Neato BotVac 85

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.

Neato XV-21

The XV-21 is a great all-around robot vacuum and a viable Roomba alternative, but among Neatos, we'll stick with the brainier, similarly priced XV Signature Pro.

Neato XV Essential

This robot vacuum is a whopping $320 less than the iRobot Roomba 880 and performed similarly well. However, its cheap filter makes it hard to use -- if you want a Neato, stick with the $399 XV Signature or the $449 XV Signature Pro.

iRobot Roomba 880

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.
