iRobot Roomba 981 falls in price: Here you are currently saving a lot

The Roomba 981 from iRobot has been on the market for around three years. Nevertheless, it holds a strong position in our list of the best – but costs around a third less than the test winner. We show why this is and where you can get the vacuum cleaner robot at the cheapest price.

The iRobot Roomba 981 at a glance

The iRobot Roomba 981 is no longer the newest model on the market, but it is still one of the best: The Roomba 981 currently occupies 6th place on the CHIP best list – with an overall grade of 1.5 (“very good”) . Its particular strength is the extremely good navigation, but also the equipment and the suction power are impressive.

Our conclusion at the time of the test:

With the Roomba 981, iRobot brings many small improvements to the flagship model Roomba 980, which is identical in construction. In the test, we particularly like the now almost perfect navigation and new app functions. The robot is also a bit faster. On the other hand, it is disappointing that the suction power has decreased compared to the test over a year ago – at least in automatic mode. In addition, this version of the vacuum robot is very expensive. So there are hardly any reasons not to use the Roomba 980.Read the entire test.
