Let the Roborock S5 sweep and mop your floors for $395 (save $105)

  Let the Roborock S5 sweep and mop your floors for $395 (save $105) That's the biggest discount to date on one of the top-rated robo-vacs.It did a great job overall, which is why I'm excited to share this deal (which is actually even better than the last time I shared it): For a limited time, and while supplies last, Amazon has the Roborock S5 all-floors vacuum for $394.99 with promo code ROBOROCKS55. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

Unlike so many robot vacuums its side brush does not scatter debris, also its exhaust doesn’t blow debris around, it doesn’t sound like a big deal but One major pro is its navigation and mapping. The Roborock S 5 uses a spinning invisible laser to map out your home, and it cleans in straight efficient

This is the new upgraded and improved S 5 Robot Vacuum from Roborock . They originally created the Xiaomi Mi Vac that was super hot and popular, and now this new model has some greatly improved features.

Earlier this year I remodeled my basement, and the resulting layer of crud made it the perfect testing ground for the Roborock S5 -- a robot vacuum that can also mop. It did a great job overall, which is why I'm excited to share this deal: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Amazon has the Roborock S5 all-floors vacuum for $369.99 with promo code ROBOROCKBF. That's $20 less than just a couple weeks ago and an all-time low. (Note that the above photo shows it in black; the deal is for the white one with rose-gold trim.)

I've owned early-generation Roombas and late-model Ecovacs, but the S5 is my favorite robot sweeper to date. That's largely because it seems smarter and more efficient than others I've tried.

The companion app, for example, gives you lots of cleaning options. You can set up virtual barriers, no-go zones, go-only zones and so on. All that's possible thanks to the S5's laser-mapping skills, which also allow it to clean in an orderly pattern, rather than just randomly bumping all over the place.

The S5 has a sizable battery, one that's good for around 2.5 hours of cleaning, according to Roborock. That comes at the expense of the dust bin, which is on the smaller side. Similarly, the water tank nets you only about 30 minutes' worth of mopping before needing to be refilled. (Thankfully, that was ample time to clean my basement, which is about 800 square feet.)

Engadget readers can save on iRobot Roomba i7 vacuums

  Engadget readers can save on iRobot Roomba i7 vacuums If the price of vacuum robots has kept you away from the tech, we may be able to help. We've partnered with Wellbots to provide Engadget readers with an exclusive discount on iRobot's high-end Roomba i7+ and i7 series vacuums. You can get the i7+ for $699, instead of $999, by using the code "ENGADGETBOT" at checkout, and the i7 for $499, down from $699, with "ENGADGETVAC". Effectively, this promotion allows you to buy the more expensive i7+ at the usual price of the i7. As with our previous Wellbots deal, there's no sales tax if you live outside of New York State.

As promised here's the mopping demonstration of the Xiaomi RoboRock . With our without the mop , this robot will go about it's business in similar fashion. Don't expect it to mop like a Braava but it's enough for maintenance cleanups if you Xiaomi Roborock S 5 - The Best Vacuum Robot of 2018?

Mi Robot Vacuum 2 Main Features: ● 2 in 1 Sweep and Mop - Double cleaning: sweep first and then mop the floor - The filter is root-inspired when the mopping pad is served as leaves to control water flow like a XIAOMI Vacuum Cleaner и Roborock S 50(Xiaomi MI Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2). Обзор.

CNET hasn't reviewed the S5, so I'll steer you over to Matthew Miller's review at ZDNet. Verdict: "A great performer at a price that is reasonable given its power, efficiency and utility." And that was based on a then-$464 Amazon price. (It's currently $500, but has been as high as $600.) Speaking of Amazon, over 200 customers collectively rated the robot 4.4 stars out of 5.

So, yeah, you may not know the Roborock brand, but in my estimation this is every bit as good as some of the latest Roombas -- with a much lower price.

This high-powered Dyson Ball vacuum is under $200 for today only .
It's Best Buy's top Deal of the Day.Now, a few things to note: It's unclear exactly which model this is in Dyson's line, so it's tough to compare pricing to equivalent models on Amazon (this one looks closest). And when we reviewed the Dyson DC41 -- which had a similar ball design -- way back in 2013, we weren't exactly blown away. But that was more than half a decade ago, and we were judging it at its list price of $649.
