Who should buy Roborock E5

  • If you are new to robot vacuums, the Roborock E5 might be an excellent choice because it is very easy to use and has an affordable price so you won’t risk spending too much money.
  • If you live in a small house or an apartment that has a simple floor plan, the Roborock E5 might be able to clean your whole house because it follows a preprogrammed cleaning pattern.
  • If you have carpets and hard floors, you might be impressed with the carpet boost of the Roborock E5 as it can automatically increase the suction power when detecting carpets.
  • If you have many low-lying furniture, the Roborock E5 can easily reach under the sofa, bed, or other furniture without getting stuck because it has a low height of up to 9,5 cm only.

Who should NOT buy Roborock E5

  • If you live in a large house with a lot of rooms, it might be better to look for other robot vacuums equipped with a smart navigation system like the Roborock S6 MaxV and the Ecovacs Deebot Ozmo 920 which have a higher price.
  • If you have areas that you don’t want the robot vacuum to go, such as areas with a lot of cables or the area where you put the pet’s water bowl, you might want to look for robot vacuums that can create a virtual boundary in the app like in the Roborock S4 Max or a robot vacuum that comes with a magnetic strip like the Bagotte BG600Max.

Verdict

This is our verdict of the Roborock E5 based on several hours of research of reviews from both experts and users.
Updated 19-11-2021

The Roborock E5 is an affordable robot vacuum which makes it suitable for anyone especially those who are new to robot vacuums. However, this also means that it lacks some advanced features that other more expensive robot vacuums have. Still, it can deliver efficient vacuuming and mopping.

It is not equipped with a smart navigation system like the LiDAR navigation system but it has a gyroscope navigation system so it follows a preprogrammed cleaning pattern. Therefore, it is still better than other robot vacuums that navigate randomly. It follows a zigzag pattern to get through all the areas of your room. However, this type of navigation system is more suitable for houses that don’t have a complicated floor plan. The Roborock E5 is not equipped with a smart mapping ability so it doesn’t know where it already cleaned and hasn’t cleaned yet.

You can control the Roborock E5 using three methods: the app, remote control, and voice control. The app is easier to use because your phone is always with you and you can immediately control the robot vacuum. It also allows you to control the Roborock E5 even if you are not at home but only if you are connected to WiFi. The remote control is great if you have other family members that don’t have the app installed on their phone so that they can also control the robot vacuum. Using voice integrations, such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant is the most convenient method because you can control the Roborock E5 using your voice only.

The app doesn’t show a created map since the Roborock E5 is not equipped with a smart mapping ability, unlike the Roborock S6 that has a customizable map. Therefore, it also doesn’t support virtual boundaries and selective room cleaning. The app is equipped with basic controls only, unlike other more expensive robot vacuums that have more advanced features.

The Roborock E5 has a maximum suction power of up to 2500 Pa. With this suction power, it can provide efficient cleaning on any floor type. It is also equipped with a carpet boost where it can automatically increase the suction power when detecting carpets. This allows the Roborock E5 to provide a thorough cleaning of carpets. It has a large dust bin capacity of up to 0,6L so you don’t have to frequently empty the dustbin.
Aside from vacuuming, it can also mop. It can remove light stains from the floor which makes your floor look cleaner. However, you still need to use your traditional stick mop because the Roborock E5 cannot remove tough stains from the floor. Its mopping function is great for maintenance only.

Overall, the Roborock E5 is suitable for those who are new to robot vacuums, those who live in a small house, and those who are on a tight budget. It might have a cheap price but it can still provide an outstanding cleaning performance which makes it worth the buy.
