"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication"-Leonardo Devinci [Just like EUFY] It is now the nearly the end of 2020 and still going STRONG, SMART. SLEEK-- no need to replace battery, yet especially with the rare on/off switch on the bottom side. Also, with the tempered glass top still no scratches (all pictures updated).

Original Review To set your expectation consider yourself LUCKY to have found this Eufy even though it is not APP operated, YET still out preforms all competition and has built on remote holder for scheduling with excellent client support to help replace also just press button for maximum cleaning on unit. Eufy is made by Anker ( approved) an incredible technology company that offer such inexpensive and extraordinary innovative power that you can find their products on the Apple site and all of my experiences have been nothing, but amazing with Anker so when I realized Eufy was an Anker product I knew I scored big ti...

Excellent Robot Vacuum, Especially for the Price
I have been an iRobot Roomba buyer since 2007. My last Roomba bit the dust this month, and I did a ton of research before buying a replacement. I went with the Eufy for a few reasons: price point, cleaning power, quietness, and sleek design. Price: Very reasonable. Almost reasonable enough that I'd consider getting another one for my second floor. For now I'll just carry it upstairs. Cleaning power: This thing sucks... It's suction is much stronger than my Roombas have had. It picks up so much dust and pet hair. We do a full vacuum every other week with my Dyson, so I think of the robot vacuum as a supplemental vacuum. I was shocked at how much was in the dustbin after it's inaugural cleaning! The picture attached to this is from that cleaning. It also gets a ton of dust in the little dust filter. In one of the video reviews I watched, the reviewer said it didn't pick up anything in that dust filter... So maybe my carpet is particularly dusty, because it has a thick layer after each cleaning. Quietness: I work from my home office, and this thing is quiet enough that I don't even turn it off during conference calls. This might be the thing I am most impressed with. My last Roomba was LOUD-- you couldn't even have a conversation with someone in the same room, let alone someone on speakerphone. Sleek design: I love/hate this. It definitely looks modern and cool, and more like an art piece than an appliance, but it shows all my finger prints, and now I keep a glasses cleaning... Read More
Eufy is a 10 and iRobot (Roomba) is a 4
We have had a Roomba (600 Series)for a few years and bought this Eufy last year ; there is no comparison, but I'll try to rate them on features that might be important to all: 1) Noise: Eufy is quiet and you can run it on an even lower, less powerful (and quieter) speed. Roomba is so loud that you can't have a conversation in the same room and you're aware of it in other rooms. 2) Delicacy: Eufy can be programmed to continue into the edges/borders but even when it does, it does so delicately. Roomba throws itself boldly into every structure so all of my white moldings are now marred. It also once turned the key on my gas fireplace and my house was full of gas when I arrived home. It's my fault for leaving the key in, but Eufy would not power into it hard enough to turn it. Good thing I'm not smoker! 3a) Cleaning the machine: Eufy: comes with a tool to help clean off the dust, rip out the hair from the brush, and clean the brush ends. Roomba: Prior to owing the Eufy, I didn't think to expect a cleaning tool. I figured out that I needed a special kind of gadget to remove the hair (long hair from human heads, not from pets) from the brush and purchased a long-handled seam ripper which was perfect. Why didn't they include a cleaning tool? 3b) Cleaning your floors/rugs: Eufy has two rotating brushes made of a substance that does not wear out. They also send along extra brushes in case you need them! It picks up twice as much gunk as the Roomba. Roomba (my model) has one brush whic... Read More
Fairly dumb, but that's quite alright!
I've owned many Anker and Anker-related items and have only once disliked one of their products. The eufy Robovac 11S is not that product. This is without a doubt one of the best values in vacs on the market. Had I purchased an earlier version I might have thought differently, but the extra power and slightly slimmer design on the 11S is what makes this one hard to resist. This is my first robot vac, but many of my friends have various brands. Some rave (iRobot owners, mainly) and some whine (Neato and Samsung owners). None has had a eufy, so it's been interesting to be the first of my friends to own one. My wife didn't feel this was anything we really needed to purchase; we either have to get out the big Bissell vacuum (on loose pile carpet), the Shark (mainly for steps) or a broom (for hardwood/tile/linoleum areas). Cut and dried. A robot vac wouldn't be of much use with it's far less powerful motor. Gimmick. Then she watched as the Robovac went to work over the course of a week. I have 1450 sq. ft. upstairs, 70% hardwood/tile/linoleum, 30% loose pile carpet. Downstairs I've got 100% loose pile carpet in 1100 sq. ft. of finished space. I run the vacuum upstairs for 2-3 days, then I move the charging station downstairs and run for 3-4 days, then repeat the cycle. On the hardwood areas, a greatroom of kitchen/dining/living room, hallway, and a bathroom, then two bedrooms and a den with carpet, the vac runs around/under the couch, two reclining chairs, coffee table, end tabl...

