A ro­bot vacuum needs to do two things well: suck up lots of dirt and nav­i­gate your home suc­cess­fully so you never have to worry about it. The Roomba 980 was very good at the first and OK at the sec­ond. You can pro­gram a clean­ing sched­ule through its app or just hit the main but­ton and it will clean the house and re­turn to the base unit to charge. Its low pro­file made it bet­ter than some units at get­ting un­der fur­ni­ture and while it nav­i­gated most fur­ni­ture suc­cess­fully it some­times got stuck on power cords and once tried to vacuum the dog’s tail. $1499 / HARVEYNORMAN.COM.AU
