The Neato Botvac D80 is notable for having a larger storage container and offering more suction power than the Deebot. The former means you don't have to empty it as often and the latter suggests it can pick up more dirt on each pass, which might not be that important if you're running your vacuum on a regular schedule.

For slightly more money, you can purchase the Deebot Ozmo 930 and get many more features like a HEPA filter, which is a specific kind of filter that can be helpful for people with allergies or asthma; a wet mopping option for cleaning bare floors; and voice integration so you can turn your vacuum on/off using Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.

Even if these extra features aren't important for your household, you should be aware the Deebot Ozmo 930 also has the advantage of being able to run 110 minutes between charges. The Neato model, by contrast, can only run 60 minutes before needing a charge.

Our bottom line: We believe the Deebot Ozmo 930 is worth the extra money; don't skimp, get the better vacuum.
