Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum $279.99

+3 Deal Score

Been reviewing this vacuum for some time since it's release and this is the lowest I've seen to the "msrp" of $249.

Gearbest has it for $359.99

Any thoughts? The vacuum itself is very highly rated and appears you can get english instructions through the app. My concern is purchasing it through geekbuying or gearbest.

God! Do any Chinese companies come up with their own design? They copied the lidar design from Neato and round shape design from iRobot and combined them.

tending to agree. posted the deals to get some feedback on the retailers. appears the product itself is pretty good.

appears to be highly rated and reviewed, especially for the price. designed to compete with neato and roomba's at a much lower price point.

that being said, not quite sure why it hasn't been readily available unless purchased through these sites.
