Pros

  • Identifies and avoids objects in its way
  • Fast, accurate mapping
  • Never got itself stuck

Cons

  • Frustrating mopping experience
  • Less-than-stellar vacuum performance

The Roborock S6 MaxV has great performance on bare floors. This very well-built vacuum easily sucks up pet hair, large debris, and small debris from surfaces like hardwood or laminate. However, it struggles with picking up large debris like cereal when its dirt compartment is partially full. It does an excellent job of maneuvering itself and works with an app that allows you to set up virtual boundaries and 'no-go' zones. Unfortunately, like most robot models, it incurs high recurring costs and has quite a few parts that need regular maintenance.
