Priced at $99.99, but if you are a cheap b*stard like me, use coupon code GEEKBUY1 for an extra $1 off. Also, make sure you are using "US stock" when ordering to get this price. Paypal is an option. I ordered and received a message stating shipping in 2-7 business days, so should be here well before Christmas.
Was poking around looking for a deal on a Robotic Vacuum for Christmas and stumbled across this one. I hadn't heard anything about this so started researching (there are some vids on YouTube if you search "Haier Xshuai"). For those unaware, Haier is the largest appliance company on the planet, based out of China. Obviously this is not going to be equivalent to a Roomba 980 or Xiaomi Mi at this price point, but it does have some interesting, albeit arguably useless features.
In researching this vacuum, it is wifi-enabled and reportedly Alexa compatible using the "Huiba" skill. It has a single spinning brush (I wish it had 2....) and two beater brushes underneath (tough to find at this price point)...one rubber and one with traditional bristles. Comes with a mop attachment which looks to be very rudimentary.
For whatever reason, this vacuum has a built-in camera on the front with a speaker and microphone in case you are interested in running your vacuum first-person, with two way communication to torment your pets, while on the other side of the planet. It also apparently has night-vision. So you can vacuum at night. And stuff.
Does have drop sensors and collision sensors which are typical even at this price point. It is reportedly very quiet, which is nice. Lithium ion battery lasts 2-3 hours from the reviews I have seen. Has spot cleaning, edge cleaning, and "z-pattern" cleaning (basically just back and forth in straight lines). HEPA filter. Extra spinning brush and cleaning tool included. Reviews seem to be OK on Amazon (4.1 out of 5).
I don't have any experience with geekbuying.com, so I can't speak to their customer service, but this is about the cheapest name brand model I've seen yet...sub-$100 for an entry model robotic vacuum seemed like a no-brainer so thought I would share here. Looks like this price is good for about another 24 hours, through December 1st. If anyone has experience with this model, would be happy to hear feedback!
