I got this on the last deal and had it for ~3 days. This thing is real deal holyfield; i love waking up to a clean floor. It smartly covers every inch and the phone app w/ map routes is insane.

You mean that you got the shipment in 3 days ? Do they ship from US ?

I got mine recently and love it as well.

A couple things I wish it did: would be nice to get an alert whenever the vacuum runs (I. E. When my wife uses it while I'm at the office). And I wish the zone sizes can be expanded when doing a zone clean up (at least I haven't figured out how to do it) . I do realize you can do up to 5 zones at a time, but I still can't get all the coverage I need that way.

I tested the scheduled cleaning yet.

I bought this from the newegg deal at the beginning of the month. They shipped it to the wrong state, then took a week to ship out the replacement. And that was only after I contacted them for a 3rd time..

Send that pos back. It's a joke compared to this.

Just to share some info on my experiences with the Ecovac Deebot OZMO 930 (which somebody way back in another thread recommended) versus the Roborock S50 (which I got from Ebay 20% off sale). I have had them both for about a week.

Ecovacs Deebot OZMO 930:
Pros -
- Once it builds the map, it is permanent in the app. Roborock builds a map each time it starts.
- You can name areas and then when you select "Clean Area" you just pick them from the map and the vacuum gets them without having to draw anything boundaries.
- Since the map is permanently known and the areas with carpet/rugs are already mapped, the mopping avoids those areas without the need to add virtual walls or magnetic tape (huge time saver and benefit if you have mixed flooring or even just rugs on your hardwood). Put the mopping detachment on and press go! The unit knows it has the mop attachment installed, you don't have to change anything in the app.
- Virtual walls and areas to avoid are actually drawn in the app (for instance I avoid three small rugs in my bathroom by just drawing a square around them in the app). These areas to avoid stay with the map permanently. The Roborock you have to use magnetic tape to form a "virtual wall".
- Mop water adjustments are made in the app. 4 different levels of water, no choice in Roborock.
- Has a brush-less attachment, which is great for hard wood or carpets that aren't supposed to be brushed (like wool carpets)
- Two side sweeper brushes (and they are long) compared to the one short side brush on the Roborock.
- The App is just for the vacuum and is straightforward. Roborock has TONS of other junk in the app to mess with. Great if you have a bunch of Xiaomi stuff but who does in North America?
- You get 4 extra side brushes, a spare roller and a spare filter in the OZMO package
- I hear the support is pretty good and there is essentially no support for the Roborock outside China.

Cons-
- Navigation is less smart. It clunks into quite a few walls and doors at nearly full speed. It gets lost even though it has the map of the floor. Seems to get most lost when it is starting to go back to recharge. It will go into random rooms and just totally miss the turns needed. Not sure how it works so much better finding the different rooms it needs to vacuum and then can't get back to the room with the base station without wandering all over the place.
- It gets stuck under beds because it keeps fighting to get under them instead of realizing it is hitting things with the LIDAR scanner. The Roborock has a button attached to the LIDAR that knows if it is being hit.
- The LIDAR is on the back and that allows the unit to get almost all the way under things and then get stuck which tips up the vacuum so the rollers have no traction and then you are truly stuck. I have just drawn virtual boundaries around everything that it gets stuck under and that has been working decently well.
- The actual brush area / suction opening is ~33% smaller than the Roborock, which means more passes to clean a specific area.

Roborock
Pros-
- Price is ~$450 versus OZMO 930 at ~$550. OZMO does give you a bunch of replacements parts in the package though.
- Navigation seems smarter. It can go under a table with 6 chairs and figure out how to navigate around pretty well and then get back out. I have seen the OZMO bounce around for 30 minutes under the same table.
- Seems to approach walls/doors/tables/etc slower and bump into them softer instead of ramming at full speed. Nice if you plan on vacuuming at night and don't want it to sound like your house is being broken into for the next hour!
- It breaks your floor plan into multiple smaller areas and vacuums them completely before moving on. Helps make sure it worries about small chunks instead of mapping everything perfectly before getting started.
- I think it has higher suction power than Ozmo (sure sounds loud when you put it on MAX)

Cons-
- No brush-less attachment, I haven't experimented with just taking out the brush and seeing how well it works, may be an option.
- Only one, relatively short side brush for sweeping edges.
- Makes a brand new map every time it starts. Annoying because you can't setup boundaries in the app because the map is only temporary. Maybe a positive if you plan on picking the vacuum up and dropping it off on different floors of your house regularly.

In short, I am torn. If Roborock would build persistent maps into the app and allow true "virtual" boundaries (meaning you draw them in the app instead of laying down ugly magnetic tape), the vacuum would win in every category. In the end, I think I like the Roborock for all carpeted areas and the Ozmo 930 would win if you planned on using the mopping feature regularly. I think it would be easier for Roborock to copy some of the nice "software" features of EcoVacs then Ecovacs figuring out how to navigate better and modifying hardware (like moving the LIDAR to the middle).

As far as I know no warranty on this one, Roborock provides warranty only if bought from their Amazon page http://en.roborock.com/wheretobuy.php

I'd be glad if someone proved me wrong.

In the app, when the zone pops up, you can drag it around if you place your finger and hold in the center ot the square, and you can resize the square by dragging the little circle icon with the arrows, on the bottom right of the dotted-line zone square

I purchased this from gearvita the other day, it still hasn't shipped. Should I cancel and get it from Newegg? It's the exact same one correct?

Really interested in this, too. Got the roomba 960 based on a thewirecutter [thewirecutter.com] recommendation and because of the better/easier warranty and google assistant support.
But after a comment above, the buyer's remorse is starting to quick in.
