About

The iRobot Roomba i7+ is part of the Vacuum Cleaners test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Robotic Vacuums models like the Roomba i7+ are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Carpet Shows how much surface litter (cereal, rice, and peas) and embedded dust the vacuum picked up from a medium-pile carpet.

Bare floors Indicates the vacuum's ability to remove surface debris from a bare laminate floor.

Navigation A composite score that includes combined coverage over multiple runs, clearance under furniture and obstacle and entrapment avoidance.

Specs

Pattern

Pattern

The pathway the robotic vacuum follows to clean our test areas. In an open area, some models travel in a grid-like pattern in the area until they encounter obstacles. Other models appear to move randomly. Grid & Random models use a combination of both methods.

Grid
Clearance

Clearance

The height, rounded up to the nearest half-inch, of the shortest vertical space the robotic vacuum could enter while operating.

3.6
WiFi/Cellular connectivity

WiFi/Cellular connectivity

Whether or not a model is connected via WiFi/cellular data.

Yes
Run time

Run time

Reflects the average time it took the robotic vacuum on its max-clean setting to clean our greater than 600 square foot test room over 3 test runs. This time does not include charging time for the robot vacuums.
