I can't compare other than that on paper they seem to have similar specs and both have LIDAR. As with many products, early reviews suggested that there were some bugs to be worked out on the Wyze but I haven't checked to see if those are still around. The Roborock has been around longer so it has that going for it.

I couldn't wait for the Wyze since it was on back order so I got an S4 Max and my wife and I absolutely love this thing. It's so precise due to the LIDAR that it puts my in-laws Roomba to shame.

You can also control it like a little remote control car via the app if you want to tidy up a little spot or you can designate a specific area or room for it to clean. It literally gets to any area that is reachable so it's kind of cool to see it work, though I'd imagine any other robovac with LIDAR to be similar.

The last time this was posted some people pointed out that Roborock is a Chinese company. So are many others, but if you are worried, then you can always create a guest network on your router to keep the robovac separate from the rest of your online traffic and devices.

That's what I did out of caution and because I was curious to see if my router was able to have a guest network.

For anyone that gets one, I set it up via the iOS app, so Android may be different slightly, but here are some tips that will make you not spend two hours setting everything up like I did.

- the S4 Max can only connect to 2.4ghz WiFi. If you have a router that puts out both 2.4 and 5ghz under a single SSID, then you will need to temporarily disable your 5ghz for the robot to connect. If you have separate SSIDs for 2.4 and 5ghz then make sure to connect to 2.4.

- you will need to enable all permissions for initial setup otherwise it won't work. Once you are done setting it up, you can disable all of them and the robot will continue to work fine. You just need them for the initial setup.

Not that anyone gives a crap, but we named ours Herbie because, well...he just kinda looks like his name would be Herbie. Though I just realized he has a female voice so it doesn't really make sense but then again lots of things don't.

FYI, the only difference of max is 40ml larger dustbin. Battery is exactly the same.

I've got the S5 Max. I'm actually very happy with it, but at the end of the day I wish I had sprung for an S6 MaxV series with a camera on the front and AI to recognize small obstacles. The S5 often gets hung up on various power cords around my desk and by my stereo. I've managed to mitigate it somewhat by setting invisible walls around where the cords are, but think it would be much easier if the vacuum could handle random clutter better on its own, especially if I want to run it while I'm out of the house so I can have more peace and quiet while I am home.

Also S4 Max's clearance is taller than the S4 original. Thus the S4 Max works better on our medium-pile carpeting compared to our original S4.

Uggh, I just ordered the Wyze robot vacuum last week because I was impatient and couldn't wait for this to go on sale again. Anyone compare the two and have real world input?

Looks like they're all on sale. S6 is the most discounted. Any advice on model?

I would personally wait for their next gen S4 or S5 lineup which generally incorporates the higher end tech from the previous gen

Recently got one of these for a similar deal and I have to say I absolutely love it. It's not perfect and will have the rare hiccup, but the app is so good and the smart features were exactly what I was looking for. Very satisfied with my purchase. If you're on the edge about it, I'd go for it.
