Roborock’s brand new cleaning robot can be the perfect companion if you are on a tighter budget. The Q7 Max is Roborock’s first entry into the mid-range robot vacuum segment, offering a cheaper solution for those who need a helper to clean the house regularly. Though not a top-of-the-line unit, the Q7 Max carries its own weight with the more premium S-models.
Packed in a small body, is a high-capacity 470ML dustbin with a 350ML water tank in one case. Giving you the option to mop and vacuum at the same time, but not if you have area rugs lying around. The built-in dust bin is big enough that it doesn't have to be emptied frequently. Our review unit did not come with the optional Auto-Empty Dock Pure attachment - this optional device is supposed to automatically remove dust, into the attachment’s dust bag, when it is full. Which means even less time spent clearing the dust bin.
The Q7 Max’s suction prowess is exceptional for a mid-range robot. On paper, Roborock claims the Q7 is equipped with 4200Pa (Pascal) of suction power. For a better comparison, Robot vacuum cleaners work in the range from 2000 to 4000 Pa while stick vacuums go up to about 20000 Pa max. At 4200Pa, the Q7 Max’s suction strength is much stronger than all of Roborock’s previous models which ranged from 2000Pa for the S5 and S6 and 2500Pa for the S7.
Suck And Mop Simultaneously
Roborok cleaners are known for being able to clean dust and mop the dirt away with one go - and Q7 shares this Roborok DNA. The mopping mode is armed with an electronic pump with several waterflow levels that you can adjust to match the type of floor around your home. It also presses down 300G of consistent vibrating pressure for effective cleaning of your floor. Can you still switch on the mop function if you have rugs and carpets around the house? Not with the Q7 Max, unlike the S7, the Q7 doesn’t have the VibraRise function that will elevates the mop on carpet. So roll-up those carpets and rugs before you switch on the simultaneous mopping function.
The Q7 Max is equipped with the same PreciSense Precision LiDAR as the higher-end S series Roborok. The cleaning robot can map and navigate the surroundings using an array of sensors built around, on top and under the machine. It can detect stairs, furnitures and walls to avoid collisions, but in our experience cables and wires are still an issue.The Roborock Q7 Max is capable of customized cleaning schedules for each room, simply by setting the time on the app. Set no-go zones, no-mop zones and any other customization you can think of. It can also render a 3D map of your home complete with all the furnitures you have around, so you can see exactly where the robot is. Unlike its predecessor the S5, there are no cameras on the Q7 Max, but the 3D map more than makes up for it.
Affordability With Today's Smart Functions
As with everything today, the Q7 Max do respond to voice commands if linked with Alexa, Google Home or Siri. Roborock managed to come up with an efficient robot cleaner in the Q7 Max without all the extras of the S7 at a much lower price point. If all you need is an efficient robot cleaner that can schedule simple cleaning tasks, this robot is up for it. And you arrive home every night without having to worry about dust particles on your floor.
