Pros Good at navigating, solid set of smart featuresGreat at picking up pet hair, cleaning carpets, doesn’t miss spotsFantastic at cleaning hard and soft floors, packed with smart featuresAmazing at navigating, covers all of your home, solid smart connect abilityGreat value, excellent cleaning abilities
Cons Abysmal at collecting pet hair, cleaning performance isn’t as good as the top modelsExceptionally expensivePricey, struggles at navigating in confined places, little rough on furnitureSo-so carpet cleaning skills, below average at cleaning hard floors, poor at picking up pet hairGood, not great at navigating
Bottom Line The **Roomba 960** isn’t a bad robot vacuum, but it definitely did not impress us overallIf you want a top-notch robot vacuum that can handle pet hair with ease, then this is the vacuum for youWhile this robot struggled cleaning around the tighter spaces in your home, the cleaning power of the D7 can’t be beatWhile this robot handles complicated room layouts with ease and practically never needs assistance, it might take two passes to get your home acceptable cleanThe D4 is the best choice by far if you are shopping on a budget but don’t want to sacrifice performance
