Reviewer Photos & Videos
Navigation is brilliant, easy to use. I have learnt more about Xiaomi since we bought this product and at first I had my doubts being a Chinese product. But the other reviews confirmed it for me and now I am writing one of my own. I have set it on a schedule to run each morning and it picks up a suprising amount of dirt each day. The mop function is good, it won't do a deep clean, but if you started with clean floors and ran it each day, it would do a good job of maintaining them...
I LOVE IT!
I use my Roborock S5 on floating floor boards & carpet. It works beautifully on both surfaces.
The convenience & simplicity of the app is incredible. I don't even have to be home to vacuum.
Setting up no mop zones is great & easy to adjust.
For the amount of money the robo vac/mop cost, it is well worth it. More time to do what you want & the vacuuming still gets done well.
It is amazing. I will never get another regular vacuum again. Highly recommended.

Changed my life for the better!
I’ve been wanting to buy a Robo Vac/mop for a while now, but could never justify the expense. Once my tax refund came in, I thought I’d take the plunge. I did a lot of online research trying to find the best machine possible and came across the Roborock S5 max. It didn’t disappoint. I use it every day and love coming home to a clean floor. It’s worth the 5 star review.

Lifechanging! No idea how I've gone this long without it!
I bought the S5 Max on a whim one night after yet another day of cleaning the entire house and vacuuming and mopping the floors. It arrived within a few days to Perth (super fast) and was packaged well. Setup was easy and instructions thorough. In all honesty I expected this to keep the bulk of the floor mess to a minimum and to do a 'top up' vacuum with my Dyson weekly or fortnightly - that was a win for me. Before using for the first time I vacuumed and mopped the entire house thoroughly and assumed that the S5 wouldn't pick up much but just ...'map' the house. It mapped my entire house thoroughly in 90 mins - I noticed the floors seemed super clean and clear so I checked the S5 tank - IT WAS FULL. It picked up MORE than my Dyson did first go and on the medium suction! I have had this for a month now and use it daily it has CHANGED my life. I can walk barefoot and feel nothing underfoot, it takes care of the hair and tumbleweed on the hard AND carpet floors from my 4 cats. Gets the trail of dust in the edges of the floor with ease. I haven't had to manually vacuum in a month! Mopping features are good if you mop thoroughly before first mop however don't expect it to pickup spills entirely. I have been raving about this to everyone - BUY IT!!!

Went from doubtful to absolute convert
Bought this vacuum for $750 and was very much on the fence. It's a lot of money and I should just not be lazy and actually vacuum every week or two. However decided to buy and am absolutely converted. It picks up so much. The floors feel clean when walking in bear feet. It also forces us to keep the floor a bit more clear so our general tidiness has improved. We have mostly hardwood floors so robot vacuums generally work well on that floor type. A few rugs that also seems to work fine. A dog that sheds so plenty of dog hair and dust to he vacuu...med up. We also have a baby just starting to crawl and she was constantly covered in dog hair before we got this vacuum since we wouldn't vacuum manually often enough. That problem is largely solved since we've been using the robo vacuum. Also a big fan of the app and control available. The vacuum creates a map of the house, you can create and name rooms, clean by room, clean by zone, spot clean if you've just made a mess in a particular spot. Now am recommending robot vacuums to everyone.

This Roborock vacuum cleaner is fantastic, and makes cleaning the house so easy.
The Roborock S5 Max mapped the whole house. It was then easy to zone the rooms off.
I use the Roborock to vacuum the floorboards and tiled bathroom most day 150 sqm takes about 90 minutes)
I have used the mop function on the tiled area.
This is a fantastic machine that keeps the house so clean.

Better than I expected.
Does the job well. This is our first robot vaccuum. We set it up 3x/week and we totally appreciate how clean the floors and carpets are. Most of the time, it can get out of a sticky situation. It has only been stuck once while vaccuuming through the bath mat. We haven't used the mopping function yet.

Much better than I expected
I only have timber floors and tiles. I love the mapping and that I can choose where to vacuum, in which order and where to mop. The mop is more like a wet dusting cloth and leaves the timber floors feeling clean and no streaks. Also reaches under beds etc. I also love that I can sit at work and decide to vacuum the kitchen...or the whole house. I use it much more than I expected because it is so easy.

Changed my life.so easy and efficient
Love that it mops as it vacuums our tiles in living area and when it does the bedrooms and lounge room it gets right under the bed and under the lounge. The app is fantastic, easy to use and very easy to set it to clean either rooms or a particular zone.

Fantastic tool that saves me lots of time
Roborock became a fantastic replacement of my old (stupid) Philips robot vacuum. Instead of bumping in walls it scans the property with lidar sensor, builds a map and then you just choose what room to clean or direct it to clean all rooms. It fast and cleans really well, better or comparable to my regular Dyson vacuum, but takes zero time and none of my own energy. To be honest I forgot about cleaning floors. I don’t have pets so don’t know how it handles that. Only cons is that you need to attach/detach mop before it goes to carpeted room. Wou...ld be great if you make a software update when it first goes to rooms with carpets with dry cloth and then to other rooms where it mops the floor so you don’t have to attach/detach it. Anyway I’m happy with it and rate it 5 out of 5.

