All the following robots are equipped with sensors that prevent from falling down from stairs and help to not bumping into furniture. Also, Eufy, Shark Ion, and Ecovacs Deebot have an auto-recharge feature that makes them automatically get to the docking station to recharge when the battery runs out.
Shark Ion 750
The Shark’s brush roll has a slightly different design that requires less maintenance and doesn’t get hair tangled on it as easy as the Deebot. Shark Ion 750 is lower than Ecovacs which causes less stuck. In the box, you will find magnetic tapes for blocking the robot from places it should not go. The robot is great at picking pet hair up. The machine easily goes over medium carpet and crosses a threshold. Same as Ecovacs Deebot N79S, Shark Ion 750 is integrated with Amazon Alexa/Google Assistant. Based on consumer reviews, Shark Ion performs better at medium carpets than Ecovacs Deebot N79S.
Issues with Shark Ion 750
Took a few attempts to connect to the app. It also often loses connectivity to Wi-Fi. It has a basic app but we hope the manufacturer will fix it soon. Anti-tangle brush still gets hair wrapped sometimes but based on consumer reviews it happens less often than with other robots.
Overall, Shark Ion is a powerful robot that is able to make your floors clean, compatible with Alexa and cost about $300 which is a good deal considering its features.
Eufy RoboVac 11+
Eufy RoboVac 11+ is also one of the best-selling and highly-rated products on Amazon. Along with two side brushes that sweep dust and dirt from corners, it has a bristle cleaning brush that scratches thin carpets and transfers all the dust and pets hair to its dust box. A motor delivers 1000Pa of suction power which is enough to leave thin carpets and hardwood floors clean. New feature BoostIQ Technology automatically increases suction power when extra vacuuming strength is needed. Since Eufy doesn't support Wi-Fi, it can be managed by its IR remote control. Anti-scratch tempered glass protects your furniture from damage.
What is the downside of Eufy RoboVac 11+?
This robot mostly designed for hard floors and a few area rugs. Doesn't suitable for thick carpets. When it runs on carpeting surface, its battery lasts slightly over an hour.
For the price of around $230, Eufy RoboVac 11+ is an amazing decent robot that will suit your needs.
Ecovacs Deebot N79S
Ecovacs Deebot N79S is one of the best-selling robot vacuum cleaners on Amazon and owners love it. It has the strong suction that is able to pick up pet hair, dust, and dirt from thin carpets and bare floors. Its dustbin gets full after every cleaning session making it perfect for pet owners. As we said before, Ecovacs Deebot N79S is integrated with Amazon Alexa and can be controlled by voice as well as you can manage it via the app and IT remote control. The two side brushes catch and transfer the dust and dirt to its dustbin, along with that robot has a helix main brush and high-efficiency vacuum suction that actually work together to make your floors clean. Unlike its older brother Ecovacs Deebot N79, N79S got Max Mode Suction that provides better cleaning.
What is not that good about Ecovacs Deebot N79S?
Hair tangles up around the main brush which happens with all robots that are equipped with the bristle one. ECOVACS App requires 2.4G Hz Wi-Fi. Please make sure you set an additional channel on your router at this speed.
For sure you probably will not find another robot vacuum cleaner that costs $250 and would be compatible with Alexa. Considering its performance on thin carpets and the way it handles pet hair, Ecovacs Deebot N79S is one of the best on the market in its price range so far.
It is easy to find replacement parts for Eufy RoboVac 11+ and Ecovacs Deepbot N79S on Amazon. If you need a new filter or a side brush, or a cleaning brush whatever you can always find it on sale.
Shark Ion is a different thing. So far you can only get extra accessories directly from the Shark website which could probably be not that good for most of the consumers.
Fairly to say that you can use all the extras that are coming in the box for about six months at least.
Cleaning performance is 99% the same especially when it comes to a hardwood floor, tile, vinyl etc. Neither of them can clean thick carpets but thin rugs are no problem for each. All of them have the strong suction that is able to pick up pet hair and the smallest particles from a floor. Be ready to empty the dustbin after every cleaning session since it gets full every time (especially the Shark Ion 750, it has the smallest one). All of the machines get stuck and needed to be rescued from time to time.
Shark Ion seems to be the lowest (note that manufacturer specifies its height without the wheels) so it will probably fit under most of your furniture. But the height difference between the three is not that much though.
Since neither of the robots has mapping and smart navigation, they move randomly over the cleaning area. Do not expect the robot to remember where it's been, only "mapping" machines can do that.
Shark Ion and Ecovacs have Wi-Fi enabled and come with an app. Consumers claim that they are having troubles with connecting the Shark to wi-fi which hasn't happened with Ecovacs though. This issue causes troubles with Alexa and the compatibility becomes worthless without Wi-Fi.
From all of the three robots, only Shark Ion comes with magnetic tapes that supposed to block off areas.
Eufy works the quietest. It will not disturb you nor your family while operating. Also, Eufy is the only device here that doesn't have an app and does not support Wi-Fi. You still can manage it through the remote control or manually by pressing the "Start" button on the lid.
All the robots are equipped with sensors that prevent falling down from stairs and to avoid obstacles on the way and have auto-recharge feature.
It is hard for us to make a conclusion which one is better. All the three robots are amazing, decent battery life, good cleaning performance etc. It depends on your own preferences and what you need a robot cleaner for. Which one would you get for yourself? Leave a comment down below.
