ECOVACS DEEBOT N79T Robotic Vacuum Cleaner Plus Bonus Brush Set $199 Delivered @ Ecovacs via Amazon AU

110

good entry level robovac. I've had one since the start of the year, while it won't ever get an award for being the smartest device in the house it is pretty good value for what it does.

The Alexa integration is a bit basic - start clean, go home etc. It doesn't do as well as grunting and groaning through the house with an old school vac, but it means you don't have to do the big clean as often.


Mod Note: Must add the Robotic Vacuum Cleaner + Brush Set, in the same cart.

    How does it do compared to the EUFY one in this deal?

    •  

      I got the Deebot 600 (I think it is slightly newer/better than the N79) on the $99 JB HiFi deal 2 months ago. I used it once and it wouldn't take a charge after that. During that first use (about 75 minutes) it got stuck twice and couldn't find it's way back to the charging dock. It also covered a LOT less ground (perhaps did it a little more thoruoughly though) than the Eufy 35c.

      JB offered me a Eufy Robovac 35c as a straight swap, which I accepted.

      The Robovac 35c doesn't get stuck very often, has smart sensing for power level when it moves from hard floors to carpets, and came with magnetic barrier tape so it is far easier to put a barrier down (the basic Deebots require a physical barrier). The Deebot app was slightly better but the Eufy app works OK.

      I would take the Eufy 35c any day. It is a dumb robot that bumps into things, but over the days it gets the job done. We have a large house (several bedrooms, loungeroom, diningroom, family room, kitchen, hallway and two bathrooms - mostly hard floors), and it covers all of it over a few days. The dust bin is never empty - it always finds dust, fluff, hair, sand, grass etc. It has dramatically reduced the need for sweeping the floors. It only picks up the loose stuff from carpets & rugs and will never replace a proper vacuum (same as all robots).

    apart from being cheaper? Not sure. A colleague of mine spent way too much of his life researching these things and he said at this price point unless you are buying it from Shonky Brothers Online they are all about the same.

    Use the promotion just under the buy option to get free accessories worth about $30.

    I have this robot for 1 yr, I love it

  •  

    I have one and it works well enough as a vacuum but it would simple bounces around randomly and aimlessly on the premise that enough random turns would cover the entire area given a long enough time. It has now been replaced by a (manual) stick vacuum in my house.

    I ordered this Robotic Vacuum Cleaner on eBay Tuesday deal but requested cancellation from seller as most poeple on OzBargain had ok reviews for this.

    •  

      How much was the eBay deal?

      •  

        I got it for $150 on eBay before. It’s good for the price but I replaced it with Deebot 920 which I got for $399 from Aldi and never looked back.

        $159 delivered

    Mine was alright for a while, but I got sick of having to rescue it from under the bed and everywhere else in the house that its now just in the cupboard.

    lidar + mapping

    • +1 vote

      Has mapping but sadly only thing missing is software fencing (e.g. off limit areas within the software). They never added the feature for this even though they easily could.
      So you have to use hardware boundaries such as magnetic tape…..

      •  

        True but it's a workhorse. The magnetic tape works fine if it suits your situation.

        Mine has done 38000 square meters of cleaning since 2017.

    Any recommendations on a vacuum + mop model?
    Not sold on the Xiaomi V2 Pro, based on a friend's feedback from his purchase.

    •  

      Depends on how much you want to spend. haha.

    Got this for $149 from eBay deal last year.

    Very dumb robot.

    Not worth the money, might as well save it towards getting a LIDAR robot in future.

    •  

      Same here

    •  

      Why does dumness mater if I set it going when I go to work 5 days per week.
      What benefits does LIDAR bring?

      •  

        Cannot do no-go zones
        Can damage furniture legs from the constant bumping.

        Also the dumbness matters because it won't clean uniformly, which you will potentially have patches which aren't done.

      •  

        Dumbness refers to the navigation.

        If you plan on using it whilst you're not at home, then LIDAR navigation matters even more.

        This robot just navigates randomly and often gets stuck in places or is unable to find its way back to dock. Cleaning coverage is also very hit or miss.

        There's also an issue with the automatic schelduling for this model. It doesn't always come out at preset times. I've contacted Evovacs but they could not fix the issue, and just offered me an exchange for a refurbished Deebot Ozmo 610.

    Cancelled order.

    I liked mine, idk why people are complaining. I do one room at a time, so it prevents the robot from going anywhere crazy. The living room and kitchen i do by hand, but its a great assistant. Doesn't replace the need to do everything but it sure helps

    • +3 votes

      Doing the robot 1 room at a time, seems like a good compromise, but i see robot vacuums as a set a forget. Then schedule in a manual bin empty 1-2times a week.
      If i need to supervise it, then i may as well go and vacuum it myself using a hand vac lol.

    •  

      This is the way. My robot works with me every time I do house cleaning. I do advanced tasks such as window sills, behind fridge etc. Robot does under beds, under couch and everywhere else.

      Mine is Xiaomi first gen.
