What are customers saying?
The Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 11S is backed up on Amazon with more than 2,300 customer reviews and.a 4.4-star rating out of five.
“It’s taken me many years to justify spending hundreds on a robot vacuum as I have a central vac system. I kept hearing how great they are and with kids and pets thought it would be helpful for a quick daily clean and I could do a regular vacuum weekly... It did its thing and randomly made its way around the main floor going under and around objects and did an amazing job. I couldn’t believe the fine dust it picked up ( I have it on the boost setting ). My tiles feel clean and I haven’t even mopped yet,” raves one five-star reviewer. “It did a better job than my central vac.”
“I have two giant breed dogs. A Great Dane mix and a super furry, heavily shedding St.Bernard Mix. It has been so wonderful having this vacuum to keep on top of the fur and dirt that the animals bring into the house,” adds another. “I was incredibly impressed with the amount of debris I empty from the canister after each use.”
“As for navigation, it runs around the house (1400 sq/ft) in a very random pattern but generally covers all bases before the battery dies and it effortlessly finds its way home,” the same reviewer continues. “I also love that it is thinner than other brands as it glides under chairs, couches and beds perfectly. Highly recommend.”
