With so many options to choose from, selecting the best vacuum cleaners is not an easy thing. In Digital Trends in Spanish We test regularly: to robots, wireless vacuum cleaners to wired vacuum cleaners. Actually, we will have tested about 80 units in recent years. Therefore, in the following list of the best vacuum cleaners on the market you will find different options: the best robot-vacuum cleaner, the most versatile, the best for pet hairs and better among the cheapest ones.
Dyson V10 Absolute
Why do we choose the Dyson V10?
The Dyson Digital V10 engine has a ceramic shaft (instead of steel), and rotates at 125,000 rpm. To grab smaller particles of dirt, the V10 has 14 cyclones arranged centrally for maximum airflow. In addition, it has a coupling, which means you can mount it on your back, and grab it when you need it.
The Absolute model comes with several accessories, including a wall bracket, a combination tool, a cracking tool, a mini motorized tool and a soft mini brush to remove dust. This makes it easy to clean your home from top to bottom. If you have pets, the V10 is powerful enough to grab the smallest hairs of your carpets and furniture, while the entire machine's filtration system helps prevent allergens from being released into the air.
There are two main disadvantages of the V10. The battery life (which reaches a maximum of about 60 minutes) and the price. But even taking these factors into account, the V10 Absolute remains one of the best vacuum cleaners in terms of quality and performance.

The best vacuum cleaner for carpets and wood floors
Why should you buy it? Wooden floors? Carpet? Multiple types of stairs? Between the sofa cushions? This vacuum can with everything.
Who is it for? Homeowners who appreciate value and versatility.
Why do we choose it? If in your home there is a mixture of wooden floors, carpets and stairs and if you are obsessed with cleaning and vacuum the groove between the cushions, do not turn it over. It is the most versatile vacuum and costs $ 200 dollars. It weighs 14 pounds and comes with different accessories such as a special cleaning brush to collect the hair of pets and an elastic tube that allows you to reach places difficult to access. You can even separate the body from the structure to lift it which makes it very easy to handle. Its technology to capture allergenic agents allows you to capture the most dust in your 2-liter container. You don't have to spend a fortune to have the best vacuum
iRobot Roomba i7 Plus
The best robot vacuum cleaner
Why should you buy it? The Roomba i7 not only sucks all the dirt, but also cleanses itself, making it the easiest way to keep your home always bright.
Who is it for? For anyone who wants to clean their floors without moving a finger.
Why do we choose it? Let's admit it once and for all: having to vacuum is a nuisance. Having a large vertical vacuum makes it a little easier, s; but there is nothing like not having to vacuum at all. That's where the robot vacuum cleaners come in, which can clean your floors while you cook, fold your clothes or just sit on your couch and relax.
However, most robot vacuum cleaners still have a defect: nobody likes to have to empty the rubbish bin after each use. The Roomba i7 Plus solves this problem with its emptying base. When the robot returns to the base, it sucks and puts the dirt in a closed bag. The bag is large enough to hold 30 deposits of dirt.
However, the i7 Plus is not just an automatic vacuum cleaner-robot: it is much more than that. It has a better processor, more RAM and more cleaning power than its predecessors. With a brush to loosen the dirt and another to put it in the machine, you will really notice your clean floors. Its intelligent mapping function makes the robot memorize every room in your home, learning to clean the areas of greater traffic. The i7 Plus cleans pet hair very well, and does a better job than most robot vacuum cleaners in collecting dirt from the baseboards. The filtration system captures dust and allergens to keep your air clean too. Do you want to clean your house while you are away? You can control the i7 plus remotely through the iRobot Home application on your device. You can also control it through Alexa or Google Assistant.
Shark S87 Robotic Cleaning System
The best vacuum cleaner for its price
Why should you buy it? This system combines a robotic vacuum cleaner and a powerful and lightweight handheld computer for the most efficient cleaning.
Who is it for? For those who want an all-in-one vacuum system at a reasonable price.
Why do we choose it? Shark S87 vacuum cleaners are excellent for floor cleaning, but can't really clean up? What about your furniture, curtains and dust spots that accumulate in the corners of the ceiling? You cannot send a robot vacuum cleaner through the walls to clean those areas.
The Shark S87 includes a robot vacuum cleaner and a lightweight handheld vacuum (1.4 pounds) in its charging station. You can say: “Alexa, tell Shark to vacuum”, or “OK Google, tell Shark to vacuum”, and then take the hand vacuum and clean and dust the areas that the robot cannot reach. The handheld vacuum cleaner comes with an accessory for the pet's hair, one for the slits and one for the dust, so you can use it at home to remove dust or collect your pet's hair from furniture. You can even vacuum your car with the manual vacuum.
The robot has a large capacity trash bin and comes with 8 feet of contour stripes so you can block areas where you don't want the robot to work. Because it has Smart Sensor Navigation 2.0, the robot can work around obstacles in your home with ease. Our only major complaint about the S87 is that the useful life of the battery could be a little longer in the manual vacuum, which can be avoided if you turn it off when you're not actively vacuuming (many people have it on all the time, while walk with her in hand). In general, for $ 400 dollars, this vacuum system is a very complete option.
Dyson Cinetic Big Ball animal + allergy
The best for pet hairs
Why should you buy it? You will never have to clean another filter with this vacuum.
Who is it for? Pet owners with allergic children.
Why did we choose it? If you have pets and allergic children, this $ 599 dollar vacuum will help you a lot. It comes without a filter and therefore you don't have to worry about cleaning it. The dial allows the device to move easily when you vacuum near furniture or corners. You should not buy replacements and have a 2.15 liter tank. Sofa cleaning accessories make it more versatile and since it is specifically designed to capture pet hair, it also picks it up from sofas.
Bissell OnePass Vacuum
The vacuum cleaner below $ 100 dollars
Why should you buy it?Because this vacuum cleaner clean your floors, not your wallet.
Who is it for?For someone looking for a basic vacuum cleaner, but that works well.
Why do we choose it? If you want a basic and cheap vacuum cleaner this is your best option. It costs only $ 90 dollars but that does not mean that it comes without accessories and different modalities. The Bissell OnePass uses a system of different suction cycles that allows you to use it on sofas and stairs easily. It comes with a 2.27 liter tank and a foam filter that can be easily washed. It comes with rope, so your freedom of movement is limited.
How do we choose them
Several factors were taken into account when we made this list. Vacuums had to be powerful, but not too loud; they had to be versatile, but not too expensive; And the most important factor of course was how well they cleaned our carpet.
Digital Trends uses a reference process similar to those used by manufacturers. It's quite simple: the first thing we do is put several substances in the soil. Then we spread it on the carpet. Then, we put the vacuum to work.
In addition to demonstrating an admirable cleaning power, these vacuum cleaners also represent a combination of form, function and value.
If we cannot test a vacuum by ourselves, we do a rigorous investigation on-line, reading reviews, user comments and other indicators to see if a certain vacuum is worth your money.
