Best Robot Vacuums of 2018

By Reviewed.com Staff

Whether you just like the idea of home automation, or you physically can't do the same level of cleaning anymore, a robot vacuum is there to help you pick up. And while the Roomba name is nearly synonymous with robot vacuums, there's a wider variety than you might think, which can make picking the one that's right for you that much harder.

Luckily, we make sure to put every robot vacuum that comes into our labs through their paces in a grueling test of their navigation, ability to clean, and ease of use. When the dust finally settles (in the vacuums, of course) our experts examine the results to determine which are the best of the best.

iRobot Roomba 980

The iRobot Roomba 980 is the new flagship model from the pioneering home robotics company. It has the battery life and navigation programming to zip from room to room with ease, but it also adds WiFi connectivity and multi-room cleaning. No robot vacuum is perfect—and this one had some trouble with dirt pickup. It's expensive, too. But if you have a whole floor to clean and the money to spend, it's worth a look.

Neato Botvac Connected

The Neato Botvac Connected has both brains and brawn. In addition to a navigation system that lets it find dirt, and powerful brushes that clean it up, the Connected can be controlled remotely via an app for your smartphone. This app can set cleaning schedules and even directly control the unit. All in all, the Neato Botvac Connected presents high-end technology in a relatively affordable package.

Eufy RoboVac 11

The Eufy RoboVac 11 combines a luxury aesthetic with an affordable price tag. Over the course of a week, the Eufy can match the performance of a full-sized vacuum. Combine that with a scheduling feature on the remote and you have a winner. However, the RoboVac suffers from a few drawbacks. This robot vacuum comes with no virtual walls to keep it out of unwanted areas, and clean times can last over an hour and a half.

iLife A4s

The iLife A4s is an affordable robot vacuum that gets the job done. With a retail price of around $199, the iLife is one of the best affordable robot vacuums on the market. In fact, it has a similar design to our top affordable cleaner, the Eufy RoboVac 11. What gives the A4s an advantage is its low, three-inch profile. Its cleaning cycles were long but effective. With a vacuum like this, dirt has nowhere to hide.

Dyson 360 Eye

The 360 Eye is Dyson's first robot vacuum. Like larger Dyson cleaners, it has a full-size brush head and a compact motor for improved suction, and it's packed with tech. In our tests, it did a good job picking up dirt, but it had a hard time reaching it. A tall design meant it couldn't fit under couches, and a spiral cleaning pattern left some debris behind. We weren't impressed by the lack of virutal barriers, either.
