iRobot Roomba 960 Robot Vacuum
EDITORS' TAKE

iRobot Roomba 960 Robot Vacuum

iRobot adds a new connected robot vacuum to its lineup that's actually kind of affordable.

MSRP: $700.00

Visit manufacturer site for details.

Dyson 360 Eye
REVIEW

Dyson 360 Eye

The 360 Eye by Dyson is a very good robot vacuum, but competitors offer similar features and better performance for less.

LG Hom-Bot Square
REVIEW

LG Hom-Bot Square (2016)

It's a competent cleaner, but the LG Hom-Bot Square lags far behind less expensive Neato and Roomba models. We recommend sticking with those.

3 stars Editors' rating on June 10, 2016

MSRP: $899.00

Dyson V8
EDITORS' TAKE

Dyson V8

Dyson's new lightweight vacuum is more powerful than its predecessor, while the company's new stand-up vacuum can't be pushed over.

Pricing not available

Ecovacs Deebot D79
EDITORS' TAKE

Ecovacs Deebot D79

The Deebot D79 from Ecovacs can handle both hard floors and soft carpets, and takes robot vacuuming to another level with the brains to automatically empty its dustbin.

iRobot Braava Jet 240 Mopping Robot
EDITORS' TAKE

iRobot Braava Jet 240 Mopping Robot

The iRobot Braava Jet 240 covers less floor space than its predecessor, but improves on the design in hope of a more thorough clean.

Dyson Small Ball Vacuum Cleaner
EDITORS' TAKE

Dyson Small Ball Vacuum Cleaner

The Small Ball is a mini version of Dyson's standard upright vacuum, but also promises at least one key update.

Black & Decker SMARTECH Cordless Lithium Hand Vacuum with Scent
EDITORS' TAKE

Black & Decker SMARTECH Cordless Lithium Hand Vacuum with Scent

AutoSense changes the suction based on floor type for these battery-powered models, and tops the list of their clever new features.

The CordZero from LG, on display at CES 2016, automatically stays at your heels as you move throughout your house.

Samsung PowerBot Turbo VR9350 Robot Vacuum
EDITORS' TAKE

Samsung PowerBot Turbo VR9350 Robot Vacuum

The app-enabled version of Samsung's robot vacuum will map your home onto your phone and let you tell it exactly where and how you want it to clean.

Samsung Powerbot Essential Robotic Vacuum
EDITORS' TAKE

Samsung Powerbot Essential Robotic Vacuum

The $700 PowerBot Essential features a few upgrades and begs a few questions.

Neato Botvac Connected Robot Vacuum
REVIEW

Neato Botvac Connected Robot Vacuum

The Neato Botvac Connected is better at cleaning floors than any other robot vacuum on the market, and it costs less than its app-enabled rival, the iRobot Roomba 980. If you're willing to live without remote controls, you can save some money by sticking with the previous generation of Neatos -- but we think this one's worth the splurge.

Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium Ion Brushroll Clean Xtra
REVIEW

Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium Ion Brushroll Clean Xtra

The Ergorapido is a nice-looking, easy-to-use vacuum that's in the wrong line of work. It's a vacuum cleaner you'll enjoy taking out of the box, then want to put back into the box once it starts struggling to actually clean your floors.

iRobot Roomba 980
REVIEW

iRobot Roomba 980

iRobot's Wi-Fi-enabled Roomba 980 is an exciting hunk of next-gen vacuum tech, but it didn't wow us during testing. I'd hold off on this pricey automated floor cleaner until we review Neato's Botvac Connected and Dyson's 360 Eye.

Neato Botvac D85 Robot Vacuum
REVIEW

Neato Botvac D85 Robot Vacuum

Neato's Botvac D85 is a solid robot vacuum, but I'd stick with the original Botvac series for superior overall performance.

Eureka Brushroll Clean Upright Vacuum with SuctionSeal AS3401A
REVIEW

Eureka Brushroll Clean Upright Vacuum with SuctionSeal AS3401A

Though not as maneuverable or as well-rounded as the competition, the Eureka Brushroll Clean with SuctionSeal is a great carpet cleaner with a couple of nice extras at a budget-friendly $200 price.

Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away NV752
REVIEW

Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away NV752

With a remarkable amount of flexibility afforded by its well-implemented features, the Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away is as easy to use as any full-size upright we've tested. To top it off, it cleans almost as well as vacuums that cost twice as much.

Samsung Powerbot VR9000
REVIEW

Samsung Powerbot VR9000

Top-of-the-line models from Roomba and Neato each clean better than the PowerBot while costing hundreds less. We're sticking with those.

Dyson v6 Absolute
REVIEW

Dyson v6 Absolute

As usual, Dyson produced a competent product that costs too much. At $600, the Absolute isn't worth the upgrade over the Linx or even over other Dyson sticks.

Black & Decker 36V Max Lithium Stick Vacuum with ORA Technology
REVIEW

Black & Decker 36V Max Lithium Stick Vacuum with ORA Technology

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.

Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Allergy
REVIEW

Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Allergy

Dyson reinvents the wheel with the Cinetic series, and though the filterless approach works, it doesn't add enough practical convenience to justify the price jump over similarly capable competition.

Black & Decker 24V Lithium Stick Vacuum with ORA Technology
EDITORS' TAKE

Black & Decker 24V Lithium Stick Vacuum with ORA Technology

Black & Decker's newest stick vacs promise lots of suction and long lasting power.

Miele Scout RX1
EDITORS' TAKE

Miele Scout RX1 (Black)

Inside the Miele Scout RX1 are seven IR sensors, a digital camera, plus a gyroscope to scan rooms and hunt down dirt.

Dirt Devil Lift & Go
REVIEW

Dirt Devil Lift & Go

Contrary to its appearance as a real bargain, usability issues and subpar cleaning performance mar this Dirt Devil.

Dyson v6 Motorhead
REVIEW

Dyson v6 Motorhead

Dyson's v6 Motorhead competes well enough as a high-end stick vac, but poor battery life and a tendency to clog with large particles hold the v6 Motorhead back from replacing your full-size upright.

Soniclean VT Plus
REVIEW

Soniclean VT Plus

With decent performance and a price of just $200, this vacuum might make sense for value-minded minimalists, but you'll need to look elsewhere for something more modern or feature-rich.

Hoover Air Cordless
REVIEW

Hoover Air Cordless

Hoover's Air Cordless ushers in a welcome new vacuum category, but it still needs some work to match the performance of our most highly rated uprights.

Moneual Rydis H67 Pro

If you want a no-fuss floor cleaner, stay away from the Moneual Rydis H67 Pro.

iRobot Scooba 450
REVIEW

iRobot Scooba 450

iRobot's Scooba 450 isn't perfect, but it's a solid, albeit pricy, choice for small space cleaning.
