Here's the breakdown:

If you're in the market for a high-end robot vacuum and can live with a robot that doesn't speak your language, than the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum is the top of the pack, beating out top offerings from competitors like Roomba and Neato at a fraction of the price while delivering superior performance. Great battery life, mapping system and an easy to use app makes this the best robot vacuum on the market at this time, pushing the bar higher for other manufacturers to follow.

Great battery life
Great price & value
Smart real-time mapping system
Excellent build quality
Good suction power

Currently only available in Chinese market
Limited accessories included

I see a lot of good reviews and this seems like a great unit with all Roomba/Neato features minus the price. But no sellers in the US. Which of those chinese stores is more recommended/responsive if unit is DOA?

I take issue with this statement:

Neato at a fraction of the price while delivering superior performance

Compared to Roomba and Dyson products but the Neato D series is similar priced and has better cleaning performance than even the more expensive competitor's and imo, based on the videos of the Mi robot vac, it's superior to those too.

The torture tests results of the Mi are underwhelming to say the least. It can't even clean in corners, plus its side brushes are like the Roomba brushes which flick debris everywhere.

Neato BotVac 80 w/ Li-NMC Battery , 2x XV11 w/ Li-NMC Battery
