Roomba 960

Irobot Roomba 960 robot vacuum

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 favorite robot vacuums and the recommended vacuum for most households.

 

Roomba i7+

Roomba i7+ docked on its charging and auto-emptying base

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. This is our recommended Roomba deal.

Roomba s9+

the Roomba s9 plus

This is the best robot vacuum on the market, period. None of the other vacuums come close to the s9’s performance.There is currently a discount on Amazon, slicing a good chunk off the price. Still a very expensive robot vacuum and not for most households who just need maintenance cleaning.

Ecovacs DeeBot N79

Top down view of the 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 robot vacuums 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

Shark Ion Robot 750 pictured with a smartphone.

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 vacuum 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 Botvac D3 Connected plugged on to its charging base.

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.

Roomba 614

Bird's eye view of the Roomba 614

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.

 

Roomba 650

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 675

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.

 

Roomba 680

The Roomba 680 has dual brush rollers a larger battery than the previous 600 series robot vacuums 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.

 

Roomba 690

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

 

Roomba 860

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.

 

Roomba 890

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

 

Roomba 980

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, this robot vacuum 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.

 

Roomba i7

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.

 

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 vacuum, 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.

 

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 vacuum 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 A8

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 vacuum or are looking to get into home-automation for the first time, the ILIFE A8 is the perfect model for just that.

 

ILIFE V8S

A true wet mop is hard to come by in the robot vacuum 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.
