The updated $300 price of the newly named v6 makes it stand out as one of the best stick vac buys we've tested.
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.
You can buy a better-performing vacuum for far less money, making the Dyson Ball Compact Animal a poor value.
The Shark Rocket combines adequate cleaning power with a broad array of cleaning extensions into a recommendable, affordable, lightweight vacuum. Only its cord holds it back.
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.
Because the QQ5 does not clean well in any setting, we cannot recommend it.
The Bosch Roxxter robot vacuum has a camera that keeps an eye on your home when you're away.
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.
Black & Decker's Smartech vac packs plenty of tricks into a reasonably priced package.
The Hom-Bot boasts some interesting bells and whistles, but after comparing its price and performance with the competition, it’s a tough purchase to justify.
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.
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.
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.
Samsung's slimmed-down Powerbot VR7000 robot vacuum promises to go where other floor cleaners can't. It works with Amazon's Alexa, too.
