The iRobot Roomba 980, the most recent of a series of top-of-the-line robot vacuum brands vacuums, is a staple for any modern home. This model comes with a HEPA-filter that will assist those who suffer from allergies. It also comes with an extremely powerful battery that can be cleaned for up to two hours before returning to its dock automatically once the bin is full.

Smart mapping is a different feature that allows it to identify areas of your home that require attention and provides a path for cleaning around them. This technology is extremely effective in navigating toys that have been left on the floor or furniture legs sticking out from under things. It also has a camera sensor that will snap the Roomba back to its original position when it begins to drift away from its original location.

iRobot has also added a new set of rollers underneath the bottom of the Roomba that don’t have bristles and, therefore, tend to resist tangles more than previous models. They’re also a bit taller than previous rollers and can better fit under low couches and beds, and they’re designed to allow this model to move more easily across a variety of flooring types.

The Roomba 980 stands out from other models of high-end quality by its new dirt detection feature, which makes use of a camera in order to identify dirt that has been embedded. This is an improvement over the previous version which relied on the use of a sensor-driven pseudorandom cover to bounce around the room and scrub the entire area three times at various angles.

The Roomba 980 performed well in our tests on both carpets and hard floors. Its score on the low pile carpet was impressive, and it also scored a good score on mid pile too. It did a fair job of removing pet hair, but it struggled with very thick and long pet fur that was clumped together.

The Roomba 980 is still one of the best robotic mop And vacuum performing robots on our list despite the minor drawbacks. It’s also less expensive than other top-of the-line models. It’s still packed with a variety of features that we’d expect to see in a top rated robot vacuum-of-the-line model, but it doesn’t have all the fancy app-enabled functions or smart home integration you might find in other top contenders.

The iRobot Roomba is easy to set up and start working immediately. After taking the yellow bin insert and battery pull tab from its undercarriage you simply plug it into the wall socket or one of its Home Base docking stations, click the “Clean button” and let it do its work. It will automatically return to its dock when it runs out of batteries or is full of sand. There are also indicators at the top of the bin that let you know when its bin is empty, or when it requires recharging, or when it loses its Wi-Fi.
