Robot vacuum cleaners are usually round or square in shape. More often than not, they’re nothing like a traditional vacuum cleaner. And only the LG CordZero R9MASTER breaks this rule.

Okami U100 Laser

Rating: 4.7

This detail makes the navigation more adequate. And it also has optical sensors! In short, it’s not surprising that this model intelligently maps the room and then almost never comes up against walls.

Rating: 4.6


This robot vacuum cleaner can boast an unusual shape. Looking from above, it looks like a doughnut, the only thing missing is the small holes inside. This model is intellectual, this is precisely the reason for its high cost. It copes very well with the construction of the map of the room. Also, the robot vacuum cleaner instantly responds to all kinds of obstacles, for which you should thank 35 optical sensors. It can move in different trajectories. You can limit the area to be cleaned by using the included magnetic tape.

The iCLEBO O5 WiFi includes a great number of various components. In this regard, the manufacturer had to introduce a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 5200 mAh. Its full charge lasts for about a couple of hours of autonomous work. And that’s only if you don’t connect the power brush that comes with it.

It is nice that this model has received a quality three-stage fine filter. No complaints about the motor either – the noise level is barely 44 dB. Dust and garbage are collected in the usual container, the volume of which is 0.6 liters.

Samsung VR20M7070

Rating: 4.5


South Korean company Samsung produces a huge amount of home appliances. Including vacuum cleaners in its range. And not only the traditional ones. You can easily buy the Samsung VR20M7070, a real robot vacuum cleaner that can be programmed to clean on certain days of the week. It is done with the help of a smartphone. You can also use a complete remote control, but it is only for activating basic functions. There are also buttons on the top panel of the device itself. Of course, there is even a display!

This model was created for the most regular cleaning. This is not the case when a robot vacuum cleaner can go on its mission only once a week. The fact that it cannot pick up large quantities of dust. First of all, there is not enough power for this. Secondly, the container volume of 0.3 liters is simply not capable of holding a large garbage. Thirdly, the vacuum cleaner can not work for a long time. The lithium-ion battery installed here is enough for only one hour of moving around the apartment. However, do not worry too much about this. The fact that the charging lasts only an hour and a half, after which the robot vacuum cleaner can go back to battle. The only pity is that you have to put it on the charging station manually. By itself this instance can not find it.

Like many other high-priced robot vacuums, the Samsung VR20M7070 has a turbo brush. Its main purpose – the successful collection of small debris and dust near the baseboards.

Otherwise, it is a typical robot vacuum cleaner, capable of building a map of the room. It has a large number of optical sensors. There are soft bumpers around its circumference. Well, the built-in Wi-Fi module allows you to connect the device to your home network. It is interesting that the application “Yandex” is able to recognize this model, as a result there is an opportunity to control it with the help of “Alice”.

It should be recognized that this is not the most intelligent robot vacuum cleaner. Buyers note that it often goes over the same area twice, and sometimes three times. Also it has problems with the rooms, which shape is different from rectangular. Well, the low power does not allow the vacuum cleaner to work properly with the carpet.


  • A large number of optical sensors;
  • There is an electric brush for cleaning near the baseboards;
  • Implemented a fast charging;
  • It is possible to control from a smartphone;
  • It comes with a remote control;
  • Supported by the voice assistant “Alice”.


  • Low power;
  • A tiny container for collecting dust;
  • There are often problems with navigation;
  • High cost;
  • The noise level can reach 77 dB.

Roborock S6/T6

Rating: 4.4

Roborock S6/T6

This robot vacuum cleaner is available in two colors. It is also distinguished by the possibility of wet cleaning. However, you should not hope for a luxurious result, because this mode uses only disposable wipes and not a full-fledged container with liquid or detergent. As for the usual cleaning, the dust and garbage are sucked into a container with a capacity of 0.16 liters. This means that its emptying will be needed quite often.

Inside this device there is not a particularly powerful engine. However, it is necessary to admit that it has turned out too noisy. Measurements show that the noise level can reach 67 dB. Only full-featured vacuum cleaners are noisier. But they have much more suction power!

The autonomous work of this device is provided by the lithium-ion battery with 5200 mAh capacity. Surprisingly, a full charge lasts up to 150 minutes of moving around the apartment! And it is while using here a rather large number of optical sensors! The energy is spent and electronic “brain” which builds the map of the room. It is pleased that the device independently returns to the charging station. Well, a long charge is not such a problem.

