'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards.

Best Roborock holiday deals

  • Current price: $950
  • Original price: $1300

The Roborock S7 Max Ultra is one of Roborock's flagship products and is a whopping $350 off right now. If you're wanting a high-end, capable, and trustworthy robot vacuum and mop, this is the machine for you. With 5,500Pa suction power, the Roborock S7 Max Ultra will keep all of your flooring surfaces free of dirt, debris, and pet hair. Couple that with Roborock's VibraRise Mopping system and your floors will be easily vacuumed and mopped all in one go. 

With the auto-lifting technology, you can rest assured that all of your soft flooring surfaces, like your carpets and rugs, will remain dry. The docking station is intelligent and capable. It is a self-cleaning, self-refilling, self-emptying, and self-washing machine, completely making this a hands-free cleaning experience.

Getting all of this for $950 this holiday shopping season is almost a steal and certainly not an opportunity you should pass up.

  • Current price: $330
  • Original price: $600

If you're looking to get your hands on a two-in-one robot vacuum and mop from Roborock, but don't need the docking station to do the manual work for you, the Roborock Q7 Max is calling your name. With 4200Pa suction and a simultaneous vacuum and mop function, your floors will shine.

Through the Roborock app, you can control your home's map, creating rooms and blocking off no-go zones as needed. The PreciSense LiDAR Navigation ensures that your home's map is accurate and that the robot recognizes and avoids common household objects like shoes and socks. If you decide later on down the road you'd like a docking station for the Q7 Max, you can purchase that separately.

  • Current price: $500
  • Original price: $870

If you're wanting a two-in-one machine that automatically empties the dust bin and offers 4200Pa suction, you can save $270 on the Roborock Q7 Max+ right now. This is a great way to get your hands on a Roborock robot vacuum and mop without dropping a ton of cash. Even better, the docking station is significantly slimmer than other two-in-one machines, making this a nice option for smaller homes and apartments where wall and floor space is limited.

Because the Docking Station only automatically empties the dust bin, you may be wondering where the water goes for the mop. When you lift up the lid on the top of the robot, you'll see the dust bin and the water tank have been combined to maximize both of their capacities. The dust bin can hold up to 470ml of dirt while the water tank can hold 350ml of cleaning solution. You'll need to manually fill the water tank as needed, but the machine will simultaneously vacuum and mop your floors otherwise.

How did we choose these holiday deals?

ZDNET only writes about deals we want to buy -- devices and products we desire, need, or would recommend. Our experts looked for deals that were at least 20% off (or are hardly ever on sale), using established price comparison tools and trackers to determine whether the deal is actually on sale and how frequently it drops. 

We also looked over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the deals we're recommending. Our recommendations may also be based on our own testing -- in addition to extensive research and comparison shopping. The goal is to deliver the most accurate advice to help you shop smarter.
