10. Dibea DT966
This other Dibea is a super quiet robot vacuum-mop combo that is equipped with a brushless Nidec motor and can climb up to 15 mm if it encounters such a threshold. Thanks to its unique D-shaped design, it can get close to walls and clean around them easily. Furthermore, the DT966 sports a tempered glass cover that is anti-scratch, and its height is only 3″, so it can go under a lot of furniture.
You can expect the DT966 to pick up plenty of dirt, crumbs, and pet fur. Replace the dustbin with the water tank to turn this bad boy into a robot mop!
Here are some other features:
- Programmable scheduling
- Sensors for anti-collision
- Avoids height drops
More about the suction: the dual side-brushes can reach what is in corners and edges. Then, a V-shaped roller brush helps gather any dust. To top things off, the suction comes into effect.
9. Dibea D500Pro
This is a robot vacuum-mop combo too. When the battery is low, the D500Pro retreats to the base on its own to charge. Otherwise, it is designed for low-pile carpets and hard floors, and it is quite good with pet hair. Furthermore, its low profile makes it go under furniture with ease. Needless to say, its unique D-shape allows it into places round robots cannot go to easily.
There are six cleaning modes:
Auto is the default mode, max is for maximal suction, edge is for corners and walls, mopping is quite obvious from its name, and spot is to clean a certain area. Also, there are three suction levels too.
In any mode, the D500Pro should be able to cross thresholds no taller than 15 mm in height, thanks to its large wheels. It tries to be quiet at a maximum of 60 decibels.
Anti-collision and anti-fall sensors prevent the D500Pro from colliding into things as well as falling from heights. Additionally, the HEPA filter is washable. Also, you can schedule to the D500Pro to operate at a certain time that suits your schedule.
8. HOBOT LEGEE-688
The 688 is a robot vacuum-mop combo. It has a useful remote, but if you work the HOBOT LEGEE app, you can control the 688 like so:
- Dynamic control
- Real-time map
You can also choose one of the seven Talent Clean modes:
- Standard: for general usage
- Strong: for a deep clean
- ECO: to operate quietly while saving energy
- Kitchen: to clean stains, spills, and splashes
- Dry: for hardwood floors
- Pet: to clean pawprints and hair
- Polish: for brightness and shining
ِAs for the other features:
- The real-time map shows the 688 while it cleans.
- The cleaning diary lets you check the last 10 cleaning missions, like the cleaned area and duration.
- The schedule queue is a weekly scheduler to preschedule a cleaning once a day.
- Smart navigation technology is brought to effect through three long lasers that are upfront.
- Encoder, gyroscope, and E-compass technologies are present as well.
Regarding the three cleaning routes:
- Zigzag cleaning
- Wall-follow cleaning
*The 688 divides an area into 4.4 × 4.4 m², zigzags around, and finishes up with wall-follow cleaning.
The 688 utilizes the 4-in-1 FastBrush, and it also features a tangle-free design. Its D-shape allows it to clean corners with ease, thanks to the detachable side brush too.
The carved deflector is supposed to allow the entry of larger debris like beans, but the 688 is more specialized for dust and lighter debris like coffee grounds and flour.
As for the mop, its speed is 600-800 times per minute, and it releases enough water to clean without residue, thanks to the microfiber mopping cloth that is absorbent.
Even more features:
- The filter has two layers.
- There is a high-efficiency Nidec brushless DC motor and metal fan for low noise and good durability.
- There are two cliff lasers under the front edge to avoid falling from stairs and so on.
- The 688 gives maintenance reminders.
- The 688 redocks by itself, thanks to 4M IR detection.
- The caterpillar-belt design prevents slippage.
7. Dreame W10
The Dreame Bot W10 Self-Cleaning Robot Vacuum and Mop has an auto-drying system. It comes with two rotating mop pads, and it tackles dirt and stains simultaneously. More specifically, 10 Newtons of pressure are applied to pads that spin 180 times a minute for the most part!
When its pads get dirty, the W10 automatically redocks so that the pads are sprayed with water and then spin quickly against little grooves to get rid of the dirt and muck. At the same time, there is a nozzle at the dock’s bottom that deposits dirty water into a waste-water tank to prevent contamination. Additionally, the W10 redocks to recharge when the battery is low to then continue from where it left off.
When the mopping cycle is finished, and when the W10 has returned to the base for the last time, the pads are rinsed and dried using hot air to avoid bacterial growth and mildew.
The W10 has two water tanks: one is for clean water while the other is for dirty water, so you do not need to frequently refill or dump. In fact, the W10 can clean 300 square meters by itself before needing another charge again! We really like the size of the dirty water tank.
Because of its D-shape, which is probably why you are here, the W10 can hug walls tightly, and side brushes capture debris from edges. Long gone are the days of supplementing your robot vacuum with a manual old-school vacuum for those tough edges! Plus, the oversized roller covers more real estate. To cap things off, the powerful suction power removes dust and dirt effectively.
The W10 mostly updates its surroundings’ map a dozen times faster than before, and that is because of its navigation system that is a mixture of LDS (laser direct sensor), LiDAR (light detection and ranging), and SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping). The bot can navigate its perimeter even in the dark! Furthermore, systematic cleaning paths are also created, storing up to three floorplans max.
