The 10 Best Vacuum Cleaners - Spring 2022
The best robot vacuum we've tested is the iRobot Roomba S9. This robot vacuum delivers excellent performance on bare floors and does a very good job dealing with debris on low and high-pile carpet, but it might need to make an extra pass to fully clean finer material on carpeted surfaces.

I’m currently trial running several auto-empty vacs for our upstairs which has our 4 bedrooms and all carpet. Currently a few weeks into the Roomba S9+ with empty bin and let me just say… while it does a good job picking up on our low rise carpet, the app and technology feels about 5 years behind the Roborock tech and app. If anyone cares about specifics feel free to ask but I’m constantly surprised how poor the app and tech work. Ghost rooms, connection failures, inaccurate post run results… considering how long iRobot has been in the game I’m just really surprised it’s this far behind.

iRobot Roomba s9+ Review
iRobot's Roomba s9+ is expensive, but its intelligent navigation, super-powerful suction, and ability to empty itself out make it the best robot vacuum we've tested.

Awesome robot with minor issues
I have the 960 and just bought the s9 for upstairs. It does a phenomenal job, really awesome. Almost too awesome; I have to empty it halfway through a job due to the amount of fluff it pulls off the rugs (-0.5 stars). I know that there's an emptying system available for an extra $300 but it's huge a...

'Movie Night' turns them off until the TV turns off, 'Cleaning Time' keeps the lights on for 3+ hours, etc. - Roomba cleans the floor if no motion is detected for several hours, or certain people's devices are gone.

I'm not getting a vacuum without obstacle avoidance so that's out. The Roomba s9+ appears to be the best cleaning robot, but it's 3+ years old now, and also is missing obstacle avoidance, which even budget-priced vacuums have today.

Roomba s9+ Robot Vacuum Review - Just Wow!
I found it was better than any round robot, including the i7, with edge and corner cleaning. Partly because of its shape, it wasn't perfect, but it was a huge improvement over the i7 plus the battery life on the s9 was better in a few ways. The i7 only ran for about 75 minutes on its one power setting with the s9

I currently have a Roomba s9+, but have become more and more interested in the Roborock s7. We have a mixture of hardwood, tile and carpet ( as well as area rugs). I do love the auto-emptying on my Roomba, but I don't love certain things like the constant replacement of the brush extractors and sometimes wonky navigation.
Strong suction, growing pains with the shape.
The 40x suction is no joke, our throw rug looks brand new after this robot cleans it. However, we had a few issues with navigation that we didn't have with our previous i7. This robot has a much lower clearance than the i7, and it couldn't get over the edges of rugs without rolling it up. 20$ of car...
