Quick Verdict

Our in-depth comparison has shown that Neato is better for smaller households. It handles short pet hair great but may struggle with larger accumulations. Neato vacuums are affordable and simple, offering all the necessary features but nothing jaw-dropping or over the top. High-end Roomba models are better suited to big houses, owners of more than one pet, or those willing to use a robot vacuum together with a robot mop.

Product Overview

Let’s take a detailed look at four vacuum models from each brand before going into an in-depth comparison.

In the past, Neato tended to only improve minor points on previous models. With the D8, however, Neato offers more significant hardware and software advancements. For example, this model’s filter has been upgraded and now traps up to 99% of allergens. In terms of figures, the vacuum’s run time has decreased from 120 to 100 minutes, but in practice, it remains impressive. Due to efficient battery utilization and high speed, the D8 can clean up to 750 square feet in one go. It also utilizes drop sensors now, so stairs are no longer an issue. Last but not least, the D8 features an info button with voice responses.

Just like the predecessor models D4 and D6, Neato D7 utilizes LaserSmart technology and offers advanced control via the mobile app. It memorizes up to three-floor plans, navigates in the dark, and adapts to various surfaces. You can set keep-out zones and schedule cleanings to your preference. The D7 cleans even the most challenging spots thoroughly using the Turbo Mode. The vacuum runs for up to 120 minutes, then automatically docks to recharge and resumes from the same spot. With the Quick Boost technology, it calculates exactly how much time is required to finish the daily job.

What’s new? The D7 now supports zone cleaning. You can use voice control to request that the vacuum clean a specific area, for instance, under the kitchen counter rather than cleaning the whole home. In the D6, it was only possible via the mobile app.

It easily adapts the brush position to different surfaces and can memorize multiple floor plans. Furthermore, you can set custom keep-out zones and schedules via the native mobile app. That’s especially handy if you have kids or pets. Neato D6 also leaves no traces of pet fur, thanks to the Turbo Mode and a big brush.

While all the above-mentioned features are impressive, they’re also present in Neato’s base model, the D4. So, what has been improved? Well, the D6 can run up to 120 minutes without charging –nearly twice as long as its predecessor. Plus, it offers Quick Boost charging technology that calculates exactly how much power is required to finish the daily cleaning. Instead of charging fully each time, it automatically returns to base when needed, has a quick boost, and resumes at the same spot.

Neato D4 is the company’s base model. Although it’s the most affordable product from Neato Robotics, this vacuum offers features comparable to the high-end products of other brands. Neato D4 utilizes advanced lasers to detect and automatically adapt to any surface, be it wood, carpet, or tile. It navigates around your house seamlessly, even in the dark. The D4 is perfect for pet owners, as it features an ultra-big brush and Turbo Mode that leaves no traces of hair and negotiates challenging spots with ease.

What’s more, with the help of a native mobile app, you can set custom keep-out zones and schedule cleanings. Apart from the app, the vacuum can be controlled using Apple Watch, Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and more options.

Roomba s9 is the latest and most advanced iRobot product. Smart mapping technology and voice assistant support enable you to control which areas the vacuum cleans without lifting a finger. With an updated, user-friendly mobile app, you can select specific areas to clean. For instance, Roomba s9 can clean up an accidental mess under the kitchen table before you even finish your breakfast.

Not only has the software improved, Roomba s9 features 30 times stronger suction lift than the Roomba base series. PerfectEdge technology and innovative brushes provide perfect cleaning, even in the most challenging corners. This vacuum features wider dual multi-surface rubber brushes that don’t get tangled with hair. Finally, as opposed to previous models with an optional automatic emptying base, Roomba s9 comes in a set with Clean Base by default. This feature enables you to dispose of dirt only once in two months on average. That’s what we call a truly hassle-free cleaning.

