Consensus

our Verdict

Top critics were pleased with the Shark EZ Robot Self-Empty AV911S vacuum, and they recommended it for bare floors. They were happy with its 0.02 kPa suction and large self-emptying 0.85L dirt compartment.

Testers at Consumer Reviews hailed its 145-minute battery life during testing. However, if you need better battery life, explore the Shark ION Robot R76 review.

Analysts lauded the 86% large debris removal rate on bare floors but criticized its 66% rate on low-pile carpets. It has a companion app but doesn’t support virtual barriers.

Browse the Shark AI Robot review if you prefer app-controlled virtual barriers. The vacuum uses mapping to navigate systemically. Check out the Shark ION F80 review if you prefer a maneuvrable stick vacuum.

Reviewers at Mashable praised its low 61.0 dBA maximum noise level and self-emptying dust bin. However, this model uses a non-HEPA filter, and some small particles leaked during air quality tests.

It also won’t clean the stairs. Consider the Shark Cordless Vertex Pro Powered Lift-Away review if you have a staircase.
