This vacuum robot brands ranking reflects users overall satisfaction. We have averaged the scores for different robots made by the same brand. Interestingly, ranking brands based on their best robotic vacuum leads to similar results. This is no surprise. Brands often rely on the same robotic base for a whole product line. The common base is extended with different features, both hardware (e.g. dual brush) and software (e.g. mobile app).
iRobot is the maker of the world famous Roomba. It pioneered the vacuum robot market and remain a solid leader. Its secret? Durable build, ease of use, and quality features. This is why all the 7 Roombas we have reviewed achive very good scores. They are rated between 4 and 4.4 out of 5 stars.
2. Neato Robotics