Roomba s9

Pros:

  • Improved rubber brushes
  • Thorough cleaning in corners
  • Better floor mapping
  • Comes with automatically emptying station
  • Custom no-go zones
  • 120-minute run time

Cons:

  • Noisy

iRobot has significantly improved the suction power in Roomba i7 compared to its predecessors Roomba 694 and i3. Just like other brand’s vacuums, it analyzes your habits and adapts to them, suggesting customized schedules. The schedules and other settings can later be adjusted via the iRobot mobile app. Furthermore, the vacuum supports Google and Alexa so that you can control it from any spot in your house. By connecting the vacuum with iRobot’s Braava Jet robot mop, you can achieve a spotlessly clean house. When a recharge is needed, Roomba i7 docks automatically and later resumes at the same place it stopped. The best thing is, rather than recharging fully, it only takes the energy needed to complete the pending cleaning session.

In terms of innovative features not present in previous Roomba models, the i7 chooses the best cleaning patterns with the help of iAdapt mapping technology. It vacuums only the chosen areas selected via the app. Roomba i7 learns ten-floor plans, thus is suitable for the largest houses. Finally, you can select custom no-go areas to prevent vacuum from cleaning certain spaces. That’s especially useful if you have kids who tend to leave small items on the floor.

Roomba i7

Pros:

  • Custom no-go zones
  • Google and Alexa control
  • Vacuuming by specified areas
  • Great for large houses with multiple floors
  • Compatible with robot mop

Cons:

  • Relatively small dustbin capacity
  • Short battery lifetime

Cost at time of review: The vacuum’s full price is $599.99. On promotion, it’s priced at $449.99. A set of the vacuum and compatible automatically emptying base is currently available at $649.99, and with additional robot mop at $899.98.

The Roomba i3 offers far more powerful suction compared to the Roomba 694. It automatically selects the required brush height for different surfaces. Thus, you don’t have to control the vacuum manually to clean your carpets. Rubberized dual brushes are designed to fight against pet dander allergens and to avoid tangling. Thanks to smart navigation technology, Roomba i3 won’t get stuck, either. It simply detects whether it can or can’t reach a certain area.

The vacuum analyzes your habits to issue custom cleaning schedules and suggest additional recommendations. The iRobot mobile app enables you to adjust all the settings to your personal preference. Additionally, you can control the vacuum from a distance using Google or Alexa voice assistants. When a recharge is required, Roomba i3 automatically returns to the charging station. Then, it resumes at the same spot to complete the daily clean. Last but not least, the vacuum can be linked with robot mop to ensure brilliant results.

Roomba i3

Pros:

  • Connects with a Braava Jet mop
  • Voice assistant control
  • Automatically returns to charging station and resumes from the same spot
  • Efficiently fights pet allergens

Roomba 694 is an entry-level iRobot product. However, it has all the essential features of a proper robot vacuum. This vacuum detects and gets rid of dirt, spending more time to thoroughly clean the messiest spots. It easily handles various surfaces, automatically adapting the brush height to hard and soft floors. Roomba 694 memorizes all obstacles on the floor to avoid them. Google and Alexa voice assistant support help you to control the vacuum without lifting a finger.

One of the most useful Roomba 694 features is the custom cleaning schedule created personally for you. The vacuum analyses your habits and may even suggest additional sessions to improve the cleanliness of your house. The maximum run time is 90 minutes. Afterward, the vacuum returns to the charging station on its own.

Step by Step Feature Comparison

Now that you know the offerings from both iRobot and Neato, it’s time to compare them in detail. Read on for a step-by-step feature comparison.

Battery Lifetime: Neato vs. Roomba

 
 
Please change percentage here -> 90
 
 
Please change percentage here -> 70

Winner: Neato, clearly.

Neato’s base model, D4, only runs for 75 minutes before returning to the charging station. However, the next two products in the line, the D6 and D7, can run up to 120 minutes on a single charge. Finally, although the D8 has a decreased run time of 100 minutes, it utilizes its battery efficiently, cleaning up to 750 square feet in one go.

The Roomba s9 can easily compete with any Neato’s model, offering a run time of 120 minutes. Unfortunately, the older models don’t perform as well. While Roomba 694 can work up to 90 minutes on a single charge, the i3 and i7 only run for 75 minutes.

