Why we like it

For a solid cheap Shark option, skip the outdated Shark ION and opt for the Matrix instead. For less than $200, you’re securing LiDAR-powered smart home mapping and virtual boundaries, plus Matrix technology, which attacks debris from multiple angles in a crosshatch pattern to grab anything that was missed on the original pass. On top of the thorough spot cleaning, Shark claims that the Matrix packs 50% more suction power than the Roomba i3.

Why we like it

Sifting through all of the Roborock models on sale this week is admittedly overwhelming. But all you need to know about the 2022 Q5+ is that it’s Roborock’s cheapest self-emptier, now made even more affordable with a $200 coupon for Prime members on top of the $100 discount Amazon was already sporting. It skips mopping capabilities but still uses LiDAR to remember a map of your home and deploys pretty hearty suction for the price.

Why we like it

The Roomba j5 series are the cheapest Roombas with obstacle avoidance tech that can steer clear of phone chargers, socks, and pet waste. This capability, which we first experienced when testing the Combo j7+, will be game-changing if your previous gripe with robot vacuums was that you had to clean up before they could clean. Compared to the j7 series, the j5’s cameras aren’t quite as precise, and still may require you to pick up things like socks or put a virtual barrier around pet bowls.

This is one of iRobot’s Swap and Mop models that requires you physically click the water tank on and off to enact mopping. Still, you’re essentially getting mopping capabilities for $50-ish extra, as the non-mopping Roomba j7+ is sitting at a close sale price of $448 compared to the Combo j5+’s $499.99 price tag.
