Great vacuume but after 6 years stopped working

Great robovac but after 6 years the motor and LDS sensor need replacing but I can't get a replacement. Ordered one online but it is slightly different shape and does not fit. Disappointing as it was such a great vacuume. Show details

Best Purchase

We brought this a few years ago now and it is still going strong. I love how you can just turn it on from the machine or your phone (app) and then sit back and watch it do all the floor cleaning work for you. We have floor boards and it works really Well on them.  Show details

Reduces cleanup time when you have a toddler

I set the vacuum before I go to bed and when I get up of a morning I have clean carpets. So glad i purchased this cleaner as it’s one less job I need to worry about. It can also move under furniture and get to those hard to get to places. I don’t think that my carpets have ever looked so clean. Also great value for money. I did a lot of research before purchasing and you can pay a lot of money but this was both affordable and dies a good job. It can also easily move from floorboards to rugs of different thicknesses with ease.  Show details

Wonderful!

Wasn't sure what I would get for the price. It is great and does a fantastic clean up. Surprised how good it was on carpet. Never gets stuck. I only use it on the press and go option - I didn't want to use wifi. Couldn't think how it could be improved, except it sometimes loses it's recharge station.
UPDATE
Upgrade my opinion to totally awesome. So easy to clean. The replacement brushes are very cheap so make sure you do the little brush every 2 months and the silicone roller every 6 months.  Show details

Love it

The robot vacuum is amazing, runs perfectly. Very quick and does a really thorough job. This machine replaced another more expensive brand and this one does a much better job.

The best purchase ever!!

Brilliant vacuum that saves us so much time. Cleans effectively and thoroughly. Doesn’t fill up too quickly. Accurate room mapping and sensors. Highly recommend for anyone interested in a robot vacuum.

Its good, but theres a reason its not the most expensive on the market

I was given it and im so thankful... its such a help, and so much fun to watch. However it does tend to get lost sometimes... and im not sure if you can save the map it creates... which means if u dont turn it on quite right it wipes the map so you cant zone clean unless u get it to remap your whole house again... this can be frustrating... also not sure that it can mop... if there is a way to fix any of this pls lmk! Show details

Best investment ever!!

Mi Robot vacuum cleaner is my new favourite home appliance. I use it every single day without fail. Basically set and forget. It does an excellent job on hard floors. Much more thorough than I hoped it could be. Great value for its price, easy to set up and use too.

Argh! help please Xiaomi. My vac used to work fine. It went off line and I cant get it back. I contacted support but they no longer deal with Australia and told me to go back to who I bought it from - I dont remember!
