Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum $319

I couldn't be more impressed with this robot vacuum. After testing every high end model in the Roomba lineup, a Neato, and a couple of the highest ranking Chinese robot vacuums available on Amazon Prime, I settled on the Xiaomi Mi purchased via Walmart.com a couple of months ago. The mapping and detail of this unit is unmatched and it climbs over the thickest of rugs/carpets with ease. I recommend this vacuum to anyone willing to spend the money, especially if you're considering a high end Neato or Roomba.

$319 marked down from $388.

This wasn't on my radar before; so thanks. I found a nice review and comparison here:http://www.vacuumsguide.com/xiaom...m-cleaner/

The big downside seems to be the app. It's in Chinese (don't know if this is still the case).

It also seems to be $50 cheaper on geekbuying, but I don't know what the shipping cost is. Just checked, it's $60+ for s/h; so geekbuying is not a good deal overall

I use the app daily, it's all in english now! Works like a charm.

Crappy manufacturer. Has problems with exploding/burning batteries. This is essentially the same price as a much better and more reliable Roomba 805 from Costco with a full return policy and no fire risk.
provide source of your information.

Where is your link to exploding batteries in Xiaomi Mi vac? You can't compare totally different things like high density lithium batteries in phones with lithium batteries used in vacs. With your comment are you also saying that Samsung and Apple (Foxconn) also crappy manufacturers,just because their. batteries were exploding too?

The information is out there. It's been an ongoing problem with many of their products because it's a crap knockoff manufacturer, but for the last year or more they have been making people sign NDAs to get compensation when there's a battery fire, etc. Yeah, only in China, right?

Here's a recent story about one of their new phones that caught fire that talks about their policy of trying to shut people up about their fire problems with batteries:

I'm assuming you know how to shop at Costco to verify the comparable price of a MUCH BETTER and MORE RELIABLE, NON-EXPLODING Roomba 805.
You sound like a one of those sales representatives of Roomba at Costco

Chinese robovacs should be much more affordable than this considering 5 years ago this was the regular price of a Roomba or Neato. Somehow robovacs have become expensive recently, which goes against the trend of technology generally getting more affordable.

Did you READ the article I linked to? Xiaomi has taken to shutting up chinese who have problems with batteries exploding/catching fire across their product lines. It's been going on for a while.

Samsung/Apple have SUBSTANTIALLY more liability selling product in the USA, so you can bet you're better protected with them or (staying on point) iRobot Roomba. Chinese companies make lots of stuff on foreign spec (apple/Samsung, etc) and on China (cheap, corner-cutting) spec for their own stuff. If you buy this crap Chinese knockoff robot vac from a crap company like Xiaomi that would rather cover up the problems than fix them, you're asking for trouble. There's no liability protection buying a Chinese product direct, and this is a known risk.

I guarantee those Costco Roomba sales reps have no idea what a Xiaomi Mi is. Ask them.

This company is spreading itself out with all these various consumer electronic devices. I wouldn't trust their quality.
