Each year, we test the newest smart robot vacuums on the market and identify the best ones for our readers. As part of our testing process, we take into account what these robots can do vs. what they cost and make sure they’re worth it.
Ecovacs Deebot 930
Top of the line
- HEPA filter
- Amazon and Google compatibility
- Wet mopping abilities
- Safe on low carpet, medium carpet, laminate, linoleum, and tiles
- No dirt detection
- No full bin indicator
The Deebot Ozmo 930 is one of Ecovac’s most feature-rich robot vacuums to date. It works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, plus it has a built-in wet mopping system. Though more expensive than similar products, including the Neato Botvac D80, it’s worth it.
Neato Botvac D80
Perfect for pet hair
- Extra large bin
- Simple to use
- Strong suction
- No app-controlled mapping
- No mopping capabilities
The Neato Botvac D80 is a no-nonsense robot vacuum cleaner that includes an extra large collection bin. It’s been designed specifically for pet owners who must deal with a lot of hair. Still, it doesn’t include many of the features found on newer vacuums that are about the same price.
It’s time to compare these smart robot vacuums from two of the biggest names in the industry: Ecovacs and Neato. Which one you end up purchasing will depend on what you need your vacuum for and how much you’re willing to spend.
Time to compare
As you’ll see, the Ecovacs Deebot Ozmo 930 contains many features not found on the Neato Botvac D80 for just a little more money. Because of this, it’s our recommended purchase.
|Ecovacs Deebot Ozmo 930||Neato Botvac D80|
|Warranty||1 year||1 year|
|Noise level||65 dB||64 dB|
|Battery capacity||3,200 mAh||4,200 mAh|
|Charge time||4 hours||Up to 3 hours|
|Run time between charges||110 minutes||60 minutes|
|Back to charger automatically?||Yes||Yes|
|Suction power||1,000 pa||2,000 pa|
|Dirt storage||450 mL||700 mL|
|Amazon Alexa compatibility||Yes||No|
|Google Assistant compatibility||Yes||No|
|Floor mapping through app||No||Yes|
The Neato Botvac D80 is notable for having a larger storage container and offering more suction power than the Deebot. The former means you don’t have to empty it as often and the latter suggests it can pick up more dirt on each pass, which might not be that important if you’re running your vacuum on a regular schedule.
For slightly more money, you can purchase the Deebot Ozmo 930 and get many more features like a HEPA filter, which is a specific kind of filter that can be helpful for people with allergies or asthma; a wet mopping option for cleaning bare floors; and voice integration so you can turn your vacuum on/off using Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
Even if these extra features aren’t important for your household, you should be aware the Deebot Ozmo 930 also has the advantage of being able to run 110 minutes between charges. The Neato model, by contrast, can only run 60 minutes before needing a charge.
Our bottom line: We believe the Deebot Ozmo 930 is worth the extra money; don’t skimp, get the better vacuum.
Ecovacs Deebot Ozmo 930
Perfect for families
Phenomenal app features
Deebot Ozmo 930 is perfect for families. The app features for blocking areas, setting cleaning zones, and manual control over movement help ensure that your home will get a great clean fit to your standards.
Neato Botvac D80
Expensive, given the competition
Despite offering a larger dust bin and stronger suction, the Neato Botvac D80 should be avoided unless you find a significant sale. If you can save $100 to $200, for example, off the regular print, it’s worth considering.
