I purchased the eufy because of its high suction level, because it was the thinnest robovac and would fit under more furniture compared to the thicker roomba or other models that would not. It also had great reviews.
I have a rag doll cat who sheds like crazy. To the point where i have to vacume everyday, except I work a lot and I don’t always have the time. I also have a parrot who enjoys throwing his food on the floor. So on my first use of my new eufy I followed it around. It sucked up everything without issue. My floors were clean. Of course I went with my hand held afterward to get into the places it couldn’t fit. It didn’t get stuck anywhere and it didn’t fall down my stairs. And the way it goes back to the dock when it is finished is great.
I had it run every day and I would clean it after every use. Cleaning it is really easy. Just empty the dust bin, remove and clean off the brushes etc....less than 5 minutes. You don’t have to do this every time, but I’m anal like that.
My floors were clean all the time. Almost like I didn’t have a cat shedding, messy bird problem.
After about 3 months I noticed that the eufy would sometimes do one room more than once and
Not do for example, my bedroom. And it would keep redoing the same place until either it had to recharge and went back to its base or I manually controlled it to go where it wasn’t going. Eventually I started manually controlling it almost all the time because it would just keep forgetting to go everywhere if I didn’t. It was kind of defeating the purpose of having a robovac in the first place. I wrote to Eufy about this and they informed me that it does not have a mapping feature (of course I knew this, but still expected it to do my whole 890 square foot condo) they were quite helpful and offered to send me free replacement brushes or the opportunity to return it for a refund. I asked if they would be coming out with a model that has a mapping feature and they told me yes, within the year but not sure when. So I opted to return mine and get the one with the mapping feature when it comes out. Please keep in mind I didn’t return it cause the product sucked. I returned it because I wanted that mapping feature. Their replies were always prompt and helpful and I was able to return it without a hitch and they even refunded me the fee it cost to ship it back.
All in all the robovac was great and Eufy is a great company and I will definitely order the next model robovac with the mapping feature.
However, the sensors are mediocre at best. After multiple successful uses, I decided to run it at night. Woke up the next morning to find it at the bottom of my stairs, and not at it's dock. Ran it during the day after a charge and everything seemed to be working well. When suddenly I hear it tumbling down the stairs again . This now happens with such frequency, that it's defeated the purpose as I have to constantly watch it.
I purchased this one specifically for the sensors. Just wish they were better, at actually detecting the stairs they were designed for.
If you don't have stairs, this is a great device. Battery life is great. Noise level is quieter than I expected. Not to mention after multiple falls down the stairs I can assure you the build quality is second to none. It's even taken multiple chunks out of my white enameled baseboards on it's tumbles, but this little bad boy just keeps going.
Unfortunately even with all those great things I couldn't be more disappointed.
Buy at your own risk. Or I'm sure you can find a decent baby gate while you're on Amazon site anyways to add to your purchase.
Eufy customer service is fantastic within hours of posting my review I heard from them as they were wanting to correct the problem. I shipped the defective unit back and had a replacement within days. I waited a while to update this review as I wanted to make sure these drop sensors and vacuum were working as designed. 2 weeks in and not one drop down the stairs! Much happier this time around. Definitely happy with my purchase
Thank you Eufy for a great product and great support.
Is very good at getting edges and navigates under the table and chairs and around chair legs with ease.
Gets a majority of dust and dirt. Used it before bed and emptied fully packed canister then used it immediately after to see what's leftover. Only filled up about a quarter of canister. So definitely gets most of area on one charge, I'd have to say about 80%
Didn't realize how much a daily vaccum would keep everything else clean, like baseboards, radiator, and low shelves. Just less dust to fly around onto things I guess.
Bathroom rugs now look nice all the time, instead of having sock lint and hair.
Is very quiet unless going over edges, then it makes a plastic clanging noise.
Cons: as mentioned before, it wastes a decent amount of battery and time repeating areas.
