Roborock S8 Review: Great, But There Are Better Options

News

The Roborock S8 robot vacuum has a number of advantages. After thoroughly trying the device for over a month, I can certainly state that it is extremely effective, but only for specific users. It has certain negatives to consider, including a higher-than-expected price.

Since its introduction in the late twentieth century, robotic cleaning technologies have advanced significantly. You no longer have to worry about batteries running out of charge in a matter of minutes or not having enough suction to complete the task. And, while there is still a considerable risk, these devices are becoming less likely to fall a set of steps as navigation and mapping technologies improve.

Performance:

Roborock is a Chinese consumer goods firm that manufactures handheld cordless stick vacuums and robotic sweeping and mopping equipment. It was founded in 2014 and has achieved a strong market presence. Its success can be due to its commitment to creating creative items that appeal to a wide range of demographics.

The company’s S8 robot line has three models: the entry-level Roborock S8, the mid-range Roborock S8+, and the flagship Roborock S8 Pro Ultra. Like previous generations, these robots build on one another, with additional features added as you progress up the ladder. While all three devices vacuum and mop, only the Roborock S8+ and Roborock S8 Pro Ultra include self-emptying dust bins. From there, only the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra offers auto mop washing and drying.

The Roborock S8 is the company’s entry-level model, although it is far from substandard. It should not be called “budget-friendly” because it is not a budget option.

The Roborock S8, which is available in black and white, is a self-cleaning robot vacuum. It has a round shape and is quite tiny, measuring 13.8 by 13.9 by 38 inches and weighing 10.8 pounds. With only three physical buttons—one for power, one for returning the machine to its dock, and one for spot cleaning—it is straightforward to use right out of the box. However, you should definitely do so with the Roborock app, which I discuss in detail below.

The Roborock S8, like other recent robot vacuums, uses advanced technology to explore your home without clashing with walls or objects on the floor. This incorporates 3D structured light and infrared imaging, LiDAR navigation, and other features. It also uses this technology to create a digital map of your home, allowing the device to calculate the best cleaning path.

The Roborock S8 has a battery capacity of 5,200mAH and a run time of around 180 minutes. When the battery is nearly discharged, the machine returns to the charging dock. When completely charged, it resumes its present cleaning job when applicable.

Manual Maintenance:

One disadvantage of traditional robot vacuums, such as the Roborock S8, is the need for frequent maintenance. Unlike all-in-one systems like the Roborock S8+ and Roborock S8 Pro, you must manually clear the dust bin (and refill the water tank). The frequency with which you do this is determined by the amount of filth on the floor and the size of the mopping surface. You will also need to remove the mop on sometimes to clean it. Although this technique takes little time, it can be messy. Cleaning the dustbin is especially hard for someone with allergies.

Aside from that, you’ll need to inspect the robot on a regular basis and clean away any residue that has accumulated over time. To clean up, I use a small amount of water mixed with vinegar.

Conclusion:

The biggest drawback of the Roborock S8 is its price and how it compares to other options in the S8 family. When looking at the best robot vacuums on the market, there’s no denying the Roborock S8 is very expensive. And, depending on whether you can find a sale price, the Roborock S8+, for example, isn’t much more than the Roborock S8—and for that, you get a dust bin that cleans itself automatically. Beyond this, they’re nearly ide
