XiaoMi Roborock S50 Smart Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2nd Gen (Auto Sweeping & Mopping) - $374 (No Tax) F/S

Very solid price and is comparable to Roomba 980 (Orig $899.99). If you can get pass the lack of warranty and buying from a legit Chinese site then this is a "great choice".
Also a lot cheaper than newegg's price at $427.50 + tax

Original Price: $389.00
Discount: -$15.00
Final Price: $374.00
(No tax)

The girl in the product photos looks like she's waiting to get intimate with the thing.

Lady, I'm guessing that Roborock doesn't mean what you think it does.

I have both Gen 1 and Gen 2, and it really comes down to a couple of questions. The main differences between the two are the following improvements to the Gen 2:

1. Increased suction power by 10% (1800 vs 2000 Pa)

2. Damp mopping function. Not a replacement for a good scrubbing mop, but if you deep clean your floors with a traditional mop, this does a reasonably good job of light mopping in between. Don't expect it to remove heavy soiling though.

3. Carpet-sensing mode. If noise annoys you, you can use this function so that the robot runs more quietly on hard floors, but ramps up the power when it detects that it is on carpet.

4. MUCH better performance on high pile/shag carpeting and rugs. The Gen 1 really was pretty useless on carpets like this, but the Gen 2 goes like a champ. This is due to the fact that Xiaomi re-engineered how the wheels retract into the body of the robot. They reversed them, and it makes all the difference.

5. The charging dock is about half the size of the original, so less obtrusive. You do lose the trick cord storage feature of the original though.

6. Larger storage bin. You know how, with your Gen 1 when you empty the bin, the generally empty space at the extreme edges of the bin that remain empty due to how the airflow moves through the filter? That's wasted space that is fixed in the Gen 2. Not only is the bin slight larger, but you can now effectively use MORE OF IT.

7. Washable HEPA filter. Reduces the need to buy replacements as often, so you save a few sheckles in the long term.

8. Cleaning tool storage on-board. Yeah, I know...a small thing. But, my Gen 1 cleaning tool went missing long ago. I can just pop to the tool for my Gen 2 back under the cover/lid when done so it never gets lost.

Initially, the Gen 2 also introduced the zone-cleaning feature, which is an absolute GAME-CHANGER. This has since been ported back to the Gen 1, so that is now a level playing field.

You just have to ask yourself if these improvements are worth the upgrade.

Here is a good comparison video between the Gen 1 and Gen 2:. https://youtu.be/FmXFOHPDfjg

English is not my first language, sorry if there is something you can't understand. I thought we were on a deals forum not on a language clAss.

Does it include a plug for North American outlets or will I need some sort of adapter?

Also for the mopping does it just drag a cloth around or does it have come sort of cleaning motion? I have dark wood floors that seem impossible to keep clean.

China use the same kind of plug so you bet.

This website is JD's US site. So it is legit. But not sure about warranty. If it was broken, we need to mail it to China to get fixed?

I have a older/cheaper Mi that just drags around a microfiber pad on its butt and sprays cleaner ahead of it, this is probably similar.

Great price, tho. I'm very tempted. I like my Mi, but never use it because I have to put my counter stools on the counter. Otherwise the damn thing will ride up the round chrome base and get stuck. Same with the round base on my recliner. I'm thinking this new model's laser guidance would prevent this.
