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.

MIELE COMPLETE C3 ALLERGY POWERLINE LOTUS WH SGFE0

Miele’s C3 Total Solution is a great all-round cylinder cleaner, offering a great choice of tools, impressive suction power and class-leading dust filtration standards. We like features such as the variable power on a foot switch, the tubes feel solid...

Bissell Lift-Off 2-in-1 Cyclonic Cordless Stick Vac 1189

For superior cleaning from a stick vac, the Bissell Lift-Off 2-in-1 Cyclonic Cordless Stick Vac 1189 was the top-performing vacuum of all the models we tested. It excelled in our tests for picking up sand, oatmeal, and more from a bare floor and along...

Dyson DC 54 Animal

A quick call to Dyson’s help desk suggested it wasn't a user fix, but they did immediately offer to get an engineer on the case. So unfortunately a minor breakdown on our test sample tainted what's otherwise an absolutely outstanding cylinder cleaner...

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

Bosch BCH625KTGB

However, its performance as a lightweight, powerful and highly manoeuvrable upright cleaner is excellent. We found it became our default vacuum cleaner for quick clean-ups and even major spring cleans around the office during the time we had it. For...

SC 2500 C

The Kärcher SC 2.500 C won't disappoint, but its excellent performance comes at a price and we'd like a longer cable.

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...

Fuller Brush Spiffy Maid Broom Vacuum FB-SPFM

The Fuller Brush Spiffy Maid Broom Vacuum FB-SPFM earned excellent performance scores when we tested picking up debris from a bare floor and edge cleaning. However, it performed poorly at removing pet hair on a low-pile carpet. This stick vac does not...

iRobot Looj 330

One of the benefits of living in New York State is that you get to see the leaves turn colors as the seasons change. Unfortunately, those colorful leaves eventually die and fall, but not all of them make it to the ground. In my case, it seems as though...

Numatic HVR 200 A Henry GOLD

This was actually not a bad result at all considering the low power motor and lack of turbo brush bar, but it wouldn’t be our first choice of Henry for pet owners – the Henry Xtra HVX1200 comes with Numatic’s Airo Brush head and costs around £50 more....

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...

Dyson DC41 Animal

You don't need to pay $649 to own a vacuum that cleans at this level, and if you are paying that much, you deserve a machine with a better design than this.
