Next Generation of Vacuum Cleaner : Roomba

The most interesting feature offered on the Roomba 880 is iRobot's newly designed AeroForce cleaning system. It includes two bristle-free extractors that rotate inward toward one another to speed airflow and increase suction. There's also a high-efficiency vacuum, and a new XLife battery that claims to last much longer.

The display on the top of the vacuum includes the following buttons: Dock, Clock, Schedule, and Spot. Hit the Dock button and your Roomba will return to Home Base to charge. Select Clock and you can set the day, hour, and minute. Choose Schedule and you can program a specific cleaning routine for your Roomba to tackle every week. And the unique Spot option targets small cleaning areas -- it rotates outward 3 feet from its starting point and then returns back to where it began to deep clean a particular section of floor.

The good: The iRobot Roomba 880 replaces its predecessor's bristly brushes with rubbery "extractors" as part of the new AeroForce cleaning system. This brushless technology removes debris better than previous iterations and keeps maintenance to a minimum.

The bad: The bin is supposedly larger than in previous Roomba models, but it still fills up too quickly when you're dealing with dust and shedding pets. That, and it costs $699.

The bottom line: The Roomba 880 is the most well-rounded, capable bot we've encountered so far, but the $449 Neato Robotics XV Signature Pro still wins the pet hair performance test on all flooring surfaces.
