abunda_amazon_reviews I had very high hopes for this robovac, but sadly, it isn’t ready for prime time. I had continual issues with it violating its virtual boundaries and getting tangled in the fringe of area rugs. It also skipped significant areas of my home - I’m not talking spots missed, I mean entire rooms were ignored. On its last run, it skipped a hallway, a bedroom and a bathroom, said that cleaning was completed and returned to the dock to charge. After speaking to a T8 specialist at Ecovacs, I was told that the virtual boundary problem was a known issue and that the robot will skip areas depending on what it sees in the environment. These are deal breakers for a very expensive product and I returned it today. I cannot recommend the T8 to anyone.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 14, 2020;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;Not Ready For Prime Time;;Richard Scotty;;;Several weeks in: I'm getting happier with the performance of this vacuum. I still think flashlights for the camera would have been a good addition. I have problems with the app still not consistently letting me divide areas. Also, I've had to remap the house several times. The latest time I walled off the living room where the vacuum has the most problems navigating. I finally got a decent map of the rest of the house and can send the vacuum out to individual rooms. The latest revisions of the firmware seem to have helped. The vacuum does a good job cleaning around the legs of chairs and tables and makes quick work out of a room. It really will vacuum for hours continuously if your space is large enough. It's not quite perfect yet but it's getting better. Virtual boundary work well. Also, I seriously hope they didn't abandon the self empty charging dock and upgraded mop. I bought this vacuum because it was advertised as having self empty accessories. I have a lot of problems with the vacuum going under the couch and getting lost. There's a cloth skirt around the couch and if the vacuum goes under it can no longer see and it bounces around under there on the support legs and sometimes it comes out and sometimes it gives up and goes to sleep. Now that I have a functional map generated of the rest of the house, I plan on mapping the living room and then use virtual boundary to wall off the couch. The app still has some problems with not letting me divide a room along the horizontal axis. The vacuum hasn't pushed a throw rug around in a while. I'm overall pretty happy right now with the purchase but really need that self empty bin feature soon. Edited out angry post. Day, uh, 6? Still goes under the couch and thinks it's found Narnia. Does not avoid Nerf darts. No light to illuminate things so the camera can see under the magic couch. Floors are very clean, though. I can definitely say the best way to map a house is to send it out to clean, immediately pick it up and carry it to the opposite corner of the house and hit the recharge button in the app. Then every time it tells you it can't find the charger, just press the button in the app again. Day 3: Still having a problem generating a map. Once the vacuum goes under the couch and comes out it gets confused. We have a doorway between the kitchen and living room and a doorway from the kitchen and living room into the hallway. Hard to explain in text, but the vacuum goes into the hallway, sees the other door to the kitchen and thinks it's found a whole new room. The vacuum then remaps the house at a 30 degree angle to the first map. This time it missed the bedrooms. Map making is terrible while it's vacuuming. So, what I did tonight is reset the crooked map it made, drove it in the app to the other side of the house from the charging dock and told it to charge. It took a couple times telling it to find the charging dock, but it made a decent map of the house since it wasn't trying to clean at the same time. Edited out irrelevant content Whatever you do *DO NOT* press the glowing power button on the top of the vacuum to resume cleaning if you're building a map. This might get sorted out soon, but for me, right now, that resets the map the vacuum is working on. If the vacuum needs to be picked up, emptied, unstuck or whatever you should use the phone app and press the pause button. When the vacuum pauses, you can do what you need to do then - very important here - press the resume button on the app. I successfully picked up the vacuum, moved it a couple feet and resumed without losing the map. Also, sometimes the app will not let you resume cleaning, but if you go back and then press smartclean or whatever again you can resume. Just a couple bugs you can't work out in the lab is all... I bought this vacuum from Ecovac directly. I thought after the first round of cleaning I would post a quick review since there are no other reviews to go off of if one is thinking of purchasing this vacuum. This is my first robot vacuum, so I have nothing else to compare it to. What I noticed right away is it did not avoid my speaker wires under my computer desk. I tied them out of the way and it won't be a problem again. Second, it got lost under the couch and I had to fish it out. Also, it found all the small things I didn't know were in dark corners. I took several feet of dental floss, a spring, two Nerf darts, candy wrappers and beads out of the beater bar over the cleaning period. These are things that won't be there the next time the vacuum cleans. My biggest concern