I have this vacuum and it is extremely good for a few narrow situations.

First off, unlike most robot vacuums, this does NOT have roller brushes on the bottom. It just sucks up dirt/hair/whatever without the use of roller brushes.

This is especially good if you have sensitive hard flooring, such as luxury vinyl planks, or certain types of wood, which can be damaged by roller brushes.

Because of this, it cleans very well on hard surfaces, but is fairly ineffectual in even low pile carpet. (does fine on area rugs that have almost no pile)

It also does very well with pet hair, because unlike other vacs with roller brushes, there are no rollers to get tangled up with pet hair. It just sucks the hair up.

The other side effect of having no roller brushes is that this thing vacuums forever. I have a roomba in my basement that has carpet, and this ilife upstairs with hard flooring, and the ilife vacuums for about 3X longer before running out of battery than the roomba. The roomba is newer, too... just got it during Prime Day this year. ilife is about a year and a half old.

So if you have a large area with hard flooring, and/or if you have pets in a hard floor area, and/or if you have hard flooring that is sensitive to damage, this is a very good vacuum for you.

Other observations:
-compared to the Roomba, this has some good AI that makes it vacuum more gently. One thing I've noticed is that my Roomba will straight bumper-car crash into objects. This ilife seems to have some kind of sensor where once it gets near a wall or furniture it slows down for the last inch or two before it hits. That's a nice feature.
-also compared to the Roomba, this ilife seems to do slightly less stupid stuff. Neither of my vacs have mapping, so both rely on AI random pathing. I observe the Roomba revacuuming the same areas far more often, though. The only exception to this is long hallways... I do have one long hallway in my hard floor area, and the iLife seems to like getting stuck repetitively vacuuming just that one area. It does eventually get out, and the 3X battery life I mentioned earlier makes this not a big issue. Worth mentioning, though.
-the iLife also has some cool pathing AI where it will find an edge (like a wall or counter) and then feel along it vacuuming along the straight line. Never observe my Roomba doing that... it tends to find a wall, and then bounce off of it at an angle, never actually vacuuming along the wall.

I have it too and exactly my thoughts I will also add its pretty decent at going back to its charging base. I have two dogs + hardwood floors and run it 3x a week

Thanks for taking the time to write about your experiences. Our Roomba (from a ridiculously cheap "like new" Amazon Warehouse deal that ended up being completely never used brand new) never seems to do that great on our hard (laminate) flooring, so we keep it (IR) walled off to just the carpeted living room. A really good hard floor vacuum is tempting to complement it.

I used to think robo vacuums were just a convenience/gimmick, but seeing how much more the Roomba vacuums up (and daily... since it spends an hour doing it at a reasonable pace, none of which I'd ever actually do myself, hah!) has kind of converted me.

I couldn't resist replying to this one bit though. Geeze our Roomba just... yeah. It's a little terrifying sometimes, lol. Violent little thing! I swear it probably even speeds up as it's approaching the coffee table.

Well, decided to get for my marble flooring. Hope it won't get lost in all that space.

Does anyone know if these get lonely and should be bought in pairs?

I have two. V5 $175 and v7 $120

They both work great

I think I like the v5 abit better then the v7 for pet hair and battery life. But there both great.

I didn't like the mop. It didn't help with my kids and dogs.

I have this with my very, very hairy husky who drops hair regularly in clumps and they turn into huge hair balls. It hasn't clogged since and I've been using it daily for the last 2 months. I do empty it daily though because it is so much hair during this season.

It does an impeccable job on my tile and vinyl plank floors but doesn't do anything for my carpeted rooms so I don't allow it to go into those rooms.
