The greatest time saving appliance I have been gifted
We use this both on Wooden & carpeted floors. It's brilliant on both. We have a dog, so it's brilliant to run every day. Love the fact it goes under the bed! So affordable

Review Eocvacs Deebot U2 Series
Does the job
Does not have a mapping feature
Well priced for what it does
I have never had a robot vacuum cleaner, so I didn't know what to expect and especially how it worked and what it could do and not do.
Purchased in for $299.

I received the Ecovacs DEEBOT U2 as part of the ambassador program.
I was quite impressed with the way everything was fit into a compact package with no wasted space. The whole box was slightly larger than two pizza boxes stacked together, with every corner filled with parts or accessories. You get the robot, charging station, side brushes, a reusable cleaning cloth and its plate, and an instruction manual. You need to attach the two side brushes and let it recharge for a few hours and it’s ready to use. Pay attention to side brushe...

I have to admit - I'm a bit disappointed.
Even though I have always wanted a robot vacuum cleaner I have never had one so I don't have anything to compare this to. I've got a 25 square house with 4 bedrooms and 2 living areas. The front of the house has quite a long hallway with 2 bedrooms. laundry and a living area leading off it. The back of the house on one side is the kitchen, meals and family room and on the other side are 2 bedrooms, bathroom and toilet. There's 3 floor surfaces, vinyl planks, carpet and tiles in the wet areas. Setting up the U2 was quite easy however I found the...instructions on using the robot to be fairly useless. Virtually non existent. It's been a case of trial and error. After charging the U2 I set it into motion from the app. I had placed the charger in the bedroom at the rear of the house so that was it's starting point. It did half of that room without attempting to do the edges. It proceeded out of the doorway and passed the toilet and bathroom and went into the other bedroom. From there it went half way up the hallway at the front of the house but turned around without going to the end. It went into one bedroom at that end of the house and the living room but missed the front bedroom and the laundry. In the hallway it only did the centre without doing the edges. Having a long haired dog in the house it's the edges that need doing the most. It then proceeded to go back to one of the bedrooms it had previously done and went around it and under the bed numerous times completely missing the kitchen, meals and family room. This took about 90 minutes when it announced it was going back to charge. It found it's way back to the charger. The next clean which was a vacuum again, I wondered if the charger should be more central in the house so it could find all the room so I moved it and started the clean from there. This time it did clean the front bedroom, multiple times under the bed, and found it's way to the kitchen and family area where it got caught on the long pile rug. I expected that may be an issue. Again, after running approx. 90 minutes it announced it was returning to the charger. This time it returned to the original location of where the charger had been. After both uses the collection bin was almost full but it is quite small. Using the mopping feature when I worked it out, it didn't seem to mop very well. I was surprised there isn't a switch or something to change from vacuum to mop. To mop I had to close off all the carpeted rooms. I haven't bothered mopping since. I found it quite a bit of effort to have to move everything out of the way before starting to vacuum. For me I find it easier to move things as I go when using the stick vacuum or my larger vacuum cleaner. I would compare the clean to the clean I would get using a stick vacuum. To use the U2 as your main vacuum cleaner I think you'd be buying filters and the cloth pads frequently. The brushes did cope well with the long dog hair which is similar to long human hair, it did wrap around and they kept rotating. Ideally I'd like to be able to activate a robot cleaner to clean when I'm out of the house but with the U2 I wouldn't know which rooms had been done and which hadn't or I'd come home to find it stuck on the rug. One charge with a 90 minute run time wouldn't do the entire house even if it did find it's way around.