after reading what was available for reviews on this vac was it had a hard time learning a house. Tonight was only the first time out and it did not get into the bathroom or bedrooms. I had to pick it up about 8 times to take things it found out of the beater bar and untangle it from the cords under my computer, plus the time it spent under the couch just resting, basically. I can say, even with it being seriously disturbed with all the handling, it found the charging dock when the battery got low. I like to imagine the vacuum is training us as much as it's training itself our house layout. I don't blame it for snagging on stuff that's been lost under the couch for a year. I plan on uploading video or pictures and an update in a couple days, but I wanted to get on and say that it cleaned for several hours, got picked up and moved around a bunch, got antagonized by curious kids and an angry dog, and still found the charging base after a nap under the couch.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 5, 2020;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Summary of my first week;;Steve;;;UPDATE 7/27/2020: Moved score from 4 to 2. I sent my robots back. The month that I had them was frustrating. The last straw was I set an area to clean. It got stuck on a cable (which is fine), I cleared it and resumed cleaned. I left the house to run errands and came back home, and I was like, that is weird, why is the robot still cleaning? Well, the robot got confused and started cleaning an area I didn't want to clean. It got really tangled in some cable and was dragging it around in it's wheels. It should have never went that area. Spent 10 mins removing the jam. The robot was low on power and wanted to return to the base to charge. The robot was literally 3 feet in front of the charge base and it just sat there spinning, being confused. And the lighting in the area was bright, no shadows, etc. I couldn't trust it to schedule a cleaning because I would have to pick up everything around the house in case it gets confused and if I wanted to baby sit the robot, I might as well just vacuum myself. Ecovacs can probably fix a lot of these issues in software updates, but I'm not sitting on a $800 purchase waiting/hoping they do. I'll try my luck with the Roborock S6 MaxV. We are not at Jetsons level of vacuum just yet but this is a great robot. Not perfect by any means, but way better than the competition. It's pretty smart in it's cleaning (compared it Roomba, seriously). It will automatically detect floor type and switch from vacuum to mop. Just keep in mind, mop only uses water and not chemicals. I like that I can schedule certain rooms/areas. Before you read the negatives, I just want to say I still recommend the robot. So much that I bought a 2nd one for my 2nd floor. The only other robot that comes close is the Roborock S6 MaxV. I choose the Deebot over the Roborock because Deboot had 2 side brushes (compared to 1) and you can see video stream where you can't on the Roborock. However, Roborock does have bigger dust and water bins. But the Deebot is 'suppose' to be coming out with a bin empty option (like roomba has). It's an option in their software now, but unsure 'when' it is coming. I gave it a 4 star because of the negatives, and I think most of these negatives can easily be solved by software updates, which is good. If Ecovacs would solve these negatives, and with the self empty bin option due out, I would easily give it a 5. Software negatives Out of the box, you have to run an auto clean in order to get to the settings of the robot. So you can't turn on some of the features until you do this, which is un-intuative. In order to setup areas, and rooms and such you have to turn on Advanced mode and Continous mode but you can't do this at first (see tips below) The video camera can't be used when it's in cleaning mode. Even if you pause the cleaning or if it's stuck, you can't see the video, which is dumb. Video camera can only be used in manual (non cleaning) or patrol mode. Another un-intuative thing is in order to be able to setup rooms and all that, you have to let it do a FULL auto-cleaning. Pause it while it is auto-cleaning, start over. Robot gets stuck when auto-cleaning, start over. And then since you can't get to the options until after your first auto-clean, you can't turn on continous mode. (see tips below) You can't name your rooms. You can only pick from pre-determined list. No big deal, but kinda lame. You can rename your robot in the software, however, your robot notifications will have the default name. This is annoying if you have more than 1 robot, because you don't which robot the notification is for. Robot was out cleaning, and got stuck. I got the notification it was stuck. I went in to the robot to see where it was but there was a firmware update, no big deal. But the battery was below 50% so it wouldn't do the firmware update. And since it was out cleaning, I couldn't look at the video camera to see where the robot was. So in this scenario, there was no way to see where the robot was and had to go find it in the house, because you are forced to do a firmware update. I had to carry the robot back to the charge station to charge so that it would do the firmware update And on top of that, I had to start the auto-clean all over again for it to try and save a map. Do not force the user to update firmware, especially if it's out on a clean. Robot negatives The object recognition is OK. Forget