If it runs out of battery and charges, it doesn't finish where it left off.
2. The slim profile makes cleaning under furniture very easy.
3. Extremely silent, and does a very good job of cleaning the floor. The remote is extremely handy.
4. Being a budget vacuum, I did not expect this product to have any advanced navigation capabilities. The spot and edge cleaning modes are useful. However, a simple back and forth cleaning mode would have made this a more efficient product. The random/auto nagivation is simply too primitive. We have learnt to combine the 'auto' and 'spot' cleaning modes with the remote to complete the task of cleaning quickly. There's at least one budget robotic vacuum out there that supports multiple automatic cleaning modes (zig-zag/back and forth, spiral and polygon, besides spot and edge). Perhaps Eufy can take a leaf out of their book.
5. It seems to be able to detect light colored obstacles easily, and is able to navigate around them without collision; but it is blind to dark colored objects, and routinely bumps against them. However, the impact is not worrisome.
6. The boundary strips are a terrible idea. A virtual wall (available from other budget vacuum makers) is a much better option.
Update after nearly 4 months of regular usage:
We found that simply running the device in 'auto' mode is sufficient for most purposes. We let it run for 10-15 minutes in each room, and it does an excellent job.
Besides emptying the dust bin every two or three days, one has to remember to clean the filters at least twice a month.
- I still wish the product had a zig-zag cleaning mode like the iLife V series, but I don't miss it as much as I did when I first wrote this review.
- I wish there was a way to time the auto mode. The only option available is the single room mode in which the device runs for 30 minutes. Given that it takes only 15 minutes or so to clean a small to medium sized room, a shorter duration program would have come in very handy.
I bought this product on September 18, 2018 - it worked so well, it was so helpful with my busy life. Now it takes a lot longer to clean my carpet and it doesn't clean half as good as it used to when I bought it.
I wish I could get a refund for this.
Good product - but it's life is very limited. 4 months for this price?
As much as I loved it, I am very disappointed in this product now.
Let's talk about return to home function for a bit - this robot's return to home is LIGHT YEARS ahead of Deebot. I was shocked to find how easily and smartly it detects the charger/base station. It's algorithms are simply far superior to Deebot. It will first follow the walls from room to room till it reaches about 10 feet from the charger, and then it simply starts moving straight to the charger. We even have some furniture between the robot and charger's line of sight - it simply moves AROUND them when it is within 10 feet. It seems to be using some form of laser based radar to detect the charger. Pretty neat for this price point!
This robot is the first of many robot vacuums in my 2400 square feet house that has a success rate of 95% of cleaning on schedule and then returning to its base station everyday! And that is the one thing that matters MOST in a robot vacuum
The 2 strips that they included for free are also a unique feature - i've installed them in the balcony doors and the entrance door and it never crosses them. They've even included a spare HEPA filter!
All in all a very good package for the price!
The Robovac 30 is not without problems. The battery could be better. However, I'm willing to accept the battery life when I can buy four Robovac 30s for the price of one Samsung or two Robovac 30s and spare parts for the price of one Roomba 980.
I'm happy with this unit and will happily buy another one.
Observation: his dust canister is small so it needs to be emptied after every use. I LOVE him. I hate vacuuming. It's so wonderful to sit with a cuppa tea and watch Harry toodle around. He's quiet and unobtrusive. The pets ignore him (after they get past the OMG whatt;s that phase = 2 operations). He takes at most 5 minutes to clean/empty.
My only unanswered question at this point is does Amazon sell the necessary filters and brushes...
I haven't even bothered to learn how to use the more advanced functions because you just press the button and it does its thing.
I have 2 dogs that are pretty heavy shedders (short hair) and this thing handles it like a champ. I have to clear the brush underneath every couple of rounds because the hair builds up there a little, but that happens to literally all vacuum cleaners ever.
The strips are working good to stop the vaccum from going in the Christmas tree.
I definitely recommend.
