Roomba Vs Eufy: Which Is Best And Why?

Roomba Vs Eufy: The Eufy 11S is the obvious winner because of its superior suction, longer runtime, and lower noise level. While Roomba is a household name, the Roomba 675 cannot compete in the entry-level market.

Control system

This chart compares the two devices based on their battery life and ability to explore your house. Eufy easily wins this category.

The battery on the Eufy 11S lasts for many hours, and it only took 1 hour and 40 minutes to clean my 1,000-square-foot floor before returning to its base. Max mode is supposed to increase the suction; however, I didn’t see a significant improvement, and the battery life was reduced to one hour. Eufy slows down near walls to prevent scuffing the baseboard, although it does not always get as close as it might. Its thin shape allows it to fit under most tables, beds, and sofas.

Eufy has little difficulty locating its base. The vacuum will rock back and forth to escape if it becomes trapped. This may be advantageous, but it might waste battery power if the vacuum cannot finally escape. Before using the vacuum, you must prepare the area for cleaning by picking up loose debris and wires. You may use common items to create barriers or upgrade to the Eufy RoboVac 30C, which contains magnetic boundary strips.

Cleaning Modes

It is not as effective on stairs as Roomba. The remote for the Eufy 11S has four cleaning modes: edge clean, spot clean, run, and a single room.

The battery life of the Roomba is just 60 minutes. That wouldn’t be so bad if it could recharge between sessions, but it doesn’t always get it back to the base before expiring. There are no flexible options since it can only clean specific areas or the whole room using its algorithm. Roomba claims that it uses the very sophisticated iAdapt Responsive. 

The navigational algorithm, although its routes are just as illogical as those of Eufy.

Roomba displays a green light when it finds dirt and actively cleans the area until it is spotless. Due to Roomba’s limited runtime, it would gather more debris if it kept cleaning the whole floor instead of focusing on a single area. It collides violently with walls and may leave scuff marks. Virtual Walls are available to restrict the Roomba from particular rooms or locations; however, the 690 is the only model in the 600 Range with them. Virtual Walls may be purchased separately for $40 each.


Again, Eufy is a much better model.

Eufy claims that their suction is 1,300pa, and it is evident. It works better on carpets and hard surfaces than Roomba. BoostIQ is intended to increase the vacuum’s suction power on carpets. I did not anticipate this doing well on medium or low-pile carpets, yet it still exceeded Roomba. I dropped rice and other trash, which Eufy picked up without difficulty. Likewise for hard flooring. The Eufy 11S was the finest robot vacuum for cleaning up dirt on wood and hard floors for less than $300.

In contrast, Roomba is the worst-performing cheap robot vacuum. I cannot determine if the vacuum’s poor performance results from low suction power, a single brush, an ineffective dirt detecting mechanism, or another reason. It often focuses on one region and neglects the rest of the home.

According to my experiments, Eufy takes up 50 percent more carpet debris than Roomba. On a hard flooring, Eufy scoops up double the amount of trash.


Eufy has a superior design since Roomba is large, cumbersome, and noisy. The Eufy 11S is 2.85 inches thin and is available in white or black. It is glossy but also reveals fingerprints. The dust tray is easily accessible and spacious: the remote features precise controls and edge and spot cleaning choices. In addition, you may schedule cleanings. The Eufy 11s is the most silent device I’ve tried. It will not annoy you whether you are watching television or living your life. However, the wheels sometimes squeal on wooden surfaces.

Compared to Eufy, Roomba is bulky, hefty, and an inch taller. This implies it will often get entangled in tight spaces. There is no remote; however, there is an app. This will assist with scheduling; however, you shouldn’t need to use the program much. Not only is the trash can difficult to empty, but it is also rather tiny. Additionally, the filters are difficult to clean, making upkeep tough.

The Roomba’s operation is audible. I recommend running it before you go to work rather than while attempting to relax. If that is difficult, this suction will certainly be audible as it cleans.

The Roomba app is superior to the Eufy app, which does not exist.

Controlling Eufy is limited to remote control. This is not a significant issue since most applications assist with scheduling. Eufy permits are scheduled through the remote (so long as it is in the same room). You cannot utilize intelligent assistants such as Alexa or Google Assistant, but the remote should suffice.

Infrequently, the schedule will not function or will activate the vacuum at the incorrect time. Eufy suggests removing the batteries to reset the clock. Also, ensure that the remote and vacuum are nearby since the remote utilizes IR beams rather than WiFi. In this way, the Roomba 675 and 690 are superior since they use WiFi scheduling. Once Roomba beeps, you will know the schedule has been established.

The Roomba 675 and 690 use WiFi, and the software allows daily schedule customization. Initially, synchronizing the app and vacuum might be difficult, but you will only have to do it once. It tracks past cleanings, displays filter and brush warnings reviews the robot’s health and battery life and makes scheduling simple. Additionally, it informs when the cleaning is complete.

You will get firmware upgrades through the app, meaning that new features and improved algorithms may become accessible (not a guarantee, but a possibility). The 675 and 690 are compatible with Google Home and Alexa. The voice instructions are quite lengthy but functional.


Even if I dislike the Roomba 600 Series, the Roomba brand has a higher reputation than Eufy.

Anker owns the Eufy brand and is well-known for producing power banks and phone accessories. They provide quality goods and dependable customer service with prompt, helpful replies. However, Eufy outsourced design and manufacture to Ecovacs in the past. Ecovacs Deebot N79 and Eufy 11 (non-S) were formerly similar items for purchase. When Ecovacs ceased manufacturing for Eufy, Eufy created its inferior product (Eufy 11+). Not until the Eufy 11s did they begin producing quality vacuums again.

iRobot, on the other hand, owns Roomba and manufactured the first robot vacuum in 2002. They have existed for more than 18 years, and Roomba is designed to be maintained, not discarded and forgotten. Replacement components are readily available. They even feature different error codes to make troubleshooting simple.

Each Roomba 600 Series vacuum cleaner has the same body but somewhat varied specifications:

  • Roomba 614 is the entry-level model and lacks WiFi connectivity.
  • Additionally, Roomba 650 and 652 lack WiFi and have cleaned discontinued.
  • Roomba 675 is equipped with WiFi and a mobile app or intelligent assistant for scheduling cleanings.
  • The Roomba 690 is identical to the 675, except that it has a virtual wall.


I like Roomba’s software and the way the business operates. Roomba is a fantastic brand with a variety of excellent models. However, their reasonably priced Roomba 600 Series is mediocre in terms of performance and navigation. The winner is Eufy 11S by a significant margin. With greater navigation, battery life, and suction, the Eufy robot vacuum is outstanding.
