I got EcoVacs Deebot 710 for $320 at my near by store with $25 masterpass promotion. Have not opened, looking for reviews. Could not find a lot. Is this worthy?

I think it's worth the sale price, based on brand/feature/company reputation, but not the MSRP .... but I do agree, it's a pain to find any sort of reasonable review for this particular unit.

Bought a Deebot last year. 11 months in (presently), side brush broke.
Sent email to Ecovacs, got a response in about 1-2 days.
They asked for a video of failure and proof of purchase (indicating machine is still in warranty). They sent me a prepaid UPS shipping label to send the bot for repair (currently enroute).

I run it everyday. Since it's not a mapping model, it runs until it needs to recharge (approx 90min run).

We have a "dumb" model bought in 2017 for $199 off Amazon (M81 Pro). It's been trouble free after 2.5 years of use every 1-2 days. Expected to replace the battery at some point, but it still seems to have no issues running over our main floor for 90 minutes or so on a single charge.

I've got the n79s. Was 80usd a year ago. Work on wifi via an app and integrates and Google home. It's a dumb vacuum but I find it does a good job considering, and has reduced manually vacuuming significantly.

The app supports scheduling. Usually it's on a simple mon/wed/Fri schedule, but since we're working from home now, I've changed the setup a little so it doesn't run on this schedule anymore.

I've integrated it with smartthings and webcore and have it run every time we both leave the house.

A few notes from me:
  • The battery on my 920 was basically zero when I got it. Just had to mount it on the base to charge for a bit to do initial setup
  • Initial setup was pretty simple, aside from entering the wifi password.
  • There were at least 2 updates to be applied. Mine came in the shipping box, so it was never even put on display.
  • You can add virtual barriers and no-go zones live during the initial mapping. I did this to avoid some areas of the house just to see how it works (and to introduce it to my cat). Will take the walls down after a few runs.
  • Quiet mode is pretty quiet, good enough to run while working from home
  • The Lidar range of the 920 is surprisingly wide. Just more than expected. straight shot is probably 15 feet or so. The map filled in pretty quick.
  • The robot is powerful enough motor wise to move my kitchen chairs around the tile floor when bumping them.
Be aware, I've never used any Robot Vacuum, so this is my first experience.

Picking up my 920 today, will be interesting how the mopping feature works, wonder how much can it actually mop with such a small tank.

Let me know how it goes. I did my mapping run without the mop attached. Next time I'll set it up to mop with everything connected/setup

I ran it once with normal water on my hard floors and was ok. I changed to the 2nd cloth and ran it a second time on the hard floors with high water level and it was much better results. Wasn't too much water and left little enough water residue that I was comfortable with on my hard wood.

Overall I am very pleased with it. The vacuum mode is excellent. The mopping mode is good, but to be fair I never expected it to be amazing. Mapping was fast and easy. No go and no mop zones are amazing.

don't bother with the Deebot 710. I bought both the Deebot and the Eufy 30c and the Eufy is way better even though it doesnt have a camera.

I was on the fence to open and use the Deebot 710 that i received from Canadian Tire.

Can you elaborate on how Eufy was good, I can return Deebot and get Eufy

Got it last night, charged to full and started the run. At max suction only got a hour cleaning 50sq m... seems kinda of low for run time compared to my Shark IQ.

Do you have to set the mopping zones or will it differentiate hardwood vs carpet?

It is capable of differentiating between hardwood and carpet. When it detects carpet, it switches the mopping feature off, pretty cool if you ask me!