Charging: Neato vs. Roomba

 
 
Please change percentage here -> 90
 
 
Please change percentage here -> 85

 

Winner: Neato, though Roomba runs them close. The difference in charging times is insignificant. Smart charging time calculation is available in three Neato models and two Roombas. All the vacuums return to the charging station automatically. But even the base Neato D4 resumes from the same spot, while Roombas couldn’t do it up until the i7.

Neato’s D6, D7, and D8 vacuums take 150 minutes to charge fully. The D4 charges in 100 minutes, if it also runs for only 75. All the models automatically return to the charging station when required and resume cleaning from the same spot they stopped. All Neato vacuums apart from the D4 feature Quick Boost technology. They calculate how much power is needed to complete the daily cleaning instead of charging fully each time.

Charging for Roomba vacuums is about two hours for all models, regardless of the run time. While all Roombas automatically return to the station when required, only the i7 and s9 vacuums resume on the same spot after charging. The smart recharge time calculation is available is Roomba i7 and s9.

Charging Neato vs Roomba

Dustbin Capacity: Neato vs. Roomba

 
 
Please change percentage here -> 80
 
 
Please change percentage here -> 80

Winner: It’s a tie. While Neato has a more capacious dustbin by default, modern Roombas are compatible with a self-emptying base. But this raises the product price, so we can’t give all the points to Roomba.

The dustbin capacity of Roombas ranges from 350 to 500 milliliters. While this isn’t much, the newer Roomba models are compatible with a self-emptying base. It allows you to get rid of debris once in two months on average. The base comes in a set with Roomba s9 but has to be purchased separately for the Roomba i-series. The only drawback is that the self-emptying station significantly increases the final price.

Neato doesn’t manufacture a self-emptying station. However, all their vacuums have a capacious dustbin of 700 milliliters that has to be emptied far less frequently than a Roomba.

Navigation, Smart Mapping, and Scheduling: Neato vs. Roomba

 
 
Please change percentage here -> 80
 
 
Please change percentage here -> 98

 

Winner: Roomba. Many features are similar in the vacuums of the two brands, and Neato utilizes a more organized cleaning pattern. But Roomba links with a robot mop, memorizes more floor plans, and features an innovative brush.

​​​​All Neato vacuums, including the base model D4, can detect and adapt to different surfaces. Furthermore, the sensors can work equally well during the day and night. Neato’s vacuums move in an organized linear pattern and detect stairs unmistakably. Although the base model doesn’t include side brushes, the D-shaped vacuum design allows it to easily reach corners. With the help of a native mobile app, you can select custom zones to clean, as well as keep out zones. Every Neato vacuum memorizes up to three-floor plans.

Just like Neato, Roomba vacuums detect and automatically adapt to various surfaces, be it hard floors or carpets. Roombas do so with the help of a floating brush, iRobot’s innovation. Roomba also offers custom keep-out zones and spot cleaning. The main difference here is the cleaning map. As opposed to Neato’s linear pattern, a Roomba vacuums in a more random sequence, prioritizing certain areas. While it still cleans the house in full, it may take more time due to such an unorganized pattern.

One advantage of Roomba here is that it’s compatible with iRobot’s robot mop, Braava Jet. These products clean house in a perfect sequence. Neato doesn’t produce robot mops at all. Another point in favor of Roomba is that it can memorize ten-floor plans compared to Neato’s three.

Navigation, Smart Mapping, and Scheduling Neato vs Roomba

Control Options: Neato vs. Roomba

 
 
Please change percentage here -> 100

Winner: Although the difference is insignificant here, an extra point still goes towards Neato.

All Roombas support Google and Alexa voice assistant or mobile app control. Apart from Google and Alexa voice assistants and a mobile app, Neato vacuums can be controlled using Apple Watch.

 

Price/Value: Neato vs. Roomba

 
 
Please change percentage here -> 100
 
 
Please change percentage here -> 100

Winner: It’s a tie. Both brands offer products of great value, and the price difference between the same range models is justified.

