The most impressive upright, stick, and robot vacuums from the models we've tested so far.
Even with all of its extra features, skip the Yujin Robot iClebo Arte if stellar performance is your top goal.
The Shark Rocket combines adequate cleaning power with a broad array of cleaning extensions into a recommendable, affordable, lightweight vacuum. Only its cord holds it back.
The BotVac's design diverges a bit from Neato's classic XV line.
The new Moneual Rydis H68 Pro vacuums like a traditional robot vac, but it also has both dry and wet mopping attachments.
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.
This highly maneuverable model finished behind the less expensive Hoover LiNX.
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.
Contrary to its appearance as a real bargain, usability issues and subpar cleaning performance mar this Dirt Devil.
Dyson's DC59 competes well enough as a high-end stick vac, but poor battery life and a tendency to clog with large particles hold the DC59 Motorhead back from replacing your full-size upright.
With claims of unique functionality, are these modern vacuums innovative, or just plain gimmicky?
