There are many robovacs on the market that claim to pack in all sorts of unique features. However, when you get right down to it, many of them are the same. These are some of the best, truly unique, genuinely feature-packed robot vacuums we've come across.
- Best for Most: Roborock S5 Max Robot Vacuum and Mop
- Reliable: iRobot Roomba 980
- Three-step cleaning: ECOVACS DEEBOT N79S
- Self-adjusting: eufy RoboVac 15c

The Roborock S5 Max Vacuum and Mop is easy to set up and works reliably and efficiently. You can set up no-go and no-mop places, and give it individual room instructions.
The Roomba 980 docks and recharges itself, uses Smart Mapping technology to map out your house and delivers 10 times the power of other robovacs.
The DEEBOT N79S runs for about 1.7 hours on a charge and includes a three-stage cleaning system: brush rollers, an edge brush, and vacuum suction.
The eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 15c uses BoostIQ Technology to automatically adjust suction power when extra vacuuming strength is needed to get the best clean.
The neato D7's D-shaped design lets it get into corners better. It uses laser-guided mapping and can be customized to pay extra attention to certain areas.
Keep your house neat and tidy with help from a robot maid
All of these vacuums are great options for delegating the time-consuming chore of vacuuming your home, ranging from barebones but budget-friendly to the truly expensive and robust. For our money, we'd go with the Roborock S5 Max Vacuum and Mop. It's a reliable workhorse of a vacuum and mopping system, easy to set up, and efficient. This powerhouse robot maps your entire home, so you can decide exactly which rooms get vacuumed and which get mopped.
If you're looking to spend a bit less money, though, then the ECOVACS DEEBOT OZMO 601 is worth taking a peek at. This vac is pet-friendly with its ability to pick up pet hair and its low volume. Use it on hard floors or carpet. Choose Max Mode to double the suction power when needed. It's a reliable cleaning tool that'll keep your floors spic-and-span.
