Miele debuts the Blizzard CX1 at the IFA trade show in Berlin, its first bagless vacuum.
The Chinese phone maker has more lines than the London Underground. Its latest product is a robot vacuum.
The 360 Eye by Dyson is a very good robot vacuum, but competitors offer similar features and better performance for less.
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.
Dyson's new lightweight vacuum is more powerful than its predecessor, while the company's new stand-up vacuum can't be pushed over.
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.
The iRobot Braava Jet 240 covers less floor space than its predecessor, but improves on the design in hope of a more thorough clean.
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.
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.
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.
Neato's Botvac D85 is a solid robot vacuum, but I'd stick with the original Botvac series for superior overall performance.
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.
Top-of-the-line models from Roomba and Neato each clean better than the PowerBot while costing hundreds less. We're sticking with those.
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.
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 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's newest stick vacs promise lots of suction and long lasting power.