about cables, cat toys, legos, action figures, etc. It will just push over them. If you have bigger pet/kid toys, wouldn't be an issue but you'll need to pick up those smaller items. And the pet food and water bowls, robot just pushes right in to them. Moved the food bowls over about 6 inches. Robot did get stuck on some cables. I just pick up the stuff before a clean starts I had the charging base under a window, and the robot went to come back to the charge base, the charge base was in the shade and the sun was hitting the floor in front of it so the robot got confused and couldn't 'see' the charge base so it just sat in front of it. And I see no way of resetting where the charge base is on the map, if you move it. So it looks like I have to try and build the map AGAIN. Video Camera (see above under software negatives) - sorta a gimmick, at this point. Let me look at the video camera feed at anytime, even when it's cleaning Tip Out of the box, you'll need to let it charge. Set it up but don't run an auto-clean just. wait till it charges Start your first auto clean, let me move around for like a minute then cancel it (this will let you get to settings, and save some headache) Now send it back to the charge base and go in to the settings of the robot (because it's finally unlocked). Turn on Advanced Mode and Continous Cleaning under basic settings Under Additional Settings/About DEEBOT/Firmware Version, turn on Auto Update. You probably want to go ahead check for updates now, just to save yourself some headache Now before you start your cleaning, go back to Basic Settings and Reset Current Map Lastly, if you will be using the deebot on more than floor, click the edit floor button (bottom left corner) and turn on Multi-Floor Map Lastly, if it's no daylight or brightly lit in each room, turn on the lights. This will help the robot map the floor way better. Now you are ready to do your first Auto-Clean and it will save the map, and then you can create areas/rooms Just remember though, DO NOT stop the auto-clean. Let it do it's thing. Depending on the size of your floor, it might need to go back to the charge base to charge before finishing. It is not finished until you get a notification saying cleaning complete, even if it looks like it mapped out the entire floor. Wait until you get that 'cleaning complete' notification or else it won't save the map and you won't be able to setup rooms/areas. You can empty the dirt bin while it's on the charge station, just don't remove the robot from the charge station. Ecovacs needs to make a setup wizard when adding a robot, which would make things a lot easier. Or at least just dump the user to the robot and let them get to settings without requiring a clean first. Also, it would be great if there was a 'map mode', that it would just go around the house mapping the environment. This way you can get the map setup before you start your first clean.;;Reviewed in the United States on July 8, 2020;;2.0 out of 5 stars;;Software issues will leave you frustrated;;Scott Beauchemin

It got stuck on a cable (which is fine), I cleared it and resumed cleaned. I left the house to run errands and came back home, and I was like, that is weird, why is the robot still cleaning? Well, the robot got confused and started cleaning an area I didn't want to clean. It got really tangled in some cable and was dragging it around in it's wheels. It should have never went that area. Spent 10 mins removing the jam. The robot was low on power and wanted to return to the base to charge. The robot was literally 3 feet in front of the charge base and it just sat there spinning, being confused. And the lighting in the area was bright, no shadows, etc. I couldn't trust it to schedule a cleaning because I would have to pick up everything around the house in case it gets confused and if I wanted to baby sit the robot, I might as well just vacuum myself. Ecovacs can probably fix a lot of these issues in software updates, but I'm not sitting on a $800 purchase waiting/hoping they do. I'll try my luck with the Roborock S6 MaxV. We are not at Jetsons level of vacuum just yet but this is a great robot. Not perfect by any means, but way better than the competition. It's pretty smart in it's cleaning (compared it Roomba, seriously). It will automatically detect floor type and switch from vacuum to mop. Just keep in mind, mop only uses water and not chemicals. I like that I can schedule certain rooms/areas. Before you read the negatives, I just want to say I still recommend the robot. So much that I bought a 2nd one for my 2nd floor. The only other robot that comes close is the Roborock S6 MaxV. I choose the Deebot over the Roborock because Deboot had 2 side brushes (compared to 1) and you can see video stream where you can't on the Roborock. However, Roborock does have bigger dust and water bins. But the Deebot is 'suppose' to be coming out with a bin empty option (like roomba has). It's an option in their software now, but unsure 'when' it is coming. I gave it a 4 star because of the negatives, and I think most of these negatives can easily be solved by software updates, which is good. If Ecovacs would solve these negatives, and with the self empty bin option due out, I would easily give it a 5. Software negatives Out of the box, you have to run an auto clean in order to get to the settings of the robot. So you can't turn on some of the features until you do this, which is un-intuative. In order to setup