The editors didn't like

  • It didn't perform as well as the $700 Roomba 880 we reviewed in 2013. We also want to see features like a remaining battery life readout

  • It'd be unfair to write off the Roomba 980 entirely. Between the seriously powerful suction, the HEPA filter, and the strong two-hour battery this is one of the best robot vacuums around for sheer cleaning - except in the corners where the round design wo...

  • The iRobot Roomba 980 is one of the more powerful bots that we've tested. Regimented automated cleaning is impressive and this robot cleans well on a variety of surfaces - adjusting suction when it needs to - allowing it to deliver an efficient and effect...

  • As expensive as it is, there's no denying that iRobot's Roomba 980 is a gloriously advanced automated vacuum. With its environment mapping and self navigation, the latest Roomba never ceases to impress – watching it automatically guide itself back to its...

  • Can't cut into corners, Shaken up by shag pile rugs
  • As far as robot vacuums go, the Roomba 980 is excellent. It cleans fairly thoroughly, looks great, doesn't make too much noise, and is super-simple to use. Suction or sense of direction might not quite match Dyson's all-seeing 360 Eye, but it comes very c...
