'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.

This Shark ION robot vacuum has dropped to $129 -- its lowest price ever

Clean up your floors hands-free with Google Assistant and Alexa and enjoy big savings thanks to an unexpected sale.
Written by Rebecca Isaacs, Staff Writer on

Vacuuming can be time consuming and a lot of work, especially when you have to lug around a large heavy vacuum. Worse yet, no one likes to trip on the cords. If you haven't tried a robot vacuum yet, this handy tool cleans up your floors so you don't have to, and the Shark AV752 ION is one of the best. It's also on sale for its lowest price to date at $129.

The Shark utilizes three brushes to clean a variety of surfaces, from tile to carpeting, while keeping your floors clean. You can feel easy knowing that the brushes are soft against hardwood floors, too.

Plus, the Shark can sense objects, taking care to avoid stairs and bumps. With the ability to communicate with it via hands-free voice controls with Alexa or Google Assistant, you can also make sure it gets every last speck of allergens and dirt from your floors. Or, simply use the accompanying app to let it know when you run -- even when you're not home.

The Shark AV752 ION runs for up to 120 minutes on a single charge, and with over 7,600 ratings averaging 4.3-stars on Amazon, it's a trustworthy tool to use in your home when you don't have time – or don't want – to vacuum.

Right now, the vacuum is priced at $129, which is its lowest price ever. With Amazon Prime Day coming up, we don't expect this vacuum to drop any further, as it seems this is one of Amazon's early Prime Day deals for robot vacuums. If you want to pick it up, we recommend doing it sooner rather than later, as stock is limited.
