Test results
CHOICE Expert Rating (%) Expand to view more details.

This overall score is made up of hard floor dirt pick-up (40%), dirt removal from carpet (30%), cleaning corners and edges (15%), pet hair removal (15%). Ease of use is not scored as all models were very easy to operate.

Hard floor dirt pick-up performance (%) Expand to view more details.

We scatter a measured amount of sand evenly over a vinyl floor area and let the robot run for a set period of time, measuring the dirt pick-up at intervals throughout.

Dirt removal from carpet score (%) Expand to view more details.

We sprinkle sand evenly into a section of carpet and let the robot run for a set period of time on the carpeted area. The sand collected is weighed and recorded.

Cleaning corners and edges score (%) Expand to view more details.

Sand is spread into a right-angled corner, and the robot vacuum cleaners are assessed to see how close to the corner each one is able to pick up dirt.

Pet hair removal score (%) Expand to view more details.

We embed cat hair into the carpet and, as with the dirt pick-up test, we allow the robot vacuum cleaner to run for 15 minutes. We rate the vacs based on how much cat hair is left behind after the test.

Noise measured on carpet/hard floor (dBA) Expand to view more details.

Noise is measured at two metres. Even though most models produce similar sound readings, some emit a high-pitched whistle or various tones and alerts (even music!) that some people may find irritating.

Does it hit objects? Expand to view more details.

Robot vacuums bump objects as they find their way around, but good sensors and cameras can help them avoid frequent and/or heavy collisions.

Battery operation time measured (min) Expand to view more details.

We measure how long the battery will last for without a charge. Measured in minutes. We've noticed some models that seem to have a 'cleaning' mode and 'searching for home' mode. In these cases we measure battery life until the motor stops running (i.e; cleaning has stopped).

Reliability
Brand reliability score (%) Expand to view more details.

We use the information received from members who took part in the 2015 reliability survey to rate the most popular brands for reliability. na means no/not enough responses were received for this brand.

Owner satisfaction score (%) Expand to view more details.

In the 2015 reliability survey we asked owners of what they thought of their robot vacuum cleaner; rating them from excellent to terrible. We don't have enough responses from most brands.

Recommended products
Recommended Expand to view more details.

We recommend robot vacs that score at least 70% overall so long as they get at least 46% for carpet.

Origin Expand to view more details.

The model has a claimed origin somewhere on the model itself. This ought to be taken with a grain of salt, given it’s rare that all the materials for a product came from the one country.
