My wife and I bought one in March when they were on sale. The one we bought seemed to work fine but it navigated through bumping into things. Put your leg in front, it would bump you and adjust. It would bump into EVERYTHING.
We just thought that was how it was supposed to operate.
We bought another one on sale a few months after and this one AVOIDED everything. I mean even our dogs got used to it and knew that though they were on the rug sleeping that Eufy would roll up on them a turn away. It wouldn't bother their sleep.
So my wife and I figured out that the first one we had bought was actually defective and returned it. Having no experience with how these should work we didn't know it was broken until we were exposed to one that actually worked as intended.
Anker sent a replacement, they are good about that. THey even took up the cost of UPS there and back which is nice.
Sad thing is the one that arrived also has some faulty collision hardware/software in it. I am trying to figure out if its just some sort of setting that can bet turned on or off like telling it to hug the walls overrides the cliff sensor and turn that setting off sort of thing.
2 duds in a row isn't a great track record for a company.
But yes. Your Eufy should avoid running into things most time unless it can not. Its actually not a huge deal for us but my wife has mobility issues and arthritis in her ankles. Getting hit by the vacuum actually hurts her.
