The best of…
Eufy RoboVac 11S
There are now plenty of affordable robotic vacuums, “but none of them blend into the background like the 11S does.” This nimble cleaner “sounds more like a fan than a vacuum,” and it’s far less likely to get stuck than most competitors.
EcoVacs Deebot N79S
“A quality heavy-duty pick,” the Deebot features a high-efficiency filter and multiple cleaning modes. You can control it using a handheld remote, a smartphone app, or, with an Alexa device, by voice command.

If you need a robovac that can also mop bathroom tiles and hardwood floors, consider this clever hybrid, which comes with a microfiber cloth attachment and an interchangeable dustbin and water tank. Even without a companion app, it’s “a very good value.”
iRobot Roomba i7+
This new high-end Roomba—shown with its docking station—“solves one of the most pressing robovac pain points: It can empty its own bin.” The $350 Roomba 690 is also a fine machine, but the i7+ has advantages, including a better air filter and carpet agitator.
Neato Botvac D4 Connected
Now that the navigational technology has improved, Neato’s midrange robovac “gives Roomba a run for its money.” The D-shaped dust buster uses lasers to map your home’s floor plan, and its suction power will trace clean, satisfying lines in most carpets.
