The robot vacuum market is swarmed with new models, new brands and an ever growing list of technological advances. Why, then, are older generation models like the Roomba 677 still sticking around? The simple answer is value for the money.
With new models coming out on a regular basis the older generation Roomba vacuums are getting price cuts. Because of this, old robots are finding new homes. The most popular 600 series robot, the Roomba 675, is one such robot. It doesn’t have a lot of fancy features, but it performs.
With the release of the top-tier Roomba i7 and i7+, iRobot also released a new budget-friendly model, the Roomba e5. Previously, owners found that the 600 series robots were underrated and buying them up for the lowered prices.
With Roomba doing everything in their power to stay on top of the market, newcomers and old rivals keep pushing the envelope. With the Roomba i7+ we were introduced to a self-emptying robot. Now Ecovacs introduces technology to avoid obstacles in real time.
It seems Roborock love to confuse the consumers. It started with the model naming confusion of the Mi 2 robot and continued with the dual mobile apps. Now, Roborock releases the S5 Max on the heels of releasing the Roborock S6.
If you are a working professional that has a lot of space to clean, you may wonder how well a robotic vacuum would perform for you. In a warehouse, shop, showroom or anywhere else with vast amounts of hard flooring, it can be a chore to keep clean.
The Roborock S6, one of the best Roborock robots to date, has a lot of competition from within. One of those is the Roborock S55. What, exactly, is the S55, though? There is a lot of confusion surrounding the S5 models, and I want to clear that up.
