The Roborock is THE BEST purchase I have ever made. I love coming home from work to a clean house. I’ve set a schedule to clean the main living areas every day. I have 4 indoor cats and I was having to vacuum every 2nd day with how much fur they lose.
I was totally amazed at how well it mapped the entire house. The second clean of the house it added 2 bedrooms that had closed doors in the first initial clean. So easy!
I have a mix of tiled and carpeted rooms and it does both with ease. I am yet to use the mopping feature but if the vacuuming ...is done so well I imagine that the mopping will be just as good. I was at the point of hiring a cleaner to come once a week but I don’t see the need for one anymore. I haven’t stopped raving about it since I got it and now friends are asking for my opinion of the Roborock. “Rosario Roborock” is my new favorite child. The app is simple to use. Merging or dividing different areas of the house is a fantastic feature and being able to select which rooms to clean is awesome. I LOVE everything about it.

Needs constant babysitting - therefore pointless
We bought this vacuum to try and make our lives easier and save time. So far neither of those objectives has been achieved. On the plus side the suction is okay and I like the concept of the app. It's just a shame that the mapping is rubbish and I have to babysit the vacuum every time we use it.
The biggest issue is that the vacuum gets confused by mirrors and windows. We have quite a few sliding glass doors and the vacuum doesn't understand that these are a hard barrier and tries perpetually to find a way to get behind them because it thinks ...it needs to vacuum in this magic mystery space. We also have mirrored sliding doors on the wardrobes and it cannot understand these either. This means that it cannot map the house properly and therefore goes into a constant cycle of going from room to room trying to get 'behind' the glass and mirrors. For example, if I set it to vacuum my daughter's bedroom it does that and once it bumps the mirrored robe door it then goes to my son's bedroom (on the other side of the mirrored robes) to try and get into my daughter's robe from the other side. When it realises it can't get there it then returns to the first bedroom and tries again. And so continues to do this in an endless loop until the battery runs out. The same with all of the glass sliding doors in our lounge, dining room, master bedroom - you get the picture. So I basically have to babysit the vacuum cleaner in every job that it does which is highly annoying when it was meant to be a time saving device. I've tried zoning the house into rooms but the mapping - which they describe as being at 'beta stage' is very fiddly and even with rooms defined, no-go zones and invisible walls set up linke a crazy labyrinth the vacuum can't be trusted to just vacuum and go back to base. For $700 I expect the app not to be in the 'beta stage' - I expect it to work. And for $700 I expect to be able to tell the vacuum to do something and to be able to leave it safe in the knowledge that it will do the simple task of vacuuming a room and returning to base. Right now we are better off just manually vacuuming using our old $100 vacuum cleaner and using the $700 Roborock as a very expensive piece of artwork mounted on the wall. Disappointing.

Better than expected!
I’d been looking at the Roborock and a couple of others for a while and was trying to justify to myself the cost. Along came a special and an extra discount for buying from Catch of the Day. I bit the bullet and my only complaint is I didn’t buy one sooner. The 6S Pure is fabulous. I have so far only used the vacuum function and haven't got to the mopping part yet. Vacuum is fabulous on vinyl planks and rugs and carpet. Goes from one to the other with ease and suction is much better than I thought it would be. I come home from work to clean pet...hair free floors. I love it and couldn’t live without it now! I just need to sit down and work out how the mopping function works. I would recommend this robo vac to anyone..... did I mention I love it :)

Great vacuum but flimsy mop and poor aftersales service
I'm pleased with the vacuum component, it does a good job on my hardwood floors and has made life easier! However, I'm disappointed with the mop- the attachment to connect it to the unit fell off somehow and disappeared. After owning it for only a month when this happened, I contacted Roborock who said the mop cloth isn't covered by warranty. Disappointing aftersales service. After paying for this expensive unit, I now have to purchase more mop attachments and when I asked customer service about what may have went wrong so I can prevent anything going wrong again, they replied "We don't know...."

My parents love it
I had my one for like 2 years & love it.
Was chatting with my parents 1 night after dinner & told them how well my machine works. Then they start complaining it hard to reach under the bed & some corners, also it's a big house to vaccum with a manual one.
So I waited until the black Friday sale & bought one for them.
Set up the machine & app(on my iPad), scheduled for cleaning date. The only thing I hear from my parents is such a good machine, does the job they can't do.
This model is a lot quieter compared with the S5 I got. Bigger dust box. ...
Purchased in December 2020 at eBay for $511.00.
Does a fabulous job.
I purchased this for my daughter and she is absolutely delighted with how the S6 picks up dog hair in the first pass and is so easy to empty. The capacity isn't great but you would not expect a stick vac to have a huge capacity by design.

Life changing purchase
Thank you I absolutely LOVE our S6 Pure I would highly recommend! Aside from doing an amazing job keeping my house clean, I love that it maps the house in an orderly fashion and that I can do section cleans with the flick of an app. Fantastic product! Haven’t used the mop feature and I don’t think I will. Very happy with the vacuuming. Does our whole house in 50 mins.

