Robot vacuums have come a long way from devices that roll, pick up light dirt, and bounce around your furniture. Now, these devices can often clean, manage schedules, spot clean and even empty their own cleaning bins. These seven products are some of the favorites we’ve tested at allbesthome, capable of removing dust and dirt while you focus on other things, like work, friends, and family. We also think you’ll find something likely within your budget bracket, starting at just $ 250.
Ecovacs N8 +
Ecovacs N8 + review: powerful and a little quieter while it cleans
The $ 599 Ecovacs N8 + works on both carpets and wood floors, and lets you customize settings for electric cleaning, scheduling, and more. A little extra for this robot vacuum is that it comes with an automatic dump station, which means the N8 + can empty the bin on its own. The N8 + also did a great job of cleaning. Robot vacuums are rarely powerful wringers, but for light cleaning this one worked well. And the company says it can pick up over 99% of bacteria.
The Ecovacs N8 + connects easily with Google Assistant and we were able to start the robot with our voice. Amazon Alexa, however, didn’t sign in, which you should consider if you’re using Amazon’s voice assistant.
Roborock S5 Max
Roborock S5 Max
We’re pretty sold on the $ 599.99 Roborock S5 Max, one of the first robot vacuums we saw that is a good, smart vacuum but can handle cleaning very well. We believe that the ability to adjust the amount of water coming out of the S5 Max is what turns the device into a very efficient robot mop.
You can also program the S5 Max and lock coins virtually in the app. The vacuum cleaner is extremely powerful and you can run it through an iOS and Android app, it also works with Amazon Alexa, which means the S5 Max works, you just have to ask.
Neato Botvac Connected D7
Neato Botvac Connected D7
We love the $ 599.99 Neato Botvac Connected D7 for a number of reasons. We note that these aren’t the cheapest robot vacuums out there, but in a sea of rounded devices the Botvac Connected D7 has an edge, literally. The flat-angled side on its front means the vacuum can clean corners more easily, removing chunks of debris from the hardest-to-reach places that rounder robots struggle to reach. We also love that the Neato vacuum works with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, which means you can get them to work just by asking out loud. There is also an app that maps your space.
Unique kid-friendly feature makes the $ 650 Roborock S7 robot vacuum worth a look
The $ 650 Roborock S7 is a very nice robotic vacuum cleaner, powerful as both a mop and vacuum, and has virtual features as well as physical features like a child safety lock. There’s a clean design, with a roller that helps keep small things, like hair, from getting tangled.
You can adjust the cleaning force levels and also the suction power. There is also a “ Do not disturb ” mode so that you can prevent the robot from moving during meetings, and you can also create a defined cleaning schedule. Be aware that it will not connect to Amazon Alexa, but will connect to Google Assistant. Overall, however, we think the S7 is a solid robot vacuum, easily worth an upgrade if you’re buying a new device – or great for a new user.

This Lidar mapping robot vacuum costs just $ 250, can also handle scheduling, and has three different suction levels: Quiet, Standard, and Powerful.
