1) iRobot Roomba S9 Plus
Perhaps the most premium on our list. This smart robot vacuum keeps improving itself and gets better at cleaning, navigating. If you're willing to spend more than $1000 for a robot vacuum, the iRobot Roomba S9 Plus is an excellent choice. It comes with a self-emptying bin which means it heads back to its base station to automatically empty its bin. Between its best-in-class navigational technology and mapping software, as well as its new edging capabilities that left every edge sparkling clean, I can honestly say that the iRobot Roomba S9+ is as close to robo cleaning nirvana as I’ve experienced.
2) Neato Botvac D7
If $1000 is too much to splurge on a robot vacuum, you can make do with something more in the $800 range, our tests showed several other robots that are equally good or better at removing dirt and dust than this pricey Roomba.
The Neato Botvac D7 Connected picked up more sand on hardwood floors and did much better on carpeted floors than the Roomba S9! It certainly its place as a top-notch cleaner by introducing smart features typically found in overpriced robot vacuums. By using laser navigation, the D7 Connected cleans efficiently. It also features interactive cleaning maps that use the floor plan of your home to determine where it should clean and at what height—an excellent feature for homes with varying floor levels and obstacles. An intuitive app allows you to check how things are going, and with its class-leading integration with third-party smart home devices and services, you can use the D7 with your voice assistant to complete different tasks around your house.
3) Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Mop Essential (MiJia G1)
The Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Mop Pro is an affordable robot vacuum that comes with an array of smart features. It can be used as a robot vacuum and mop individually, but it can also do both simultaneously. The smart mop feature is the most unique aspect of the device. It follows a Y-shaped pattern to mop the floor, resulting in a more thorough mopping. With this pattern, it can remove tough stains because it goes over the spot meticulously.
It also utilizes artificial intelligence, connectivity, and adaptive navigation system to deliver one of the best experiences on the list. It has a strong suction power to capture dirt, small pieces of debris, and even bigger chunks. It can generate airflow that can easily suck up sand and pebbles. The structure also features a body outfitted with soft bumpers so it can drive through areas without causing damage to knicknacks or furniture
4) ILife V5
A good entry level robot which gives you mid level functionalities, which is probably our least favourite product in this list.
The V5 is part of ILIFE's ever growing robotic vacuum family. If you are unaware of their previous products, it is a brand that focuses on home and office cleaning products. Their primary product up until now has been the V3 and V5. The V5 has basically the same features as the V3 but with upgraded sensors and navigation. Its battery function is also the same as the V3. And it comes with a dry mop function (but a dry mop is still better than no mop function yeah?)
Overall, the iLife V5 Pro model is a great budget cleaning robot. It has an aesthetically pleasing design and comes with all the standard features one looks for in a robotic vacuum cleaner such as infrared sensors, auto docking and charging, automatic resume, and varies cleaning modes.
