Overall happy with the purchase

Does a good job
We upgraded from an old robotic cleaner that didn't always seem to clean everywhere. It was a little tricky to set up with our wifi, but eventually I could work through the slightly outdated instructions to achieve it. The instructions were also a little short on how to set up and use the mapping, especially how to use over 2 levels. But once I had the mapping sorted the Roborock did an excellent job with cleaning and covering everywhere. We have mainly tiles with some carpet. It handled the latter well, even mats with tassles. We haven't used the mopping facilities yet.

Very good, but not perfect for pet hair on carpets
Overall getting this Roborock has been very good for general cleaning, but not perfect with pet fur on our carpets.
We have a Corgi who sheds a lot year-round. This Roborock picks up 95-99% of the fur on our hardwood floors, and about 70-80% of fur on our carpet floors in the bedroom. It's good enough to keep things looking fine on a daily basis, especially in the living room. But we also do a full vacuum with our Dyson on weekends when we have people over.
Apart from the issue with pet fur on carpets, it does a great job. Also, I should ad...d that it seems no robot vacuum can handle pet fur on carpets much better---we did a lot of shopping around and comparing, and most brands and models have the same shortcomings. I believe the higher-priced iRoomba models with a silicone brush apparently do better with fur on carpets, but they are substantially more expensive, and many of those models lack other functions that the Roborock S6 Pure has. So all things considered, we are happy with the purchase. P.S. Roborock sometimes offers 25% discounts, so it's worth waiting for one of those.

Perfect for Hairy Labrador
Have had this unit for 30 days and so far - perfect. Great on our wooden floors and collects all our dog's hairs. Wish it had a bigger bin and notified us when the bin is full. Other than that it's great. Never gets stuck, was fairly easy to set up and just gets on with the job. Haven't used the mop function.

Better than good, not as good as excellent - prefer S6
Loooooved my 1st roborock S6 - so awesome for daily vac of dog hair. I loaned it to my sister when she had a bub and let her keep it and replaced it with new Pure S6 which I don't love as much. Rubber flipper instead of bristles isn't as good and it has some trouble finding the dock. Still recommend it for pet hair and daily vacuuming. Also bought S6 as a special gift for friends who totally rate it.
Roborock Pure S6 (bought in 2020)
Bought in July 2020 for 660 AUD (EOY discount).
Works great and easy-to-go app to control it.
Dust bin is a little bit small (full for 70 sq.m run for pretty clean apartment).
Stops on very thin transparent curtains (it is inconvenient and I expected it to push it).
I can't live without my Roborock
I love our new Roborock ... I just put it on before I leave for the office and come home to a clean home! I can move it around the different levels as well, and love the 'cliff sensing' mechanism, so it doesn't tumble down the stairs. The mopping function isn't great, but everything else about this is fantastic. Oh, and its dog friendly too!
The roborock lifesaver for golden pups who shed glitter everywhere
Love the roborock it has been an absolute lifesaver when it comes to keeping our house tidy with a 10 month old pup. As you could imagine they make heaps of mess with bringing sand and leaving hair everywhere. But turn on the roborock and she does her thing leaving our floors so clean! It’s the best investment I ever made since having our puppy saves me getting the main vacuum out every day just for the hair and sand! Do it! You won’t regret how much this product saves your time and makes your life that little bit easier!!!
Amazing machine for the "in between" vacuums
This little robot vacuum has been amazing. It's been a great way of keeping on top of our floors with kids and pets in the house. The mop function gives a very light mop but is good for just keeping on top of the floors in between a full mop.
My only pet peave is that our roborock always seems to find a tissue somewhere on it's merry journey and it tends to pick it up and then spit it out all over the rest of the floor if we aren't home to rescue it. Thankfully the random tissue incidents have lessened in frequency since our robovac has been v...isiting previously forgotten spots of carpet under lounges etc where strange things lurk. The best thing it ever picked up was a rats head...and dear lord, I am glad it found it... but this was certainly not the most memorable vacuum cleaning session of my life! It also loves winding up phone charges in its brush- so make sure to keep them off the floor. The app is fantastic and great to set when you are out. All in all, we are very happy with our roborock vacuum cleaner. Have taken off 1 star for it's bad tissue dispursal habit!
Happy with the product but can be improved
Happy with the product, would have given 3 stars but given an extra star the way how the software let me split the zones or rooms, etc. From a negative side it gets stuck on the rugs, corners, sometimes get lost to reach back to dock and mopping ain't that great. It will be great if can be improved on these basic things.
Can't live without it
The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is because it doesn't go back to the dock when the bin is full. The first time I used it, it got so much fluff off a new rug that excess fluff was coming out of the bin. I think it should have a sensor to indicate bin fullness. Otherwise an excellent machine. Never gets stuck, always returns to the dock, and does a great vacuum
Pretty good vac to have
I use this vac on my hardwood floors and carpeted bedrooms. The mopping feature is pretty good but water tank has to be refilled halfway through clean. I don't feel it's as powerful as my previous robovac but all in all does a pretty good job and I only have to get my cylinder vac out for furniture and spiders webs etc high up on wall. I am having trouble with app. Can't seem to connect it. Not too fussed as it's easy to use
Purchased in August 2020 at On line for A$800.00.
absolutely love this machine, it has its small faults but I still love it. I do wish I waited for the new one but not to worry. Made my life so much easier having this machine.
One of the downfalls to it is it has scratched our floors in some places.
Great vaccum, real smart, mopping not so good
The vacuum function is great, really good for maintenance sweeps but not heavy duty. The brush will sometimes flick dust parts away from its path causing more of a mess. The mopping feature is not userfriendly and not convenient we use the vacuum feature only for now
It Nice but...
I purchased this as my house has always covered by dog hair, we have two hairy dogs.. It great for a small area but it would not work well for the whole house clean. I do like the fact I can just do the zone clean, which is what I use most. I don't think I can leave it to clean my whole house as I would have to empty the bin out and remove dog long hair it out at least once. I thought I brought the one which self empty itself but I think i got too excited when I saw the sale I never look at it properly. But overall it does what we want it to do.
