iRobot Roomba e5 review

Test: Roomba e5 How good is he?

The Roomba e5 from iRobot is the latest device from the premium manufacturer of vacuum robots. He looks good, but is he as good as his predecessors, the 800 series? We tell you in this review.

Roomba e5 vs Roomba 895 | What is the difference?

From a technical point of view, there is not much new. Only the suction power has been increased again which actually was very good in the 800 series. Due to the increased suction power, the Roomba e5 is now also suitable for high-pile carpets. In addition, the design was revised. Thanks to a clever system, it is a lot less maintenance-intensive than its predecessors.

Review of the Roomba e5 from iRobot

The vacuum robot makes a very high-quality impression. This is known from iRobot. Handling and operation is very easy. We noticed very positively that the Roomba e5 is very easy to clean. For example, everything can be simply rinsed off or rinsed off with water. You can see that in the video above. This makes it very suitable for animal hair. He can be controlled via the mobile app. In it you can see when which part is to swap or you can set a schedule for cleaning. The integrated HEPA filter also cleans the ambient air of fine dust. We are disappointed with the navigation. This is a chaos principle. For this price we find, a systematic navigation must be present. Great is still the included Virtual Wall. This can be used to delimit an area that should not be cleaned.

Equivalent / Better alternative robot vacuums

A definitely better alternative is the Deebot 900/901 from Ecovacs. This robotic vacuum cleaner creates a virtual map of space and systematically descends. In addition, the virtual limitation is better solved. So if you do not have high pile carpets, I would buy the Deebot 900/901.

If you do not have high-pile carpets and are not allergic, you can buy the Roomba 671. Navigation and operation is the same as with the Roomba e5. Only the suction power is lower but still very good and no HEPA filter is there … but it saves almost 200 euros.
