Looking for the most advanced robotic vacuums, customers consider purchasing of the products from the leading world brands. Xiaomi and iRobot are the famous producers that are worth attention most of all.
Comparing Xiaomi Mi Robot vs iRobot Roomba 770, I realize that the vacuum is the first and the only model produced by the well-known Chinese manufacturer. As to iRobot Corporation, the model 770 is a flagship, but one of several dozen products. Therefore, I guess, the Roomba vacuum is more:
The technologies (series II already), proven by years of experience, like Dirt Detect, iAdapt Navigation and Virtua Wall, allow the vacuum to remove hair and dust efficiently, smartly detecting the stairs or the walls, avoiding falling down or overturning. Meanwhile, the innovative vacuum, invented by Xiaomi company, has its significant benefits, even in terms of technologies. It is equipped with 12 various sensors, Wi-Fi connectivity, long-life, large-capacity battery, voluminous dustbin. It is able to clean large areas up to 2700 sq. ft. perfectly well, due to zigzag and the other advanced patterns it supports. It reaches the edges, eliminating dust and dirt; the difference is only in inches: for Xiaomi it makes 0.4 inches from the edge; for iRobot, the figure goes to zero.
The vacuums are very similar by dimensions. iRobot Roomba is 0.4 inches thinner that is important to fit all slots under the furniture. Xiaomi is more lightweight. In terms of design, it’s difficult to decide, which one: Xiaomi Mi Robot or Roomba 770 is more attractive, black or white. Both ones are sleek and minimalist. As for me, I think, iRobot is more elegant and unstainable.
The Xiaomi vacuum is much more affordable, still being top-rated. However, it is not as popular as its American counterpart yet.
The vacuum that is medium priced, is very advanced in terms of technologies and performance. It is equipped with 12 different sensors, long-life battery and Wi-Fi connectivity. Coming with voluminous dustbin, it cleans large areas quite efficiently. Meanwhile, the product is still a novelty, and some minor failures may happen. As to the performance, the difference is only in 0.4 inches of dust that can remain at the edges.
The vacuum is one of the most efficient and reliable vacuums of all iRobot items and overall. It comes with smart, innovative technologies proven over time, such as iAdapt Navigation, Virtual Walls and Persistent Pass, ensuring deep cleaning of troublesome spots. It filters all particles efficiently. Therefore, the vacuum is expensive, but it’s worth the price, being highly efficient and easy to maintain.
