$399 Neato D7 is a better value, in my opinion. Bigger bin and multi-floor mapping.
Returning my D7 for this. D7 has way too frequent navigation issues. I have also mapped my floor plan 3 times now and it always has trouble fetching the floor plan and complains about base being move when it has not even moved an inch. Hoping I have better luck with S5.

I, too, have the D7. It decided to quit working, long red button of death that comes on and won't shut off and screen will not power and it was only 11mo. It's taken a battery replacement, and almost over 2 mo for neato to finally approve a repair. I'm done with the brand. 2nd neato to have the red death light and never turn back on.

Thanks!! Ordered the S5, I almost pulled the trigger on the neato D7 from bbb but this seems to tick all the same boxes with better reliability (hopefully) and lower price.

First review I looked up mentioned setting up a vlan if choosing this brand for that reason. I just wanted more input on that.

Just ordered my 5th one for my sister. Ordered S4 few days ago for her. She tested and it kept getting stuck on her low profile rug. S5 never got stuck for me so hopefully it will work same for her.

I thought it was access to everything else done on your network that was the concern.

Maybe they will, don't buy it, have a peace of mind, also don't buy iPhone or any electronics, because chances are they are made in China

Use your guest network. Most of router supports a separate guest network, make sure you select it to not access your network or to each other devices using the guest network. You should do it anyway for guest in your house for security. S4 can be set up to guest network no problem, leave your phone connected to the main home network it works fine. The phone connects to the robot through cloud anyway. Some other robot won't do this and kept asking your phone and robot must be in the same network, S4 is not one of those.

What's the best mopping robot? We already have a iRobot i7.
Deebot 950, it's way smarter than S5. Or wait for S5 Max. I'm returning my S5 ($360) and keeping S4 ($299) despite S4 climbing barrier is lower than S5's, but S4 can select room for scheduling and only S5 Max will have the same room selection as S4 and S6, as well as the smart mop as Deebot 950, such as do not mop a rug which S5 currently doesn't. It doesn't look like that's a firmware upgrade can resolve and S5 Max feature already listed.

On the other hand, I have a roomba for carpet while I won't let S4 do. If you only have one robot, S5 might be a better option as it seems does better overall than S4 except the new room selection. I won't worry about the newer processor in S4/S6 than S5, Roborock/Xiaomi robots are already handling navigation much more efficient than the other robot especially the camera type such as roomba.

S4 software is still buggy though, I had to reset map just after two days of use. But i refuse to buy any new robot without room selection going forward.

FYI, the S6 will be on sale for $449 Dec 2-8 on Amazon.

The upgraded processor has slightly more efficient navigation and room selection. It can use the newer Roborock app which saves two maps.

There is a chance that S5 will be added to the Roborock app eventually. Overall, Vacuum Wars still prefers the S5.

Also see his positive review of the S5 after 10 months of use.

I doubt S5 will ever get the upgrade to have multiple maps and room selection although those sound like a software update, but can't recall where I read it, it's involved hardware too.

Anyway, S5 Max is coming with bigger water bin, smart mopping than S5/S6 dumb mopping, plus newer processor and room selection in Roborock app only, no longer can be used with Xiaomi app. S5 Max will have lesser number of sensor than S6, but if it's at discount of $450 sometime in the near future, I'll definitely get it than getting a S6, which is essentially a S5 with new room selection software update (though newer cpu), everything else is the same.

Another awesome feature S5 Max will come with is the pick up power level per room setting, it can change from turbo to quiet depending on which room it goes to, think about that for a moment. I now set S4 to go to different room at different schedule so each schedule has own power level, For example kitchen it'll clean more frequent than other rooms, and with high power. But late night living room will be in quiet mode. These are something can't be imaged with S5 or other dumb robot.

The s5 max seems to be the best of all reasonably priced vacs in the near future if you need lots of features including mopping and high profile carpet. Wish it could be had as cheap as the Nov presale of the EU model. But amazon will be much more convenient.