Once the W10 has drawn a floorplan of your home, you can then divide the home into rooms to set custom cleaning through the app instead of cleaning your whole home every time. The app connects easily.
Because of ultrasonic carpet detection, the W10 identifies a carpet in advance, plans a route according to the current mode, and automatically boosts suction to max power when there is a carpet. In other modes, the W10 detours around carpets so they are not wetted. Who wants a wet carpet, correct?
Moving on, 1.8 cm thresholds can be surpassed. Needless to say, this state-of-the-art bot has an anti-drop function too, so it avoids falling off heights like stair sets.
About the modes, there are three you can select from the app:
Aside from the app, you can also use Amazon Alexa to voice control the W10.
6. Narwal T10
First off, we are glad to inform you that you can click here for a $50 discount if you order straight from the Narwal website!
Without further ado, the T10 is a robot vacuum-mop hybrid that features triangular mop pads that rotate three times a second, so the RPM is 180. They cover 30% more surface area to increase cleaning efficiency, especially when it comes to corners. The large water tanks suffice for a 3,000 square-foot house.
When the mops are dirty, the T10 detects that automatically and periodically, so it returns to the base to clean them and resume mopping, which prevents germs and bacteria.
As for the vacuum, it has dual-side brushes that sweep hair, dirt, and debris with the assistance of a HEPA 10 filter that traps dust, allergens, and so on. To reduce the odds of hair entanglement, the brush is the no-roll type.
Thanks to LiDAR as well as LSD laser mapping algorithms and SLAM, the Narwal T10 gets lost less frequently than your average-Joe robot vacuum.
With one click, you can make the bot vacuum, mop, build a map, and return to the base. There is a Narwal app too, and you can use a remote if you wish.
More about the app, you can:
- Select a cleaning plan.
- Adjust the suction levels.
- Adjust the mop moisture levels.
- Receive firmware updates.
- Get automatic algorithm updates.
Additional features include:
- Child lock feature
- No-go areas
- Cleaning status and cleaning report
- Battery level
To wrap up, it is quite convenient that the T10 switches between vacuuming and mopping automatically depending on what you install on it. Second, it is quite impressive that this is a combo, yet it mops so well as if it is an exclusive mop. It applies a great deal of pressure to scrub the most stubborn stains off one’s floor. It mops so smartly that it starts a mopping session far away from the dock and then makes its way to the dock to reduce contamination chances.
As for vacuuming, the side brushes help a lot when edge cleaning. By the way, the T10 also has spot cleaning, so you can clean a specific area.
Mapping is excellent, and the T10 can maneuver its way under furniture. If anything, set a no-go zone!
Regarding battery life, the T10’s battery is so durable that it will unlikely have to return to base during a cycle. Instead, it usually does a whole cycle without needing to recharge. There are two suction levels to choose from: normal and power.
Finally, it is convenient that you can choose to operate the T10 without the app, so you can use the remote or press on the bot itself.
5. Eureka Groove
While not technically a D-shaped robot vacuum, the Groove is also not round-shaped like most robot vacuums, so it should give you some of the perks of a classic D-shaped robot vacuum.
That said, this NER300 robot vacuum that looks like an old cassette player should not deceive you with its funky look. With 2,000 Pa of suction power, it can effectively pick up fur, dust, dirt, and also debris. Its anti-scratch brush roll protects hard floors without compromising the robot vacuum’s ability to clean surfaces like carpets and rugs. You can expect the bot to pick up about a whopping dozen grams of dirt per cycle!
The NER300’s slim design allows it under furniture, thanks to its GrooveGear wheels. Those wheels help it move from hard floors to carpets as well as transition between rooms.
Although not necessarily advertised as such, the NER300 is quite good at edge cleaning, and by the way, if you are concerned about the hassle of emptying a dustbin, the NER300 sports an easy-empty dust cup.
With four ways to control this robot vacuum, the NER300 is quite the convenient innovation:
- App control
- Remote control
- Voice commands
- Onboard button
With the app, you can schedule and control the robot vacuum even if you are out and about. Admittedly, it is quite minimal in function, but it gets the job done, and you can also use Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa for voice control.
4. Neato D8
There are not many D-shaped robot vacuums, so we apologize in advance that the next three robot vacuums are all by Neato…
Moving on, the D8 is a robot vacuum that combines a big brush with a big 0.7 liter dustbin. The brush is of the spiral combo type that is up to 70% larger than the average counterpart, and it is easy to clean. The dustbin can impressively collect a sizeable amount of dirt, dust, and dander. It is impressive how much the dustbin can collect without needing replacement mid-cleaning. Also, the high-performance E11 filter can capture up to 99% of allergens.
With this vacuum, you can vacuum hardwood, carpet, or tiles. On a single charge, it can cover up to 750 square feet, which is ideal for small-to-medium sized homes. To replenish the battery, the D8 goes to the charging dock by itself and then resumes its mission that can last up to a whopping 100 minutes.
