Move over Roomba, Eufy enters the war of robot vacuums! It would be quite fun to pitch these two against each other in a Robot Wars style battle, but for now, I’ll just have to release the Eufy RoboVac 11 into my living room to see how it does. Essentially it’s a round vacuum on wheels with IR and impact sensors that drives round your appartment or house doing the hoovering. It will drive all over the room, paying special attention to the edges with it’s side brushes, to gather up dirt. When (after about 2-3hrs) it’s low on power, it will try to make it’s way back to the docking station to recharge. You have a remote control for easy setup. If you just want a simple vacuum sequence, press the big play button, but if you want to set a timer, manually steer the vacuum or similar, you can do that too.
I’ve used it for a few weeks and really like the set and forget nature of it. It’s not too noisy, so much so that I can easily work from home as it goes about it’s business. It’s great for hardwood floors and low carpets, and doesn’t freak out if it hits a rug or similar. It’s only real nemisis is bundles of cables on the floor, I’ve had to rescue it from those. The suction is great and it does pick up particulates very well.
Overall, I like it.
* Easy and intuative remote controlled robot vacuum
* Can go under furniture
* Great suction
* Easy to empty
* Remember to turn on the power switch on the side, I forgot during testing.
