The best robot vacuums under $200

Robot vacuums make it so you have one less chore to do each day. Instead of lugging out a cumbersome upright vacuum and pushing it all over every area of your floor, you can simply press a button or ask Alexa or Google Home to start your robot. While robot vacuums don’t necessarily eliminate the need for an upright vacuum, they do reduce the frequency of required upright vacuum sessions, making them a periodic chore instead of a regular task.

When it comes to purchasing a robot vacuum, one of the biggest deterrents is price. It wasn’t too long ago when you’d be forced to pay $500 or more for a good robot vacuum. These gadgets have become more popular as they have added features you probably didn’t know they could do, and more competition has entered the market, so the price has drastically declined. We’ve gathered our picks for the best robot vacuums you can buy for $200 or less.

Just keep in mind that there will be several Prime Day deals that’ll be tempting to check out and consider. On top of that, the Prime Day robot vacuum deals are sure to contain even more models that will be under that $200 threshold.

Eufy RoboVac 11S Max

Anker Eufy RoboVac 11S Max review
Terry Walsh/Digital Trends

Eufy has its roots established in the entry-level segment of the market even though the popular smart home company has dipped its toes into the mid and upper range of the market with its handy robot vacuums. While the majority of its models tend to hover around the $350 range, you can still find a notable one under that $200 mark. The Eufy RoboVac 11S Max is that model, featuring all the necessities to help clean around the home.

What’s notable about this particular model is its sleek design, which at 2.85 inches tall allows it to get under tight spaces that otherwise prove impossible to access with other bots. That means that the Eufy RoboVac 11S Max can get underneath furniture to gobble up all the dust bunnies that accumulate and rarely ever get sucked up. Even though it relies on the older bump-and-move method of navigation, it can effectively traverse edges with ease with its cliff sensors — ensuring that it doesn’t fall from stairs.

When it comes to cleaning, you’ll have access to a spot-cleaning mode where the RoboVac 11S Max will continuously clean a certain area — perfect for those unexpected messes that require quick cleanups. With its underside cleaning brush and powerful suction, it’s still versatile enough to handle all your cleaning needs. Best of all, it won’t cost you a fortune.

Do you primarily have hard floors to clean in the home? If so, then two brushes are better than one. That’s what you can expect to find with the Ilife V3s Pro because it feature dual side sweeping brushes that funnel dirt and debris towards underside, instead of just relying on a single side sweeper. Best of all, the sub-$200 Ilife V3s Pro still offers a rich set of features that makes it a versatile cleaner for hard floors.

Various infrared sensors around the bot allow the Ilife V3s Pro to navigate safely around obstacles, such as furniture and pet bowls, so that it doesn’t get hung up on them. With three cleaning modes to choose from, auto, edge, and space mode, it can handle just about any cleanup on your hard floors. When it’s done, it’ll even navigate back to its base to recharge.

The Ilife V3s Pro can also be programmed to clean at specific times, so even if you forget or simply away, it can still do all of the cleaning on its own. Luckily, you don’t have to spend a fortune on picking this handy robot vacuum.

Perhaps one of the most feature-rich robot vacuums on this list, the Deebot N79S boasts a 110-minute battery life and compatibility with Alexa and Google Assistant. Plus, the Ecovacs Home app is one of the better robot vacuum apps when compared to those of other robots in the lower-to-mid price range. In the app, you can control the unit directly, set schedules, choose between different cleaning modes, check the status of the unit and accessories, and more.

The Deebot N79S doesn’t have the most advanced navigation, but it does have exceptional suction power, and it will keep your floors clean and tidy with regular use.