The D8 uses LaserSmart navigation to make precise movements and even go under furniture if needed. It also packs LiDAR technology, much like self-driving cars, and that technology involves mapping. You do not have to move your furniture around for the D8 to operate with smoothness. Also, there are drop sensors to avoid the D8 falling off heights, and yes, those sensors actually work!
Again, the D8 sports an uncommon but effective D-shape that can clean square edges whenever needed, but in case an area is too tough to clean, you can hop right into turbo mode for a deep and thorough cleaning through increased suction and a faster brush. As for eco mode, it is for hard surfaces and conserves battery to cover more surface area while running quietly.
Two more things: the D8 comes with a state-of-the-art app called MyNeato, which is a Bluetooth-compatible app that can let you schedule cleaning and create virtual no-go zones, which the D8 avoids intelligently. Also, the info button produces voice responses.
3. Neato D9
The D9 is a feature-heavy robot vacuum, with an ultra-performance filter that captures up to 99.5% of fine dust particles and allergens as small as 10 microns. It has a pleated design, which allows for a greater filtering surface area without needing to sacrifice suction power.
The D9 has a helix multi-surface brush with a unique 140-degree design to reduce brush noise by half on hard surfaces. The brush is bigger than round robots’, and it is for hardwood, tiles, and carpets. In fact, this bot is for dust and debris on all kinds of surface types.
You can expect the D9 to clean up to 1,600 square feet on a single charge, which is good for medium-to-large homes, and whenever about to run out of battery, the D9 redocks to recharge.
2. Neato D10
The D10 packs many features, with one of them being a HEPA filter that can capture up to 99.97% of allergens and dust as small as 0.3 microns. Returning is the pleated design to allow for greater filtration surface area without sacrificing suction efficiency.
The D10 has a 140-degree design that reduces brush noise while operating on hard surfaces, but regardless, the bot is for debris and dust pickup on various surfaces. The helix multi-surface brush can tackle hardwood, carpet, and tiles, and it is coupled with a large dustbin that holds more dirt and dander than usual. There are four cleaning modes as well.
In one go, you can expect the D10 to clean up to 2,700 square feet! It also packs SLAM and LiDAR. Although this bot can run for a very long time, you can extend that time even more by utilizing eco mode. Areas that need more intense cleaning can be cleaned using turbo mode. There is a max mode as well. If the battery is about to run out, the D10 goes back to the dock to recharge.
Using the app, you can divide your place into zones and set no-go zones as well. Thanks to the Bluetooth-compatible MyNeato app, you can also do things such as clean on demand and schedule with routines.
1. iRobot Roomba s9+
No top robot-vacuum list is complete without a Roomba, so meet the s9+, a goliath which comes with:
- Clean Base automatic dirt disposal
- Two dirt-disposal bags
- Extra high-efficiency filter
- Extra corner brush
The high-efficiency filter captures 99% of dog and cat dander allergens, yet the star feature of this robot vacuum is definitely the Clean Base automatic dirt disposal, which allows the s9+ to empty itself for up to a couple of months. It sports a three-stage cleaning system which lifts, loosens, and eliminates pet hair and debris in carpets. Power-boost technology allows the s9+ to increase suction whenever needed.
Clean Base eliminates the dust and dirt that often accompany emptying bins of vacuums. Up to 30 bins are automatically emptied into the base that also serves as the charging dock of this Roomba. Also featured is PerfectEdge technology that utilizes advanced sensors, and there is a special corner-brush to clean alongside edges. The corner performance is quite good!
The dual rubber-brushes do not get tangled with pet hair. The brushes are closer to the front than most other robot vacuums, providing unique utility. This is not a “me too” product, especially adding that the D-shape allows the s9+ to maneuver itself to clean the trickiest spots. The s9+ works great on hardwood, and it works well on carpets too.
vSLAM navigation allows the s9+ to learn the layout of a residence to clean it in neat and efficient rows. This sophisticated navigation system captures over 230,400 data points every second. In a few cycles, the s9+ should know its way around your living space, and it almost never gets stuck.
Imprint smart mapping technology allows the s9+ to distinguish between your living room and the kitchen, so you can decide where it cleans as well as when, and you can also set no-go zones.
The smart mapping feature enables the s9+ to identify the best way to clean based on the layout of every room, furniture placement, and so on. After you label every room, the smart map allows you to direct the s9+ to clean a specific room or multiple rooms using the app.
Speaking of which, the iRobot Home app provides customizable routines and maps. You also get personalized cleaning suggestions, which is a reason why this app is one of the best of its kind. If you area’s pollen count is unusually high or it is pet-shedding season, an extra cleaning is suggested!
You can also set up and use Alexa easily to voice-control the s9+. So, you can say something along the lines of, “Alexa, tell Roomba to clean under the kitchen table.”
If low on battery, the s9+ charges itself and then continues its trek. On the lowest setting, you can expect the s9+ to operate for a couple of hours. At the highest setting, you can expect 45 minutes of operation. Even the highest setting does not make the s9+ that loud, so it is quite moderate-sounding.
For your information, you may be glad to know that the s9+ can team up with the Braava jet m6 robot mop to vacuum and mop in sequence!
