Neato D7 Connected and Roomba 980 is the latest top-level robot vacuum cleaners.

What is similar between the two?

Both are coming with smart technology that helps to navigate around, create a map and build the most efficient path of cleaning.

Both have the strong suction power that provides picking up dust and dirt on carpets and hardwood floors. Neato and Roomba are compatible with Alexa and Google Home can be controlled via the apps or voice commands.

Both robots have recharge&resume feature.

Roomba 980 has the Dual Virtual Wall in the box while Neato app allows creating a virtual wall, needless to say, that almost all robots from Neato have magnetic stripes that keep devices from the place it shouldn't go.

Neither of them does thick carpets and rugs. If you have one of those in your place - expect your home assistant getting stuck. Fairly to notice, there is no robot vacuum on the market that would be able to clean high-pile carpets.

What is different?

Rubber rollers Roomba 980 come with are tangle-free that doesn't need to get rid of hair after every cleaning session. On the other hand, Neato's Spiral Combo brushes were designed for multi-flooring surfaces doing a good job of picking things up.

All the Neato's robots come with the D-shape for better corners cleaning and because of the shape, the machines get stuck in tight places. As well as Roomba 980 get stuck though.

Neato has a larger dustbin capacity. However, either Neato and Roomba's dust box is full of dust after one cleaning session so it needed emptying.

Roomba is louder than Neato.

What consumers complain about

If you have a big house be ready to wait before your robot vacuum will finish its job (we are talking about both machines here). With the recharge & resume function the device cleans in about an hour, then gets recharge which takes some time too, returns to finish its session which also takes some time.

Is it good or bad? Thanks to the app both robots have your home assistant could do its job while you're away, so who cares?

Lastly - the price. Roomba 980 is $100 more expensive than Neato D7 Connected. You can get the Roomba on Amazon for about $900, while Neato costs around $800.