Better Than I-Robot For Our Needs
Our cleaning lady retired about the same time that the Amazon Deal of The Day was an IRobot 650. Robot vacuums were a new concept for us but we had heard good things about robot vacuums from friends so I bought one to see if it would work for us. God bless those Amazon Deals of The Day. We have a large two story home with a combination of medium and low pile carpets, several oriental rugs with fringe and hardwood floors in the kitchen and entry area. Given that this was our first robot vacuum experience we were initially amazed watching the I-Robot 650 do its thing and it seemed to do a good job of cleaning. However, we didn't like the way it forcefully bumped into furniture and it didn't do well with drapes that touched the floor. When moved upstairs, it had a problem identifying the curved edge of our carpeted stairs. Fortunately, it didn't fall down the stairs but it had a tendency to stall after trying to turn away from the stairs. Overall we were satisfied with the I-Robot 650 because it seemed to clean well but was less than perfect with the bumping issue. Based on this and after reading many many of reviews, I bought the RoboVac 11S because we needed a second vacuum for the second level of our home. Also, the price was less than the I-Robot models. When the RoboVac 11S arrived I was impressed that it was a bit smaller and thinner. This allowed it to get under some recliners and furniture that the I-Robot 650 couldn't access. Having a separate remote control was also ... Read More
I REALLY LIKE IT
I got an iRobot Roomba 690 vacuum for Christmas and love it. I have not manually vacuumed since Christmas! As I live in a two story house, I decided to purchase another robotic vacuum, and seeing the Eufy was rated as the “best of 2018” I decided to get it. Both vacuum’s appear to do the job, and I would like to compare them: The Eufy has two brushes on either side, whereas my Roomba has only one. I find that the Eufy appears to clean the general floor area, and then go back for edges, and the two side brushes help with this. Both are a little “stupid.” I try not to watch them do their job as I consistently want to interfere and nudge them where I see actual dirt/particles on the floor. Both will go seemingly all around dirt, retreading spots they’ve already been (and wasting battery life in the process) rather than moving along any real sensible path. However, I have also noticed that the Eufy seems to go along straighter paths/lines than the Roomba. However, both are supposed to return to their bases when the job is complete. The Eufy has found its way back to its base one time as far as I can determine. The Roomba finds its way back about 1/2 of the time. The Eufy will continue to run if picked up, the Roomba shuts itself down immediately. The Eufy is slimmer than the Roomba. I find that the Eufy tends to get stuck less frequently than the Roomba. For example, it can go under my coffee table that sits close to the floor, whereas the Roomba would get it’s front stuck unde... Read More
Pros: - it's super quiet--especially compared to the iRobot. It sounds like a fan not at all like a vaccum. my dog doesn't mind it at all. - i run it pretty much everyday bc i have a dog and it makes my apt feel a lot cleaner but it def needs to spend a decent amount of time in each room to really get all the hair - I love having a remote, much easier to deal with than an app. - it's very cute and chic looking in my apt compared to the big bulky black iRobots - its very skinny and fits under couches no problem Cons: - the navigation is awful lol. 99% of the time I use the remote to manually drive it around. in its defense though I'm lazy about picking up wires off the ground (which it WILL get stuck on) and i don't like it to go over my high-pile shag rug. it can never find its way home on its own - practically no suction on my rugs
See Update of previous review.
Another update more than a year later. After some really excellent customer service and a replacement I can now say that I am very happy with Eufy. It has very good suction and keeps my hardwood floors free of dog hair. It picks up a lot every night when it runs and I genuinely live having it. When it dies I will buy another. I would like one that empties itself but they are still too ridiculously expensive. Anyway, I just had to update my review. I’m bumping it up to 4 stars. I would give it 5 if I had no issues in the beginning. I changed my review from 1 star to 3 stars because of the outstanding customer support. Ultimately my issues was solved. It remains at 3 because I’m still comparing it to the iLife I bought fir 1/2 the price. See Update below - - - This robot vac was a terrible disappointment. I purchased it in November and gave it as a gift on Christmas to replace my wife’s dead iLife A4s which she loved. The iLife only lasted about 18 months but it was well under $200 when I purchased it from Amazon in 2018. Consumer Reports gave the eufy 11s a high rating. It was like in 2nd place under a much more expensive iRobot. The eufy immediately kept getting stuck on things that the iLife handled without issue. By 120 days it was just dying in the middle of the room without every going home to charge. We exercised the 1 year waranty and was told that we would have to take a refurbished item since it was passed 90 days. Fine, send me a refurb. I’ve had that one for a we... Read More
Quiet! works well so far.
**Update 1/24/20 ** days after my initial review we began suffering issues. We discovered the vac wasn't running according to the schedule. I pushed the top button on the vacuum, it beeped once, the blue light flashed to orange, it flashed for a few seconds then revered back to blue. Tried again and it repeats. Removed it from the base and pushed the button and nothing. Turned it off and on again and the vac runs via manual start. I've submitted a support request with Eufy and will further update once I hear back from them. Replacing a iRobot Roomba which we have had for many years (5+). I've really liked the product, but the cost of a new replacement just kept me in a perpetual debate cycle. I got a notification of the 11S going on sale for a really reasonable price, so I just decided to make the purchase. First impressions after a week of use, its crazy quiet, especially in comparison to my old Roomba. I can actually let it run while watching TV or listening to music, which was in no way possible with the Roomba. That alone is a HUGE plus. The remote is fine, I would have preferred a smart vac with app support, but again, the cost was an issue and I couldn't justify the added cost for the minimal applicable features as I saw it. Cleaning it does a really good job. I primarily have Hardwood, but some carpet and rugs and it does a bang-up job, transitioning from one surface to another without any problems. Cleans each very well. After two cycles, I had to empty the tray as i... Read More
Didn't pick up dog hair very well, but now it does
Update: Not sure why, when I first got this eufy, it didn't pick up dog hair very well. But it does an adequate job now. It also runs a long time so overall I'm happy with it. I wish I would have returned this item. It doesn't pick up dog hair. After it vacuums, I find little clumps of dog hair. I have an iRobot Roomba brand, and it does pick up dog hair.