areas, and rooms and such you have to turn on Advanced mode and Continous mode but you can't do this at first (see tips below) The video camera can't be used when it's in cleaning mode. Even if you pause the cleaning or if it's stuck, you can't see the video, which is dumb. Video camera can only be used in manual (non cleaning) or patrol mode. Another un-intuative thing is in order to be able to setup rooms and all that, you have to let it do a FULL auto-cleaning. Pause it while it is auto-cleaning, start over. Robot gets stuck when auto-cleaning, start over. And then since you can't get to the options until after your first auto-clean, you can't turn on continous mode. (see tips below) You can't name your rooms. You can only pick from pre-determined list. No big deal, but kinda lame. You can rename your robot in the software, however, your robot notifications will have the default name. This is annoying if you have more than 1 robot, because you don't which robot the notification is for. Robot was out cleaning, and got stuck. I got the notification it was stuck. I went in to the robot to see where it was but there was a firmware update, no big deal. But the battery was below 50% so it wouldn't do the firmware update. And since it was out cleaning, I couldn't look at the video camera to see where the robot was. So in this scenario, there was no way to see where the robot was and had to go find it in the house, because you are forced to do a firmware update. I had to carry the robot back to the charge station to charge so that it would do the firmware update And on top of that, I had to start the auto-clean all over again for it to try and save a map. Do not force the user to update firmware, especially if it's out on a clean. Robot negatives The object recognition is OK. Forget about cables, cat toys, legos, action figures, etc. It will just push over them. If you have bigger pet/kid toys, wouldn't be an issue but you'll need to pick up those smaller items. And the pet food and water bowls, robot just pushes right in to them. Moved the food bowls over about 6 inches. Robot did get stuck on some cables. I just pick up the stuff before a clean starts I had the charging base under a window, and the robot went to come back to the charge base, the charge base was in the shade and the sun was hitting the floor in front of it so the robot got confused and couldn't 'see' the charge base so it just sat in front of it. And I see no way of resetting where the charge base is on the map, if you move it. So it looks like I have to try and build the map AGAIN. Video Camera (see above under software negatives) - sorta a gimmick, at this point. Let me look at the video camera feed at anytime, even when it's cleaning Tip Out of the box, you'll need to let it charge. Set it up but don't run an auto-clean just. wait till it charges Start your first auto clean, let me move around for like a minute then cancel it (this will let you get to settings, and save some headache) Now send it back to the charge base and go in to the settings of the robot (because it's finally unlocked). Turn on Advanced Mode and Continous Cleaning under basic settings Under Additional Settings/About DEEBOT/Firmware Version, turn on Auto Update. You probably want to go ahead check for updates now, just to save yourself some headache Now before you start your cleaning, go back to Basic Settings and Reset Current Map Lastly, if you will be using the deebot on more than floor, click the edit floor button (bottom left corner) and turn on Multi-Floor Map Lastly, if it's no daylight or brightly lit in each room, turn on the lights. This will help the robot map the floor way better. Now you are ready to do your first Auto-Clean and it will save the map, and then you can create areas/rooms Just remember though, DO NOT stop the auto-clean. Let it do it's thing. Depending on the size of your floor, it might need to go back to the charge base to charge before finishing. It is not finished until you get a notification saying cleaning complete, even if it looks like it mapped out the entire floor. Wait until you get that 'cleaning complete' notification or else it won't save the map and you won't be able to setup rooms/areas. You can empty the dirt bin while it's on the charge station, just don't remove the robot from the charge station. Ecovacs needs to make a setup wizard when adding a robot, which would make things a lot easier. Or at least just dump the user to the robot and let them get to settings without requiring a clean first. Also, it would be great if there was a 'map mode', that it would just go around the house mapping the environment. This way you can get the map setup before you start your first clean.

Not Ready For Prime Time
I had very high hopes for this robovac, but sadly, it isn’t ready for prime time. I had continual issues with it violating its virtual boundaries and getting tangled in the fringe of area rugs. It also skipped significant areas of my home - I’m not talking spots missed, I mean entire rooms were ignored. On its last run, it skipped a hallway, a bedroom and a bathroom, said that cleaning was completed and returned to the dock to charge. After speaking to a T8 specialist at Ecovacs, I was told that the virtual boundary problem was a known issue and that the robot will skip areas depending on what it sees in the environment. These are deal breakers for a very expensive product and I returned it today. I cannot recommend the T8 to anyone.

