I'm still liking mine too. Suction doesn't seem to be a problem and battery life is pretty good. I agree, it sometimes misses the dock slightly so then it's not fully charged for the next time I want to run it.

Finally bought the Roborock S5 on sale a few weeks ago. It's 1000 times better than our old Ecovacs Deebot N79S.
The mapping technology helps us prevent it from going places where it could get stuck and makes sure it cleans more efficiently. It's also way better at cleaning our carpeted floors I believe because it has a little more clearance from the floor. This model does have a mop attachment but I'm not sure how to prevent it from trying to mop my carpeted floors so I haven't used it yet.
I'm super happy with it, mostly because of the features that prevent it from getting stuck. That allows us to run it when we aren't home. I think a bunch of the Roborock models are still on sale right now

You're going to make Corey robo envy of you.

I'm still rocking my $100 one. Does it get stuck, lost, or not home half the time? Yes. Do I still appreciate it? Yes.

Mine actually does really well. It went through a phase where the bumper would get stuck and that would cause it to stop, but it hasn't done that in weeks. Now it does the entire cleaning with no problem and makes it back home. Best $100 robot vacuum ever.

We did put our old one in the basement (not finished) and it has done really well down there. Just needed a change of scenery!

Of course they announce this after I finally shell out $300+ for a new one. Doesn't ship until January 2021 though

I think bmyoungs ordered it.
I'm going to continue living with bad ones. As long as I never have a good one I won't know what I'm missing.

I did order it. I'm kinda annoyed it'll be January before it comes. But I guess if a better one goes on sale this month I'll get that and cancel the preorder

Nice. I'm interested to see how it works for you. So far I'm still really happy with my Roborock S5 but if this one is anywhere near as good I'm going to have buyer's remorse!

I talked myself into the Wyze one with help from Brad. Seems like it is a rebranded Roborock S4+. Will be my 4th? robo vac and first one with real mapping.

Also used a code for extra $20 off

Brad, do we get a free v3 can with our vacuums? If talks about some kind of tiers for the first 20k buyers and it's currently at 18k. I didn't select anything at checkout though

I am getting so annoyed with my $99 ones docking but not charging. I'm going to quickly become a believer in "good" ones if the Wyze docks and charges consistently.
