Analysis and testing
We’ve been using the Roborock S7 Pro Ultra as the only vacuum to clean our house for several weeks and here’s what we observed.
THE of this robot vacuum cleaner is quite commonIt has a flattened cylinder shape and a protuberance for the laser. It’s all plastic and has a glossy surface that generally holds up well to handling with your fingers.
This is a relatively large and it shows for better and for worse.As we will see later, he is able to climb on carpets, but he does not usually squeeze into tight spaces.
If we turn the robot vacuum over, we discover a unique side brush and a central rubber roller, which caught our attention: it is a high-end model, but the configuration of the brush is more modest more modest than you might expect.
The big surprise came from the baseIt’s quite bulky, and if you have a small apartment, you might have a hard time finding a place for it. However, instead of being limited to self-emptying, it is a 3-in-1:
- The first column is used for remove dirt from the solids tank.
- The second store clean waterwhich is used both to fill the tank for washing and to clean the robot’s brushes.
- The third column contains dirty water cleaning.
The Roborock S7 Pro Ultra has a navigation system that combines LiDAR, two RGB cameras and an artificial intelligence algorithm to optimize its performance.
In our experience, it moves “smart”, choosing the trajectories that allow him to cross the whole house without turning around too much.. In fact, the problem is often that there are spaces, for example under the chairs in the dining room, where it does not pass. The solution is simple: raise the chairs and, as the manufacturers recommend, clear the space.
Because even if your system seems very advanced, he always stumbles on the same stone (metaphorically) as the majority.. So, in our house, he got stuck with shoelaces, curtains and cables.
We love the way he takes care of the matsYou can set it to run over rugs, avoid them, or when it runs over rugs, to raise the scrub attachment so it doesn’t wet and damage the fabric.
What we liked most about the Roborock S7 Pro Ultra is its versatility when it comes to cleaning floors. and even the cleaning itself, which we think is helpful for allergy sufferers and those who want to keep device maintenance to a minimum.
With 4 power levels for vacuuming, 3 for brushing and carpet detection, it’s hard not to find a setting that suits your needs. With a suction power of up to 5,100 Pa, the device has a suction capacity of 1.5 million liters. enough power to vacuum large enough solids such as, for example, blades of grass or fluff.
Our house is 100 m2 and we have a cat and a cat. we are overall very satisfied with the way the system has worked. both on floors and carpets. However, given that it is an expensive and sophisticated robot vacuum cleaner, we expected a few more improvements:
- A scrub function to remove stubborn stains on the floor.
- The device should have an additional central rubber roller to improve its performance in homes with pets.
If there’s one thing that surprised us, it’s this the effectiveness of its baseWe forgot for almost 2 months to clean the tanks and a few weeks to fill the water for washing.
Our apartment has 100 m2 and 3 bedrooms and this vacuum cleaner was able to clean it completely even at maximum power. We had doubts because, although the manufacturer specifies in the technical specifications that offers up to 3 hours of battery lifeThese figures can only be achieved if you do not scrub and set the device to a minimum.
Normally in our daily life, it is set to medium power for vacuuming and scrubbing, so it resists that. up to 2 hours of uninterrupted operation and the ability to double clean our entire house.
In this sense, we recommend it for medium and large sized homes. Do you have a very large house and do you like this vacuum cleaner? No problem because if the battery runs out, it returns to base to recharge and then picks up where it left off.
If you’re tech-savvy, you’ll love how comprehensive the app is. The Roborock S7 Pro Ultra app because it has it all: you can set up parental controls, do not disturb mode, vacuuming and mopping options, how it behaves with carpets…we also think the app interface is neat and nimble.
If, on the contrary, you are reluctant towards technologyIf you’re on the other hand, you’ll probably be happy with the main screen, but you might find it a bit difficult to navigate, as the number of settings can be overwhelming. We regretted that this robot vacuum came with a remote control, but it can be controlled by voice assistants from Amazon and Google.
After thoroughly testing the Roborock S7 Pro Ultra, we would like to point out how advanced its base is, which we believe will be the case for the Roborock S7 Pro Ultra. ideal for allergy sufferers, the lazy and those who don’t want to worry about the maintenance of their robot vacuum cleaner..
A point in their favor are . all the cleaning possibilities it offersWe therefore recommend it for homes with different types of floors and carpets. It is also powerful enough to deliver good performance. It’s not the most complete vacuum for people with pets, but it does the job in this case.
For navigation and autonomy, it is a robot vacuum suitable for medium to large homes.. If you have a small house, this model from Roborock is suitable, but its base is so bulky that it can be a problem in studios where every square meter counts.
If you like technology, you will be grateful to have such a complete application. to get the most out of it. But if you prefer a more user-friendly approach, we think there are options that better suit your needs and tastes.
