So happy with my Roborock S7!
We received our Roborock S7 a week ago and our floors have been spotless ever since. We love the new addition to the family. Roxy (of course we had to name her and because she has a female voice she got a girl’s name) was easy to set up and did a great job of mapping out the house. The first time we let her loose on the ground floor she took about two hours to clean, I guess because she was still trying to get an idea of the lay-out of the house. Since then it’s only taken about an hour and there is still about 50% battery charge left after ea...ch cleaning run. Overall Roxy did an fantastic job vacuuming. Though we have run her every day, the little dustbin compartment is still pretty full after each clean. Today I found a dead baby gecko in there! We have laminated floors in the hallway, an open plan living/dining/kitchen area and two carpeted areas off the hallway. We have a very thick, very shaggy rug in the living room that Roxy struggled with. One of the little feelers got badly entangled and before long I received a “help” message via the app and had to free her. I actually had to cut the carpet around the feeler, to get it out, and the rubbery feeler ended up a bit twisted, but still works fine. The rug showed no damage despite me attacking it with scissors, so all is good. Roxy also did not like the grooves for our sliding door to the outside area and got stuck in them. Before we deployed Roxy the second day, I created some invisible barriers around the rug, and to keep her away from the doors to the verandah, so we have not had any more issues. I would feel comfortable letting her get on with the job even when nobody is at home. She is very gentle and doesn’t really bump into things. We have a tall vase on a little side table and there is absolutely no danger of Roxy knocking over the table. I’m very impressed with the way Roxy navigates around table and chair legs. She actually fits through the legs of all our chairs and side tables. In parts of the house she does a better job than I do with my normal vacuum cleaner, because there are areas where I just can’t be bothered to crouch down and get into, but Roxy just breezes through. Today we tried the mopping function for the first time. While I’m glad that we have the option, I don’t think we’ll use it a lot. I guess it’s a no-brainer that a little cloth and a tiny tank of plain water are no match for a bucket of hot, soapy water and a thick mop. Still, the floors look good. We chose this model because we wanted the option of adding the self-emptying bin when it comes out. At this stage I don’t know if we’ll actually get it. It’s no hardship emptying the rubbish compartment after each run and I don’t see the point of running the vacuum cleaner every day while we’re on holiday. With the Roborock S7 being currently sold-out in most places, I was delighted when I found it at MobileCiti. I ordered it on Sunday morning and it arrived two days later on Tuesday, and that was a delivery to regional Australia. I’m extremely happy with this purchase and I highly recommend the Roborock S7.

Never knew I needed one of these
Fantastic, this little fella absolutely cleans just as well as my old dyson v8 and I could’t believe the amount of dust and debris picked up by this roborock s7. The mopping is also fantastic as I have a lot of tiles, obviously not as perfect as a human mopping using detergent but or a nice quick surface mopping it’s perfect just cuts down how often you might of usually done it yourself. As for the suction power the vacuum itself is no different than any other high end performing vacuum and I’ve owned a few, pretty safely can say that robot vac...uum technology is now on par with normal handhelds. The only thing I don’t like about it is if you have a step like my bathrooms they have a small 2cm step into them from the tiles/carpet for my on-suite the S7 can not lift up high enough to get in there so you’ll need to buy yourself a little ramp for him to get into certain places of your home if you have small step areas like I do. Over all I’m taking of 1 star because he can’t climb a small 2cm step I think that’s a bit of an oversight and could be improved in the next model. The main question here though is would I buy one of these roborocks again? Yes most definitely once you’ve got a robot vacuum you won’t know what to do with yourself. The software is great, zone cleaning is great, it’s easy to use and best of all free’s you up for other things. I highly recommend, my home is large 4 bedroom single story and takes 1 hour 20 mins for a full clean and mopping.

Vacuum Works well on tiles and carpets. Excellent suction. The mop function was an added bonus. Love love love it! The app is so easy to use. I would love to see alert for when the water tray is almost empty.

