Comparing the Roomba i6+ and i7+: Which Should You Buy?

As you begin your robot vacuum research, two models likely popping up are the feature-packed Roomba i6+ and i7+ vacuums. They promise high-end performance with serious convenience from their self-emptying bases. But with sticker prices crossing that $500 threshold, this is no casual purchase. You want confidence you’re choosing the right cleaner for your needs and home.

To help weigh the differences, I’ve tested and compared the iRobot units head-to-head across 10 key categories. Read on for the full breakdown on which model offers the best value upgrade for your floors.

And when evaluating overall value:

  • The Roomba i6+ costs less yet offers stronger suction for carpet cleaning
  • The i7+ has extra filters and bags, but for $40 more the upgrades may not warrant the cost
  • The i6+ strikes a great balance of power and convenience for whole home cleaning

So if simplifying your floorcare ranks top priority, go with the iRobot Roomba i6+ robot vacuum. Let its smart features and hearty performance give you more time actually enjoying your home rather than just maintaining it day after day. I think you‘ll find it a satisfying upgrade making your home tidier and healthier with less effort on your part.
