Eufy robotic vacuum cleaners have gained immense popularity and become one of the most sought-after brands in the market. Renowned for their affordable prices, convenient accessory replacement and excellent cleaning performance, Eufy Clean X9 Pro and RoboVac X8 have established themselves as key players in the mid-range robotic vacuum segment.

However, the main difference lies in the fact that the X8 Hybrid has the capability to both vacuum and mop, along with an additional 250ml water tank. Besides, the X8 is limited to vacuuming only and does not have a water tank, although it does have a larger dust box size. This explains why the X8 Hybrid is priced higher than the X8.

X9 Pro also includes a carpet detection feature, automatically raising the mop by 12mm to maintain a dry cleaning process when encountering carpets.
There are three performance superiorities of the X9 Pro over the X8:

These designs effectively combat stubborn stains on the floor.
