Roborock Qrevo Pro review: The robovac with the best value for money

We recently praised the Roborock Qrevo MaxV in our detailed review for its cleaning performance. We also appreciated its relatively affordable price, and considered it one of the robovacs offering the best value for money. However, there’s a slightly cheaper option worth considering, the Roborock Qrevo Pro.

It comes with fewer features, and costs a bit less compared to the Qrevo MaxV. Let’s see how it performs, and which one you should consider.

Basic but effective design

The Qrevo Pro looks very similar to the first Qrevo and the Qrevo MaxV. It features a vertical and fully autonomous station. The dock comes with two large water tanks, accessible from the top. The clean water one has a 4L capacity, while the other can collect up to 3.5L. There’s also a 2.7L dust bag, housed behind a removable panel at the front of the station. The design is basic and only available in white, and doesn’t necessarily integrate elegantly in an interior, but remains relatively discreet. In terms of size, the dock is relatively compact and narrow, measuring 340 x 487 x 512 mm.

As for the robot, it comes in a standard circular shape and measures 350 x 353 x 102 mm. Despite its lower-tier positioning, it’s well-equipped and boasts plenty of features. For instance, it uses both LiDAR technology for navigation and Reactive Tech obstacle detection. In addition, it comes with two rotating mop pads, and can extend one of them to clean along the baseboards. To vacuum, it uses a single bristleless roller brush, together with a side brush and a HEPA filter.

As for the build quality, Roborock clearly differentiates its products. This means the Qrevo Pro feels less sturdy and durable than the manufacturer’s other flagship products. It’s not bad per se, but the plastics aren’t the same quality and as solid as what the S8 Pro Ultra offers, for example. This is true of the dock, particularly the panels and water tanks, but also the robot, which has a somewhat loose bumping board. Thankfully, that’s not really an issue on a daily basis, but although it’s cheaper than some other models, the Qrevo Pro is still expensive and could have use better quality materials.

Supercharged and intuitive app

During the setup process, the robot creates a map of your home. Once it’s created, you can edit rooms, create virtual and no-go zones, adjust the floor surface, and edit the furniture. What’s more, the Qrevo Pro can save up to four maps and automatically position itself.

The Roborock app also lets you finely adjust the cleaning settings. You can not only control the suction power and mop dampness, but also the cleaning sequences. These settings can also be different from one room to the other.

The settings offer a great depth and breadth of customization and adjustments. As such, you can ask the robot to clean along the floor direction and automatically re-mop dirty areas. Similarly, the robot can either avoid carpets, lift the mops to avoid wetting them, or clean them with water. The dock offers many customization options, including the mop washing water temperature, the drying duration, and the washing frequency. There’s also an option for off-peak charging, helping save a few bucks on charging.

The Roborock Qrevo Pro can also be controlled using Google Assistant and Alexa. However, unlike the Qrevo MaxV, it doesn’t come with a built-in voice assistant.

Excellent vacuuming results

The Qrevo Pro comes with a strong 7,000 Pa suction power, perfect to vacuum hard floors and carpets. It does a great job at sucking up dirt, dust and small particles and leave the floors impressively clean. Its side brush sweeps along the baseboards, ensuring a complete coverage area.

I’ve put it to the test after a walk with my dog in muddy areas, who happily covered the floors with dust and sand. Thankfully, the Qrevo Pro cleaned it up effectively, both on hardwood floors and tiles. It can also reach into grouts well, ensuring there’s no dirt trapped in between tiles.

On carpets, the robot can automatically boost its suction power and clean them thoroughly. What’s more, it reaches deep into rugs to make sure trapped dirt gets cleaned up. Of course, a double roller brush would have been even more efficient, I’ve found the overall vacuuming results to be excellent.

Great mopping efficiency

The Qrevo Pro uses two rotating and liftable mop pads to clean the floors. The dock washes them with hot water before and after each cleaning cycle, providing better cleaning results. It also refills the robot’s built-in water tank, which allows it to constantly humidify the mop pads while cleaning. In addition, the robot can return to the dock to wash its mop pads at a preset frequency, ensuring the mop pads remain clean. The robot also lifts its mop pads when moving, ensuring it doesn’t uselessly wet areas it’s not cleaning.

