Robot vacuum cleaner reviews

We test 12 robot vacuum cleaners in the CHOICE labs, including models from iRobot, LG, Hoover and more.

Last updated: 17th March 2014

Kicking back while an artificially intelligent device cleans the house sounds like a dream. But how do robot vacuum cleaners really perform? We review 12 models, priced between $199 and $1299, to tell you which ones:

  • pick up dirt best from hard floors, corners and edges
  • remove the most dirt and pet hair from carpet, and
  • are the quietest.

Want CHOICE's advice on what to look for when you're shopping for a new vacuum, or how to get the best out of the one you have? Try our new buying guides and other tips from our experts on the vacuum cleaners category page.
