Expert Reviews

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.

The Roomba S9+ is here! But is it worth the money? Read our Roomba S9+ review, see how it performed in our tests, and if it's right for you.

Pros

  • Roomba i7 model
  • Automatic emptying dust bin, much like the
  • Excellent cleaning performance scored 99 average on our tests
  • Square front body style may provide advantages at cleaning edges and corners
  • Smart navigation with zoned cleaning and digital mapping

Cons

  • Not immune to getting stuck though it is better than most
  • Very expensive price point

Yes, it is expensive but if you want the best, then get your wallet out. The S9+ is as close to perfection as automatic vacuuming gets – it’s super sucky, super easy to use and super hands-free. Noise is a slight issue. You don’t want to be in the same room when the S9+ is doing its thing. But luckily you can schedule it to run when you’re not home. It even empties itself; what a time to be alive!
