The Proscenic 800T has already established itself as a surprise hit of sorts in the robot vacuuming world. Coming in around the top end of entry-level robovacs and approaching the mid-range in terms of price, it has found a market among new and experienced robotic vacuum cleaner owners alike. At this price, it competes with some robovacs that we are already very fond of, such as the Eufy RoboVac 11S Max, Ecovacs Deebot N79S and the Bagotte BG600. That means that competition is stiff in what is the price range with the most options and we are interested to see what the Proscenic 800T does better than its rivals. We could tell in the early stages that it has plenty of features – you can see from the image that it comes with a mobile app, which immediately positions it ahead of the RoboVac 11S Max and the BG600 for those with an interest in remote connectivity. The 800T is also the only model of the four to support mopping, so it may well come out ahead of the competition if your home primarily consists of hard floors. Everything else that could potentially enable the 800T to stand out in the crowd will come to light in the full review below.

We would not go as far as to call Proscenic a household name. Indeed, it sounds like an outdoor camera to us, but they do have pedigree in the design and manufacture of household products. The Proscenic 800T is the most popular of several robot vacuums within the company’s range, and they also produce a selection of care and home products, spanning electric toothbrushes, mist humidifiers and more.

Having never used a Proscenic electric toothbrush, we shift our attentions firmly back to the 800T robot vacuum, and it is an exceptionally solid machine. We mentioned in the introduction that of the four comparable models in this price range, this is the only one to integrate robotic mopping, right out of the box. As the obvious differentiator, that makes it the perfect place to start.

Whether or not you need a robot mop comes down to the floors in your home. If you have gone with laminate, tiling or other hard flooring throughout the home, then it makes for an ideal combination. If you have gone for carpet throughout, with only the kitchen and bathroom having hard floors, then it is less of a consideration and your budget may well be better spent elsewhere.

Some robot vacuum/mop crossovers feel like the mopping functionality is added just so the manufacturer can say that it boasts mopping capabilities. That was the case with the Coredy R500+. We found the wet cleaning to be underwhelming at best, and we felt that it said it all about its mopping functionality that the water tank did not even come in the box and had to be purchased separately. With that said, the Coredy is marketed in a lower price bracket than the Proscenic 800T, so it is unsurprising that this model is more capable in that regard.

The water tank on the 800T not only comes integrated in the robovac itself, but also acts intelligently to regulate water flow to ensure that while the floor gets washed, it never gets too wet. If you have your own ideas about how much mopping power is required, you can also control the flow within the ProscenicHome app. If you are less interested in the underlying technology and more concerned with results, you’ll be pleased to know that the Proscenic 800T performs pretty well on wet cleans and will not disappoint, although there are superior options out there at higher price points.

The water tank has a decent 350 ml capacity and this, in conjunction with a run time of over 100 minutes, means that the device will keep on going until the job is done, both in mop and vacuum modes. Unlike some hybrid mopping robot vacuums, this one will not explicitly vacuum and mop at the same time, so it is usually a good idea to mop after a vacuum clean for the best results.

Even though the Proscenic 800T is very capable in wet cleaning scenarios, we wouldn’t throw out your regular mop just yet if you prefer cleaning right up to the edge. As with most round robot vacuums, the brushes are what enable them to clean into corners and up to edges, and they don’t do anything when in mop mode. You should therefore expect to do the outer edges of hard-floored rooms yourself.

Moving back to the ProscenicHome app and overall connectivity, the device impresses once again. The app does not do anything too out of the ordinary and is on par with the equivalent tools from the likes of Roomba and Eufy. Nevertheless, that makes it very handy, and you can take care of starting and stopping a clean, scheduling ongoing home cleans and monitor the cleaning map.

Voice control is available through compatibility with Amazon Alexa, although the software on this model is not yet capable of integrating with Google Home. Based on past experiences, this is something that will likely be added in future updates but, for the time being, voice control is limited to those with one or more Echoes in their home.

Now, we come to perhaps the most important element of all, that being the cleaning power. At 1,800 Pa of suction, the 800T certainly appears to be capable of holding its own. There is more to cleaning than straight suction but, much as with the wet clean functionality, it will not disappoint in most cases. This unit specialises in hard floors and thin carpets. Unsurprisingly, those with medium or thick carpets will have a better experience at higher price points, but that is the case with each of this robovac’s closest competitors too.

Proscenic 800T – Pros and Cons

  • Great standard vacuum cleaning and good mopping capabilities
  • Excellent connectivity across mobile phone app and Amazon Alexa support
  • Can clean for up to 2 hours and will return to dock when the job is done
  • Only suitable for hard floors and low-pile carpets
  • Relatively heavy at over 4.6 kg, although this is not unusual for robovacs with mopping functionality
  • Does not come with magnetic boundary strips in the box

Proscenic 800T – The Verdict

The Proscenic 800T is a very good robot vacuum, especially for the price. In spite of being in the price bracket with perhaps the stiffest competition, it is easy to see why it is so popular. Depending on specials and deals, you’ll find this model hovering somewhere in the top 20 most popular robot vacuums on Amazon, and we feel that such a position is warranted. It does precisely what you might hope for from a robovac at this price and, as noted, it edges ahead of the competition in this bracket if you consider a wet clean essential. With a decent mobile app and support for Amazon Alexa, the connectivity pulls ahead of some of the competition too. There is no question that you get plenty of robovac for your money here and it is an impressive model from a company that appears to be on an upwards trajectory.

Proscenic 800T Review

For a pure robot vacuum around this price and often slightly less, we would probably go for the Eufy RoboVac 11S MAX instead. You may as well save a bit of money if you do not need the mop, which is not as spectacular as you might hope, and do not require a mobile app or voice control. However, there are simply not many better options around this price for the same kind of features. Between the battery life and cleaning capabilities the Proscenic 800T is suitable for homes of any size, and it is only if you have thicker carpets and rugs that you’ll need to seek out an upgrade. This is not the best robot vacuum in the world by any stretch, but it does not pretend to be and if you want a robovac with plenty of bang for your buck in the right conditions, the 800T is a worthy purchase.
