The Roomba 890 review is intended to reveal features of the mid-range device that comes with the average suction power and a pretty small dust bin. However, the Wi-Fi and Alexa-compatible gadget is d...Read More
The comparison of Roomba 890 vs 980 helps reveal differences between two auto-charging devices with three cleaning stages and Wi-Fi connectivity to control them remotely via an app.
The first eye-catching thing in testing Roomba 980 vs 890 is the 980’s larger suction – 1670 pa versus 980’s 1000 pa due to the 980’s powerful Gen 3 motor.
Both models feature AeroForce filtration systems to eliminate allergens and the smallest particles (10 microns) from the air. They have advanced brushes on the bottom to remove dirt and pet hair completely from any type of flooring.
The dust container’s capacity of the 980 is twice as much as the 890’s one – 600 ml versus 300 ml respectively, meaning the necessity to empty the container of the 890 a couple of times during its work.
It’s rather difficult to compare the robots’ using area. According to the specs, the 890 can clean up to 1,000 sq. ft. and the 980 handles 1,900 sq. ft. Besides, the 980 has iAdapt 2.0 tech to find a shortcut and remove more debris in less time. However, much depends on the layout, amount of dirt and hair, and types of the surfaces.
Both units are fitted with the infrared tech and can rotate 360 degrees that let them avoid tangling and collisions resulting in losing time and power.
Having iRobot Roomba 890 vs 980 tested, the 890’s silent performance has been noted. No audible noise distracts from working, speaking or even sleeping. At the same time, the 980 produces average noise when it cleans hardwood floor and it becomes too noisy when it works on the carpets.
Both vacuums cope with their task on low and medium pile coverings, but they can’t cope with deep cleaning on high pile carpets. They struggle with removing such substances as sugar or sand from the mats.
The iRobot Roomba 980 is better robot vacuum in this comparison. Check iRobot Roomba 980 price