Included with the robot vacuum cleaner you get a power brush. Its use is relevant if there is too much dust and debris in the room. Also, the product has a soft bumper, thanks to which the vacuum cleaner does not damage itself when it collides with an obstacle.

This model has a wireless Wi-Fi module. It allows to control the device with one’s smartphone by installing a special app on it. Basically, the user is required to perform simple actions – to select the days of the week in which the vacuum cleaner will perform cleaning, as well as selecting a specific mode of operation.


  • It is possible to control from a smartphone;
  • Available wet cleaning;
  • There is a fine filter;
  • Long autonomous work;
  • The device automatically returns to the charging station;
  • It has an electric brush.


  • The vacuum cleaner turned out to be quite noisy;
  • High cost;
  • Tiny container for collecting dust;
  • Wet cleaning may not meet the expectations.

iCLEBO Omega

Rating: 4.3


Another very advanced robot vacuum cleaner. Its top panel has not only buttons, but also a display. He alone allows you to understand that the device has a large number of modes – at the hint of the many icons. It should be noted that this is a rare case, when a robot vacuum cleaner is available in three colors.

This model offers not only dry but also wet cleaning. In the second case, a microfiber cloth is used. The result is not perfect, but close to that. Only a full-fledged washing vacuum cleaner copes with its task better.

The iCLEBO Omega has a quality fine filter with five stages. Another robot vacuum cleaner has 35 optical sensors. With their help the device builds a map of the room, and then begins to move around the room. The user can prevent the cleaner from going to dangerous places, such as stairs. To do this, you only need to fence this place with a magnetic strip, which is present in the kit. Or bought separately – reviews say that now more and more often iCLEBO Omega is sold without such an important accessory.

Standalone work robot vacuum cleaner provides lithium-ion battery, the capacity of which reaches 4400 mAh. It is quite sufficient for cleaning for 80 minutes. The device then stands up on its own to the charging station, after which its battery is filled with energy for about three hours. Sometimes the robot vacuum cleaner still does not find the charging station, but this happens relatively rarely.

This model comes with a power brush. It allows you to slightly improve the quality of cleaning. In the box with the device you will find a remote control. Unfortunately, this is the only way to control the vacuum cleaner. If you want to use your smartphone, you will need a slightly more expensive model from the same manufacturer, which was discussed above. Here the manufacturer decided to save money by not introducing the Wi-Fi module, thereby reducing the price tag to 37 thousand rubles. RUB.


  • Several housing colors to choose from;
  • Wet mopping is available;
  • You can connect an electric brush;
  • A huge number of optical sensors;
  • You can limit the cleaning area with a magnetic strip;
  • Automatic installation on the charger;
  • Comes with a remote control.


  • A very high cost;
  • It does not support control from a smartphone;
  • Quite a high noise level;
  • When you restart it forgets the route taken.

iRobot Roomba e5

Rating: 4.3

iRobot Roomba e5

You want to buy a robot vacuum cleaner with the construction of the map room for very little money? Alas, there is no way to do it. This function is expensive to implement. In this regard, the cheapest of the decent robot vacuum cleaners of this plan is estimated at 30 thousand. rubles. This cost has iRobot Roomba e5. It’s nice that in many ways it is more functional than the models discussed above. For example, it has a Wi-Fi module, so you can control it from your smartphone. Also the developers of “smart homes” Amazon Alexa and Google Home declared support for this device.

This model is designed only for dry cleaning. Inside, there is room for a 0.6-liter bin. There is also a fine filter, so nothing will fly into the air. The motor used here is powered by an 1800 mAh lithium-ion battery. A full charge is enough for an hour and a half of cleaning.

This model is spatially navigated by optical sensors. You can tell it to vacuum your whole apartment. Also available as a virtual wall limitation. Cleaning can be done with the electric brush, which is included.

If we talk about the disadvantages, you can complain about the application, which turned out very crude – it is clear that the manufacturer is obliged to finalize it in the future. Also embarrassing is the bumper, made of plastic – it quickly scratches and gets covered with dust. Well, we have already mentioned about not particularly long battery life.


  • In the complete set there is an electric brush;
  • A capacious container for dust;
  • Compatible with voice assistants;
  • A large number of optical sensors;
  • Automatic installation on the charging station.


  • Not very long cleaning from a full charge;
  • The bumper is made of plastic.