Dobby is a very welcome new member of our Clean Team.
My Roborock s7 is great. We are a pet free and child free household, Sotheby’s floors do not get very grotty. After the first run, I realised the robot needed a name, and it is now called Dobby. Dobby has no problem cleaning our combination of timber floors and large rugs. I was pretty shocked at how much dust it lifted on the first couple of runs. The mopping function is staying on top of most grungy bits although does not replace the weekly normal mop. I did find the mapping to be a bit challenging, although I managed to work out how to ex...clude one area, around the bottom of bar stools. I would like a Bin Full reminder, and I would also like to be able to change the voice- Australia does not need an American accent in our robots! It is also a wee bit noisy. I am a first time robot cleaner owner so can not compare with other cleaners. But I would recommend this to anyone wanting a robot cleaner.

Awesome. Just awesome.
It's seriously awesome. I was expecting it to be good from the reviews but i'm honestly amazed and horrified about how much dust and dirt this picks up. I was sure it get stuck every 5 seconds but no it's been incredible. Seriously impressed with the technology.
The kids love it. The wife loves it. I love it.

I bought this Roborock v7 as an upgrade from my xiamo robot vaccum, this robot vaccum is a life changer, long life battery, suction is excellent I have 3 girls long hair and we don’t have to worry about vaccuming daily, the mop is really good but for stubborn stains I still have to spot clean but still it’s better then mopping the whole area.
You can choose what area to clean from mapping and that makes it soo easy!

A game changer
This has been a huge help to us. With two young kids and a dog who seems to shed a full coat every time he sneezes, I couldn’t keep up with the vacuuming and it was causing a lot of stress. Now we run this every day (and mop a couple of times a week) and it’s enabled us to stay on top of it all. We have both floorboards and carpet, and it does a great job on both. The dustbin isn’t huge, so sometimes I will pause the clean part-way through to empty it, but it’s only a very minor trade-off.

Our cat loves our S7 just as much as we do!
This is our first robovac and we didn’t think it would be this impressive. Easily mapped our rooms, it can easily handle the change of levels between our carpet and wooden floors that contain rugs. Love how hard working it is picking up our cat’s white fur. So efficient at vacuuming, I didn’t realise our floors were that dirty or covered in so much fur! The only disappointment is emptying the bin. I now have the time to enjoy the more fun things in life.

Best robo vacuum I've owned
Bought the S7 from Roborock Australia. I've had 2 irobot roombas and a roborock S5 Max so far. Hard to fault this machine. The new agitating mop does a near-human job now and the fact it can elevate above carpets and when its parked saves a lot of moisture related problems. Roborock sent me the incorrect 30 extra mop replacements which were not suitable for the S7 but when queried on it, they acknowledged it and gave a small refund. Thats good aftersales service.

Have had my machine a couple of weeks more than happy with performance on both carpet and timber floors. Charges part way through then completes job 140 minutes byall up

I call this Roborock S7 my husband new toy, he loves it, we have a cat and a lab who shed hair all time, we have timber and carpet floors, he has set up both our phones to start the housemaid to work while we are away from home, I was recently in WA and he was in Qld and i set it to work a zone area, but he was outside, he got a laugh out of that. Seriously roborock s7 does an excellent job, we are very happy with this product...looking forward for when the new docking station is available, so it empty itself and add more water when needed.

This Vacuum is so good
We have both, carpet and timber floor, plenty of obstacles to go around and it does the work properly every time, no carpet wet, no marks on timber flooring, sensors work really well, mop and vacuum do a really good job.

I live in a house with timber floors close to the sea. The floors were always covered in a sticky salt and dust composite and we found it hard to keep clean as we had to clean everyday. Then we got a puppy! The S7 is wonderful. We have set it to operate everyday and it does a thorough job. Like magic. Highly recommend though we haven't tried it on carpets yet.

First Robo Vac and very impressed. I no longer need to argue with the kids or myself about vacuuming! Just put the robovac on and off it goes! Vacuums well, although a dust catches full reminder would be helpful! I can now set it off twice a week and the house stays clean! Mop function works pretty well, but just uses water. Some more sticky or stubborn marks will still need a spot clean.....still better than having to do a full mop! Loving this so far!

Questions & Answers
Please consider building an outdoor 'covered area' mop/vac robot so I can keep my tiled entertainment area clean. So many houses in Australia have outdoor covered entertainment areas at the back of the house and they get dusty relatively quickly. Makita has a heavy duty mop robot that might do the job but I am sure you can come up with a good robot for outdoor area. It could be twice as tall with bigger wheels and water carrying capacity to deal with the heavier cleaning requirements of an outdoor area.
