iRobot Roomba 980

Performance and Conclusions The Roomba 980 uses several built-in sensors to build a map of your home as it cleans. It goes boldly forth, bumping into things until it learns the lay of the land. The more it cleans, the more it learns to keep track of...

Shark Rotator Pro Lift-Away

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.

Neato Botvac D85

Neato's Botvac D85 is a solid robot vacuum, but I'd stick with the original Botvac series for superior overall performance.

Dyson DC75 (Cinetic Big Ball)

Does your current vacuum seem to be getting worse with time? Is it failing to pick up all the crumbs and debris that it used to? Well, when's the last time you changed the filter? Never, huh? Don't worry, me too. Now that most vacuums don't even use...

IRobot Roomba 880

The Roomba 880 is the most well-rounded, capable bot we've encountered so far, but the $449 Neato Robotics XV Signature Pro still wins the pet hair performance test on all flooring surfaces.

Bosch BCH6PETGB

We're big fans of Bosch's Athlet cordless vacuum cleaner range. The models we've tested deliver the goods for day-to-day vacuuming and are easy to use, but they've been a bit lacking where mucky pets are concerned. Enter the new Athlet ProAnimal, which...
