[REVIEW] Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra – The Ultimate Vacuum is Here!

Throughout my review for the past few years with smartphones, tablets, laptops, and wearables; there isn’t a significant quantum leap like what robot vacuum has evolved.

Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra

From bumper-car vacuums to smart vacuums equipped with 3D LiDAR sensor vacuum, mop, and self-cleaning. Thanks to the folks from Roborock I get to review their top-of-the-line smart vacuum, Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra that keeps your floor and even rug pristine clean for weeks without lifting a finger. This is thanks to the automatic Empty Wash Fill Dock that does what it sounds like, emptying the dustbin, refilling clean water, and dumping out dirty water to a separate reservoir.


The dock that comes with it is quite expansive compared with just a self-emptying dustbin vacuum. This is because it comes with three separate containers; one for clean water, a reservoir for dirty water, and one for the dustbin bag. It definitely would take up some space, especially the additional entrance ramp that is attached to the dock for the S7 MaxV to charge and perform self-cleaning. The dock dimension is 422 x 504 x 420mm while the robot vacuum measured 353 x 350 x 96.5mm.

Coming to the robot vacuum, it has a sporty design; probably because of the matte black with some red accents around the edges. Three physical buttons; spot cleaning, power, and return to dock. If you have children at home, you can enable child lock by pressing and holding the spot clean button for a few seconds until you hear “Child Lock is On” or “Child Lock is Off”. You can also toggle that in the app.

The lid cover is where you can access the filter in the robot vacuum for cleaning and maintenance. You can run water with the filter for depth cleansing.

On the underside of the robot vacuum, you will find a rubber brush roll and a single side brush. A microfiber mopping pad and a 200ml water tank to feeds water to the microfiber mopping pad.

There are two cameras and a LED spotlight placed on the front that are used for the ReactiveAI Obstacle Avoidance to identify obstacles such as sofa, table feet, electrical cords, and even pet waste (didn’t get to test that as I don’t have a pet).

How Does It Work?

After setting it up, the next thing you need to do is connect it to the Roborock app. Weirdly enough, there’s no QR code to be found on the box or user manual. You need to search “Roborock” on your Google Play store or Apple App Store. The pairing is as simple as selecting the model and following the wizard guide to connect it to your home Wi-Fi network.

For the first time, the S7 MaxV robot vacuum would scan your home by using the 3D LiDAR sensor, others sensors, and cameras to plot your home’s floor plan. It could even identify furniture as well as differentiate tile, hardwood, and carpet.

Once the mapping is completed, it would label the rooms (you can reassign them through the app). You can also add a virtual wall or forbidden area in case you have corners where you wouldn’t want the robot vacuum to go near. It also supports multi-floor cleaning and it would store in the app.

If you add it to Alexa, you can also summon Alexa to clean specific rooms instead the whole house. As for Google Home, it would only have the basic start and stop vacuum summons.

Like any other hybrid smart vacuum, the S7 MaxV Ultra is more advanced than others. Aside from normal floor mop and vacuum, this robot can even detect carpet and tune up the suction up to 5,100Pa for more effective cleaning while raising the mopping plate by 5mm. It would also add the areas as no mop zones.

Since I’m talking about mopping, the VibraRise mopping would sonically vibrate the microfiber mopping plate 3,000 times per minute to add a scrubbing motion, and the water tank diffuses fresh water onto it.

Once the water tank is emptied, it would return to the dock for a refill, at the same time the microfiber mopping pad gets cleaned and the dirty water will be sucked into the reservoir.

How Clean?

The Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra can vacuum pretty well on tiles and hardwood, picking up specks of dust and even hairs. Mopping capabilities would not beat a manual mop but it does fine even scrubbing light greasy and stubborn stains. This is one step level better than just vacuuming alone.

Do expect every time cleaning, the floor would be damped for a couple of minutes before it dried off.

Remote View & Chat

If you have furkids at home, by having such great assistance to keep your floor clean, the live view option on the vacuum allows you to check your house and your pet. You can also talk to people remotely with the onboard mic.


The 5,200 mAh battery can offer up to 180 minutes between charges, due to my small space it cleans two floors about 600 sqft, and leave me with more than 50% battery left. I’m sure, it should be able to fully clean a four-bedroom two-storey house on a single charge.


It is not fully maintenance-free, aside refill clean water and clear off the dirty water in the reservoir. There’s some others maintenance like filters, brushes, sensors as well as the dust bag. The app will not prompt you for cleaning or maintenance but you can always check in the app itself.


The Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra retails at RM 11,399, which sounds expensive. However, the amount of features, technology, and experiences you get isn’t necessarily unreasonable.

Anyhow, Roborock Malaysia would always offers crazy deals during flash sales and this smart vacuum can go as low as sub RM 6,000. Matter of fact, this coming 12.12, you can get it for just RM 5,099.
