    I couldn't see any recent trends on this, so apologies if there already is one.

    Have people much experience with these? Do they work? In particular I hear that you can get ones now that even mop the floors. Any suggestions on decent ones for this? What sort of money are you looking at? I remember doing my research for the normal hoover and everyone recommended miele - are there brands to look out for / avoid?

    The combo ones are meant to be not great. Guess they are in the vhs tv combo stage with it... they dont go over saddle boards very easy either... I dont have one but was doing a bit of research on them as I was gonna buy one... carpet also is not a fav for them... rug np but carpet apparently is too rough and large. The ones I was looking at start off around 600 euro... cant remember the names but if ya want me to dig it out np. Some of them are 1500 euro and only slightly more powerful than one for 6-800 euro... the manufacturers seem to think a good app can up the price a lot

    I certainly don't want to go near the 1500e price anyway.

    I was listening to a tech slot on the radio and they were saying that these robot vacuums are great. And that even the mopping function worked.

    I'm looking at the roborock s5 max. The reviews seems to be excellent. That one mops as well as hoovers and I think on amazon it's about £450. There's a guy on adverts selling a new one for €385 too I think, but I'm not sure about that as if something goes wrong I've no shop to go back to.

    But even for about €250, I believe one of the iroombas is supposed to be good.

    But I'm just wondering if people on here actually had them and liked them or not, or if people have done this research already.

    I've a Roomba 671 and its a great little device,works brilliantly upstairs with carpet and downstairs on wooden floors. I think it was less than €300, I might look into getting the mop version for downstairs and leave my original one upstairs.

    Good info here, I'm thinking about one also, roborock s5 seems to be the recommendation overall

    I actually picked up the S5. And it's excellent. The mopping function won't get rid of stains, it's more of a quick wipe of the floors. But the hoovering is excellent.

    It's not quite effort free, I tend to clear away stuff on the floor before setting it going. But it is very handy. And for us, we never hoovered. We were a disgrace. And we have a baby that will soon be crawling, so cleaning the floors became important!
