Current Roomba Deals
As simple as Roombas get, the 614 does not boast high end features such as: brushless rollers, recharge and resume, logical navigation, and app connectivity. What it lacks in premium features, it makes up in price. A good starter robot vacuum for those just getting into the home automation scene.
Ecovacs DeeBot N79
A high-efficiency triple stage filter, mobile apps and an effective clean all in one robot? Can it be? The Ecovacs N79 seems to think so. While it isn’t perfect (no smart home integration, for example) it can get the job done on small and moderate-sized floor plans. With the ability to schedule cleaning cycles and come home to near-spotless floors, makes the N79 one fo the most sought after models available.
It remains to this day, one of the most reviewed and tried robots on the market. All of those people can’t be wrong. If you are thinking about giving the DeeBot N79 a run for its money, right now is the time. A mid-range, budget-friendly robot.
Shark Ion 750
The Shark Ion 750 is a step up from the 720 model by adding wireless communications. You still get an inexpensive robot capable of keeping hard flooring and low pile carpet clean, but now you can enjoy mobile app and voice command controls. You will still have to restart the robot after a charging cycle manually, but with a capability of running up to 70 minutes on a single charge, it won’t be that often.
This is a good robot to consider, especially if you are considering adding a second robot to your home, or just want to test out the cleaning abilities of these machines without breaking the bank.
Neato D3 Connected
Neato has a D-series that continues to grow, and impress. While the original BotVac started it all, Neato soon learned that their consumers wanted wireless communications and mobile apps. Enter the D-series connected. The D3 Connected is the baseline model that all others are modeled after. It has the familiar D-shape to help the robot get into corners.
It also boasts a 2600mAh battery with a short recharge time (3 hours) and a long runtime (1 hour). Able to cover all hard flooring, low and medium pile carpeting, the D3 Connected is a viable option for those looking to save money on a name brand robot. If you want to save cash and have clean floors, this is not a bad one to get.
iRobot received a lot of rave reviews for their 900 series line up and one of the unsung heroes was the Roomba 960. Complete with brushless extractors and a large collection bin, maintenance has never been so easy. The large battery and camera-based navigation mean you don’t ever have to worry about missing a cleaning cycle or coming home to a half-finished job. This is one of our perennial favorites and the recommended vacuum for most households.
Xiaomi Roborock S5
Let’s assume you own a mansion and need a robot to run for over four hours to clean it all. Let’s also assume you need a mobile app, high-quality filtration and do not own any high-pile carpeting. While you may not fit all of these criteria, the Xiaomi Roborock can handle all of that. The market-leading 5200mAh battery produces up to 250 minutes of runtime. Astounding, we know.
It also boasts the ability to be a true wet mopping robot. It has a huge reservoir for water and a giant collection bin for dust and debris. It almost sounds too good to be true. The main issue is that the battery isn’t going to give you a full 250 minutes of run time. Instead, you can expect about 150 to 180 minutes. However, for a sweep, vacuum and mopping unit, the Mi 2 (as it is known) is still better than bObSweep and ILIFE’s V-series in this regard.
Past Robot Vacuum Deals
The Roomba 620 offers a great clean on most flooring at a low cost. You won’t find a lot of fancy tech on this machine. Instead, you get a large capacity dust bin, easy to control push button start and the ability to clean all floor types (high pile carpet excluded).
If you want to enter the robotic vacuum market or are looking to spend as little as possible on a trusted name brand, the Roomba 620 is a worthy of consideration.
The Roomba 635 is an early 600 series robot with a no-frills approach. For those that like the ability to just push a button and forget it, the 635 is right up your alley. It has a large collection bin and a long-lasting battery (up to an hour fully charged) to clean most sized homes. You can clean most floor types except high-pile or shag carpeting, and with the side brush, your baseboards and corners will remain spotless.
