Neato's Botvac D85 is a solid robot vacuum, but I'd stick with the original Botvac series for superior overall performance.
Typical price: $775.00
The CNET Appliances team has reviewed all kinds of upright vacuums, stick vacuums, and robot vacuums. Here are the stand-outs within all three categories.
The Bissell Bolt Ion is a bad vacuum. It costs a reasonable $180, but it's such an ineffective pain that I wouldn't recommend it at any price point.
The Black & Decker Lithium Vacuum is mediocre and tedious to use. It needs to be better than that to be worth its $300 price point.
