Choosing the right robotic vacuum for your home is often confusing because you don’t know how to compare the cost to the features.
Depending on how much you want to spend, you may find that you can afford a state of the model vacuum that comes loaded with bells and whistles or that you need to stick with one that lacks some of those features but is more affordable.
In this article, I’ll offer a direct comparison of the Roomba 890 vs 960 to show you which ones come out on top in a head to head battle between the two vacuum cleaners.

Smart shoppers use comparisons to make sure that they get the best products and that they don’t spend money on a vacuum that won’t work in their homes.
As you look at an iRobot Roomba 890 review, you’ll find that customers talk about how long the battery lasted, what features they liked the best and what made them wish they spent more on a better vacuum.
Some of the same information is available in an iRobot Roomba 960 review too.
When we compared these two models, we kept coming back to the Roomba 960 because of both the battery life and the double cleaning power.
With the 890, you may need to let the vacuum pass through your home once and then charge the battery again before sending it out. The 960 can make two passes through your home on a single charge and then recharge itself.
In a compare of other Roomba models, the 960 comes out on top because of the 2.0 technology that adapts to the design and layout of your home. Both the 890 and older models have an older version of that technology.
If you can afford the cost and want a good vacuum, the Roomba 960 is the best.
