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 360 Eye by Dyson is a very good robot vacuum, but competitors offer similar features and better performance for less.
For $300 (or £260) the Braava might be tempting, but consider holding out for something smarter, more powerful, and with more features.
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.
With no real smarts and relatively little actual cleaning power, this sad robot is borderline useless.
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.
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 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 want a no-fuss floor cleaner, stay away from the Moneual Rydis H67 Pro.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
