What experts are saying

The iRobot Roomba s9+ is good-looking, intelligent and powerful enough to replace a human using a corded vacuum cleaner. But you’ll pay a premium for a mapping robot vacuum that obeys your every command.

Pros
  • Attractive, premium design
  • Mapping was quick and easy
  • Easy-to-use mapping controls in app
Cons
  • Loud vacuum, loud dustbin
  • Very expensive
  • Have to buy replacement disposal bags

Just when we thought Roombas couldn’t get any better, iRobot went and did it again with the Roomba s9+. They already wowed us with the self-emptying technology of the i7+. We were still coming off that high when they took it a step further with the new s series.

Pros
  • More powerful suction
  • Better corner cleaning
  • Better allergy containment
  • Longer battery life
  • Integrates with Braava Jet m6 mop
  • Works great on carpet
  • Improved navigation
Cons
  • Expensive
  • No carry handle
  • Not for those who aren’t tech-savvy
  • Needs good WiFi connection
  • Loud, especially when emptying
  • Corner brush wears out quickly

The super-smart, self-emptying bot-vac just keeps getting better at cleaning and navigating, as well as sucking the money out of your wallet.

The iRobot s9+ is the most advanced robot vacuum around, but it will be out of reach of many budgets.

Pros
  • Self-emptying dustbin
  • Excellent navigation and cleaning
  • Can create and store up to 10 floor plans
Cons
  • Clean Base requires more floor space than conventional dock
  • Very expensive
