iRobot vacuum Roomba 980, $699 after $200 discount on Amazon

I had a camel on the top of the line Roomba 980 and this seems one of the lowest prices for this vacuum. We already got it and we are pretty happy with it.

Is this better than the 2nd Gen Xiaomi I ordered yesterday?

Thanks. Feel better about my purchase.


Was actually closer to $320 cheaper for me with yesterdays eBay coupon.

Xiaomi is actually superior: it's not only cheaper but it comes with included surveillance. The bummer is that you may not have easy access to your own data but hey, somebody in China will be watching for you.

Get the xiaomi roborock s50 over the Roomba. I bought both in January and took the Roomba back because the xiaomi was cheaper, got stuck less has a higher probability of completing it's cleaning of my entire house. The xiaomi lidar system was more efficient then the roombas camera mapping.

On the flip side, if you really really want a Roomba this $200 off deal is probably the cheapest it will be for the near future.

Do they provide 24/7 monitoring or is it simply intermittent? Is the security only effective if someone steals the vacuum?

Today I bought the 980 at BBB. Regular price $899.99. Minus $50 off sale, minus $170 from 20 percent off coupon, and I got a $50 BBB gift card with purchase bringing down to $683.54 including taxes!! I was ready with a 2014 coupon not mentioning/excluding Roomba. It was a non issue as manager told clerk she honors the coupons. I didn't have to point the omission of Roomba out afterall. I was ready with old coupon after reading about that tip here on amazing SD.
