Our selection of the best robot vacuum cleaners
Tired of having to vacuum your living room or bedroom every week? Would you rather spend your evening watching Netflix? Buying a robot vacuum, whether entry-level or high-end, will allow you to maintain your home without lifting a finger. Depending on your budget and your expectations, here is our selection of the best robot vacuum cleaners available in 2020. Follow the guide.
Dirt Devil M607
We start with the most accessible and within everyone’s reach. Intuitive, efficient and easy to use, the Dirt Devil M607 is the ideal robot vacuum if your budget is rather tight. For less than 100 €, this model does not do much… but it does it well! The Dirt Devil M607 indeed focuses on cleaning your floor but sins by the lack of several features popular with users: the WiFi connection, to control or program it via your smartphone, or a charging station, which automatically accommodates most of the connected vacuum cleaners. If you are looking for a solution to maintain your fireplace for you, the Dirt Devil has what you need!
Xiaomi Mi Robot 1S
More complete than the Dirt Devil, the Xiaomi Mi Robot 1S is the successor to the first generation of the Chinese manufacturer’s bestseller. He inherits the strengths of his predecessor, notably his Excellent value. For less than 400 euros, you get a powerful robot vacuum cleaner, of good manufacturing quality and which offers a very comfortable autonomy of 2 and a half hours thanks to its 5200 mAh battery.
The Mi Robot 1S vacuum robot has a sensor on board to better orient itself around the house and to separate the rooms. The cleaning time is programmable for one or more parts at a time. We will also appreciate the very clean interface of its mobile application, voice control thanks to the personal assistant Xiaomi AI speaker, an alternative to Google Assistant and Alexa. The precise mapping that allows you to scan your interior to define the areas to be cleaned!
iRobot Roomba 960
The iRobot Roomba 960 offers one of the best value for money in the iRobot range in 2020. It shines with the simplicity of its iHome app that is packed with control features. The robot embeds 6 optical sensors that allow efficient mapping of the interior space and precise coverage of the areas to go or avoid depending on your needs. Its AeroForce system provides powerful 3-step cleaning to completely vacuum dirt, animal hair and other encrusted debris.
Thanks to Dirt Detect dust sensors, the dirtiest areas are detected automatically for a deep cleaning with its 2 multi-surface brushes that adapt to different types of surfaces, whether carpets, hard floors, etc. When it runs out of battery life, the iRobot Roomba 960 robot vacuum automatically returns to its station and then resumes the cleaning cycle after recharging. It is also compatible with Amazon Alexa for voice control.
This robot vacuum cleaner is a real master key that allows you to clean all your rooms in depth and intelligently avoiding all types of obstacles and accessing the least improbable corners after a 3D mapping of space, thanks to its 12 sensors including an LDS, an ultrasonic radar, not to mention its gyroscope and its accelerometer. The capacity of the dust box is 0.48L.
Its suction power is 2000 pa and it offers an autonomy of 2.5 hours thanks to its battery with a comfortable capacity of 5200 mAh. Do not hesitate to consult our review of the Roborock S50 which pleasantly surprised us with its ease of handling, its design and its efficiency.
Neato Botvac D701
Are you looking for a complete and versatile robot vacuum cleaner? There’s nothing like the Neato Botvac D701 with all of the latest manufacturer’s features to ensure you get a great clean. Its LaserSmart navigation system scans all your parts at 360 degrees and creates precise maps for flawless efficiency, whatever their size. Its flattened shape on the side extracts debris and dirt from all angles, especially along walls, better than fully round robots.
A turbo mode allows you to shift to higher gear to vacuum more powerfully the dirtiest areas or with heavily encrusted debris. The Neato Botvac D701 robot vacuum offers up to two hours of battery life, a comfortable margin for a thorough cleaning.
Samsung PowerBot VR1DM7020UH
If you are a fan of Samsung products, we cannot recommend PowerBot highly enough, a powerful 80W robot vacuum with a motor Digital Inverter with Cyclone Force for the most comfortable performance. Each brand goes there with its mapping technology. The Korean manufacturer for his part relies on its Visionary mapping Plus solution for a thorough cleaning of all your parts.
Added to this is Edge Clean Master technology which detects walls and systematically deploys an additional brush to suck up dust from baseboards and corners. The advertised autonomy of this robot vacuum cleaner is one hour. Thanks to the “cyclone” mode, the dust is perfectly compressed in the container to optimize the suction volume and the latter is emptied very easily.