Summary of my first week
Several weeks in: I'm getting happier with the performance of this vacuum. I still think flashlights for the camera would have been a good addition. I have problems with the app still not consistently letting me divide areas. Also, I've had to remap the house several times. The latest time I walled off the living room where the vacuum has the most problems navigating. I finally got a decent map of the rest of the house and can send the vacuum out to individual rooms. The latest revisions of the firmware seem to have helped. The vacuum does a good job cleaning around the legs of chairs and tables and makes quick work out of a room. It really will vacuum for hours continuously if your space is large enough. It's not quite perfect yet but it's getting better. Virtual boundary work well. Also, I seriously hope they didn't abandon the self empty charging dock and upgraded mop. I bought this vacuum because it was advertised as having self empty accessories. I have a lot of problems with the vacuum going under the couch and getting lost. There's a cloth skirt around the couch and if the vacuum goes under it can no longer see and it bounces around under there on the support legs and sometimes it comes out and sometimes it gives up and goes to sleep. Now that I have a functional map generated of the rest of the house, I plan on mapping the living room and then use virtual boundary to wall off the couch. The app still has some problems with not letting me divide a room along the horizontal axis. The vacuum hasn't pushed a throw rug around in a while. I'm overall pretty happy right now with the purchase but really need that self empty bin feature soon. Edited out angry post. Day, uh, 6? Still goes under the couch and thinks it's found Narnia. Does not avoid Nerf darts. No light to illuminate things so the camera can see under the magic couch. Floors are very clean, though. I can definitely say the best way to map a house is to send it out to clean, immediately pick it up and carry it to the opposite corner of the house and hit the recharge button in the app. Then every time it tells you it can't find the charger, just press the button in the app again. Day 3: Still having a problem generating a map. Once the vacuum goes under the couch and comes out it gets confused. We have a doorway between the kitchen and living room and a doorway from the kitchen and living room into the hallway. Hard to explain in text, but the vacuum goes into the hallway, sees the other door to the kitchen and thinks it's found a whole new room. The vacuum then remaps the house at a 30 degree angle to the first map. This time it missed the bedrooms. Map making is terrible while it's vacuuming. So, what I did tonight is reset the crooked map it made, drove it in the app to the other side of the house from the charging dock and told it to charge. It took a couple times telling it to find the charging dock, but it made a decent map of the house since it wasn't trying to clean at the same time. Edited out irrelevant content Whatever you do *DO NOT* press the glowing power button on the top of the vacuum to resume cleaning if you're building a map. This might get sorted out soon, but for me, right now, that resets the map the vacuum is working on. If the vacuum needs to be picked up, emptied, unstuck or whatever you should use the phone app and press the pause button. When the vacuum pauses, you can do what you need to do then - very important here - press the resume button on the app. I successfully picked up the vacuum, moved it a couple feet and resumed without losing the map. Also, sometimes the app will not let you resume cleaning, but if you go back and then press smartclean or whatever again you can resume. Just a couple bugs you can't work out in the lab is all... I bought this vacuum from Ecovac directly. I thought after the first round of cleaning I would post a quick review since there are no other reviews to go off of if one is thinking of purchasing this vacuum. This is my first robot vacuum, so I have nothing else to compare it to. What I noticed right away is it did not avoid my speaker wires under my computer desk. I tied them out of the way and it won't be a problem again. Second, it got lost under the couch and I had to fish it out. Also, it found all the small things I didn't know were in dark corners. I took several feet of dental floss, a spring, two Nerf darts, candy wrappers and beads out of the beater bar over the cleaning period. These are things that won't be there the next time the vacuum cleans. My biggest concern after reading what was available for reviews on this vac was it had a hard time learning a house. Tonight was only the first time out and it did not get into the bathroom or bedrooms. I had to pick it up about 8 times to take things it found out of the beater bar and untangle it from the cords under my computer, plus the time it spent under the couch just resting, basically. I can say, even with it being seriously disturbed with all the handling, it found the charging dock when the battery got low. I like to imagine the vacuum is training us as much as it's training itself our house layout. I don't blame it for snagging on stuff that's been lost under the couch for a year. I plan on uploading video or pictures and an update in a couple days, but I wanted to get on and say that it cleaned for several hours, got picked up and moved around a bunch, got antagonized by curious kids and an angry dog, and still found the charging base after a nap under the couch.
