For a versatile floor cleaner that truly does it all, this Lefant vacuum is tough to beat. It works well on hardwood, carpet and tile to sweep away dust, dirt and crumbs with the touch of a button.

This powerful robot vacuum comes with a convenient handheld remote that lets you select your preferred settings. Using the the Lefantlife app or Alexa and Google Assistant, you can easily control your vacuum to suit your needs, including start and stop cleaning by voice commands. You can even program a dedicated cleaning schedule that fits your lifestyle and won't cause noisy disturbances when you don't want them.

What people are saying

This popular robotic vacuum has been winning over Amazon shoppers thanks to its excellent value and impressive performance that "matches any of the more expensive name brands." It's earned a 4.2-star rating from more than 400 reviewers, receiving top marks for its cleaning abilities and minimal noise.

"For under $200 it cannot be beat," shared one customer, who added that the vacuum is "lightweight, user friendly and does the job."

"Amazing with pet hair," one shopper wrote.

Reviewers say that it works well on a variety of surfaces, including hardwood, laminate and carpet. One major benefit is this vacuum's slim design, which easily fits into hard-to-clean areas, like under the couch and bed.

While shoppers have been impressed by the Lefant vacuum's quiet suction and cleaning power, they do note that it comes with some drawbacks. Despite the anti-collision sensors, reviewers note that it does "get stuck" if you have lots of furniture on the ground, and can be prone to bumping into things.

Verdict

If you're someone who is tired of vacuuming or can't lift and push your unit anymore, it may be time to give a robotic vacuum a try. The Lefant is a great option for anyone who wants to try robot vacuums without paying a fortune — especially at its current Amazon sale price.

If you do have a room with many obstacles that could get it in the way of cleaning, you may just want to take reviewers' advice and do a quick declutter before running this vacuum.