The early 600 series robots are becoming more and more phased out, which can be good news for the budget-conscious among us. When they go on sale, you can save a lot of money and still come away with a dependable machine.
Roomba’s 650 model was one of the first 600 series to include special features like the ability to create schedules and the inclusion of a virtual wall barrier with the purchase. With the 650 model, you can clean all floor types, all carpeting and have low maintenance. While some complain about having to clean out the brush rolls, the job is made as simple as possible. With a runtime of up to an hour, the 650 is a great fit for most homes.
When the discount is active, you can get the Roomba 650 and all of its abilities for a steal.
Roomba’s 675 model comes with a smaller dust bin than other 600 series models but has dual brush rolls with dirt detection sensors that allow the robot to clean most floor types thoroughly. Smaller floor plans and simple layouts will get the most advantage from this legacy model that utilizes a smaller battery and a more efficient clean that previous 600 models.
When the 675 goes on sale, you can save money as well as time. With the wireless communications and mobile app, you will have full control from anywhere and can create and edit schedules for cleaning cycles with ease.
The Roomba 680 has dual brush rollers a larger battery than the previous 600 series robots and an adequate collection bin. It also comes with wireless communications, allowing you the use of the iRobot Home app. Create cleaning schedules, get status updates and see if the battery needs to be charged right in the palm of your hand.
The Roomba 690 is the top of the 600 series robots and comes with two virtual wall barriers. These containment options are usually $80 a pair when sold separately. Now you get all the benefits of the 600 series models plus the containment in a single purchase. Enjoy spot cleaning, voice and mobile app controls as well as scheduling and easy maintenance with the Roomba 690
If you are looking for battery life in your Roomba, the 801 was the first to use the new XLife battery pack, giving the robot a runtime of up to 120 minutes. With two full hours and a large collection bin, your manual floor cleaning days are all but over. While it doesn’t have WiFi, it does have local controls that allow you to do edge cleaning, spot cleaning or full floor cleaning.
When it goes on sale, this 800 series model is a good bet because it cuts down on your cleaning time without adding a lot of technological fuss. Press the button and clean your floors; it doesn’t get much more simple than that.
The Roomba 860 is perfect for those that have a lot of pets or suffer allergies. The high-efficiency filter will remove up to 99% of in-home allergens as well as get in all the edges and corners of your home to remove pet hair and dander. The downside is that the collection bin is small and the battery will only give you about an hour of cleaning time before needing to be recharged.
The Roomba 877 has almost all of the prominent features of the 800 series giants like the 890, but at savings to make you do a double-take. The large battery will outperform the earlier 800 models with a runtime of up to 120 minutes. It will also relieve any maintenance worries with the brushless extractors that are simple to clean.
While you won’t have the benefits of mobile or voice controls, the 877 is a still good robot to pick up for its price (when it’s on sale).
The Roomba 880 was an attempt by iRobot to make a powerful and efficient 800 series robot that was budget-friendly. By using a smaller battery and removing the ability for wireless communications, they were able to succeed. The brushless extractors work well on all floor types, maintenance is a breeze and it comes with a remote control. Now you can create schedules and start cleaning cycles from the comfort of your favorite chair.
The Roomba 890 is the best of the best when it comes to the 800 series. It has every bell and whistle available on from the series, including:
- Brushless extractors
- HEPA quality filtration
- Large collection bin
- Easy maintenance
- Wireless communications for voice or mobile app controls
Let’s face it, until the end of 2018 the Roomba 980 was the best of the best. For many, it still is. Now with the i7 out, the price of the 980 continues to drop. With camera-based navigation, a huge collection bin and brushless extractors, the robot can clean any floor type with ease.
You also get the virtual all barriers and a near-maintenance free machine. What more could you ask for? Voice commands through Amazon Alexa devices and the most user-friendly mobile app? Done.
What’s better than owning what is arguably the best robot vacuum on the market today? Getting it at a discount! The Roomba i7 has every feature you could ever ask for, including digital containment through the mobile app, camera-based navigation, voice controls and the largest collection bin iRobot makes.
