do a thorough clean, they drastically reduce the quantity of dirt in the house, because you can have it clean every day.

    they are good for general upkeep if you have large, rooms without too much furniture. also you must get self emptying one that's also easy to disassemble for cleaning. otherwise you end up spending just as much time rescuing/emptying the robot.
