A younger sibling to electronics brand Anker, Eufy has created a reasonably priced robot (as IROBOT ROOMBA 650 ) vac that is certainly one to consider. Its simple, elegant design means it doesn't look out of place in a modern home and it’s easy to set up and use. Attach the sweeper brushes underneath the machine and charge using the docking station. Then switch on and use the remote (batteries not included) to set up the cleaning mode you desire – pick from auto, scheduled, spot clean, edge clean (for skirting boards) , maximum clean (similar to turbo) or single room clean. There are no accessories such as virtual walls but there are two replacement sweeper brushes. The robot works by bounding along the floor (it almost looks like it bounces) until it detects a wall or piece of furniture, after which it will change direction. The suction is good, while the side sweepers do an impressive job at collecting additional dirt. But the most impressive part is that it barely makes a sound - you can easily watch the TV or chat while it gets to work. It's a great option if you want to test out the world of robotics without spending too much.
