Neato and iRobot are at the top of the robot vacuum cleaner manufacturers list; there’s no denying that. But who would win the 1v1 matchup? To find the answer to that question, we set the article in a Neato vs Roomba fashion, with iRobot Roomba 960 representing iRobot and Neato Botvac D7 representing Neato Robotics. Who wins?

Comparison Table for Neato and Roomba
Neato D7 is more efficient and more effective vacuum cleaner, thanks to the more advanced navigation, long battery life, and larger dustbin.
Despite losing the performance duel, Roomba is still a more valuable option. It is less expensive, offers almost the same performance, and is more robust and more consistent than Neato.
Compatibility with Alexa, and Google Assistant, connection to a smartphone app, Virtual Walls, scheduling: both of these vacuums have these characteristics.
Pet Hair Vacuuming
Neato is slightly more efficient than Roomba when it comes to pet hair collection.
Roomba is more beginner/user-friendly. The app is fairly easy to use, and the Vacuum itself acts very autonomously.
Taking care of Roomba (maintenance, part replacing, etc.) costs less time and money.
Before we wrap this up, we should say that this article didn’t cover all of the Roomba’s and Neato’s features. Instead, we focused mostly on the vacuuming power and performance, since these are vacuums we are reviewing.
And to those that didn’t know, these aren’t the only vacuums made by these companies; there are plenty of other models out there, some better, some worse, some cheaper, some more expensive.
Still, if you seek a durable, robust and sophisticated robotic vacuum, Roomba 960 is an excellent choice. It is ideal for small house owners, pet owners, allergy sufferers, and for people who want their house cleaned for an affordable price with minimum expenses.
