I absolutely love my Roomba that I bought a few years ago. But boy has technology changed since then! With the new Roomba S9+ you don’t even need to empty the dirt bin on the unit anymore. The S9+ includes the Roomba Clean Base which is a charging station that plays double duty as an automatic empty point. So when your Roomba is all full and has completed a job it can safely return to the base and automatically deposit its contents into the clean base. The base itself takes replacement bags that honestly last a really long time. I have had mine for over a year and have replaced the bag twice. This truly is the best auto-empty robot vacuum on the market today.
As for the vacuum itself, this is Roomba’s most advanced robot vacuum. It has the most suction in the industry and has one of the most advanced floor mapping technologies. In my experience, the S9+ is also quite a bit quieter than some of the older or less expensive models.
One of the best things about the S9+ is that you can take the vacuum to other floors in your house and it will auto map those as well. Add that to the fact that you can create virtual “no go” areas where the vacuum will avoid (like places with lots of cords) and you have the most advanced robot vacuum on the market with auto-empty.
Buying this unit gets you much more future-proof technology which will ensure that you aren’t replacing your Roomba anytime soon. This is about as close to Buy it For Life as a robot vacuum gets!
