Xiaomi Mijia M30 Pro: Steel blades, S-Cross AI, 7000 Pa Suction! THE BEST Xiaomi robot vacuum 2024

Xiaomi Mijia M30 Pro Xiaomi

Hey guys, welcome to RobotObzor! Today, we’ll take a look at a newly released vacuum, the Xiaomi Mijia M30 Pro – The company’s current flagship model. A lot has been updated since last year’s model, namely a better object detection system, now with backlights. Plus, Xiaomi’s engineers added a new way to cut hair on the turbo brush. Xiaomi Mijia M30 Pro also self-cleans, washes mopping pads with hot water and dries them with warm air. And we’re just getting started, the 2024 model boasts sewage and water connections, an improved floor washing algorithm along the baseboard and increased suction power of up to 7,000 Pa. Overall, this robot fits so many functions in it, and it won’t hurt your pockets. On sales, the new Xiaomi can be ordered for only $560. Usually it’s within $700-750. Now, I’ll test the Xiaomi Mijia M30 Pro in detail, highlight the pros and cons and then tell you what I think of it. Don’t forget to like and subscribe, and let’s get this show on the road!


The robot came in this branded box:

I’ll note that according to the internet, it’s also compatible with Xiaomi Mijia OMNI 2.


Let’s see Xiaomi Mijia M30 Pro’s design. Just so you know, this robot is also called the Xiaomi Mijia Infinite Robot Vacuum-MOP M30 PRO. Don’t get confused, just focus on the C107 part number. It’s round and white, which is standard. It stands 103 mm (4 In.) from the floor.

Navigation is controlled through Lidar. There’s no wall sensor on the bumper, which isn’t great, and I’ll later show why.

The front has a system of sensors and cameras with illumination for accurate obstacle avoidance. LED lights give the robot the ability to bypass objects on the floor even in complete darkness.

This is thanks to the AI implemented in the robot. The robot understands exactly what is in front of it on the floor. The manufacturer says that it can identify 55 types of objects straight out the box. I’ll note that the camera doesn’t broadcast its image onto your phone. Therefore, you can’t remotely look after our home, like you can in other models.

The housing features two buttons. To prevent the Lidar from getting stuck under low furniture, it comes with a spring-loaded lid.

Underneath the top lid, you’ll find the dirt container. The filtration system uses both mesh and HEPA filters. Positioned on the side is a curtain for self-cleaning of the container at the station. It’s important to note that the robot itself doesn’t have a water tank. The wipes are moistened only at the station according to the intervals specified in the settings.

There’s only 4 height sensors, but there’s also a carpet detection sensor. The robot only has one three beamed side brush, which is easy to remove. Interestingly, the main brush unit isn’t fluid; just the lid, doubling as a scrub.

The central brush has bristles and can be taken apart on both sides to clean up tangled hair and fur.

Behind the brush, there’s two rotating holders with wipes. These wipes are automatically lifted while vacuuming and when the robot gets on carpets.

Unlike other top models, the wipes don’t extend to the edge. But Xiaomi solves this problem by turning the case backward, letting the wipes reach the edge.

Now, onto the station. It’s really handy that not only can you remove the driveway for the robot, but also the inner tray where the wipes are washed. This makes washing the station ten times easier.

The station’s main feature is built-in blades on the platform that cut through hair tangled on the center brush.

As the blades rotate, the cut hair is sucked into a bag, found in a small tray under the blades.

The bag, located under the lid, is pretty standard.

Under the top cover, there’s a 4-liter (1 G.) tank for dirty water and another for clean water.

There’s no detergent compartment, so you’ll need to add detergent manually to the clean water tank if you need to. On top of the station, there’s three buttons.

It’s important to note that this station heats water up to 60 degrees (140 F.) for washing the wipes and also dries them with warm air afterwards.

Connecting the station to the sewage system is pretty straightforward. Let’s remove the tanks already in the station, put the module in place, connect the connectors from the back, attach the pipes to the connection points for sewage and water supply. After connecting the magnetic control block, the station is ready!

The module includes a 900 ml (30.5 Oz.) compartment for detergent, which automatically mixes with water when washing wipes. This is definitely a plus!

Overall, it’s clear that Xiaomi has put an effort into improving their robots. We’ll circle back to the pros and cons at the end of the video. Let’s keep going!

Technical features

Xiaomi Mijia M30 Pro’s main features, given by the manufacturer, are up on the screen:


  • Battery Li-Ion 5200 mA*h.
  • Suction power up to 7000 Pa.
  • Cleaning area> 200 sq.m (656 ft.).
  • Dirt container 400 ml (13.5 Oz.)
  • Water tank not included.
  • Obstacle size 20 mm (.78 In.)
  • Size: 350*103 mm (13.7×4).


