The Shark is a very good vacuum with solid construction and intuitive design. Other models may have performed better, but none of them can match this sweeper's value for the price.
For $300 (or £260) the Braava might be tempting, but consider holding out for something smarter, more powerful, and with more features.
The Oreck Touch is an exceptional vacuum that left us all highly impressed. It's an excellent choice for anyone looking to upgrade to a high-end machine.
Neato's D7 will be the company's smartest vacuum yet.
With no real smarts and relatively little actual cleaning power, this sad robot is borderline useless.
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.
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.
If the price feels right, you like options, and you don't have a pet, the Eureka could be a great option.
If you're looking for an easier way to get your windows shining and dirt free, the Winbot could be just the thing.
The BotVac's design diverges a bit from Neato's classic XV line.
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.
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.
The $149 Moneual Rydis UV-C Vacuum Cleaner U60 is certainly not the most expensive handheld vacuum, but it has a few cool features that might make it worth your while.
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.
If your cleaning needs are limited to dust and other small stuff, this Samsung is stellar, but plenty of other uprights deliver better performance and usability for less.
The cyclonic vacuum cleaner from the French cookware and appliance company isn't as good as Dyson's stick cleaners. But it's pretty decent.
Samsung's slimmed-down Powerbot VR7000 robot vacuum promises to go where other floor cleaners can't. It works with Amazon's Alexa, too.
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.
