An Affordable Robot Vacuum for Under 100 Dollars

Can it be true? Can there be a robot vacuum that can be picked up for less than $100? To be honest, we don't think you will find a good robot vacuum for under 100 Dollars. The best we could find is the Pure Clean Robot Vacuum Cleaner.

Pure Clean Robot_Vacuum Cleaner HEPA Filter

The Pyle Pure Clean is an inexpensive robot vacuum that is designed to clean best on hard floors, followed by low pile carpets. This robot vacuum is as basic as it gets. There are no bells and whistles, no mapping technology, and no smartphone connectivity. For the price, it’s pretty good for hardwoods, but if you have lots of carpets, there are better options.

As a budget option the Pure Clean comes out pretty well.

Eufy RoboVac 30C

Punching above its weight, the Eufy RoboVac 30C doesn't look or feel like a budget robot vacuum, coming with app, remote and voice-assistant control. The robot's navigation is fairly dumb, so the vacuum gently bounces around your home, picking up dirt as it goes until the battery is up. As such, cleaning can take a while to complete – but the results are good, making the Eufy RoboVac 30C a fine choice for pet owners looking for automatic cleaning on a budget.

GOOVI Robot Vacuum

The GOOVI Robot Vacuum is able to run through and clean the carpet, which some roomba robot vacuums failed to do. We have set it up and scheduled daily cleaning. We came back from work and to our surprise, this nifty budget robot vacuum ran for well over 90 minutes and back in the charging port.It has a decent cleaning quality and suction. After a 90 minutes run the trash bin was full with dust and we happily cleaned it.

Highly recommend for anyone trying out a cleaning robot for a budget. Worth every penny.

ECOVACS DEEBOT 500

The Ecovacs Deebot 500 is a solid robotic vacuum that cleans well and has an attractive price. This robot offers excellent cleaning performance, but on bare floors only. You can rely on it if you have tile, hardwood, vinyl, linoleum, and maybe low pile carpets. This robot vacuum also boasts excellent runtime, enough to complete the cleaning on just one charge. If you do end up settling on the Deebot 500, though, you’ll find it a reliable household helper.

Roborock S4 Robot Vacuum

The Roborock S4 Robot Vacuum isn’t cheap, but it does offer an awful lot for the price. It’s far more capable than many other similarly priced robot vacuums, with better range, cleaning, and functionality. We’ve tried cheaper robot vacuums in the $200-300 range and for the money, the Roborock S4 is worth every cent.

It has excellent navigation and mapping, powerful suction, and tons of additional features in the well-thought-out app. Whether you hate vacuuming or you want to give the gift of more free time to someone else, the Roborock S4 is a solid buy.

iRobot Roomba 675

The Roomba 675 brings a few features that work well when pets make a mess. It comes with dual multi-surface brushes to help get deeper dirt and hair, and comes with dirt detection sensors that can tell when an area is particularly dirty, so the Roomba can turn up the power. You also get the other smart Roomba features, like intelligent navigation, cleaning schedules, automatic recharging, and so on.

Roborock S5

The Roborock S5 is a great robotic vacuum cleaner that goes toe-to-toe with big names in the market. While the mopping function feels more like an afterthought, the rest of its skills are polished and leaves your floor dust-free. There’s room for minor tweaks in the future, addressed in the S5 Max, but as it stands the Roborock S5 is great to have in any home.

This is the Best of the Best: The Roomba S9+ Robot Vacuum

Robot vacuums have improved a lot in the last few years making the choice of which to buy tougher. The biggest factor to consider is how well your robot vacuum will clean your floor for you. You'll want to look for vacuums that have multiple brushes to clean without being too harsh to damage floors.

If someone were to give you a blank check and told you to purchase a automatic vacuum, this is the robot to get. The iRobot Roomba S9+ costs a lot. For that staggeringly steep sticker price though, this vacuum delivers superb dirt removing cleaning power.

iRobot Roomba s9 (9150) Robot Vacuum Review

On hardwood flooring it picked up an average of 93% of our test sand, the maximum amount in our test group.

This robot vacuum from iRobot removed an average 71% of sand from our midpile carpet. This is the best result that we saw on this specific test. It also cleaned up more pet hair and allergens than any robot in our test group, and the device navigates and maps multiple rooms and floors. The Roomba brand has also updated its mobile app to let you designate certain "zones" to avoid by your bot. This innovative device zipped through the room in a short average time of 25 minutes.

Best of all is the Roomba S9+' CleanBase docking station. It both charges the Roomba's battery and empties its dustbin automatically. Now that's convenient.