In real life, the results are impressive. The Qrevo Pro efficiently mops the floors, and its extensible mop pad reaches the baseboards, ensuring a comprehensive cleaning. The FlexiArm Design is convincing when it comes to cleaning corners, as the robot moves around them and extends the mop to clean thoroughly.

The cleaning results are particularly good, with the Qrevo Pro removing most stains, including tough ones like dried coffee and sauce. During my tests, I’ve put a small amount of detergent in the water tank, as there’s no dedicated tank or cartridge. This, combined with the hot water, helped remove stains and dirt. The toughest ones weren’t always removed during the first pass. However, the robot uses AI and its camera to detect hard to clean areas and automatically re-mops them for best cleaning results. If I were nitpicking, I’d argue the VibraRise mop provides slightly better results, as it usually needs a single pass to remove most stains, but at much higher price point.

Flawless navigation & obstacle avoidance

The Qrevo Pro comes with both LiDAR and obstacle recognition. It navigates from room to room reliably. It’s never gotten lost or stuck during my tests, and always managed to reach the right rooms and go back to its dock.

The Reactive Tech obstacle avoidance technology works very well. It allows the robot to detect and recognize obstacles, efficiently navigating around them. The Qrevo Pro is able to detect shoes, toys, and other objects effectively. However, it sometimes struggles with cables, and the Qrevo MaxV does a better job sensing wires, thanks to its RGB camera.

Impressively silent and decent battery life

With its strong 7,000Pa suction power, I expected the Qrevo Pro to be relatively loud. To my surprise, it’s one of the quietest robot vacuum’s I’ve tested. Regardless of the mode, the noise level is impressively low, and I could work, watch TV, or have a conversation. I have to slightly nuance this, as I found the mop lifting mechanism to make a sharp mechanical noise. Thankfully, this isn’t annoying and only lasts a fraction of a second, but I initially wondered if something was wrong with the robot.

The self-emptying process is relatively loud, but can be turned off during do not disturb hours. Similarly, the robot can intelligently manage its emptying frequency and doesn’t have to do it after each cycle to avoid nuisances.

As for the battery life, Roborock promises up to 180 minutes of run time. Depending on the dirt levels and cleaning settings, it can clean up to 300 square meters on a single charge. In any case, it can automatically return to the dock to recharge and resume work when its battery is refilled.

Easy maintenance

The Qrevo Pro comes with a bristleless roller brush, prevents hair from tangling around it. To clean it, you just have to remove the roller brush and remove hair and dirt from the sides about once a week.

As for the dock, it uses hot water and hot air to wash and dry the mops. This limits bacteria, mildew, and bad odors, while cleaning them more efficiently. However, unlike more expensive Roborock models, the Qrevo Pro doesn’t come with a dedicated mop cleaning brush, and uses a washboard with plastic pimples to scrub the mop. This means it’s still a good idea to machine wash it once or twice a month, as it doesn’t clean the pads deeply.

To finish, the washboard itself is removable almost entirely, making it much easier to scrub and clean in the sink. Unfortunately, Roborock doesn’t even provide a brush to make this easier for users. As for the frequency, it’s best to do this once every two weeks or every week, as it tends to get pretty dirty quickly.

Is the Roborock Qrevo Pro the right robovac for you?

The Roborock Qrevo Pro offers excellent value-for-money. It comes with a robust feature set, including hot water mop washing, reliable obstacle avoidance, and a very comprehensive app. Its overall performance is excellent, with effective vacuuming and mopping capabilities that make it a worthy investment.

It’s an excellent purchase for those looking to enhance their home cleaning routine with a fully autonomous robot vacuum. It’s perfectly suitable for families with pets or children. It detects and avoids obstacles and it’s easy to clean by preventing hair tangles around the roller brush.

If you’re looking for one of the best robot vacuums but prefer not to pay more than $1,500, this robot is the one for you. For the ones hesitating with the Qrevo MaxV, the main differences are the obstacle avoidance system, which uses a camera on the MaxV, and the built-in assistant. If these features are important to you, and if you often have cables lying on the floor, the Qrevo MaxV is probably a better option. Otherwise, the Qrevo Pro is a perfect option.
