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.
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.

Neato's midtier Botvac D5 offers plenty robot vacuum for the price, but you're better off spending extra on the most capable robot vacuum the company offers.
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.
