'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Today, Amazon is running a flash deal on both the ILIFE W400s and the ILIFE W450 robot vacuums, with up to $100 off. You can read our review of the ILIFE W450 for more in-depth information before you buy. But you'd better hurry: the deal ends at midnight tonight!

This robot mop has a maximum cleaning area of 600 square feet, making it perfect for small apartment as well as high-traffic areas in larger homes like kitchens and mudrooms. It has a .85L holding tank for clean water and washing solution and a .9L tank for dirty water, making filling and emptying the unit a breeze.

The W450 is a bit more sophisticated than its cousin, the W400s. It features an integrated camera to avoid furniture and map the room for more efficient cleaning. It also works with Alexa for hands-free controls, which is perfect for when you're running out the door for work and your house is still a mess; you can just yell at Alexa to mop the floors. It has three cleaning modes: path for whole room messes, area for setting up specific boundaries, and spot for occasional messes.