  • Suction power up to 1000 Wt.
  • Clean water tank: 4 L (1.05 G.).
  • Dirty water tank: 4 L (1.05 G.).
  • Trash bag: 2.5 L (.66 G.).
  • Size: 490*400*584 mm (19.2×15.7 x 22.9 In.).

The most important thing here is the increased power, compared to last year, which I’ll definitely have to verify. The water tanks also got bigger, which is good if you don’t want to connect the station to your utilities. For those who are interested, the height of the station with the raised lid is about 815 mm (32 In.).


When it comes to functions, the robot is primarily designed for the Chinese market, so it connects to the Mi Home app with Chinese regionality. However, the interface is in English. The app isn’t the quickest, as it uses Chinese servers, but its usable.

Xiaomi Mijia M30 Pro: Functions

With this robot, the world’s in your hands. Well, not entirely. It lacks a correctly implemented periodicity of cloth washing, there’s no way to select return to the station for cloth washing after each cleaned zone or to flexibly customize the periodicity of cloth washing. They offer just three modes: return to station after 5, 8, or 10 square meters (53/86/107 Sq.f.). I couldn’t find a custom setting for cleaning parameters specific to each room. Additionally, there’s no function for remotely tracking the house through the robot’s camera. However, these features aren’t life or death.


Full video review Xiaomi Mijia M30 Pro:

Let’s move on to the tests. First and foremost, we’ll check the M30 Pro’s navigation in a room with obstacles. The robot first navigates around the perimeter of the room, then proceeds to clean the entire available area in a snake-like pattern. It sees and neatly avoids the legs of furniture, carefully sweeping around them before coming back to the station. It passed this test with flying colors.

As for the rest of the house, the robot cleaned room after room first around the perimeter, then with a snake-like pattern. After every 10 square meters (86 sq.f.), it returned to the station to rinse the wipes before continuing cleaning from where it left off. In the end, it left the apartment spotless, just like the model before it.

Object Recognition

Regarding the object Recognition system, with good light, the robot carefully avoided all 6 objects on the floor and recognized and mapped 4 of them with corresponding icons.

In complete darkness, it could still recognize objects, but didn’t avoid them every time. Sometimes it went around the fake poop, and sometimes it drove over it. It also slightly moved the wires.

This is still better than the previous model, but there’s room to grow and improve. Despite this, the robot is tidier than most comparable models, and the implemented system is an advantage. However, it would be helpful if there was a way to see exactly what the robot has recognized, as you can’t click on the icons.

Suction power

When it comes to how strong the vacuum is, here’s something interesting – the Xiaomi Mijia M30 Pro could only clean dirt from cracks that were 2mm (0.078 In.) deep.

Comparing this to other models, the Mijia OMNI B101CN could clean dirt from 10mm (.39 In.) cracks, while the OMNI 1S and OMNI 2 managed 4mm (.15 In.). Surprisingly, when tested, the new M30 Pro had the weakest performance. One reason might be because its center brush unit doesn’t move as fluidly. However, it’s possible there are other factors at play. You can say that my test isn’t perfect, but I judge based on real life results, and I just can’t confirm its claimed high suction power.


Despite that, it redeemed itself on the laminate. Only a small amount of dirt is left in corners, where round robot vacuum cleaners struggle to reach. Some hair and fur are tangled around the center brush, but the majority of the dirt is collected in the dirt bag. Overall, the test was successful!

Carpet cleaning

I scattered the same dirt on a short carpet, and I can say that it cleans the carpet really well. It can even do an ok job on medium carpets, so I’ll give it the credit it deserves.

Carpet cleaning while mopping

When it comes to mopping with carpets around, you have two options for what the robot should do. The first option is to have the robot automatically lift the wipes when it goes onto carpets. This lets the robot vacuum and mop the floor simultaneously, keeping the carpets dry and clean.

The second option is to activate the automatic carpet avoidance function while mopping. This is useful for tall and medium carpets to prevent the wipes from touching the carpeting if needed.

Scrubbing dirt

The robot does a good job of scrubbing the dirt. It cleaned the area without leaving any streaks or marks.

Scrubbing hard stains

But what surprised me the most was that the robot was able to scrub even difficult dried coffee and sauce stains. Of course not on the first attempt, but it eventually got it. Many models can’t even get this result, so its definitely this robot’s key feature. The manufacturer mentions this in ads, pointing out the improved rotation of napkins. And the robot itself has become heavier and accordingly presses the wipes harder on the surface.

