'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping.

The Roborock S8 Pro Ultra is $600 off, an all-time low price

Roborock has dropped the price of its latest and greatest two-in-one robot vacuum and mop, the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra, on both Amazon and the Roborock website. Occasionally, we've seen Roborock drop the price by $400, specifically around Black Friday, but this is the biggest price drop yet for the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra. If you've been eyeing a high-end machine to take the stress out of vacuuming and mopping, there isn't a better time or deal. But act quickly -- this deal may not stick around.

Right now, only the black version of the S8 Pro Ultra remains in stock on Amazon and on Roborock's website

Also: Roborock S8 MaxV Ultra review: The most powerful robot vacuum I've tested

The S8 Pro Ultra is a self-cleaning, self-emptying, self-drying, and self-refilling machine, meaning it's a completely hands-free cleaning experience. The S8 Pro Ultra keeps my floors looking fantastic despite having a baby, two big dogs, and an indoor cat constantly making messes and shedding. I've spent over half a year with the S8 Pro Ultra running daily through my home, so when I tell you I love it, I mean it.

Very few robot vacuums can efficiently handle the amount of dog hair that gets on my carpet, and the S8 Pro Ultra is one of them. With suction up to 6,000Pa, you can choose how much power you need for each job. My tile flooring doesn't need the maximum power, but my carpet certainly does. Pairing all that power with the VibraRise 2.0 Mopping System, my tile floors shine at the end of every cleaning job.

And you don't need to worry about your carpets or rugs getting wet. The S8 Pro Ultra lifts the mop head as needed. The DuoRoller Riser brush can also be lifted, meaning that the robot is as efficient as possible when traveling from one end of your home to the other to complete a job. This isn't a necessary feature, but a thoughtful one, to say the least.

I love my Roborock S8 Pro Ultra, especially at this price, thanks to this deal. It's high-end, capable, low-maintenance, and intelligent, a robot vacuum recipe for success.
