Default robot vacuum question

So we had a roomba for about 5 years before it gave up the ghost. Wife then bought a shark cuz it was quieter, but it is only a little over a year old and its dead. So any of yall have recommendation on another? Dont want to go over 4$-500 really. Dog doesnt shed a lot, but wife does (have to clean the rollers every few days of her hair). House is one story, carpet bedrooms, hardwood everywhere else.

Yep Roborock. After LOTS of research it's what I went with. S4 seems to have the best power, app and uses Lidar. Love it and have 2 .

Why not another Roomba? It seems five years is good and usually a battery gets it going again.

Roomba is what we have and 5 years is pretty good, I think. The technology is improving as well.

We went with shark over roomba last time as the shark was quieter. I sleep during the day, she works from home, so thats kinda an important feature. We wont buy another shark. Just seeing what others have and their thoughts. She also likes the roomba that empties its own bin, but that may be a little out of budget

We have 3 Roombas. The newer one is better than the older ones.

We bought a Deebot four years ago for $200 and its still going. It does make weird noises when it starts up though.

Neato, I would buy another in a heartbeat if something happened to ours. We have the D5 and it has been great. I like that it has a path and isn't random.

I loved the Neato but I've had 5 and all of them were dead within a year from one problem or another.

I'm waiting until they come out with one that can pick up laundry, sniff it, and tell if it need to go in the clean or dirty pile. That's the only way one would ever be able to vacuum around my crew.

The wife got a eufy and says it's okay. That's okay with me as long as she uses it.
The only thing we've found is if power goes out, we live in the country, when it comes back on the vacuum will start running. Woke me up the first time and was dang near a fatality running around in the kitchen, bumping into chairs at 2:30 in the morning.