Blind zone near the baseboard

The efficiency of floor washing along the baseboard deserves special attention. It’s noticeable that even with scrolling the body, there’s still a blind spot between runs. So washing along the baseboard isn’t perfect, but it’s still better than models lacking this function.

The lack of a wall sensor also proved to be a drawback. I think it would really benefit from one, and move along the wall better. Th blind spots range from 3 to 8 mm (.11-.31 In.).

Wipe cleaning quality

Now, let’s talk about how well it cleans the wipes. Even after tougher tests, the wipes look much cleaner after being washed at the station. The water heating function definitely helps improve the cleaning efficiency. At home, the wipes rinse well at the station after washing the floor, with only a bit of dirt being washed out under the water, which is really good!

Cleaning the station itself is very easy. There’s a self-cleaning function that you can start with a button on the station, but it’s still better to occasionally remove the tray and rinse them in the sink.

Self-cleaning quality

I checked the dirt container and turbo brush self cleaning simultaneously. The container is full, and the brush has hair wrapped on it. When we put the robot back on the station, we saw that the dirt container was fully self-cleaned, and most of the hair on the brush had been cut off. Some hair stayed between the bristles, but after the second cycle, it was spotless. I can confidently say that this is extremely effective and cool. In everyday conditions, this should be more than perfect for you. Props to the engineers!


The robot is awesome off-road. It’s able to cross a 2 cm (.7 In.) board without any problems!

Dark spaces

There’s an issue with navigating over black carpets, and surprisingly, it’s not because of the sensors on the bottom of the robot. Instead, it’s due to the object detection system, which mistakes black carpets for gaps, causing the robot to turn backward.

Interestingly, this problem doesn’t occur on regular hard black surfaces. Turning off the system lets it freely drive on the carpets, but that kinda defeats its purpose. So, unfortunately, this test wasn’t successful.


Well, as for the volume, it’s standard, in the range of 57-72 dB depending on the selected mode.

Ups and downs

Xiaomi Mijia M30 Pro robot vacuum cleaner was thoroughly reviewed and tested. Our evaluation system 170 points, beating the previous flagship Xiaomi Mijia OMNI 1S by 3 points. The result is good, but not enough to get to the TOP 10 in the overall ranking of tested robots. All because of a number of comments that influenced the evaluation.

Now, I’ll highlight the pros and cons, and share with you my opinion on the robot. I liked the following:

  1. The object recognition system, that more or less does its main job.
  2. A self cleaning function with hair removal using blades in the station.
  3. Good vacuuming and mopping on any surfaces.
  4. The vacuum can scrub even hard stains.
  5. An improved floor washing algorithm along the baseboard. Although it doesn’t work perfectly, it’s still better than nothing.
  6. The wipe lifts when returning to the station and when it detects carpets.
  7. Good self-cleaning.
  8. Wipes are washed with hot water.
  9. Wipes are dried with warm air.
  10. The station is easy to maintain and clean thanks to the removable tray and trap.
  11. The vacuum can be connected to sewage and water.
  12. Good off-road.
  13. Large bags in the base.
  14. A good price, counting the possibilities.

As for some bugs, theres just as many of them. I’ll list them from the most critical to just little remarks:

  1. The higher suction power could not be confirmed.
  2. No wall sensor, because of which it starts bumping along the walls.
  3. There are still blind spots when washing the floor along the baseboard, which is also partially due to the lack of a wall sensor.
  4. The vacuum doesn’t get the corners.
  5. The object detection system still needs some work.
  6. There’s no function to see the camera through your phone, even with the camera being available.
  7. Limited options to customize the frequency of cloth washing.
  8. No water tank in the robot
  9. With object recognition enabled, the robot is afraid of black carpets.
  10. Robot vacuum cleaners are designed for the Chinese market.

As a result, the robot lost at least 21 points for all these remarks, which would have allowed it to break into the top 10, and maybe even into the top 5. Nevertheless, despite a number of complaints, in my opinion, the main advantages outweigh them. Especially considering the cost of the robot on sales.

Nevertheless, Xiaomi Mijia M30 Pro definitely deserves its attention, and personally, I think this is the best Xiaomi robot vacuum in 2024!

It cleans accurately and qualitatively, maximizes its autonomy thanks to the station, which is equipped with almost all modern features, while looking stylish and half the price of the flagships from competing brands.

So if you want to choose the most top-of-the-line Xiaomi model – this robot is perfect for you!

On this note, I’d like to end the review. If you still have questions, make sure to leave them in the comments down below! Have fun shopping, bye!
