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 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.
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?
If you're set on an Electrolux stick vacuum, I recommend the Ergorapido Power over the worse-performing UltraPower Studio, but the Hoover Linx offers superior value and performance.
If you're looking for a simple stick vacuum with exceptional performance, save some money and get the $180 Hoover LiNX. The $500 Dyson DC59 is a great high-end option if you want a variety of brush attachments and other special features.
