Seen a few robot vac posts recently. Below are my comments from a similar deal ..

I have had a few of the cheaper ones and they are to be honest a bit pointless. You have to run around after them making sure they don't go under things like the TV cabinet so they don't chew wires.

They just randomly move all over the house bumping into things, and going places you don't want it to. even when its done a full clean it will have missed spots all over as it doesn't 'know' which bits it has done.
I returned mine and now have the 360 s5 (Paid about £220) and the difference if absolutely huge between the two. It has full laser mapping and stores room layouts. so you can block off areas you don't want it to go (Under the TV, Under dressing tables and so on) and it will remember for next time. Also as it uses lasers to map out the room it can intelligently clean them and does so in a 'S' / snake pattern making sure it covers all areas. Soon as its done it will return to the charger.
I would say its well worth the extra investment. It has not replaced my main vacuum. One of these will not

For another £50 it is well worth upgrading to one with laser mapping and more importantly storage of those maps

Buying a Roomba (or 3) was worth it. I bought 2x i7 and a 895 for loft. Cat hairs more or less eradicated! Love them
Buy a Xiaomi Roborock. It's absolutely fantastic and far superior to any Roomba. Have used mind everyday sometimes twice a day

Xiaomi is worth it though, it plans the room and memorises it, doesn't bump into each wall, it knows where it goes and cleans really well

Where did you find your 360 S5 in the UK?

Having owned robot cleaners for over 11 years I confirm the answer is no. If you are bothered you might donit every so often with a hand held dyson like I do but only a few corners actually matter in my house due to stuff in them
If you are thinking of buying a robot vacuum invest in a good one. I have Neato D7 and absolutely brilliant. It has got virtual no go lines and ask it to clean only one room if required. It maps the floor with laser and can remember the plans for more than one floor.
It's very powerful and do a better job than my vax upright.
Do you research. You get what you pay for.

I guess you do £617 at amazon

As I said - you get what you pay for.
£569- at my robot centre with 5 year warranty. I think Amazon had a really good deal on the prime day.
You never know what black friday might bring. 🤞
Had one for the past 3 months, loving it! Would recommend at this price for sure. Its just great to leave a house with a dirty kitchen floor and return to a clean one.

I bought it from gearbest. Took about a week to arrive with yodel. Its a fantastic piece of kit
Can it go from hard floor to a rug? Flat rug, not fluffy/hairy one.
I'm in the market for one, but I really am not sure. I've heard that you needn't bother with anything less than £300 if you want a clean home.

I sold my Miele C3 just the other week after lugging it around the flat and having hot steaming exhaust pumping into my face, then having to suffer pulling out of the socket etc... It was an absolute horrorshow.

So, I think that the way forward is a robot hoover, plus a cordless dyson for a whizz round once every couple of weeks.

I've heard the Eufy brand is quite good, but again - not for less than £300...

Either way, I'd better get something soon - I've sold my chunking Miele and I've only got an old Dyson DC35 handheld at the moment..

Can owners please advise - are any of the sub £300 robots any good? thanks

Nah the eufy are a bit rubbish tbh. Just like this will be and any without proper mapping.
I paid £220ish for the 360 S5 (gearbest) Xiaomi also has a few models with mapping under £300. But just be aware most of them can't store multiple maps (so if you put on a new floor it clears / restarts the map. Wiping any no go zones you set up )
Do any of these work well on carpets
If this is random navigation you can forget it will clean your room in any efficient manner
Neato does corners... roomba bin Is stupidly small - both have WiFi which is a total pain to set up.
Can any of these things handle pet hair? Not long hair just short cat hair.

What make is this 360 S5?
Is 360 s5 better than iRobot Roomba 671? Contemplating which one is better to get? There are versions with mop too but can’t see how this could work well
I have a random one and does just fine, just takes a bit longer. Sure you can spend more and I am sure you get more for your money but I have been really impressed by mine and did not really want to spend over £300 on a hover..
Had several Roomba’s down the years and had reliability problems with most of them. Moved over to Neatos a few years ago and they seem infinitely more reliable. Current model I own has wifi and a phone app that tells you when it’s cleaned and with a detailed map. They seem a little more expensive but keep an eye on amazon for warehouse deals

Will disagree with you as the reliability and the build quality of Irobot are unbeatable!
What happens if say your dog leaves a little brown present on the carpet? Heard horror stories that the robot hoovers smear it all over your house?!

Don't let the dog poop in your house, and you should probably be OK.
She’s done it once in her 3 years on this planet but don’t want to think of the consequences
dog poop usually dries pretty quickly, so unless you dog has chronic/explosive diarrhoea then I doubt this will be a problem. Also, I'm amazed to see there is such a thing as brand fanboysim with robotic hoovers. Sure there are good an bad ones, but some of the comparisons on here are a little difficult to believe. There are some good youtube videos of people actually doing tests to compare them. I'd recommend viewing those rather than basing your purchase on comments made here.

I've got the Xiaomi one - about 220 from Gearbest at the time. These are brilliant - laser mapping etc.
Only slight downside is that you need to buy magnetic strips (about 12 quid for about 6ft) to go under the carpet to block areas off (no 'virtual' blocking) - I'm not sure how this would work if you have a wood floor. It claims to have a drop sensor but I found I had to use a magnetic strip to stop it falling downstairs. I think they struggle with tassels on rugs (but I presume all robot cleaners would).
