I think you’ll agree with me when I say:

It’s REALLY hard to choose an air purifier with all the options available!

Or is it?

Well, it turns out, that after years and hundreds of hours of testing & reviewing, we have strong opinions about what makes the best air filtration system: level of purification, efficiency, and maintenance.

The Hoover Rogue 970 (On special until end Jun, 2020) has all the qualities and features, giving it an added advantage and an edge over its competitors.

Quick Summary of the Hoover Rogue 970

I’m not just (a) robot, I’m a smart vacuum that comes fully loaded with the latest and greatest tech. I have some pretty impressive features that really set me apart from those other robots. I have Robart Mapping Technology with Memory, meaning I intelligently navigate and remember your floorplan instead of just randomly bumping around.

The Good & the Bad


  • Vacuum bin is large, and the suction/cleaning is similar to other robotic vacuums.
  • Battery life is great.
  • It always does a good job getting back to home base without getting stuck somewhere.


  • Fix the App/programming and this product can be great.

Key Features

  • Robart Technology with Memory Navigation – I use a high-tech laser to navigate through your home, meaning I’m not a dumb robot that randomly runs into things.
  • SmartWall Technology – Probably my most impressive feature. You can create virtual boundaries in the Hoover Home App to customize what areas are off limits to me.
  • Hoover Home App – By downloading my app, you can access me from anywhere since I know you can’t stand to be away from me.
  • Dirt Detection – My mission is cleaning so when I detect excessive dirt (yes I can do that), I’ll slow down over that area to maximize cleaning.
  • Tri-Clean System – I’m not just a robot. I’m a smart vacuum so I utilize a trifecta of agitation, brushing and suction to pick up dirt, dust and pet hair on multiple floor types.

Useful Product Info

  • Product Dimensions: 13.6 x 13.6 x 3.8 Inches
  • Product Weight: 7.5 Pounds

Common Questions

  • Does this work on shag rugs?

We do not recommend using Rogue on shag rugs as it could get stuck. However, depending on the pile of the rug, Rogue might still be able to traverse and clean it.

  • Can i use without wi-fi?

Yes, you can use Hoover Rogue without Wi-Fi but you will not be able access certain features like SmartWall, seeing your map, firmware updates and the ability to change the performance modes.
