Dyson DC 59 Animal

Dyson's DC59 competes well enough as a high-end stick vac, but poor battery life and a tendency to clog with large particles hold the DC59 Motorhead back from replacing your full-size upright.

IRobot Roomba 880

While there’s no denying that this vacuum does a great job at cleaning floors, we’re just not convinced that the extra features it boasts make it worth the exorbitant pricetag.

Moneual Rydis H68 Pro

Here at PCMag we've reviewed plenty of robotic carpet vacuums, as well as a handful of robotic floor cleaners with mopping capabilities, but we've yet to get our hands on a robot that does both. Enter the Moneual Rydis H68 Pro Hybrid Robotic Vacuum...

Miele S 8320 Cat&dog

Frankly, the S8320 is another outstanding product from Miele. It is a vacuum cleaner that sets out with a purpose, pet hairs, and executes that with efficiency and flair. Yet its high power, control, flexibility, light weight and great range of tools...

Miele Scout RX1

What I can say, though, is on paper Miele isn't bringing anything new that rivals aren't. That's not to say it won't perform better when tested, but fundamentally the Scout RX1 looks like more of an evolution than any sort of robot vacuum cleaner...

Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

Gtech AirRam

The AirRam doesn't perform well enough or offer enough cleaning options to justify its price.

Neato XV Signature Pro

Robotic vacuum cleaners have been around for a while, but with prices in the $700 range, you'll need deep pockets to take advantage of their time-saving abilities. Not so with the Neato XV Signature Pro, a powerful robotic vacuum that cleans your...

Neato XV-21

The XV-21 is a great all-around robot vacuum and a viable Roomba alternative, but among Neatos, we'll stick with the brainier, similarly priced XV Signature Pro.

Irobot Scooba 450

iRobot's Scooba 450 isn't perfect, but it's a solid, albeit pricy, choice for small space cleaning.

VAX C88-AM-B

The future of cleaning, some say, is robot vacuum cleaners. But in the present and in our experience those automated robotic vacuums have still got a long way to go for the perfect clean. Until then it's all about perfecting what we do manually, which...

Panasonic MC-UL712

Miele S8390 Silence

But it’s lack of sheer power does show up in cleaning results and it is relatively expensive for what it offers, particularly as new cordless models are arriving on the market offering similar power and cordless convenience.

LG Hom-Bot Square

iRobot Roomba 770

The second I hear “Roomba,” I just immediately think about salsa dancing as opposed to a robotic vacuum cleaner, but as we all know, it certainly applies to the latter as well. iRobot, the company behind the brand, has been revamping their line of of...