With a recharge and resume feature to ensure your entire floor is cleaned every cycle, the i7 can tackle any floor plan. In fact, it can tackle up to 10 different floor plans just from memory.
Imagine buying the top of the line robot vacuum that will remove the need to empty the collection bin at all, ever, as well as being able to clean your entire home in a single run. Now imagine buying this amazing robot at less than retail prices. That is exactly what you get with the current special.
The i7+ has a washable collection bin, a huge and efficient battery and a self-cleaning Clean Base to charge the battery as well as empty the collection bin for you. You will still have to empty the bag, but usually only about once a month. Maintenance is a breeze and controls are too simple to even worry about.
Shark Ion 720
With HEPA certified filters and dirt detection filters, the Shark Ion 720 is a great entry-level robot to add to your home. The features are more lack-luster than other models, but the bare-bones approach helps keep the overall cost down. While you won’t find mobile apps or voice commands, you can utilize the remote control or local buttons to create schedules and control the robot.
If you are looking for an ideal budget-friendly, starter robot, the Shark Ion 720 could be just for you.
Shark Ion r85
Shark’s Ion r85 model was a designed step up from the r75 that had a few shortcomings of its own. The smaller battery and lower runtime, for example, led many to think that the r75 was the better model.
However, the r85 uses the Smart Sensor 2.0 technology that allows it to perform better on low pile carpeting and hard flooring over the r75. The mobile app interface also has a few enhancements that keep the r85 on top of the r75 model.
When bObSweep introduced the PetHair model is was something that took the robot market by storm. Not only did it have a HEPA filter to collect in-home allergens, but came with a feature not seen before: UV light. Not only would the robot sweep and vacuum but on hard flooring it would run slower, using the UV light to sterilize as it went.
The small collection bin and short runtime on the battery left some wary of its abilities. However, for a low-cost robot, the bar was raised and many manufacturers scrambled to keep up.
bObSweep PetHair Plus
The PetHair Plus from bObSweep is a giant step up from the original model. It still has the HEPA filtration and UV sterilization, but a better battery means longer runtimes. One of the biggest complaints on the original model was the lack of local controls and the screen resolution. Both have been updated and improved in the Plus model.
Not only that, but the pet hair trapping model comes with four times the suction power and includes a bObi blOck for containment that the first model didn’t have. The PetHair Plus is worth picking up if you have a home with multiple pets.
Eufy RoboVac 11
Eufy’s RoboVac 11 is the baseline model for eh 11 series (which includes the 11 Plus and the 11S). The main difference here is that the Eufy 11 doesn’t have the BoostIQ to improve motor speed. What it does have is a triple tier filtration system, 1000pa of suction power and the ability to run up to 100 minutes on a single charge.
Because it is the base model, it is seen as an entry-level robot and the price is set accordingly. If you are looking for an easy to use vacuum that will trap in-home allergens and give you worry-free cleaning service for your low pile carpet and hard flooring, the Eufy 11 is a good bet.
Eufy BoostIQ RobotVac 30
Eufy made a name for itself with the 11 series and this continues with the RoboVac 30. Now with BoostIQ, the machine will increase suction as needed to provide up to 1500pa of suction. It will also collect the dirt, dust and debris in a large 0.6L collection bin. Combine that with the infrared remote control with widescreen and you can clean your entire floor space from the comfort of your own couch.
ILIFE set out to change the game with their A series. The A4S is one of the first and most affordable models in the lineup and doesn’t disappoint. It hosts a slew of features often found on more expensive models. Here you will get remote controls, five cleaning modes, three-stage cleaning and HEPA quality filtration.
What you won’t get is mobile or voice command controls or a huge price tag. Included are the charging station, two extra filters, an extra side brush and of course the robot, complete with a cleaning tool.
