TOP 10 robotic vacuum cleaners in 2018
iRobot Roomba 980
In our opinion, the iRobot Roomba 980 is considered the most reliable and functional robot vacuum cleaner in 2017-2018. The cost of this device is 54-58 thousand and we can say with confidence that the price is justified. If you choose this model of vacuum cleaner, the following options will be available for you:
- dry cleaning of rooms;
- automatic installation for recharging;
- battery operation for two hours;
- the robot can be controlled by phone;
- You can set the schedule mode;
- automatic increase in productivity when cleaning carpets.
Of course, on the forums you can also find some negative reviews about the iRobot Roomba 980, but they are not too weighty: there are difficulties in managing from a smartphone, it takes 120 minutes to charge (although similar models in the rating have the same or even less time) .
Neato Botvac D7 Connected
Next on the list is the new Neato Botvac D7 Connected model, which has twice as much memory compared to its predecessors and orientates itself with the highest accuracy in space thanks to a laser sensor. The device can be set on the diagram certain zones that it needs to clean, or where it should not go. Management, respectively, is from a smartphone. The traditional D-shape for Neato, as always, allows better collection of garbage in the corners and along the walls, the dirt collection efficiency itself is also significantly increased. For these and other advantages of a robot vacuum cleaner, you will have to pay about 62 thousand.
The next overall performance in our ranking is the Okami T90 robot with excellent equipment, which includes a separate Pet nozzle for cleaning pet hair and a dust container with a capacity of 1 liter. The robot vacuum cleaner is characterized by increased suction power, the presence of a system of intelligent sensors, an ultraviolet lamp, an advanced navigation system, cartography and a unique virtual wall. The cleaning robot also provides a wet cleaning unit, aromatization function and voice alerts and tips in Russian that inform about the current state of the device. In addition to high technical and functional parameters, the robot vacuum cleaner looks very elegant and attractive. Taking into account numerous advantages, the price for Okami T90 is only about 30 thousand, which is much less than for other robots from this rating. By the way, the Okami T90 model can also be controlled from the phone.
The fourth place in the list of the best robotic vacuum cleaners is occupied by the product of Yujin Robot company called iClebo Omega.
This robot has advanced corner cleaning technology, a streamlined navigation system and high suction power. Otherwise, all the most important functions are present, the case design is stylish, the build quality is at its best. The best option in its price category. Another worthy analogue to the 980th Irobot, only cheaper - in 2018, the price of iClebo Omega is 36-39 thousand.
Panda X5S is a stylish, compact and well-equipped robot vacuum cleaner. It has good suction power, long-acting battery capacity, a navigation system (based on the operation of a gyroscope), a timer, the ability to connect a dual turbo brush and control through a mobile application. There is a wet cleaning function with auto-feeding liquid on a napkin and convenient voice alerts.
The cost of this robot is slightly less than that of the Okami T90, about 26 thousand. But the Panda X5S does not have a movement limiter in the delivery package, this is the only minor flaw. The rest of the model is quite popular, there are many good reviews about it and at the same time, the functionality and characteristics are at a fairly high level.
Xiaomi Mi Roborock Sweep One
Chinese Xiaomi Mi Roborock Sweep One with an average price of 27,500 is certainly one of the best of its kind. Among the advantages of the robot, I would like to separately mention a 5200 mAh lithium-ion battery, an adjustable suspension height, a laser range finder for high-quality orientation, a mapping function, automatic adaptation to different types of flooring, and control from a mobile phone. In addition to highly efficient dry floor cleaning, the Roborock Sweep One is capable of wet cleaning thanks to a separate liquid tank. The device pleases with a good filtration system and the ability to install the main brush.
A significant drawback of this model is the lack of service support and normal warranty service, which is very important when choosing a robot vacuum cleaner.
iRobot Roomba 895
Further in the ranking is again the model from iRobot Roomba 895 (890) for dry floor cleaning. The robot vacuum cleaner has wide functionality, modern intelligent software, programming the work schedule by day of the week and control from a mobile phone. The iRobot Roomba 895 robot is equipped with a double rubber turbo brush, anti-tangling system in wires and various sensors. The device is made in the best traditions of the manufacturer and costs about 30-33 thousand. Only dry cleaning is possible, like all representatives of the Rumba line.
This model is also suitable for dry cleaning of any type of floor covering, including for thorough cleaning of carpets due to its high suction power and long main brush. The robot is distinguished by its design, a unique navigation system for orientation in the room and the technology of building a room map. You can control the work and make settings from a smartphone, but the remote control is also included in the kit for added convenience. The average price is 32,000, which is quite a lot. Among the minuses can be noted meager equipment, a small volume of the garbage container, a high noise level.
Philips FC8822 SmartPro Active
The penultimate place on the list is Philips FC8822 SmartPro Active with a powerful battery and an unusual three-stage surface cleaning system: a wide TriActiv XL nozzle without bristles, two side brushes with long brushes and three suction holes. Philips FC8822 has the ability to adapt to different types of floors and the ability to recognize contaminated areas. The delivery set of the robot vacuum cleaner is advanced, all technical parameters are also at a decent level. The cost of a smart robot vacuum cleaner is about 30 thousand.
GUTREND SMART 300
GUTREND SMART 300 robot completes today's rating. By its appearance, we can immediately say that this is a premium model. Technical characteristics, equipment and functions indicate the same: the vacuum cleaner has improved suction power, technology for selecting the optimal travel route, average noise level, as well as a three-stage filtration system.In addition, the device has 7 different operating modes, including a full wet cleaning (there is a separate tank for 300 ml of liquid). The cost of GUTREND SMART 300 is about 30,000. Significant disadvantages of the device include the lack of a control function through the application on the phone, as well as laser navigation and cartography.
To summarize, I would like to single out two models that not only work efficiently and are able to produce wet cleaning, but also most of all match their price - these are the Okami T90 and Panda X5S. You can also give preference to the model Xiaomi Mi Roborock Sweep One, which is not much inferior to the leaders of our rating, and it costs much cheaper. As for the iRobot Roomba 980 and Neato, they are certainly the undisputed leaders, but they are also quite expensive. Not everyone can afford such robotic vacuum cleaners.
