A robot vacuum can be a surprisingly helpful assistant if you struggle with keeping the house clean. The Roomba 981, a variant of our upgraded robot vacuum pick, is down to $400 again. The 981 provides greater suction power for better cleaning and a slightly extended battery life per charge, similar in functionality to the 960. It methodically cleans large spaces and does a great job dealing with pet hair, being reliable, and offering excellent carpet-cleaning performance with its increased power.
It connects to your Wi-Fi and cleverly maps out your house with built-in cameras and a navigation system to make sure no space is left untouched. Although some advanced features such as invisible no-go lines are lacking, we are confident in this slightly older selection. This is a great deal and worth picking up while still available if you’re looking for a bit of extra power for your floor and carpet.
