The iRobot Scooba 450 Floor Scrubbing Robot was designed with your hard-surface floors in mind.
The Roomba 880 is the most well-rounded, capable bot we've encountered so far, but the $449 Neato Robotics XV Signature Pro still wins the pet hair performance test on all flooring surfaces.
If price-point isn’t a factor and you’re looking for a robot vacuum to help you maintain multiple flooring types in your home, the Roomba 790 is an effective, low-maintenance purchase.
Road Trip 2010: CNET reporter Daniel Terdiman stops in on the maker of the hit robotic vacuum cleaner and learns what the company has in store for the future of military and home robotics.
Neato improved on its already-impressive robot vacuums with the BotVac line. Roomba 870 fans might find that Neato's BotVac 85 offers similar features and performance, but you get more accessories (like three filters rather than the 870's two) and much shorter run times.

iRobot's flagship robot vacuum is loaded with accessories, charm.
The Scooba 450 boasts that it is better at scrubbing floors with updated features and a new drying recharging station. CNET's Bridget Carey gets a demo of the new machine's three-cycle cleaning process.
The new Roomba 880 ditches the traditional vacuum cleaner brush. Why? iRobot is on a mission to cut down on two customer pain points: maintenance and cleaning frequency.
