Best Robotic Vacuums of 2022

The Roomba i3’s cleaning performance is strong, too. The brushless, rubberized rollers are great for pet hair—it earns an Excellent rating on that test. It’s also great at avoiding bot-snarling hazards like power cords

mid level robotic vacuum cleaner

The media could not be loaded. I've own older iteration of the iRobot Roomba and my last one is already 6+ years old so I was excited to test an all new version and check out new features. As it's mid range it's not very clear if it's better to stay with a lower end model or get a higher end one unl...

I got a shark ai yesterday. Doesn't generate cleaning reports either. Overall I think their app is trash. Thinking about returning it and getting a Roomba i3

Does not pick up pet hair as promised!

This has been a waste of time and money. I had a Eufy that was absolutely wonderful and vacuumed pet hair with no problems. I thought I was upgrading when I purchased this Roomba but boy, was I wrong! It does indeed pick up the pet hair...but then spits it back out in tight little wads all over the ...

I personally think iRobot Roomba brand is superior only because they’re the only ones that have 2 brush rolls, meaning it does a really good job of getting hair / dirt out of carpet.


iRobot Roomba i3+ Robot Vacuum Review - Vacuum Wars

So the bottom line is that, as far as i can tell, the i3 is as good or better in terms of cleaning than the i7 for a cheaper price. It has the exact same auto, empty bin system for a cheaper price. It navigates with the same efficient back and forth rows for a cheaper price

Roomba i3+ is within your budget and empty’s itself when it gets full. Picks up dog hair on hardwood and carpet pretty easily.


I'm a convert!

Charge and resume is where it's at. Having a large main floor, a robo vac without this feature needs to be minded and monitored in order to clean the whole area, that's not my idea of convenience. The i3 can charge and resume without fancy LIDAR or cameras. And the baseboards against hardwood and ti...