If you have children, furry four-legged kind or otherwise, the ILIFE vacuums are a life saver. Not only do they have HEPA quality filtration, but their suction power is outstanding. The major downfalls are a lack of US support (as the company is solely Chinese based), and an app that is difficult to use and hardly works right when you finally figure it out.
However, with intuitive features and local controls to back you up, these can be overlooked. The price savings alone make the A7 one of the most sought after secondary robots around. This vacuum is good for homes with pet hair collecting along the baseboards.
ILIFE finally figured out how to please almost everyone. The top-tier A8 is a budget-friendly model that competes well against the Eufy, Shark and Samsung robots in its class. While you won’t find Roomba quality or Neato functionality in these models, they will do their job without a lot of fuss. With HEPA filtration and improved mobile apps over the A6 and A7 models, the ILIFE A8 comes prepared for all your cleaning needs.
If you need a second robot or are looking to get into home-automation for the first time, the ILIFE A8 is the perfect model for just that.
If you are looking to sweep your floors, vacuum your carpet and mop your hard surfaces, the ILIFE V3S may be just what you are looking for. The suction is great and the remote control is easy to use (however the batteries are not included!). One of the stand out features is that there is no brush roll. Instead, you get a suction port that uses pure motor speed to collect the debris.
It will also mop. Kind of. While it isn’t a true mopping robot, there is a removable mopping pad you can put on the bottom of the robot to collect more dust and wipe wet floors up with ease. While the V3S isn’t the top of the ILIFE mopping and vacuuming robot line, it is a great entry level robot to help keep your floors clean.
A drastic improvement over the V3S model is the ILIFE V4. Made popular with their mopping pads and the ability to have incredible suction (up to 1800pa), ILIFE brings a design to the industry that is rarely seen. You won’t have much luck with the mobile app (because there isn’t one). However, the full function remote control allows you to start and stop cycles as well as create schedules.
The powerful suction, designed specifically for pet hair makes the ILIFE V4 a great bargain.
A true wet mop is hard to come by in the robot world. Especially one that tackles pet hair, carpeting and hard floors all at the same time. The ILIFE V8S has a 0.3L water reservoir that you can swap with the collection bin to perform a true wet mop. You will have to exchange the parts out between vacuum and mop, but it only takes a moment.
While you won’t get the use of smart home integration or the use of mobile apps, with the savings you get through this special, this is easily overlooked. The remote works just fine and you can create schedules or start and stop cleaning cycles, as well as selecting which modes to clean in.
Neato D5 Connected
The D5 Connected was the first model of the D-series from Neato to get wireless communications. Soon after it was available on the D3 and the D7 (all now a part of the “Connected” line-up.), and the D4 and D6 followed suit upon their releases. The D5 connected has a larger battery than the D3 with a 50% increase in runtime (up to 90 minutes).
The D5 also comes with the Neato Ultra filtration that is HEPA quality to capture 99% of in-home allergens.
Neato D7 Connected
If you are familiar with the Neato D-series robots, then you already know the D7 Connected is the best of the best. If you are not familiar, you should get acquainted quickly. The only major label to ever rival Roomba, Neato keeps pushing the envelope of what a robot vacuum can do.
Now with HEPA quality filtration, a huge battery offering two full hours of runtime and a collection bin you can almost sleep in (maybe not, but it is big), you won’t have any problems keeping your floors clean.
Samsung Powerbot R9350
Samsung isn’t a stranger to being a household name. When they entered the robotic vacuum market, it came as little surprise. What may be a surprise, though, is the Powerbot r9350. In what is the current top of the line model from the company, the r9350 has everything you can imagine. This includes a remote control that you can actually point to an area on the floor for the vacuum to go to. If you are fully integrated, you can use Samsung SmartThings to control which rooms the robot will clean (or stay away from).
With cyclone suction, a huge 12-inch brush roll and high-quality filtration, the Samsung rivals some of the bigger names on the market.
