Robot vacuums can be a convenient way to keep your home clean, especially if you're someone who prefers to spend your time doing other things instead of constantly vacuuming or mopping

They're compact, don't take up too much space, and can recharge on their own. Plus, many robot vacuums come with a slim height making them easy to access underneath sofas, beds, and other nooks and crannies.

Although they can't fully replace the deep-cleaning power of traditional vacuums, they still work well to keep the home clean regularly with just the press of a button.

Here's a list of robot vacuums you can get online with good reviews:

1. Xiaomi Mi Robot G1 - RM619

Well known for its products, Xiaomi has quite a few robot vacuum options offering different specifications. This particular version, also known as the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop Essential, is considered the more affordable model.

The higher range includes the Xiaomi Mijia 1C (RM909) and the Xiaomi Mi Pro (RM1,399). If you want to check which best suits your home, there are several YouTube videos explaining the differences between each one.

The iRobot Roombas have got quite a few good reviews on them. The iSeries, in particular, has features such as imprint smart mapping technology, where it can intelligently map out its surroundings to determine the best cleaning solution. One thing to take note of is that this model only does dry cleaning, meaning it acts as more of a vacuum than a mop. If you're looking for a robot mop, check out the iRobot Braava series.

Unlike the iRobot Roomba 980, which can deep clean carpets, this i7 model does not carry that option. However, it is compatible with the Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal, which means it can dispose of the garbage on its own, without you needing to do anything.  

Each iRobot model comes with different specifications, and some are more affordable than others. So do check which best suits your home before purchasing.
