Consensus

our Verdict

Critics lauded the LG CordZero A9 Ultimate and endorsed it for bare floors and carpets. It removed an outstanding 100% of the large debris from bare floors and 83% on low-pile carpets, producing up to 0.85 kPa of suction power.

However, it performs dismally on high-pile carpets, removing just 53% of the large debris during testing. See the Miele Triflex HX1 review for a model that performs better on high-pile carpets.

Reviewers from Choice were happy that it has a HEPA filter and it prevented dirt from leaking during air quality tests. Weighing just 6.06 lbs, this unit proved portable during experiments.

Analysts at Product Review hailed its relatively low 71.0 dBA noise level and two detachable battery packs that yield a combined total of 74 minutes of battery life.

Equipped with a turbo brush, the Samsung Jet 90 Complete performs better on high-pile carpets (75% large particle removal rate) than the LG CordZero A9 Ultimate (53% large particle removal rate). However, the LG runs for longer (74 minutes) than the 61-minute battery life of the Samsung vacuum.
