After six months with a robot vacuum, I’m never going back

In my fifteen years as a tech reviewer, rarely have I tested a product that has actually positively changed my life. Something I’d go and buy again if I didn’t have it anymore. But there are always outliers. The Nuki smart lock for European locks is one of them, Synology’s NAS drives are another, and now the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra is joining this very elite list.

Why? Because having a robot vacuum at home is a game-changer, and having one that’s so advanced makes me feel like I’m living in the future. Is it perfect? Oh, far from it, but it’s a fantastic showcase of where this tech is now, and it has erased about 95% of the hassle of floor cleaning — an unquestionable win in my book.
