This is our verdict of the Roborock S6 MaxV based on several hours of research of reviews from both experts and users.
Xiaomi certainly doesn’t disappoint and continuously innovates to provide a better product for its users at a reasonable price. It released Roborock S6 MaxV that is a 2-in-1 robot vacuum and mop with smart navigation and powerful suction.
It uses two cameras and LIDAR to flawlessly navigate and map the area. If it detects an obstacle along the way, the AI processes it to try and identify what object it is and sends it to the app with the label. Don’t worry about the captured and processed images because according to the company, it doesn’t duplicate, save, or send it to the cloud. This means, all the processed images are within the device only, hence your privacy is assured.
However, its ReactiveAI can only identify limited obstacles. But still, this is a minor problem because it may mislabel some obstacles but it will still avoid them.
This product has a large dust bin that can accommodate a week's worth of dirt but of course, this depends on how often you use it. Other robot vacuums’ dustbins need to be emptied after each cleaning cycle. Moreover, it also has a large 0.3 liter water tank and a large mop cloth bracket, hence a larger area can be covered.
It may not have a remote control function but the app is intuitive and provides a lot of features that enable the user to have more access and control over the robot vacuum. One of the features it offers is the virtual boundaries which are the no-mop zone and no-go zone. The no-mop zone feature is helpful for those who have carpets and areas that they don’t want to be mopped because this feature only activates when on mopping mode. On the other hand, the no-go zone feature can block off any areas on either of the cleaning modes.
The S6 MaxV can vacuum and mop efficiently which leaves your floor neat and shiny. Its suction power is above average and can go as high as 2500Pa. Meaning, it can clean thoroughly on any type of floor and can deliver deep cleaning. However, it only comes with one reusable mop cloth so, you still need to wash it and wait for it to dry before you can use it again.
Overall, the Roborock S6 MaxV offers the key features a robot vacuum must have which are the powerful suction level, smart navigation, bearable noise, and highly customizable app. Its price may be a bit high, but it is worth the investment because of the performance it delivers.
