Just popping in to give my usual thumbs up for this product. Much better than my (admittedly older model) Roomba.

I have the old one and the new one. The 1st gen is a better vacuum... i mainly wanted the new one for mopping, but i did notice that the 1st gen always picks up more dust/dirt than the new one. I could be wrong though, since I have 2 bots my house could just be much cleaner...

Good input. I only have 2nd gen for 2nf floor. Considering getting the old one for 1st floor but hesitate to do so because our 1st floor is a mix of tiles and carpets with a step down living room and multiple dog barriers...

Right, I ordered 12/28.....and still waiting with no answer and no actual real tracking rather than them claiming stuck in customs.....others who ordered received it, I am just saying my particular experience......so be warned with Gearbest

Update: Gearbest is sending new part out! They did address my concern on their private website. They don't send regular emails, so it may appear that they don't care! My brother bought a vac too and has had great service! Thanks Gearbest!

My vac arrived from Gearbest a week ago, but vacuum had an Error 1 with laser fault. That means vacuum is useless until part is replaced. Laser costs $100 or warranty shipping item back to China at OUR expense. My other Xiaomi vac that I purchased a month ago from another seller worked just fine. I opened up a support ticket with Gearbest but have been ignored so far. They're email says they reply in 24 hours, but this has not happened over 7 days. I checked again yesterday, but they still haven't replied. I will update you guys if they do provide good customer service. For now, please stay away from this company which maybe selling faulty units. If Gearbest is listening, please respond to ticket
WT18011401018. Thank you!

Heard the shipping is horrible and that's the only reason I am cautious with shopping on Gearbest or Geekbuying or whatever. Would rather spend a little bit more on fast secure delivery

This is a piece of crap compared to a Roomba 805 available for less than $50 more at Costco on sale. It's similar to somewhere between a much older Roomba 6xx series and an early 7xx series. Wait for the Costco 805 to go on sale again and leave this Xaomi junk in China.

I did receive it after a long wait and it is actually on par with the roomba 980 (I own both). oh, and both are made in China btw
