This is our verdict of the Ecovacs Deebot N8 PRO+ based on several hours of research of reviews from both experts and users.
The Deebot N8 Pro+ is one of the high-end robot vacuums in Ecovacs. It can vacuum, mop, and empty its own dust bin. But of course, it also comes at a high price.
It has an auto-empty station that can store 30 full dustbins or a month's worth of dust. This allows you more time for other things since the robot vacuum is almost fully automated. However, like other auto-empty bins, it produces an extremely loud noise when cleaning its dust bin. It also requires maintenance because pet hairs might clump in the dustbin as they might not be able to fit through the small exits.
The Deebot N8 Pro+ boasts its TrueDetect technology that works similarly to the AI-based technology of the Deebot OZMO T8 AIVI. Both can detect and avoid obstacles present on the floor but the way they do it is different. The N8 Pro+ utilizes laser-based 3D technology, while the OZMO T8 AIVI has a camera mounted at the front that serves as its eye.
The TrueDetect feature can identify any objects even as small as 2mm and doesn’t have a limited number of objects that it can detect, unlike the OZMO T8 AIVI. However, this ability might be a disadvantage if you have uneven floors because it is sensitive and might avoid areas with small bumps thinking that it is an obstacle.
The Deebot N8 Pro+ has an impressive vacuuming performance with 2600Pa. However, its mopping function is not that impressive because it just drags a damp cloth over the floor. But the advantage of the mopping function from other basic robot vacuums that have a mop is that it has an electronically controlled pump. The water tank won’t have an unnecessary water leak and you can control the water flow within the app.
The app of the N8 Pro+ offers various features, such as selective room cleaning, no-go zones, no-mop zones, adjustment of suction and water flow, scheduled cleaning, and many more.
Overall, the Deebot N8 Pro+’s mapping, route planning, vacuuming, and obstacle avoidance are all top-notch, making it worth the expensive price. It supports a lot of impressive features that allow the users to experience quality cleaning.