Delighted with Roborock S5 Max
I am delighted with the cleaning suction of Roborock S5Max especially as we have a dense mid height pile carpet. Roborock has no problem transitioning from tiles to the high carpet. It’s quieter than other robot vacs and doesn’t collide into skirting boards. I like the mopping function a lot. I use it Friday and Monday mornings. The only suggestion I have to the Company is to post some tutorials on how to go about mapping/customising on YouTube instead of relying on private individuals.

Changed my life....where have you been!!
I have set this everyday @9.30am and come home to a clean floor everyday! Just amazing. I empty the dustbin every second day, amazing what gets collected!! It works great on my tiles & shag rugs. The mopping is great, streak free. You do need to invest in extra mop pads. I now have 3, I use the mopping 3 times a week. House floor is constantly spotless including laundry & bathroom. Now I'm going to invest in one for upstairs!! Such a life changer!!
The App is very easy to use & I've used features such as spot clean & zone clean too.

Love it! Beach and 3 furry animals no match
We run it 3 times a week on hardwood floors with a few low pile rugs. Golden Retriever and 2 furry cats and near beach. It tackles it all.
Only complaint is emptying the waste container is a bit fiddly. Too many place for dirt/sand to get stuck. Could be more streamlined.
One additional complaint (sorry) is that the App is not great or user friendly. Wouldn’t be hard to improve.
Note: Haven’t tried the mop yet

Best. Purchase. Ever.
This amazing product is a dream come true!! I have two pugs who shed hair and the Roborock cleans the hair perfectly on both polished floorboards and carpet. It is quiet and efficient. I like how you can select different zones and rooms to be cleaned at the touch of a button. The app is easy to use. I am so so so happy!

My new best friend
I love my Roborock S5Max. My family were reluctant at first but the tiled floor comes up clean with the vacuum and mop. I still haven’t worked out exact no mop zones for my rugs and I might have to purchase the Roborock magnetic strips which at the moment are unavailable. Normal magnetic strips don’t work. I also have a one level home. Also great as you have to declutter your house and floors so Roborock doesn’t get caught on cords etc.
I am not particularly techno or computer savvy and easily managed to work Roborock. I found Utube more helpfu...

Used on a hardwood floor with some loose carpets plus one room that has fitted carpet. I am amazed by the amount of dirt it picks up. The carpet cleaning is excellent. Navigational skills are also good. What surprises me most is the dirt it can find after I have thoroughly vacuumed (with a Dyson)
Now I leave those areas to the robot.

Beyond my expectation
This is a great product. With well thought designs and great functionality, I can see how much love the designer has put on this product. If you check the details of all the parts and the measurements, you’ll be surprised how refined the product is.
It does not get trapped with long hair when my Dyson does. It is also more intelligent than I expected. The app is also easy to use with added functionality from the release of S6 Max.

Questions & Answers
Can it run over a water spill? Say like in bathrooms after someone has had a shower?
I want to purchase this to use during the night, as I cannot vacuum with my dogs around as they go crazy, what are the noise levels like. Would it be able to go un-noticed at night or would my dog still hear it?
- Integrated and automated mopping function is facilitated by a 280mL water tank, which Xiaomi states can clean a 200sqm home in one go. You can also program your S5 Max to perform a mop-only of your house, via the Xiaomi app
- Selective Room Cleaning feature allows you to set ‘no-mop zones’ and ‘no-go zones.’ No-mop zones let you program your S5 Max to vacuum and mop in one go – but not on carpeted sections.
No-go zones tell your Xiaomi robot vacuum not to sweep and mop in selected barred areas, for example areas where the kid’s toys are
- New adaptive route planning algorithms equips the Roborock S5 Max with a laser beam for precise mapping
- Monitor the S5 Max’s route in real time via the Xiaomi smartphone app. You can also set cleaning schedules, so you can come home to fresh floors
- Includes a dock charger, a dustbin box, beak-like cleaning tool, washable HEPA filter, water tank, moisture-proof pad, microfibre mop cloth, user manual and mobile app guide.
These are a few of reviewers’ favourite things about the Roborock S5 Max:
- The Robock S5 Max picked up an impressive amount of dust, debris and fluff, and its suction power was cited as superior by reviewers.
- When faced with a variety of surfaces or mixed flooring such as hardwood and carpet, the Roborock S5 Max cleaned them all effectively with the same level of precision. Barriers were also easy to set up.
- The dust bin was easy to empty and clean, along with the removable HEPA filter
- Sturdy wheels don’t become jammed when there’s an excess of pet hair – hairy huskies were mentioned a few times
- The room mapping feature was appreciated for its accuracy. This isn’t always the case with robot vacuum cleaners, which can miss spots or clean the same spot multiple times.