Neato’s base model is priced noticeably higher than iRobot’s, $429.99 as opposed to $299.99. However, it also offers more advanced features such as custom keep-out zones and a higher-capacity dustbin. Mid-range models differ significantly in terms of pricing. iRobot’s high-end vacuum, the s9, costs 1,099.99, while Neato D8 only $699.99. Yet again, the difference can be explained by the features. Roomba s9 comes in a set with a self-emptying base, which makes the cleaning process truly hassle-free. Neato D8 doesn’t offer as many improvements compared to previous models to rightfully surpass the $1,000 mark.

Based on the feature comparison, Neato is a clear winner. Two points are worth mentioning, though. Firstly, the score difference in percentages is insignificant. Secondly, Roomba wins in crucial robot vacuum departments – navigation and scheduling. The dustbin capacity and value are also important, and here, Roomba is just as good as Neato.

Final Scores Table

Final Verdict

Our feature comparison shows that Neato receives the olive branch. However, we have to admit that both products are worth your attention. The specific layout of your house and the features you find the most important should have more impact on your choice than rough figures.

Overall, Neato is the much more affordable option. These vacuums offer a significantly longer run time on a single charge. Although they can’t be used with a self-emptying base, Neato’s default dustbin capacity is impressive. The controls are another important feature. Some don’t like voice control due to mistakenly recognized commands. Furthermore, you need to be close to the vacuum to use this control option. Thankfully, Neato lets you send commands via the Apple Watch that’s always on your wrist.

Naturally, Neato isn’t perfect, and Roomba is better suited for certain types of users. While Neato is great for households with kids and pets due to advanced HEPA filters and custom keep-out zone support, it loses to Roombas in this department. iRobot’s innovative floating brushes with non-tangling bristles ensure that the vacuum won’t get stuck even if you own a long-haired, fluffy dog. The rubber rollers are great at avoiding small objects left on the floor, such as Lego bricks. Finally, Roomba memorizes more floor plans than any Neato could.

The verdict? Neato is better for smaller, pet-free households. It’s affordable and simple, offering all the necessary features but nothing over the top. High-end Roomba models are more suitable for larger houses, pet owners, or those willing to use robot vacuum together with a robot mop.

FAQ

Here are answers to the most common questions related to robot vacuums:

Why Do I Need a Robot Vacuum?
The benefits of owning a robot vacuum are numerous. When such appliances first appeared, they were pretty costly and weren’t a good fit for many households. Back then, robot vacuums were mostly bought by owners of pets or large houses that require constant cleaning. Today, robot vacuums have become more affordable and are a great alternative to traditional vacuums.


Robot vacuums can free you from some of the household cleaning tasks. They work according to a pre-set schedule, vacuuming your floor thoroughly. Modern vacuums also dock to recharge automatically, resuming from the same spot they stopped at. And if a family member accidentally makes a mess, you don’t have to stop what you’re doing and clean it up. Simply get the robot vacuum to take care of it.
Do Robot Vacuums Need Supervision?
Early robot vacuums used to bump into walls and suck in everything on their way, and required constant supervision. All of which eliminates the purpose of purchasing a robot vacuum – saving your time for something more important or fun. Modern robot vacuums don’t need any supervision due to advanced sensors and mobile app control. They detect obstacles and stairs, automatically adapt to surface changes, and can keep away from certain areas.
Which Factors Should I Consider When Choosing a Robot Vacuum?
The choice of a perfect robot vacuum depends greatly on our living arrangements. The first thing you should consider before the purchase is the size of your house. If you own a small space, you’ll likely suffice with a vacuum offering under 90 minutes run time and under 500 milliliter bin capacity. However, small yet cluttered apartments may require a model with more advanced sensors to avoid obstacles


Another point to think about is your floor surface. For plenty of carpets or uneven floors, you need a vacuum with a floating brush and automatic suction power control.


Households with kids or pets have very specific requirements for a vacuum. High dustbin capacity and non-tangling brushes are a must if you have pets. Custom no-go zones are extremely useful with kids who tend to leave small objects on the floor.