So far so good
Got before Xmas a Roborock S6 Pure as a replacement for our Neato Botvac that died (once too many times) and didn't bother resuscitating it for although when it worked did a fantastic job, the trouble of having it repaired at great expense again! was too much. The Roborock has been great so far. It app is easy to use and can be installed in multiple devices to share the robot. Once it mapped the house it took less time to get its bearing and start cleaning. Its laser based guiding system works well. We clear as many obstacles on the floor as po...ssible because this expedite the cleaning. We have a combination of carpet, tiles and timber floor and it does a good job on all surfaces picking up dust and dog hair (two dogs). Haven't tried the mop function as we don't need it. Although its roller and dust box are half the size of the Neato it still covers the same area in about the same time. So far we are happy with it and I recommend it.

Amazing! So worth it
We were a bit on the fence about buying a robot vacuum but had a few people recommend Roborock. We were not disappointed! It has great suction, even on carpet which we were impressed with. The app is easy to use and if mapped out house after it’s first clean. Transitions from tiles/floorboards to carpet/rugs with ease. Battery lasts a while too

Best purchase I have made, worth every cent!
This is one of the best purchases I have ever made!
I lead a busy life, mum of 2 under 2, working, studying and also volunteering with 2 pets. I have scheduled roborock to clean every day and it such a weight off my shoulders coming home to clean floors everyday.
Works well on all our floors (carpet, mats, wood and tiles) and does not get stuck or run into things like other robovacuums I have used. The mopping function is a bit lack lustre however I have always had low expectations for mopping functions. It cleans my 4x2 (140sqm) house in about 2 hours and usually has about 30% battery left after.
The S6 pure seems the perfect value for money robovac and would recommend to anyone!

knocked my socks off
Bought this after doing a bit of reading up and didnt want to pay over$1000 for what looked like older tech.
Set up reasonably easy, it took 3 attempts to connect to wifi, but after that wow am i happy. The mapping is excellent, we have a step down into another living area which it recognised no problem. The app and map is good, you can see where it can see (Through windows that go to the ground) and then just set up invisible walls so it doesnt try and go there. Have set up cleaning for every other day, sends me an alert when starting and when...

Much better than expected
Have never been sure if robot vacs were a gimmick or not , despite this after much research I went for the S6 pure. The set up is easy enough although the app can be a little confusing at first but after its initial mapping run I forgot about all that as I was amazed how good a cleaning job it did!!..this robot is definitely no gimmick!!.. fantastic and thorough clean and have had zero issues with it getting stuck or losing its way..love how I can set it to do just certain rooms at certain times and the app becomes easier to understand the more you use it...would give it six stars if I could, thoroughly recommend it..
Roborock the time saver
This vacuum cleaner is a boon for us. Cleans tiles and carpets without a trace of dust. Was surprised with the amount of dust it removed in the first three uses. Never knew that so much dust was in the carpets

Jeeves is the Man!
We've had Jeeves (Roborock S6 Pure) for about a month and honestly, we wish we had got one YEARS ago!! Hubby was always a little reluctant as we have two Labradors that shed hair like no tomorrow and vacuuming daily is part of our life. We weren't sure it would be up to the task. But, I HATE vacuuming and finally decided to go for it! We have been nothing but super impressed! The app is awesome (after a quick call to the help desk to assist the not-very-tech-savvy-me). He mapped out our house and we easily named and segregated our rooms (we hav...e carpet, hard floor and rugs). We can easily ask him to vacuum a specific room or the whole house. The battery life has never failed after the initial charge. And with two labs and 300sqm we empty the dustbin approximately 1-3 times for the entire house which is fantastic! The only error we have had is when he got caught on some cords under my son's bed. Today I decided to give the mop a whirl and now here I am writing a review while Jeeves does all the dirty work!! We have a few nooks that he can't reach and purely because of how highly we rate this machine, we have also purchased the Roborock H6 stick vacuum as well which is equally amazing and easy to use, super light and excellent attachments for our blinds, couches and car. If you're hesitating, don't. Go for it! You will not be sorry!! Might go pour myself a glass of wine while Jeeves finishes cleaning...... :)

Better than I expected
Works really well in my small house. The initial mapping was spot on, and dividing it up into rooms was easy. Does a great job of keeping the carpets and Lino clean, and the mopping function works reasonably well too.
It has exceeded my expectations, especially after seeing how a friends one performed so poorly (different brand).

Over priced and can’t map only for mopping
I have carpet, tiles and floorboards. Want to map the area only for mopping but it doesn’t allow. If I forget to take the water cabin and say clean, it will damp all the carpet area too. No option to select only mop or vacuum.

Questions & Answers
One of the review says you can't map for mopping only a specific area - is this correct?
Is the Roborock any good for vacuuming and mopping on slate tile floors?
Purchased our Roborock a few weeks ago, our house is completely slate tiles - vacuums no problem, mop function works fairly well, but where the slate is really uneven it won't get into all the grooves, if that makes sense. Still 100% happy with it - we soak the mop pads with a bit of floor cleaner as you can't put chemicals in the mop itself and it does a great job.
The popular Roborock S6 Pure is marketed by Xiaomi as the revamped version of their S6 model, and is offered at a cheaper price of $799.
